* [[ASongOfIceAndFire Shagga, son of Dolf]] claims his axe is so sharp that he once cut off a man's head without the man realizing it until he went to brush his hair. Tyrion muses that this is why Shagga never brushes his.

A DramaticPause used for action scenes. The hero (or villain) punches his foe. Dramatic Pause... and a giant explosion obliterates him. Or, the hero swings his sword. Dramatic Pause... object/opponent falls to two pieces. This is not like using a TimeBomb, where a delay is deliberate. This is [[YouFailPhysicsForever ignoring the laws of physics]] for the sake of [[RuleOfDrama dramatic]] [[RuleOfCool effect]]. For all intents and purposes, the attack was over when the punch landed... the resulting effect simply decided to wait a few seconds before showing up.
