* ''Manga/IchiTheKiller'' has the fight between Ichi and [[spoiler:Kakihara]] come to a close when [[spoiler:Kakihara]] runs away and tries to jump from one apartment building to another, only to invoke this trope. Although no one comes to stomp on his hand, something even worse happens: a bird comes by and shits on his fingers, causing him to slip and fall to his death.

The trope is often paired with a villain at the ledge [[HandStomp stomping on their hands]] ForTheEvulz or peeling the finger off. When there isn't a villain around, another hero will try to grasp their hands. If PlayedForComedy, the rescuer may themselves fall and have to be grabbed by an even stronger person.
