** In the latest story arcs of Macross, humanity has assumed the trope. The alien antagonists don't challenge the entire UN Spacey: just isolated migrant fleets escorted by several warships. In TheMovie version of ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'', when the Vajra faced a ''real'' human military fleet, they fled the battlefield to avoid WaveMotionCannon annihilation.

* Early in ''Manga/{{Toriko}}'', the titular character has to get past a pack of Troll Kongs- giant, four-armed, ''monster apes.'' The first one Toriko encounters is just a scout, and while its no match for our hero, it barfs on Toriko, leaving our hero smelling like the much weaker, ''far less dangerous'' Troll Kong. Which means Toriko can't intimidate the rest of the pack.

* ''[[VideoGame/{{X}} X-Universe]]'': In the backstory, the incredibly advanced Ancient Ones fought a titanic war against beings known as the Outsiders, who are thought to come from another universe and who appeared in massive, solar system-sized constructs that began altering physics around them and eating up resources like nothing ever seen. The Ancient Ones managed to barely destroy ''one'' of these things, which prompted the rest to retreat. The Ancient Ones theorize that those massive things were Outsider scout ships, possibly even non-military in nature. They're not sure why the Outsiders backed off, and are concerned should they ever make another appearance.
