* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'':
** Keese sometimes come in big groups. They will, however, fly away if Link kills a few of them.
** Small swarms of bees attack anything nearby if their hive is destroyed. They're fairly slow and weak, though, and weapons can be used to discombobulate them.

* Shino Aburame from ''Series/{{Naruto}}'' is an example similar to the Lutecia one above. His (and most, if not all of his clan's for that matter) abilities consist of manipulating a swarm of chakra-eating parasitic insects that he houses within his own body. Needless to say, it's never pretty when they find their next meal.

* In ''Comicbook/KryptoniteNevermore'', Franchise/{{Superman}} has to save Comicbook/LoisLane and several persons from a horde of ants. This would usually not be a problem, but he is gradually getting weaker and he cannot come near from the group because he is afraid of infecting Lois with some strange illness.

* in TheBible, the Literature/BookOfRevelation forecasts a mighty swarm of locust-like creatures in the Last Days, who will herald not only famine but also searing agony to anyone they bite and transmit their venom to. And nothing except the merciful word of the Lord will be able to stop them.
* All-consuming locusts were also one of the plagues sent by G-d upon Egypt, to persuade an intractable Pharoah to Let My People Go.

* In ''VideoGame/GearsOfWar'', Kryll are swarming bat-like creatures which come out at night and devour any living creature dumb enough to step out of a [[WeakenedByTheLight well-lit area]]. The Locust Horde, despite their name, are ''not'' this, as they are human-sized or bigger (although General RAAM has the power to control Kryll and uses them in battle). Their replacements in ''Gears of War 4'' are literally called "The Swarm", but they also do not apply.
