* WesternAnimation/{{Megamind}} ''tries'' to do this, but unfortunately for him he underestimates just how big the explosion is and how much debris is flying through the air, with the end result that he just ends up scurrying in away in complete terror:
-->'''Megamind:''' Oh, I'm too close! I'm genuinely scared right now! I hope no one can see this!

* In ''WebAnimation/RWBYChibi'' parodies this during a segment with some of the characters arguing over what movie they should watch. Sun suggests an action movie and, at one scene, he and Neptune walk away slowly from a building. Neptune asks why they're doing so, only for Sun to grab his shades and put them on as a building explodes behind them.
-->'''Sun:''' That's why.

* [=ShineGreymon=] from ''Anime/DigimonSavers'' gets an absolutely '''''EPIC''''' one [[spoiler: after assuming [[SuperMode Burst Mode]] and shrugging off an attack from Kurata's OneWingedAngel form like it was nothing, in the process surrounding himself and Kurata in huge flames. He proceeds to walk slowly towards Kurata without paying attention to the several story high flames he'd just created. This combined with the absolutely hate filled DeathGlare he's shooting Kurata while doing it makes it rather clear the reason he's not looking at the flames because the only thing on his mind is giving Kurata exactly what he has coming to him.]]

* [[BadassGrandpa Zeno]] from ''Manga/HunterXHunter'' plays with this in the Chimera Ant arc. After being challenged by [[spoiler: Cheetu]], Zeno advises him to LookBehindYou and walks away--right as his son [[ProfessionalKiller Silva]] falls out the sky and crushes [[spoiler: Cheetu [[ShapedLikeItself like an ant]]]], complete with a [[GroundShatteringLanding huge explosion and crater]]. Bonus points for casually dodging the flying debris without even looking, and for apparently walking a few steps away just to invoke this trope, as he was waiting for Silva to show up in the first place.

* ''FanFic/DungeonKeeperAmi'': The Avatar Restored goes on one after regaining his true shape. Previous to this event, he was a trasformed ''female'' troll, and had undergone fifteen years of desperate survival against a continent of undead. This, in turn, was following his witness of the slaughter of his entire family, and all the survivors of the war; men, women, and children alike. [[spoiler: Not to mention his possible ''rape'', transformed, remember? He was the 'troll' at the end of ''VideoGame/DungeonKeeper''...]] Having regained his old form and power, he is understandably eager to vent his frustrations on Ami, as she is a keeper- in his anger he doesn't particularly care that she's essentially a heroine acting in an ambiguously villainous manner so that her minions don't rebel. Ami is understandably reluctant to attack him, but resorts to more and more desperate measures. Eventually blasting him with every spell she knows, sending waves of golems at him, channeling the might of Mettalia to turn the floor into a mass of living hands to encumber him, dropping the ceiling on him, and glamoring more powerful minions into weaker ones to mount surprise attacks. The Avatar weathers them all, until... she attempts an indirect assault, [[spoiler: and sticks him to the wall with a gigantic electro-magnet.]]

* In ''Film/JurassicWorld'',ACU Trooper Miller essentially flips off the ''I. rex'' by standing his ground and firing his shotgun repeatedly at it. [[spoiler: He got eaten]], but by doing so, the last three soldiers -- one of them severely injured -- survived the attack and escaped ''I. rex'' pursuit, all thanks to his badassery. And to top it off, he's not just holding his ground; he's calmly striding ''towards'' the damn thing as it's charging right at him.

** Also happens in the first ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'' after defeating Thardus (the rock monster). All of the rocks explode outward and Samus just casually strolls away.

** When leaving the [[spoiler: Raven Rock complex, after setting President Eden to self destruct]], you will quite possibly ''have to'' do an unflinching walk, since all the soldiers therein carry so much valuable loot (we're talking really high-end stuff) you will probably have amassed ten or fifteen times your maximum run weight limit before you even leave. Of course, you can always do it intentionally anyway.
