** After [[FakeDefector John Snow]] reveals that his defection to [[TheHorde the Wildlings]] was, well, fake, his Wildling lover Iggrite shoots him with three arrows, but neither is fatal, and he escapes. She spends her next scenes obsessively crafting more arrows and making increasingly bloodthirsty proclamations, until her friend Tormund tells her to cut the crap, because if a markswoman like her failed to score a kill ''thrice'', then her heart clearly wasn't in it and despite everyting she still loves John. He's correct.

* The [[AllLovingHero ever affable]] [[{{Trigun}} Vash the Stampede]] has his own way of expressing this trope. When threatened by some would-be thugs in episode 5, he kills their momentum by nailing them all in the face, ''twice'', with a child's plunger-dart gun.

* In one of the PosleenWar novels, Cally O'Neal actually uses this as a legal defense ''in court''. The man she shot claimed she tried to kill him. She claimed that he tried to rape her and she shot him in self-defense. She resolves the argument by taking the jury to a firing range and conclusively proving that if she could have easily killed the man at the range he was shot if she'd wanted to. The man is arrested for attempted rape and posters are put up around town with her picture and the message: WARNING! {{Jailbait}}. To be considered Armed and Dangerous.

Added DiffLines:

* A variant is used in ''[[Literature/AncillaryJustice Ancillary Mercy]]'' when the protagonists discuss why [[TheEmpire the Raadch]] is currently embroiled in a civil war, and the subject is raised whether or not the [[HigherTechSpecies Presger]] might have caused it to weaken humanity. Translator Zeiat (an ArtificialHuman created by the Presger to serve as an ambassador) says this is very unlikely, because if the Presger ''wanted'' to destroy humanity they'd do it in a much more direct, artistic and entertaining fashion than inciting a civil war behind the scenes (for reference, a Presger ''handgun'' is capable of destroying human starships with a single shot. Zeiat is most likely not lying).
