* In ''Film/TheMatrix'', Neo proclaims "I know kung-fu" after he has martial arts abilities uploaded into his brain. This is more a boast than a threat though.

* In the original version of ''Film/GameOfDeath'', the Hapkido master (Ji Han Jae) is the only one of the fighters to warn the heroes that fighting with him will result in death. This is very bizarre, as he should know already that they're accomplished martial artists and he's alone and they are a crowd of three.
---> '''Ji Han Jae''': As you gentlemen know, red means danger. Therefore I advice to you people, not to step into this warning arena. If you want to go on living, stop here, go back downstairs. Life is precious.

* [[Characters/ClassicDisneyShorts José Carioca once tried to scare a bunch of criminals by claiming to be a good UsefulNotes/{{Capoeira}} fighter, only to learn one of the criminals was a master of that art. He then claimed to know UsefulNotes/{{Karate}} and was told another criminal of the bunch was a black belt.

* Subverted in ''VideoGame/GateKeepers'' anime: Kageyama Reiji did this complete with throwing his jacket to the air for a good montage, even without the lines. When the jacket drops back on his hand, the thugs seemed to be hurt, until he himself collapsed. Though, [[spoiler: he's actually the BigBad, but a DangerouslyGenreSavvy one trying to achieve a VillainWithGoodPublicity status]].

* ''[=PunkinPussAndMushmouse=]'': Mushmouse once practiced Judo with a dummy and then tried to fight Punkin Puss and warned him about knowing judo. However, as Punkin Puss explained after defeating Mushmouse, he wasn't a dummy.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo'', Johnny goes out with ThePresidentsDaughter, who later grows tired of Johnny's ignorance of American heritage and calls for two bodyguards to get rid of him. Johnny reacts by stating he's a black belt, but the two guys know at least a dozen forms of martial arts, beat him up, and stuff him in a box under the Pentagon.

* ''Armageddon Trilogy'' book by RobertRankin. This exact line is said repeatedly by Music/{{Elvis|Presley}} (yes, ''that'' Elvis). In the books Elvis constantly makes reference to his character from the movie Roustabout, in which he knew Karate (it goes with the 'sickle).
