* Subverted in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' when Ichigo roars, "Shut up!" after Ginjo gave a BreakThemByTalking. Ginjo mocks him and says attempting a ShutUpHannibal by simply telling the other person to shut up means you have no argument to counter the other person's words. Ichigo informs him that he was telling ''Uryu'' to shut up, then expertly refutes Ginjo's argument.
