* ''Film/AmericanHistoryX'', documenting the descent into white supremacist ideology by two blue-collar American brothers, literally uses this trope. Derek, the older brother, finishes off one of the would-be black robbers this way after gunning them down, making him bite the curb before [[FinishingStomp viciously stomping]] on his head and killing him.
* Two examples in ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'':
** The first one (which isn't seen but heavily implied) between the Huns and the Chinese army. Based on the aftermath Mulan and her friends see, it didn't go very well for the Chinese troops.
** Mulan herself later delivers one to the Hun Army when she uses a rocket to cause an avalanche, destroying nearly all of the Huns in the process.
* ''Film/{{Suspiria}}''. The head witch was invisible while summoning the zombie of Suzy's friend Sara to kill Suzy. However, her powers of invisibility weren't as strong as she thought, as an outline of her form started appearing, giving Suzy the chance to kill her with a single stab to the neck, before the zombie could reach Suzy. She died without any struggle.
* ''Film/BoogieNights'' features a literal example in which Rollergirl demonstrates an alternate use for her skates.
* In ''Film/KillBill 2'', The Bride has one of these when she [[spoiler:kills Bill (the BigBad of the series) in seconds by hitting him 5 times, causing his heart to explode]].
* In the climactic fight of the prison boxing movie ''Film/{{Undisputed}}'' (2002) Monroe takes a beating in the first few minutes but the rest of the fight played this straight.
* ''Film/XMen'':
** Wolverine and Sabertooth fight three times during ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'', with Sabertooth getting the upper hand the first time, the second ends indecisively, while in the third, Wolverine beats ten shades of sunshine out of Sabertooth in around ten seconds.
** ''Film/XMenFirstClass'':
*** Shaw and his cronies' first attack on the CIA facility--[[spoiler:the entire staff of the base is killed, almost entirely by Azazel repeating the [[TeleFrag same brutal tactic]], one by one, on each human at the base, with no way to stop him until all are dead]].
*** [[spoiler: Riptide is immediately taken down by Havok when the two teams fight, and is subsequently buried under a wall of metal by Magneto.]]
*** Sebastian Shaw casually sends Erik Lehnsherr flying across the room several times by [[FingerpokeOfDoom merely tapping him]]. In desperation, Erik tries to use metal to restrain Shaw, but Shaw casually tears through it and pins him against a wall. Erik only wins because Shaw stops to give him a WeCanRuleTogether speech. Erik then takes the opportunity to knock away Shaw's helmet, allowing Charles Xavier to paralyze Shaw with his mental abilities.
** ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'':
*** [[spoiler:Wolverine vs. Magneto. Even without adamantium covering his bones, Magneto has a baseball stadium full of metal to weaponize, preventing Wolverine from even landing a hit before he's disabled.]]
*** Magneto's fight with a Sentinel only lasts a few seconds.
*** {{Subverted}} with Wolverine's fight with the mafia goons. The audience and Wolverine himself believes that it won't even be a problem for him, but then we learn that Wolverine doesn't have his adamantium (which besides making his claws super-sharp, also protect him from a headshot and absorb the impacts of the bullets). Wolverine still wins fairly easily (he's still ImmuneToBullets because of his HealingFactor), but it's not entirely one-sided.
* In ''Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture'', V'Ger destroys three Klingon battlecruisers without breaking stride.
* In the ''Film/StarTrek'' film:
** Captain Nero's ship, the ''Narada'', effortlessly wrecks over fifty starships: 47 Klingon, then 7 Starfleet, all offscreen, plus the ''Kelvin'' at the start.
** And [[TheStoic Spock]] does this to anyone who [[BerserkButton insults his mother]].
** Spock vs. Kirk, round one: Spock applies nerve pinch, and Kirk is reduced to a boneless heap on the floor. Round two lasted longer, but Kirk still got his ass handed to him.
* ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'':
** The ''Vengeance'' lays a severe beating on the ''Enterprise'', enough to knock her out of warp. It's sufficiently one-sided that the ''Enterprise'' never gets to fire a shot as the weapons systems are the first to be taken out. [[spoiler:That doesn't stop the torpedoes ''themselves'' from [[TrojanHorse being useful]], however]].
** John Harrison versus anybody besides Spock.
*** His attack on Starfleet HQ. He spends several minutes hovering outside the window unloading heavy weapons fire into the conference room and laying waste to anyone who stands up or tries to fight back. Kirk finally manages to cripple his gunship only for Harrison to [[EjectionSeat safely beam himself out]].
*** Versus an entire Klingon squad. [[TheWorfEffect The Klingons don't stand a chance]].
*** When Kirk tries to punch out Harrison, he hurts himself more.
*** He beats the crap out of [[spoiler:Kirk near the film's climax]], and it takes him literally two seconds to deal with [[spoiler:Carol and Scotty]].
* ''Film/IronMan1'': Tony Stark's Power Suit vs. a group of batshit crazy terrorists armed with powerful automatic weapons, grenade launchers, and '''tanks''' = ''Ridiculously'' easy Stark victory, usually in under 6 full minutes. The more he upgrades the armor, the more epic the curb-stomp.
** ''Film/IronMan2'':
*** Those {{mooks}} didn't stand a chance against [[spoiler: Black Widow.]]
*** Neither did the [[spoiler:Hammer drones.]]
* StevenSeagal is known for his characters dealing these out due to Seagal's fondness for playing an InvincibleHero. The trope is almost averted in ''Film/MarkedForDeath'' -- [[BigBad Screwface]] is one of the few (only?) villains to actually give Seagal any real trouble.
* Similarly, the death of [[BigBad Lo Pan]] in ''Film/BigTroubleInLittleChina''. It's all in the reflexes!
* ''Film/{{Serenity}}'' River defeats both a room of thugs in a BadGuyBar as well as a horde of reavers with barely a scratch on her.
* Similar to the above example is Leeloo in ''Film/TheFifthElement'' vs a large array of mooks.
* The Kraken attacking the merchant ship in ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanDeadMansChest'' can hardly be called a battle. It resembles the Kraken grabbing into the ship for a snack of sailors and then crushing it like an empty soda can once it's finished.
* Most of the fights in ''Film/IpMan'' that the titular character is in. The film was explicitly meant to glorify him and be all nationalistic. The opponents he Curb Stomps usually were Curb Stomping their opponents before he shows up. In the final fight against General Miura, Ip Man caps off by pinning the other guy against a pole and going to town with a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown while scenes of his practice on a training dummy are interposed.
* [[BadassGrandpa Mr. Miyagi's]] fight with Johnny and the other Kobra Kai, in ''Film/TheKarateKid''. Also, his fight with Kreese, is almost a SingleStrokeBattle.
* ''Film/LastOfTheMohicans'': Magua, who throughout the film has shown himself to be a total BadAss by killing pretty much ''everyone he wants to kill'', squares off with Uncas (himself a pretty fair badass) for the fate of a pretty girl and kills the poor boy with ease. Then Uncas's [[BadassGrandpa elderly father]] rushes forward for some payback, and takes Magua apart in seconds.
* ''Franchise/TheMatrix'' trilogy:
** Neo's final battle with Smith in ''Film/TheMatrix''. After running from the Agents during the whole movie, Neo finally becomes the One and transcends physical fighting. He's able to defeat Smith literally with one hand behind his back, without even looking. There's some snapback in the sequels, where Neo is no longer able to instantly defeat any Agent, which is handwaved as "Upgrades." Even still, we're not expected to see them as a legitimate threat.
** Any fight with any character other than Neo against an Agent ends up this way with the Agent doing the beat down.
** The Battle of Zion in ''Film/TheMatrixRevolutions''. The humans appeared to be holding their own until the Sentinels swarmed en masse and annihilated most of the city's defenses within 30 seconds. The rest of the battle was just the Sentinels mopping up survivors.
* Pretty much all fight scenes in ''Film/{{Watchmen}}'' are like this. The best example is [[PersonOfMassDestruction Dr. Manhattan]] vs the North Vietnamese army. The poor saps barely get to run a few steps before getting disintegrated.
* Director Kurt Wimmer loves these:
** ''Film/{{Equilibrium}}'': Every battle that Preston gets into, he wins effortlessly. Of particular note is his fight against TheDragon, Brandt. They'd fought to an apparent impasse while training, but now Preston wins their [[FacialHorror face off]] with a SingleStrokeBattle.
** In ''Film/{{Ultraviolet}}'', Violet squares off against a dozen fellow hemophage assassins. The other {{Mooks}} were just humans, but these guys have all the same supernatural powers that she does. And they do the same thing she does. And there's a dozen of them. All of them combined should present some kind of threat, right? Right? After two seconds, we find out [[spoiler:no]].
* In ''Film/AChristmasStory'' Ralphie knocks down the bigger and older bully Scut Farkas and proceeds to [[PintSizedPowerhouse sit on him and pummel him]].
* ''Film/{{Blade}}'' does this after drinking quite a lot of blood in both the first film and [[Film/BladeII the sequel]].
* ''Franchise/StarWars'':
** In ''Episode II'', [[TheDragon Dooku]] [[MasterSwordsman handily defeats]] Obi-Wan and Anakin before [[BigDamnHeroes Yoda arrives.]]
** Anakin pays Dooku back in this fashion in the next movie.
** And Anakin's [[OneManArmy orgy of vengeance]] on the Tusken Raiders (Sand People) who tortured and killed his mother would qualify.
** In ''Episode V'', Darth Vader curb stomps Luke in their first duel. Luke [[AnArmAndALeg loses his right hand]], [[OlderAndWiser his innocence]], and his best friend was captured -- and he was lucky to get away with his life. He got better, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin but when the title said]] "TheEmpireStrikesBack," [[DarkerAndEdgier they weren't kidding.]]
** In ''Episode VI'', on the other hand, after a brief, fairly even exchange, [[UnstoppableRage Luke curbstomps Vader.]]
** The Battle of [[SingleBiomePlanet Hoth]] also counts, although it's only a [[YouShallNotPass holding action]] to delay the Imperial advance long enough so the Rebels can evacuate.
** The [[FinalBattle Battle of Endor]] goes this way at first until Chewbacca and a pair of Ewoks hijack an [[HumongousMecha AT-ST]].
* In ''Film/The13thWarrior'' has this as a surprise. One of the hero warriors seems to be getting his ass kicked in a duel. Then [[spoiler:just as he seems to be on the brink of defeat, he casually dodges his opponent's blow and lops his head off. The entire fight was a Curb Stomp Battle that he pretended was close to teach the villagers to respect the heroes]].
* in ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'', Indiana Jones is faced with a skilled swordsman in the midst of a more involved fight/chase scene. Obviously too fed up to deal with him at the moment, Indy [[spoiler:pulls out a gun and shoots him]], effectively putting an end to the fight before it could get started. The legend is that it was initially scripted to be a fight, but Harrison Ford was suffering badly from diarrhea and improvised to cut the scene short and remove any potentially unpleasant running around.
* The short film ''WesternAnimation/BambiMeetsGodzilla''.
-->''(Splat!)''
* Godzilla's fight against his InNameOnly counterpart "Zilla" in ''Film/GodzillaFinalWars'' is famous for being the shortest fight in Godzilla history. 13 SECONDS. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIcExdpsEcQ Watch it here]].
* Godzilla was on the receiving end when Monster X changed into Keizer Ghidorah. ''Gotengo'''s interference was all that saved him.
* From the minute Godzilla gets free in ''Final Wars'', to almost the very end could very well be considered this. This whole movie seems dedicated to this trope in general, the earth itself even gets it.
* The final punch-up in ''Film/TheForbiddenKingdom''. The audience sees it coming, but the gang leader certainly doesn't.
* In ''Film/{{Troy}}'':
** The young and reckless Paris challenges hardened warrior Menelaus to CombatByChampion, and gets an asskicking. His defeat is so absolute it ends with him literally crawling towards his brother to get away.
** In the first fight, Achilles runs towards the enemy champion, dodges two thrown spears on the way, reaches him and kills him without breaking pace.
* In ''Film/{{Transformers}}'', Jazz made a valiant effort to attack Megatron and keep him away from the others, but it did not end well. Optimus Prime does this most memorably against Bonecrusher.
* In ''Film/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen'', most fights in the second movie go this way. But when the Decepticons are wading headlong into the combined air-ground fire of entire battalions of a military that is equipped to fight them ''and'' is working alongside the Autobots, that's a given.
** Starscream vs Ironhide and Ratchet in the Mission City battle. The two Autobots are temporarily taken down in ten seconds while Starscream didn't even scratch his paint job.
* In ''Film/TransformersDarkOfTheMoon'', [[spoiler:the final fight between Optimus Prime and Megatron turned out this way. Megatron won't be coming back this time.]]
* In ''Film/GIJoeTheRiseOfCobra'', the Cobra attack against the NATO convoy is a perfect example. Every shot from the Cobra gunship annihilates a NATO vehicle, their heavy machine gun bullets just bounce off of it, and when they fire missiles at it the gunship ''spins around in midair and shoots the missiles down.'' Once the Cobra Vipers disembark, they perform an UnflinchingWalk through assault rifle fire. It doesn't turn into an actual fight until the Joes arrive.
* In ''Film/{{Avatar}}'' the first major fight is this, with the RDA wiping out the [[spoiler: Na'vi Hometree (and, unbeknownst to them, killing their leader in the process)]] without so much as a single casualty. Indeed the only downside to that fight for them, beyond seriously pissing off the Na'vi, is causing a couple of {{Heel Face Turn}}s in their own troops.
* The BigBad of ''[[Film/TheLostSkeletonOfCadavra The Lost Skeleton Returns Again]]'' vs [[EldritchAbomination The Dreaded Magdraklorp]]. [[spoiler: The Skeleton is [[KilledMidSentence crushed to dust before]] he can finish his BadassBoast ]]
-->[[spoiler: '''The Skeleton''': [[BlatantLies Get ready for the battle of the centur-]] [[KilledMidSentence *crush*]] ]]
* As a deliberate parody of action movies, the titular character in ''YouDontMessWithTheZohan'' is a literal OneManArmy to the point that the Israeli counter-terrorist unit constantly tricks him into taking out terrorists all on his own ''without even giving him a gun''. At the start of the movie, Zohan is shown to be eliminating an entire terrorist cell by himself.
* The battle between the [=SEALs=] and Hummel's forces in ''Film/TheRock''.
* In ''Captain Phillips'' the pirates, in a small boat, end up facing three US warships. The pirates lose.
* ''Film/{{Taken}}''. All of ''Taken''. Liam Neeson curb stomps the entirety of Paris, except for his fight with TheDragon.
* In a comedic example, Everett [=McGill=] from ''Film/OBrotherWhereArtThou'' picks a fight with his ex-wife's fiancée and ends up getting punched repeatedly while he fails to land a single blow. [[WhatTheFuAreYouDoing Of course, it doesn't help that his fighting stance leaves him wide open.]]
* John W. Creasy, played by Creator/DenzelWashington, vs. oh, pretty much the entire corrupt Mexico City police force in ''Film/ManOnFire''.
* The title character from ''Film/TheBookOfEli'' does this to most of the bad guys he comes across.
* In the sequel to Disney's ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'', ''Return of Jafar'', Genie Jafar utterly curbstomps the weakened Genie -- during his VillainSong no less!
* Happens to Castor Oyl in the live action ''Film/{{Popeye}}'' movie when he signs up for one round with a professional boxer - you wouldn't really expect it go go any other way though, especially when said boxer is named [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Oxblood Oxheart]].
* The final fight between [[CoolLoser the three protagonists]] and [[JerkJock Sam]] at the end of ''Film/{{Kidulthood}}''. Sam spends a few minutes beating the hell out of Trife, when he gets attacked from behind by Jay, who is thrown on the floor and beaten down in ''under a minute'', before Sam shoves the third protagonist aside with little effort. The other twenty or so people present are too scared to anything. Although, when Sam [[WouldHitAGirl attacks Alisa]], Trife [[UnstoppableRage Curbstomps him back]].
* The first time Danny goes into an underground prize fight in ''Film/{{Unleashed}}'', he is pitted against the reigning champion. Since all fights are death matches, and this guy has been the champ for a while, you can expect this fight to be brutal. You would be wrong. As soon as it starts, Danny punches him in the throat three times in quick succession, and the guy keels over.
* In the introductory scene in ''Film/{{Darkman}}'', warehouse owner Eddie Black and his dozens of workers thoroughly frisk Durant and his small handful of goons. Eventually, it is revealed that Durant had an ace up his sleeve, the wooden leg of an invalid gang member was actually a machine gun. With some creative acquiring on site after the initial volley of bullets, it is revealed that most of Durant's gang is left standing (possibly one casualty). The only one left standing on the other side is Eddie himself (and not for much longer).
* In ''Film/BadDayAtBlackRock'', Spencer Tracy delivers an epic beatdown to a thug played by Ernest Borgnine. Made all the more awesome by the fact that Tracy's character is a HandicappedBadass, and he is literally fighting the thug singlehanded.
* In ''Film/TheATeam'', [[SmugSnake Pike]] literally believes himself to be the toughest guy on the planet and takes great pleasure in beating down an (at the time) pacifistic B.A. Baracus. At the end of the film, B.A. promptly shows him how wrong he is in this belief.
* ''Film/ThePrincessBride'': [[AllThereInTheManual The book]] makes it more explicit: [[DashingHispanic Inigo Montoya]] kills four of the best swordsmen in the world. In five seconds flat.
* ''Film/TronLegacy'': [[TheDragon Rinzler]] effortlessly lays a smackdown on of [[ActionSurvivor Sam]] in the most [[{{Badass}} showboating]] way possible when they first meet ([[OneLiner "why do I feel like I just got dunked on?"]]).
* Big Daddy does this in ''Film/KickAss'' when he [[spoiler:storms the BigBad's warehouse and kills about eight men very quickly and brutally, without so much as a scratch on him]], all of which was [[OhCrap later viewed on hidden camera]].
* ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'': A battalion of treeherders vs one of the two most powerful wizards in the world, with the wizard having home-fortress advantage. The ents win. Helped that most of the wizard's army was away doing their own curb stomp.
** The Battle of Helm's Deep starts off as a curb stomp for the defenders as the Uruk-hai got past every defense and killed most of the defenders. The battle turns into a curb stomp for the Uruks, however, after [[TheCavalry Gandalf and the Rohirrim]] show up. Granted the defenders still manage to kill plenty of Uruk-hai, the only reason it's a curb stomp is because there are only a few hundred defenders against 10,000 Uruks.
*** Even more of a curb-stomp in the Extended Edition when the surviving Uruk-hai run into the Huorn forest.
** The [[ArmyOfTheDead Dead Men of Dunharrow]] at the Battle of Pelennor Fields in The Return of the King
* ''Film/SpaceJam'' has a brief one where the Monstars are initially scoring so often against the Tune Squad that the score ticker spins out a label stating [[LampshadeHanging "Kinda one-sided, isn't it?"]]
* In ''Film/{{Thor}}'', [[spoiler: The Destroyer]] does this to the Warriors Three and Sif. When Thor arrives, he turns the tables around. The same thing happens earlier when Thor fights (flies straight through the head of) the giant ice monster.
* Apollo Creed's fight against Ivan Drago in ''Film/RockyIV''. Apollo, being past his prime, was no match for the juiced-up Soviet.
* The final fight scene in ''Film/{{Gladiator}}'' is a great example of this trope done well, when [[spoiler:mortally wounded Maximus methodically, painfully, and extremely satisfyingly takes [[SmugSnake Commodus]] apart in front of the entirety of Rome, with Commodus landing only one minor blow early on.]]
** The first battle counts as well. The Romans were able to route most of barbarians before the lines even met with barrage of flaming projectiles. We only see a handful of Romans perish (mostly to a single big guy with a giant axe), while any Germans that fought were ripped to shreds.
* ''Film/{{Aliens}}'' sets the Colonial Marines up as well-trained, hardened badasses who will probably fare much better than the crew of the ''Nostromo''. A few minutes in once they reach the alien nest, ''nearly 3/4ths of the squad is killed or cocooned.''
* An example occurs in the ''Film/{{Hitman}}'' movie. Even ends with a very literal and abrupt curb stomp by [[{{Badass}} 47]]. Most others in that movie are curb stomp battles as well, but not so literal.
* ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'':
** Loki makes the [[SuicidalOverconfidence monumental mistake]] of trying to [[BullyingADragon intimidate the Hulk]] with boasts about Loki's godlike status and powers. What follows can only be described as [[spoiler:the Hulk picking Loki up by his legs and literally [[MetronomicManMashing wiping the floor with him]]]].
--->'''Hulk:''' Puny god.
** Early on in the movie, Black Widow decisively [[EstablishingCharacterMoment delivers]] a curb-stomp beating to a group of Russian terrorists after revealing her [[WoundedGazelleGambit ploy]] to spill their plans.
* Lee vs O'Hara in ''Film/EnterTheDragon''. We're led to believe that O'Hara will put up a reasonable fight, being TheDragon and all. Instead, he doesn't even get the courtesy of getting a punch in (well, he gets a kick, but Lee [[GroinAttack is just too quick for him]]).
* ''Film/TheLastStarfighter'' has these all over the place. Alex almost gets curb-stomped by the first assassin to show up at his home (until Centauri shows up and rescues him), convincing him to go back and fight, until he finds out the Rylos got so thoroughly curb-stomped in his absence that he, Grig, and their prototype Gunstar are the ''only defense left for the entire Star League.'' Only after he curb-stomps a few enemy spy ships does he realize that he really IS good at this, and manages to curb-stomp the ''entire Ko-Dan armada (including command ship) in about two passes''.
* In the 2011 film ''Film/{{Warrior}}'': Tommy overwhelms all of his early opponents with superior speed and power, quickly defeating them in brutal fashion. His fighting style highlights his role as the AntiVillain of the film. %% This entry was added automatically by FELH2. In case the wording doesn't make sense, rewrite it as you like, remove this comment and tell this troper.
* In their first fight in ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'', [[GeniusBruiser Bane]] absolutely crushes Batman. He lets Batman hit him many times with his most powerful blows and gadgets only to show Batman that there's nothing he can do to beat him, and by doing so, break his spirit. Then he starts fighting back and for the rest of the fight, Batman is in desperation mode, trying everything to slow him down but nothing works. Eventually Bane takes Batman and ''cracks his mask while it's still on his face'' and, in a recreation of one of the most iconic moments in comic-book history, lifts him up over his head and breaks his back over his knee. He ends the fight by ripping the mask off completely and throwing it away.
** At the end of the film, Batman repays the favor. It ends with Bane on the floor in excruciating pain. It helped that this time Batman knew [[AttackItsWeakpoint how]] to fight him.
* Subverted in ''Film/{{Snatch}}'' when BradPitt's Pikey boxer has seven shades of shit punched out of him by Gorgeous George, but it turns out he's hustling. When he decides to fight back, he knocks George unconscious with a single punch. He does the same thing again later on.
* The 2011 remake of ''Film/{{Footloose}}'' has Chuck and his goons show up to Bomont's prom. Two of them grab Renn's friend Wilard and hold him down and start punching him, and he doesn't fight back until his girlfriend tells him to. A few seconds later, he beats the ever living hell out of them, his girlfriend starts to take out another goon, and then Renn arrives and knocks Chuck out in what has to be the most failed attempt at a mugging in Bomont's history.
* In ''Film/{{Predator}}'', Arnold's commando team is shown curb-stomping a group of South American rebels. This is intended to make the Predator itself that much more formidable as it proceeds to curb-stomp them one by one.
* In ''Film/TheHobbitAnUnExpectedJourney'', Thorin [[spoiler:receives one from Azog the Defiler, whose giant mace and warg slam Thorin into the floor without him getting a single hit in.]]
* The original ''Film/SpiderMan1'' film, the Green Goblin throws Spider Man through a brick wall, throws a grenade in his face and beats the crap out of him. Spider-Man appears completely beaten, until the Goblin threatens to finish off Mary Jane "nice and slow" -- then Spidey curbstomps the Goblin.
* In ''Film/Wishmaster4TheProphecyFulfilled'', a bouncer throws [[JackassGenie the Djinn]] out of a club, and beats him up while the Djinn tries to get him to make a wish. After he's finished, he wishes that the Djinn would put up a better fight. No points for guessing how this turns out.
-->'''Djinn:''' Granted!
* In ''Film/JurassicParkIII'', The Tyrannosaurus Rex, previously the most fearsome dinosaur of the series, is taken down in only a minute by the [[AlwaysABiggerFish Spinosaurus]].
* ''Film/JurassicPark'' ends with a fight between the Tyrannosaurus and the lead Velociraptor. Three guesses who wins.
* ''Film/ManOfSteel'': Possibly so much so that it doesn't even count, but when the military was going after the Kryptonians....
* In ''Film/OnlyGodForgives'', Julian puts up a noticeable struggle to even lay a single punch on his opponent, Chang, without any success. Chang meanwhile does not even break a sweat while effortlessly pummeling Julian into a beaten and bloody pulp.
* In ''Film/PacificRim'', Striker Eureka's battle with Mutavore. The {{Kaiju}} never landed a single hit and Striker finishes her off with missles in less than a minute. Though according to the novelization, Mutavore utterly thrashed two Jaegers on her way to Sydney. This was to highlight how powerful Striker Eureka was.
** An OffscreenMomentOfAwesome in [[spoiler: Mako's memories]] where Coyote Tango defeats Onibaba.
** In the prequel comics, the first Jaeger-prototype Brawler Yukon ''demolishing'' the surprised Karloff.
* The first "fight" in ''Film/OngBak'', to the point of [[OneHitKO hilarity]].
* The finale of the ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective'' pretty much amounts to [[BigBad Ratigan]] slapping Basil around like a rag doll while Basil flees in terror. Of course, being [[MagnificentBastard Basil]], he manages to win.
* The battle of San Francisco bridge in ''Film/RiseOfThePlanetOfTheApes''. A bunch of apes, up against SWAT troopers with automatic weapons. [[spoiler:Caesar sees straight through the killzone the humans lay out on the bridge, and sends [[TheBigGuy Buck]] and [[SociopathicHero Koba]] to lead some of the apes under the bridge and through the fog to close the gap and flank them. Caesar then creates a ruse to fool the troopers into letting down their guard, before giving the signal for a mass attack. Completely surrounded and unable to take on a full rush of LightningBruiser apes, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome the human forces are soundly beaten and sent running with almost no casualties on the apes' side]].]]
* The climax of ''Film/{{House}}'' involves Roger simply shoving a grenade into Big Ben's ribcage while the latter delivers panicked, ineffectual threats, after Big Ben [[HoistByHisOwnPetard accidentally rendered himself completely unable to hurt Roger by taking his son hostage and making Roger overcome his fear.]]
* In ''Film/TheHungerGames'', the battle between [[ScaryBlackMan Thresh]] and [[DarkActionGirl Clove]] could be best described as "one-sided". [[spoiler:He grabs her by the throat and Clove's smugness satisfyingly melts away into terrified panic as she screams for help, before he finishes her by repeatedly smashing her up against the cornucopia's outer wall]].
* In ''Film/{{Godzilla 2014}}'', the first battle between Godzilla and the male Muto at Honolulu goes this way. Godzilla supposedly beats the tar out of it due to his superior size and strength, forcing the male Muto to flee. He also beats the heck out of the female in the final battle until the male joined in.
* Early on in ''Film/{{Chopper}}'', the titular character wants to be the boss of his prison wing, but another prisoner called Keith has that status. Chopper tries to taunt Keith into attacking him, but it doesn't work. So one day, Chopper enters the exercise area where Keith is walking up and down, stands there for a moment visibly working himself into a murderous rage, and then runs up to Keith and [[spoiler: stabs him repeatedly in the face, screaming at him]]. He then walks away, immediately calming down, and watches as Keith slowly bleeds out, then comes over and [[DissonantSerenity asks Keith if he's all right]], even offering him a cigarette. [[spoiler: Keith dies of his wounds and Chopper becomes the new top man.]]
* In ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2014'', each of the turtles properly get their asses handed to them when facing Shredder, even as a team. Splinter is the only one able to really give him much of a fight.
** It's just as bad in [[Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1990 the original film]], with Shredder making chumps out of the brothers.
* In ''Film/DraculaUntold'', Vlad's first battle against the Ottoman army after gaining his powers is against 1000 men. He kills all of them with no problem and then mounts their impaled bodies on stakes as a message to Mehmed.
* ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'':
** Harry versus a bunch of louts early in the film. He creams them all without so match as getting a hair out of place.
** Lancelot vs several of Valentine's goons in the opening of the movie, trivially taking out half a dozen men.
* In ''Film/{{Yamato}}'', just like in history, the eponymous Japanese battleship gets sunk by American bombers without ever seeing, much less successfully taking out, any American ships. All she manages to do in return is shoot down a few planes.
* The swordfight between Chon and Rathbone in ''Film/ShanghaiKnights'' is this. Chon had no chance of defeating Rathbone and only wins due to a unexpected turn of events.
