[[AC:Live-Action TV]] * ''Series/DoctorWho'': "Genesis of The Daleks" shows Skaro, the home planet of the dread pepperpots, was undergoing this because of just how long the ForeverWar on that planet had been going. Both sides had started out with nukes and chemical weapons, and by the time the Doctor and crew arrive, the soldiers are fighting with guns or even bayonets, because they're running low on bullets by that point. The Doctor speculates that if they go any further, both sides will be forced down to bows and arrows.

* In ''VideoGame/ArmoredCore'', the advent of powerful mecha - particularly the [[SuperPrototype NEXTs]] in the 4/For Answer continuity, have rendered close combat using {{LaserBlade}}s an extremely effective strategy, since such mecha are both very fast and extremely resistant to gunfire. Thus, a SwordFight between thirty-foot-high mecha moving at more than the speed of sound is not an uncommon sight on future battlefields, as a single strike from some of the more powerful {{Laser Blade}}s can be a OneHitKill.

* In ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', the military is primarily trained in [[DualWielding double swords]] and hand-to-hand combat because flintlock rifles are much less useful personnel weapons for fighting Titans, though cannons still get used in Titan defense and rifles are kept around to enforce the law and to deal with possible civil wars or uprisings.

* Autonomous air defense systems have rendered things like drones and ICBMs useless in the future of ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps3''. As such the demand for capable foot soldiers is once again on the rise and cybernetic augmentation is there to make them all the more effective, [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul albeit at a possible price]].

In their world this has indeed happened, which forced the end of technologies such as GPS and satellite imagery and wars are fought without these advantages.

* On ''Literature/{{Starfist}}'', the creation of the "Straight Arrow" AntiVehicle missile is so effective at destroying tank warfare that the only person to think of bringing it back in any major warfare capacity in the ''hundreds'' of years afterwards is the bad-guy warlord of the book ''Steel Gauntlet'' (and ''this'' forces the Marines to BreakOutTheMuseumPiece themselves-namely, the knowledge on how to produce the missiles, as well as what few working models remain(ed)). Even then, warfare remains a business done purely by infantry, with minor artillery, drone, [[DeathFromAbove orbital bombardment]] and APC support.
