* ''CrisisCore'' has the Flare attack that easily deals a few thousand damage even through a [=MBarrier=]. What makes it worse is that you will meet enemy encounters with multiple Flare-users before completing half the missions, so you most likely won't be able to interrupt them all. Time to build your HP+ 999% and max Spirit materia.

* Sephiroth's Supernova from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', which deals 9/10ths of the party's hit points in damage and can inflict confusion and mute. It also [[OverlyLongFightingAnimation takes a minute and a half to sit through]]. However, it can be noted that Supernova is a percentage based attack, so it cannot actually kill you... and it's kind of cool-looking, at least the first time he uses it.

** All of the Monster Arena {{Bonus Boss}}es have some frankly ridiculous attacks, but special note goes to Fenrir's "Fangs of Hell", which is a guaranteed OneHitKill against the target. [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard Even if the victim has armor with Deathproof on it.]] And since Fenrir's Agility is cranked up to high heavens, it is possible that Fenrir will use this move two or [[TotalPartyKill three]] times in a row.

* Ravus' tentacle attack. It can hit Noctis anywhere in the arena, can't be parried and is preceded by a very easy-to-miss tell. If it connects it's almost guaranteed to put Noctis into critical health, but making it worse is that it inflicts Stop, preventing you from healing or being rescued until it wears off. [[FromBadToWorse Adding insult to injury,]] Noctis will fall over after Stop wears off, and he has to get back to his feet before he can activate that Hi-Elixir you desperately selected. At any point during all this, Ravus can use any one of his other, equally devastating attacks and instantly kill you. [[LuckBasedMission All you can do is pray he targets one of your teammates instead until it's over.]]

** And in case Omega wasn't satisfied with Encircle, it can also use White Hole, an attack that does quite a bit of damage to one character and petrifies them.

** And in case Omega wasn't satisfied with Encircle, it can also use White Hole, an attack that does quite a bit of damage to one character and instantly kills ''and'' petrifies them.any target it hits, meaning you'll have to either Dualcast Raise and Esuna or waste two turns bringing them back.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' comes close to this, coming in second as far as Malboro terror goes only because of the ability to run away.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' comes close to this, coming in second as far as Malboro terror goes only because of this game's version doesn't always ambush the ability party, providing a window of opportunity to run away.away. Unless you've specifically loaded your party's junctions toward resisting Berserk and Confusion at a bare minimum, it's a chance you'll want to take, since like in FFX this game's Malboros almost always lead with Bad Breath and it's potent enough to leave you watching helplessly as your party kills themselves.
