* Yoda's force training of Luke in ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack". Oddly, this subverts the very trope it names, as Luke fails to rise to the occasion of using the Force to move his sunken X-wing out of a lake. This highlights the problem; Luke doesn't believe he can do it, and because he doesn't, he can't. He gives up until Yoda demonstrates how badass he is by raising the X-wing out of the water.

** It later gets a CallBack when Sabine must learn how to use [[spoiler:the darksaber]] and is hesitant for a number of reasons, one of which being she doubts she can even wield it and only promises to try her hardest. Ezra's response is "Don't try, just learn.".

* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'': Examines the trope when Kanan tells Ezra "Do or do not, ThereIsNoTry!" and Ezra retorts that it makes no sense: "How can I ''do'' something if I don't ''try'' to do it?" Kanan admits he always had trouble with that one, too, but "Master Yoda sure used to say it a lot!" Later they come back to the mental hang-up explanation for the advice.

Kanan will not ''try'' to teach Ezra the ways of the Jedi, he ''will'' teach Ezra the ways of the Jedi.
