->'''Loki:''' Kneel before me. I said... KNEEL! (''people in the crowd kneel'') Is not this simpler? Is this not your natural state? It's the unspoken truth of humanity that you crave subjugation. The bright lure of freedom diminishes your life's joy in a mad scramble for power. For identity. You were made to be ruled. In the end, you will always kneel.\\

* PlayedForLaughs in ''SonicUnleashed'', Eggman is terrorizing the citizens of [[DarkestAfrica Mazuri]], demanding to know the location of the Gaia Temple. One of the children screams at him "WE'RE NOT TELLING YOU ANYTHING!" and chucks a rock at Eggman, hitting him in the head. While the kid's parents hide him from Eggman, his ServileSnarker robot can be seen laughing.

* In ''Film/SupermanII'', the residents of Metropolis march on the three Kryptonians when it seems like Superman was killed, despite the fact they could wipe them out with a single look.
* In ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', an older German refuses to bow to Loki, saying he remembers the pettiness [[UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler of those]] who force others into submission.

* Lampshaded in ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife''. Even though they've got enough food for the winter, Hopper insists on his gang of grasshoppers going back to intimidate the ant colony as usual, because a single ant (the protagonist Flik) stood up to him. To demonstrate why, he throws a seed at one of the dissenting minions and asks if that hurt. The minion laughs it off. He throws a second seed, which is also laughed off. Then Hopper knocks the lid off the seed container and [[BadBoss buries them under a huge pile of seeds]].
-->'''Hopper:''' You let one ant stand up to us, then they all might stand up! Those puny little ants outnumber us a hundred to one and if they ever figure that out there goes our way of life! It's not about food, it's about keeping those ants in line. That's why we're going back!

[[AC:WesternAnimation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' has this in the first season episode "Imprisoned". Earthbenders are being kept prisoner in an ocean rig / TailorMadePrison devoid of all stone and earth to keep them from [[DishingOutDirt Earthbending]]. After Aang and then Katara give an inspirational speech, no one acts because of their broken spirits. However Haru tosses the first stone in defiance and soon all the Earthbenders rise up to resist. And since Aang and co had previously supplied a huge pile of coal for them to Earthbend, [[{{Pun}} things got very dirty very fast]] for their captors.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' has one second season episode show this prominently. The {{Muggles}} in a subway car spend most of the episode berating ComicBook/CaptainAmerica for betraying humanity (it was a Skrull) ''as [[UngratefulBastard he is leading them to safety]]''. However, by the end when he's about to fall to the Serpent Society (who've pretty much said they want to kill the muggles}) they [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming all pelt the villains]] and distract them enough with supportive cries to give Cap a chance.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Exosquad}}'' episode "Resist!", JT Marsh calls out to the people of Earth to resist the newly-formed Neosapien regime, even though the Terran fleet is routed and must flee to the outer planets.
* Subverted in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'' that had Megabyte threaten a group of binomes with assimilation into his viral forces, but a Picard-{{Expy}} binome refused with a line out of the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' movies. Megabyte promptly vaporizes him and all the other binomes surrendered.

* The Palestinians are/were famous for this during [[UsefulNotes/ the two Intifadas]] (the First in TheEighties and the Second at the TurnOfTheMillennium), throwing stones at [[UsefulNotes/IsraelisWithInfraredMissiles Israeli tanks and heavily armed and armored Israeli soldiers]], as well as the bulldozers and other construction equipment brought in to build IDF fortifications and Israeli settlements. These days it doesn't happen as much, since the West Bank is walled off and is in an uneasy peace with Israel, while Gaza fights with the occasional (or during major operations, not-so-occasional) rocket. Also, the Palestinians did fight with standard weaponry and, of course [[SuicideAttack suicide bombs]], (particularly in the Second Intifada), so the [[PoliticallyCorrectHistory "rocks v. tanks" image some like to paint]] isn't exactly what you'd call accurate.
