Picture this: The hero is surrounded by at least a half dozen redshirts. They are preparing for a fight with melee weapons or fists. When the fighting starts the camera zooms in on the action. But wait, the hero is only dispatching 2 or 3 redshirts at a time. Where are the others? The answer: they are off camera eating noodles(since this trope first appeared in old kung-fu movies).

Notable examples: Equilibrium Book of Eli Most kungfu movies Lampshaded in: Kill Bill with the crazy 88s Burly Brawl in Matrix2
