A character graciously concedes a point while trying to save face. This is usually accomplished by saying words such as "Touché" (a term in fencing that acknowledges an opponent landing a hit), "point taken", "I stand corrected" (both when losing an argument) or "Well played".

* In ''Webcomic/ExterminatusNow'' Silas constantly gets attempts on his life from [[TheStarscream his second-in-command]]. Not only does Silas expect this, he already undoes most of what the second-in-command was going to do when it's revealed. The usurper takes it rather gracefully, all things considered, shaking hands with Silas and complimenting him on his foresight. Of course, Silas still kills him, but at least they were polite about it.

There can be any manner of stakes and the form of defeat can vary from losing a minor argument to being OutGambitted in a war.

* Lara and Pierre in ''VideoGame/TombRaiderAnniversary'' have a small spat over whether or not one's compulsion can make or break an archeological find:
-->'''Lara''': I trust my instincts.
-->'''Pierre''': And that is why you are in second place! I am a professional, mademoiselle. I focus on the job and I get paid.
-->'''Lara''': There's more to life than money, Pierre.
-->'''Piere''' This isn't life, mademoiselle! It's business! Your compulsion prevents you from seeing the difference!
-->'''Lara''': It hasn't prevented me from getting a piece of the [[MacGuffin Scion]]. How's business for you?
-->'''Pierre''':...Touche. Well then, why don't we see who gets the next piece?

When Bradley follows this trail to track her down, he finds [[spoiler:her arm, completely cut off and tied to a dog]]. "That was well-played, girl."
