* ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'': Some cartoons directed by Creator/BobClampett, like ''Goofy Groceries'' and ''Wagon Heels'', have a gag where one character roars at another, only for the other to roar back even louder, causing him to shrink down and become a crying baby.
** The gag was also used in the [{WesternAnimation/ThePinkPanther Pink Panther]] short ''It's Pink, But Is It Mink?''

* [[AllThereInTheManual The Encyclopedia]] in the ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors'' games seem to imply that Zhang Liao is capable of this, being so feared due to his {{badass}}ery that even ''crying children'' shut up when they saw him.

It may be that the character is [[TheBigGuy big]], or [[JerkAss mean]], or [[{{Villains}} evil]], or [[TheGrotesque scary-looking]], or simply {{badass}}. It may be any combination of those qualities. It doesn't even have to be a person, although it usually is. It ''cannot'' be a case of a supernatural evil leaking through a failed shield or glamour, though; that's GlamourFailure. This trope isn't limited to dogs, either. The critter that backs down may be any critter, as long as it's established it's a badass in its own right.

* One of the first memorable moments in ''Manga/OnePiece'' is Shanks scaring off a giant eel to cement how much of {{badass}} he is. Later Luffy does it similarly with a bison. Much later, it's revealed what they did was a form of Haki that only a select few are capable of doing.
