* ''Film/FreddyVsJason'' had a local GovernmentConspiracy involving a massive cover up of everything Freddy Krueger had done, down to interring all the surviving kids in an asylum and medicating them so they can't have dreams, because Freddie gets his power from kids being afraid of him. Freddy averts this trope by setting lose ''another'' [[Franchise/FridayThe13th serial killer]], causing the kids to hear about Freddie when the RevealingCoverup begins to unravel due to the adults wondering if Freddy is back.

* The final issue of ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'', significantly titled "[[WhatIf If...]]", at one point had Paperinik and the US Army face an army of Evronian {{Super Soldier}}s with immense strength (enough to tear through tank armor ''bare-handed'' that, having been created with [[{{Jerkass}} Angus Fangus]]' DNA, have an uncanny ability to find and [[EmotionEater feed on negative emotions]], with them being defeated this way the moment Paperinik realizes their immense strength requires their opponents to have hostile thoughts.

Compare SheatheYourSword, where the only way to defeat a foe is to not attack it.

* ''Fanfic/TheParselmouthOfGryffindor'': Sometimes on purpose, sometimes unwittingly, this is how Hermione approaches most problems that stumped the characters in canon. Thoroughly ignoring [[TheBully Draco]]'s taunts over and over throughout first year gets them mostly rid of him by Second Year, and Hermione and Ron aren't involved at all in First Year's Troll shenanigans, which end up being easily solved by Peeves.

* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': From [[http://whateleyacademy.net/index.php/content_page/9/163 Ayla and the Late Trevor James Goodkind]]:
--> David was really excited about his birthday party, and about moving up so he was ‘only one year younger than Shrimpy’.\\
“David!” Mother didn’t allow that sort of language in public, much less at the dinner table. “Apologize to your brother at once!”\\
“Mother, it’s all right. I am a shrimp,” I calmly admitted. It wasn’t that I was trying to protect David. No, I was going to be quite happy to see him get in trouble in a few seconds. For several weeks, I had been trying a new strategy: if none of his insults appeared to bother me, he might eventually give up.

* Played with in ''Just Ignore Them''. The title suggests that not acknowledging them will help, Mark's mother suggests to ignore them to make them go away and actually talking about them ''increases'' the risk of them harming you or those around you. [[spoiler: But they are manifactured beings that aim at specific people for specific reasons, so ignoring them is '''not''' an option, if you are their target or in their way]]. This shows quite well when [[spoiler: the pilot and all business class passengers around Mark got killed]], yet [[spoiler: Neason from economy and Brea who had been on the toilet]] didn't even notice anything happening.

* In ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'', a group of lesser villains form a superhero team of their own to steal Ben's thunder. Rather than fight or even expose them, Ben just puts himself on the sidelines, even going as far as to watch paint dry. Sure enough, without Ben to unite against, the villains' clashing egos causes the team to fall apart, [[GenreSavvy which was what Ben was gambling on.]]
