* A rather justified action in [[http://www.awkwardzombie.com/index.php?page=0&comic=061807 this]] ''Webcomic/AwkwardZombie'' strip. It's ''kinda'' a bad idea to send a Franchise/{{Pokemon}} into battle if it's also your current mode of transportation.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' episode "The Great One", Scrooge and gang are stranded in ancient China, where Bubba the Cave Duck turns out to be a prophesized hero come to rescue the city from a cruel chancellor and a horde of barbarians. During the climax, the chancellor opens the gate and lets in the barbarian horde, who rushes past him... then immediately comes rushing back ''out'' again. The reason? The HumongousMecha Launchpad just discovered that was hidden as an ordinary statue.

* Film/TheForceAwakens: Finn and Rey are running toward a ship in a salvage yard, when he points out another one. "That one's garbage! (the ship they were running for gets blown to smithereens) The garbage will do!" Made funnier by the "garbage" ship being revealed as the Millennium Falcon.

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.
