** In both ''Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF'' and ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', Whis tells Vegeta that he's relatively slow because he wastes time thinking about his moves.



* In ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2'', Yondu says that he controls his flying arrow not with his thoughts, but with his heart. Later, [[spoiler:Peter Quill manages to use the Celestial powers he inherited from his father this way.]]



* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' When the crew invades a skyplex to rescue TheCaptain, secondary defence of the ship relies on [[GoodShepherd a shepherd]], [[TheMedic a doctor]], [[WrenchWench a mechanic]] and a [[TheOphelia mentally traumatised young girl]]. At the time, Book is the only one with ''known'' combat training. Although Simon does try hard to help, Book ends up having to advise him that he's thinking too much and should just go with the shot. In the end, it doesn't help. Simon still can't hit the broad side of a barn. [[spoiler: His sister, on the other hand... [[PsychicPowers does feel it]].]]

* Comicbook/SpiderMan does not have a mentor but his SpiderSense can be tuned to the point in which he reacts based on this sixth sense, letting go of any thoughts. He'll even close his eyes during this time, allowing himself to act on instinct. This usually comes during very emotional or dangerous situations. One example would be when he defeated Wolverine's son, {{ComicBook/Daken}}, who has empath powers.

* In ''FanFic/ThisBites'', Ace's instructions to the crew on how to unlock Haki follow this vein:
--> '''Observation's Haki:''' Listen really hard.
--> '''Armament's Haki:''' Concentrate willpower really hard.
--> '''Conqueror's Haki:''' Hell if I know, I've always just gone with my f%cking gut!
** It's hard to tell if he was trolling Cross or actually trying to explain; a very furious Cross believes it's the former, but Zoro thought that the directions were reasonable.

* Used in ''Literature/TheKingkillerChronicle'' to explain the magical art of Naming: practitioners have to gain an intuitive grasp of ''everything'' about the object they're Naming, which is explicitly too much to process consciously. To explain, the instructor challenges the class to calculate exactly where a ball will land when he throws it; he lets them struggle in vain with the math, then lobs the ball at someone in the hallway, who catches it without thinking.

* There's implication that this trope was used in {{MAR}} after Ginta and Jack are trained for the second time, which is during the War Games. Their master is asked what they were taught and in response launches a pebble at each of them. They both dodge despite being shot at from behind. The humor is explored with Jack catching the stone.. and then rolling around on the ground because the pebble was moving at such speed that being stupid enough to catch the thing hurt.
