* In the ''Humanity, Fuck Yeah'' short story ''The Passenger'' a species of pirates have a code that they always allow for CombatByChampion to determine whether they leave empty-handed or sell their victims into slavery. Using a device that emits an alarm if someone lies, the leader of the pirates boasts of being from a "Class 7 Rough World" and training in 1.4 times galactic standard gravity to toughen himself up. The opposing champion is an ordinary human from Earth: a "Class 12 Death World" with gravity 1.6 times galactic standard. After hearing that, the pirates all leave without uttering a word.

Their leader, Chu, shows up and [[PapaWolf promptly kills them for their cowardice.]]

* In the ''Literature/{{Franklin}}'' stage show ''Franklin's Class Trip'', Franklin has this reaction when he and his class visit the science museum and are greeted in song by their "highly respected and professional" but nevertheless somewhat eccentric guideperson, Miss Carbunkel. He's already scared because of an incorrect belief that they're going to see a real live dinosaur there and Miss Carbunkel's oddness doesn't do anything to help. He tries to rope Snail into his plan to leave as well, but Snail is actually the voice of reason who puts the kibosh on the plan, noting that the bus back doesn't come until well after lunchtime and they need to just have courage and "do this."

[[{{Mooks}} Henchman Bob]] is beginning to have second thoughts about his career with the EvilOverlord. Maybe he's dissatisfied with the lack of advancement opportunities, what with the BigBad's tendency to [[BadBoss kill subordinates for no reason]], [[YouHaveFailedMe "motivational" reasons]], or [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness personal utilitaristic reasons]]. Maybe he's smart enough to realize that [[StormingTheCastle the next visit from the good guys]] won't end well for Team Evil. Or maybe Bob's just sick and tired of [[KickTheDog kicking puppies]] for a living.

Inverse of AttackAttackAttack, but the former followed by this trope can result in AttackAttackRetreatRetreat. Contrast with VillainExitStageLeft, which is when the BigBad or other high-profile villain pulls this stunt, rather than a simple insignificant Mook or cowardly sidekick. Compare and contrast TacticalWithdrawal for more organized, strategic decisions, and RunOrDie for when ''everyone'' agrees that running away screaming is the appropriate response. Contrast ResignationsNotAccepted where one tries to flee, but can't.
