* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8429437/15/The-Perils-of-Innocence The Perils of Innocence]]'' Dr. Aymler tries to greet a goblin guard outside Gringotts by shaking hands.

* ''Series/BlakesSeven''. In "Power", Avon is captured by the leader of a primitive society, and grabs his arm to stop him hitting his wife. As their society is based on AsskickingEqualsAuthority as well as misogyny, he naturally assumes that Avon is [[ThrowingDownTheGauntlet challenging him for leadership]].

* The war with the buggers in ''Literature/EndersGame'' started because of this. It is not uncommon for for them to kill others of their kind to send a message; as they are a HiveMind, the life of any one individual is meaningless to them. When they first made contact with a human spaceship, they killed everyone on board, under the same reasoning. Humans took this as an act of aggression.

* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' episode "Shindig": Mal hauls off and decks Atherton Wing after the latter hits the former's BerserkButton by implying that Inara is a whore (only Mal gets to call her that). Turns out that punching someone in a social function on that planet is considered a formal challenge, and Mal ends up having to fight a sword duel over her honor. Use of a swhat?

* ''Creator/NoahAntwiler'' once recounted a tale of the one time he played LegendOfTheFiveRings where his ignorance of the setting's customs (and the other players' unwillingness to explain them) led to him being challenged to a duel that he promptly lost.
