* ''Series/PersonOfInterest''. In "Pretenders", this week's Number is a mild-mannered office worker pretending to be a HardboiledDetective. When he encounters 'Detective Riley' aka genuine BadAss John Reese, the latter dodges his wild haymaker with a grin on his face, then knocks out the HeroicWannabe with one punch.

* ''Film/TheMatrix'': After unlocking his potential as The One, Neo could dodge (or parry) any single attack even by an Agent this way (type 1 or 3), although then they start throwing more and tougher opponents at him so that he has to start paying attention again. A good example of when he actually does it is when the three new agents attack him in ''Reloaded'' and the first one aims a kick at his head. He nonchalantly dodges the first kick easily, as well as its follow-up (which he blocks one-handed, the other hand behind his back in disdain). He only notices the agents have been upgraded when he realizes he has to actually use both hands to parry.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', the FinalBoss of a Genocide playthrough does this with every one of your attacks, quipping, "What? You think I'm just gonna stand there and take it?" Up until that point no other enemy had even ''tried'' to dodge, so it's a bit of a shock the first time.

* Neopolitan from ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' fights like this against Yang, effortlessly dancing around Yang's increasingly clumsy and desperate punches with a smug smirk on her face. Yang is left so frustrated and tired by the end that Neo can easily take her out with a OneHitKO.

* ''Film/CrouchingTigerHiddenDragon'': Li Mu Bai is fond of this when "training" Jen, even spouting homilies as he does.

* It's common to all iterations of the family: Dante in ''VideoGame/DmCDevilMayCry'' often gets large chunks of the scenery thrown at his head, and moves ''just'' enough that they miss.

* A very silly bit of a cutscene near the beginning of ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'' shows Matriarch Benezia leaning slightly to one side with a bored look on her face as Saren throws his infamous furniture-flinging tantrum.
