* In a rare non-willing example, in ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor2'', to destroy Alioth's GiantFlyer warship, [[Myth/HinduMythology Kama]] is recruited to shoot an arrow into [[BadAss Shiva's]] eye, as he did in a certain myth, so Shiva uses [[WaveMotionGun his spear Pasupata]] to strike Alioth. Problem is, Kama remembers ''very well'' what Shiva did to him last time he pulled that trick, and has to be forced into doing it again. [[spoiler:When the time comes, he's also tricked into believing he'd be protected by JP's. Instead, it turns out only ''his memory'' would be protected, and he's promptly elevated into the air against his will to the correct angle so Pasupata's attack destroys both him and Alioth.]]

* ''VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution'': Adam Jensen is a former SWAT officer and TheDragon for one of the world's leading biotech corporations. He is a skilled marksman, stealth operative, close-quarter combatant, and all-around {{Badass}}. This is all [[BadassNormal before]] he's [[TookALevelInBadass given custom, military-grade augmentations]] that make him look even more dangerous, even with his BadassLongcoat covering most of them. This is clearly not a man you want to trifle with, regardless of your opinions of him, his employer, or his augmentations. [[spoiler:Everybody]] does it anyway. It's left to the player to decide how Jensen responds.

** Quite possibly the best example of this in the series is Warden Kuril, who attempts to knowingly imprison Shepard, the most {{Badass}} person in the galaxy, and hold him/her for ransom or sell him/her on the black market as a slave. [[TooDumbToLive It doesn't end well for him.]] Especially stupid, since you belligerently refuse to surrender your weapons on entering the prison, even threatening Kurill, and he (still fully intent on capturing you, remember) [[SuicidalOverconfidence lets you keep your weapons.]] Even ''more'' stupid if you're playing a class that wouldn't have been significantly less dangerous without weapons. What exactly was his plan for imprisoning a Shepard that could throw him across the room with a mean look?

** The same goes for ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]''. You may be walking around in a daedric armour, with the legendary Big Badass Sword of Doom, be confirmed [[spoiler:Nerevar Reborn]] AKA the biggest {{Badass}} in Morrowind's history, who just killed a diabolic demi-god three other demi-gods couldn't handle in a fight. Yet some people still tend to believe they have a chance against you. It's worse if you're a vampire or publicly known werewolf.

* This tends to go both ways in any given ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' game; early bosses tend to be barely capable of fighting, but insist on attacking well-known {{badass}}es anyway, while the last few bosses are you taking on beings that could probably one-shot you if they decided they didn't want to follow the spellcard rules.

* In the beginning of ''VideoGame/BatenKaitos Origins'', some low-ranking Dark Servicemen start taunting Sagi after he's overheard musing over the morality of the assignment. They apparently forgot that Sagi is both a spiriter and a talented swordsman. For extra WhatAnIdiot points, two of the servicemen start ''another'' fight with him ten minutes later -- while [[{{Badass}} Guillo]] is backing him up.

* ''VideoGame/MaxPayne3'': When the bad guys initially (try to) kidnap Max's principals, they could be excused for not knowing how much of a {{Badass}} he was. When they attack his principal's office to kill him, specifically ''because'' he's killed so many of them, you start to wonder why on earth they're TooDumbToLive enough to be so bent on provoking him.

** In the ''ComicBook/MassEffectRedemption'' comic, some shuttle pilots try to get additional "[[AttemptedRape docking fees]]" from [[HotScientist Liara T'Soni]]. Liara, as it turns out, is a powerful asari biotic who works with Commander Shepard. Even if she didn't, ''all'' asari are biotics to varying degrees of strength. And they don't even need implants to use their powers. Those pilots should've known better.

** Likewise, we routinely see Templars or Slavers threatening mages who don't have good control over their powers (or cause them to become desperate enough), that the only way out they see is to allow demons to possess them and become [[HumanoidAbomination Abominations]].

* In ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII: The Frozen Trone'', [[GeneralRipper Grand Marshal Garrithos]] strikes an [[EnemyMine unholy alliance with the Forsaken]] in order to drive the Undead Scourge out of what remains of Lordaeron. When they succeed, he proceeds to tell the leaders of the forsaken to piss off and get out of ''his'' city. Said leaders are an undead [[OurElvesAreBetter elf]] [[FourStarBadass who used to be a ranger-general]] and a former member of [[TheLegionsOfHell the Burning Legion]]. Naturally, [[KickTheSonOfABitch Sylvanas just tells Varimathras to get rid of the bastard, which he gladly obliges]].

* In ''VideoGame/TheFairlyOddparentsBreakinDaRules'', Timmy does this to [[BabysitterFromHell Vicky]] in the opening cutscene for the "Time Warped" level.

* ''VideoGame/Halo3ODST'' plays this straight, and lampshades it, in the audio logs. A man in a car is honking his horn while people run in panic in the streets. A very large man who was giving away kebabs to refugees approaches and leans on the man's car, telling him to calm down and have a kebab. When the man keeps honking, the butcher tells the man "My friend, I am an eight hundred pound man with a large cleaver, who kills animals every day and chops them into small pieces. Do you really want us to be enemies? Or would you rather have a nice kebab?"
** In the next log, the idiot still hasn't taken a hint, prompting the butcher to smash his cleaver through the car hood. "Oh! a thousand pardons. But it was either that or smash your windshield, pull you out, and make you into kebabs." After making his point, the butcher finishes the conversation with a polite "...please, stop honking your horn. It frightens the children."
