* ''{{ComicBook/Uber}}'': Due to being nigh-invulnerable, Battleship-class ubers have to take an insane amount of damage to even harm them. Siegmund lost his arm fighting hundreds of lesser Soviet ubers, even though he killed vast majority of them before retreating and this is how [[spoiler:Siegfried]] died, being slashed to death by several [[FragileSpeedster Zephyr-class]] ubers and blood loss doing him in rather than ''half his head'' being ''blown up''.

Siegmund [[AnArmAndALeg lost his arm arm]] early in the series after fighting hundreds of lesser nearly one hundred Tank-class Soviet ubers, Ubers, even though he killed vast majority of them before retreating and this retreating.

* ''{{Pikmin}}''. It doesn't matter how much HP that gargantuan monstrosity has, there's no foe that can't be vanquished by throwing more Pikmin at it and letting 20+ pairs of tiny fists do the work for you.

* D.Va from ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' uses a MiniMecha with a weapon that does, at best, 5 damage per pellet, and that's at point blank range... Good thing that those weapons are ''twin fully-automatic gatling shotguns with infinite ammo.''

** [[UpliftedAnimal Winston]] is the epitome of this concept. His Tesla Cannon does meager damage out the bat, but it's constant and doesn't need to be aimed, so if you manage to stay around for long enough, most smaller heroes will break down under the cuts.

Added DiffLines:

* Nero's gun in ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry4'' allows you to do this against most bosses. Yes it will take bloody '''[[DamageSpongeBoss forever]]''' and no you won't get any stylish points, but constantly spamming bosses with your infinite ammunition handgun will eventually take them down. Notably, this is a valid option against [[WakeUpCallBoss Credo]] who is very difficult to land hits on with anything else (and counterattacks) but is completely indifferent to the damage taken from gunfire. Of course, trying this against [[ThatOneBoss Dante]] will have him [[ImprobablyAimingSkills shoot your bullets out of the air with his]].


Added DiffLines:

* Swarming insects and animals as a whole revel in this trope. One bee is a nuisance, while a swarm of bees can be painful and fatal. One blackbird will get slaughtered messily by an eagle, but when the ''other 300 blackbirds'' swarm it that eagle better fly and fast or it will be pecked to death.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' lore, the province of Morrowind did not historically have the presence of [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]] prior to their "[[NotSoExtinct extinction]]". Why? They were driven away by ''[[GodDamnBats Cliff Racers]]''... Yes, those weak but hideously annoying creatures that are the bane of players everywhere were able to drive out powerful [[DragonsAreDivine Aedric (quasi-angelic) beings]] who could [[RealityWarper command elements into existence]] with a [[LanguageOfMagic few words]] simply through [[ZergRush sheer numbers]] and persistence. Come the 4th Era, after Cliff Racers [[TakeThatScrappy had been driven away]] and after [[ChekhovsVolcano Red Mountain's eruption]], a surviving dragon finally came to lair in the smoking ruins of Vvardenfell.

** On a larger scale, this would be the downfall of Uriel Septim V's attempted invasion of [[{{Wutai}} Akavir]]. Due to space restrictions on his fleet, his forces were ''under''specialized ([[InvertedTrope Inverting]] CripplingOverspecialization) except for the [[MagicKnight Battlemages]]. In nearly every direct confrontation with the [[SnakePeople Tsaesci]] forces, Uriel's legions routed them easily. However, he could not replace his losses and his army tended to suffer the heaviest losses to Tsaesci mounted raiders while they traveled or made camp due to his own lack of cavalry. Eventually forced to withdraw, Uriel would perform a HeroicSacrifice to cover the retreat of his legions.

* ''Series/KamenRiderDouble'': Kamen Rider Accel's [[SuperMode Trial form]], whose creator gives us the page quote. Its power of SuperSpeed comes at the cost of some strength, so Terui gets in dozens of rapidfire hits before the enemy can react.

* Normally, you can't do this in ''DesktopDungeons''. If you injure an enemy, then retreat to heal up, the enemy will also heal. However, Poison in this game cancels regeneration. So a very viable strategy is to attack an enemy until the next hit would kill you, cast APHEELSIK (the Poison spell), then retreat until you're at full health and resume. This is how the Assassin (the class that unlocks APHEELSIK) works.
