* Used in ''OnePiece'' during the Arlong Park arc: Moomoo, the [[{{Kaiju}} Sea Cow]] is summoned to fight the Strawhats, but since he/she was already beaten by Luffy and Sanji earlier, it tries to escape. However, it turns out that It's even more scared of Arlong, as a simple menacing talk from him is enough to push Moomoo to attack the pirates.

* ''Literature/LoneWolf'': It is explained in ''The Magnamund Companion'' that [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Giaks]] are much more afraid of their officers than of the enemy. Which proved a weakness early on, as the Sommlending archers were quick to figure out that if you targeted and killed the Giak commanders, their troops would readily disband in panic. This forced the Darklords to look for stronger, arrow-resistant platoon leaders, which they found in the huge Gourgaz {{lizardfolk}}s.

* JosefStalin is quoted as saying ''"in the Soviet Army it takes more courage to retreat than to advance."'' When one takes account of the fact that the Red Army had units whose sole purpose was to shoot would-be deserters, this is probably not that far from the truth.

* Subverted in "The Black Seal" episode of BlackAdder, the Hawk impugns Edmund's fitness to lead the Six Most Evil Men in England. Edmund tries to dismiss this by telling them how utterly evil his rival is.... and of course it backfires.

* This is the preferred method of defeating enemies of ''Webcomic/OnePunchMan'''s [[WorldsStrongestMan King]]: standing around menacingly while his opponent [[TheDreaded is too scared to fight back]]. [[spoiler:That's because it's the ''only'' thing he can do. He's just an otherwise normal person with a scary face who got his reputation through a series of flukes.]]

* In ''Literature/WorldWarZ'', a Palestinian family decides to accept Israel's offer of sanctuary in the days before the mass zombie outbreaks. The family's teenaged son, full of religious/ethnic fervor and thinking that this was just an Israeli trick of some kind, declares his intention to go join the anti-Israeli militants instead. His father, who at all other times was a patient, quiet, and unassuming man, smacked him upside the head and shouted at him until the son was cowering and sobbing in fear. The son knows why his father did this in retrospect: his father knew it was the only way to get his son to go with them, and the only way to save his life.

** In ''Discworld/TheFifthElephant'', Vimes is sent to {{Uberwald}}, much to his chagrin. When Carrot goes AWOL, Colon takes over and quickly drives the Watch into the ground. When the rest of the Watch goes on strike, it turns out crime rates in the city ''drop'', because while every thief knows that Vimes is out of town, they sure as hell know that his reaction on finding such a mess on returning won't be pretty.
