* In the second ''{{Mistborn}}'' book, apparent [[TheStarscream Starscream]] Zane continually tries to kill [[spoiler: his father]] [[AristocratsAreEvil Straff]], but only because it's what Straff expects, as it's what he'd do if their positions were reversed. Zane never says the trope line out loud, but he does think it to himself during his POV sections.

** The only nation ever to achieve missile lock on the [[RealLife/CoolPlane SR-71]] is the [[UsefulNotes/SwedesWithCoolPlanes Kingdom of Sweden]]. A Saab Viggen pilot (with the help of ground-based radar relaying data to his plane) managed to achieve missile lock on the world's fastest aircraft. The [[TheAce crew]] of the Blackbird in question sent him a congratulatory letter and framed-and-signed certificate in [[WorthyOpponent recognition]] of his [[{{Badass}} achievement]].

* A variant not involving death occurs in Creator/DavidDrake's ''Northworld'' trilogy. Main character Hansen comes to visit GadgeteerGenius Ritter, who's working on a project for him. Ritter isn't getting very far on the project, and he snappishly says something about Hansen checking up on him. Hansen, who's been given [[PhysicalGod godlike powers]], thinks, ''If I wanted to check on you--'' and demonstrates that his powers would let him spy on Ritter completely undetected.

* In ''Flood'' by Creator/AndrewVachss, it's stated that martial arts {{Badass}} Max {{the S|peechless}}ilent is so notorious, no one even laughed when a judge told him he had the right to remain silent during an attempted murder trial.
