Okay, so then Bubba the mage arrives.  He's got the powerful spell of
reflection cast upon him (think of Vampire Hunter D).  David fires his
slingshot, Buffy swings her mighty blade of irresistable cutting, and
Boffo fires his bow of guaranteed death and all three of them fall over
dead as doornails.

Or one of my favorites, divine intervention:

Buffy swings her mighty blade of irresistable cutting and Biffy's throat!

Suddenly, there is a white flash, and the huge figure of Hern, the god of
peace, stands before you.

Hern catches Buffy's sword easily in one hand and disarms her.

Hern says, 'Biffy is a trusted follower of mine.  Any offense to her is
an offense to me.'

Hern breaks the mighty blade of irresistable cutting into several pieces.

There is a bright flash of light, and suddenly Hern is gone.
