* Happens twice in the GrandFinale of ''WesternAnimation/ActionMan'' (the 2000 series). The first time this trope is played completely straight; Action Man demands Professor Gangrene lets Rikkie go while the former threatens to throw the later out of the airship. Gangrene is more than happy to comply with this request. The second time, when Quake threatens to throw Fidget into a lava pit, Action Man [[GenreSavvy is more carefull with his choice of words]] and specifically demands he puts her down safely on the ground. Not that it stops Quake from throwing her into the pit anyway.
