* In Creator/GuyRitchie's ''Film/SherlockHolmes'', Holmes and Watson find themselves in a fight with a number of dirt antagonists. Both Watson and Holmes are willing to improvise. Pots, pans, cans, etc abound. In fact each is the quintessential dirty fighter, going so far as to [[GrievousHarmWithABody throw one bad guy into another.]] [[AvertedTrope Averted]], in the same fight, when Holmes and his opponent both, at different times, politely request a momentary break in the fight to recover.

*** And this is continued into the Sequel Trilogy: In ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', Kylo Ren takes advantage of his saber's cracked crystal by installing vents on the side of the hilt, like a crosshilt. In his fight with [[spoiler: Finn, he uses these as weapons when forced into close combat, before raking the blade up Finn's back like a whip.]] And who can forget [[spoiler: his killing Han Solo, ''his own father'', as soon as he had the chance.]]

* A number of characters from ''IpMan''. Even the titular hero, who is a MartialPacifist, is not above kicking joints in, knees to the face, chops to the throat etc. He may not ''outright'' cheat, but he certainly isn't a stickler for the rules of gentlemanly sparring.

** In ''Film/BatmanBegins'', Henri Ducard even hangs a lampshade on this while training Bruce Wayne saying, "This isn't a dance." Ducard is also one himself. "You've sacrificed sure footing for a killing strike (tap, Bruce falls through the ice)." His mantra is "Mind your surroundings.", which Batman is doing by the end of the movie. When Batman confronts the Scarecrow, Crane immediately sprays Batman with fear toxin from a hidden dispenser in his sleeve. He bought chemical weapons to a fistfight.

** On the other hand, one of his supposedly pragmatic acts did [[AvengingTheVillain come back to haunt him]] in the sequels -- although in all probability, though, the Big Bad probably would probably just have made up some other excuse to seek revenge.
