* Invoked and arguably subverted in Creator/DianaWynneJones's ''[[Literature/TheDalemarkQuartet Cart and Cwidder]]'', when mild, dreamy Moril finally [[BewareTheNiceOnes loses his temper]] and attacks the enemy with his MagicMusic. He strikes chords for his friend's hanged brother, for his murdered father, for his imprisoned brother and the coming war--and at the end of it all he's closed up the pass the enemy was coming through, ''with them inside''. Later, though, he acknowledges that he really did it because his beloved horse had just been killed.

* A Belgian Malinois dog named Cairo was among the group of Navy Seals that conducted the fatal raid on Osama bin Laden's compound. Given that a police dog (Sirius, a 4 year old bomb detecting gold labrador) was among the many officers killed on 9/11, it seems like an inadvertent example of this trope.
