* In ''Series/TheExpanse'', a Martian warship ends up engaged in a battle with five smaller stealth ships. They start by exchanging torpedo shots, with the Martian ship's [[PointDefenseless point-defense]] guns shooting down most of the enemy torpedoes, while its own manage to take out one of the attackers. As the remaining attackers get close, torpedoes are abandoned, since the targets are too close for a good lock. The Martians switch to railguns, only to find out, to their dismay, that the mysterious attackers have managed to fit railguns on those small hulls as well. Eventually, the Martian ship is boarded, and the Captain and her first officer initiate self-destruct to keep the ship out of enemy hands.

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. ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' for example required creative use of CGI and minitures to portray and do epic battles described in the books justice.

* 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.
