While the "village" can be some other form of small civilian community (a block in a city, for example), it must still be small and civilian. Military outposts do NOT count, and neither do entire cities or full sized countries. So, no, ''[[ThreeHundred 300]]'' is not an example.

* The small mining town of Grantville is somehow transported back in time from the year 2000 to ''Literature/SixteenThirtyTwo''. The civilian population is able to withstand multiple attacks from the surrounding 17th century states since the "Uptimers" have access to modern weapons and technology. As the series progresses, this trope no really longer applies, as they start to expand beyond their original borders.

* ''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 they are completely incapable of making the Corsicans do anything (be it accept a Roman registration of the house, or just load some boxes onto a ship).

Corsica is only nominally under Roman rule: yes, there are Romans there, but they are completely incapable of making the Corsicans do anything (be it accept a Roman registration of the house, or just load some boxes onto a ship). This is quite {{Ironic}}, as the earliest known example of this trope was a ''Roman'' city assaulted by a mostly ''Gaulish'' force (see Real Life below).


Added DiffLines:

* The Italian city of Cremona ''started out'' as one: founded by the Romans as a ''colonia'' (a town in recently conquered territory, with a large civilian population to show the benefits of Roman civilization and a garrison for protection) in Gaul-inhabitated northern Italy shortly before the [[UsefulNotes/PunicWars Second Punic War]], the arrival of Hannibal and his army caused a general revolt of the local populations, leaving Cremona cut off and [[TheSiege besieged]] for years until the Romans turned the tide. Her twin ''colonia'' of Placentia barely missed qualifying, as the Hannibal-aligned Gauls ultimately managed to burn it down-after ''eighteen years''.

Added DiffLines:

* Seeking the supersoldier Frank Simpson, [[ComicBook/UltimateMarvel Ultimate Captain America]] seeks the hidden village of Saloth, in Vietnam. He finds it, but there are no adult men: just children, women and elders. One of those elders told cap that he's not the first big and strong guy who shows up giving orders, but that they defeated all the previous ones and used them to feed the pigs. Cap ignored him as a senile folk... and then discovers the secret: the children, women and elders are '''all''' super soldiers.

* 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.
