* Ex-Apollo Astronaut Buzz Aldrin was once harangued by conspiracy theorist [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bart_Sibrel Bart Sibrel]] 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. [[spoiler: After all, Sibrel said things to Aldrin's face such as "how do you expect to get to heaven" and "you are a coward, a liar and a thei-", the last one is a downplayed version of {{Killed Mid Sentence}} because that's when [[BerserkButton a line was crossed]] and Aldrin punched Sibrel in the face]].

** In the WhamEpisode, the [[spoiler:new]] villains have the appalling tactlessness to attack [=GaoGaiGar=] in the middle of [[CallingYourAttacks calling its defence]], underlining the seriousness of the situation. [[spoiler:'''PROTECT SHA--'''*zap* AUUUGH!]]
** This scene played out again in the final episode of ''[=GaoGaiGar=] FINAL'', during the battle between Gai and Palparepa. BigBad picks himself up, pulls his face back together, and '''''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PWTnKZ9U5Og WHAM!!]]'''''

* Creator/JeremyClarkson, presenter of ''Series/TopGear'', was accused of adultery on the front page of a tabloid newspaper. Discovering the editor of the [[BritishNewspapers Daily Mirror]] - one [[CountryMatters Piers Morgan]] - sitting in an upmarket restaurant with ''his'' extra-marital affair, Clarkson addressed the double standard involved here by punching Morgan across the diner. Whilst public opinion in this case was supportive of Clarkson, on the grounds the man he had chinned was Piers Morgan, a later punch by Clarkson had far less of a happy result. [[note]]Getting him sacked by the Creator/{{BBC}}[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

** There's a particularly notable instance of this in VideoGame/BatmanArkhamOrigins:[[spoiler: During the [[OneHitPointWonder "battle"]] against the Electrocutioner, he taunts you and mocks you relentlessly...until you punch his lights out. Whether you do this during an ellipsis or as he speaks is up to you, though.]]

* ([[PunchClockVillain Punch clock]]) villainous example in ''Literature/TheGrapesOfWrath'': [[spoiler:[[BadassPreacher Jim Casy]] attempts to give a strikebreaker a LastSecondChance and promptly gets his skull smashed.]] Sucks for [[spoiler:Casy]], but hey, it does fit the religious metaphor!

** The best example is during the mission to find Thane, where you come across a particularly uncooperative mercenary. The Renegade interrupt has you [[BadAss shove him out the window that he's in front of.]] [[DestinationDefenestration In a skyscraper.]]

* In a rare example when the protagonists are the victims of this, on Series/{{Leverage}} this happens to resident BadAss Eliot when he meets [[WakeUpCallBoss Quinn]] and his usual [[HeyYouHaymaker tap on the shoulder]] tactic is greeted with this.
