* The [[SpaceRomans Cabal]] in ''Videogame/{{Destiny}}'' are a colossal race of powerful, rhino-like aliens who have occupied Mars and are engaged in a massive, constant war of attrition with all other contenders for control of the planet. The other species in the system have strange magical powers granted by cosmic entities or dark gods, or have hyper-advanced time travel and reality-warping technology. The Cabal, on the other hand, have numbers, firepower, organization, discipline, and sheer, bloody-minded tenacity, which is enough that they're the biggest and most powerful military force in the entire solar system.

* SequelSeries ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' has Amon's [[AntiMagicalFaction Equalist]] foot soldiers, his Chi-Blockers. They're all BadassNormal GasMaskMooks trained specifically in a PressurePoint-striking fighting method designed to temporarily [[PowerNullifier disarm]] and [[TheParalyzer disable]] the wielders of ElementalPowers. One easily disabled TheChosenOne Korra in a confrontation.



* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', the series to which ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' was the sequel series to, Chief Hakoda's forces from the Southern Water Tribe counted as this, who, assisted by earthbender technology and [[spoiler: Sokka's inventions, broke through the most powerful blockade in the whole fire nation and would have captured the capital had the Fire Nation not been in hiding]].

* ''Literature/TheMalazanBookOfTheFallen'' has this in spades. Bridgeburners, Malaz 7th Army, Crimson Guard and later Bonehunters. There is also the the 'Punitive Army of the Seguleh' in ''Literature/MemoriesOfIce'', because Seguleh are just so good at fighting, that they only need to send three people when they want to crush an entire empire of cannibals.

** The [[AmazonBrigade asari]] or the [[StateSec salarians]]. Sure, their armies are much, ''much'' smaller, but they're no less BadAss. Consider the fact, for instance, that each asari soldier is a [[SuperSoldier highly trained]] [[MagicKnight psychic commando]] and that the salarians are reputably the most badass spies in existence. This because in order to become a major race in the Mass Effect universe, you have to demonstrate your bad-ass army qualities on a large scale. It's made clear in [[AllThereInTheManual the codex]] that a person going one-on-one against an asari commando (unless s/he's Commander Shepard or a krogan battlemaster) is practically committing suicide.

** The Lizardmen. Skinks are fast, nimble, and fire deadly accurate volleys of poison darts, but if you can pin them down, you can kill them. Unfortunately, while you've been pinning them down, the Saurus have arrived, meaning you're about to be slaughtered and probably eaten by hulking reptilian warriors who have been purpose-bred to kill since before humanity first used fire, and if they're Temple Guard, wielding halberds that can casually crush the highest-quality armour humans can make. Backing this up are literal dinosaurs and the Slann, who are some of the most terrifyingly potent mages in the Warhammer world, capable of snuffing out entire units with magical death or bestowing spectacular boons on friendly units; in the eighth edition rules, a Temple Guard unit that a Slann had buffed with Birona's Timewarp was capable of being charged on all sides by zombies and skeletons and winning the combat handily.

* The Red Company in ''Literature/TheTraitorSonCycle''. With exception of three or four sorcerers, they're all {{Badass Normal}}s who, armed in medieval technology, routinely fight and slay beasts and monsters bigger, tougher, nastier and more numerous than them. They're so good at it that when they're tasked with fighting other humans, they complain that they're bored.
