You may not guess it from the name, but this trope is about being bored while fighting off an army of mooks. Apparently is was originally just about fighting off an army of mooks, but someone added the "being bored" part to differentiate it from "What a One-Man Army
Misuse check of the 11 examples (I can't be certain, because I don't know most of them, but I'm going on what is written):
So that is 2 correct, 2 uncertain, and 7 misuses.
1 correct, 3 wiki admin, 4 uncertain, and 11 misuses (the 20th is a self-reference in the trope description).
I get the feeling this came about as a title looking for a trope. I'm not entirely familiar with the phrase, but I think it means something along the lines of "Kicking ass, but more!" right? In which case it's not really an appropriate title for a trope about being bored while kicking ass. On the other hand, the "being bored" is the only part making it tropable.
I would suggest a rename is in order, assuming there are enough examples of people getting bored fighting mooks. The current title would work as a stockphrase, but I guess that isn't going to happen. As it stands, it's a sinkhole magnet.
