* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'':
** Chapter 43 shows Sif preparing to face down a giant sea serpent. When she next appears, she claims she took down ''five'' of them, and looks unscathed.
** Peter Wisdom [[spoiler: aka Regulus Black]] has apparently destroyed several of Voldemort's horcruxes.
** When Doctor Strange first appears in ''Ghosts of the Past'', it's apparently right after fending off an attempted invasion by Dormammu. As in, his clothes are still smoking in places.

** The J-Team's fight against [[LivingShadow the Shadow Man]] is such a ForegoneConclusion that the story immediately cuts from them preparing to fight to him being [[SealedEvilInACan resealed]].

* In ''Fanfic/TheBridge'', a swarm of Destroyah babies overruns Ki Seong's restaurant and start eating and destroying everything, so she prepares for a fight. The next time we see her, she's somehow tamed them all and put them to work cooking and cleaning up the restaurant.

** While the heroes are dealing with [[FillerVillain Anton]] [[BigBadWannabe Mortimer]], Tohru's sutras screw up Jade's tracking spell, and the Shadow Hand spend most of the chapter stuck on some kind of farm filled with magic animals and fighting them and their farmer. We only see bits and pieces of this, but it's implied to be one of the toughest fight sequences in the story.

* ''FanFic/ZeldasHonor'' has a rather prominent example at the end of Act 2. The battle between Ganondorf/Twinrova and the [[spoiler: Talamir/Timner Eldritch Abomination]] builds up to be quite the epic showdown between three massively overpowered characters. Unfortunately, we cut away to the chase scene between [[spoiler: Link and Barrachas]]; only to cut back later after the battle is over and Ganondorf's boot crushing the last remnants of the [[spoiler: abomination]].

* Fight scenes ''Manga/ReTake'' mostly occur off-screen. This includes Shinji, having knowledge of the future, disables Unit-03 without killing the pilot, and is stated to have broken all of its limbs. In the story's climax, Shinji's fight with the Mass Production Evas, most notably after [[ItMakesSenseInContext Ghost Asuka finally decides to help him and they take the Lance of Longious]]. We get an OhCrap reaction from SELEE saying they're finished and the Unit-01 is going to kill their Evas and we get seen afterwards indicating that Shinji and Asuka took them down easily, but we don't get to see the fight.

* ''Fanfic/ACrownOfStars'': After the conquest of Buenos Aires, there were two {{Time Skip}}s to push the history forward, skipping to the arrival of the enemy fleet. An unfortunate effect of this was most of the campaign of liberation of South America (and thus a good humber of battles featuring Shinji and Asuka piloting a two-seater HumongousMecha, Touji and Kensuke -Kensuke!- riding their own giant robots, Misato wearing a PowerArmor and leading from the frontlines...) happened off-screen.

* There are a number of small ones in ''{{FanFic/Vapors}}'' because Naruto is the HeroOfAnotherStory and having his adventures even when he isn't with Aiko. But there's one that must have been awesome when, while Aiko leads the benin against Gaara, Jiraiya teams up with the Third Hokage to permanently kill Orochimaru.



* The season 3 finale for Fanfic/JakeEnglishsMysteriousTheaterOfScientificRomanceFromTheYear3000 says that the most awesome battle in the history of paradox space occurred. [[DoubleSubverted And then goes on to list all of the cool stuff we missed]], such as everyone turning into Power Rangers, Phelous jumping into a black hole, Equius punching the universe in half, the Suicide Squad fighting the Secret Six, and a cheesy montage.

[[AC: ''Lierature/HarryPotter'']]
* A quite odd, untitled fanfic written in Polish (sporked [[http://niezatapialna-armada.blogspot.com/2011/02/34.html here]]) does it spectacularly. In one scene, the good guys are sitting in a library, trying to find out how to defeat Voldemort. In the next sentence, the narrator suddenly states "Voldemort defeated!", hastily explains that he's been beaten in some unknown way and will definitely never rise again, then proceeds to the WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue.

* In ''Fanfic/TheLastSpartan'', when [[Franchise/MassEffect Tali]] is explaining the quarian Pilgrimage to [[{{Halo}} Master Chief]], she mentions a time when Kal'Reegar, himself on a pilgrimage at the time, returned to the fleet to give the ''Rayya's'' Captain a Brute [[DropTheHammer Gravity Hammer]] as a return gift. Tali described Reegar as being victim of multiple suit breaches and other injuries, but when Chief asks her exactly ''how'' he got it, Tali only says "[[BadassNormal It wasn't easy.]]"

* ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5433094/1/The_Doorstop The Doorstop]]'', a HateFic[=/=]{{Deconstruction}} of ''FanFic/TheOpenDoor'' has an especially notable one shortly after a major WhamEpisode when New!Chaos launches simultaneous commando raids against [[MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha the TSAB]], [[StarWars the New Republic]], and [[TengenToppaGurrenLagann the Spiral Nation]] that nearly beheads all three nations in one fell swoop. Five chapters of brutal fighting, multiple [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Crowning Moments Of Awesome]], and several character deaths later, Nanoha learns that an attack force similar in size to the one that ''her entire team'' barely managed to fight off [[ItMakesSenseInContext accidentally]] attacked St. Hilda Elementary School... and was single-handedly curbstomped by ''[[BadassAdorable Vivio]]'' in full Saint King mode. Naturally, this all happens completely off-screen.
