** If you look in the basement of Black-Briar Manor, you can find an unsent letter from Maven to the head of the Dark Brotherhood complaining about the lack of response to her performance of the Black Sacrament. [[spoiler:The Dark Brotherhood ''can't'' respond to the Black Sacrament because there's no Listener to mediate between the Night Mother and the rest of the Brotherhood. By the time the Dark Brotherhood has a Listener again...it's you.]]

[[spoiler:The Dark Brotherhood ''can't'' respond to the Black Sacrament because there's no Listener to mediate between the Night Mother and the rest of the Brotherhood. They have to rely on rumors of people performing the Black Sacrament to sniff out their contracts, and apparently Maven has been a little too secretive about it.

* ''Series/DoctorWho''. In the famous CliffHanger in Part 3 of "The Caves of Androzani", mercenary commander Stotz shouts IllKillYou when the Doctor hijacks their spacecraft. The Doctor points out that it's not much of a threat to someone who's dying anyway (the Doctor having been poisoned earlier).

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': Homer Simpson, being the [[HairTriggerTemper rageaholic]] that he is, is about as familiar with this trope as he is {{Angrish}}. You know it's bad when he once threatened to kill both Bart and ''[[DidntThinkThisThrough the rest of Bart's family]].''
-->'''Bart''': If Dad killed everyone he talked about killing, would any of us be here?
-->'''Homer''': [[HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood You'd be dead a million times]].

* In ''Film/InOrderOfDisappearance'', Nils Dickman works his way up the chain of the drug gang that murdered his son. Three consecutive mooks, having had the identity of the next guy up the chain beaten out of them, try to salvage their egos by threatening Nils' life, whereupon he kills each one and dumps the body in a remote mountain river, never to be found.

* Heero Yuy of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'' is this website's [[Pantheon/{{Calmness}} designated patron saint]] for this trope. Over the course of the series he threatens to kill several characters -- [[{{Ojou}} Relena]] most famously, but also [[TheRival Zechs]], and [[TheWoobie Quatre]] (when crazy due to the ZERO System). It's a running gag among the fandom, but the show implies that Heero, as a [[HitmanWithAHeart former assassin who's growing a conscience]], is trying to convince ''himself'' to be able to kill people he's grown to care for.

* In ''Theatre/LesMiserables'', Javert and the unnamed and unseen French soldier both make promises that the revolutionaries will not survive their revolution. The first time the soldier threatens them, Enjolras responds with a rousing reprise of "Red and Black" with the words "Damn their warnings, damn their lies/We will see the people rise!" that the other students join in. When Javert says "death to each and every traitor/I renounce your people's court!", the students respond by either knocking him out, tying him up, or both, depending on the production. However, by the French soldier's final warning, the revolutionaries have realized their impending doom and decide that the only course of action is to take down as many soldiers as they can, turning it from this trope into YouWillNotSurvive.
