May result in the invocation of BigDamnHeroes if the good guy is [[OhCrap in too deep]]. Conversely, should the hero do better than expected, the villain may realize that [[GonnaNeedMoreX he needs reinforcements]] and [[WeHaveReserves act accordingly]]. At any rate, the use of this trope can demonstrate that the villain is sufficiently DangerouslyGenreSavvy to know not to fight the hero one-on-one when he can bring in his minions to support him.

** [[VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} III's Expansion orc campaign has another example. Rexxar challenges the Kor'gall for leadership of the Stonemaul. Supposedly a one-on-one fight. However, [[TheBeastmaster this is Rexxar we're talking about]]. The fight usually devolves into a small zoo's worth of animals dogpiling Kor'gall.

* ''Film/TheAvengers'' has ComicBook/BlackWidow visiting [[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk Bruce Banner]] with assurances it's only the two of them. Then he shows a flash of anger because he "wanted to see what she'd do." (What she does is immediately point a handgun at him.) Once it's clear he's not turning into an enormous green rage-monster, she tells the veritable SWAT team outside that they can stand down.

* In the James Bond film ''Film/GoldenEye'', General Ourumov kills Defense Minister Dimitri Mishkin after he accuses Ourumov of being responsible for the attack on Severnaya and theft of the Goldeneye key. Ourumov invokes this trope as he openly states his plan to cover up the murder.
-->'''Ourumov:''' "Defense Minister Dimitri Miskin, murdered by British agent James Bond...himself shot, while trying to escape. GUARDS!"

* ''WebVideo/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'': when Karamazov tries to enter the palace, Descius stands in his way and summons palace guard to aid him, although Karamazov's weaponized throne proves more than a match for all of them. Later, Kitten does the same with Custodes, with much more success.
