When Potter returns and sees Klinger in his predicament and then Charles (listening to his opera records) bellows out a command to him, Potter tells Klinger to "sit this one out...''I'll'' handle Brunhilde!"

* Arp Arslan, second Seljuk sultan, used this trope when [[ISurrenderSuckers a man tried to stab him to death during a surrender]] and ordered his bodyguards not to interfere. Arp Arslan lived just long enough to proclaim to his successor that this trope is a ''really stupid idea''.

* ''TabletopGame/WarhammerFantasy'': Wulfrik the Wanderer once made the imprudent boast of being able to best anyone and anything in single combat. The Chaos gods took him up on it, and now he wanders the world killing powerful champions (he used to resent it, but now that he gets to spend eternity in a flying teleporting ship hunting down WorthyOpponents, he's as happy as can be). His special rule prevents him from declining a challenge, and those he challenges cannot back down ieither (he does this by hurling the crudest insults he can think of in the target's language, which enrages them to the point where they can only think of killing him).

* The Castilian civil war of 1366-1369 ended with this. After the would-be Henry II rooted out Peter the Cruel's last army at the Battle of Montiel, the two claimants to the throne met in Henry's tent and fought in single combat under the close attention of three supporters of each. According to some, Peter was about to win when French mercenary and Henry's supporter Bertrand du Guesclin tripped him, enabling Henry to slay and decapitate his half brother. Du Guesclin commented then that [[BlatantLies he wasn't deciding who was king]], [[ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight just serving his lord]]. Peter's "supporters" were [[FaceHeelTurn surprisingly]] [[HeelFaceTurn OK with]] [[GreyAndGrayMorality this]].

* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'': Roy Mustang decides that he'll deal with Envy alone after he hears how his friend was killed by them. It's unarguably his most terrifying moments in the series.



* Luke Valentine in ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}''. He wants to fight [[EldritchAbomination Alucard]] himself while his brother takes care of the [[RedShirtArmy rest of the good guys]]. Unfortunately for both of them, they both severely underestimate their adversaries.

* Often said by Jigsaw when he is out for ThePunisher.



* In the flashback of the ''{{Tintin}}'' book "The Secret of the [[WoodenShipsAndIronMen Unicorn]]", Red Rackham's lieutenant called dibs on Sir Francis Haddock, but died by his hand. In the animated version, Rackham himself challenges Haddock, so the accidental knockout happens before the duel ends.

* ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'': The titular Winter Soldier has a bunch of guys with machine guns backing him up when he goes after Cap, Black Widow and Falcon. After Nat shoots him, though, he tells his team to handle Steve while he ''personally'' deals with her. (The command's in Russian and unsubtitled, but apparently [[LostInTranslation the translation isn't good]]--he says "I have her," using a verb that implies he has ''physical hold'' of her. And this, children, is why you don't translate idioms literally.)
* Twice in ''Film/DieHard''.
** John [=McClane=] is on the roof, and Karl is going after him, so he tells the other henchmen, "No one kills him but me."
** Hans disarms John, and one of his henchmen is about to shoot John, when Hans says, "Nein! He's mine!"
* After working together to dispatch Angel Eyes' men in ''Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly'', Tuco declares to Blondie that "Angel Eyes is mine." Subverted as Angel Eyes has escaped when they burst into the hideout. Also played with when [[spoiler:Blondie disarmed Tuco the night before the gunfight so he could kill Angel Eyes himself]].



* ''Franchise/StarWars'':
** Darth Vader loves handling things personally. Justified somewhat in ''Film/ANewHope'', in which Darth Vader is the only man on the Death Star with a hope of taking out Obi-Wan Kenobi. Also one of the few successful instances of this trope (albeit with Obi-Wan's cooperation). Vader is also an ace pilot and personally kills many more of the invading Rebel ships than the barrage of gun turrets on the Death Star, so of course he'd want to tell his wingmen to back off and let him handle it. And he says "Leave them to me" ''again'' in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', but that was more a case of "don't screw up our sting operation just yet."
** Used in ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' by General Grievous, also against Obi-Wan, although he wasn't so successful. Again, Grievous was the only person who had even a prayer of taking Obi-Wan down in single combat, but even he was outclassed. It just never occurred to him that a Jedi would use any weapon besides a lightsaber, and he had defeated enough Jedi in the past to be reasonably certain of winning.

* The big demon with a deep voice says this to his underlings in ''Film/IFrankenstein'' during the final battle regarding Adam. [[spoiler:Subverted, as he's immediately picked up by a gargoyle and killed]].
* ''Film/InTheLoop'' has [[MagnificentBastard Malcolm Tucker]] instructing Simon to leave Linton Barwick, the world's most boring psychopath, to him. Obviously a dramatic duel is ''not'' what he had in mind since the film is a political satire, but it ends up subverted anyway when [[spoiler:Malcolm's superiors at Number Ten order him to essentially be Linton Barwick's bitch.]]
* ''Film/TheLegendOfFrenchieKing'': Louise is determined to be the one who deals with Maria in all occasions due to feeling insulted by her, and leaves the latter's brothers for her sisters to deal with.
* The final battle of ''Franchise/TheMatrix'' series, despite being watched by millions of Smith clones, is strictly one-on-one. Of course, Smith had already tried the [[ConservationOfNinjutsu "bury Neo in clones" approach]], so perhaps he just learned his lesson and was going for a different strategy. And he had already foreseen that he was going to win. He could have more fun and enjoy it better, knowing the outcome wasn't in doubt.

* In ''Literature/TheBelgariad'' when [[TheCaligula Taur Urgas]], King of the Murgos faces off against his long hated foe, Cho-Hag of the Algars, he says that Cho-Hag is his and tells his troops to get out of the way. Cho-Hag takes him up on the challenge, and kills him easily. Although we never really see him before the last fight, it's mentioned that he's [[VillainDecay completely lost his mind]] by this point, to the degree that he can't even fight properly anymore. Cho-Hag expresses regret that their battle couldn't have come when he was still competent.
* A heroic version is in ''Literature/BelisariusSeries'' where Rana Sanga by chance runs into Valentinian and realizes that this is a true WorthyOpponent. He waves off help from all the other Rajputs. His army in turn, not having seen a match like this in ages crowds around to watch and shoves away anyone who might get in the way of the fun.
