* Doctor Octopus does an interesting variation of this line in ''Ride/TheAmazingAdventuresOfSpiderMan'', saying, "With my anti-gravity cannon, even Spider-Man won't be able to stop me!" Electro quickly corrects him, saying, "You mean ''us''." To which Ock replies, "Yes, of course...", giving a brief implication that he's going to betray the other Syndicate members later on.

** On the other hand, [[TheDragon Great Marshall of Hell]] from 'Anime/GreatMazinger'' was more careful about using it. Seemingly he learnt his lesson [[spoiler:since he was a resurrected Dr. Hell.]]

* In ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean: At World's End'': [[TheDragon Mercer]] thinks Cutler Beckett is worrying overmuch about what the pirates are planning, and says, "There's nothing that can stand against the armada, not with the ''Flying Dutchman'' at the lead." Beckett quickly replies: [[GenreSavvy "Nothing we]] ''[[GenreSavvy know]]'' [[GenreSavvy of."]] And Beckett is right, they did not know of [[spoiler:Calypso.]] Nor did they know [[spoiler:that the ''Dutchman'' would be turned against them]].

A form of TemptingFate. Compare EvilGloating, NothingCanSaveUsNow and {{Retirony}}. Also see NearVillainVictory and the DarkestHour, the point at which the villain is most likely to say this.

But we won't let that happen, will we Smithers?!" It doesn't: even after Homer wrecks the casino, Burns returns to the power plant because he misses it.
** Parodied with reference to ''Film/{{Westworld}}'' and ''Film/JurassicPark'' when the family are flown out to the [[TheItchyAndScratchyShow Itchy And Scratchy]] Land theme park:
--> '''Pilot:''' Welcome to Itchy And Scratchy Land, the advanced amusement park where nothing can possibligh go wrong. Possi''bly'' go wrong. That's the first thing that's ever gone wrong.
** Played straight in the "Mr. Plow" episode. At the end, Barney and Homer agree to work together, stating [[TemptingFate "When two best friends work together not even God himself can stop them!"]] This, of course, pisses off God, who causes a heat wave and melts all the snow. This leads to both their plows to be repossessed.

** In ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'' after Tartarus had brought him the Index, the Prophet of Truth proclaimed nothing, not even the Flood can stop them. Appropriately, A Spartan-II materialized right in front of him and the Arbiter starts wrecking things close by. And for extra goodness, both appearances are orchestrated by the Flood.
