** At the end of the fight he appears to [[{{Badass}} remain unflinching]] as an enemy attack comes flying towards his face only to stop mere inches away. His PostVictoryCollapse reveals he ''probably couldn't have dodged even if he wanted to.''

* In the very-first episode of ''{{Thundercats}}'', the Mutants invade the Thundarian flagship, seeking to steal the Sword of Omens, and particularly the Eye Of Thundara set in its hilt. When they find it, it lies in the hands of a young Lion-O, and when he tries to threaten them, they laughingly reply that "You can barely hold that sword, much less lift it." Which is, of course, the sword's cue to [[PowerGlows start glowing]]. Moments later, Lion-O is swinging the full-sized sword around despite his young age, and the Mutants are running scared.

* ''[[HisDarkMaterials Northern Lights]]'': Lyra sets up a fight-to-the-death between Iorek Byrnison and the usurper of the throne of the Armored Bears, Iofur, in a last ditch effort to help Iorek, only to realize later that Iorek, after a battle with cliff-ghasts and days of journeying through the tundra with no food and rest, will not be in the best condition to fight. The alethiometer eventually [[EmpathicWeapon gets tired of telling her]] she has nothing to worry about.

* In ''Webcomic/KillSixBillionDemons'', the PhysicalGoddess Mother Om [[http://killsixbilliondemons.com/comic/wielder-of-names-6-118/ taunts her rival, recently-empowered sorority girl Alison]], with a variation: not only can't she stand, our heroine is so frightened she can hardly ''speak''.

* In ''Manga/Brave10'', in the finale of the sequel, [[spoiler:several of the Braves are yelling at Rokuro to stop [[CastFromHitPoints casting from HP]] and stay down as [[PhysicalGod Susanoo approaches]]. This ends up leading to Kakei's HeroicSacrifice instead.]]

* In the {{Dragonlance}} series, Raistlin Majere is a rare case of [[InvertedTrope the villain]] suffering from this. Suffering from the most severe IncurableCoughOfDeath in all of fiction because of his Test, Raistlin is almost constantly on the verge of keeling over or being blown away by a stiff breeze. Even Crysania, when she opposed him at first, sees him as a pitiable figure. And when Caramon confronts him in the Abyss, Raistlin had been burnt, stabbed, frozen, sheared and skewered to within an inch of his life, and yet Caramon still holds back. Not only because of lingering brotherly concern, but because ''even then'' Raistlin is still dangerous. 98% of his magic had been expended, but that last 2% was still enough to be worried about, not to mention his dagger of last resort that he had no compunctions to using.
