This trope has extended into fantasy or historical movies as well as they have become more popular, this is because use several of the same methods and cliches to bring about the same effect. TheLordOfTheRings for example required creative use of CGI and minitures to portray and do epic battles described in the books justice.

* ''Starworld'' by Creator/HarryHarrison has the rebel admiral screening a space battle scene from an old movie, then pointing out how unrealistic it is. He then goes on to demonstrate that KineticWeaponsAreJustBetter.

* There are two battles in ''ComicBook/{{Pouvoirpoint}}'': The first one is lived from inside the [[WaveMotionGun vibro-cannons room]] of ''Entreprise-2061'', during the ambush by a [[BlobMonster Proximian]] swarm from outer space. The second one is seen from outside the ship, when it gets attacked by a [[SpaceFighter coastguard ship]].

* Creator/MikhailAkhmanov's ''[[Literature/ArrivalsFromTheDark Invasion]]'' starts with the world leaders watching the recording of the battle between Admiral Timokhin's battlegroup (constituting 1/6 of the total strength of Earth's SpaceNavy) and a single [[HumanAlien Faata]] starship. Timokhin's ships launch scores of fighters and a nuclear MacrossMissileMassacre with a combined strength of 400 gigaton. The alien starship launches [[AntiMatter annihilator]]-armed combat modules that make mincemeat out of the entire battlegroup, while the starship's own DeflectorShields shrug off the nuclear barrage without even a StarTrekShake for the crew. Naturally, the Faata sent the recording to intimidate the human leaders. The story then rewinds to explain how we got to this point. More space battles take place in later novels of the series, although the novels rarely focus on them.

* ''ComicBook/{{Shakara}}'': On many occasions Shakara will take on entire enemy space fleets with nothing but his (very advanced) sturdy little ship. Sometimes he got more creative: he destroyed one fleet by trapping it in range of a supernova, another by plunging them into a black hole, and another by ''turning a whole planet into giant rocket and blasting his way through''.
