Adam850: This page needs to be split. It describes two different and tangentially related concepts: fighting back-to-back and defeating your enemy while your back is turned.

Sci Vo: I agree.

Sci Vo: I think that I divvied up most of the examples right (between this and Back-to-Back Badasses), but I haven't played Kingdom Hearts so I don't know where that one goes.

Anonymous Mc Cartneyfan: The difference between this trope and Offhand Backhand is in the Canonical List of Subtle Trope Distinctions and the Laconical List of Subtle Trope Distinctions; this trope covers that one, but not vice versa. Back-to-Back Badasses is something else altogether; Back-to-Back Badasses are fighting on the same side.


Willbyr: Anyone know exactly what this is referring to? Searching on That Other Wiki brought up a lot of different media with the name.
