There you are — a bona fide adventure hero, pure of heart and large of brawn — finally facing off with your arch nemesis. The stakes are high: your life, your one true love, even the world… but for some reason, you’re not really breaking a sweat. And why is that?

Most action and adventure movies will pit the central hero with a worthy adversaries. Ranking among these are the likes of Lex Luthor, Hans Gruber, the Joker. But sometimes, the hero faces off against someone who is… not exactly his or her match.
