* The ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'' TCG had a card called [[http://www.sarna.net/wiki/Taking_the_Hit_%28CCG_-_CommandersEdition%29 Taking The Hit]] that redirects all damage from one target to another. Its card art shows a tiny 30-ton ''Spider'' taking several shot for an 85-ton ''Gunslinger.'' The ''Gunslinger'' is better equipped to take damage than the ''Spider'', possessing something around five times the armor of the lighter 'Mech. The card text even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] the lack of sense in the move.
