* The final boss battle in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'' can be this, if you have the Fierce Diety mask. In fact, every boss battle in the game is this when the player uses the Fierce Diety mask. That is the reason why the Fierce Diety mask can only be used during boss battles. (Except via an unsurprisingly frequently exploited GoodBadBug.)

** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', there is widespread evidence that Calamity Ganon inflicted this upon the kingdom a century ago. ''Every'' fort, garrison, and training camp Link stumbles across are in ruin or re-purposed by monsters into homes. Several battlefields containing shattered Guardian hulks are littered with rusting swords and shields concentrated in small clusters, giving the sense of a BolivianArmyEnding. If one reviews the world map and plots the location of the military camps, it becomes apparent Hyrule expected Ganon to attack from outside the kingdom and make his way to the palace. They never expected him to emerge from Hyrule Castle itself.

* Happened in-universe in EVEOnline. The Amarr Empire was extremely powerful and held a huge amount of territory, and became so arrogant that they attacked the reclusive, trans-human [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul Jove]]. They got utterly and completely crushed.

* Glass Joe, from PunchOut, can be knocked out in one properly-timed hit to the gut, or [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential several to the jaw]], all while he fails to retaliate properly. It is quite amusing.

*** The same can happen in [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Alpha Sapphire]] for an entirely different reason -- the Thunder TM. Thunder is an exceptionally powerful Electric-type move, but it has low accuracy -- except in the rain, which the Kyogre with Blue Orb always generates. Also, Kyogre is able to learn Thunder, and it can be bought for cash (which you have plenty of).

** It's implied that Nilfgaard's invasion of the Northern Kingdoms was a walkover. Temeria, Aedirn, Lyria and Rivia all fell to the Nilfgaardians within a single month, with only Redania (which absorbed the neighbouring kingdom of Kaedwen) offering resistance.

** Much of the war in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' counts. While small victories are made here and there, everything is just a holding action until the Crucible is completed. The only two species that really put up a hard fight against the Reapers are the turians and krogan, and even they suffer massive casualties and eventually are forced to pull back and leave their homeworlds behind.

Species like the Batarians, the Asari, the Hanar and Humanity all lose their homeworlds to the Reapers in a matter of ''hours''.

** When they finally arrive in the galaxy in ''Mass Effect 3'' the Reapers offer curbstomp after curbstomb to just about everyone who resists them. The Batarian, Asari and Human homeworlds all fall to the Reapers ''very'' quickly. So quickly, in fact, that those invasions are measured in ''hours'' rather than days, weeks or months. Only the Turians, the undisputed finest soldiers in the galaxy, are able to stand up to the Reapers for longer than a few weeks, and even then it's just barely and with help from the Krogan.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Warlight}}'', an Indie Risk-like online game, late game is often a CurbStompBattle, as one player will finaly have sufficient income to steamroll through the entire map.

* The three final battles in {{OFF}} may turn out like this. If you collected all Grand items, you are leveled up enough to take down [[spoiler:the Queen]] without much effort (poison everyone, spam your most powerful moves). [[spoiler:Hugo]] is even easier, since [[spoiler:[[TearJerker he doesn't even fight back]]]]. If you [[spoiler:chose the Special Ending, just Palsy the enemy and hit with your most powerful move]]. This is exaggerated to the point where [[spoiler:[[FinalBoss the Bad Batter]]]] [[EpicFail may not even get the chance to damage you]].
