* ''{{Warhammer}}'' allows {{Hero Unit}}s and [[SergeantRock squad leaders]] to make personal challenges during combat rounds, which creates this effect as it's resolved before the rest of the combat (whether the fighting is pausing to wait for them or whirling around them is presumably left to the players' imaginations).
** As of 6th edition this mechanic has been carried over to ''{{Warhammer40000}}'' as well.

* Happens in ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' in the Golden Age arc, though less because the soldiers are too busy or too awed to get between the general and Guts and because those that tried to interfere got killed.

* Combining with KeystoneArmy, this is how most ''{{Literature/Redwall}}'' final battles end, the book's hero taking out the BigBad in single combat and the rest of the vermin fleeing for their lives.
