* Creator/{{Nintendo}}'s attempt to ban cartridge dumpers and copiers in the 90s: They started by targeting the most prolific manufacturer of cartridge copiers, Bong Enterprises. They went as far as to get an injunction on Bong Enterprises merchandises in the US. They managed to kill Bong Enterprise shortly after, but then numerous manufacturers then sprung up in Bong's place. Additionally, the amount of negative publicity generated resulted in the StreisandEffect (the US Customs also received a number of eggs on their face after they confiscated a package from Bong Enterprises meant for a US customer, and it turns out that the package only contained a GameBoyAdvance link cable), which affected the popularity of their consoles a bit. The funny bit is, Nintendo never learn. They did the same things with flashcarts, with predictable result, and then they went over the MoralEventHorizon by trying this with ''Website/YouTube videos containing their characters'', again with predictable result.

* Edward Snowden: "You're not going to bully me into silence like you've done to everybody else. And if nobody else is gonna do it, I will. And hopefully, when I'm gone, whatever you do to me, there will be somebody else who'll do the same thing. It'll be the sort of internet principle, of the hydra; you can stomp one person, but there's gonna be seven more of us."

** In 5e the only hydra in the monster manual has this ability, sort of. If it looses 25 health in a single turn it losses a head and regrows to more for every head lost in its turn. It only gains a total of 20 points of health back so, without healing, the hydra will eventually die if it heads keep getting cut off.

* ''VideoGame/YouDontKnowJack'' (the UK edition anyway) has a question asking "Suppose you cut off all of the Hydra's heads, all its replacement heads, then half of the new heads, how many heads would there be?" [[note]] A: 54. The host will then say [[DeadpanSnarker "at this point it might be wise to consider a different approach"]] [[/note]]
