A subtrope of CasualDangerDialog. Contrast MidBattleTeaBreak, where the opponents are perfectly happy to let the distracted party take a break from the fight. Compare ExcuseMeWhileIMultiTask where the one taking the call uses it to showcase how much better they are at close combat than their opponent.

* ''VideoGame/DeadSpace2'': Twice, Isaac gets calls when he's up to his ass in Necromorphs. The first time, when Nicole calls him, he simply yells "Not now!" and hangs up on her. The second time, Isaac's fighting off even more Necromorphs on top of a subterranean drill. Ellie calls Isaac to ask him if he's okay, to which Isaac sarcastically replies "Oh yeah! Good times!" and hangs up.

* One commercial for Trident chewing gum shows a man sitting in the jury box during a trial when his cell phone starts ringing. "Uh-oh, Jay, should've put that phone on silent," intones the announcer. Supposedly, Trident gum makes Jay's innocent smile so brilliant that everyone else will ignore the racket in his pocket. [[NoSell Not happening, Jay.]] Viewable on Youtube:[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zc0IyM19iXM]].

* Inverted in ''Film/{{Transformers}}'' (2007). It's {{justified|Trope}}, though, as well as a CrowningMomentOfFunny. Captain Lennox tries to make a call to ThePentagon while his (dwindling) men fight off Scorponok. The justification comes from Bay's military advisors listing similar issues soldiers had while trying to connect to the Pentagon mid-battle.
