* From ''WesternAnimation/{{Duckman}}'', Cornfed pulls this one in "A Civil War" after he's cornered by the mastermind in the episode's insurance-fraud plot. It doubles as a BrickJoke since earlier in the episode, he displayed enough skill with origami to turn a matchbook into a miniature medieval castle: this time he turned it [[{{Badass}} into a pair of nun-chucks]].

* Averted in a Ukrainian short story about a [[{{Cossacks}} cossack]] being tried by the Poles. As he is facing the gallows, the judge offers him a last request. However, instead of a smoke, the man asks that he be allowed to dance a hopak (cossack dance). Everybody is confused and begs him to opt for a smoke instead. Turns out, it's a trick. As he is finishing his dance with a big jump, the boards that have been cut the night before give way, and he falls into a freshly-dug tunnel, his escape having been planned by the fellow cossacks.

* In ''Film/DoubleIndemnity'' Walter Neff, after revealing all his crimes to his mentor Keys, pathetically tries 'making a run for the border' with a moral gunshot would he acquired earlier in the film. When he collapses in the hallway he fumbles around trying to find a match for a cigarette (as Keys himself had done for most of the film) and in a role-reversal it is now Keys who stoically produces and lights the match for him.
