* Done at its most {{Badass}} in ''Series/{{Heroes}}''. Thompson gets the drop on Matt Parkman this way and taunts his [[PsychicPowers telepathy]] by saying, "What am I thinking, Parkman?". Then [[BadassNormal Mr. Bennet]] gets the drop on ''Thompson'' by doing this and answers for Matt by saying [[PreMortemOneLiner "Your last thought."]] And shoots him.

Added DiffLines:

* Often played straight in ''Manga/CityHunter'', if nothing else because not cocking the revolver at short range can result in the opponent blocking the cylinder and prevent them from shooting (done twice by amateurs dealing with Ryo and Kaori). Professionals will also cock the gun before taking a shot from distance, but that's not something you want to do with Ryo, as he has a very sharp hearing and will react by [[FastestGunInTheWest drawing his gun and shooting you faster than you can aim your gun]].

* In the machinima ''LeetWorld'', during the first challenge one of these occurs. Leeroy (Team A) gets snuck up on by Cortez (Team B), who is snuck up upon by Westheimer (Team A), who is in range of Ellis (Team B). Note that in this case it is literally completely pointless as there are in a competition where people can be revived, you get points for killing people and they have no reason to talk.

*** Another use of this trope comes in the episode "The Chase", where Cardassians are ambushed by humans and Klingons, and all three are ambushed by Romulans a moment later. This is subverted when the humans decide to just take the scans they came for in the first place while everyone else is making epic speeches with their guns pointed at each other.
*** The ultimate De-Cloak Hello occurs in the episode "The Defector". The Romulans have the ''Enterprise'' surrounded and outnumbered when their leader gives Picard 30 seconds to surrender. After Picard tells him to go screw himself he says that he expected better than empty threats, at which point Picard orders [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome his Klingon allies to decloak as their battlecruisers appear out of nowhere]], weapons ready to kick ass. Picard finishes off with "Well, then, Tomalak... shall we die together?" For many people, that was the moment Picard became as equally cool as Kirk.

* On the episode of ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' which featured [[Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit Casey Novak]] as Gibbs' DistaffCounterpart, her introduction was one of these. And it was awesome. Diane Neal sure can pick her characters.

** Then Gibbs does it to ''her'', and her probie does it to him, snarking, "It's turning into a party around here."

** 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.
*** 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.
