** Pulled off much earlier by Goku when he first faces off with the Ginyu Force: Recoome is doing his "You have no chance" song and dance number, and just before he can finish and attack, Goku one-shots him with an elbow to the gut. He tells him, "I saw an opening that seemed to scream out, 'attack!'. So... I did."

Compare KilledMidSentence, the much more extreme version[[note]]well, most of the time, anyway[[/note]]. Sister trope of VerbThis. Not to be confused with TalkToTheHand.

* ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' has Loki furiously telling the Hulk, who's been tearing through his army, that he is a god and he will not be threatened by a green simpleton like him. [[spoiler:The Hulk responds by grabbing him and [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown slamming him around the room, leaving him bloodied, beaten, and making a hilariously pathetic squeaky noise.]]]]
-->"Puny god...!"

* The [[{{Exalted}} Infernal Exalted]] have an ability that allows them to regain Willpower when they do this. (In a slight subversion, most Infernals are villains, though they don't have to be.)

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".
