* TheMadScientistWars had one of these in Chapter 11, as a threefold plan. Group One pretended to join over, offering someone as a fake bribe, Group Two sneaked in and sabotaged security, and Group Three just charged the gates and blew things the hell up. At least, that was the idea-- Group One failed, though the other two more or less succeeded. Then, the chapter's BigBad, an evil robotic arm, used his master stroke, and everything went to hell.
* ''AssociatedSpace'' has several variations on this trope, from Fatebane sneaking into the Executive Mansion to give a [[MacGuffin mysterious box]] to the President, to Fatebane rescuing David [[RunawayBride from his own wedding]], to [[spoiler: Fatebane and Nazar rescuing David from his mother's mansion]].
* On the ninth day of ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' version four, [[spoiler:STAR launches an assault on the terrorist HQ and the island, causing a lot of damage and rescuing many of the students]]. This eventually comes to a head when [[spoiler:[[BigBad Danya]] is shot by [[TheDogBitesBack Dorian Pello, one of his own men]], [[HeelFaceTurn who then escapes with STAR]]]].
* ''LegionOfNetHeroes'': At the end of a lengthy story arc in which Decibel Dude is framed for the murder of his girlfriend and on the run from everyone, including his partner, he manages to prove that he's innocent and that the murder was faked by his arch-enemy. He announces to the Legion that he's heading off to the villain's headquarters to free his girlfriend and arrest the bad guy, and walks away without looking back. When he gets to the headquarters, he finally turns around to discover the entire Legion is behind him, with his partner in the lead.

* The episode "To The Gates" from the third season of ''Series/{{Vikings}}'' may have one of the most epic examples in television history. For a half hour the Norse attempt to storm Paris by attacking at multiple points complete with appropriate siege engines while the Franks and their defenses do everything to throw them back. [[spoiler:RealityEnsues and the Norse are beaten back entirely, with heavy losses. In fact, some of the Norse RedShirts realized early on what was inevitably going to happen, and all their leaders were simply [[PrideBeforeAFall too proud]], [[TheFundamentalist too zealous]], [[GloryHound too hungry for glory]], or [[WeAREStrugglingTogether too petty]] to admit it. It takes several attempts at treachery and a much more elaborate ruse being the Norse do loot the city.]]

* ''ComicBook/BlackMoonChronicles'': Castle and city sieges usually amount to thousands of soldiers storming the gates and killing anything in sight. Having sorcerers, dragons, giants and other huge war beasts helps a lot.
