* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' has been known to be this. A classic example occurs just after the fall of [[TheCaligula Cal]]. Newly installed Chief Judge Griffin wants to send in a fifty man squad to clear out a sector that has been taken over by a gang known as the Cosmic Punks. Dredd notes that this is giving them too much credit and elects to go in [[OneRiotOneRanger alone]] with nothing more than his Lawgiver and a garbage truck. Anyone who survives the encounter ends up in the back of the truck and exiled into the Cursed Earth for ten years.

** In ''Comicbook/TheSupergirlFromKrypton'', an army of Darkseid kamikaze parademons attempts to kill Superman. An angry, almost berserk Superman who intends to rescue his cousin. Superman ignores them and strides onward as they blow up around him.

* ComicBook/DonaldDuck:
** In stories set in the middle ages he fought off entire armies [[MasterSwordsman with his superior ability with a sword]] backed by ''enormous'' strength.
** Stories set in the present usually tone it down, but make clear that a pissed Donald can fight off multiple opponents with ease. Then came "Donald Duck and Reginella's Wedding", where he faced an entire army equipped with middle-ages weapon and not only ''routed it'' with only a double-barreled shotgun, plenty of rock salt rounds and a boombox playing a ''horrible'' song, but then forced them to melt their weapons and turn them into agricoltural tools or else he'd "ruin everything healthy you still have".
** ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'' sees him regularly facing dozens of Evronians and come out on top. Bear in mind, Evronians have been seen to fight the US Army outnumbered and ''win''.

* {{Franchise/Batman}}. Whether it's dozens of FacelessGoons or merely half the Legion of Doom, you can bet that he'll get through them (without killing them, of course; this is Batman). This can often be drawn up to him being CrazyPrepared (you can totally see Bruce just sitting around going like "Okay, if a PresidentEvil took over and I was surrounded by the Green Berets, how'd I get through them all?"), but he can [[IndyPloy do it on the fly, too]].

** Superman's powerset lets him take on large numbers of enemies, whether they are the mooks of a mob boss or alien armies.
** In ''Comicbook/KryptonNoMore'', Superman, Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} and their ''[[Comicbook/KryptoTheSuperdog dog]]'' defeat a whole alien army.
* Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}:
** The eponymous heroine is a nigh-invulnerable FlyingBrick who has been known to wipe whole armies.
** This is especially true from her pre-Crisis counterpart, who was virtually a PhysicalGod. She broke down Warworld -a planet-sized machine war- by ''ramming'' through it.
** In ''Comicbook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' she nearly single-handedly defeats a whole alien genocidal army.

** He's outdone by the second [[ComicBook/Batgirl2000 Batgirl]], who can level a room full of {{Mooks}} so fast that the government was convinced she had SuperSpeed. Whether she actually does is up in the air (genetic tests show no metagene, but mystical abilities haven't been ruled out), but she is considered to be the best hand-to-hand fighter on the planet, and once defeated the Brotherhood of Evil singlehandedly.

* ComicBook/GrooTheWanderer would be one of these, if it weren't for his stupidity. He has an unfortunate tendency to forget which side he's on in the middle of a battle--to the point where he has found himself the only living person left on the field, having single-handedly most of both armies involved.

He has an unfortunate tendency to forget which side he's on (If he was on a given side in the first place - there have been occasions where he's charged into battles he had nothing to do with and killed anyone who crossed his path simply because it was a fray and he felt like joining in) in the middle of a battle--to the point where he has found himself the only living person left on the field, having single-handedly killed most of both armies involved.

* Obelix in ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'' is a prime example of this, on more than one occasion taking on entire Roman armies single-handed, for fun. Any of the Gauls are capable of this when tanked up on magic potion, though.
