-->'''Petersen:''' You want me to hold your hand, Fusco? Oh, I forgot, we broke your fingers.\\

* ''Franchise/LupinIII'' can only be handcuffed if he lets you handcuff him. During a LupinIIIRedJacket episode, Fujiko uses this trait to convince Zenigata Lupin is possessed: there's blood on the cuffs, which means he had to fight his way out of them... something the normal Lupin wouldn't have to do.
* ''{{Trigun}}'': Vash the Stampede once slid out of ropes to protect a young woman from bandits. Said bandits caught him before he could get back into them... the second time.

* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect3: Citadel'', after the final mission, [[spoiler: Maya Brooks]] is captured by Shepard's squad and cuffed with some kind of HardLight omni-cuffs, which she proceeds to try to hack before she's even left the room. She's perfectly capable of working the cuffs off in less than a minute. She's less capable of dodging gunfire from ten feet away.

* BugsBunny in ''Film/SpaceJam''. When the aliens have him imprisoned, and are "gloating" to the highly amused toons, Bugs is quietly rolling his eyes and slipping out of the somewhat impressive amount of rope he's bound with. And the cuffs for his ears.
