* In the ''VideoGame/{{Shantae}}'' series, Scuttle Town has proven impossible to pillage for Risky Boots, since it's protected by the title half-genie. Naturally, the town immediately gets imperiled any time Shantae is on exile or held up elsewhere.

* ''Felarya'' has Safe Harbor, which has weathered a series of attacks by man-eating predators, hostile humans, and other ills. It owes its continued survival to Jade, a [[BadAss badass]] giantess who [[CurbStompBattle absolutely destroys]] anything that threatens it.

->''The year is 50 B.C. Gaul is entirely occupied by the Romans. Well, not entirely... One small village of indomitable Gauls still holds out against the invaders. And life is not easy for the Roman legionaries who garrison the fortified camps of Totorum, Aquarium, Laudanum and Compendium . . .''

* The village of Felton tries to be this in the AlternateHistoryDotCom timeline "Protect and Survive: A Timeline". It fails. [[spoiler: Choose the fucking cowboys. Especially when they've got a fucking tank.]]

* Although ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'' comics are one of the best-known examples of this trope, the video game adaptation for PlayStation strays away from this by having the player take back the Gaulish territories.

* At the beginning of ''ShadowHearts Covenant'', the village of Donremy, France fits this, because Yuri is there. Once Yuri is cursed and has to leave, it falls to the German advance.

* ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'' is the TropeNamer. The Gaulish village is not the only case: there are similar undefeatable little villages in Britain and Spain (which is [[GenreSavvy lampshaded]] by Caesar, who is sure he had seen something like that somewhere else). Corsica is only nominally under Roman rule: yes, there are Romans there, but are completely incapable of making the Corsicans do anything (be it accept a Roman registration of the house, or just load some boxes to a ship).
* From a cosmic perspective, planet Earth may be counted as this in the MarvelUniverse. A tiny planet which has not even colonized its moon, but has resisted time and again against the Kree Empire, the Skrull Empire, the Shi'Ar Empire, Ego, the Phoenix force, the Celestials... and even drove Galactus away, and even humbled him near to death.

* The tiny Korean village of Sinanju is this in the ''{{Destroyer}}'' novels, despite being a dreary, squalid little place, full of dull, lazy, not-so-bright people. Being the home of the world's most dangerous line of Assassins counts for a ''lot''.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]

* This trope ended up undermining the ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' "Storm of Chaos" campaign event back during the game's 6th edition. Creator/GamesWorkshop billed it as a chance for players' battles to have an impact on the story of the largest Chaos invasion in history, when the dread hordes of Archaon the Everchosen would attempt to crush the Empire once and for all, with the Siege of Middenheim serving as the grand climax. The problem was that the results indicated that Archaon's forces couldn't take even the first insignificant border hamlet on the campaign map. So when the first narrative update came along and declared that said village had been effortlessly flattened, some players got a bit annoyed that their battles didn't count, which probably contributed to the whole event being rendered non-canon by subsequent material.
