->One of the other Turks spurred up to him, and tried to catch him with his spear between the shoulders; but my Lord John saw it coming and swerved aside; and as the Saracen passed on, my Lord John gave him a back-handed cut with his sword across the arm, and sent his spear flying.

* In SuikodenV, [[spoiler: Dolph]]'s super move during his duel consists of him Flash-Stepping behind his opponent and stabbing them in a vital spot. However, if Lyon's the one dueling him, and the player pulls off a successful guard, she counters the attack by quickly twisting her blade around and stabbing behind her without even looking. It's a small CMOA for her [[spoiler: especially since Dolph nearly killed her with that same attack earlier in the game.]]

** River Song pulls one off as she destroys an entire room filled with the Silents and as Rory asks what kind of doctor she is, she kills one more Silent as she nonchalantly answers his question. This is possibly one of the most powerful examples of this trope, as due to the nature of the Silence, you forget all about them the moment you take your eyes off them. As such, River pulled an OffhandBackhand on someone she ''[[BeyondTheImpossible could not have even known was there.]]''

to:

** [[Recap/DoctorWho2005CSTheChristmasInvasion "The Christmas Invasion"]]: The Doctor pulls this on the Sycorax leader with a satsuma. Which, to the uninitiated, is a ''small citrus fruit''.
** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E2DayOfTheMoon "Day of the Moon"]]:

Compare FoeTossingCharge, only even more humiliating for the poor sap on the receiving end. Very commonly featured in a work that is RatedMForManly. Users of this move tend to have a BadassBack. There is a certain amount of TruthInTelevision to this: The reverse kick is a fairly viable move. Doesn't mean a flippant BackhandedApology.
