* In ''Series/LegendsofTomorrow'' when Ray Palmer/the Atom and Amaya/Vixen are both being held prisoners by Nazis and Ray is being forced to synthesize a super-serum. He asks for the cuffs on his wrists to be removed to make it easier for him to work, saying "What am I gonna do? Beat you with a microscope?" He is, of course, denied. Later, he actually does this (while handcuffed) and helps Amaya break free of her restraints. She hits a few of the soldiers with the (now broken) chair she was sitting in, he quips "Aww, I wanted to do it with just the microscope!"

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Jaime thought he could do this to Brienne, but she proves far more skilled than he thought and armoured as well, while he is unarmoured, bound, and weak from imprisonment. Brienne simply remains on the defensive and uses body-blows until Jaime becomes clumsy with exhaustion.

* [[ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman Doomsday]], only partially out of the super-strength straitjacket he'd been buried in for millennia, manages to decimate the Justice League literally with one hand tied.

Most heroes are so BadAss that they can outfight your {{Mooks}} even while they're physically restricted. Their hands might be tied, but they can still kick. Chained down, they can still dodge. [[ChainedHeat Shackle two together]] and you'll just have BackToBackBadasses. Plus the odds are pretty good that they'll [[ImprovisedWeapon make clever use]] of their binding, as garottes, club, or flails -- see HandyCuffs. And also that they'll be BreakingTheBonds.

** In another episode, Iroh gets captured by soldiers from the Earth Kingdom. After a first clever but failed escape (he asks one of the guards to ''tighten'' his shackles, superheats them by blowing steam out of his nose, and burns the guard's hand), he is soon caugh again and has to be rescued by Zuko. Once freed, however, he proves his BadAss fighting skills (alongside with Zuko) by using his long shackles to beat up all the guards in a matter of seconds.

* Discussed and parodied in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/MutantLeague'', when Razor Kidd tells the strong {{Badass}}, "I can beat you with one hand tied behind my back!" Of course, the strong guy rips off Razor's arm as a literal response, and the latter snaps back, "Hey! I said ''tied!''" Razor even tries to kick the strong one, who quickly rips off his leg as well!

** [[HeroicComedicSociopath Iori]] [[{{Badass}} Yagami]] has the legs of his pants tied with a belt, and he still has an awesome footwork (have him perform a hard kick up close to the foe; he stretches his leg almost vertically but somehow doesn't pull his standing leg out from under himself), although in his case it's more of a fashion statement than an intentional handicap.

* In the first ''VideoGame/BaldursGate'', bandits and guards are occasionally heard quipping "I can take Drizzt with both hands tied behind my back.". With a cheat code, it is possible to summon Drizzt and prove how terribly wrong they are, as Drizzt is totally {{Badass}} in this game...

* Naruto and Harribel spar this way in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5919763/1/Shards Shards]]'' due to her martial arts style being used primarily by slaves who frequently had their arms bound, making her a KickChick when not using her sword.
