* Played with in a long-running cop show parody on ''CheckerboardNightmare''. The trope is so routine that when the chief pulls it more often than usual, the title character protests that "we've already turned in our week's supply of badges!"

* Parodied again near the end of ''WesternAnimation/WereBackADinosaursStory'', when [[spoiler:Stubbs the Clown resigns from Prof. Screweyes' circus and hands in his props. All his props: "Here's my shoes, my nose, my horn, my buzzer, my fake arm, my bug-eye glasses, my backstage passes, my hat, my rabbit, his backstage passes, my fake fangs, a few birds, my pogo stick, my donkey ears, my extending tongue gag, my rubber chicken... ya can't even get these anymore... my lucky whale tooth, and a giant clam that opens to reveal the American flag held by a mermaid and her normal brother Richard!"]] If you thought reading the description was funny, it's even better in the movie.

* Judy Hopps from ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' is told to do this by Chief Bogo for failing to solve the 48-hour case. But Nick Wilde stands up for Judy, saying that there's still 10 hours left and no one was helping Judy out.

* Hellboy, Liz, Abe, and Krauss do this at the end of ''Film/HellboyIITheGoldenArmy''.



* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'':
** Picard denies Worf a leave of absence to complete a mission regarding his Klingon honor, so he resigns his Starfleet commission. A mildly annoying example, because when the mission is over, he walks back to his post on the Enterprise with no explanation, and nary a comment from Picard or the rest of the crew.
** Subverted in an earlier episode, where Worf kills Duras, a member of the Klingon High Council in a duel. Granted, Duras has just killed the mother of Worf's child (aboard the ''Enterprise'', no less), but this, at the very least, should have cost him his commission. The only thing that saves him is the fact that the Klingon High Council considers the matter closed (that and the fact that they don't even want to acknowledge Worf's existence after his discommendation). Picard also points out that a letter of admonishment will be appended to his service record, so Worf's promotion prospects were pretty dire until the Dominion War came around.

* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'': After Officer Judy Hopps appears to have failed in her investigation, which she was to solve within 48 hours or resign, Chief Bogo demands her badge. Subverted when Nick Wilde speaks up, reminding the chief that she still has ten hours left.
** [[spoiler: She eventually turns in her badge on her own terms when she feels that she tore the city apart with her statements at the press conference.]]
