Added DiffLines:

*Rigwarl the Bristleback from ''VideoGame/Dota2'' has a back covered in quills. One of his abilities means he takes 40% less damage from attacks that hit his back and if he takes enough damage from the back, he sprays some of his quills, damaging anyone close enough. Considering he can also cast the Quill Spray independently every 3 seconds and that the damage from the quills increases each time an enemy is hit, it is not unheard of for Bristleback to take down multiple enemies with his back to them.

* In ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'', when one of the nobles standing behind Falk declares general retreat before the battle even begins, Falk decapitates him without even looking back, then dares anyone else to defy Emperor's orders. The others, predictably, fall silent.

* Used by both ChrisJericho and Wrestling/{{Christian}} in their entrances.
* If DiamondDallasPage, SteveAustin or RandyOrton are showing their back to you, do not run up on them. All three use a FinishingMove that's a variation of "grab opponent's head while it's over your shoulder and drop", and are in fact ''easier'' to perform when approached/grabbed from behind.

** The above is a MythologyGag, when we first see Virgil draw yamato in devil may cry 3, he carves a hell vanguard into several peices without even turning to face it. [[spoiler: Makes sense, since WordOfGod confirms that Nero is Virgil's son]].

* Subverted in the first chapter of ''Anime/MazingerZ'' Creator/GoNagai manga. Sayaka sortie in Aphrodite-A to stop a mysterious HumongousMecha is trashing the city [[spoiler:that mysterious HumongousMecha being Mazinger-Z, "piloted" by a Kouji Kabuto [[FallingIntoTheCockpit had just got on the robot and had absolutely no idea of how controlling the damned thing]].]] When she strikes it, the HumongousMecha easily withstands its attack, heaves her FemBot, throws her away... and then it turns its back towards her. Sayaka is incensed, believing that robot thinks Aphrodite is not good enough to fight and is making fun of her. Her father is worried and requests her being careful because it is a monster is dangerous even if he has its back turned to her. She gets ready to attack, when the HumongousMecha suddenly turns around... and its pilot manages to communicate with her and explain he did all that because he did not know how piloting the robot.
