* In ''Discworld/MenAtArms'', Carrot had a truly epic example when he successfully shamed two armies of trolls and dwarves. They were ready to rip each other apart until he came and basically told them that their dear old mothers would not be proud.

* Near the beginning of ''TheMalloreon'', the sequel-series to Creator/DavidEddings' ''Literature/TheBelgariad'', Belgarion pulls this, mostly to demonstrate how much he's grown up since the previous series. He stops a civil war in Mimbre by basically riding out between the two armies, unhorsing everyone who gets in his way, and then calling down a cataclysmic thunderstorm between them, while suggesting that anyone who wants to start fighting, can start by fighting HIM. Considering how eager [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Mimbrates]] are to go to war, nothing less would have done the trick, probably.

* Played with in "The Dance of the Hours", one of Giovannino Gaureschi's ''[[Literature/DonCamillo Don Camillo]] stories. Things between FriendlyEnemies Don Camillo and Peppone escalated quickly and both grabbed a bench to clobber the other with; one of Peppone's men, Smilzo, is the only one who keeps his head and tries in vain to stop Peppone until he's right between the two benches. The fight is broken up by something entirely unrelated, and Smilzo is left standing alone in the middle of the square. Then, since nobody's watching, he goes to [[INeedAFreakingDrink get himself a Coca-Cola]].

* One of the stories about [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/CrazyAwesome/RealLife Emperor Norton]] is the time when a crazed mob made its way to the Chinese ghetto. Norton took a knee between the angry mob, and the Chinese gathered to defend their home, and started reciting the Lord's Prayer. The rioters dispersed in shame.

* From ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemFates Fire Emblem 14]]'': In the diverging path chapter of Fates Corrin plays this role, unsuccessfully, between Xander and Ryoma. Subverted when Corrin chooses a particular side in Birthright and Conquest, and confirmed in Revelation by continuing throughout the game to stand, metaphorically and physically, between Hoshido and Nohr.
