* ''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.]]

* Hober Mallow's strategy for the war against Korell in Literature/{{Foundation}} consists of ''not'' making any major offences. The Foundation defends its territory, but that's basically all. How does this work to win the Foundation the war? [[spoiler: Korell is economically dependent on the Foundation -- thanks to Hober Mallow, as it happens -- and so Korell finds itself without any population-unifying bombardments, just a steadily worsening economy and quality of life as more and more things shut down without spare parts from the Foundation.]]

* ''TheSimpsons'': A halloween episode included the story "Attack of the 50-Foot Eyesores," about [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever giant advertising mascots]] that come to life and destroy Springfield. As discovered by Lisa and Paul Anka (!), the key to survival is "just don't look." Because any ad that doesn't get attention, quickly vanishes.

* ''WhatsNewScoobyDoo'': an egotistical computerized house appears as the villain. The only way to make it stop was to completely ignore it, causing it to overheat in its efforts to get attention.
