* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft: Walords of Draenor'', there's a scene in which Chieftain Durotan's hot-headed brother Ga'nar comes to him enraged that he refused to take part in his campaign of revenge and challenges him to a duel for the leadership of the clan. Durotan asks him whether he thinks this is what their father would have wanted, and throws down his weapon and tells Ga'nar to go ahead and kill him. That's enough to make Ga'nar stand down and accept his leadership again.

* Many ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' games allow you to talk to demons instead of fighting them as soon as you encounter them. If the conversation goes well, there will usually be options to end the fight, either through peacefully parting ways or having the demon you just talked to join you. However, it's also possible to piss off the demon and have their party take a free turn at you.

* This is a key tactic of BugsBunny's. Just when his pursuer has him cornered, he changes the subject and tricks his foe into dropping his guard long enough for Bugs to escape or retaliate.

* ComicStrip/BeetleBailey has lots of tricks for avoiding Sarge's incoming rage. Usually this involves distracting him, especially by making him think of food, but also invoking other things such as Creator/JohnWayne. He also once confused him by shouting back to him as if to an inferior or at most an equal, which he can't handle since it's so much out of the norm. That said, Beetle ends up being beaten into a pulp more often than not, sometimes in spite of an attempt at Verbal Judo.
