Added DiffLines:

* The nature of [[CastFromHitPoints crew as damage points]] in ''VideoGame/StarControl'' means that at the end just one crewman (assumed to be her [[TheCaptain captain]]) can be controlling the entire ship. This becomes odd in some ships such as the Earthling Cruiser or the Spathi Eluder that show in the animations two crewmen, and continue so even in that cae.

** The Brawn is there for maintenance, cargo handling, company, and remote operations.

to:

** The Brawn is primarily there for to keep the brain company, provide a physical presence outside of the ship and provide a layer of redundancy. In theory the brain can use their remotes to handle all routine tasks (such as maintenance, cargo handling, company, and remote operations.handling etc.) but having the brawn on board means that repairs can be made if the brain loses that capability.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/FTLFasterThanLight'' splits the difference. One person ''can'' control the ship by themselves, but without additional crew at the various duty stations for weapons, shields etc they function noticeably worse. And that's before they start taking damage.

* In the 1992 Steven Seagal film ''Film/UnderSiege'', a crew of 3-4 men, out of which no one directly claims to be a trained artilleryman, load, aim and fire the 16 inch main gun of USS ''Missouri'' (BB-63) towards the small target which is a surfaced Diesel submarine. In RealLife, the machinery of each gun took 47 sailors to operate, a specialist observer operated the turret rangefinder and a trained artillery officer used an electromechanical computer to aim the gun.

And the submarine was far too close to target with a 16 inch turret gun.

** ''Literature/TheCourtshipOfPrincessLeia'' has Luke Skywalker flying the Falcon - whose unmodified version is supposed to be controlled by at least three people with another two at the guns, but has been altered extensively - and using the Force to operate all of the controls, including the turbolasers, with extreme precision.

** On the other hand, the [[AllInTheManual manual]] states that the reason the Mammoth tank and its equivalents in all games are able to self-repair is because they're large enough to house a full repair crew onboard.

* Stated in the ''VideoGame/{{Earth 2150}}'' [[AllInTheManual manual]] that [[TheEmpire Eurasian Dynasty's]] tanks are, essentially, late 20th century tanks that have been refitted to be piloted by a single cyborg.

** In ''Film/{{Battleship}}'', the ''Missouri'' is once again operated by a crew that can't even be called "skeleton", about half of whom are UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo vets (who actually know the systems) and the other half are the crew of a modern missile destroyer used to things like all-digital systems, computers, and GPS. And yet they manage to make the battleship [[spoiler:slide sideways by simply dropping the anchor]].

** ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'', the ''Vengeance'' was designed to need a much smaller crew than its predecessors and could be operated by one person if necessary. [[spoiler: This is quite fortunate for Kirk, Scotty, and Harrison when they board it to capture the ship from Marcus then again for Harrison when he truly does have to pilot it by himself later]].

The novelization also makes it clear that Harrison's ability to fly the ship solo into combat in an effective manner is also largely due to his superhuman mental abilities and reflexes]].

*** The Falcon can actually be operated entirely by one person, but firing the main guns from the cockpit with any kind of accuracy is damn near impossible (Luke's ability to do so in the above novel, even with the Force on his side, was considered a mighty achievement). And if something breaks down (like the hyperdrive did in [=TESB=]) there's no way to fix it without leaving the pilot's seat.

*** Many smaller ships throughout the ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' also have slave circuitry, which fell out of favor for warships after the Katana Fleet disaster but remains highly advantageous for smaller freighters and civilian space yachts. Han Solo, on the other hand, specifically refuses to include such a system on the Falcon, because he doesn't want anybody else being able to remotely control his ship, ''ever''.

** One humorous dialogue option in ''StarWarsKnightsOfTheOldRepublic II'' while exploring a capital ship whose crew had all been mysteriously slain has the player suggest commandeering the ship to escape the facility we were trapped in. Cue [[DeadpanSnarker Atton Rand]]:

* In ''Film/XXx 2: State of the Union'': Darius' single handed operation of the tank stretches believability, it does look more awkward than his pursuers (fully staffed tanks) but it is his first time.
