* Near the climax of ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'', Batman has to get past at least a dozen heavily-armed mooks to rescue [[spoiler: Martha Kent.]] He starts by exploding through the floor to get them off their feet, allowing him to pick most of them off one-by-one, but still ends up taking on four of them at once near the end. He wins anyway.

* Near the climax of ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'', Batman has to get past at least a dozen roughly 23 heavily-armed mooks to rescue [[spoiler: Martha Kent.]] He starts by exploding through the floor to get them off their feet, allowing before dropping down to fight them. They regularly try to shoot him to pick most (or use a grenade) from across the room, and attack him when he's beating one particular mook, none of them off one-by-one, but still ends up taking on which works. At one memorable point, four of them whip out knives, surround him, and attack all at once near the end.from multiple directions. He wins anyway.

* A rare example of this done by the good guys happens in the new ''MortalKombat'', as some of Earthrealm's greatest heroes attack Sindel one at a time without using their special abilities, only to be easily dispatched, many of them killed, just to prove how tough she is.

* Due to a hilarious programmer's oversight, the zombies in ''VideoGame/DeadRising2'' will patiently let you craft weapons. Let some zombies follow you into a maintenance room and craft a weapon ''just'' as they approach. During the cinematic of Chuck making the weapon the zombies will still be there, and will walk up and wait patiently behind him while he works. Their idle animation even makes it look like they're curiously trying to see what he's making.

* In "Flash and Substance" of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited'', [[RoguesGallery Captain Cold, Captain Boomerang, Mirror Master, and the Trickster]] decide that the time has finally come to kill TheFlash once and for all. To do so, they each concoct an elaborate DeathTrap which they use one at a time to try and kill the Flash. However, once Boomerang's plan fails (and the Trickster unveils his own, which involves fake dog vomit and "everything [exploding]"), [[DefiedTrope Captain Cold points out that taking turns is dumb]], [[CombatPragmatist and they decide to jump him together]], with the exception of the Trickster, who goes off in a sulk.

* Zigzagged with the battles against Star Wolf in ''VideoGame/StarFox64''. Though it seems like it would make tactical sense to work together to immediately take down at least one Arwing, everyone instead targets a specific one for some one-on-one dogfighting. However, if one of your party members is out for the fight or gets taken down, their corresponding Star Wolf member will come gunning for you whether you've dealt with Wolf already or not.

* ''Literature/TheExectioner''. Averted when Mack Bolan asks a gang if they're going to come at him one at a time or "banana style" (one big yellow bunch). They choose banana style.

* Subverted and played stright at the same time in ''VideoGame/{{Battletoads}} and Double Dragon'' for {{NES}}, where mooks will gladly gang on you but, oddly, when you are busy piledriving one of them into the ground others just stand and watch in silence.

* There was one instance in WorldWarTwo where a single German Tiger I tank in France, positioned on a narrow road in bad terrain, held up an entire division for nearly an hour and destroyed or disabled around 20 American vehicles before finally succumbing. There was just no way to get more than a couple of guns or tank in direct-fire position to hit the Tiger at a time, the Tiger's frontal armor was pretty heavy, the artillery support had lagged behind a bit, and it took awhile for the US force to find a traversable path around to the flank or rear.
