Commonly spoken by a SmallNameBigEgo. The change of circumstance often prompts an OhCrap expression. See also VerbalBackspace, OnSecondThought. TacticalWithdrawal is a non-comedic variant BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor often involves this, though more long-term. Compare PunchPunchPunchUhOh. Contrast AttackAttackAttack. May be a comedic UnderequippedCharge. If the character Attack-Attacks anyway, they're probably a BoisterousWeakling.

** The end result of the final scene in "Prince Violent" (aka "Prince Varmint"), where YosemiteSam (as a Viking) thinks he has finally succeeded in invading an archduchy castle and is about to overthrow the royalty ... only to find an Indian elephant, whom he had abused multiple times in the short earlier in their attempts to defeat the castle's guard (BugsBunny), waiting to run him off, and the pachyderm does just that when he swats him repeatedly with a club.
