** Zigzagged in "Hyde and Go Tweet" where Sylvester is fleeing from a monsterous Tweety, who drank Dr. Jekyll's formula. Sylvester runs to an edge of a building and threatens, "I'll jump!" but then realizes, "Like I have a choice?" and does so. (Fortunately for Sylvester, the whole episode is a DreamSequence.)

* The opening scene of ''Murder at 1600'' features the protagonist (a D.C. homicide cop) trying to talk down a cracked government bureaucrat who is holding a gun to his own head in the middle of a busy street. Why is a homicide detective filling in for a hostage negotiator? Don't ask so many questions.

* In 1994, OJ Simpson famously led Los Angeles police in a low-speed chase while fleeing arrest for the murders of Nicole Brown-Simpson and Ron Goldman in a white Bronco driven by his friend, Al Cowlings. Allegedly, Simpson was in the backseat of the Bronco holding a gun to his own head, and had threatened to kill himself if the police got too close. The chase eventually ended at Simpson's house, where he finally surrendered to police.

* ''Film/BlazingSaddles''. See the above picture. "Hold it! The next man makes a move, the nigger gets it!" What makes this especially funny and awesome is that when Bart takes himself hostage, the townspeople were about to ''lynch'' him. Moments later, they are suddenly saying things like "Won't someone help that poor man?".

** In the Forest of Death, a variation is used; Ino possesses the body of Kin, one of the Sound Genin, and threatens to commit suicide unless Dosu and Zaku stand down. However, the two know that any damage done to a victim of possession by that technique also hurts the possessor, and not only see through the bluff but attack Kin to injure Ino.

Not to mention that the Sound Genin don't like each other and thus don't actually care if Kin dies, so long as they complete their mission.

* In the ''Series/{{Supergirl 2015}}'' episode "Mr. and Mrs. Mxyzptlk", Mxyzptlk tries to force Supergirl to marry him. To stop him, she sets the Fortress of Solitude to self-destruct, pointing out it would be enough to kill her. Since he's not allowed to use his powers to stop someone from killing themselves, he panics and begs her to shut it off. She gives him the deactivation code and he enters it. Since it was in Kryptonian script, he found out too late that it was "KLTPZYXM", his name backwards, banishing him back to the Fifth Dimension.
