* Used to hilarious effect in the ''BluesBrothers'' movie's climatic action sequence. (According to the article, this movie held the Guinness world record for cars destroyed in a single movie for 18 years, and was then trumped by its sequel.) After Jake and Elwood evade every single member of the Chicago police and the Illinois state troopers, the National Guard gets called in to apprehend them. The National Guard shows up with a tank, helicopters, and several hundred assault-rifle wielding soldiers.

* In ''TheDukesOfHazzard'', the Hazzard County Sheriff's Department has an unlimited automobile budget: every week they manage to crash at least a couple but they have all-new cars next week. Possibly partly {{justified|Trope}} by the Duke boys not being the only gearheads in the county; it's probably fairly easy to find some good ole boys to help fix up the department's cars.

* ''SaintsRow'' takes this to absurd degrees, which is part of the fun. By the third game, the police have laser rifle-armed soldiers in full body armor, an aircraft carrier, VTOL jets equipped with missiles and lasers, and a ''[[AirborneAircraftCarrier flying aircraft carrier]]''.
* ''[[RedFaction Red Faction Guerilla]]'' the EDF will continue to send troops to hunt you down until you either die or manage to get to escape house. Slightly justified, since they ''are'' an army, but it gets ridiculous if you ever get your hands on mechs.
* ''PAYDAYTheHeist'':: The cops just keep on sending in [[ZergRush assaults]].

* ''VideoGame/WatchDogs'' has this straight as a nail. Especially hilarious when you realize that Aiden should be able to jam their communications, making the whole mess unmanageable for the police.

* In ''VideoGame/FableI'', becoming hostile within a city unleashes inexhaustible waves of increasingly powerful guards -- unless your alignment is Good enough to [[EasilyForgiven apologize]] and get off scot-free.

A subtrope of InfiniteSupplies. SuperTrope to IFoughtTheLawAndTheLawWon. Compare to LemmingCops, where the cops show absolutely no concern for their own personal safety. SisterTrope to ClownCarGrave, the undead equivalent.

* ''DestroyAllHumans'' sees your human foes throwing an infinite number of forces at you, whether they be cops, soldiers or government secret agents. Subverted occasionally in that eventually some of the lower forms of opposition will stop appearing at higher alert levels.

** However, the first era adverts this. Instead, there are several cops (each has it's own #). But they are invulnerable [[{{Determinator}} determinators]].
