* In ''Film/TheRightStuff'', one of the early scenes shows Trudy Cooper, wife of Gordo Cooper, airing her fears for her husband's safety as a test pilot to Betty Grissom, wife of Gus Grissom. This was when the two eventual astronauts were test pilots at Edwards Air Force Base. Sadly, Betty Grissom would be the one to become a widow when Gus died in the Apollo 1 fire.

* Used humorously in ''Anime/DragonBall'' at the end of the Red Ribbon Army saga. Goku's friends raced towards the [[=RRA=]'s base after Goku, worried that he was getting slaughtered by attacking the army head on. [[JawDrop Their reaction]] when they find out that the CurbStompBattle was [[OneManArmy the other way around]] is priceless.

*** Another painful example from that same flash occurs when Rose meets [[spoiler: what's left of the Wayward Vagabond's army; as we already know at this point, the Wayward Vagabond lost his entire army except these particular survivors and decided to exile himself because he felt like a failure. When we meet the survivors of his army, however, they reveal that they idolize and admire WV (a couple of them even [[{{Fangirl}} have crushes on him]]) and wait for him to return to lead them to victory. And then, to add insult to injury, [[BigBad Jack]] shows up and [[KillEmAll slaughters them all]]]].
