Three separate duels are fought (culminating in the infamous Burr-Hamilton duel that costs Alexander Hamilton his life), each to a distinct ten-count musical motif. ''Ten Duel Commandments'' even lays out the steps of the Code Duello for the audience, from issuing the challenge to picking seconds to "the moment of adrenaline".

* In the first (by order of events) ''Literature/HoratioHornblower'' story, Horatio ends up in a duel with another midshipman. Neither is wounded. Later on, the captain tells Horatio that he had arranged for both pistols to contain a short charge of powder so that neither man was likely to hurt each other. He then says that while proving you have the courage to fight a duel is good, having the sense to not get into any more is even better, and has Horatio transferred to another ship so that he doesn't butt heads with the other midshipman anymore.

* In the ''Series/EnemyAtTheDoor'' episode "The Prussian Officer", Reinicke challenges the Prussian officer von Bulow to a duel after von Bulow humiliates him (and [[spoiler:inadvertantly gets the woman he loved killed]]) and escapes official censure. Von Bulow accepts, despite Major Richter reminding them that duelling is illegal. The duel takes the form of pistols at dawn; the duellists are depicted pacing away from each other, then standing facing in opposite directions until the umpire calls "Fire!" [[spoiler:Reinicke turns and fires first -- and misses, leaving von Bulow the opportunity to return fire at his leisure. After letting Reinicke sweat a bit, von Bulow deliberately and obviously fires wide, makes a sneering comment about Reinicke's aim, and walks away.]]
