* ''[[VideoGame/NintendoWars Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising]] has this as a valid tactic for completing the normal campaign version of '''Two-Week Test.''' You simply do nothing except end your turn. Doing this showcases the AI's ability to screw itself over, but your rank will suck. The Hard Campaign averts this by giving you pre-deployed units.

* In ''Witches Brew'', the fifth book in the ''Literature/MagicKingdomOfLandover'' series, one of the champions sent by Lord Rydall, the fake BigBad of the book, is a knight resembling the Paladin, the champion of Landover and King Ben Holiday's personal protector. (And his other persona -- it's complicated.) The Paladin fights the knight but finds his opponent can perfectly match him blow for blow. The knight is only defeated when the Paladin sheathes his weapon and disappears, causing his doppelganger to do the same.

* According to legend, the Chinese philosopher UsefulNotes/LaoTzu was never one to fight or argue, so when the border guard Yinxi demanded he record his wisdom for the good of the country before he would be permitted to pass, he simply said, "Eh, okay". He wrote for a month straight, eventually turning out the first draft of his masterpiece, the ''Literature/TaoTeChing''. (Or so the story goes.)

* A lot of martial arts that are applicable towards self defense seem to recommend the ScrewThisImOuttaHere school of self-defense: when confronted by (for instance) a mugger, you turn the hell around and run your ass off. The "martial" part of the martial arts regimen only comes into play when cowardice doesn't cut it.

Compare PuzzleBoss (where you're not necessarily fighting the ''boss'', but still need to take action to defeat it, perhaps indirectly), UnexpectedlyRealisticGameplay, and WhyIsntItAttacking. Contrast ViolenceIsTheOnlyOption. See also FailureGambit, where this path is the only way to prevent the gambit's success.
