Bullet Sponge

Any enemy that appears to require more firepower than would be considered realistic or reasonable to defeat. This is an allusion to how the enemy can absorb bullets much like a sponge absorbs water. For example, an enemy soldier in a first-person shooter that would be reasonably expected to be defeated with a couple of shots ends up requiring several full magazines of ammunition to defeat would be a bullet sponge.
