* 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]]. Sure, they're [[SuperZeroes the most inept superheroes]] around, but still, he's trying to get the drop on a guy who can shoot acid, and another who can shoot fire, with just a gun. [[spoiler:[[ForegoneConclusion He gets burned]].]]

** In the episode "Chrimera", two Klingons tried to stab a ''Changeling''. Not only were they attempting to stab a giant amorphous liquid being, the Changeling summoned a sword much larger than knives. Even worse, directly before this incident, the changeling had taken the form of fog which covered the entire promenade. You think he might be a little out of your league, guys?

** Interesting example, as Dean was actually banking on this reaction at the time as the plan was to start a fight, so to give his brother a distraction long enough to get rid of the ghost that was killing the prisoners. As Dean is a very tough man himself, who regularly tangles with super strong monsters and demons only to come out on top its fair to say he could have probably killed Tiny if he needed to, this is more an example of a dragonslayer bullying the dragon.

* ''Series/MadamSecretary'': "Standoff" has a grandstanding Texas governor refuse to hand over a Mexican drugrunner and CopKiller who was kidnapped from a Mexican jail by a Texan militia, using the whole thing as a big political show. Secretary of State [=McCord=] has the Mexican government issue an arrest warrant for the ''governor'', and then threatens to add on about half a dozen federal charges up to and including conspiracy, which would ''royally'' screw his presidential hopes; Governor Lockwood just about sets a land speed record backpedaling.
