* This is the BattleThemeMusic for ''VideoGame/Persona5'', and fits several of the bosses' opinions of the Phantom Thieves as well. Certainly mob bosses and CorruptCorporateExecutive types never think a group of [[YouMeddlingKids meddling kids]] and an anthropomorphic cat could destroy their perfectly orchestrated machinations.

* It's an invoked RunningGag in ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'' between Quicksilver and Hawkeye that plays to the RuleOfThree. The first two times are snarky, with Barton's being an IronicEcho, and the third is played for drama [[spoiler: when Quicksilver saves Barton's life and that of the child he was protecting, making this trope also his LastWords]].

* In ''[[Literature/CiaphasCain Cain's Last Stand]]'', [[spoiler: Varan didn't know that Cain's aide, Jurgen, was a [[AntiMagic blank]], so when he met up with Cain to discuss [[ISurrenderSuckers the terms of surrender]], the psychic ability that allowed him to instantly convert people to his cause wouldn't work.

First [[spoiler:hero's [[TalkingAnimal talking]] [[TeamPet pig]] ]] jumped in front of his sure-to-kill attack, saving main character.

The two are forced to admit that the real losers this time is ''them'']].

** The Dragonborn can potentially end up throwing a huge wrench into the Thalmor's plans for Skyrim by siding with either faction: either they face a reunited and re-invigorated Empire, or a still fairly powerful and not-being-continually-drained Cyrodiil and a rather powerful and ''[[ScrewYouElves very]]'' hostile independent Skyrim, and either winner also gets a new ally in the form of a PhysicalGod.
