* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel'', the Provincial Armies see doing anything that would justify their employers (The four most powerful non-royal nobles in Erebonia) ''having'' a private army (including tanks) as beneath them, instead focusing on helping their masters maintain their political power [[spoiler:(something they do to the point of outright treason)]]. The few times they're seen even attempting to resolve issues in the first game, they [[spoiler:deliberately]] make things worse. The Imperial Army doesn't look much better in the first game, with the entire 1st Armored Division getting wiped out by a surprise attack, only for a scratch defense force of nine army cadets, half a dozen academy instructors, and a '''maid''' to do a better job of slowing down the force that wiped them out less than an hour later. In the second game, once the surprise of the sudden rebellion wears off and the surviving units get a feel for what the enemy's new weapons systems are capable of, the Imperial Army looks much more competent.

* ''Film/TrainToBusan''. South Korea plunges into a zombie apocalypse that gets so bad, given that the country is highly densely populated, that half to most of the ROK Armed Forces have become zombies themselves off-screen. The remainder of the ROK Armed Forces who survived successfully secured Busan, but they give up protecting the rest of the country altogether and urge all citizens to come to them instead rather than vice versa, which they tried but that's supposedly how the rest of the ROK army got infected in the first place.

* ''Film/TrainToBusan''. South Korea plunges into a zombie apocalypse that gets so bad, given that the country is highly densely populated, that in just under one day the whole country is overrun, and surveillance shows that just about anyone not taking the movie's titular train is doomed. Martial law is declared, but in only a few hours, half to most of the ROK Armed Forces have become zombies themselves off-screen. The remainder of the ROK Armed Forces who survived successfully secured Busan, but they give up protecting the rest of the country altogether and urge send messages through radio for all citizens to come to them instead rather than vice versa, which they tried but that's supposedly how the rest of the ROK army got infected in the first place.
