* In the 2016 remake of ''[[TheMagnificentSeven2016 The Magnificent Seven]]'', this trope is combined with a BaitAndSwitchGunshot. While Chisholm is monologuing and prolonging Bogue's strangulation, Bogue is busily fishing a derringer out of his pocket with which to shoot Chisholm. Emma shows up just in time to shoot Bogue before Bogue can shoot Chisholm. Played with in that [[ActionGirl Emma]] comes up behind Chisholm and not Bogue in order to deliver the fatal shot.

* In ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'', when the anachronic storyline finally gets around to showing us some context on [[AwesomeMcCoolName Jacuzzi Splot]] it's to see him in an alley, reasonably enough but a little overeffusively cowering and weeping in front of three guys with guns, begging them to put the guns down. They're rather puzzled because they were expecting a {{badass}}. Then it gets weird.
