Does this trope apply to neutral characters as well? The specific example I'm trying to find a trope for is how, in a particular Real-Time Strategy game (Original War), a sniper can take out the driver of a vehicle with one (or two) shots, effectively ending that vehicle's threat and allowing it to be captured. Another editor suggested this trope, but the description says it's a heroic trope.

Would the victory of los Chicago Toros, sans Senors Rose and Noah, versus the Miami Heat at full strength (Including the Big 3+1) on a 27-game winning streak ('72 Lakers had 33) count? (The Bulls still had Deng and Boozer).

I deleted example of 'six day war'. Israel attacked without warning, and as such can't be considered for the example as David vs. Goliath. Israel is also heavily supported by the US, to the amount of 3 billion USD per year. It's a lot of things, that for sure, but it's no David.

With regards to Nanoha, I don't think this trope means "fighting against a slightly more powerful enemy". (Plus, I don't read Force, but did Nanoha and Touma ever fight?)

I removed the accusation that the Patriots won Superbowl XXXVI by cheating because while the scandal six years later is of record, the allegation that they videotaped the Rams practices were unsubstantiated.

I removed the reference to Super Bowl III paving the way for a merger between the NFL and the AFL - it was because the merger was already planned in the first place, in 1966 that they started playing Super Bowls.
