* In the ''VideoGame/StreetsOfRage'' series, pressing B and C together makes the player character attack an enemy being them. Axel does an actual backhand, Blaze does a reverse leg sweep and Max does a mule kick, to name a few examples.

* Subverted in a somewhat early storyline in ''Webcomic/{{Fans}}'': Shanna Cochran is the Mundane being slowly drawn into a world where truly strange things happen and she is less prepared than her somewhat GenreSavvy friends, so at one point when she is about to be attacked by government agents, she attempts an OffhandBackhand, not considering that the agent is bigger, stronger, and more skilled than she is. He proceeds to catch her arm and, with the help of his partner, actually lift and carry her bodily away- while she is still in the OffhandBackhand pose.

* In ''TheMovies'', one of the scenes allows a character to do this, in {{defi|edTrope}}ance of the scene's standard "bad guy sneaks up and chokes the character to death."

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Webcomic/BoyfriendOfTheDead'' Alex is shocked that a zombie communicated with her and didn't attack. Not so shocked she won't use a golf club to decapitate a zombie coming up behind her. Left-handed. Without looking or so much as changing her expression.

* In ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'', {{Tsundere}} Helga likes to monologue about her unrequited love for Arnold when she thinks nobody can hear. However, background character Brainy is always hovering over her shoulder, breathing heavily... and is [[OffhandBackhand Offhand Backhanded]] for his trouble.

The one time she ''didn't'' do it, he punches ''himself''.

* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', after the final battle with [[spoiler:Kai Leng]], a Renegade interrupt allows you to do this, [[spoiler:breaking his sword as he sneaks up on you to shank you from behind, just before using your omniblade to end him once and for all]]. Given the crap that [[spoiler:Kai Leng]] has pulled on you all game, this is a [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome very]] [[KickTheSonOfABitch satisfying]] way to take him down.

** A classic badass example is when Wes is interrogating a demon in a bar. The demon starts getting cocky when he sees another demon sneaking up on Wesley... until Wes reaches behind with a shotgun and blows his face off. Which ''should'' grow back on that species.
