* ''Film/DWar'', Buraki's armed forces, the Atrox Army which consist of many dinosaur-like dragons, easily take down the combined forces of the U.S. Army, SWAT Team and LAPD outnumbering and outmatching the American Army due to having better technology and the dragons are faster, bigger and stronger than humans.

** Though this is partly justified. Since most of the enemies fought are powerful enough to give the Captains a run for their money, if they sent a unit of any size they would get slaughtered. So, strategically, it's far better to send in the most powerful members of the military to deal with it.

* ''Film/DawnOfTheDead2004''. While it is unknown what progress the military made against the zombie apocalypse, it can be assumed that the soldiers ran out of ammo and fuel since the heroes were left to fend for themselves against ''thousands'' of zombies.
* ''Film/WarOfTheWorlds''. Despite the movie's name, it's not much of a war as it is an invasion and given how powerful the Martians are, fighting them is a stupid idea. The U.S. military score zero hits on the Tripods, who are well shielded by an energy barrier that can deflect all man-made missiles and bullets. The U.S. soldiers are more of an obstacle than assistance for the film's protagonists, as they block Ray and his children's path to the boat. In the end, it turns out the best military mankind had against the Tripods were [[spoiler: the earth's bacteria]].

* ''Film/DawnOfTheDead2004''. While it is unknown to what extent the military achieved against the zombie apocalypse, it can be assumed that the soldiers ran out of ammo and the zombies ate them up since the heroes find their city densely populated with zombies and no armed resistance remaining.
