* A rare non-physical variant of this trope occurs in ''Anime/{{Bakugan}}'''s fourth season. Due to visions of him and Drago being connected to Mag Mel and Razenoid, Dan begins keeping it to himself and things start going south. From Drago losing control to the two of them leaving for New Vestoria without letting Marucho and Shun know beforehand causes a rift in the group. This only gets worse when they head to Gundalia to assist in driving Mag Mel's forces away from the planet where Dan disobeys orders from Marucho (who had elected himself as the new leader as the Brawlers) to not involve himself. After finding Rafe and Wolfurio after the Brawlers got seperated, Dan learns that the reason why his comrades acted the way they did towards him is because they were worried he was taking most of the burden for himself. Once Dan gets the message, [[JerkassRealization he realizes how inconsiderate and arrogant he has been]]. After the initial battle has ended, he pleads to his friends to yell at him for giving them so much trouble. The Brawlers just stare at him in surrpise, but Shun walks towards him, and seeing how he's been with him long enough, Dan expects [[WhatTheHellHero the most brutal lecture]] he believes he deserves. What [[SubvertedTrope subverts]] this trope is that instead of busting his grill, Shun offers his hand to Dan, not only welcoming back him back into the Brawlers, but recognizing him as their leader once more.

* A fairly extreme version occurred in ''Comicbook/{{Runaways}}'', where Nico asked Gert to have her pet raptor bite her, [[BloodyMurder as she has a magical staff that only comes out when she is bleeding]]. When Gert refused, she stuck her hand in the dinosaur's mouth and told it she was going to choke Gert to death. It bit her.

* In the {{Discworld}} of Creator/AAPessimal, Johanna Smith-Rhodes is a walking fighting ActionGirl. On becoming a mother, one of the loving caring maternal things she does is to teach her daughters to fight and use weapons. Her younger daughter is right alongside the idea and eventually follows Mummy to the Assassins' Guild. Her older daughter, however, has no problems at all with blocking, parrying and defending. Rebecka just cannot bring herself to hit her friends, even in a practice bout with a blunted sword. She can also put crossbow bolts with precision into a standard competition target, the one with the rings. She just cannot bear firing at a human-shaped target. Her mother quietly despairs. Until a friend comes up with life-size iconographs of Parsifal Venturi, a young man Rebecka absolutely ''loathes''. And if her opponent in a practice sword-bout is wearing a Parsifal Venturi face-mask... then a whole lot of agression comes out. All at once.

This was done so the EMH could demonstrate a point - that the holographic tech in play can adjust its density from solid (EMH slaps Tom with a solid hand) to intangible (Tom's failed counterattack), with any point in between - needed for a medical plan the EMH had just thought up that Tom couldn't wrap his head around.

* When Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin was named Co-General Manager of ''Wrestling/WWERaw'' in 2003, he wasn't allowed to attack anyone unless physically provoked. He would invoke this trope but it didn't work all the time. Most famously was the night he repeatedly yelled at Scott Steiner to hit him. When Steiner finally did hit him, Austin smiled for a long time before he then beat up Steiner. The segment is better remembered for its finish. After beating up Steiner, Austin invited Stacy Keibler (Steiner's now-former manager) to have a beer with him. Stacy refused as she didn't like the taste of beer. [[DisproportionateRetribution For this, Austin then gave her a Stone Cold Stunner.]]
