* The final confrontation between Voldermort and HarryPotter is this. Harry calmly explains why all of the [[spoiler: Death Eaters' curses are failing, why Snape wasn't on his side, why Voldy's killing curse failed and will continue to do so.]] Harry then gives the Dark Lord one last chance to repent. He doesn't, and is HoistByHisOwnPetard.

* Happens in ''[[Film/SherlockHolmes Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows]]'', as Sherlock explains to Moriarty how [[spoiler: he's stolen and decoded his notebook and used it to seize every penny he's made from his war-profiteering scheme.]] As an added bonus, the two are actually playing a verbal chess game during his explanation, and Holmes wins that too.

->Oh, I think the explanation might be that you've been fooled by a simple olfactory misdirection. It's a little bit like ventriloquism of the nose. It's an elementary trick in certain parts of the galaxy. But it has got to be said, I don't like the look of that hydrokilominator. It seems to be indicating that you've got energy feedback all the way through the retro-stabilisers, feeding back into the primary heat converters. OOH! 'Cos if there's one thing you shouldn't have done, you shouldn't have let me press all those buttons. But, to be fair, I will give you one word of advice. [[LastSecondChance RUN]]!
