* In ''MyCousinVinny'', on the third encounter with the Big Pool Player who owes Marisa Tomei $200, Vinny is distracted and in a hurry, and waves the guy off as he, the Alabaman, taunts the New Yorker with the $200. Waves him off, waves him away, [[CurbStompBattle tackle]]. Vinny gets back up $200 richer, hardly breaking his stride.
* In ''ReturnOfTheJedi'', Luke Skywalker seems to turn away from the Emperor's taunting, but suddenly swings back to force grab his saber and take a slash at the old fart. Darth Vader blocks him.

The enemy is taunting you. He's making fun of your parentage and the size of your manhood. Nevertheless, you start walking away from the confrontation. Maybe you're severely outnumbered or maybe you just want to be the better man. After all, {{Jesus}} said, "Turn the other cheek." But Jesus didn't have his girlfriend watching and wondering whether sex with you was a mistake or not. Suddenly you turn the other fist and strike, taking your enemy totally off guard.

** ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'': This is how Picard as a cadet started that fight with those Nausicaans that earned him a knife through the chest in ''Tapestry'', after one of them said he had no ''[[PardonMyKlingon guramba]]'' and calls him a coward for trying to turn away from a gaming dispute.

* ''Film/MoneyTrain'' plays with this. Foster brothers John and Charlie have made a tactic out of this. In a high stress situation where a fight is about to start, (usually with a coworker, boss, or someone else it would be a bad idea to start a fight with) one of the brothers will pretend to act as the peacekeeper[=/=]OnlySaneMan by stopping his brother from throwing a punch, and then go ahead and do it himself. So, for example:
-->'''Charlie:''' (Goes to hit JerkAss fellow cop who is insulting him, then John stops him)\\
'''John:''' (Has back to JerkAss cop as he speaks) Charlie, you're not going to hit him!\\
'''Charlie:''' Why not?\\
'''John:''' Because ''I'm'' going to hit him! (John turns and lands a surprise punch on unprepared JerkAss)
