* In ''Life During Wartime'', a canon sidestory to ''Fanfic/NeonMetathesisEvangelion'', two thugs try to mug Kaworu, Kensuke and Mana at night, thinking them easy prey. However, Mana has been fully trained by the JSSDF in close quarter combat, and unlike the ''other'' sort of training she has received, that one has always come easily to her. The thugs have no chance.

Basically this is when some [[BitPartBadGuys random crook]], and occasionally [[StupidCrooks a pretty stupid one]] at that, has the misfortune of targeting someone [[StrongerThanTheyLook much more powerful than he assumed]]. When the monster/alien assassin/robot/ [[SorcerousOverlord sorcerer]] from the future/[[MageInManhattan other world]]/[[GalacticConqueror space]] appears, the criminal acts as a [[AcceptableTarget disposable]] [[MonsterMunch victim]] they can demonstrate their powers on for the benefit of the audience. Alternatively, TheHero is held up while going about their business. If they have a SecretIdentity, then it can lead to a BruceWayneHeldHostage scenario, but if the [[IdiotBall criminal attacked them in costume]] or the hero is just some badass WalkingTheEarth, then it typically just serves as an introduction. Bonus points if the would be victim looks particularly vulnerable.
