* The excuse the residents of the net surf village use when Taichi accuses them of being wimps for hiding when a demon supposedly appears in the nearby net ocean in ''Manga/DigimonVTamer01''. This forces Taichi to rely on a land based Digimon, after teaching him how to swim of course.

** Gandalf is listed in RunOrDie already, but it's worth pointing out that, in the film version, he doesn't just inform them that the Balrog is unstoppable. [[TalkingIsAFreeAction He calmly explains]] what a Balrog actually is while it's coming at them (not as {{Egregious}} as it sounds though, as it wasn't even in visual range), pauses to take a deep breath, looks shaken, and then shouts... ''"RUN!"'' and takes off ahead of the others, while they are still standing there looking at it. Making an about-face in the process.

* Literature/{{Flashman}} runs away in almost every conceivable situation. He'll cheerfully abandon friends to save his skin. For example, in ''Flashman at the Charge,'' while being pursued by Cossacks, he threw a naked woman out of his sledge to lighten the load. (It worked, but the guy driving the sledge was so pissed that he in turn abandoned Flashy when the sledge overturned.)

** A bit of a meta-example shows up in the production of the movies, where the first attempts to shoot large-scale battles between orcs and men using computer simulated armies who, left to their own AI devices, decided [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere the best tactic was to run away from the enemy]].

([[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]: the program was populating the field randomly with orcs, including the direction they were facing, but a bug in the code meant ''any'' direction was valid, including facing away from the opposing army. The orcs were charging a lack of opposition.)

* The "freezing" variant is what Alan Grant recommends in the ''Film/JurassicPark'' movies when confronted with a ''TyrannosaurusRex''. [[IgnoredExpert Whether or not his advice is heeded is another matter,]] such as with a run-in with a sub-adult in ''Film/JurassicParkIII''.

* Depending on who you ask, Barbra losing her mind in the original ''Film/NightOfTheLivingDead'' and going into near-catatonic shock after being attacked and surrounded by flesh-eating zombies whom she watched kill her brother is either sexist... or [[RealityEnsues a perfectly appropriate, understandable, and realistic response for someone who was just attacked and surrounded by flesh-eating zombies and watched them kill her brother.]]
