* OlderThanTelevision: Theatre/CyranoDeBergerac had a very large nose, which a bit character insulted by calling it "rather large." Cyrano's reaction was to tell him that it is, but "rather large" was an absolutely pathetic excuse for an insult and go on to tell him various better ways to insult him. The ''{{Wishbone}}'' version went with:
-->"'Your nose is so big, you should call a doctor and have it amputated!' Or how about, 'What do you keep in there, your pens or your whole writing desk?'"

* ''Literature/NowBloomsTheTudorRose'': Regarding the belief that Magnus Vasa is so RoyallyScrewedUp he thinks he's Jesus Christ:
-->The rumors are completely wrong. Magnus merely believes he's the prophesized First Horseman of the Apocolypse who rides a white horse and comes conquering and to conquer. He is deeply--DEEPLY--offended when people get it mixed-up.

* Pisha in ''VideoGame/VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'' is a rare vampire who has to consume human flesh, which makes her pretty off-putting even to a regular vampire. A Malkavian player character might [[TheNicknamer nickname]] her "Black Widow", in which case she takes no offense but explains how "Mantis" would be a better pejorative. As a FullyEmbracedFiend well into her third century of unlife, she's worked out the existential angst long ago.
