** A dramatic moment at the end of the campaign of ''VideoGame/HaloReach'' sees Noble Six's final moments from the perspective of his suit's helmet camera, which he had just dropped on the ground; as a company of Elites closes in, he manages to take down no less than 7 of them in an all-out brawl before he bites the dust.

* A MagicAIsMagicA example is the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' series. In the face of a horde of aliens that are both physically and technologically superior to anything Humanity has to offer, the Master Chief (and other [=SPARTAN-IIs=]) are the only humans that are physically strong, technologically augmented and technically skilled enough to take down thousands of 7-foot tall alien killing machines. The legendary status of the Spartans is such that the military refuses to officially acknowledge their deaths, instead listing them as Missing In Action.

* In the third installment in the HeartsOfIron series, naval combat is based around "effectiveness" percentages. These are affected by unit experience, weather conditions, supply shortages, commander skill, etc. For each naval unit that is added to a fleet, the "Disorganization Penalty" stacks higher, bringing down the effectiveness (and by extent ability in combat) of all the ships in the fleet. While the effect is negligible for small and only a minor problem for medium sized fleets, massive armadas (50+ units) may find themselves being absolutely massacred when up against only two Captial Ships and their escorts, as the Disorganization Penalty has been stacked so high that even the armada's battleships are seemingly worthless.

* Avoided in ''VideoGame/TheWitcher3WildHunt'' When the Wild Hunt goes up against the witchers of Kaer Morhen and [[spoiler: Yennefer, Cirilla and]](depending on your decisions)some all or none of the following: Triss Merigold, Kiera Mertz, Zoltan Chivay, Vernon Roche, Ves, Letho, Hjalmar an Craite, Vigi, Folan, and Ermion, all with financial backing from Sigmund dijkstra. They lose, pretty hard, [[spoiler: in fact they only survived thanks to Ciri cracking under the pressure of her imminent capture by the Wild Hunt after Vesemir's trope/HeroicSacrifice And they only survive ''that'' because an elven sage was there to stop Ciri from becoming a human black hole.]] Sure they fought them off ''barely'' But in the process they lost Kaer Morhen '''''and''''' one of their most knowledgeable and experienced people [[spoiler: Vesemir]] And the bad guys lost around 50 grunts out of the ''Hundreds'' they have. And most of the people who were on defense were either superhuman, magic, or ''both''.

* Discussed in ''VideoGame/{{Pirate101}} by El Toro while the player invades a ninja fortress. Also played straight game play with some fights when the player is greatly outnumbered enemies are much lower leveled while enemies that fight alone are strong enough and have enough tricks to wipe out the entire player's party.

* ''BadDudes Versus Dragon Ninja''. Armies of brightly dressed HighlyVisibleNinja rush at the one (or two) good guys in broad daylight then each one falls down (and vanishes) after being struck a single blow (in fact in the case of the chi punch several ninja can be killed by the same blow).
* Dragonest has the Priest class which is exceptional when dealing with multiple enemies due to the large area of his spells (some actually hit more times if there are more enemies, especially Inquisitors) but utterly horrible when faced in single combat.

* ''VideoGame/Overwatch'' has a ninja character named Genji that can be quite powerful when only one of them is on your team, but having 3 or more on your team will almost always be a guaranteed loss.

* In ''Comicbook/{{Spider-Man}}: The Game of TheMovie'', one level relies heavily on stealth, and if you are spotted or trip an alarm it brings out a couple Super Soldiers, giant robots that are extremely formidable opponents. Even one is a handful, and if you run into more than one, your only hope is to run and hide. A couple levels later you have to fight your way through dozens of Super Soldiers, which are notably easier to get past.
