* Discussed in SaintSeiya during Seiya's early fight with Shiryu and even referred to as such. In a twist, Shiryu's in possession of ''both''; his shield too strong for Seiya to breach while also having considerably greater raw strength at his disposal. Seiya ultimately solves the conundrum by tricking Shiryu into attacking him in such a way that when he dodges, he ends up punching into his own shield. [[spoiler: The shield breaks, but Shiryu also nearly breaks his hand in the process and is forced to continue the fight without his Cloth.]]

* Grant Morrison's ''ComicBook/AllStarSuperman'' has Superman being asked this question. His solution? "They surrender."

* In ''HoshiNoSamidare'', Yukimachi and Subaru's paired attack and defense directly allude to this - they call their telekinetic attack "the Strongest Spear" and their telekinetic shield "the Ultimate Shield." They pick the names from a story shared by their teacher, the Master, about a spear that could penetrate any shield and a shield that could block any spear. In the hands of a single warrior, that warrior would be unstoppable. The Master then clasps their hands together, declaring the two together to be "the warrior."

** In the newer lore, there's how Olaf gets to join Sejuani's Winter's Claw, the former is a nigh-unstoppable Berserker Viking that gets stronger the closer he is to death, the latter is a boar-riding lady that is [[StoneWall utterly hard to take down]]. Olaf plowed through Sejuani's forces like wet paper and their personal clash caused sonic booms throughout the realm of Freljord, and none of them gained clear victory.

Result: [[spoiler:Rho Aius is pierced, but it took pretty much all of Gae Bolg's power to do that, so Archer survives the remaining impact force.]]

* They don't actually use this phrase, but this is arguably what happens in ''Film/LittleShopOfHorrors'' when DepravedDentist Orin Scrivello (played by Creator/SteveMartin) meets [[TooKinkyToTorture masochistic patient]] Arthur Denton (played by Creator/BillMurray). After trying in vain to make Denton suffer, Scrivello throws him out of the office in disgust after realizing that Denton is actually ''enjoying'' everything Scrivello is throwing at him. (Fun fact: This scene is based on a similar scene in [[Film/LittleShopOfHorrors the original 1960 film]], in which the masochistic patient is played by a young Creator/JackNicholson.)

* ''Film/TheAvengers'': Thor's Hammer vs Captain America's Shield. The result? The force of the impact doesn't hurt Cap, but is instead reflected into a shockwave that levels all the forest in their vicinity. The phrase isn't used in the movie itself but in the wider MCU: Thor's movie called his hammer the ultimate weapon and Cap's movie called his shield the ultimate defense.
