* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsCloneWars'' has varying degrees of this trope. Durge is shown (and explicitly stated in other [[ExpandedUniverse EU]] material) to be a one-man arsenal, but "only" kills a few dozen soldiers. General Grievous is similarly able to cut through clones and Jedi with his usual psychopathic zeal, but his body count is relatively low. Anakin and Obi-Wan are better examples, a "body count" of droids well in the thousands, but they have their limits and still rely heavily on the armies they command. Mace and Yoda, however, wipe out hundreds of droids ''without their lightsabers'' and tear apart entire legions with little help from their soldiers.
** A good number of fans believe that [[VillainDecay Grievous should have been that badass in the movie]].
* In ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' special mention goes to Yoda who gets into a contest with Asajj Ventress over whether a certain planet will join the Republic or the Separatists. If he can escape Asajj's best troops, the plane will go with the Republic. Yoda barely breaks a sweat. Asajj ([[HeroKiller who's personally killed many Jedi]]) then tries to attack Yoda in a rage, and he casually extinguishes her dual blades using the force then force-pulls them from her grasp.
--->'''King Katuunko''': You were right, Count Dooku. One Jedi is not worth a hundred battle droids... more like a thousand.
** Jedi Master Mace Windu: "My name is General Mace Windu of the Jedi Order. At this point of the Clone War, I have dismantled and destroyed over 100,000 of you type one battle droids. I'm giving you an opportunity to peacefully lay down your weapons, so that you may be reprogrammed to serve a better purpose than spreading the mindless violence and chaos which you have inflicted upon the galaxy." ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'': Unfinished Business
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'':
** Any fully realized Avatar using their SuperMode is effectively the [[WorldsStrongestMan single most powerful combatant in the entire world]]. There are several established cases of Avatars fending off entire armies.
** The whole Team Avatar is this to some degree. In the episode "Earth King", this group of kids in age from 12 to 15 year old, just blast to the Earth King's Palace through a legion of elite earthbenders.
** Iroh is explicitly described as a "one man army" after he [[spoiler:escaped from prisoner during the Eclipse, fighting off the entire guard, [[BroughtDownToBadass while no one was able to firebender]].]]
** Likewise, Bumi managed to [[spoiler:liberate the city of Omashu]] ''by himself''. He didn't run from the army. ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome The army ran from him.]]''
** According to the WordOfGod, the reason Piandao is so revered as a sword master is because of what happened when he decided he was tired of the military and became a recluse. The military sent a hundred soldiers. Piandao sent them all back. [[BadassNormal And he can't firebend, either.]]
** Then we've got Ty Lee, the butt-kicking, [[GenkiGirl Genki]] DarkActionGirl, who takes out an entire group of elite earthbenders by herself in "The Drill".
** [[spoiler:The Order Of The White Lotus]] is basically ''composed'' of these. [[spoiler:The previously mentioned Iroh, Bumi, and Piandao are all members. There's a reason their battle with a Fire Nation army that was a CurbstompBattle.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'':
** Lin Beifong manages to free her officers from an Equalist base, doing practically all of the work.
** Much like the original Team Avatar, the members of the Red Lotus are incredibly powerful, and all 4 combined have come out ahead while massively outnumbered. Their leader is ''somewhat'' less powerful, [[spoiler:even after becoming an airbender]].
** Kuvira is shown to be one when she [[CurbStompBattle curb stomps]] a group of about twenty bandits single-handedly.
* In ''{{GIJoe}}'', Sergeant Slaughter was known to defeat whole squads of Mooks by himself. But that's not all. When he was put in charge of training the other Joes, he challenged them to attack him all at once. They took him up on it, and he won without breaking a sweat. (Of course, his RealLife counterpart likely isn't ''this'' tough, but still...)
* ''WesternAnimation/MegasXLR''. First episode: On one side, Coop and a nameless sidekick mecha. On the other, a large army of alien mooks and their commander.
-->'''Kiva''': Look at them all. These odds are awful.\\
'''Coop''': You're right, it is kind of unfair. * knocks sidekick out* Now it's fair.
* In ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'', it's shown that apparently a single competent Irken Invader is capable of conquering a planet by themselves. Helps that they do have some impressive technology at their disposal. The main character has even better technology that he's engineered himself, but being a ChaoticStupid GeniusDitz has no way to use them effectively (though he's still pretty dangerous at times).
* The title character of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'', with only a couple prepared traps, single-handedly destroyed hundreds (if not thousands) of [[MechaMooks Kill Bots]] in the third episode.
** Not only that, but the last few Kill Bots actually took a step backwards trying to running away. [[TheHero Jack]] said "No, there is no escape." and [[CrowningMomentofAwesome demolished them]].
** At least once, he managed to beat a moderately large army of robots with literally no effort at all.
** In "Birth of Evil", Aku becomes a ''literal'' example, splitting himself into an army of man-sized duplicates of himself in armor. (However, seeing as Jack's father still defeated them all, he qualifies for the Trope here as well.)
** Ashi, the only surviving Daughter of Aku, takes down an entire army of Orcs, who are after Jack's head, using martial arts and turning their own weapons against them.
* [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Maggie Simpson]], [[BadassAdorable despite being a baby]], can take out ''a group of mobsters with a rifle''.
* [[WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers Brock Samson]], or as he's been referred to by The Monarch, the Swedish Murder Machine.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', Robin, definitely. In ''Apprentice,'' he takes down a whole army of Sladebots by himself, brutally, and in the second part of the season finale, he takes down [[spoiler: ''his entire team.'' By himself again. When they were all attacking at once. And it's a CurbStompBattle.]]
** In fact in "Winner Take All", the Master of Games literally introduces him as a "One Man Army".
* Alice of ''{{WesternAnimation/Superjail}}'' is the only guard in a demented facility full of the very worst psychopaths not fit for regular prison. And she has no trouble kicking all their asses, and keeping the prison in relatively normal condition.
* [[{{WesternAnimation/Ben10}} Benjamin Kirby Tennyson.]] He's one lanky looking kid, but he has a powerful weapon to turn him into over 10 aliens.
* Tai Lung in ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' has his own prison and is guarded by one thousand guards as well as being held completely immobilised. When he gets free of his shackles, he beats up all the guards in a matter of minutes. Granted, he finishes the job with some dynamite that sends a large number of them flying at once; it might have taken up to another minute or so otherwise.
* Pick any fight Agent Bishop from ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003'' has. ''Any'' fight.
* Leatherhead from ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012'', though he tries to isolate himself to avoid fighting. But should he see or even HEAR the word Kraang, he enters an UnstoppableRage even he can't control, unleashing a MookHorrorShow on the Kraang that makes even the Turtles feel a miniscule amount of sympathy for them.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand''.
* Max Steel of ''WesternAnimation/MaxSteel'', who can decimate entire armies thanks to his TURBO energy, and arsenal of weapons thanks to his Ultra-link.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** [[SorcerousOverlord King Sombra]] was powerful enough to conquer the whole [[CosmicKeystone Crystal Empire]] by himself, pose a threat to [[PhysicalGod Princesses Celestia and Luna]] combined, and even curse the entire place to vanish through space and time. And in the present, he becomes a {{Kaiju}}[=-sized=] LivingShadow that's basically a WorldWreckingWave, and it ultimately takes almost every major protagonist, everyone in said Empire, and the [[AmplifierArtifact Crystal Heart]] to put him down for good.
*** In one of the Season 5 finale's {{Bad Future}}s, however, he uses an actual army to conquer the rest of Equestria. Albeit only out of pragmatism instead of any weakness, though, as he's easily able to defend himself from any Royal Guards that attempt to attack him directly.
