In some modern works, this is parodied by having the characters ''[[WillfullyWeak willingly]]'' impose a handicap to make things "fairer" for the enemies. The hero will make some BadassBoast to "fight you with one hand tied behind my back!" (or even ''both'' hands) and the villain will take him up on it thinking he's crazy. Maybe he is crazy, or maybe he ''isn't'', and the villain will be in for a ''very'' big surprise.

* ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' has an early scene where Jack Sparrow engages in a daring escape and sword fight while his hands are shackled. At one point he fights while one hand is stuck to a moving cogwheel. In the second movie, he doesn't do much fighting, but he still manages to pull off quite a lot of crazy stuff while tied to a pole.
** Jack actually ''wanted'' to be shackled, just so he could escape (first thing he did was use them to hold Elizabeth in front of him so he wouldn't get shot. Second thing was to use them as a pulley to slide down a rope). As soon as they got the cuffs on him, he says "Finally".
