** In a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwcQY-d0I_g Flash vs. Quicksilver]] video, Flash and Quick seem to be running and fighting at the same speed. Finally, Flash gets pissed ''and circumnavigates the globe in a few seconds'' to lay the final blow. An episode of ''WebVideo/DeathBattle'' showed the same thing, where the two were fighting evenly before the Flash decides to stop holding back, pulls Quicksilver into the Speed Force and pummels him senseless.

* Repeatedly invoked by multiple superheroes when they face a large gang of {{Mooks}}. Comicbook/{{Spider-Man}}, Franchise/{{Batman}}, ComicBook/CaptainAmerica and ThePunisher have all been surrounded by assorted groups of street thugs, ninjas, terrorists, convicts, etc., and almost always come out on top. Another variation on this trope was used in an early Spider-Man comic where three police officers burst in to help Spider-Man against a large gang of thugs. The cops are almost as effective against the overwhelming number of hoods as Spider-Man himself.

*** Speaking of Wolverine, the Hand brutally averted this one once by ambushing him with enough ninja to cripple his movement and leave him defenseless, allowing the Gorgon to chop his head off. He gets better, then plays the trope straight for six issues of glorious payback that practically wiped the ninja clan out.

* Played with in a recent ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'' comic where Kingpin faces the heroes with an army of ninjas (more ninjas then usual, according to one kid). During the fight, Molly (a superstrong girl who was very upset about punching Punisher, who had no powers to protect him, and had sworn off fighting anyone without powers) asks if ninjas had powers so she could fight them. She is given the answer, that, because they were ninjas, they counted as double, the implication being that heroes in the Marvel universe cut loose when fighting ninjas.

* On the subject of Doomsday, this trope tends to work in his favor as well, especially with those who uses him right - he's trashed two iterations of the Franchise/{{Justice League|of America}}, an iteration of the SuicideSquad and, in his early days, mowed through an army of Green Lanterns. He's practically ground to a halt when Superman steps in.

* In full effect on James Robinsons' ''[[ComicBook/NewKrypton World of New Krypton]]'' arc in {{Superman}}. One Kryptonian? One of the most powerful characters in the DCU. 80,000 Kryptonians? So much canon fodder.

Added DiffLines:

* On full display in ''ComicBook/{{Revival}}'' during the finale. A sword-wielding ninja attacks a group of US military with assault rifles. The ninja cuts them down easily until challenged by their commanding officer to single combat, which grinds to a stalemate.

* Zig-Zagged in ''ComicBook/JusticeLeagueMightyMorphinPowerRangers'' as the Rangers easily overpower Batman, but the fight is ground to a halt when the Flash enters and disarms the team.

* One ''Comicbook/TheFlash'' storyline had a Speed Force enhanced bunch of Ninja going up against various Flashes and other speedsters. They realized almost too late that the more ninja they took out of the action, the faster the others were getting...

* ''GIJoe'' often uses this trope, especially when dealing with the feuds between various Ninja-clans associated with either the team or the Cobra. Good example from America's Elite #26, where Snake-Eyes and Scarlett battle several ''dozens of mook-ninja's'' with great success. When nasty bad guy Firefly tries to escape, Scarlett tells Snake-Eyes to "Go, I'll take care of these losers", even though there are still at least a dozen left. Of course, the battle between Snake-Eyes and Firefly is epic in every regard. During the original Marvel run, issue #91, when Larry Hama was still writing the script, there was a slightly more plausible version, where Snake-Eyes, Scarlett, Jinx and Timber face-off about twenty Red Ninja's. First sixteen go down easily, whereas the last four manage to cause grievous wounds to both Scarlett and Jinx and even cut up Snakes a bit, before going down.

* Some supervillains have discovered, to their misfortune, that this cuts both ways. Juggernaut vs an entire team of Comicbook/{{X-Men}}? A city-wrecking battle in which the individual X-Men are injured, trains are derailed and buildings fall down. Juggernaut '''and''' Black Tom vs Cyclops? Cyclops runs rings around them while his internal monologue digresses about military history. Total property damage: One exploding pickup truck.

* The [[BatFamilyCrossover X-books X-over]] "Second Coming" was made of this trope and BadassDecay. One Nimrod class sentinel nearly wipes out the combined X-men and Hellfire Club. [[spoiler: An army of them is nearly cannon fodder.]] Not to mention a combined force of [[spoiler: Bastion, Stephen Lang, Bolivar Trask, William Stryker, Graydon Creed and Cameron Hodge]] getting taken out.
