* In ''Litearture/{{Worm}}'' the [[{{Kaijuu}} Endbringers]] are always holding back when fighting. Every time they're sufficiently injured or hindered they'll bring out a new ability to mix things up.

* Competitor Marvel's flagship character {{Spider-Man}} does something similar to Superman, too, albeit at a much lower level; after all, Spidey collars ordinary crooks almost as often as he clashes with super-villains (one of which actually has human-level toughness), and using his full strength to punch out a non-superpowered bank robber would end up rather messy. Often, he avoids this simply by webbing up normal guys rather than fighting them directly. A rare example of his actually taking the kid-gloves off occurred ''ComicBook/InOneMoreDay'' when he was goaded by ''ComicBook/TheKingpin'', someone who had always been considered a worthy match for him before - but not now. With nothing left to lose, [[CurbStompBattle Spidey wiped the floor with him]], letting every witness (and there were ''plenty'') know he could have done that ''any'' time he had wanted.

* In the ''Flash: Rebirth'' series, Superman is chasing after Barry Allen, when Superman begins talking about the races they've done in the past. Barry responds with "Those were for charity, Clark," and immediately speeds off, leaving Superman dumbfounded and far, far behind.

* ''XenaWarriorPrincess'': Joxer pulls this, in an almost word-for-word sendup of the famous scene from ''Film/ThePrincessBride'', while fighting under a spell cast by Aphrodite that turns him from TheScrappy to TheLancer at the ring of a bell.

* ''EverybodyLovesRaymond'': After Ray loses a ping-pong match with his father, his father reminds him that "it's a good thing he wasn't using his good hand" and switches his paddle to the other hand.

* In ''SpinCity'', it is a rule that when you play racquetball against the mayor, you lose (intentionally). But then Charley is stressed out because of his work and the mayor taunts him one too many times. Charley switches his racket from his left to his right and gruesomely beats the mayor.

* Used in {{Cricket}}. While a batsman's handedness is usually known to everyone by the time they get to top level, sufficiently nimble ones can switch stances while the bowler is in mid-bowl (mid-pitch). Since players on the field in cricket are positioned asymmetrically, this completely throws off the attempted formation.

** It is also used as an explanation of why Ryo turned out the way [[VillainProtagonist he is]]. Yes, folks - he's evil 'cause he's left handed.

* Can be invoked when battling in a ''Franchise/Pokemon'' game. Whenever some boss, such as the champion, evil team leader, etc. sends out their last pokemon as a last resort, as a general rule, it's usually the most powerful. Taken even further in generation six and onward, as mega evolution and primal reversion are introduced as game mechanics. A boss NPC can have their last pokemon mega eveolve, because why not? And an ancient pokemon undergoing [[ThisWasHisTrueForm primal]] [[OhCrap reversion]] is actually returning it to the overpowered form it once was a long time ago.
