* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' has a variant of this. Ritsuko is about to show Rei's origins to Shinji but the door rejects her card. Then Misato [[StealthHiBye remarks]] from behind a gun that it won't open without her code. She did the same with Kaji when he was about to enter Lilith's chamber.
** ''End of Evangelion'' had one as well: after installing the Type-666 firewall, the next time we see Ritsuko she's sitting next to Lilith, in plain sight. Then she stands up, calmly turns around, pulls a gun and aims at Gendo. Instead of cocking it however, she merely takes off the safety. Subverted because she had no intention of shooting, what with her having the MAGI's self-destruct button in her other hand.[[note]]And then played straight as it turns out said button was overriden by CASPAR.[[/note]]

* In "Fanfic/TheRoadNotTaken", ''Fanfic/ACrownOfStars'', Jinnai is threatening Shinji when he notices Asuka pointing a gun at him.
--> Jinnai stopped talking very quickly. Most people do when someone puts the business end of an M1911 .45 caliber pistol to the back of their head. The sharp, clear click of the hammer being cocked just served to underline the implicit threat in the cool kiss of the barrel’s metal against the back of his head.

* This is one argument for the use of pump-action shotguns in home defense: any burglar who hears that distinctive racking when he enters the house will vacate the premises ([[BringMyBrownPants among other things]]) with alacrity.

* There was an entire XBox 360 commercial built around this trope, with people in a crowded city (and finger-pistols instead of actual firearms); while the commercial never aired on television, it can be viewed on the Internet.

-->'''Vector:''' (attempting to clobber Tex) HRRF! Not bad, but I've thrown down with the best!

* In the climax of ''Film/TheSilenceOfTheLambs'', Jame Gumb -- behind Clarice Starling, wearing night-vision goggles in the dark -- cocks his gun... and Starling, who was smart enough to have her gun ready to fire, turns around and blows him away. Extra stupid on Gumb's part because his revolver was a double-action model; all he needed to do was pull the trigger.
** Presumably he couldn't psychologically resist the extra bit of drama, especially since as mentioned in the book, "he had never hunted one armed before. He would have thoroughly enjoyed it." Clarice, [[SanityHasAdvantages not being batshit insane]], was more practical as well as more professional, since she's a (mostly) trained law enforcement officer, while Gumb has no military or law enforcement training we know of. [[note]] It's stated in the book that Gumb does this to scare his victims, who now know what's about to happen next. Of course, all his previous victims weren't armed.[[/note]]
