*** Lampshaded by [[GenreSavvy Varric]] in the case of fellow party member Anders, whom Varric claims has killed about 500 men, 250 women, and some huge number of giant spiders. And he's the party's resident ''[[CombatMedic healer]]''.

** Darth Malak rather {{Lampshade|Hanging}}s this in a flash of GenreSavvy. He tells to send all his troops to confront the PC, not because they'd be able to stop him/her (of course they can't), but in order to give him time to prepare his defenses.

* In the ''VideoGame/MetalSlug'' series, the {{Mooks}} will often run screaming from the player character, and [[GenreSavvy for good reason]]--they currently have three wars with the Rebellion Army, two alien invasion attempts, a ''demonic attack'', and an invasion from the center of the earth on their list of things defeated. Notice that the game plays trope literally: The player doesn't simply blast away ''Mooks'' and other infantry, but indeed, takes out dozens of tanks, combat helicopters, bombers, fighters, battle armors, ships, stationary guns, and, of course, [[HumongousMecha the bosses]]. Of course, the game being on the far side of [[SlidingScaleOfSillinessVersusSeriousness silly side]], it is all depicted in a most comical manner.

* ''VideoGame/{{Starcraft}}'':
** Sarah Kerrigan from , who as a human was only a mediocre Ghost (and being the first ''StarCraft'' game, you couldn't heal her, making it dangerous to use her in battle), as the Zerg Queen of Blades, she had great armor, huge hitpoints, a melee attack which killed most infantry in one swipe and larger units with 2 or 3, could Entangle from a distance, and could destroy groups with Psionic Storms. During her attack on the ''Amerigo'', when she's ambushed by 20 Marines, she's able to kill every one of them without dying.

** [[spoiler:Fenix]] is certainly no slouch in battle, being capable of slicing up Zerglings in a single attack. He's gotten even better in ''VideoGame/Starcraft2''. One of the abilities in [[VideoGame/LegacyOfTheVoid Legacy of the Void]] is to call him down to a location for 30 seconds to fight for you, [[LightningBruiser and that's generally all the time he'll need]].

** In ''VideoGame/{{BioShock|1}}'', Jack [[spoiler:Ryan]] fights his way through Rapture ''directly after'' surviving a plane crash, destroying at the very least four heavily armored and powerful Big Daddies [[spoiler:at the ripe old age of [[KidHero two]]. That said, he was designed that way...]]

** In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' the Grey Warden and his/her allies can accrue a very impressive kill count by the end of the game. Since the Grey Warden is required to be in the party for most of it, chances are good that he or she will rack up the lion's share of the kills. It's even lampshaded in one sidequest after you help beleaguered guardsmen kill an entire band of mercenaries and their leader notes that only an idiot would willingly attack you. One poor dwarf who tries to attack you at one point even says that you fight like an Archdemon. One templar commander especify that The Warden was very thorough cleaning up the Mage Tower of abominations (to be clear, the codex say that abominations was pretty hard to kill and took months to eliminate one). There is an achievement for killing 1000 darkspawn over multiple playthroughs. It is entirely possible to earn it in ''one'' playthrough. That does not cover everything else you kill. By the end of the game you and your small band of companions will have killed ''legions'' of enemies.

* Most {{Racing Game}}s have the players as this. Even you have supporting characters in ''VideoGame/NeedForSpeed'', alternate costumes in ''VideoGame/GranTurismo'', or many houses in ''VideoGame/TestDrive'', you still ride your vehicle as One Driver Army (or One Rider Army, perhaps).
