** One of the straightest examples is with pirates in "So what IS a [=McNinja=]?" The Doctor is [[OneManArmy Oman-Man-Armying]] his way through the pirates, until their captain tells them to stand down and let him do the fighting. Then he proceeds to put up a fight and even toss the Doctor overboard.

It's also AuthorityEqualsAsskicking, but aside from the present trope, it's pretty surprising since pirates are supposed to be no match for ninjas for obvious reasons.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/LearningWithMangaFGO'': The Mouse Casters duplicate themselves into an army and attack Mash. Mash defeats them off screen and comments that it doesn't matter how many there are because they are weak.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'' Book 13 the first one of the Gavs to turn into a SuperSoldier, "Binnie", slaughters two Toughs and a lab full of civilians before he's taken down, while all the subsequent Super Soldier Gavs are killed off quickly. Justified in that Binnie had a few days in quarantine to grow weapons and boosts and he took Tagon's Toughs by surprise, and by the time the other Gavs started turning the Toughs were ready for it with close air support.


** Later two airships full of Wulfenbach Stealth Fighters were chasing the [[TheHunter Vespiary Squad]]. They even managed to kill or wound most of this crack team, but ran into a few [[SuperSoldier Jäger]] generals and a [[McNinja Smoke Knight]] who in turn massacred them and made it look insultingly easy.

* ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja'' has applied this trope to every fight the title character's been in (except for the Raptor Banditos, who turned out not to be villains), even going so far as to [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/18p08 explicitly reference]] it on several occasions.

* The page image comes from a scene from ''Webcomic/SamAndFuzzy'', where Mr. Blank takes on the [[FacelessGoons mook legions]] of Mr. Black. Blank and Black are both [[BadAss blankfaces]], elite ninja assassins, while the mooks are... well, they're mooks. As Mister Blank puts it about two minutes later: "Looks like I might have to change my name to Mr. Red!"

* Lampshaded in ''Webcomic/CaptainSNES'' in a [[http://www.captainsnes.com/2011/12/27/guest-comic-heaven-and-hell-3/ guest comic]] showing various characters' respective ideas of heaven and hell. In Edge's heaven, he is surrounded by 9 obviously lovestruck Rydias. Edge acknowledges the readers knowledge that this would probobly be too much for one person, before stating "I have 3 words for you. Inverse. Ninja. Law."

** Which Dr. [=McNinja=] then counters with a dose of GenreSavvy: He uses EnemyMine and BuddyCopShow cliches and joins up with Rayner against the clones, thereby making them both strong. Rayner doesn't want to team up with his enemy of course, but since rejecting help means rejecting ThePowerOfFriendship, [[IneffectualLoner he becomes powerless against the clones when he doesn't allow McNinja to help him]]. Thus they both defeat all the clones, which means [=McNinja=] is at full power again.

** Gil goes out alone, [[GenreSavvy likely in full knowledge of this trope]], to face off against an army of invading clanks. Naturally, he destroys some and forces surrender from the rest. The most hilarious portion of this sequence is that the invading army's general [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20071121 realizes what's going on]] and attempts to have Gil shot before he can do anything.

Added DiffLines:

** Applied straight [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots1018.html here]]: after a fight between Roy and vampire Durkon that required numerous strips with a partial victory by Roy and vampire Durkon forced to protect himself behind a shield, then a whole squad of vampires created from the bodies of the clerics of the Creed of Stone is destroyed quickly, with Roy killing three of them in three hits. Justified by the fact that Durkon is a high level cleric, while nothing is known about the level of the clerics of the Creed of Stone.


** Lampshaded on his behalf by Sydney, who realizes that as the last villain standing and one who's refused to fight before now, he's probably the toughest and will take a lot to beat, with her loudly calling "inverse ninja!" on it.

* In ''DragonMango'', [[http://dragon-mango.com/comic/chapter07/dm07-46.htm Peaches comments on how much easier it was to fight a bunch, and Bleu Berry explains as a scientific principle]]. They call it the "Snow Dancer Syndrome."
