Some stories have a hero and villain who are, roughly, just as powerful as the other. But others have a hero that is SERIOUSLY outclassed by the villain. More often than not, the hero is an Action Survivor. Not to be confused with Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?, which is the point where the hero beats the villain. An example would be Chris Redfield vs. Albert Wesker in Resident Evil.
