* ''Series/BabylonFive'' had a habit of upping the ante on this trope throughout the series. Of particular note is the large two-way space battle in the third season episode "Shadow Dancing" and the even larger three-way space battle in the fourth-season "Into The Fire".

* The battle at Seireden between the Flame Hazes and Crimson Denizens lead by the Snake of the Festival in the final season of ''ShakuganNoShana'' was a multi-episode epic and all-out war fought on several fronts, with [[ItsRainingMen Paratrooper Flame Haze]] and [[TheSiege siege]] [[StormingTheCastle warfare]]. The battle in Misaki City that takes place not long afterwards definitely qualifies as well.

* ''TheSalvationWar'' has many, but probably the best would be Michael vs Yahweh, with in-universe OrchestralBombing, including the theme from the Dam Busters and Holst's Mars.

* Almost every ''Film/JamesBond'' movie prior to ''Film/ForYourEyesOnly'' featured one of these, with armies of hundreds of extras clashing and killing each other off in choreographed battles stretching across an entire huge secret enemy base. Almost no movie after that has, because apparently it makes Bond more heroic to be able to do it all by himself now.

* ''VideoGame/ElderScrollsV:Skyrim has several during the civil war, including Whiterun, and depending on what side you choose, Windhelm or Solitude.

misuse. A better trope would be Shell Shocked Soldier
A Big Badass Battle Sequence isn't just a battle, it's war. This is the battle that makes other battles look like schoolyard scuffles. Expect a high death toll, either shown or implied. The best examples of this trope show not only the battle itself, but the preparations for it and the [[DespairEventHorizon aftermath]]. [[WarIsHell Don't expect it to be pretty.]]

* There's a few major battles in ''FanFic/WhatLiesBeyondTheWalls'', but the biggest one so far has been the invasion of Tearmann, which was so chaotic that it lasted two entire chapters and killed off quite a few [[MauveShirt Mauve Shirts]].
