** The Final Offensive (most notably the Second Battle of Sol) serves as this for the Reaper War, as it breaks the Reapers' back and sends the survivors fleeing from the galaxy. Though ''technically'', the actual final conflict of the war is the allied expeditionary force (which was launched years earlier) reaching and assaulting the Reapers' base in Dark Space.

* ''Fanfic/EarthsAlienHistory'' has a couple examples, due to having several {{War Arc}}s:
** The Battle of the Citadel effectively serves as this for the Mekon War. While there are a few more skirmishes with the Romulans and Gamilas afterwards, with the Mekon out of the picture and the Citadel recaptured by allied forces, his partners soon sue for peace.
** Operation Harrowing essentially serves as this for the Vinn War, as it proves that the Daisy Cutter weapon can wipe out the Vinn in mass, bringing them to the negotiation table and bringing about a ceasefire.

* Final Battle is the last Wrestling/RingOfHonor show of the year and is usually used for wrapping up ongoing angles. However, that doesn't mean new angles will not be started or teased during the event.

* Final Battle ''Final Battle'' is the last Wrestling/RingOfHonor show of the year and is usually used for wrapping up ongoing angles. However, that doesn't mean new angles will not be started or teased during the event. In 2017 ''Final Battle'' was followed by a television taping and thus became an ArtifactTitle, at least concerning ROH's live matches.

** The Shattered World arc (aka the ''Sonic Unleashed'' adaptation) ended with a short final battle against Eggman and Super Sonic along a Chip-controlled Gaia Colossus against Perfect Dark Gaia.



** The Shattered World arc (aka the ''Sonic Unleashed'' adaptation) ended with a short final battle against Eggman and Super Sonic along a Chip-controlled Gaia Colossus against Perfect Dark Gaia. And due to the series being cancelled immediately afterwards, it also serves as the final battle of the whole comic.



** ''Film/JusticeLeague2017'' has the League fighting Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons to stop the [[HostileTerraforming conversion of Earth]].

* ''Series/StargateSG1'' episode "''Reckoning''", part 2. SG-1, the Jaffa, and the Tok'ra vs. the Goa'uld and the Replicators as the fate of the Galaxy hangs in the balance. Originally was intended as the GrandFinale.
** The same applies to the battle of Antarctica in the the two-part episode "''Lost City''", which was also meant to be a GrandFinale.
* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' has the final Battle of Cardassia in the ep "''What You Leave Behind''". Klingons, Romulans, and Federation vs. the Dominion and all their allies. Massive ship wrecking ensues.
* ''Series/DoctorWho''
** [[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWhoSpecialTheLastAdventure "The Last Adventure"]] audio series features the Sixth Doctor in his final encounter with the Valeyard.
** The first UnCancelled series finale [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E12BadWolf "Bad Wolf"]]/[[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E13ThePartingOfTheWays "The Parting of the Ways"]] ends in a Final Battle between the controllers and contestants of the Game Station and the Daleks.
** The second, [[Recap/DoctorWhoS28E12ArmyOfGhosts "Army of Ghosts"]]/[[Recap/DoctorWhoS28E13Doomsday "Doomsday"]], in a MeleeATrois between the Cybermen, Torchwood and the Daleks.
** [[Recap/DoctorWho50thASTheDayOfTheDoctor ''The Day of the Doctor'']] the final battle of the Time War is shown, with all of the Dalek fleet bombarding Gallifrey. It appears to end in the destruction of both sides when the War Doctor activated "The Moment", [[spoiler:however it is revealed that in reality the first 13 incarnations of the Doctor teamed up to move Gallifrey into another universe, causing the Daleks to destroy themselves]].
** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS36E12TheDoctorFalls "The Doctor Falls"]] has the Twelfth Doctor fighting three generations of Cybermen and [[spoiler: two incarnations of the Master]]. Creator/StevenMoffat actually billed it as "the Doctor's final battle", with an ending that leads directly into the 2017 ChristmasEpisode that depicts his regeneration into his thirteenth numbered self.
* In ''Series/KamenRiderKuuga'', the final battle between Yuusuke and the BigBad goes from a generic tokusatsu final battle[[spoiler:, [[DeconstructedTrope to something a little more realistic]]: a fist fight in their human forms]]. It's pretty brutal compared to other final battles in Kamen Rider, with bleeding from both sides [[spoiler:and the battle ends not with a finishing move, but with a DoubleKnockout that lead to a MutualKill for the BigBad]].
** ''Series/KamenRiderRyuki'' is also a separation from the norm since its Final Battle doesn't even involve its protagonist. Instead, it is Kamen Rider Knight who faces off against [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard Kamen Rider Odin]]. Besides this deviation, the battle is carried out in total sombriety [[spoiler: and Knight only 'wins' when the BigBad destroys Odin in a fit of rage that ultimately does nothing to prevent the fact that Knight had been dealt a fatal blow and dies moments later after using the Rider War's prize to save his girlfriend.]]
* On the ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' side of Toei's live action Toku {{Cash Cow Franchise}}s, ''Series/ChoujuuSentaiLiveman'' had a unique final battle: [[spoiler: a regular battle with a Monster Of The Week, with a short break where Yuusuke duels The Dragon, Guardnoid Gash. The Big Bad, Bias, dies with Gash in their collapsing lair.]]
* ''Series/{{Merlin|2008}}'' ends with the final battle from the legends, the Battle of Camlann.
* As expected (as it's based on historical events), the final season of ''Series/SpartacusBloodAndSand'' ends with the final large-scale battle between Spartacus' rebels and Crassus' army. [[spoiler:The romans win, with the majority of the rebels (including Spartacus himself) falling in battle. However, a handful survive and escape, and Spartacus went out content, knowing he died a free man.]]
* ''Series/{{The 100}}'' Season 1 ends with a huge battle when the Grounder army assaults the 100's camp.
** [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in the Season 2 finale: we're all geared up for the allied armies of the Grounders and Sky People to invade Mount Weather, but [[spoiler:the Grounders cut a deal with Mount Weather and retreat from the battle, and the Sky People retreat now that they're outnumbered]]. In the end, our MainCharacters have to rely on infiltration and sabotage to resolve the plot, instead.
* Jack Bauer and Belcheck [[StormingTheCastle storming the Letitcia]] to stop [[spoiler: [[BigBad Cheng]] [[HijackedByGanon Zhi]]]] in ''Series/TwentyFourLiveAnotherDay''.
* ''Series/ZNation'': The Season 2 finale ends the StoryArc that had been running since the pilot, and subsequently features the heroes' final showdown with the Zeroes Cartel, the main antagonists of the season, who had also been TheManBehindTheMan in Season 1.
* The GrandFinale of ''Series/PersonOfInterest'', [[Recap/PersonOfInterestS05E13 "return 0"]], shows Team Machine's LastStand against Samaritan and its men.
* ''Series/CrisisOnEarthX'', the Franchise/{{Arrowverse}}'s 2017 CrisisCrossover, culminates with a truly massive battle, with [[Series/{{Arrow}} all the]] [[Series/TheFlash2014 Earth-1]] [[Series/LegendsOfTomorrow heroes]] (as well as [[Series/{{Supergirl2015}} Supergirl and Alex]] and a couple of [[WesternAnimation/FreedomFightersTheRay Freedom Fighters]]) joining together to take on the army of Nazis from Earth-X led by [[EvilCounterpart Dark Arrow/the Fuhrer, Overgirl, and Reverse-Flash]].
