* The page quote from ''Anime/KillLaKill'' is between [[TheDragon Nui Harime]] and Professor Isshin Matoi. Nui had come to get Prof. Matoi's prized research and was introduced to the [[{{BFS}} Rending Shears, a giant pair of scissors]] able to cut life fibers. After a short brawl, Nui stabs the old professor with the very scissors he touted as the product of his life's work. However, this is a subversion, as the scissors are actually ''not'' Prof. Matoi's greatest work. He claimed they were so Nui will set her sights on them, thus successfully hiding the Kamui Senketsu, the true product of his life's work.

Also, [[BadassGrandpa he'd managed to]] ''[[EyeScream put out her eye]]'' before she finished the job, rather souring her boast.

* [[AxCrazy Devo the Cursed]] ([[DubNameChange named Soul Sacrifice in the English version]]) in Part 3 of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' brags about how he's going to bite Polnareff's balls off during his fight with him. Disgusted with how vulgar he is, Polnareff finishes him off in a manner that leaves him a completely mutilated, unrecognizable mess...''except'' for his crotch.
** [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] by Kars after he [[spoiler: becomes the UltimateLifeform and unlocks the ability to use [[ThePowerOfTheSun Hamon]]]].
-->'''Kars:''' To think that I would annihilate [[spoiler: a practitioner of Hamon]] with his own discipline... Surely you can appreaciate the irony in that!
*** And then the trope gets turned around on him several times over. [[spoiler: The Red Stone of Aja, the item that made it possible for him to become the UltimateLifeform, is used to block the attack, triggering a volcanic eruption that sends him flying outside the atmosphere. And when he tries to fly away, he gets delayed by Joseph's severed hand, which he himself severed, long enough for volcanic debris to hit him and ensure he leaves the Earth. And finally, the AdaptiveAbility granted to him by his status as the UltimateLifeform turns him to stone to protect him from the vacuum of space, preventing him from returning, and leaving him [[AndIMustScream forever drifting through space, alone and unable to move.]]]]

* In ''Literature/TheMadKing'', King Leopold several times has his bacon saved by his American cousin Barney performing an EmergencyImpersonation, but instead of being grateful he becomes obsessed by the idea that Barney will one day perform a permanent switch and steal his life. Near the end of the novel, he tries himself to steal Barney's life (specifically, to gain the hand of the woman they both love but who loves only Barney) by impersonating Barney -- just at the point when the villains decide their best course is to try and get back in the king's good books by assassinating that American he's so obsessed with...
