*** Earth Dragon-Blooded also have a variant. "My smaller essence pool and relative squishiness is irrelevant when I'm able to shred even your best essence efficiency tactics to nothing and then force the issue by pestering you with small but persistent attacks that you nonetheless can't afford to take without burning essence at a horrendously unsustainable rate." More terrifying pre-errata, as the former component didn't have a keyword immunity that could prevent it, and the latter component was (and still is) typically the most convoluted immunity to acquire. The fact that they're generally the sturdiest of the Dragon-Blooded helps with this tactic as well.

** Fire Dragon-Blooded in the same edition also share this trait, and it's something that trips up a surprising number of players used to fighting other Celestial-tier Exalts. "Sure, my defenses might not be great, and my essence pool is smaller than yours, but if you mess up your timing ''once'', I will ''slaughter you''." The biggest timing mistake that can be made against them? Infinite Ability Mastery, which is ''standard operating procedure'' for most high-end Solar combatants.

* The 2016 U.S. presidential election was all about this. The main candidates, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, were two of the most unpopular nominees in recent American history so the campaign turned into a battle of who was the ''least'' disliked. Both sides threw some of the dirtiest mudslinging in years in hopes of driving up the public's hatred and charts of popularity during the final months show both sides got in some pretty good hits. The strategy actually worked for both sides with Clinton taking the popular vote, but Trump winning via the electoral college in states where Clinton was disliked.

* Happens to Cody Jones in ''[[TMNT2003 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles]]'' (2003) when he is taking on Darius Dun. Turtle-X, Cody's {{mini mecha}}, is taking a beating from Darius' combat armor. However, this is only a feint; after Dun's armor runs out of power, Cody gleefully mentions that his uncle is now defenseless, while Turtle-X still has plenty of offensive juice left.
