Note that in RealLife, this [[WorstAid is a very bad idea]] because the knife sticking in the wound slows down the bleeding considerably. Pulling it out runs a high risk of bleeding yourself to death within minutes. Additionally, touching the lodged blade can result in you surviving the stab wound only to finish the job yourself by cutting into something important inside. (Imagine, for example, someone stabs you in the chest but manages to miss anything vital. You start yanking on the blade to try removing it and it creates a back and forth sawing motion, cutting right through a lung or massive blood vessel. NiceJobBreakingItHero.)

* In ''ComicBook/RobynHood: I Love NY'' #11, Robyn stabs Fuchs [[ImpaledPalm through the palm]] with a piece of splintered wood. This doesn't even slow Fuchs down, as he pulls the shard out of his hand and slashes Robyn with it.

* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', Captain Buccaneer was stabbed by [[spoiler:Wrath]], but managed to yank the sword off his hand with his uber abs. Later on, he pulled this trope despite being warned not to and died shortly after. However, considering he managed to cripple [[spoiler:Wrath]] with said blade, it also counts as HeroicSacrifice

* [[ComicBook/{{Batwoman}} Kate Kane]] does it in the final volume of ''ComicBook/FiftyTwo'', [[spoiler:pulling a sacrificial knife out of her own chest to throw it at Bruno Mannheim, who (almost) performed the sacrifice]]. Note that she ''does'' recognize it as a stupid idea that almost costs her her life, but does it anyway because [[spoiler:[[HeroicSacrifice her lover Renee's life is more important to her]]]].

* The PlayerCharacter Soap does it near the end of ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare2'' to [[spoiler:[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome kill General Shepherd with the same knife he stabbed him in the chest with]]]]. However, this ends up being a thoroughly DeconstructedTrope. The game makes a point to have it come out slowly and agonizingly, and it was clearly a last resort. In fact, in the third game, he almost dies from it, flatlining during the prologue, and there's a level where you have to get him to safety before he bleeds out. [[spoiler:The wound later reopens and ultimately kills him]].
