* Music/{{Sabaton}}'s album ''The Last Stand'' is all about this and {{last stand}}s (obviously), with songs about the Spartans at Thermopylae, the Lost Battalion, the Swiss Guard in 1527, Rorke's Drift and the Samurai at Shiroyama.

* Many nationalistic songs and anthems emphasise this: [[usefulNotes/SouthAfrica Bok van Blerk]]'s ''Afrikaanerhart'' anthem about the Boer War is packed with imprecations to the Boer people to draw a line in the sand, stand fast, mark your man, and if you can't hold them, let them know they've been in a fight.

** ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert'' featured a mission to protect the Chronosphere for what seemed an ungodly length of time given the siege you were under. If you got lucky or were good at micromanagement, it was actually possible to push the enemy back and even destroy their base. However... because TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything, this was not an instant win, and instead caused the game to spawn ''two dozen Mammoth Tanks'' at the edges of the map, presumably as punishment for your insolence. This grim spectre descending on your base would have been devastating... were it not for the fact that they are [[AwesomeButImpractical so [dang] slow]] that the timer ran out before they could get there.

* There are many such missions in the ''MagicalBattleArena'' [[ExpansionPack Lyrical Pack]]. The first one, which unlocks [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs Hayate]], isn't too bad, since you can take out your enemies. The later ones, however, have you trying to survive against multiple, invincible copies of a character that are permanently in SuperMode and firing {{Limit Break}}s like there's no tomorrow.

* The battle for Castle Itter, in what is the only battle of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII where the Wehrmacht and the US army were fighting on the same side. When a castle in Austria was taken by the combination of Josef Gangl's german and John C. Lee's forces, the SS were intent on reclaiming it, forcing the two (in addition to the prisoners) to make every attempt to fight of the SS until backup arrived.
