* In ''[[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]]'''s Creator/SciFiChannel seasons, Pearl Forrester kept Bobo (an ape man who considered ripping lions apart a hoot) and Observer (a quasi-omnipotent RealityWarper) -- two people who could easily end her if they wanted -- through sheer force of will. The fact that neither man is particularly bright and [[RuleOfFunny it's funny]] helps.

* Jack O'Neill from ''Series/StargateSG1'' does this a lot, and often seems to get away with it. Once he even did it while helpless on a torture rack.

* On ''Series/{{Bewitched}}'', the fact that Endora was a powerful sorceress rarely dissuaded Darrin from telling her off, even though quite a lot of the curses he suffered over the show's run happened as a result. Even worse were the few times he argued with Samantha's ''father'', who even Endora was afraid of.

** In season 6's "Battle of the Bastards, the Masters parley with a recently returned Daenerys, demanding she surrender, exile herself and Tyrion from Meereen, hand over the Unsullied, Grey Worm and Missandei for auction and her dragons for slaughter. Daenerys tells them that they've got the meeting wrong: She's there to accept ''their'' surrender. As as the Masters are talking, the viewer can see Drogon (the biggest and most powerful of Daenerys' dragons) closing in on them. Cue the battle turning from a CurbStompBattle in the Masters' favor to a rout for Daenerys.

* A rare heroic version occurs in the finale of ''Series/{{Flashpoint}}'' where [[spoiler: Parker]] despite being shot several times and [[spoiler: having managed to disable the last dirty bomb]], takes the time to tell the suspect that their entire plan was undone, that for all their planning, everything they'd done would have been for nothing. After all that the suspect had done in the two-part episode, their fury was wondrous to behold.

* ''Series/WalkerTexasRanger'' has an example of MuggingTheMonster that crosses into this. While shopping for wedding china with his fiance, Walker notices a man loudly harassing a woman and attacking an employee who tries to make him leave. Walker intervenes and tells the man to leave, and the man takes a swing at him. Naturally, Walker effortlessly blocks it, informs the man that he's a Texas Ranger and tells him to leave again. Then the man decides ''to try to hit Walker again'', and naturally gets the crap beaten out of him, without a single piece of china being damaged.

** Chinese gangster kidnaps John, tells him he is Sherlock, John says he isn't hi, Sherlock intervenes and goes into full blown SherlockScan mode, than tries to (awesomely) and (genuinely) get his friend out of the bad position-which puts ''him'' in a bad position, and Chinese gangster ''tries to kill him'' IN FRONT of a certain RetiredBadass. Needless to say, the gangster gets killed.
* Throughout the first two seasons, Sherlock constantly slammed Lestrade, Anderson and the rest of the police as a bunch of idiots who couldn't keep up with him and insulting them constantly. Thus, when Moriarty makes it look like Sherlock has been setting all his "crimes" up just to solve them himself, the cops are inclined to agree and John warns Sherlock that every officer he's ever put down is waiting to slap handcuffs on him.

* In season 3 or ''Series/HeroCorp'', you have the bad guy who's chasing Stève, Stan and Burt for having escaped his [[FightClubbing fighting ring]].
