In fiction ConservationOfNinjutsu is powerful beyond compare. One ninja, or frankly any humanoid, will have no problem taking out an entire army. Unfortunately for the army's leader, they're not GenreSavvy. Of course the only thing they can think, and thus shout, when seeing the carnage laid out is, "It's just one man!" or, "What can one man do?"

* Repeatedly shouted in the ''[[VideoGame/FirstEncounterAssaultRecon FEAR]]'' games by assorted human villains as the Point Man and Michael Beckett tear through their troops. Norton Mapes comments on it in the first game while you're blasting through the ATC troops in the Vault ("Come on, he's just one guy? [[SurroundedByIdiots What good are you jackoffs?]]") and Colonel Vanek berates his men repeatedly while fighting through the labs under Wade Elementary, before finally admitting to Beckett's OneManArmy status. The Phase Commanders and other ATC officers in ''FEAR 3'' are GenreSavvy enough to understand how dangerous the Point Man is, and instead of berating them for being overwhelmed, they just order their men to stay in position [[BadBoss under pain of dismemberment.]]

* An InvokedTrope in the comedy ''Film/{{Water 1985}}''. Sir Malcolm Leveridge is having to explain to the Right Honourable MargaretThatcher how he let an American company get the sole rights to Cascara's mineral water. The IronLady decides that the solution is to secretly back a revolution that will nationalise the industry in exchange for granting the Brits the bottling rights.

[[AC:{{Anime}} & {{Manga}}]]
* Very common in ''OnePiece'', especially during Enies Lobby.
** The most notable instance is when [[spoiler:Luffy knocks out ''50,000 fishmen'' with a '''glare'''. A DeathGlare powered by {{awesomeness|IsAForce}}, but still-a ''glare''.]]
* At the conclusion of the Wave Mission arc of ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' Zabuza's arms are rendered useless and he ends up attacking an army of mercenaries with just a kunai held between his teeth. A mercenary in the front line mockingly asks what one badly-injured shinobi can do against their numbers... right before Zabuza ventilates his chest and [[FoeTossingCharge starts carving a path to Gato]].

--> '''Foch''': "A single British soldier--and we will see to it that he is killed."
