# The target of the threat is so much more powerful than the one making the threat that it's a case of either MuggingTheMonster or BullyingADragon.

* In an episode of ''{{Homeland}}'', Saul and Carrie try to blackmail information out of a rich Middle Eastern man. Their first threat, exposing him as gay, doesn't work, possibly because part of him wants to come out anyway.

* In the ''Series/BlueBloods'' episode "Men in Black," Jamie Reagan and Vinny Cruz arrest the previous mayor's daughter and her friend after catching them in the act of smoking pot on a park bench. The former tries to invoke the [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections "Do you know who I am?"]] card, but Jamie, who himself is the son of the current police commissioner and who's never used his father's pull to get his way, smirks and tells her, "I don't really care."

** In a similar vein, GOP Speaker of the House Paul Ryan [[http://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2016/10/21/13358274/paul-ryan-bernie-sanders warned of]] Bernie Sanders becoming the chair of the Senate Budget Committee in the wake of a Democrat takeover of Congress. Sanders promptly ran with the idea, raising over $2 million in the span of two days and spawning the sarcastic #ThanksPaul hashtag.

* Around about the start of the [=InVasion=] angle, when Wrestling/TheUndertaker was in his American Badass persona, he threatened StoneColdSteveAustin that he would "make [him] famous" if he messed with his family. This comment inspired Wrestling/DiamondDallasPage to start stalking Taker's wife Sara as part of his plan to get into Taker's head and upset him because, as DDP explained [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bI_6FI6FZ0Q&feature=youtu.be in his promo when he revealed himself as the stalker]], he ''wants'' to be famous.
-->'''Diamond Dallas Page:''' Duh! Taker, you idiot, Stone Cold Steve Austin's ''already'' famous! [...] Taker, you got a problem with me? Cool. I'm begging ya- ''make me famous!''

*In ''Series/TheWire'', a moment happens where [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pVvUTogRHBs Burrell threatens Cedric Daniels' career if he doesn't drop the Barksdale case.]] Daniels is not fazed:
-->'''Ervin Burrell''': FBI field reports... You came into a lot of money quick. You can go to jail just as quick if I start asking the right questions. This case ends, or you are done. Hell, I don't even need you to lock up Barksdale. I can have your major debrief the detectives and type the warrants himself. This case is done.\\
'''Cedric Daniels''': You do what you feel. You wanna pull Avon in on half a case, you go ahead. You wanna put my shit in the street, feel free. But the Eastern had a lot of stories - mine ain't the only one. A lot of people came through that district. If you were gonna do me, I'd already be done. But there ain't nothin' you fear more than a bad headline, is there? You'd rather live in shit than let the world see you work a shovel. You can order warrants, and I'll serve 'em. But as long as I have days left on those dead wires, ''this case goes on''.

* Marco Guttierez, a huge Donald Trump supporter, claimed that Latinos could do terrible things to the United States. For an example, he said if Trump isn't President, that there would be taco trucks on every corner. [[Memes/{{Politics}} The internet saw it as a promise, not a threat]].
