* ''Manga/{{Golgo 13}}''. This is a BerserkButton for the normally stoic and professional Golgo 13. The very few occasions when he makes a mistake usually involve his instinctive response to this. He always stands with his back to the wall when meeting new clients, and when someone came behind him during one meeting, he shot the guy. It was his client's assistant.

** These people generally never go through haunted houses or other similar Halloween events for this very reason. Even prepared for the scare, they know they're prone to break whatever tries to scare them.

* 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 ''Manga/ElfenLied'' example above.
