* ''Film/TheMagnificentSeven2016'' has Red Harvest vs. Denali. Denali is set up as Bogue's [[TheDragon dragon]] and Red Harvest's EvilCounterpart, Red Harvest intervenes with Denali coming after Emma, and you think you're going to get a long battle of the two BadassNative warriors going at it. Nope. Denali gets all of two good moves in before Red Harvest pokes him full of holes, snaps off a PreMortemOneLiner, and kicks him down a balcony to his doom. The entire thing lasts maybe sixty seconds, if that.

* ''Film/TheLastStarfighter'' has these all over the place. Alex almost gets curb-stomped by the first assassin to show up at his home (until Centauri shows up and rescues him), convincing him to go back and fight, until he finds out the Rylos got so thoroughly curb-stomped in his absence that he, Grig, and their prototype Gunstar are the ''only defense left for the entire Star League.'' Only after he curb-stomps a few enemy spy ships does he realize that he really IS good at this, and manages to curb-stomp the ''entire Ko-Dan armada (including command ship) in about two passes''.

* The ''Indominus Rex'' from ''Film/JurassicWorld'' brutally beats down anything that tries to oppose it, be it [[RedShirtArmy ACU troopers]], [[EliteMooks InGen contractors]], an ''Ankylosaurus'', a herd of sauropods, or Owen's raptors. [[spoiler: It takes the combined might of a ''T. Rex'', the surviving raptor, and a [[SeaMonster mosasaurs]] to finally take her down]].

* In ''Film/PacificRim'', Striker Eureka's battle with Mutavore. The {{Kaiju}} never landed a single hit and Striker finishes her off with missles in less than a minute. Though according to the novelization, Mutavore utterly thrashed two Jaegers on her way to Sydney. This was to highlight how powerful Striker Eureka was.

** The first battle counts as well. The Romans were able to route most of barbarians before the lines even met with barrage of flaming projectiles. We only see a handful of Romans perish (mostly to a single big guy with a giant axe), while any Germans that fought were ripped to shreds.

** In ''Film/TheNextKarateKid,'' he does the same to Dugan, as does his new pupil to the DirtyCop who made her life a nightmare.

** Wu Chow, the other half of the BigBadDuumvirate, also completely dominates Chon earlier in the climax, only losing due to Lin's CombatPragmatism.

* Film/BackToTheFuturePartIII: Marty vs. Buford. The only punch Buford lands on Marty after he gets up from FakingTheDead ends in Buford clutching his knuckles due to Marty's impromptu bulletproof vest. [[PintsizedPowerhouse Marty]], on the other hand, pummels him silly.

* Discussed in ''Film/StarTrekIIITheSearchForSpock''. The Klingons are utterly gobsmacked that the ''Enterprise'' hasn't blown them out of the sky as they outgun them ten to one. Turns out when you hit a jury-rigged badly damaged starship ''just'' right, they lose all steam.
