* ''Comicbook/TheDarkKnightReturns'' has Batman use this against the Mutant Leader in his second fight. After realising the hard way that being past his physical prime makes a direct confrontation suicidal, Batman lures him into a mud pit, evening the odds between them. He then gives the guy a superficial but extremely fast-bleeding cut above the eyes, and proceeds to beat him down whilst he is wiping blood and mud from his vision.
