* 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.

** In "Doors and Corners", the OPA launches an attack on the ring station that TheConspiracy is using as a research base, protected by another stealth ship and a hull mounted artillery gun. It takes some significant maneuvering, but the ''Rocinante'' is eventually able to disable both the ship and the gun, enabling a BoardingPod to land on the station and take control of it.

* In Literature/ASymphonyofEternity space battles are a main focus of the series, with fleets that number in the tens of thousands each set in a universe where magic instead of technology is what is used in war. No wonder since it was inspired by Anime/LegendofGalacticHeroes

** StarcraftII plays it much strighter withe the "With Friends Like These..." mission, which takes place entirely in space and featuring massive battles, point-blank dogfights, and vast swarms of missiles and lasers all over the place. And is itself based on a popular custom map called "Star Battle", which is a {{MOBA}}... you guessed it, InSpace.

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.
