* Saito single handedly takes on an entire army of swordsmen, archers, mages, dragons, and whatnot at the end of the second season of ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero''. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome He doesn't win, but he does manage to bring an army of 70,000 to a dead stop for days]], [[spoiler:[[DyingMomentOfAwesome even though it temporarily killed him]]]]. Before the second season was adapted from the novels, an [[ImageMacro image macro]] floating on the Internet depicted this using an army scene from ''VideoGame/{{Utawarerumono}}'', with the caption: "[[MemeticBadass Saito]]: Proving that one ''can'' simply [[MemeticMutation walk into Mordor]]".

* Tasuki attempts one of these in ''Manga/FushigiYuugi''. His fight with brainwashed Tamahome is already [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown rapidly going downhill]] when Nakago arrives to finish things. At this point, having already suffered a savage beating from Tamahome and barely able to stand up straight, Tasuki continues to throw himself into battle against both men, hoping to keep them preoccupied long enough for Chichiri and Miaka to get to safety. Definitely his [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome CMoA]].

* Tien does it against Semi-Perfect Cell in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' by spamming his [[CastFromHP life-draining]] Neo Tri-Beam to allow Android 18 to escape and therefore prevent the seemingly unstoppable Cell from achieving his perfect form. The attacks didn't hurt Cell (who was probably thousands of times more powerful than Tien), but they kept him pinned down, and considering that Tien had been OvershadowedByAwesome, it was both very unexpected and very [[CrowningMomentofAwesome Awesome.]] Cell was going to kill him for his interference, but Goku intervened.

* In ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', Mikasa decisively shows how much of a {{Badass}} the other humans consider her in-universe by invoking this [[spoiler:when the military surrounds her, Armin, and Eren right after his first Titan-shift]]. No one dares to advance on them with swords because she's stated to be worth [[OneManArmy one hundred regular soldiers]].

** Previous to that, Haji does his damnedest to perform a YouShallNotPass in episode 21 against the [[SecretProjectRefugeeFamily Schiff]] -- ''all'' of them. It doesn't quite work, but it's still pretty {{BadAss}}.

*** In fact, ''both'' sides were pulling this trope in that fight. Lucci's reason for fighting Luffy (aside from being a BloodKnight) was to prevent Luffy from going after Spandam and Robin to [[RescueArc rescue the latter.]] Lampshaded at the beginning of the fight, with Lucci's fairly casual line after Luffy tries to avoid the fight by simply rushing past and Lucci [[BadAss easily intercepts him and hurls him back.]]

* Subverted in ''Manga/{{Berserk}}''. When Guts and Casca are seperated from the Band of the Hawk and surrounded by 100 enemy mercs, Guts tells Casca to run and bring back help while he deals with them. Everything about this scene would suggest a heroic sacrifice, and Casca knows it, but can do nothing but try to get back with help as fast as she can. When she does arrive with the rest of the band, all they can hope for is that somehow Guts has managed to hold on, and it's a slim hope at best. And then they arrive, [[spoiler: and to their utter shock see 100 corpses on the ground, and a wounded Guts passed out against a tree.]]
