* ''VideoGame/WorldOfFinalFantasy'' has a moment at the start of the Eclipsed Region where the Cactuar Conductor gives phasmophobic Reynn a JumpScare. After Reynn fails several times in succession to punch the conductor out for it, Lann tries to calm her down and gets troped for his trouble.
-->'''Reynn:''' I've still got it!
-->'''Lann:''' Well, you don't have to give it to ''me!''

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'':
** Part of Spike's EstablishingCharacterMoment. Step one: swagger into the current villain's lair and make fun of a mook's overly dramatic speech. Step two: reminiscence about ContemplatingYourHands at Woodstock, then knock out the mook without even looking at him. Step three: stop to fawn over [[IllGirl Ill Vampire Girlfriend]].
** There was a variation in which Wesley (before he TookALevelInBadass) fenced with Giles and kept ineffectually lunging at him while Giles faced the other way and read a newspaper with his other hand the whole time.
** Not that Giles isn't on the receiving end; in "Reptile Boy" he's getting on at Buffy for not taking her training seriously. "Are you gonna be prepared if a demon springs up behind you and does ''this?''" Giles then does a karate chop at the back of Buffy's neck; she puts him in an armlock without even bothering to turn round. In fact Buffy does this trope as a RunningGag from the first time we see her stake a vampire; justified due to her supernaturally-enhanced reaction time and awareness.

** A variation in the season 4 premiere with a [[TookALevelInBadass considerably more badass Wesley]] on the other side of it. Justine picks up a wrench... "I'll take away your bucket". Justine puts down the wrench. That one ''could'' be explained as Wesley seeing her reflection in the glass (he was steering a boat at the time).

* 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 ''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.
