* A chase scene in ''Film/NeedForSpeed'' begins with Julia (who's driving) and Tobey getting boxed in on a narrow road; a car carrying a shotgunner is pressing them forward, while two big off-road vehicles come at them head-on, blocking the road. Tobey advises Julia to drift onto the shoulder, but [[GameOfChicken Julia aims at the more blinged-out off-roader]], pointing out various mods the driver uses to make up for his "inferiority complex". She's proven right when the off-roader swerves at the last second to avoid getting hit and runs into a cliff.

* One of the group victory quotes of ''VideoGame/TalesofXillia2'' has its resident BFS wielders [[TheAtoner Alvin]] and [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking Gaius]] perform [[SwordBeam Demon Fangs]] one after another with Gaius' being larger. Alvin immediately says he feels inadequate, and Gaius informs him that the difference is in the size of the blade.
