* One could make a drinking game out of every time the MonsterOfTheWeek on ''Series/DoctorWho'' said something along the lines of, "He's just one man! WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong? Nobody could stop me now!" As it happens, the universe is ''littered'' with the bodies of people who underestimated the Doctor.
** For context, take a look at one of his {{Badass Boast}}s from the episode ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS36E6Extremis Extremis]]'':

-->'''Supreme Commander Servalan:''' Gentlemen, I share the President's grave concern. And I am aware of the danger should Blake become a legend. But let us keep this matter in its correct perspective. It is true that Blake has command of a superb space vehicle, but he is just a man, backed by a handful of criminals, and that is all. He is not invulnerable, nor is he superhuman. He is just a man, who has been extremely lucky to evade capture... so far.

** Breen is commenting not only on Gordon Freeman being a OneManArmy, but also on him being a BadassBystander, "not some agent provocateur or highly trained assassin".
