* Both {{Invoked}} and {{Subverted}} in ''Manga/TigerMask'': when presenting Tiger's Cave wrestler Gorilla Man, Mr. X describes [[RaisedByWolves the gorillas that originally raised him]] as this trope, but later the CombatCommentator points out they're actually nice and gentle unless provoked, contrasting them to the (apparently) ferocious Gorilla Man. Everyone still agrees that provoking a gorilla (or Gorilla Man) is suicidal.
