Added DiffLines:

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' involves a DirtyCop kidnapping the Girls because he thinks they outshine the actual police; the more benign cops are the ones who pull the BigDamnHeroes moment.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' featured a real life {{tearjerker}} moment where the first episode after 9/11 had New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani introduce actual 9/11 responders to the audience in the ColdOpen. Talking with Lorne Michaels, Michaels asked if they (after an event like this) can be funny. Giuliani replied "[[TakeThatUs Why start now?]]" to a standing ovation. In a retrospect Tracy Morgan said he greeted the responders and patted one on the shoulder, seeing dust fly off; they literally came from the field.

* [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]]'s hammer, Mjolnir, cannot be used or even lifted by any but the "worthy". History shows that this worthiness is not a common trait (even among the Avengers, only ''ComicBook/CaptainAmerica'' has been able to wield it), but a random paramedic, not even named, once picked it up and handed it back to him.

* In ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'', when Teana suffers a HeroicBSOD after realizing [[CantCatchUp she'll never be an ace of the Bureau]], Nanoha (herself one of the most decorated aces) gives her a pep talk that boils down to the idea that the [[SpacePolice Bureau]] doesn't need more aces--it needs honest, hard-working young people who get the job done--like Teana. Of course, Teana would later go on to be an Ace herself.

* In the episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' where Milhouse is chosen to play the KidSidekick in the new Radioactive Man film, Milhouse invokes this trope after being sick of shooting the picture and running away. Bart however responds that they are all pathetic losers who have done nothing of value and that the true heroes are the Van Dammes and the Stallones.

* Film/{{Hancock}} This is a DiscussedTrope. Ray tells him to say "Good job" to the local policemen to improve his image. Hancock responds "If they're doing a good job, then why do I have to show up?" Ray then gives the They're-Not-Invincible line from the description. He ultimately does it, and the policeman says it right back.
