* ''Fanfic/CommonSense'': In Chapter 20, Misty accuses Ash of this when he calls off their rematch, but Ash quickly inverts it, pointing out that she tried to rig the battle to have as many advantages as possible, and is copying the strategy he used to defeat her back at the Gym, even after calling it "cheating" minutes ago. He quickly sums it up with his TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to her:
--> "I accepted your battle so I could finally get some respect, but I don't see that happening, even if I win. You'll just say I 'cheated', or 'got lucky', or 'the sun was in your eyes', or some other excuse. Point is, I don't need to battle you to know that I'm stronger than you. And I'm not going to lose just so you can feel better about yourself when you don't deserve a victory with that kind of attitude. I've put up with it since Viridian City, but this is too much. You're not worth my time."

* In ''VideoGame/WolfensteinIITheNewColossus'', the player can observe a game of chess between genius scientist Set Roth and the mentally-challenged Max Hass. When Max puts Roth into checkmate, the incredulous Roth loses his temper, insults Max’s intelligence, sweeps the pieces off the board and kicks one for good measure as he storms out of the room.

* Invoked in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' by the final boss of the [[OmnicidalManiac No Mercy]] route. [[MediumAwareness This enemy knows you can]] SaveScum, and simply defeating you in battle is therefore not good enough to stop you -- [[SNKBoss they need to make the fight so ridiculously unfair]] that you ''give up on beating the boss'' and stop playing entirely, in a last-ditch effort to [[spoiler:save the entire world.]]

* Seto Kaiba's very first card game match against Yugi in ''[[Anime/YuGiOhFirstAnimeSeries Yu-Gi-Oh!]]'' "Season Zero" has Kaiba on the ropes. Kaiba then plays "Goblin," which apparently forces the match to end with no declared winner. Somehow, [[TurnedUpToEleven the table gets destroyed in the process]]. Yugi (the Pharaoh, actually), doesn't seem bothered by it, as it was his first time playing. It's different in the manga, where Kaiba cheats instead, but his plan failed and he gets punished by Yami Yugi after losing the duel.

** A similar, but much less contentious event, happened to the Patriots in Super Bowl {=XLII=}. After the Giants took the lead with 30 seconds left to go, New England had one chance to go down the field to kick a Field Goal to tie and send the game into overtime, yet were unable to convert a first down. The Giants got a turnover-on-downs with one second on the clock, since the Patriots had used 4th down for one last (unsuccessful) "Hail Mary" attempt. Despite the game being essentially over, NFL rules dictated that a play must be run (in almost all instances, the "Victory Formation" QB kneel is run here). However, Bill Belichick had already left the field by that point, and many Patriots players were already making their way to the locker room. Belichick *did* jog out to congratulate his opponents when the turnover happened, but still technically left the field before the game was over.

* Among the most memorable of Rage Quits ever heard came from the ''WebVideo/GameGrumps'' during a review of ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 Sonic '06]]'', a game that is still regarded as one of the worst of its time. Through out the playthrough, Arin and Jon jokingly mock the game for its complicated story, long load times, strange character design, and many, ''many'' glitches. However, once they encountered one on a lava stage that sent Knuckles twirling skyward and [[RantInducingSlight latched him to the side of a cliff]] (sort of, with Knuckles "climbing" in ''midair''), [[RageBreakingPoint Arin.]] [[HilarityEnsues Just.]] [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Lost it.]]

* Creator/BradJones has one that doubles as a MomentOfAwesome when reviewing "Rock, It's Your Decision" on ''WebVideo/DVDRHell''. Brad is mostly having fun at the movie's expense, he announces that he's ending the review early when the main character makes a deeply homophobic statement, his TheReasonYouSuckSpeech that followed can be summed up with the line "Kid, go fuck yourself". And this is a man who sat through ASerbianFilm despite being horrified by the whole thing. RealLife reason is that Brad's mother is a lesbian, which is why in his eyes, the DesignatedHero had crossed the MoralEventHorizon.

* During the 1976 Soviet Red Army vs. Philadelphia Flyers exhibition UsefulNotes/{{ice hockey}} game, the Soviet Team, who agreed to play by NHL rules, began protesting calls made by the officials. After vocal complaints weren't going anywhere, the Soviet Coach opted to call the entire team back and leave the game. In another ragequit move, the Flyers owner threatened to not pay the Soviets for the game should they leave. Eventually, the Red Army team relented and continued play, eventually losing.
** In fairness, it's universally agreed by experts that the Soviets were indeed getting hosed by the pro-American refs. The only people think otherwise are have been either diehard Flyers fans and/or loonies stuck in the Cold War era.
* A variation occurred during the infamous "Punch-up in Piestany," an international hockey competition. In the final match of the round-robin tournament, Team Canada and Team [=USSR=] got physical and it eventually turned into a massive bench-clearing brawl (literally; players left the bench to throw down). Eventually, after all efforts to restore order failed, the match was called with no winner. Team Canada got PO'd at that point since that meant they were denied a chance at winning the tournament. When no one agreed with them, Team Canada then decided to invoke the trope and refused to stay for the awards presentation. The tournament officials basically went, "Fine. GetOut." And Canada followed Russia on a one-way ticket out of Czechoslovakia.

* In a rather famous incident in the NHL, Patrick Roy - then goaltender of the Montreal Canadiens and noted as one of the greatest goaltenders of all time - was left in net for nine goals against during a game against the Detroit Red Wings on December 2, 1995. This was seen as an extremely controversial move, as star goaltenders are often pulled from games quickly if they are having a bad night. Roy, who had a strained relationship with head coach Mario Tremblay, claimed the move was meant to humiliate him. Furious, he stormed off the ice after finally being pulled and immediately told the Canadiens' president that he had played his last game for the franchise. A few days later, he was traded to the Colorado Avalanche.
