** Don't forget [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=373708 Hundred-Handed One]], yet another white example.
-->As long as Hundred-Handed One is [[SuperMode monstrous]], it has reach and can block an additional ninety-nine creatures each combat.

** [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Taunt Taunt]] allows the player to declare that for the rest of the current turn any attacks must be against the monster of his choice, letting it protect the others by TakingTheBullet. [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Staunch_Defender Staunch Defender]] one-ups this attack by ''forcing'' all enemy monsters to attack the one of your choice.

* The ''YuGiOh'' card game has a few cards like this--[[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/My_Body_as_a_Shield My Body as a Shield]] requires a payment of 1500 [[HitPoints Life Points]] to protect creatures from destruction effects, and the special power of [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Stardust_Dragon Stardust Dragon]] does the same thing, substituting the Life Point payment for the dragon's own destruction.

** Similarly, the spell [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=191341 Righteousness]] gives + 7/+ 7 to a blocking creature for one white mana. (For comparison, the closest thing ''green'', the color of big fat creatures and big fat creature effects, has to Righteousness for the same cost is [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=201839 Giant Growth]], which gives only + 3/+ 3 to any creature--but Giant Growth's target doens't have to be a blocker.) There is also the "cantrip" spell [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=28755 Gallantry]] and the much-less-impressive but thematically-similar [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=2708 Rally]].
** Two more spells--also white (noticing a pattern?)--give a single creature the ability to block any number of creatures in combat until end of turn: [[http://ww2.wizards.com/gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?&id=237 Blaze of Glory]] and [[http://ww2.wizards.com/gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?&id=107431 Valor Made Real]]. Blaze of Glory has the downside of ''requiring'' said creature to block every creature it can. Finally, the [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=46617 Avatar of Hope]] may block any number of creatures as an innate ability, and if you are in dire enough straits can be played for minimal cost. There are other white spells and creatures with similar powers, but they don't have the flavor of these ones.

** ''L5R'' has also invoked this trope multiple times in its storyline. Notable instances of YouShallNotPass include the death of the Kami Akodo, and the Battle of the Land Bridge.
* ''[=~Magic: The Gathering~=]'', in its [[GratuitousJapanese Kamigawa]] block, has a card named [[http://ww2.wizards.com/gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?&id=79144 Hold the Line]], which gives absurd bonuses (+ 7/+ 7) to all blocking creatures for fairly cheap. The flavor text, though, is supremely awesome, especially in context:
