* Geirrod, a Norse robber-king, nearly rode down a lone wanderer on the road to his castle. When the same wanderer came to the castle asking for food and drink, Geirrod allowed him entry as per custom, but demanded he sing for his supper; displeased by the traveler's song lambasting cruel leaders and thieves, he ordered the man burned to death. Unfortunately for Geirrod, [[NorseMythology Odin the All-Father]] is fireproof, and ''very'' unforgiving of false hospitality: he turned the bandit-king and his vassals into wild beasts, and raised Geirrod's good-hearted brother to the throne.

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.

** Another SCA story; A group wanted to hold fight practice with functional replica weaponry. This required a few permits and a change of venue from their regular park. There was one available, but the police warned them that the local motorcycle gang considered it their turf and may not take too kindly to strangers. Seeing no other options, the SCA risked it. Sure enough, the motorcycle club showed up and started hassling the re-creationists. Seems that the battle pikes and other implements that were useful for removing mounted knights from their horses worked just as well for taking riders off their hogs.
