* From ''Fanfic/TheLifeAndTimesOfAWinningPony'': -->'''Changeling''': I suppose I should thank you, though. I admit, some of my plans did not develop entirely to my satisfaction, and the fact that you found my papers earlier than planned was unfortunate. However, Im sure my queen will overlook such minor affairs when I present her with the corpse of one of the Element Bearers. -->'''Rainbow Dash''': Over my dead body! -->({{Beat}}) -->'''Changeling!Nimbus Gust''': That would be the idea in presenting your corpse, yes.

* ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'': Sherlock and Moriarty face off properly for the first time: -->'''Sherlock:''' [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim What if I was to shoot you now]] ''(raises gun)'' right now? -->'''Moriarty:''' Then you could cherish the look of surprise on my face. ''(Makes [[FoeYay exaggerated O-face]])'' 'Cause Id be surprised, Sherlock; really I would. And just a teensy bit disappointed. And of course you wouldnt be able to cherish it for very long.

[[folder:TabletopGames]] *In ''TabletopGames/BattleTech'', just before an enemy force touched down on the planet Twycross, the local commander of the Falcon Guard, Ravil Pryde, complained to a technician that one of the lasers was malfunctioning on his mech- as soon as his computer cycled to it it was automatically firing. He threatened the technician with reassignment somewhere else if he failed to fix it before the battle. As Twycross was regarded as a ''very'' unpleasant planet due to being a DesertWorld with constant winds that blew huge sandstorms across the surface of the main continent, the technician did not regard this as much of a threat. When Ravil went into battle against the attacking Archer's Avengers, his laser misfired, hitting their dropship as it was landing. This attack violated the safe conduct Ravil had previously guaranteed for the landing, and the Avengers proceeded to attack all out, destroying the entire Falcon Guard and [[LaserGuidedKarma killing Ravil]] in the process.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', Santa's Little Helper sires a bunch of puppies, which look like him with tufts of the mother's poodle-like fur accenting it. Bart and Lisa trying to get rid of them (in a box labeled [[AC:"Free Puppies"]], no less), and run afoul Snake: -->'''Bart''': Hey, mister, would you like a puppy?\\ '''Snake''': No...''([[WouldHurtAChild flashes his pants-holstered gun]])'' but I'll ''take'' one!\\ '''Bart''': ...okay!\\ '''Snake''': ''(running off to his car with a puppy, brandishing his gun)'' I'm gonna love and cherish this little dude...and there's nothing you can do to stop me!

* In a Genocide run of {{VideoGame/Undertale}}, any attempts at threatening [[BurgerFool Burgerpants]] will get you nowhere. He's been beaten down by his job to the point that he truly does not care about being threatened at all, even though you're an OmnicidalManiac at that point. -->'''Burgerpants:''' Sorry, little weirdo. Threats won't work on me. I can't go to hell. I'm all out of vacation days.

** Same for when a terrible customer says "I'm never shopping here again." The store staff will still try and placate them as best they can, but in their heads they're thinking "Good." Especially if the cashier didn't actually do anything wrong and the store is unlikely to be affected by one person not shopping there. If the store staff still have their jobs the next day ''and'' one less terrible customer, this threat is more likely to be laughed at as soon as the person leaves than actually work.
