* Many, many animated Disney films (both classic ones and ones from more modern eras) often have a climax that's all about this, with [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits various unlikely hero characters]] taking on the villains in a zany brawl with plenty of opportunities for outrageous slapstick and similar comical moments in what may well be an otherwise serious scene [[MoodWhiplash (or leading up to one)]]. Recent examples include:
** Scuttle leading various other marine creatures in [[WeddingSmashers crashing the wedding]] of Prince Eric and Vanessa in ''TheLittleMermaid''
** The servants-turned-household objects defending their master's castle from a mob in ''BeautyAndTheBeast''
** ''Everyone'' joining the fight atop Pride Rock to overthrow King Scar in ''TheLionKing'', resulting in [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Crowning Moments Of Awesome]] for Pumbaa [[UnstoppableRage ("They call me...MISTER P!")]] and Rafiki (who's a ''priest'')
** The climactic plaza battle in ''TheHunchbackOfNotreDame''

* ''Film/EnterTheDragon'' ends with a massive kung fu battle. On one side you have Han's army of martial arts students, trained to kill mercilessly with their bare hands. On the other side you have... a bunch of vagrants and runaways, kidnapped from the streets of Hong Kong and freshly released from Han's dungeons. The two sides appear to be about evenly matched.

* The TropeNamer is Creator/CarlDouglas' "Kung Fu Fighting". Besides the famous refrain, the rest of the lyrics dip into AllChinesePeopleKnowKungFu as well.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'' specifically states that anytime someone throws a chair, everyone will engage in a mass fight. Huey and Uncle Ruckus are apparently gifted martial artists that are good with melee weaponry; in Ruckus' case, this is extremely bizarre (given his terrible health and physical ability, blatantly referred to in previous episodes). Colonel Stinkmeaner started out as a subversion (Huey assumed his blindness made him Comicbook/{{Daredevil}}, but it turns out he's just a blind old man who got a lucky shot in), but (ridiculously) [[LikeABadassOutOfHell returned from Hell]] a martial arts master, the episode implying that he was trained by ''{{Satan}} himself''. This was before his Hateocracy showed up, where they went up against hired bodyguard Bushido Brown
