** ''Literature/GuardsGuards'' has Lady Sybil Ramkin stare down the giant dragon just like she usually does with her smaller and mostly harmless swamp dragons. Unfortunately, she then also searches her pockets for a cookie - and in doing so looks down and loses the eye contact...

** Vegeta gets his own moment of glory against Kid Buu. Even after getting pounded into the ground not once, not twice, but three times. Buu thinks he's won, when Vegeta stands up, covered in blood, slowly walks toward him, and starts making a speech about how he can't be defeated by such measly attacks.
-->'''Vegeta''': "What are you gawking at? What did you think, huh? That I was gonna roll over and die from an attack like that? You're nothing. Just a trickster. I am a warrior... the Saiyan Prince... VEGETA!!!"

Buu is frozen with a look of utter shock on his face, and then he takes a step back in fear. When you scare the fight out of Majin Buu, you know you're Badass.

** Arya Stark does this to Tywin Lannister. Tywin's death glares are known to leave even hardened warriors quaking in their boots, and Arya -- a little girl -- stares him down.

** Arya Stark does this to Tywin Lannister. Tywin's death glares are known to leave even hardened warriors quaking in their boots, and Arya -- a little girl -- stares him down. It seems to be becoming a recurring theme for her to lock eyes with the most dangerous characters in the land without backing down. She later does it to Melisandre (who is actually disturbed by what she sees in Arya's eyes) and the Hound. Though averted with the Mountain; as mentioned above, the one person who tries this trope gets tortured to death in front of her.

* ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': Immediately after Xavier accomplishes a DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu by modifying the final sentence of Apocalypse's [[spoiler:planet-wide]] NewEraSpeech, Charles brazenly glares at his captor, unflinching and undaunted by any punishment that may befall him. It proves that Professor X will oppose Apocalypse with every fiber of his being, [[DefiantToTheEnd no matter how futile it is]].

** Before that,''Caliban'', of all people, not only doesn't flinch from Apocalypse when he arrives demanding his assistance locating other mutants, but [[DeadpanSnarker mouths off to him]] and ''pulls a gun on him''.

* In ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys3'', this is one of the things you can use against [[BigBad Springtrap]]. He won't move when you're looking directly at him, so when he's behind your window or at your door, as long as you don't move the view away or pull up the cameras or maintenance panel, you can stare him down until [[InstantWinCondition 6 AM]]. Of course, if you don't pull up the maintenance panel you can't reboot the ventilation, and if you don't reboot the ventilation you'll start blacking out and allow him the chance to attack, but it can still provide a few lifesaving seconds of delay.
