* A villainous example from ''Manga/SaintSeiya'': after being overwhelmed by Hyoga's Aurora Thunder Attack, Black Swan, knowing that [[ItOnlyWorksOnce Athena's Saints can easily defeat a move they've already seen]], burns his Cosmo to teleport his master Ikki a memory of the attack (contained in the swan emblem of his helmet that he ripped off in the anime, or [[EyeScream his own eye]] that [[RatedMForManly he ripped off himself just for this purpose]]), also blowing himself up to mask his move with an attempt to take out Hyoga.
