* ''Film/LastOfTheMohicans'': Magua, who throughout the film has shown himself to be a total BadAss by killing pretty much ''everyone he wants to kill'', squares off with Uncas (himself a pretty fair badass) for the fate of a pretty girl and kills the poor boy with ease. Then Uncas's [[BadassGrandpa elderly father]] rushes forward for some payback, and takes Magua apart in seconds.

* ''Film/TronLegacy'': [[TheDragon Rinzler]] effortlessly lays a smackdown on of [[ActionSurvivor Sam]] in the most [[{{Badass}} showboating]] way possible when they first meet ([[OneLiner "why do I feel like I just got dunked on?"]]).

* An example occurs in the ''Film/{{Hitman}}'' movie. Even ends with a very literal and abrupt curb stomp by [[{{Badass}} 47]]. Most others in that movie are curb stomp battles as well, but not so literal.

** ''Film/RogueOne'' has a scene with about 8-10 Rebel grunts are locked in a room and confronted by Darth Vader. It's less appropriate to call it a battle and more to call it a NightmareFuel-inducing [[MookHorrorShow slaughter]].

* As a deliberate parody of action movies, the titular character in ''YouDontMessWithTheZohan'' is a literal OneManArmy to the point that the Israeli counter-terrorist unit constantly tricks him into taking out terrorists all on his own ''without even giving him a gun''. At the start of the movie, Zohan is shown to be eliminating an entire terrorist cell by himself.

* ''Film/XMen'':
** Wolverine and Sabertooth fight three times during ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'', with Sabertooth getting the upper hand the first time, the second ends indecisively, while in the third, Wolverine beats ten shades of sunshine out of Sabertooth in around ten seconds.

** ''Film/XMenApocalypse'':
*** Apocalypse in general against anyone who goes up against him, [[spoiler:except for Jean]]; the one who comes the closest to get good hits in is Quicksilver, and [[spoiler:he's ultimately dispatched]]. Professor X is at a ''tremendous'' disadvantage when he confronts Apocalypse on the astral plane because the latter can [[{{Sizeshifter}} sizeshift]] to an impressive degree. After being crushed like a bug and smashed against a wall like a rag doll, Xavier is left crawling and he's covered in blood. Mystique gets one sneak attack on Apocalypse and then it's over. His hand constricts her throat, asphyxiating her.
*** [[spoiler:Jean]], meanwhile, shows that [[spoiler:Apocalypse]] was ultimately small peanuts compared to [[spoiler:the Phoenix Force]].
*** On a smaller scale, [[spoiler:Wolverine]] vs the soldiers at [[spoiler:Stryker's facility]].
*** Mystique vs one of the bouncers who is running cage matches of mutants. She tries to stop it, he gets in her way. She oneshots him with an elbow before finishing what she was doing.

* ''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.
