* In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4'', [[spoiler:the final battle between Old Snake and Ocelot starts as an over-the-top cutscene brawl before entering into a three-stage fight (each stage reminiscent of the previous three ''Metal Gear Solid'' games), and degenerates into two exhausted old men slugging it out with each other.]]

** Except that this trope is played... [[TearJerker rather seriously]]...


Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' has the main fight between the titular characters. The Winter Soldier starts the fight with an assault rifle that he quickly drops in favor of a sub-machine gun. During the conflict, he's forced to use a handgun, Captain America's shield, and two different knives until he eventually has no options but to fight barehanded.

* One climactic fight in the ''Jerusalem Delivered'' takes place between two knights who end up closer than a sword's length and resort to shield bashing, headbutting and eventually wrestling.

* In VideoGame/DwarfFortress, soldiers who lose the weapon ([[AnArmAndALeg or limb]]) they were attacking with will more often than not keep fighting with whatever's at hand, and lacking that start punching, kicking, biting and wrestling. Expect such scenes to come by the dozen when a siege occurs.

** Jack's first battle against Aku's minions begins with him in full armor riding atop a six legged horse creature, shooting diamond tipped arrows and attacking with lances and booby traps. It ends with him dismounted, naked from the waist up, covered in oil, and armed only with his sword and sheer rage.

Added DiffLines:

* Fairly common in UsefulNotes/RobotCombat competitions like ''{{Series/Battlebots}}''. Contestants show up with sophisticated killing machines that are brimming with weapons. After only minutes of in-ring action, weapons and wheels will break off or be disabled. The battered bots will then resort to ramming each other (if they can) to score points with judges.

Added DiffLines:

* World War One (at least on the Western Front in France) was a large scale version. Instead of Napoleonic style field battles of manoeuvre and tactics it rapidly became two entrenched armies simply throwing artillery fire and masses of men at each other's defences in brute force attempts to break through.

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'''s battle with The Guardian begins as a swordfight. Then The Guardian disarms him. Jack grabs a spear and The Guardian discards his sword for a pair of sai. They disarm each other. Jack grabs a pair of shields and The Guardian answers with a machine gun and grenades. Jack deflects one of The Guardian's grenades and [[BerserkButton blows up his suit]], causing The Guardian to ''eat'' Jack's shield and the whole thing turning into a fistfight.
