* ''BushidoBlade'' begins almost every fight with your opponent talking for a short bit before the fight starts proper. It's entirely possible to cut them down before they finish, however this is considered a dishonorable act and will disqualify you from achieving the best possible ending if you ever do it.

* In ''CrisisCore: VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', most attacks and spells have a starting time. Against smaller foes, it's possible to interrupt this, but beware that they don't do it '''to you, Zack!'''

* Done quite a few times in ''Manga/OnePiece'' most notably in the "Arlong Arc"'. After forcing Fishman Karate expert Kuroobi to the surface, Sanji angrily declares that he will beat the living daylights out of him. Kuroobi laughs the remark off and begins to list why he is a superior fighter but is immediately kicked in the neck by Sanji. [[HumiliationConga And then pummeled everywhere else. And then kicked "through" a building.]]

* This once happened [[BloodOnTheDebateFloor on the floor of the]] [[UsefulNotes/TheEuropeanUnion European Parliament]]. During a visit by [[UsefulNotes/ThePope Pope John Paul II]] to the EP, [[UsefulNotes/NorthernIreland Northern Irish]] [[UsefulNotes/TheTroubles ultra-Loyalist]] MEP and hard-right Presbyterian minister Rev. Ian Paisley started angrily denouncing him as TheAntichrist. Conservative German MEP Otto von Habsburg, as a very devout Catholic (his father was [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_I_of_Austria the literally saintly last Emperor of Austria Hungary]] and his ancestors were the [[HolyRomanEmpire Holy Roman Emperors]], for heaven's sake!) took exception. With his fist.

* Ex-Apollo Astronaut Buzz Aldrin was once harangued by a conspiracy theorist who vehemently argued that the moon landing was a hoax, in front of his stepdaughter. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wptn5RE2I-k His response was to interrupt the conspiracy theorist with a punch to the face.]] A judge let Aldrin off, ruling that the conspiracy theorist was practically assaulting Aldrin, and Aldrin had every right to make him Talk to the Fist.
