** However this tendency does get subverted in the case of Frieza; after Frieza has been dismembered by his own attack, Goku not merely spares him, but actually ''gives him energy'' to escape the impending planetary destruction (that Frieza caused,) which would kill Goku but let Frieza survive because he can breathe in space. All Frieza had to do was simply fly into space and let Goku suffocate, but his ego is such that he tries to attack the demonstrably stronger Goku from behind, showing that even a particularly AllLovingHero can run afoul of TheFarmerAndTheViper.

* Parodied in ''SaturdayMorningBreakfastCereal'' where it turns out this message was actually part of Jesus now-forgotten lesson of ''passive-agressiveness''. The point of turning the other cheek wasnt to show mercy or grace, it was to make the other guy feel like a huge dick and hurting him without using physical force.

* {{Jem}} often gets called out on this by some fans. Throughout the course of the series, The Misfits have put Jem and the Holograms in situations where where the latter group could have been killed, but Jerrica / Jem never calls the police (she likely had her reasons...).

* ''TheBoondocks'' had Huey narrate a story about an AlternateHistory where Martin Luther King Jr survived getting shot and simply went into a coma, waking up decades later in our present day. When interviewed about the 9/11 bombings, King, as mentioned in the Real Life section, affirms his belief in this trope. Unfortunatly for Dr King, this is the bloodthirsty post-9/11 America, which immediatly decries him as a traitor, a coward, a communist, and any other word they can come up with, even his own original supporters. This, combined with his disgust at what modern black culture has become in his absence, eventually leads to Dr King giving a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to the people who deify him while ignoring everything he actually stands for, and abandoning the U.S to go to Canada.

* ''Literature/{{Schooled}}'': Cap grew into a patient pacifist thinks to his hippie upbringing. Despite being subjected to every cruel prank possible by Zach and the other bullies at Claverage, they simply can't get a rise out of him.
