'''Basic Trope''': A character who pulls far more than his own weight in combat, being able to defeat many enemies at once.
* '''Straight''': [[TheHero Bob]] blasts through {{Mooks}} by the hundreds.
* '''Exaggerated''':
** Bob depopulates entire worlds on a regular basis.
** Bob is fighting against the whole world going against him, and doing a pretty good job at winning.
* '''Downplayed''':
** Bob is a skillful fighter, able to take on multiple opponents easily. But more than six and he's in trouble.
** Bob wasted hundreds of enemies, though he was mostly using ambushes and traps to get kills while using stealth and superior mobility to avoid retaliation. Once the enemy successfully ambushes ''him'' and forces him into a straight fight, he's toast.
* '''Justified''':
** He's just ''[[BadassNormal that]]'' [[BadassNormal good]].
** Bob is a trained warrior, while mooks are an unprepared bunch of peasants wielding [[BladeOnAStick blades on sticks]].
** Bob has a vast array of superhuman abilities that make him far more powerful compared to a normal human.
** He specializes in attacks that affect a huge area, maybe to the point of being a PersonOfMassDestruction, and most of his battles are in wide-open areas where the enemy can ZergRush.
** [[PhysicalGod Bob]] is [[NighInvulnerable virtually]] (if not [[CompleteImmortality totally]]) indestructible and invincible. He may not necessarily be a very good warrior, but that hardly matters when he's up against a bunch of ordinary mortals.
* '''Inverted''':
** ZergRush.
** Bob and his allies are the ones getting blasted apart by a small number of EliteMooks.
** Alternatively, Bob picks a fight with a horde of mooks, [[RealityEnsues and gets steamrolled for his trouble]].
* '''Subverted''':
** The mooks had been ordered not to put up a fight.
** Bob manages to beat up 50 mooks, but the 51st took him down easily.
* '''Double Subverted''':
** The mooks had been ordered not to put up a fight, but they did anyway.
** ...Until his superpowered side kicks in.
** Alternately, they were ordered not to put up a fight, but Bob still has no trouble fighting off the wave of ones that weren't.
* '''Parodied''':
** Bob is a BoringInvincibleHero who can defeat the forces of evil while barely lifting his lazy ass off the couch.
** Everybody, including the bad guys, treats Bob as a OneManArmy, [[MistakenForBadass even though he really isn't and makes no secret of this]].
* '''Zig Zagged''':
** Bob racks up massive amounts of kills, and then it was discovered he had help...but only on the last of the 1,000 battalions...which were ordered not to put up a fight...but did anyway...even though they had no weapons or training....
** Bob has MesACrowd as a superpower, and uses [[DoppelgangerAttack Doppelganger Attacks]] to take down a great number of the enemy. Technically, he fought them off by himself, but at the same time, he was not alone.
* '''Averted''':
** Bob's combat abilities are on par with the rest of the cast.
** ''Nobody'' is a one-man army. Anyone who tries to fight too many opponents on their own, even if they're quite a badass, will still get their ass handed to them.
* '''Enforced''':
** "We need to show the audience how awesome our hero is, so let's have a scene of him taking on a few hundred mooks by himself".
** This is a video game.
* '''Lampshaded''': "Help! He's unstoppable!"
* '''Invoked''': "[[OneRiotOneRanger Normally I'd assign backup, but since it's you]]..."
* '''Exploited''': Evilz knows of Bob's power, and makes sure to plan insurance fraud with all his minions [[UriahGambit before sending them off to die]], in order to get a massive payout and [[DisproportionateRetribution claim revenge on the insurance providers who overcharged him]].
* '''Defied''':
** Bob calls for backup rather than attempting to take on the enemy base by himself.
** [[BigBad Emperor Evulz]] orders some of his mooks to join Bob.
** Emperor Evulz sends only one mook after him.
** Bob is an ActualPacifist who doesn't want to fight the mooks.
* '''Discussed''': "Legends say the Mountain Warrior slew ten thousand foes in a single day".
* '''Conversed''': "Exactly ''how'' many kills have you racked up over the course of this game?"
* '''Implied''': We see two actual armies face off. The opposing army charges forward. Bob, alone from the other army, also charges forward. When we next cut to that scene, we see Bob knee-deep in corpses.
* '''Deconstructed''':
** Everybody Bob knows lives in fear of him, and the government has prepared deadly countermeasures in case he ever switches sides.
** Alternatively, killing hundreds of people has devastating effects on Bob's psyche.
** When Bob gets somehow killed or dies, perhaps of old age, the government realizes how screwed it is because its RedshirtArmy has nowhere near similar fighting ability. EasilyConqueredWorld ensues.
** Bob may kill hordes of mooks with ease, but he's ultimately JustOneMan and can't be everywhere at once. The Enemy adopts a strategy of attacking on multiple fronts simultaneously, which Bob can't defend against.
** The Enemy decides to NukeEm since it can't beat him conventionally.
** The reason why Bob fights on his own is to [[DeathSeeker hope someone could put him out of his misery mid-fight]].
** Bob can wipe out armies, but that would soon tire him out and make him weaker.
* '''Reconstructed''':
** The government, due to incompetency, never uses said countermeasures, allowing Bob to wipe out armies anyway.
** All of his friends have been killed while trying to be this trope, so Awesome Bob goes into TranquilFury on all of his enemies and murders the lot of them.
** Bob breaks down for a while, but recovers and comes back even deadlier.
** Bob is a [[LonersAreFreaks loner]] who [[IWorkAlone works alone]] and doesn't care for or need others' concern. If people fear him, all the better, [[ThePrince as long as they don't hate him]].
** The allies build up strong defensive garrisons and advanced transportation so that they can HoldTheLine while Bob zooms from fight to fight.
** Alternatively, they send Bob out to take the fight to the enemy homeland. After all, the best defense is a good offense.
** The setting has an AllPowerfulBystander superpower that has hitherto ignored the war, but using WMD will make them NeutralNoLonger and the resulting CurbStompBattle would make Spetsnaz fighting baby look fair. So the Enemy decides it'd rather not take the risk.
Sir! If you keep going back to OneManArmy, you'll make the rest of us look bad, sir!
