* At one point the main man Lobo died. Luckily, he can regenerate from a single drop of blood. Unluckily, there were several thousand drops of blood splattered across a battlefield. So, several thousand Lobos found themselves in one place -- and what followed was a awesome and horrifying deathmatch, until only one Lobo remained.
** The funny thing about this was that Lobo ''always'' had this power -- Vril Dox, Brainiac 2, suppressed it. It wasn't until Lobo was forcibly regressed to a teen that it came back.

* In the (not nearly as awesome as it sounds) film ''Film/TheClonesOfBruceLee'', a MadScientist gets some DNA from the recently deceased BruceLee and makes some clones. Eventually he plans to TakeOverTheWorld. But for some reason his method of doing so involves only creating three Bruces, and then having them fight to the death because he only wants the best one.

* Also spoofed in the ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' parody comic ''[[http://piratemonkeysinc.com/ms1.htm House Sparklypoo]]''. The members of the titular house discover to their horror that they're losing their [[MarySue specialness]]. Their teacher suggests that it's because each of them is supposed to be the best, but obviously only one person can be the best at anything. Cue massive throwdown as the Sparklypoos try to kill one another in order to regain their special powers, culminating in the destruction of Sparklypoo Tower by an errant [[TheSlayers Dragon Slave]].

* Blanca's Wolf Bout {{Sidequest}} in ''ShadowHearts: Covenant'' is based around fighting the other wolves in the world to prove his strength. The last battle [[spoiler:is against Ernest, the man who told you about the tournament to begin with. He reveals that he was a hunter who wanted to isolate the strongest wolf in the world to test himself again. And he fights you in a fursuit. ]] Victory earns you Blanca's special moves and ultimately his InfinityPlusOneSword.
