* Parodied in the BingCrosby / BobHope film ''[[Film/RoadTo Road to Rio]]'': while the two heroes are busy tangling the villainess and her two henchmen, an ally (Jerry Colonna) and a bunch of reinforcements ride furiously toward the heroes' location. But then suddenly, the heroes have won and the villains are hauled off to jail without The Cavalry ever arriving. Colonna reins in his horse mid-gallop and cheerfully comments to the camera: "Well, we [[TheCavalryArrivesLate never made it]]. But exciting, wasn't it!"

* The climax of ''Film/BedknobsAndBroomsticks'' features this, this. Nazi forces have invaded England and seen taken over the countryside, so apprentice witch Eglantine Pryce decides to use the powerful "Substitutiary Locomotion" spell (which she's hunted for the whole film), which can [[AnimateInanimateObject bring inanimate objects to life]], to fight back. How does she do this? By going to a museum and casting the spell in a room full of regalia from the wars of English history. Cue the Nazis freaking out as the armor, weapons, and gear of ''every single English battle ever'' come marching out of the museum, ready to fight for "England and St. George" once again, as Eglantine commands them from her flying broom. Watch it in all its glory [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z0rRPU_cvGg here]].

*** Then there was the time Colonel Makepeace lead four SG teams to rescue [=SG-1=] from Hathor. It did not go so smoothly and they had to be rescued by MORE calvary, this time in the form of some rebel Jaffa, with air support provided by Bra'tac and General Hammond in a needle threader.

* Done rather clumsily, but nevertheless played straight in ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}: The Legend Reborn'' -- a gigantic army composed of Agori, Glatorian and battle chariots appears to help Mata Nui fight the Rock Tribe and the Bone Hunters... but you only see the main characters duking it out in the ensuing battle, and the army just ''disappears'' for the rest of the scene.
