The same way you can miss hitting a sleeping pokémon. With style.

Speaking of pokemon I'm in a PvP heavy game of PTU and in my first fight my opponent could get a single decent roll the whole fight with nearly every attack missing or doing so little damage it hardly mattered.

Go get swift, faint attack or some other no miss move. From what I've played of PTU if you are having trouble hitting stuff due to bad die rolls a little damage is better than none.

There's always a chance that fate will just make things go horribly wrong for you.

I suspect that Luffy would easily overpower Krieg in terms of raw strength.

The fun part is seeing Luke get caught off guard. Stunned for a turn isn't really that big a deal to Luffy.

Storytime! Tell a story about a particularly hilarious miss. Mine happened just last week. I was throwing another character at a wall so she could try and put a hole in it with a melee attack, but I rolled a critical fail. The GM ruled that I had thrown her straight up, and let me roll to dodge. Another critical fail. I missed a freaking wall and injured MYSELF.

I was playing a gunslinger in Pathfinder (pistols, not rifles). Anyway, the party had broke into a mansion to retrieve an artifact and the whole thing quickly turned into something out of Metal Gear Solid, up to and including the rogue hiding in plain site using a wooden box. Just as we had located the item we ended up tripping some sort of magical anti-theft spell. With enemies about to come through the door and no way out other than combat we took up positions. I positioned myself on one side of the door and readied an action to shoot the first enemy through the door. Guy kicks down the door and I open fire not one foot away from him, miss him and accidentally kill the rogue.

You... literally failed to hit the broad side of a wall?
Mine was just last night, in fact. While crossing a only-slightly-rickety rope bridge across a chasm in a practice dungeon, we were stopped by a man with a rapier, as well as three giant spiders. My hilariously poorly rolled farmer (5e Monk, but with no stat above 10 I didn't much care what class he was), after pissing him off by miraculously shooting the biggest spider's silk line and dropping it into the chasm, suffered from acute rapier-in-the-gut, escaping from a Nat20 with a hit point left only because the NPC rolled awfully for damage. My turn rolled around again: I couldn't go forward, the NPC was there and I doubted I could rush past him with just 1HP; I couldn't go backwards, other party members were in the way. I was too close to do an awesome flying side kick, and didn't want to waste time finding out how disarming works in 5e. So I did the first thing that made sense, and rolled to kick him in the crotch.
My staff would have done more damage, but I expected he could take 1d8+0 damage easily (seriously, I don't think I've ever rolled a stat spread like 10, 10, 10, 9, 8, 8 before) and decided to hope for a benevolent DM ruling on debilitation from the pain.
Roll: Natural 1, for the third time that session. (Also 3 20s. My D&D dice are odd.) I kicked myself in the crotch for a single point of damage, and fell unconscious at precisely zero HP, remaining on the ground until after the encounter. And the looting. And dressing me in the unconscious rapier wielder's clothes. Then I got carried by the overweight Dragonborn wizard until our employer's healer patched me up, since the warlock had already guilt-tripped the druid into wasting the party's only healing spell of the day.

Not sure if it counts, as this is the story of many misses, but here we go:
While exploring an evil tower, my party and I came across a succubus and her brood of tieflings. After some taunting, the battle commenced. At first things where going well, but it had gotten late and some things happened, so we called it for the week.

When we got back together, we spent the whole session on this single fight as we had a close to an 80% miss rate. Seriously, my paladin had buffed herself as high as she could, and had cast smite evil on the demon, while the ranger was grappling the foe to give me an additional +5 to hit, and I missed three times in a row. The DM even broke down and told me that if i could just roll anything above an 7, it would hit. We pushed everyone's limits and played extra late before we FINALLY felled the last foe, and half the party was down for the count in what was supposed to be a throw away encounter.

When we got back next session, the DM announced that that battle would forever be known as the the stormtrooper battle, as we had missed many shots with such consistency.

"Misses"

Ironclaw again!

The party had just found a bunch of guys making counterfeit money in a little cave hidden under a bar, and some of the guys there were acting a bit... odd.

So, round one, I use a gift I'd picked up somehow that let me punch someone without punching them in such a way that it confuses the guy I punched/not punched. Concealing the Intent, I think it was called.

Anyway, I punch the dude, then he's confused. Everyone near him (about half the party) proceeded to miss him the entire encounter while the rest of the enemies drop like flies.

This was a mook, not some big bad evil guy. Eventually the GM decided to just have his head explode because he was still so thoroughly confused.

It was revealed later, with the help of a captured mook and some master class purple & green wizard at the local ye olde mages guild that they had been mind controlled. So at least the head explosion made some sort of sense.

I forgot to mention that the way said wizard found out that the minions had had their minds tampered with was by setting off some kind of mental bomb while trying to read his mind. Said bomb killed the mook and permanently lowered the wizard's intelligence.
