* Charles Francis Adams was the American ambassador to England during UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar. He was convinced that a British company was building warships for the Confederacy. He sent a series of notes to the British Foreign Minister insisting that the British government stop this, since England was supposed to be neutral. The last note contained the sentence: "It would be superfluous of me to point out to your Lordship that this is war." The British government bought the ships in question.

* In ''FanFic/ThisBites'', listening to the horror happening on [[spoiler: [[Anime/BaronOmatsuriAndTheSecretIsland the secret island]]]] has virtually every superpower in the world, from Whitebeard, to Ace, to Dragon, gunning to sink the island into the sea, with the Marines planning on sending ''[[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill every Buster Call they have]]'' to make sure. And even that pales in the face of [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower Garp's]] rage.

* In ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'' Part 2 (''Battle Tendency''), the vampire [[spoiler:Straizo]] claims to have killed Robert E.O. Speedwagon. Joseph Joestar, who viewed Speedwagon as an uncle, responds by pulling a Tommy gun out of HammerSpace, giving the blood-sucker several dozen new orifices, and then issuing a declaration of war. Appropriately enough, Joseph is a GuileHero who's occasionally been referred to as Japan's answer to WesternAnimation/BugsBunny.
** In ''VideoGame/JojosBizarreAdventureAllStarBattle'', Joseph has a super move which re-creates this scene; its name is, of course, the same as this trope's.

* Layla, one of the characters in the superhero film ''Film/SkyHigh'', won't use her powers except in self-defense, which means she gets relegated to the Sidekick track, constantly teased, and thought of as a complete wimp. Then one of the bad guys, convinced that their side is about to be victorious and not being able to resist, slaps her. [[spoiler:"Big. Mistake."]]
