* In ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' special mention goes to Yoda who gets into a contest with Asajj Ventress over whether a certain planet will join the Republic or the Separatists. If he can escape Asajj's best troops, the plane will go with the Republic. Yoda barely breaks a sweat. Asajj ([[HeroKiller who's personally killed many Jedi]]) then tries to attack Yoda in a rage, and he casually extinguishes her dual blades using the force then force-pulls them from her grasp.
--->'''King Katuunko''': You were right, Count Dooku. One Jedi is not worth a hundred battle droids... more like a thousand.

** Each of the Mane 6 qualify in their own right; together, they were able to take on a good chunk of the changeling army after it invaded an entire city:
*** Twilight is personal protégé to Princess Celestia, perhaps the most well-read unicorn in history, and the Element of Magic. And then she [[ItWasHisSled becomes an alicorn princess.]] She's one of the most powerful characters in the series.
*** Applejack is only an Earth Pony, and not even the strongest one in the series (Maud Pie), but she is tough enough and stubborn enough to defeat hordes of enemies.
*** Rarity is a less powerful unicorn than Twilight, but she's shown martial arts proficiency, and is nearly as fierce as AJ in combat.
*** Fluttershy is normally kind and quiet. But don't [[BewareTheQuietOnes make her angry.]] She's stronger and faster than she looks, and is the group's resident [[TheBeastmaster Beast Master.]] She also has a special ability called ''The Stare'' which basically forces whoever she's using it on to do what she wants.
*** Rainbow Dash is pretty much the definition of AwesomeEgo, but she has the skills to back it up. She's the fastest flyer in Equestria, is the only pony in ''history'' to preform a Sonic Rainboom, and also has a black belt in karate. She's strong enough to apparently lift- and fly around with- a boulder several times her size, and she can smash through a pillar of rock with little problem. As a Pegasus, she can also [[WeatherManipulation manipulate clouds and weather]] to her advantage. She's almost as stubborn as Applejack and is usually the first to resort to violence.
*** Pinkie Pie is pony ComicBook/{{Deadpool}}. Enough said.

* Iroh of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. They say so. In as many words. ''Really.'' And consider that this was [[spoiler:during the Eclipse, [[BroughtDownToBadass when he would have had no ability to firebend.]]]]
** There's [[BreathWeapon a reason]] he's called [[RedBaron the Dragon of the West]].
** Any fully realized Avatar using their SuperMode is effectively the [[PhysicalGod single most powerful combatant in the entire world.]]
** Can't forget Bumi either, who [[spoiler:liberated the city of Omashu ''by himself'']]. He didn't run from the army. ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome The army ran from him.]]''
*** While he was locked inside of what was essentially a metal coffin. What did he use to escape, you ask? His face. Really.
** According to the WordOfGod, the reason Piandao is so revered as a sword master is because of what happened when he decided he was tired of the military and became a recluse. The military sent a hundred soldiers. Piandao sent them all back.
*** [[BadassNormal And he can't firebend, either.]]

*** [[spoiler:The fact that at least two of their own were supercharged as well doesn't hurt.]]
* In the sequel series, WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra, there is Lin Beifong. Chief of police, with the ability to Metalbend and Earthbend, her skills become increasingly impressive just by a few episodes. In Episode 7 she's seen taking out a MiniMecha all on her own (while everyone else with her held their own but never really took down any of the Mecha), and in Episode 9 she frees her officers from an Equalist base, doing practically all of the work.
** Any member of the Red Lotus, and all 4 combined are basically unstoppable.
** Tenzin is shown to be such, especially in Season 3 when [[spoiler: he easily fends off [[BigBad Zaheer]], and it takes the combined effort of all 4 members of the Red Lotus to take him down.]]
** In season 4, Kuvira is shown to be one when she [[CurbStompBattle curb stomps]] a group of about twenty bandits single-handedly.

** Not only that, but the last few Kill Bots actually took a step backwards trying to running away. [[TheHero Jack]] said "No, there is no escape." and [[CrowningMomentofAwesome ruined them]].
** Once, he managed to beat a moderately large army of robots with literally no effort at all.

I'm giving you an opportunity to peacefully lay down your weapons, so that you may be reprogrammed to serve a better purpose than spreading the mindless violence and chaos which you have inflicted upon the galaxy."

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** [[SorcerousOverlord King Sombra]] was powerful enough to conquer the whole [[CosmicKeystone Crystal Empire]] by himself, pose a threat to [[PhysicalGod Princesses Celestia and Luna]] combined, and even curse the entire place to vanish through space and time. And in the present, he becomes a {{Kaiju}}[=-sized=] LivingShadow that's basically a WorldWreckingWave, and it ultimately takes almost every major protagonist, everyone in said Empire, and the [[AmplifierArtifact Crystal Heart]] to put him down for good.
*** In one of the Season 5 finale's {{Bad Future}}s, however, he uses an actual army to conquer the rest of Equestria. Albeit only out of pragmatism instead of any weakness, though, as he's easily able to defend himself from any Royal Guards that attempt to attack him directly.
