** A variant of this trope occurs during Benjamin's gambit, Tavington confronts him and insults his sons, after which Benjamin warns the Colonel, "Before the war is over, I'm going to kill you." [[spoiler:In the Battle of Cowpens, an incapacitated Benjamin Martin is confronted yet again by Tavington, who remarks, "Kill me before the war is over, will you?" This later ends up backfiring on Tavington.]]

** [[spoiler:Near the end of the Battle of Cowpens, a presumably-incapacitated Benjamin Martin watches the battle as we writhes in pain, having been slashed by Tavington's sword. Tavington, who is right behind him, insults Martin by declaring: "[[MeaningfulEcho Kill me before the war is over, will you?]] It appears that you are ''not'' the better man. " Just as Tavington is about to behead Martin, Martin dodges the killing blow and and grabs a bayonet to stab Tavington in the stomach. As Tavington falls, Martin holds the bayonet on Tavington's neck responds to his insult by concurring with him, declaring that [[PreMortemOneLiner his]] ''[[PreMortemOneLiner sons]]'' [[PreMortemOneLiner were better men]], right before Martin delivers the killing blow to Tavington]].
