* During a period of being DangerouslyGenreSavvy, Wrestling/SamoaJoe would just move out of the way when he saw his opponents going up to the top rope for high-risk moves. Not much you can do about it when your opponent is all the way across the ring.

Added DiffLines:

* A recent advertisement by British phone and internet provider BT features Creator/RyanReynolds demonstrating the range of a BT router's wifi by holding on to a helicopter's skids as it flies up while holding a tablet. As soon as the helicopter takes off, Reynolds begins screaming in terror and begging the pilot to land, who just obliviously asks him if he has wifi.

Added DiffLines:

* At one point during the Authority angle, [[Wrestling/TheBigShow Big Show]] gets fired by Triple H and Stephanie McMahon for not playing ball. He ends up suing them for unfair dismissal, and Trips and Steph are forced by the board of directors to bring him back in order to prevent a lawsuit.
* On one occasion, Stephanie was arrested for battery after physically assaulting Brie Bella, who had quit in protest and was attending as a member of the audience.

** After multiple attorneys and prosecutors are caught [[AmoralAttorney presenting forged evidence]], and at least a few are convicted of murder (with [[VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney one of them]] requiring a complete overhaul of the entire legal system just to convict him), the public has understandably lost faith in the justice system by ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies''. The loss of faith causes more defence attorneys and prosecutor's to use corrupt means to win cases heralding "The Dark Age of the Law". Even revealing the truth behind the two main incidents that caused this does not fix things immediately; someone still needs to pick up the pieces.

* The song "Scalp" by Atmosphere features the narrator describing his night. He goes to the bar and meets his friend Sonny, who offers to pay him for retrieving a package from a tattoo parlor. One expects the protagonist to follow through with his task, possibly finding something surprising in the package along the way, but instead he is killed in a car crash immediately after leaving the bar. Which is what happens when you drink $50 worth of alcohol and then drive at night.

* Music/{{Skrillex}}'s ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJVmu6yttiw Bangarang]]'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJVmu6yttiw music video]] ([[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xowdrn_skrillex-bangarang-official-music-video_music Alternate link for German users, since Youtube blocks these video in Germany >:(]]) features three cunning little boys robbing an ice-cream truck of its stock, complete with fat, cartoonish ice-cream man. The plan goes wrong and they end up seriously injuring the guy to escape. (He was going to use a stick to beat one, but there was no way they could see that.) When they grow up and become professional thieves, the one who accidentally cut off the ice-cream man's hand gives some of his loot to the guy by way of compensation.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OpReQprVjag A depressing NSPCC ad]] had a man [[AmusingInjuries beating a cartoon kid]] for a while before throwing the kid down the stairs as we pan to see a real unconscious kid on the floor and the caption "Real children don't bounce back".
* A Dr. Pepper TV ad had two guys moving a pinball machine down the stairs. A snapping noise is heard, and one of the guys is shown in pain. A doctor with a can of Dr. Pepper comes near the guy, complete with a Dubstep song. The guy seems happy until he resumes being hurt and is then shown about to let go of the machine, which would make the machine crash into the wall.

* A British NHS advert that ran in the late 00s featured a crowd of people watching in awe as a Batman-esque superhero scaled a building scaffold dramatically and acrobatically to retrieve a lost balloon. When the hero reached the top, he slipped off of the pole on which is was precariously balanced and fell the entire height of the building. The audience is then treated to an unpleasant shot of the actually ordinary man, twitching blankly on the concrete floor as the narrator speaks the words "Too much alcohol makes you feel invincible when you're most vulnerable". It was an effective advert.

* Actually, pro wrestling programs tend to subvert this trope, with UnderdogsAlwaysWin a favorite storyline for babyfaces. Jobbers do lose all the time, and underdog heels usually, but of course those occurrences are ''supposed'' to happen.



* Any time a member of the audience jumps the barricade and tries to enter the ring, unless it is a plant in the audience that was scripted to do so, they will be apprehended by security and blacklisted from attending future events.

* Any time a member of the audience jumps the barricade and tries to enter the ring, unless it is a plant in the audience that was scripted to do so, they will be apprehended by security and blacklisted from attending future events. Not to mention, they might get a firsthand lesson as to why attacking someone who looks like a bodybuilder, that knows how to throw their weight around (literally), and is now really pissed off at you, is a very stupid idea.


Added DiffLines:

* When Wrestling/CMPunk went of on his infamous "Pipe Bomb" WorkedShoot, his microphone was cut off after he started mocking the entire company on camera. It was announced immediately after that he had been suspended indefinitely, which is what would happen if any other professional athlete did something so brazen.
* During a period of being DangerouslyGenreSavvy, Wrestling/SamoaJoe would just move out of the way when he saw his opponents going up to the top rope for high-risk moves. Not much you can do about it when your opponent is all the way across the ring.
