Naturally the opposite to TalkingIsAFreeAction; many shows where the characters [[CallingYourAttacks call their attacks]] have at least one instance where this trope [[AcceptableBreaksFromReality overrides the normal approach]]. Great way to deliver a ShutUpHannibal. OffhandBackhand is a variant of this for extra cool points. Note that this ''can'' be used in an unsympathetic light, usually by a stupid and uninformed person (like, say, a KnightTemplar or TheFundamentalist) who has been backed into an ideological corner by someone who challenged their idiotic, benighted ramblings and defeated all of their counterarguments; if they really don't want to accept that they have nothing left to stand on, expect the stupid-and-angry character to punch them square in the face, often along with a terse "no one cares".

* In ''Webcomic/OnePunchMan'', Saitama does ''not'' give a crap about anyone's backstory or motivations. If anyone tries to give him a MotiveRant or similar speech, he'll either get bored and walk away, or [[OneHitKill punch them]].

* This is very common in and out of matches, either to catch a showboating opponent off guard or to [[ShutUpHannibal end a Heel's promo]]. For bonus points, this is often done with a FinishingMove. ShawnMichaels tends to shut people up with his Sweet Chin Music.

* Attempted in ''SailorNothing''. The villain in question [[SubvertedTrope simply snuffs out the attack with a gesture before it's invoked]] and bemusedly asks the heroes to be a little more civil since he hasn't even ''begun'' with his EvilGloating yet. [[spoiler:As it turns out, the villain ''needs'' said gloating in order to intentionally fire up the heroes enough [[DeathSeeker so they would be able to defeat him]].]]

* In ''ComicBook/{{Thor2014}}'', Thor is approached by the new Loki from ''ComicBook/LokiAgentOfAsgard'', who says that he wants to try to change the story of perpetual rivalry between those who bear their names.
