** In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E6TheVampiresOfVenice "The Vampires of Venice"]], Rory faces down a vampire with a broom, which he attempts to use to intimidate the vampire, by flailing it around wildly as if he was a master swordsman, while making ''lightsaber noises''. Unfortunately for him, the vampire he's facing ''is'' a master swordsman. Cue OhCrap on Rory's part.

* The sword-fighting abilities of [[FakeUltimateHero "Da Samurai"]] (don't confuse with the main character) in ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'', [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation could be interpreted]] like this. Despite this, his fighting style served him well enough to take down a couple of robots in a tavern.

Sometimes, when someone is trying to show off martial arts, they just look goofy. They flail around, fall over, smack into stuff, and a whole bunch of other things. Expect a PricelessMingVase to get broken, or even the would-be black belt's own bones.

** In one episode called "A Star Is Born", there are auditions for a commercial about karate. Bulk enters the audition and shows of his "incredible karate skills" (read: making random movements while shouting). He passes the audition, but at the end of the episode we see the finished commercial; Bulk is the "[[BeforeAndAfterPictures before]]" and Tommy (who actually ''is'' a competent martial artist) is the "[[BeforeAndAfterPictures after]]".

* ''Film/ShoalinSoccer'': After humiliating a bunch of toughs with his kung fu soccer prowess, the main character is confronted by a scrawny nerd who sketches out a kata while farting. The main character just tells him that he's pathetic and walks away, which reduces the nerd to tears.

* In an episode of ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'', Will Smith visited a dojo to learn martial arts. He finds a convenient block of wood on a stand and tries to hand chop through it. One hurt hand later he tries it with his foot and actually manages to break through it (though he still hurt his foot doing it). Then he finds a samurai sword lying around while waiting for the sensei. He picked up the sword and proceeded to strike dramatic poses with it while talking with his mouth out of sync with his words. The sensei came in while he was going this and asks him if he's having fun and tells him that everybody tries that. On the other hand, he wonders who broke his coffee table.

* All of the Snickers Ad featuring Creator/RowanAtkinson as a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xnd0CAloRHo&nohtml5=False wannabe Kung Fu student]]. Of course, when Series/MrBean tries martial arts, the result can only be disastrous. Unusually, though, he manages to ''not'' hit himself too hard with the nunchakus, but that's mostly because he'd rather make percussion music with them.

* ''Discworld/InterestingTimes'' shows that FightingWithChucks takes some time to get the hang of even if you're a veteran BarbarianHero [[BadassGrandpa who's still at it in his eighties]], and has just [[CurbStompBattle nigh-effortlessly mopped the floor with their previous owner]] to boot.

* ''Film/{{Help}}'': Ringo during a fight scene. Everyone else pretty much ignores him, until he breaks down sobbing because [[ItMakesSenseInContext they manage to paint him red.]]
