* The Fifth Edition ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' rulebook included suggestions for a 'Seven Knights' scenario, in which one player took seven {{Hero Unit}}s against an entire army on the other side. ** In that edition of the game this amounted to a ''ridiculously'' easy win for the heroes unless the other player got lucky with the artillery. ** The Scenario was revived in Sixth Edition in a much harder version TWICE. Once for the [[TheWarToEndAllWars Storm of Chaos]] called Seven Sigmarites which is so unbalanced against the seven (due in great part to the relative weakness of the Empire army book's heroes at the time since the Empire was mainly a gunline army) your goal isn't to win, [[DoNotGoGentle just to kill enough of the oncoming horde]]. The second scenario features a group of [[Film/AguirreTheWrathOfGod European knights lost deep in the jungle raiding native tombs who are systematically attacked and slain by native defenders]] for the Lustria setting. It's slightly easier due to the plethora of random stuff available to the heroes (they have been grave robbing) and due to the Rules for Lustria making single characters in a jungle much harder to find and kill.

* ''Series/KamenRiderHibiki'' used this for its NonSerialMovie, ''Kamen Rider Hibiki & The Seven War Oni''. Though only loosely and even with a few twists.

The film in question is called ''Seven'' not ''Se7en''. Linking it to the other film is just confusing.
* In the 1979 movie ''Film/{{Se7en}}'' (not be confused with the [[Film/{{Se7en}} 1995 serial killer movie]]), seven hitmen are hired to kill seven mob bosses who planning a criminal takeover of Hawaii.

Seemed like a lot of shoehorning going on there.
** There are some all-out NPC battles in Dragon Age, and the NPC character types still (partially) fit. Alistair is, arguably, TheHero who makes the HeroicSacrifice [[spoiler: either by giving his life to kill the archedemon, or giving up his freedom to become king]], The Lancer is TokenEvilTeammate Morrigan, Sten is TheStoic and thus, also, TheQuietOne who is also a JerkWithAHeartOfGold, Zevran is the (semi) ReluctantWarrior and LovableTraitor who joins you after you defeat his band of assasin {{Tricksters}}, Wynne is TheObiWan, Leliana is NaiveNewcomer [[spoiler: so she says]] who likes to PetTheDog, and Oghren is the BoisterousBruiser PluckyComicRelief. Shale shares the DeadpanSnarker with Morrigan, TheBigGuy with Sten, and proves to be a very sardonic PluckyComicRelief alternative to Oghren. ** Bioware likes this trope so much that they built the party members of ''Franchise/MassEffect'' after it. Shepard is TheHero and TheLeader. Kaiden is the Lancer. Ashley is the big guy. Liara is the smart guy. Wrex is the Old Guy (he is a couple hundred years old). Tali is the young guy. Garrus is... whatever's left. *** If you see Tali and Liara as both being Smart Guys in different fields, then Garrus could be the Young Guy. Shepard becomes his mentor, after all, and his character development reflects what he picks up from your own behavior as a Paragon or Renegade. *** The bulk of ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' is basically assembling an entire 10-person team (12 with the {{DLC}}) ''Magnificent Seven''-style, with the added wrinkle of getting said team loyal to you and upgrading your ship and weapons before the main mission of going through the Omega-4 Relay. Though it ''is'' possible for people to die during the Suicide Mission, your primary goal is to take out the Collector base and bring everyone back alive.

* ''Film/BattleBeyondTheStars'' is ''Film/TheMagnificentSeven'' InSPACE. In fact Robert Vaughn played essentially the same character that he did in ''Film/TheMagnificentSeven'' -- and even got to recycle some of his dialogue from the earlier movie! The Spanish dub was even titled ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The Magnificent Seven In Space]]''
