* ''BloomCounty'', "The Great Bloom County Snake Massacre". Several main characters set out to kill a snake at the local swimming hole. In one strip Binkley was carrying a club when the groundhog Portnoy came up behind him, touched his shoulder and said "See anything?"

* The "Berserk" disadvantage in ''{{GURPS}}'', in addition to everything else the disadvantage entails (rabidly attacking every enemy on hand with whatever weapon is on hand), also conveys this, treating anyone trying to restrain the character, friend or enemy, as an enemy. Earlier editions nicknamed the berserker rage "the Doom of the North" for this very reason.

* Occurs very early on during V4 of SurvivalOfTheFittest when Reika Ishida approaches Kris Hartmann from behind and tries talking to her. Startled by the voice, Kris immediately responds by spinning round and shooting Reika in the chest. In v3, according to [[AllThereInTheManual his profile]] Carson Baye once punched someone in the face for walking behind him. This is probably a ShoutOut to the ''ElfenLied'' example above.
