* Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger in any of his 1980's (and some later) appearances. If he isn't slaughtering his way through the Hyborian Age as ''Film/ConanTheBarbarian1982'', he was mowing down endless waves of mooks in things like ''Film/{{Commando}}'' and ''Film/{{Eraser}}''.
** In ''Commando'', Matrix kills 81 baddies. Including one incident of [[ShutUpHannibal failed diplomacy]], a guy whose [[NeckSnap neck he broke]] in public without anyone noticing, and the funny guy he said he'd kill last. [[ILied He lied.]]
** This, incidentally, makes the eponymous alien hunter in ''Film/{{Predator}}'' that much more badass. Imagine Arnold concentrating his entire One Man Army power... on ''one guy''. That's basically the third act of ''Predator''.
* Each of Film/{{The Avengers|2012}} is one of these, but special mention goes to TheHulk, who is all but explicitly called one when Tony Stark and Loki are facing off.
-->'''Loki''': I have an ''army.''\\
'''Stark''': We have a Hulk.
** Due to being OvershadowedByAwesome, Captain America's status as this is given more screentime in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' as he's shown taking down freighter's full of pirates, entire squads of soldiers (including taking down Brock Rumlow, who ''himself'' is pretty badass), and even an attacking ''[[CoolPlane quinjet]]'', and his martial arts skills combined with his enhanced abilities have been given more time to shine. The only person capable of taking him on is the eponymous Winter Soldier, who himself is shown taking down Fury's heavily armed SUV, firing killshots through walls, ''catching'' Cap's shield, and neutralizing the heroes' would-be air support before they can get off the ground.
* Just like in the comics, Comicbook/{{Batman}} is one in pretty much every film he's been in. This is particularly showcased in the warehouse fight scene in ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'', where Batman takes down over two dozen heavily armed PrivateMilitaryContractors by himself. Another example occurs when he fights the Red Triangle Gang in ''Film/BatmanReturns'', when he inflicts no less than ''three'' {{No Holds Barred Beatdown}}s on them over the course of the film.
* ''Film/CodeOfSilence'': Zigzagged. Norris' character is your standard "unstoppable man of destruction" in the climax, taking out the entire Colombian cartel by himself (no one is willing to help him after he makes himself a pariah within the police department), but when he barges into their BadGuyBar earlier in the film to fist fight the whole gang, numbers take their toll.
* ''Film/{{Deewaar}}'': Vijay fearlessly faces down seven racketeers all by himself and emerges victorious.
* ''Film/DieHard'': Detective [=John McClane=] followed a similar path as ''Rambo''. He doesn't do that bad in the first movie against Hans Gruber's terrorist gang, but he was shown to be quite out of his depths and got seriously injured throughout the night, relying mostly on luck and bravado. In later movies he becomes an indestructible badass who mows down mooks by the hundreds and ''wins a fight against a harrier jet''.
* In ''Film/DraculaUntold'', Vlad III Dracula destroys an army of a thousand men attacking his castle single-handedly after gaining vampire powers.
* Like his comic book counterpart, ''Film/{{Dredd}}'''s eponymous character qualifies. In spite of being teamed up with [[NewMeat Anderson]], Dredd does most of the killing, especially in the early parts of the film. Notably, [[BigBad Ma Ma]] breaks out ''[[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill three]]'' [[{{BFG}} .50 calibre]] [[GatlingGood Gatling Guns]] to try and take him out once [[WeHaveReserves just throwing]] {{Mook}}s at him doesn't work. ''It still isn't enough''. The only time Dredd has any difficulty is when he runs out of ammo fighting some [[DirtyCop corrupt judges]], and even at that, he manages to take out two of them.
* Cleric John Preston in ''Film/{{Equilibrium}}'' has 118 confirmed kills in the movie. His record lies at 53 people in a single fight. And we don't know how many people he killed before the movie began.
* In ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'', Yondu Udonta survives his M-ship smashing into the ground [[MadeOfIron with little more than a few scratches]] and then takes down [[spoiler: an entire Sakaaran platoon (and a necrocraft)]] in seconds with his controllable TrickArrow. He's also leader of the Ravagers, a band of ruthless and amoral space-pirates who are feared by almost everyone in the galaxy.
** [[spoiler: We get another dose of this in ''Vol. 2'', only this time the victims are his own mutinous crew. Poor bastards never stood a chance...]]
* Half the reason [[Film/{{Inception}} Dom Cobb]] hires Eames for his team is because Eames is an expert forger who can take any form he wants in the dreamworlds. The other half is because Eames is an absolute ''badass'' who can hold off most of an army of militarized subconscious projections.
* Spoofed with Topper Harley in ''Film/HotShotsPartDeux'', in which his kill count during the final battle is actually ''tallied on screen'' (it flashes "Bloodiest Movie Ever'' somewhere around 290). He's also a One Man Air Force in the [[Film/HotShots first film]].
* Frederick Zoller from ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'' killed around 300 soldiers with the aid of a good vantage point to pick them off with.
* Creator/JackieChan also usually plays one of these as well. It's the reason people are hyped up about ''Film/TheForbiddenKingdom'', where he squares off against Creator/JetLi. Also like Li, he has also played in a movie where there's two of him, though, true to his more wholesome image, it's a lot wackier.
* [[Film/JamesBond Bond. James Bond.]] Who, on regular days, takes down entire private armies with either his PPK or judo.
* Creator/JetLi in many of his movies. He doesn't even need weapons, most of the time. Doubled in ''Film/TheOne'' with ''two'' Jet Lis, each of whom is fully capable of taking on an army and winning thanks to the in-universe ConservationOfNinjutsu. Naturally, the final battle involves a good-vs-evil face-off between the two. Face with such awesomeness, even Creator/JasonStatham can't do much but stand back and watch.
* John Carter from...well... ''Film/JohnCarter''. He takes down an entire army by himself and the bodies have to be pulled off of him.
* ''Film/JohnWick'' wastes no time in showing that he has ''earned'' his status as TheDreaded. Over the course of two movies, he kills about 200 people single-handedly.
* The Bride from ''Film/KillBill'' single-handedly defeated the Crazy 88 gang. Of course, [[NonindicativeName there aren't 88 of them]]. They thought the name [[RuleOfCool sounded cool]]. Careful watching and counting brings the actual count to around 82. She did it using only two swords (picking up the second halfway through the fight) and [[ImprovisedWeaponUser a broken table leg.]] ConservationOfNinjutsu played a part here, but she still managed to take them out without serious injury until the CuteButPsycho girl showed up.
* ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'': Each of the Kingsmen is implied to be capable of pulling this off, due to the combination of their intensive combat training and numerous handy weaponry and devices. During the movie, the ones who showed it best were Galahad and [[spoiler:Eggsy]].
** Galahad [[spoiler:killed many of the church-goers under the HatePlague]].
** [[spoiler:Eggsy]] wiped out most of the mooks he came across at Valentine's lair [[spoiler:until most of the remaining reserves cornered him, and even then he figured out a way to kill them all [[KeystoneArmy at one fell swoop]]]].
* Ogami Itto from the film ''Lone Wolf and Cub: White Heaven in Hell'', based on the [[{{Manga/LoneWolfAndCub}} manga of the same name]], holds the record for the highest on-screen body count by a single character in a single film at '''150!'''
* While he often has friends or an army on his side, [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Aragorn]] certainly kills enough Orcs in battle to qualify, and was very much this trope for part of the battle of Amon Hen in the first film.
** Aragorn has killed 60 enemies on-screen, but this also includes some EliteMooks, and he certainly killed much more enemies during off-screen fighting scenes. Just remember the many [[TheWarSequence war sequences]]. Gimli and Legolas aren't so bad either, as both claim to have killed each like 40 Uruks during the battle at Helms Deep.
* ''Film/ManOnFire'': A kidnapping ring, including corrupt Mexican police, run rough-shod over the citizens of Mexico City and defy all attempts to stop them. Thus, they are completely unprepared when John Creasy unleashes a One Man CurbStompBattle on them and kills dozens of them in short order.
* ''Film/TheMatrix'': The One Man Army versus spawn point of Agent Smiths. Place your bets.
** Trinity performs fairly well in this role, too.
* In ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'', the eponymous character singlehandedly defeats a majority of the Hun army and then, upon discovering that a few still survived, got their leader killed. With '''''fireworks'''''. As WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick put it, Mulan is "the only Franchise/DisneyPrincess with a body count. In the thousands."
* Oddly enough, {{invoked}} in ''Film/MyNameIsNobody''. Jack Beauregard is already a legendary gunslinger who has killed several enemies alone on several occasions. But the character calling himself Nobody, who idolizes Beauregard, wants him to become a ''real'' legend by single-handedly defeating the Wild Bunch, a gang 150 men strong. [[spoiler: Which he eventually does -- because he has a rifle, and they're carrying explosives in bags with shiny metal decorations perfect for targetting at a distance.]]
* Raizo from ''Film/NinjaAssassin'' kills more than 45 people on screen. Doesn't sound like much, compared to some other people on this page. Unless you consider that all of them were [[ConservationOfNinjutsu ninjas]] themselves. His kills include [[spoiler:his former Master]], who certainly had [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower Charles Atlas Superpowers]]. Raizo also possesses [[HealingFactor magic regeneration abilities]], to make things even more awesome.
* Mike Banning as played by Gerard Butler in ''Film/OlympusHasFallen'' and it's sequel. In both films he mows down mook after mook without so much as breaking a sweat all to save America.
* The Punisher, as mentioned in the comics section, perfectly fits this trope, and in the movies, this is no different. Special mention must go to ''Film/PunisherWarZone'', the third ''Punisher'' movie. Frank Castle kills over 70 baddies, using various guns, grenades, [[EyeScream chairs]], [[OffWithHisHead knifes]], a metal pipe and his fists. On one occasion, he kills a bad guy with a ''single punch'', [[MadeOfPlasticine literally punching straight through his face]].
* Rama in ''Film/TheRaid'' and it's sequel takes down hundreds of bad guys almost single-handedly. Mad Dog and The Assassin both count as well considering they give Rama more of a fight than everyone else together.
* So far, {{Rambo}} has killed over 250 people, including background information given in ''First Blood''. He does get a lot of help in ''Film/RamboIII'', and in ''Film/RamboFirstBloodPartII'', he starts out as a commando on a mission to shoot photographs, not the enemy, but he is abandoned by the Army once he starts killing Communists left and right.
* Zhao Yun, Zhang Fei, and Guan Yu in separate scenes of the first part of John Woo's ''Film/RedCliff''.
** Any character played by Chow Yun-Fat in one of Creator/JohnWoo's HeroicBloodshed films.
* Tik-Tok from ''Film/ReturnToOz'' is a literal example of this trope, even calling himself OZ's "army". This looks patently ridiculous at first glance, with him appearing to be a clumsy copper boiler with a head, two spindly arms and thick legs that make him slower than a glacier... and then you see him single-handedly wipe the floor with a large pack of wheelers who are pure terror until this point in the story. Then as the rest of the wheelers flee, he grabs one in a chokehold and mercilessly interrogates him.
* Evelyn Salt, from the film ''Film/{{Salt}}''. A one-woman special forces unit, she is able to single-handedly take out squads of specially-trained security agents and other operatives hot on her tail, [[MacGyvering improvise]] a cannon of sorts from a fire extinguisher, cleaning chemicals and the leg of a table, jump off bridges and land on the roofs of trucks unscathed, and fashion darts from freshly-milked spider venom -- amongst other things.
* River Tam in ''Film/{{Serenity}}''. Also a classic example of WaifFu.
* [[Film/ShootEmUp Mister. Smith.]] Confirmed kills: 141. Some with [[EyeScream carrots]]. It gets even more awesome if you consider that he didn't even needed explosives or [[MoreDakka machine guns]], only carrots, handguns and his improbable aiming skills. Considering we don't know anything about his past for sure, Smith might have racked up considerably more kills. Oh, and he was the [[NoodleIncident unabomber]].
* The newest starship ''Enterprise'' from the 2009 ''Film/StarTrek'' takes the concept of One Starship Armada to ridiculous extremes. Nero's ship the ''Narada'' wrecks an entire squadron of Klingons, a Starfleet armada, and finds spare time to [[strike:blow up]] implode a planet. Guess which starship defeats it all by itself?? Seriously, it's as if any ship with the name ''Enterprise'' is made of badassinum alloy.
* ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness.'':
** A much, much more straight and literal example comes in the form of John Harrison. The man is ''unbelievably'' badass: He takes on a whole squadron of ''Klingons'' single-handedly, doesn't even so much as ''budge'' when Kirk is attempting to beat the crap out of him, and survives his ship crashing head-first into San Francisco no worse for wear. When you get right down to it, it makes perfect sense considering he's ''[[spoiler:Khan Noonien Singh]]''. The title of OneManArmy is not only deserved, but practically lampshaded all throughout the film.
** The [[spoiler:''Vengeance'']] is designed to be the most advanced and powerful warship in known space. Given that it's referred to as [[spoiler:''Dreadnought'']]-class, and the tendency of classes in this 'verse to be named after the lead ship, it's safe to assume that there is at least one other ship of that class.
* Any and all Jedi in ''Franchise/StarWars'' tend to the One Man--or being--Army trope, though they really only achieve it if they're [[CharacterShield main characters]]--otherwise they tend to [[RedShirt die]].
** Made more explicit in the {{Novelization}} of ''Literature/RevengeOfTheSith'', which describes [[TheChosenOne Anakin Skywalker]] as "a brigade's worth of firepower in his own right," announces that two Jedi starfighters turning up to a space battle is enough to swing it to the Republic, and mentions an incident where Obi-Wan, when [[TheCavalryArrivesLate clone support was delayed]], apparently killed every droid in the target area by himself.
* Hit Girl from ''Film/KickAss'' is a One ''Child'' Army. Usually she works with her dad, meaning the Trope doesn't technically fit, but in at least one scene, she mows down a small army of trained killers by herself to rescue him. [[PintSizedPowerhouse Not bad for an 11-year old.]]
* Nearly any character being played by Creator/StevenSeagal, anyone? I don't think I even need to specify which film, do I? However, one notable example would definitely be ''Film/OnDeadlyGround'' (1994).
* In Creator/ZackSnyder's ''Film/SuckerPunch'' the [[OneManArmy One Woman Army]] is Baby Doll in the first "Dance" sequence in which she beats up a group of Samurai with guns. On her own. And those samurai are at least twice her size.
* [[http://www.complex.com/pop-culture/2012/10/liam-neeson-taken-ass-kicking-infographic Bryan Mills]], BadassGrandpa on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge in ''Film/{{Taken}}''. He's not just a One Man Army, but a One Man Army that [[TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty couldn't give less of a shit about what constitutes a fair fight]]. He has 32 confirmed kills, not counting the {{Mooks}} he ''just'' beats up. Don't know if the [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown fire extinguisher incident]] is counted, though.
** The sequel promises more of the same against the pissed-off extended family of some of the {{Mook}}s he slaughtered in the first one.
* In ''Film/TheWorldsEnd'' [[spoiler:Andrew]] turns out to be ''surprisingly'' badass, felling waves of Blanks at one point without stopping for breath.
--> "[[PreAssKickingOneLiner I hate this fucking town]]".
* The [[http://radio.foxnews.com/2016/07/29/viral-videos-wonder-woman-trailer/ trailer]] for ''Film/WonderWoman'''s movie shows her standing up to an ''entire'' regiment of the German army, kicking some serious A.
* ''Film/XMenFilmSeries''
** Wolverine. He'll take down as many people as possible.
** Victor Creed in ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'', is strong and sharp enough to take down whole squads.
* Foes fallen from Zatoichi's sword cane are impossible to count. For comparison in ''Zatoichi. Darkness Is His Ally'' (1989), [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1l-6PhnAD8 Ichi kills 103 of them.]]
* Tallahassee from ''Film/{{Zombieland}}''. In the film's climax he bars himself in a circus stall surrounded by hundreds of zombies to distract them away from Columbus while he rescues the girls. Rather than ending as a HeroicSacrifice, he ''kills all of the zombies without being scratched''.
