** Ragna the Bloodedge's title comes from the man who previously owned his signature red BadassLongcoat and {{BFS}}, who just went by "Bloodedge". In the distant past, Bloodedge fought the Black Beast in order to distract it long enough for humanity to learn how to use Ars Magus so they could kill it. He managed to last an entire year before the Black Beast finally killed him. [[spoiler:Also, he was a time-travelling Ragna with amnesia]].

* ''Series/StargateSG1'': This is the only way to truly deal with a rogue Ascended being, since the Ascended are EnergyBeings of enormous power. All Ascended are roughly on the same level of power as one another, so they can't actually kill each other, but they can attack and fight each other to the point that their opponent won't be able to do anything else. In two cases across the series, an Ascended enemy is taken care of by another Ascended locking them into an eternal stalemate. [[spoiler:In Season 10, it's demonstrated there is a way to kill Ascended beings, but it's something of an "all or nothing" solution that will kill ''all'' of them without any discrimination, so it's not too useful in dealing with a specific individual. It also relies on technology far beyond the understanding of any non-Ascended being anyway.]]

* A nod to this trope was seen in the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "Last of the Time Lords". After the decisive defeat of TheMaster, the Doctor was not willing to execute the only other member of his species in existence. So he volunteered to live up to this trope, keeping the Master confined in the TARDIS for all eternity or until he reformed. The Master prevented this by committing suicide (or at least refusing to come back from the dead).

** This is the ending of "The Eaters of Light", as Kar and the surviving Roman legionaries charge into the portal to fight off the Eaters for the [[YearInsideHourOutside lifetime of the universe]]. The Doctor nearly did it himself, but had a MoreExpendableThanYou pulled on him.
