** ''Film/TheLastJedi'' opens with a space battle over the Resistance's base of D'Qar, with Poe launching a daring strike against the First Order Dreadnaught in order to buy time for the evacuation; a massive furball ensues as the Resistance bombers make their way through hordes of TIE Fighters. The fight culminates in the Dreadnaught's destruction, though at the cost of much of the Resistance's starfighter corps as well as all of their bombers. The Resistance spends the rest of the movie on the run, too crippled to conduct an effective counterattack against the pursuing First Order.

** The spin-off ''VideoGame/AceCombatInfinity'' takes cues from Strangereal titles, namely a massive aerial furball over Area [=B7R=] (located in Nevada here) between the UNF and USEA called Operation Battle Axe, and Operation Bunker Shot over the Adriatic Sea. The latter features a sea and air battle that [[spoiler:almost ends in failure as the OLDS unexpectedly wipes out most of the UNF's landing forces, but get back up after a HeroicSecondWind fueled by Goodfellow's resolve and [[OneManArmy Reaper]]'s presence]]. From then on, Operation Bunker Shot is fought to the sound of a remix of ''Ace Combat 04''[='=]s "Blue Skies".

** ''VideoGame/AceCombat04ShatteredSkies'' has a massive furball over Comona Island as ISAF attempts to launch a satellite for Operation Countdown, with Erusea deploying a large aerial force to foil it. The hard-rocking "Comona" plays as you're immersing yourself in the battle.

** ''VideoGame/AceCombatZero'': Area B7R, also known as [[ArthurianMotifs the Round Table]], is prone to frequent furballs involving [[BadassArmy Belka's legendary air force]] and Osea's army, with several mercenaries thrown in, most tellingly [[ArmyOfOne Galm Team]]. Most dogfights in it are accompanied by hard rocking themes like "Mayhem", or flamenco-flavoured songs like "The Round Table".

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/AceCombat'' is no stranger to prolonged aerial furballs.
** ''VideoGame/AceCombat04ShatteredSkies'' has a massive furball over Comona Island as ISAF attempts to launch a satellite for Operation Countdown, with Erusea deploying a large aerial force to foil it. The hard-rocking "Comona" plays as you're immersing yourself in the battle.
** ''VideoGame/AceCombat5TheUnsungWar'' has an interesting subversion in the fleet battle over the Ceres Ocean towards the end of the story. The Yuktobanian fleet prepares to attack the ''Kestrel'', but are instead led astray by the revelation that their then-kidnapped Prime Minister is on-board, leading to mutiny on the Yuke side. The Osean fleet then approaches with the intent to sink the Yuktobanians, the Yuktobanians who side with the ''Kestrel'', and the ''Kestrel'' herself altogether, so Razgriz Squadron launches and singlehandedly takes down all belligerents unwilling to defect to the newly-formed ''Kestrel'' fleet. The entire battle is fought to the tune of "The Journey Home" blaring on all radio comms.
** ''VideoGame/AceCombatZero'': Area B7R, also known as [[ArthurianMotifs the Round Table]], is prone to frequent furballs involving [[BadassArmy Belka's legendary air force]] and Osea's army, with several mercenaries thrown in, most tellingly [[ArmyOfOne Galm Team]]. Most dogfights in it are accompanied by hard rocking themes like "Mayhem", or flamenco-flavoured songs like "The Round Table".
** ''VideoGame/AceCombat6FiresOfLiberation'' takes it even further by integrating large scale operations into its gameplay mechanic, allowing for simultaneous air and ground assault scenarios through allied [=NPCs=]. The culmination of all this is the Liberation of Gracemeria, where you take part in a ''six''-pronged battle to retake Emmeria's capital from Estovakian forces on the sea, air and land.
