* Averted in the ''WesternAnimation/SWATKatsTheRadicalSquadron'' episode "When Strikes Mutilor." When the SWAT Kats storm the control room of Mutilor's ship, Mutilor, a CombatPragmatist, orders ''all'' of his guards to attack them, and they end up dogpiling ([[IncrediblyLamePun katpiling?]]) the SWAT Kats and defeating them rather easily.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''[[Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret Of The Ooze]]'', the Foot bide their time in the background, standing, waiting, and even dancing.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/KungFury'', the crowd of Nazi soldiers politely wait in the background while the soldiers in the foreground attack a few at a time, without making full use of firearms.

* Lampshaded in the ''Manga/{{Vagabond}}'' manga's two-volume fight between MiyamotoMusashi and the Yoshioka school, where he intends to get this trope ("instead of [[spoiler:seventy]] against one, it should be one against one, [[spoiler:seventy]] times"), while the leadership of the Yoshioka try to avert it (Ueda Ryohei, Fujiie, and Nanpo Yoichibe all having lines specifically encouraging mobbing). As a whole though the Yoshioka are not able to follow through due to a mix of Musashi's sheer skill (he ''usually'' manages to avoid getting mobbed by mentally "flowing" between enemies), physical advantage (his strength and physical toughness protecting him from being incapacitated by the few hits that manage to sneak through), and their own mentality being too used to this.

* The 21st-century ''AceCombat'' games (''04'', ''5'', ''Zero'', ''X'', and ''6'') seem to avert this; it's not uncommon to be chased by an entire five-plane group at once in ''04'' or having to dodge three or four missiles for every plane you down.

* In ''VideoGame/KickBeat'', the yellow- and blue-costumed enemies will attack you one at a time (the blue ones come at you in rapid succession), and the red ones (the only type to disobey this rule) never attack in groups larger than two or three.

* In ''VideoGame/KickBeat'', the yellow- and blue-costumed enemies will attack you one at a time (the blue ones come at you in rapid succession), and the red ones (the only type to disobey this rule) never attack in groups larger than two or three. In-universe, it's unclear if this is actually enforced on attackers by your style of SupernaturalMartialArts or if it causes a perceptual shift letting you fight as if the action was choreographed to music.



* The Apple II game ''VideoGame/{{Karateka}}'' is one of the first video game examples, though only one opponent is ever seen at a time. The [[VideoGameRemake 2012 remake]] carries on this tradition, even though, unlike the original, you sometimes meet more than one opponent before one of them attacks. (You can only fight the one who is attacking; the other guys must wait their turn.)

* The Apple II game ''VideoGame/{{Karateka}}'' is one of the first video game examples, though only one opponent is ever seen at a time. An addition here to "chivalry": if before engaging you stand out of your combat stance and bow, they ''will'' reciprocate, and in fact will match you if you bow again. The [[VideoGameRemake 2012 remake]] carries on this tradition, even though, unlike the original, you sometimes meet more than one opponent before one of them attacks.

* During ''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld'', Lucas Lee's clones follow stunt team has absolutely no problem attacking Scott from multiple directions at once or sneaking up on him. But [[RuleOfPerception they mostly come from angles the code to camera can see, or just offscreen after the letter.camera sees them]]. Because they're stunt doubles, and this is a movie.

* In ''Comicbook/BatmanEndgame'', the BrainwashedAndCrazy Comicbook/JusticeLeague attack Comicbook/{{Batman}} one at a time, allowing him to use his [[PoweredArmor Justice Buster suit]] to take them out one by one, rather than fight him as a team. It's possibly justified since they've been infected with [[Comicbook/TheJoker Joker]] Venom, turning them into [[AxCrazy raving homocidal maniacs]], most likely incapable of working as a team.

Added DiffLines:

* Subverted by an issue of ''ComicBook/IronMan'' that featured Shellhead being attacked by more than a dozen supervillains at once. One of the main reasons Iron Man won was because the villains got in each other's way and Iron Man was able to turn them against each other.
