** The earliest ''Franchise/StarWars'' example is of course [[Film/ANewHope the original]], with the Death Star's [[AchillesHeel exhaust port]]. Reused in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' with the Death Star II's main reactor, not to mention Palpatine dying with it. These both are arguably subversions, however, given that the Empire, in the original ExpandedUniverse, kicked the rebels off the moon shortly after the Battle of Yavin and that the civil war still officially went on for another fifteen years after Endor and ended in a draw. In the new EU, on the other hand, the trope is present but [[DownplayedTrope downplayed.]] The rebels kicked the Empire off the moon instead and the war still carried on, but only for about a year. The loss of centralized leadership and the massive financial losses the Empire suffered, not to mention a vast increase in support for the rebellion, all did the Empire in as it succumbed to infighting. So while the act of destroying the second Death Star and killing the Emperor did not magically make the Empire vanish, it did pretty much decide the course of the war in the Rebellion's favor.

It helped that the Emperor had set the system up this way deliberately as an attempt at VetinariJobSecurity, and left orders in the wake of his death to devastate loyalist worlds out of sheer spite.

*** A less literal version with the Gungan army; they turn and flee as soon as their shield generator is destroyed. Justified, because the Trade Federation army had brought tanks to the battle, and with the shield down they could move in. And do.

They also had no reason to stay once the enemy was fully committed, since the battle was only a diversion in any case.

* The Aparoids in ''VideoGame/StarFoxAssault''. As you would expect from a race of giant alien insects, they keep multiplying as long as their queen is still alive. Luckily, they suffer from apoptosis, so killing the queen also kills them all instantly.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': By Season 7, Daenerys' court are clearly the most powerful faction on the show (with the possible exception of the White Walkers) once they are allied with the Starks to defeat the Northern threat. However, multiple characters note that if Daenerys herself (the only one capable of controlling her dragons and commanding the Dothraki) is killed, her alliance will crumble instantly. Tyrion advises against Daenerys fighting in the field for this very reason. In episode 4 of Season 7, Jaime Lannister demonstrates Daenerys' importance when he initiates a suicidal charge against her for the chance to end the war between Daenerys's faction and the Lannisters.
