* Deconstructed in ''Film/TheDevilsRejects''. As [[VillainProtagonist Otis]] is about to kill a man he has kidnapped, the man insults Otis... who mocks him for it, calling it a meaningless gesture that doesn't make him any less of a powerless victim. Otis then proceeds with the killing like it never happened.

* During the Salem Witch Trials, suspected witches were ([[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crushing_(execution) sometimes literally]]) pressured to plead either guilty or not guilty so the trial could commence and then have the accused reveal the names of others supposedly involved in witchcraft, which kept the cycle of trials going. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giles_Corey Giles Corey]] refused to plea either guilty or not guilty, knowing [[MortonsFork he was more than likely to be found guilty and executed no matter how he plead]]. He [[{{Badass}} would only call out "More weight!"]] whenever the townsfolk demanded he plea, and as a result his trial never officially commenced and he was thus able to die in full possession of his estate, which would otherwise have been forfeited to the government had he been found guilty.

Some can pull this off without dying, with [[IShallTauntYou their taunts serving to throw the captor off-balance]]. Either this angers them into making a mistake that will enable escape, or to distract them to give the BigDamnHeroes time to do their thing. Sometimes you might even get a TakingYouWithMe too for the ultimate in defiant acts before impending defeat.

* ''TabletopGames/Warhammer40K'':
** The Imperium in general has been likened to a man hanging from a cliff by his fingernails, watched and jeered at by the various cosmic horrors of the setting. He ''could'' use his free hand ta hang on a bit longer, but then he'd have nothing to flip them off with.
** Warboss Tuska was an ork with a dream of finding the best fights, and reasoned that the best place to find them was in the Eye of Terror. He did just that, leading his Waaagh! on an interplanetary rampage through the biggest NegativeSpaceWedgie in the galaxy, until they finally met their match on a daemon world of the Blood Prince, a Daemon Prince of Khorne.
--> Eventually Tuska was impaled through the gut by his adversary and pinned to the ground by its cloven hoof. In triumph, the Blood Prince screamed its praise to Khorne, but whilst it was distracted, the warband's remaining Weirdboys unleashed a storm of psychic energy upon the deamon. It roared in rage at their impudence, crushing their minds with a gesture. With his final act, Tuska reached up between the creature's legs with his power klaw and [[GroinAttack made a gesture of his own.]]
:: As punishment, the orks are resurrected every day to fight again. [[WarriorHeaven Talk about missing the point.]]
