* Zigzagged in ''Fanfic/UltimateVideoRumble 3'': After Lion Rafale downs the Executioner, the ever-GenreSavvy (and snarky) Yoshimitsu idly comments, "Well, he looks dead. I can't think of a better time to turn my back and put my guard down." Lion takes the hint and [[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown boots Ex in the head a few more times.]] Which ''still'' isn't enough, as the Executioner rises as they start to leave.

* In ''[[ComicBook/GrimmFairyTales Return to Wonderland]]'', TheMadHatter tries to rape Calie Liddell, but she smashes a vase against his head. She says [[AvertedTrope she will not repeat the mistakes]] [[GenreSavvy girls usually make in horror films]], so she breaks off a table leg and [[KickThemWhileTheyreDown beats the shit out of him.]]

* Defied in ''Film/{{Zombieland}}'', where the GenreSavvy Columbus makes a rule about "Double Tapping", IE shooting the zombies more than once and making sure they're dead.

* Averted many times in ''Franchise/EvilDead''. It's played straight however, in [[Film/TheEvilDead the first movie]] when Ash stabs his [[DemonicPossession possessed girlfriend]] and can't bring himself to dismember the corpse, causing her to attack him when he tries burying her. When she [[Film/EvilDead2 comes back]] after he beheaded her with a spade, he retaliates with a [[ChainsawGood chainsaw]]. Ash made a point of teaching everyone the lesson in time for ''Film/ArmyOfDarkness'':

* Spriggans in the ''Bloodmoon'' expansion to ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' will come back to life not once, but ''twice'' if killed (put another way, you have to [[RuleOfThree kill them three times]] before they stay dead). [[FridgeLogic Even if you use Soul Trap and capture their souls.]] This is changed in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', where they instead [[BearsAreBadNews summon bears]].

This is would be changed in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', for all future games, where they instead [[BearsAreBadNews summon bears]].have a powerful HealingFactor which kicks in when they get critically low on health. (Which really emulates the same basic effect of them going from nearly dead to fully threatening once again.)

* Mentioned in ''Film/TheQuickAndTheDead''. Up until that point Russell Crowe's character has been able to win all his quick draw matchs with only one bullet (he's a priest and refuses to kill them) until his next match makes a BadassBoast about one bullet wouldn't put him down; he's right it takes two.

Contrast KickThemWhileTheyAreDown, NoHoldsBarredBeatdown and ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill, where the attacker doesn't let up, and the DoubleTap, where someone shoots an apparently dead enemy again just to make sure.

* In VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum and its sequel Arkham City, you have to use a special takedown move to make sure a mook does not get back up (and most of the time, they will).
