* 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]]

** 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.]]
