** In ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', Benny despite being a [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder backstabbing sleaze ball]] the entire game, if he escapes the Tops after you confront him and is captured by The Legion and left completely at your mercy, he'll keep his cool the entire time, even chuckling at the {{irony}} if you decide to execute him with his own gun, [[KarmicDeath just like he tried to do to you when you first met him in the opening cut scene]]. He's also thrilled if you choose to face him the Legion's arena; House explains that before he "civilised" the Boot Rider tribe into becoming the Chairmen we know today, they would fight each other in honor [[DuelToTheDeath duels to the death]] to resolve disputes over things like leadership, which is how Benny became Chief.

* Kinda adverted, but in the series finale of ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', the reporter Shandra Jimenez [[spoiler: broke into Bill Cipher's lair, and when she was being turned into stone by an eyebat, she just accepts it, probably knowing that it would happen eventually.]] This is later adverted again with [[spoiler: Bill who ''freaks out'' when he is being erased from inside Stan's mind]]
