* ''Film/TheMatrixRevolutions'': The Machines play it straight when they storm Zion with any army of Sentinels. One for each human, in fact.

'''Resistance Fighter 2:''' That can't be right.\\
'''Morpheus:''' Why not?
One Sentinel for each human, every man, woman, and child in fact.Zion. Sounds like the thinking of a Machine to me.

** Kurosawa later pulled it off again in ''Film/Kagemusha'', where it gets [[Deconstructed]]. To cut a long story short, the army that was once under the main character's command gets [[spoiler: destroyed after it charges against a line of matchlock gunners that are hidden behind a long wooden stockade]].

** FridgeLogic and gross incompetence can justify it for the clones. They are placed under the command of Jedi Generals. Generals that have no experience leading massed armies, have no experience in mass warfare, and employ wholly incompatible fighting styles. Jedi must close to melee range to employ their lightsabers, while using said lightsabers to defend themselves against the ranged weapons they face. The clones who follow them are equipped for ranged combat, and have no means to defend themselves against ranged attacks when ordered to charge by their Jedi superiors; the end result...zerg rush.

Mace Windu had a point when he said that Jedi were peacekeepers, not soldiers.

* In ''[[Film/TheHungerGamesMockingjay The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1]]'', [[spoiler:this is how the District 5 bombers assault the power plant. Enough of them run at the guards until they overwhelm them. If the ones carrying the bomb fall, those behind them pick it up and continue to run.]]
