*** ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheTempleOfDoom'' has a ShoutOut to this scene in which Indy is confronted by ''two'' swordsmen. He reaches for his gun...only to find an empty holster, as he'd forgotten that his pistol was confiscated earlier in the movie.

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' kindly reminds you not to bring an army (or three) to a dragon-fight. Or, build the continent's most impressive, land-assault-proof castle and hole up in it when facing flame-throwing, aerial attacks. Conversely, it's recommended that you don't bring a dragon to the environmental dream of guerilla warriors everywhere consisting of expansive deserts and mountains. Also, don't expect a normal fight when facing armies of the self-recruiting undead. You are also further advised to keep General Winter in mind when holding a war in The North, as forgetting to pack decent cloaks, coats, snowshoes and/or a trusty mule-train able to use and/or carry them all, rather than warhorses which can't, is somewhat embarrassing. That is all.

That is all. Also, "don't bring a combustible navy to a wildfire fight". These are just some of the big ones: many a handy tip for smaller encounters can also be found. Like "don't wear heavy armour in your enemy's running fight", "don't bring weapons-bling you don't know how to use against a professional killer and their practiced longsword/greatsword", "don't start a BattleOfWits when you're not one youself" and other such gems.
