** He later states that one should use only one of two things, if you can: either the Killing Curse or teleport away. Bear in mind that telling a bunch of kids to use Avada Kedabra (that even if a very practical offensive spell because it's a near-constant OneHitKill, it's an "Unforgivable" (that is "instant ticket to Azkaban" levels of illegal) spell) as their "hammer" brings an awful lot of Foreshadowing to the front in retrospective.

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/2889350/1/Bungle-in-the-Jungle-A-Harry-Potter-Adventure Bungle In the Jungle: A Harry Potter Adventure]]'', Harry goes to Collins and Qwan with the expectation they'll teach him how to duel. They laugh and say neither of them knows anything about dueling beyond it being two idiots standing in place and trading spells. They're going to teach him how to ''fight''. Their instructions later show through when Harry, Qwan, and Bill fight a demon by first siccing a horde of inferi on it.

* ''The Sanctuary Telepath'': Janine very quickly abandoned her idealist views about her telepathic powers and generally uses them as she finds necessary. Yes, this includes reading her friends' minds too. Then again, when one goes up against an elemental from an other dimension radicalism becomes a requirement...

* Like canon, Ranma Saotome frequently employs unusual tactics in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11577216/4/A-Horse-For-the-Force A Horse for the Force]]''. Notably, people who've fought/sparred against him pick up his way of thinking. After a few spars with Ranma, Shaak Ti wins a spar against a fellow Jedi by punching him then hitting his wrist to steal his lightsaber.
