One down, millions to go.
Scout Sergeant Cyrus after killing a Tyranid, Dawn of War II

The one with the rifle shoots! The one without follows him! When the one with the rifle gets killed, the one without picks up the rifle and shoots!

Dora: Yeah, beware, there must be seven of them inside!
Jack: Seven hundred, to be specific.

There're thousands of Zerg!
Tychus Findlay, StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty

Tychus Findlay: So how was it, Jimmy, fightin' them zerg?
Jim Raynor: All the scrapes we got into back in the day, all the narrow escapes, none of it compares to how terrible they are, Tychus. You don't know what true fear is till you've got a thousand of these sons of bitches barrelin' down on ya.
StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, conversation prior to Zero Hour

It doesn't matter. We're the Swarm; we can sacrifice thousands for each one of their soldiers.

Every time we killed a thousand Bugs at a cost of one M.I. it was a net victory for the Bugs. We were learning, expensively, just how efficient a total communism can be when used by a people actually adapted to it by evolution; the Bug commissars didn't care any more about expending soldiers than we cared about expending ammo.

Corporal Vanhala: A Finnish soldier is as good as ten Soviets!

Whoa! A horde of (insert Pokémon name here) appeared!
Pokémon X and Y / Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, during the beginning of a Horde Encounter.

Richard Sonnac, The Secret World

Not sure if your opponent has assembled a "Cloak of the Undead King"? Don't worry, I have a foolproof method of finding out! Mouse over his stack of Power Liches in combat, note down the number, if it's somewhere between several hundred thousand or if the text box is flickering and glitching out, he probably has it assembled. Let me explain, normally, Necromancy revives only Skeletons, but with a Cloak of the Balanced King, you revive Liches instead. Liches are Level 5 Necropolis Shooters, and your opponent has billions of them. He has so many, that if he ever tried to split the stacks in his inventory, his game will crash.
