* In Act III of ''VideoGame/TheWitcher'', Geralt finds Carmen, the resident HookerWithAHeartOfGold, out in the swamps, mustering courage to cross them in an attempt to reach the druids' hideout. When Geralt points out that a frail city girl like her won't have a chance against the high-level monsters roaming the swamps, she says she's got a dagger and will make it somehow, because the druids ''may'' have a cure for her TrueLove's lycanthropy.

* In ''Literature/LordOfTheRings'', Sam attacks [[GiantSpider Shelob]], the daughter of a monster even Sauron's former boss Morgoth had trouble handling, with a knife. The book itself points out how outmatched he is, but [[UndyingLoyalty Sam]] is so furious that she dared to lay a claw on [[TheNotLoveInterest his beloved master]] that he [[RoaringRampageOfRescue runs at her without even thinking about it]]. Against all odds, [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu he wins.]]

Naturally, [[BigBad Aku]] exploits this, and swoops down on him as soon as he finds him - whereupon Jack, who up until this point was constantly on the run, accepts his fate and attacks Aku with his ''bare hands''.

While it looks like the Inquisitor will charge next, they instead lunge sideways to [[spoiler:activate a trebuchet they prepared earlier to fire at the mountainside and cause a slide to bury the entire town]].
