* ''Series/TheTwilightZone'': An episode of the 1980s run, "A Little Peace and Quiet," where in the substory about her newly-found amulet that can stop and start time by simply saying "Shut up!" and "Start talking!" Penny (the story's main protagonist) also takes the trope as she ignores news reports about dramatically rising tensions between the United States and Soviet Union, with each side refusing to concede. She realizes much too late that she should not have been a bystander when, in the final moments the [=USSR=] unleashes a massive nuclear bomb attack on the U.S. ... and the only thing she can do to save her own skin is shout "Shut up!"

* In ''Manga/FairyTail'', when Jackal, one of the many villains capable of actually killing another character, comes to assassinate a former councilor, just about no one cares. He sets explosions off all over the town just to piss the heroes off, and when his target runs away in the next chapter, it can be seen that ''no one did anything.

* "WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom": In Control Freaks, we are introduced to Sam's parents whom are cheery and super-optimistic; however, they possess an enormous disdain for their daughter Sam's gothic style and nonconformity to their outlook on life. Suffice it to say, they didn't see eye to eye with their daughter. Also, they were quick to assume that Danny was a bad influence on Sam, and thus eventually had to get a restraining order against him.
-->'''Woman on TV:''' Up next, is your teenage daughter moody, surly, is her outlook on life blacker than her eyeliner? (Sam blinks and glances at her parents, who glare suspiciously at her.) Take an active interest in your child. Know who her friends are. Learn to recognize a bad influence when it walks in your door.
-->(Danny comes in through the door with CDs.)'''Danny:''' Hey Sam, I got that Morbid Anti-social Youth CD you wanted. (Sam's parents glare at Danny.) What? Have you heard "My Parents Reek"? That cut rocks!
