* In ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', the Slaughterhouse Nine are an S-level threat, each capable of being a meaningful antagonist for multiple chapters. After [[spoiler:they are cloned en-masse]], several of them can be killed in a sentence. This is somewhat justified in that [[spoiler: the past members of the Nine have already been killed once, so figuring out how to kill them again is much easier, and the original's memories and experience were replaced with whatever Bonesaw could make for them.]]
** Blowout's power relies on the amount of people aware of him and their reactions, including his enemies.


** During the episode "No Brakes," Team RWBY and Dr. Oobleck take down several large mech suits during the fight, despite it taking all of Team RWBY to take one down in an earlier episode. During the one-on-one fights in the same episode between Weiss, Blake, and Yang, two of the three girls are downed, and one is nearly killed.
*** Volume 3 revealed that the Volume 2 mech suits were ''prototypes'' and that the real ones would never fall that easily. Indeed, when Torchwick takes control of the Atlesian mechanized army, two of those suits give Weiss, Ren, Nora and Teams SSSN, FNKI, ARBN and CFVY hell with only Velvet's Power Copying weapon and Weiss being able to (barely) summon leading them to survive... only for an even stronger mech to show up and ''that'' is only stopped due to dumb luck on Ruby's part elsewhere.

*** ** Volume 3 revealed that the Volume 2 mech suits Paladins were ''prototypes'' and that the real ones would never fall that easily. Indeed, when When Torchwick takes uses a stolen ship to take control of the Atlesian mechanized army, just two of those suits Paladins give Weiss, Ren, Nora and Teams SSSN, FNKI, ARBN and CFVY hell with hell; they are saved only Velvet's Power Copying weapon through the use of Velvet and Weiss being able to (barely) summon leading them to survive... only for using their Semblances in a way that had not been previously seen. At that point, an even stronger mech to show up and ''that'' is bigger Paladin turns up. The only stopped due to dumb luck on Ruby's part elsewhere.
thing that saves them is that Ruby picked fight with Torchwick and so accidentally solves the Paladin threat in the process.


* In the "Yellow" trailer for ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', Yang effortlessly dispatches a dozen or so {{mooks}} without being touched, has to work for it fighting the Malachite sisters, and then receives her only serious blows when she faces off with the boss Junior.
** Seen in the trailers overall: in "Red", Ruby easily takes down a large pack of beowolves without problem. In "Black", Blake and Adam easily mow through the robot guards that outnumber them.

*** This is turned on its head in Volume 3, when it's revealed that those mech suits were ''prototypes'' and that the real ones would never fall that easily. Indeed, when Torchwick takes control of the Atlesian mechanized army, two of those suits give Weiss, Ren, Nora and Teams SSSN, FNKI, ARBN and CFVY hell with only Velvet's Power Copying weapon and Weiss being able to (barely) summon leading them to survive... only for an even stronger mech to show up and ''that'' is only stopped due to dumb luck on Ruby's part elsewhere.
** In Volume 4, Qrow reveals his semblance is "Misfortune" which causes bad things to happen to people around him, the worst part being it's an automatic semblance which he cannot control except to spike it's power high when he wants but can NEVER stop. This has led to his life of fighting alone as with only enemies to affect his semblance is immensely deadly, but with an ally close to him it could target, it changes the game entirely..as Ruby discovered nearly costing the pair of them their lives.
