** But exemplified Penetrating. All attacks with that Power Advantage do a minimum (very small) amount of damage regardless of defenses.

* In ''FanFic/WishCarefully'', Harry's defeat of the Death Eaters happened on a long-term society wide scale. The Death Eaters and Voldemort wanted to rule the Wizarding England without dealing with any muggles, squibs, muggleborn or any blood traitors. [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor They got what]] [[PyrrhicVillainy they wanted]]. But their economy is completely ruined because most producers of goods and services are gone. Years of inbreeding caused future generations to become magically weak and the population is slowly dying off and no one wanted to immigrate to England. They are trapped under Voldemort's rule who had become even more crazy and cruel with no way to leave.

Years skilled service workers who kept things running smoothly) left in the Light's exile. Meanwhile, years of pureblood inbreeding has caused future generations to become magically weak and intellectually weaker and the population is slowly dying off off, and no one wanted wants to immigrate to England. They England (even {{mail order bride}}s won't be given to them). Not to mention they are trapped under Voldemort's rule [[TheCaligula Voldemort's]] rule, who had himself has only become even more crazy unhinged and cruel crueler, with no way to leave. Lucius Malfoy even calls Harry's plan [[GuileHero "Slytherin-like"]] and believes Dumbledore would've been horrified by this.

* The modern [[GatlingGood gatling gun]], sometimes known as a rotary cannon or minigun, is a good example of this trope, [[MoreDakka firing off hundreds of high-velocity rounds a minute]] to [[ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy eliminate a comparatively fewer number of targets]]. Largely forgotten during the first half of the 20th century, [[RetroUpgrade it was brought back in the 1950's]] when faster speeds made it increasingly difficult for most other forms of gun armament to reliably bring down aircraft, as they lacked sufficient stopping power or could not fire fast enough to ensure hits. The gatling gun's effectiveness against fast-moving targets has also led to it being used to [[ShootTheBullet shoot down missiles by slamming enough shells into them so that they either go off target, fall apart, or prematurely explode]].

** One BattleMech in particular had ten guns, each of which did two points of damage, split into two one-point locations. The flavour text for the Mech stated, "It's like bleeding to death from a thousand tiny paper cuts."

* Embodied in ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'' by such things as short-range missiles, LB-X autocannons firing cluster shot, or most infantry attacks, all of which randomly scatter small damage packets across the target's hit location chart. Even if this doesn't hit a preexisting gap in the target's armor or score a lucky critical hit straight through it, said armor is almost universally ablative and ''will'' eventually be worn down, exposing the vulnerable internal structure and components underneath. And regardless of how heavy a 'mech is or how beefy its armor is, ''every'' mech (outside of non-Tourney-grade rule sets) can only take a light amount of damage to the head, and each successful plink attack has a 1 in 36 chance of [[BoomHeadshot hitting the head]]. Even if head armor is not pierced, the pilot themselves will still feel the hurt.

Even if head armor is not pierced, the scant armor is still reduced, and the pilot themselves will still feel is injured and can only take 5 such "injuries" before being completely incapacitated. At the hurt.opposite end of the hit location roll table is the "[[ArmorPiercingAttack thru-armor crit]]", which has the potential to inflict internal damage even if armor isn't completely ablated. If it's the traditional "always center torso" rule, the engine and gyro can become damaged. If using the elective "floating crit" rule that means "reroll the hit location and also do a crit chance roll", then it can potentially hit an [[MadeOfExplodium ammo bin]].

*** The German Army lost the bulk of its experienced Non-Commissioned Officers (NCOs) and Category-A manpower in the titanic ''Verdun'' campaign of February-December 1916 (French) and ''Somme'' campaign of July-November 1916 (French, British, British Commonwealth). The ''Passchendaele'' campaign of July-November 1917, the greatest campaign in British military history, finished off the last experienced NCOs and Category-A manpower. The Germans' own Spring Offensive Operation of March-June 1918 took a chunk out of their experienced officers (who had to put themselves at risk to compensate for the loss of the experienced NCOs), ate through the last remnants of their Category-A manpower, and wasted much of the Category-B manpower as well. Finally, the British Commonwealth-Franco-American ''Hundred Days'' Offensive of July-November 1918 ate through Germany's experienced officers and Category-B manpower, leaving them with a poorly-led and badly demoralised force composed of Category-C and D manpower. Upon the armistice, the German Army teetered on the verge of total defeat.
