She has often found herself being used as a bodyguard for other title contenders. This was pretty much the go-to for establishing a new villain in Hulk Hogan's 80s and 90s runs. A villain would appear and beat the tar out of the Hulkster outside of a match. But naturally, once the official match to settle the score happens, it goes pretty much the way they always do , with Hulk mopping the floor with the guy. East Academy : Skull Knight seems to have been introduced solely for Sigmund to get his official badass license. Marcus has been subjected to this no less than three times, being curbstomped by Peter, Yikzhekel and Haine.
And Denero gets his ass handed to him by David in the latters first duel in the show. In combat sports such as boxing and Mixed Martial Arts , contenders on the rise are often matched up with "gatekeepers," who are reasonably tough veterans of the sport who will not be challenging for the title any time soon. Defeating a gatekeeper gives fighters experience and allows them to ascend the championship ladder without sacrificing the careers of fellow contenders.
In NCAA Football, the University of Michigan Wolverines, the team with the most wins in college football history, has fallen into this role in recent times. The Wolverines have lost almost every game against a top ranked opponent in the since a current record. This has increased with the hiring of Jim Harbaugh as head coach; a Michigan graduate and former quarterback who was brought in to bring the team back to its glory days and secure marquee wins.
Tabletop Games. Used regularly in Warhammer 40, fluff and books. This can naturally lead to problems when the development cycle leaves factions Out of Focus for years to accumulate a long string of defeats, with no victories to counteract them. Daemon Lord M'kar is a case that Depends on the Writer.
Sometimes he's a terrifying threat, or when written by the infamous Matt Ward he exists to show up and get pantsed by the latest new special character needing some badass cred. The most consistently Worfed thing in 40k has to be the Avatar of Khaine, the physical embodiment of the Eldar's god of war. To date the Avatar has been killed by two different Primarchs one of whom somehow strangled a giant animated statue of molten metal , a Greater Daemon of Slaanesh via possession , somehow , Marneus Calgar of the Ultramarines, the Blood Angels' Sanguinor, twelve bum-rushing Tyranid Carnifexes, the Blood Ravens four times over the Dawn of War games, the Legion of the Damned who brought down a roof on it, and Maugan Ra, an Eldar.
Materials can be Worfs too: Adamantium is only ever mentioned in terms of how a given weapon can effortlessly slice through it, while Terminator armor has a similar tendency to get ripped apart to show how dangerous a threat is. An odd example is Ollanius Pius, who dates back to the oldest fluff. This mere human Guardsman intervened during the God-Emperor 's duel against his fallen son Horus , and though slain effortlessly, Pius' death showed the Emperor that his son was past redemption, inspiring him to defeat Horus once and for all.
Later retcons tried to be true to this trope, and turned Pius from a human to a Space Marine Terminator to a Custodian Guard , but this is arguably missing the point: Pius' death was meaningful because he was no threat to Horus, yet he acted anyway and was killed for it. As of the Horus Heresy books, Pius is back to being a Guardsman, albeit an immortal warrior and peer of the Emperor instead of a normal human, perhaps as a weird compromise.
The hilarious amounts of worfs Kaldor Draigo plowed through is what contributed to his Mary Sue status, as his codex entry in 5th edition had him all but dance on Tzeentch's ass on how badly he stomped Daemon Champions including carving a name into a Daemon Primarch's chest.
The books later expanded on all of this providing context, while the later 7th edition codex omitted them completely. Probably the ultimate worf is the Imperial Guard. Yet against just about everybody else in this setting, these remarkable weapons are derided as "t-shirts and flashlights" , and Guardsmen die in droves. It really does hammer home the fact that if any of the armies of attacked Earth in real life, all the combined might of every nation's military wouldn't last long at all.
Emperor-class Battle Titans are generally seen as some of the most powerful things the Imperium has, short of the God-Emperor in his prime. It's a war machine the size of the Statue of Liberty , it bristles with weapons, and its rules are essentially an exercise in excess because it'd be easier to make a Titan costume and stand on the table than actually make a scale miniature. Naturally, pretty much every time an Emperor Battle Titan has shown up, it's gotten destroyed. In the Ravenloft product line, a remarkable number of adventures require the player characters to rescue Dr.
Rudolph van Richten when he's kidnapped, mind-controlled, committed to an asylum, or otherwise incapacitated Probably a side effect of his being the most prominent non-evil NPC in the game setting, whom writers can't resist using in their scenarios, yet must hamstring to ensure he won't outshine the players' characters. This actually gets explained in Van Richten's guide to the Vistani. He's under a Vistani curse that compels him to go into dangerous situations and fail horribly in ways that get all his friends killed, but allows him to survive.
The eponymous Champions were shown lying beaten alarmingly often for the world's premier heroes in the game's 4th edition, in the interests of making whichever villain they were trying to promote look nastier. Nowadays the art usually shows the heroes putting up a fight rather than just having lost one.
Any time they appear on a card, it's them getting their asses kicked or about to get their asses kicked. This may be something of a backlash against their former Game-Breaker status. The Rahu Auspice are the designated tough guy in any pack. What inborn ability do they gain for being Rahu? The ability to tell at a glance whether or not they could take a given opponent in a fight. Antediluvians are one step from omnipotence , all of them have at least one level discipline which allows them to do anything connected to it.
Several were close to wiping out the whole population of Earth. Most lack any semblance of morality. Yet all of them become frightened from even a mention of their progenitor. In Magic: The Gathering , a variation occurs, because of the metagame : If a card turns out to be a Game-Breaker , there will be instant answers to it next set, though as per the rules there are always answers to everything.
Storyline-wise, Lin Sivvi was a Game-Breaker in the Masques block; she died at the very beginning of the Invasion block. How did Khans of Tarkir establish that Surrak Dragonclaw was badass? Have him punch out a bear. On a Common card, no less, so it was likely that anyone who bought more than boosters worth of KTK would see it. Then Sarkhan altered the timeline. In the new one, the people who had been the Khans were all over the place: Anafenza was a ghost, Zurgo little more than a living musical doorbell, Sidisi a zombie albeit one that still had ambitions , Narset had actually done pretty well and awoken as a planeswalker, and Surrak The Gatewatch had a year-long introduction in which they took out two of the Eldrazi Titans and then bound the third admittedly with its help , in order to 1 resolve that particular plot arc, which had been hovering in stasis for half a decade, and 2 establish how much the faces of the five colours of mana could achieve if they worked together; while all the characters were individually known qualities and most had been the viewpoint character for a block or two, this was the first time they had worked as a concerted unit rather than bounced around having their own adventures.
Then they had the trope turned back on them by Nicol Bolas, a major contender for Magic's Big Bad and a character who hadn't appeared on a card in eight years, most of which had seen the player base expand and sales go up; to establish his credibility with the people who hadn't been playing in and remind people who had that he was a ridiculous powerhouse, Bolas took down the entire Gatewatch, making sure to hit each one in their own specialty for bonus showoff points. Exalted : the Bull of the North is recommended for this in Compass: North, while Return of the Scarlet Empress sets up as much of the Fivescore Fellowship as the Storyteller wishes to take out , and especially Chejop Kejak.
If you look, you can see the Tarrasque cowering on the background. In BattleTech , there was a time period during the early Clan invasion until just before the Fed-Com Civil War where new 'Mechs such as the Clan Omnis or advanced-tech Inner Sphere assault 'Mechs had to quickly make names for themselves. In these cases they were often shown destroying an Atlas , otherwise revered as one of the biggest, toughest, and most dangerous Battlemechs around. This is justified because while the Atlas is a famous mech with a fearsome reputation in-universe, it's not actually that great of a mech and therefore it's pretty easy to build something that's more powerful than it is or at least designed to take advantage of the Atlas's weaknesses , especially if the new mech has more advanced weaponry and equipment.
The original example of this is in the write up for the Grand Titan , a mech of equal size to the Atlas that was described as having in its debut in the Solaris VII gladiator games as having delivered a Curb-Stomp Battle to one.
- Portugal in European and World History;
- Making Money Online: The Starting Line;
- Twilight at Waterside?
- Shtetl Days: A Tor.Com Original.
This was almost certainly the result of a rigged match, as the Grand Titan is actually a very inefficient machine that would have serious trouble against an Atlas at any range. Visual Novels. His Master makes no secret of his true identity as Hercules. He's called The Strongest Servant , he's top-tier in all the main factors that determine a Servant's strength age, fame, and mana stores of his Master , with his Class enhancing his already insane power, attacks below 'A'-rank barely scratch him, and he revives 12 times before he can be Killed Off for Real.
You'd think he's a shoe-in to win the Grail War. However, he is always eliminated half-way through any scenario, all to show how impressive some other character is or has become. Taking from a modified text above To be completely fair, in the Fate arc, he took out Archer and nearly killed Shirou and Rin and he went out in a blaze of glory in Unlimited Blade Works tanking Gate of Babylon after Gate of Babylon to shield Ilya cementing how badass he actually is. Hercules is actually a strange case of Worf Had the Flu.
The Berserker class is generally regarded as a trap option, as while it greatly strengthens servants summoned under it, it ALSO tends to remove their capacity for critical thought, and disables most of their strongest abilities. The only real exceptions to this rule are people like Beowulf, who aren't truly insane but are "berserkers" in combat, or people like Kiyohime, SF! Jack, and Spartacus, who are inherently insane and must be summoned under Berserker to show their strength. Although being regarded as one of the strongest Servant, she is killed off-screen with "Just one blow" by Caster's Master Kuzuki Souchirou, who is a mere human with his strength enhanced by Servant Caster's magic.
A similar fate will almost fall upon Servant Saber, regarded as the strongest servant. The true master of this trope is Lancer ; he is established early on as being a badass while fighting Archer and almost kills Shiro and delivers a badass one-liner immediately following, but it's all downhill from there. In the Fate route he is killed by Gilagmesh to establish how powerful he is. In Unlimited Blade Works he is forced to kill himself by Kotomine ordering him to do so with a Command Spell , though he does have his chance to shine immediately following this.
Finally in Heaven's Feel he dies to establish True Assasin's cred. If Dark Sakura weren't there, True Assassin would've been gone as fast as he arrived. Admittedly he wasn't really trying i. Then EATS him, taking his power. Downplayed in that he does end up beating them in the end, but it is still a very close victory in both cases. Web Comics. Probably from how he almost always uses one spell , that while powerful, can only be used once a day.
In Grrl Power , Concretia makes an entrance , complete with stats, an immediately blows away Mr. Amorphous and Achillies to show how bad arsed she is. Then in the very next page she is taken down by Math to show just how bad-arsed normal he is. Getting his butt kicked by the monstrous CEO form of clone! Aylee was a major plot point because in the past, Aylee was not strong enough to win a fight with him. Their first battle ended in a draw as they both collapsed from exhaustion, although Bun-Bun managed to slice off Aylee's arm before the end it regenerated.
The fact that "Aylee" was a clone whose evolution was controlled to make her stronger helps. Oasis sometimes falls victim to this, as while she is a deadly assassin, she also loses against Clone! Aylee, and previously lost to demon-possessed Gwynn. Finally, in June Bun-Bun and Oasis faced each other in a full-out fight. Who would be the Worf this time? It was likely decided by the fact that the storyline at the time was all about Oasis and it would have been cut anticlimactically short if she'd been the one to lose. Bun-bun had taken the advantage when it was solely about conventional means of fighting, but when Oasis' pyrokinetic powers are shown, the fight goes the other way.
In one of the prequel books of The Order of the Stick , the Order is about to face a guard monster, only to have it hit Roy with a roll of 2. Upon realizing that it can nail the party member with the probable highest Armor Class with such a low roll, they flee. Explicitly lampshaded in this strip. Slight alteration by Redcloak, when he takes out a tribe's number 2, in front of the number one, and then turns to the chief and says something like, "Oh, he was your chief, wasn't he? The real chief immediately surrenders to avoid death. Sara and the other Time Monks from Errant Story.
The author directly invokes the trope in a commentary comic. Sara's jobbing seems restricted to magic-using enemies. For example, she gets caught by an unexpected bind spell, but once Meji frees her she takes down three elves in a handful of seconds. Homestuck : Equius , the strongest of the trolls, he punched the head off an ogre with his bare hands! This is arguably both a straight play and a subversion, since Word of God says he could have easily broken the bowstring with his STRONG neck, but didn't because Gamzee is a highblood and therefore had the right to kill him , at least in Equius' mind.
Hegemonic Brute. Biggest, toughest, meanest of the Derse agents, save Jack once he gets the ring. His Midnight Crew counterpart Hearts Boxcars devours the heads of his enemies whole and rips huge safes out of brick walls. Yet in the first iteration of the kids' game he's held in a headlock by Dad Egbert and later slain off-screen by the relatively harmless-looking and meek Parcel Mistress using the sword his boss gave her, no less , and in the post- Scratch session decapitated in one sweep by Dirk Strider with only three panels worth of screen time.
Dirk himself becomes a Worf later on when he gets badly beaten by the ascended Caliborn, and has to be bailed out by Jake's Hope bomb. Jack Noir. He was the main antagonist of the first five arcs, the reason why both the kids and the trolls' sessions turned to shit, and was shown to be able to take on people with god-like power as well as destroy two universes. He gets in a fight with John while in a dream bubble.
John manages to beat him back for most of the fight and humiliate him with a silly hat, before PM comes back to chase him across the universe. Jade Harley is the most powerful God-Tier kid in the series. She has abilities derived from the Green Sun, the power source of the First Guardians, as well as God-Tier, and is capable of effortlessly shrinking planets down to small size. As it turns out, not even the Green Sun can match the fully unleashed power of hope from Jake English of all people.
Generally, the first action of a villain during the Yearly Bob and George Villain Kills Everyone storyline is to take out Protoman, who could be loosely described as a sort of robot Batman. More often than not, the nigh-indestructible "Demon"-class robots, Nate and Chadling, would also be reduced to their goo state at this stage, meaning that unless they merged with another character, they wouldn't be contributing too much. Elliot from El Goonish Shive suffers from this, even though the series isn't focused on combat. He built a reputation as a Bully Hunter and befriended two of the main characters through saving them from bullies and defeated the first antagonist of the strip.
Elliot also suffered from this in Nanase's introduction, where her badass cred is established as being the only person able to defeat Elliot in combat. Nanase herself also suffer the Worf Effect indirectly. Her Guardian Angel spell made her able to pretty much curb-stomp Abraham, but then when she assumes it against Not-Tengu Ellen is able to tell she's lying when she said she could take it on singlehandedly.

In addition, Magus schemes to keep Nanase away from his plan, and when one character presumes this is because she'd be able to defeat him, he replies that it's actually because he's far more powerful and doesn't want to hurt her. Elliot further suffered from this effect even after his Next Tier Power-Up through his Cheerleadra spell which turns him into a busty Flying Brick. He is almost killed by a dragon and spends more or less his time "fighting" a griffin just flying away from it.
