* The animated film ''{{Hoodwinked}}'' plays this when Red Puckett confronts Boingo in the cable car terminal cavern. However, the "guards" (the ski team henchmen) just stand aside and watch their boss engage Red in a very [[TheMatrix Matrix-esque]] beatdown.
* ''Ben10Omniverse'' had an episode where Ben tries to defy Emperor Milleus in a duel, only for Milleus to summon his guards for help. Unfortunately for him, Ben being an OneManArmy, that doesn't really ends up helping him.

* ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' has ComicBook/BlackWidow visiting [[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk Bruce Banner]] with assurances it's only the two of them. Then he shows a flash of anger because he "wanted to see what she'd do." (What she does is immediately point a handgun at him.) Once it's clear he's not turning into an enormous green rage-monster, she tells the veritable SWAT team outside that they can stand down.

* In {{Angband}} some monsters have the tag "Usually appear in groups" which is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. If a unique version of said monster spawns, it will instead say "Usually appears with reinforcements." Orcs in particular like to appear in large numbers and unique orcs can be a severe challenge at low levels due to bringing dozens and dozens of allies to surround you with.

May result in the invocation of BigDamnHeroes if the good guy is [[OhCrap in too deep]]. Conversely, should the hero do better than expected, the villain may realize that [[GonnaNeedMoreX he needs reinforcements]] and [[WeHaveReserves act accordingly]]. At any rate, the use of this trope can demonstrate that the villain is sufficiently DangerouslyGenreSavvy to know not to fight the hero one-on-one when he can bring in his minions to support him.
