* Happens occasionally in ''VideoGame/{{Dwarf Fortress}}'', especially against the [[SealedEvilInACan HFS]]. Given that the Dwarves are one-tenth {{Badass}} and nine-tenths [[TooDumbToLive obsessive-compulsive alcoholic lemmings]], these occasions tend to end [[BlackComedy hilariously]].

***Actually, that entire battle might qualify. Sans is [[SNKBoss trying to stall you for as long as possible:]] he knows full well that if he [[VideoGameLives kills you, you'll just respawn]] through [[HeroicWillpower Determ]][[VillainousValor ination]], but [[HeroAntagonist he's not gonna let that stop him from fighting to the death in the hopes you just give up.]] Maybe do something [[PacifistRun a little more peaceful.]]
-->Sans: *that expression on your face... [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall that's the face of somebody who's already died once.]] [[TranquilFury guess that just means i'm really good at my job.]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', several bosses have a clear intention of not letting you pass them:
** Toriel blocks your way and doesn't want you out of the Ruins, since all the previous children she let out ended up dead.
** Mad Dummy blames you for doing-whatever-you-did with his cousin and starts to fight you. When he's all out of attacks, he just plans to hold his turn forever so that you can't progress.

* Somewhat parodied in ''AlphaCentauri''. Richard Baxton held off four waves of [[MindRape mind]] [[FaceFullOfAlienWingWong worms]] on his own with a single recon rover, saving a colony. The parody is that his story rights are purchased, then altered and repackaged as "Recon Rover Rick" so that it can be sold as an entertainment franchise, [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath downplaying the horror of his demise.]]

** In the sequel, most of your team for the Suicide Mission stays to hold off a horde of Collectors, allowing you and two others to destroy the Collector Base and [[spoiler: The Human Reaper.]] Depending on who is left in that team and who is loyal, none, some, or all of them will get back to the ship and survive. For extra drama/comedy try leaving a single heavy to hold the line.

* Exact quote from Aege, the Earth of Foundation, from ''[[SoulSeries Soul Calibur III]]'', the CuteBruiser [[TheJuggernaut Juggernaut]] [[TheDitz Ditz]] with a unique trait that makes her unable to be thrown, knocked down, or stunned. She is the penultimate opponent of Chronicle 11, and cannot be avoided.
