** [[LeeroyJenkins Rosehip]] from St. Gloriana especially guilty of this, since she's always the first to charge in despite her tank is a FragileSpeedster.

** The anime only card in Tabletopgame/YuGiOh, [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Dark_Scorpion_Retreat Dark Scorpion Retreat]] is pretty much the card-based version of this trope considering the comedic and bumbling nature of the [[StupidCrooks Dark Scorpions]].

* ''Literature/MartinFierro'': This is a NarrativePoem about Martin Fierro, a {{Gaucho}} who is PressGanged into {{Conscription}} trying to SettlingTheFrontier. At song III, this trope is PlayedForDrama when the [[{{Conscription}} Conscripted]] {{Gaucho}}s, [[TaughtByExperience without any military training]], chase for the Indians after yet another [[RapePillageAndBurn indian incursion on the Frontier.]] Only this time, the Indians made a TacticalWithdrawal and they pull a DefensiveFeintTrap against the Gauchos. Cue a CurbStompBattle where the Gauchos end literally ChasedByAngryNatives. This is to show that the Indians have better tactics that the CannonFooder gauchos.

** And speaking of Spyro, this trope doubles as DidntThinkThisThrough with Ripto in ''[[VideoGame/Spyro2RiptosRage]]''. When the title villain summons his monster Gulp to do away with Spyro after Crush is defeated, Gulp tries to get through the door, but the impact causes the roof to cave in on them and they retreat.

* The 2nd season opening for ''Series/TheMonkees'' shows the boys rushing down the beach towards the water for a swim. Wave comes in, they do a quick 180 turn and dash back up the beach with the wave lapping at their heels. All in [[FastForwardGag undercranked fast motion]].
