* Played for laughs in ''Series/RedDwarf'' in the episode "Stoke Me a Clipper", [[spoiler:Ace Rimmer single-handedly wins a two-front skirmish in World War 2. He drops a Luftwaffe plane and kills its crew, wrestles an alligator, picks off a squad of soldiers with nothing but a small blaster on his way down and ultimately leaves only one soldier standing. Oh, and he still finds time to surf on the gator and rescue a princess. Even the last soldier has to remark, "what a guy".]]

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': During "Battle of the Bastards", Jon charges by himself against the Bolton cavalry and racks up an impressive body count during the fight. Not even Barristan Selmy in his last stand against the Sons of the Harpy was able to take down as many of his enemies as Jon did.

* "Series/Daredevil":
** Matt Murdock, AKA Daredevil is definitely one of these. In the second episode "Cut Man", Murdock, after being badly injured, attacks nine Russian gangsters holding a boy hostage. Everyone of them gets knocked out and Murdock still has enough energy to carry the boy home. He then tops this feat in Season Two, Episode Three "New York's Finest" where, after a beating from the Punisher, Matt knocks him out, and then proceeds to demolish no less than a dozen members biker gang, the same one that Lorelei possessed.
** Frank Castle AKA The Punisher, is one of these as well. He takes out entire gangs on his own, in single encounters. Even when captured by the Kitchen Irish and tortured for hours, he still manages to kill a few members before being saved by Daredevil. EVEN, when is sent to prison where he has no weapons what-so-ever, he takes on ten other inmates sent to kill him, and kills nearly all of them, knocking out the rest. At the end of it all, he is covered in the blood of his victims.

* ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' features this often with the [[MonsterOfTheWeek monsters]], [[BigBad villains]], and particularly [[SixthRanger Sixth Rangers]]; each of them has enough power to be called equal or close to the other five combined.

[[BigGood Zordon]] was no slouch himself when still humanoid, as the episode "Power Ranger Punks" shows via {{flashback}}.

** Carol is a PragmaticHero MagnificentBitch who took an [[UpToEleven immense]] [[TookALevelInBadass level in badass]] between the second and third season. To date, she's managed to successfully [[ImAHumanitarian infiltrate Terminus]], [[BigDamnHeroes rescue her friends,]] [[StuffBlowingUp blow it up,]] [[MadeOfIron survive being hit by a car]], lull enemies into a false sense of security, slaughter the majority of wolves invading Alexandria, and slaughter a sufficient number of Saviours (a feat nobody else has managed to accomplish except for Daryl). All this from a woman who used to be an ExtremeDoormat, StayInTheKitchen punching bag for her abusive husband.

* Lucas Hood, the main character of ''Series/{{Banshee}}''. He will tear apart MMA fighters, prison tough guys, and entire gangs. He can take a serious amount of punishment, and dole out even more. Especially notable seeing as he's a fairly average sized guy, and in most cases the only intimidating thing about him is the fact that he's crazy enough to challenge his opponents. There is even an entire episode called One Man Army devoted to fully exploring this part of his character, the emotional strain it places on him, and the distance it makes him feel from others.

Also notable for the fact that he gets severely beaten and brutalised while attacking others, unlike more seemingly invulnerable One-Man Army’s. Part of his prestige comes from the sheer determination he has to keep going while covered in his own blood.

* Being based on the ''SwordOfTruth'' books, ''Series/LegendOfTheSeeker'' has Richard (AKA [[ChosenOne the Seeker]]) being able to defeat an army with the Sword of Truth. Unfortunately, due to budget constrains, we only ever see him engaging a few soldiers at a time. Zedd could also count, being the last Wizard of the First Order.
