* You could say this is a deconstruction- before the invasion of Normandy in 1944, Major Howard (6th Airborne, first unit to arrive in France and engage the Germans) was visited by Montgomery, the overall British commander. Monty told him that 'whatever happens, bring the boys back home alive' (paraphrased) Howard later recalled that while he understood the brass didn't want a repeat of [[WorldWarOne the Great War]], he believed their duty was not to survive, but to accomplish the mission, and that's what Monty should have given the pep talk about. Part of the brass' concerns about keeping the troops alive and safe probably stemmed from the disastrous results of the Battle of France. An army which is beaten but escapes can come back to fight another day; an army which is wiped out or captured could spell the loss of the war.

* In ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited'' there's an episode where a group of the JL women have been brainwashed and thrown into a ring to [[{{Catfight}} fight it out for the entertainment of a crowd]]. They manage to overcome the brainwashing, but then the four of them get pitted against a brainwashed Wonder Woman, and this trope is basically what they think of their chances.
