** Daenerys acquires an army of Unsullied spearman. Conditioned to be immune to fear and pain, they are considered to be the finest soldiers in the world. Their intense training and fierce devotion to their master makes them one of the qualitatively strongest armies in the world. According to a History and Lore segment, the Free City of Qohor once bought an army of three thousand Unsullied to protect the city from a horde of ''fifty thousand'' Dothraki lead by one Khal Temmo. Only six hundred Unsullied were left alive after the battle, but Khal Temmo, all his sons and his bloodriders were dead, and the remaining Dothraki all cut their braids and retreated in shame.

* On a similar note, TowerDefense game Alien Creeps TD from Outplay Entertainment has the Terran Shield Initiative. Set TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture, when aliens attacked all the militaries of the world jointly allied with tech industry corporations. This means the Terran Shield Initiative has Army Rangers and Delta Force being its RedshirtArmy and humanity has access to portable fusion power, LightningGun technology, rail guns, cyborgs, artillery-sized machine guns, laser weapons and A.I. robots. The Initiative also has heroes that range from BadassNormal that look like they're from Franchise/GIJoe and ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberianDawn'' to guys that could have come from Marvel or DC comics and ''VideoGame/OverWatch''.

Human tech is so advanced that it turns out Earth fired the first shot to start the war, one tech company's orbital weapon platform accidentally fired a shot that almost hit the aliens' planet.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Paranoia}}'', the elite Vulture Warriors of Armed Forces easily outshine even the better Troubleshooters when it comes to direct combat, albeit at the expense of things like subtlety and cunning.
** The Troubleshooters are more known for being the RedshirtArmy, but they can push into Badass Army territory as well. In general, they're described as the largest, best-armed group of psychopaths ever assembled; they're given combat training, lethal weapons, and permission to use them openly, and they were at least devious enough to rise above Infrared clearance (usually by fingering a buddy for treason as evidence of extreme loyalty). Faced with personal agendas and grudges, backfiring weapons, unreliable information, and actual competent enemies, good enough players can ''still'' (almost, sorta) succeed at the mission.

* ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'': The Victorians' RatedMForManly [[RightWingMilitiaFanatic militia]] troops completely crush everybody they go up against, even though they consist entirely of light infantry with obsolete equipment, due primarily to [[ConfusionFu outside-the-box guerilla tactics]] and an absolutely ruthless disregard for such silly things as the laws and customs of war[[note]]at one point they get the idea to deter air-strikes by kidnapping the families of the enemy pilots and using them as human shields - more worringly the book presents them as ''the good guys''[[/note]]. But mostly because of PlotArmor - the book is a Christian libertarian AuthorTract and an ''extremely bad'' one at that.

** It should be noted that the Turians are the only race to face a major Reaper offensive on their homeworld, and not be almost completely overwhelmed almost immediately, unlike the asari, batarians and humanity, though last ones managed to keep themselves in fight through guerilla tactics even on Earth itself.
