* At the end of ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'', after the Incredibles have defeated the Omnidroid, his plan to be the world's greatest hero is ruined, and he's lost all his resources, Syndrome decides to invade the Incredibles' home and kidnap Jack Jack.

* In the climax of ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesIITheSecretOfTheOoze'', the Shredder, defeated and humiliated for the second time, drinks the last vial of mutagen, mutating himself into what Donatello calls a "Super-Shredder", an ogre-sized monster blinded by rage. Determined to crush his foes [[TakingYouWithMe even if he goes with them]] he tears the entire pier they're under apart until it collapses; fortunately, the Turtles are able to bail out and survive, [[spoiler:and while it looks like the Shredder might make it out too at the end, he does not.]]

A Last Villain Stand is where the villain has lost his army (if he had one), his plan has been ruined, and he decides to fight the heroes on his own. Usually he uses AppliedPhlebotinum or a PlotCoupon to take on a OneWingedAngel form and becomes more powerful than ever before.

* In ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', it becomes clear that Loki's entire plan is this to some extent; he already lost Asgard, the kingdom he actually wanted, in ''Film/{{Thor}}'', and so he tries to take the Earth instead, mainly to spite his brother. Before and during the final battle, [[Film/IronMan Tony Stark]] explains at some length that "there is no version of this where you come out on top", Thor incredulously asks "You think this madness will end with your rule!?" and Loki doesn't actually refute what they say. On the contrary, there are several points throughout the film where it's made very clear that he sees no other option but to keep going, and the audience knows that he is being threatened with a FateWorseThanDeath if he fails to deliver the Tesseract to [[spoiler: [[BiggerBad his mysterious benefactor, Thanos]].]] Essentially, he knows that he'll almost certainly fail, but his pride won't let him surrender without trying every trick he can think of and it takes [[spoiler: [[CurbStompBattle a hilariously one-sided confrontation]] with TheIncredibleHulk]] to convince him that he really can't win.

** In ''Series/PowerRangersSPD'', Emperor Gruumm ultimately takes a last stand as well. [[spoiler:After his army is destroyed and [[BiggerBad Omni]] has fallen, Gruumm erupts from the rubble of Omni's mechnical body and challenges his nemesis Doggie Cruger to one last battle. When Doggie wins, Gruumm orders him to end it, but Doggie refuses, instead cutting his other horn off and arresting him.]]

* Interestingly, ''Film/LordOfTheRings'' ''starts'' with one, when, in the backstory, Sauron steps forward to oppose the Alliance army, after his orcs have seemingly all been vanquished. As covered by the second variety of the trope, he's [[OneManArmy quite]] capable of opposing them.
