* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyType0'', Imperial Marshall Cid Aulstyne says as he demands Rubrum surrender their Vermillion Bird Crystal:
-->'''Cid Aulstyne''': Your Crystal cannot protect you. Resistance is no longer an option. You have six hours. You must comply with our demands, or face the full might of our forces - in which case, I promise you, the roads of Rubrum will run red with the blood of her people.

* Rampage gives a variation of this in the episode of ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' that introduces him, but Silverbolt has a snappy comeback.
-->'''Rampage:''' Your persistence is futile! I rise again...!\\
'''Silverbolt:''' In that case, let us give you further to fall!
* ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'' has Emperor Milleus delivering the line when he invades Earth:
-->"Resistance is futile; but encouraged for it amuses me."
* ''WesternAnimation/BountyHamster''. Cassie and Marion are being chased by a couple of psychotic space slugs with this as their CatchPhrase. Or maybe not both of them -- at one point one slug turns to the other and asks, "What is ''my'' line?"
* Said by the boss bad guy in ''WesternAnimation/ChallengeOfTheGoBots'' after his invasion force had landed on an alien world: "Resistance isn't only futile, it's stupid!"
* [[AIIsACrapshoot Brainiac]] in the Franchise/DCAnimatedUniverse was fond of "You are only delaying the inevitable." It was practically his catchphrase.
