* {{Heroclix}} both Franklin Richards and [=LiAnn=] were given the God Amongst Pogs status because of their low cost, their seeming inability to do damage and the anecdotal stories of them knocking out super villains and heroes several orders of magnitude above their power level.

* Three words: FanFic/OldManHenderson. This... gentleman, has a legendary reputation among ''TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu'' players. Originally the brainchild of a player stuck in a brutally grimdark campaign with a bad GM, Old Man Henderson was a heavily {{Min Max|ing}}ed Schizophrenic Scotsman who claimed to have fought in [[TheVietnamWar Vietnam]] (he didn't; he would've been far too young to sign up at the time) who joined the party because he wrongly believed that some cultists of Hastur were responsible for stealing his garden gnomes. His finer moments include dropping a Yacht on a penthouse full of Cthulhu cultists, killing several cultists (along with every other PlayerCharacter in that session) with a tanker truck full of C4, taking out a Shoggoth single-handedly with his trusty shotgun, and '''[[KilledOffForReal permanently killing]] [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu Hastur]]''' by luring him into an ice rink filled with explosives and detonating them. And that was how Old Man Henderson won at ''Call of Cthulhu''.

*** The Orks pass along rumors of Yarrick being able to kill with a glance. Yarrick simply thought "Good idea" and installed a ''fucking laser'' into the bionic eye made to replace the original he lost fighting Orks. This is after he also had his hand replaced with a ''Power Klaw''[[note]]Not just any Power Klaw, but the one from Warboss Ghazkull himself.[[/note]] usually reserved for Ork Warbosses about three times his size. This is not a claim. This is actual, in-game ''canon''.

** The ''[=OotS=]'' forum is attempting to turn Eldrad Ulthran into the man who caused everything in the universe, along the lines of "God created Earth, Chuck Norris created God, Rick Wakeman composed Chuck Norris, and Eldrad Ulthran gave Rick piano lessons."

*** The speed with which this meme has infiltrated the fandom is quite astonishing. It would have taken some sort of tactical genius t- CREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED!
** Then we get to his Cousin, Lord General Castor (of VideoGame/DawnOfWar II Fame) who is slowly turning into this trope, it helps that his trophy wall is the largest and most complete archive of all Tyranid species that have been encountered by the Imperium so far.
** And lets not forget Governor-General Vance Stubbs, with his famous RousingSpeech. Even if he did [[MemeticMutation lose one hundred baneblades...]]
** Pfff, everyone knows the baneblades were just hidden by Creed.

[[SayMyName CREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED!]] Ursakar Creed gets treated as a brilliant MaryTzu who can hide just about anything, ''anywhere''. Hiding Leman Russ tanks behind lampposts, hiding squads of Stormtroopers in the reader's bathroom, disguising a Baneblade as a therapist, you name it.

* Doctor Kromm, the line editor of ''{{GURPS}}'', [[http://forums.sjgames.com/showthread.php?t=19833 has a cult following]].
* Many, many people in ''LegendOfTheFiveRings'', but the greatest of them is Toku. Following his elevation to memetic badass-hood, he was elevated by the tournament wins (which determine storyline in ''[=L5R=]'') to canon badass. Originally a peasant acting as a samurai, Toku ended up becoming a recognized samurai, hero of two wars, captain of the Imperial Guard, founder of his own clan, Empire-renowned legal and moral authority, and, posthumously, a god. All of this because people thought a free, unaligned character designed to be fed to demons was pretty funny.

* ''BlissStage'': Keenan Caine once got his Anchor pregnant ''just by kissing her.''

** Kai shot Vlad Ward, Khan of the Wolves, out of his 'Mech despite a twenty-ton weight disadvantage during the Great Refusal, the fight being horribly onesided in Kai's favor. He became Champion of Solaris, a world whose entire economy is based on 'Mech duels, in a single season, defeating most of the best warriors in the Inner Sphere. His canon record has only draws and one defeat. Only one of the draws was on a real battlefield, where a Clan warrior sacrificed himself to push both their 'Mechs off a cliff into water several hundred feet deep. Kai survived. The other draw was during a simulator duel against one of the other best pilots in the setting, Phelan Kell. The only time Kai has been confirmed to have ''actually lost'' was in a reduced-power weapons combat against Morgan Kell, who [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane has either supernatural powers or some kind of lostech device that prevents his 'Mech from being properly targeted by anyone]].

* In-universe example from ''TabletopGame/BattleTech''. Kai Allard-Liao is widely regarded to be one of the best pilots of his generation. In a simulated combat test on the home planet of Wolf's Dragoons, he managed to defeat five elite opponents, including his trainers, his own father, and his liege lord, in a trial where defeating three was a mark of exceptional skill. The test was an analogue to the Trial of Position of the Clans--three kills would have made him the equivalent of a company commander, four kills the equivalent of a major. Five kills effectively made him the equivalent of a front-line regimental colonel and was unheard-of in Inner Sphere or Clan space. When he was stranded behind enemy lines, the Jade Falcons who controlled the planet thought it only just and fair to send ''fifty'' PowerArmor wearing SuperSoldiers to apprehend him because of his reputation. That he manages to kill one in hand to hand combat is a feat in and of itself, given that his enemies were eight feet tall and five hundred pounds of muscle. After that, they actually start the bidding war to capture him ''in armor.'' Upon encountering the Falcons later in an EnemyMine situation, one of the Falcons, after hearing the details of the aforementioned test, murmurs something to the effect that three stars (seventy-five) of the SuperSoldiers in armor would be required for a fair fight against Kai. In all fairness, at that point in the narrative, Kai had over ''fifty'' kills to his credit just on the Jade Falcons alone, as the Falcons themselves point out.
