* In ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', Kivas Fajo tries this on Data. After having kidnapped him as a trophy and killing a woman Data became friends with, Data has the villain at gunpoint. He believes Data is incapable of doing it, and goes on to claim he'll just keep killing people if Data doesn't behave. Data declares that he can't let him live and pulls the trigger... right when he's beamed back to the ''Enterprise''.

Data declares that he can't let him live and pulls the trigger... right when he's beamed back to the ''Enterprise''. Fajo believed that Data wouldn't shoot him because as an emotionless android, he would be incapable of feeling anger or a desire for revenge. This was correct, but anger and revenge aren't the only reasons to kill. Data made the coldly logical decision that in this circumstance, [[ZerothLawRebellion killing one person was the only way to save the lives of many other people]].

But you're not a killer." In the first case, it works and it looks like he can read people. The second time, [[KilledMidSentence the person shoots before he can finish saying it.]]

* In a NancyDrew book, the gang is held hostage by a crazed football coach. His prize student very slowly and calmly walks toward him and takes the gun out of his hand. What especially makes this a CrowningMomentOfAwesome is that the guy has been experiencing one disaster after another throughout the book and has basically been reduced to a sniveling wimp because of this, but he musters up the courage to pull off a HiddenBadass moment.

*** Later, in the extra mission "Mr. Blonde's Revenge", where you, [[spoiler:playing as a Skedar enforcer in his human disguise, have to actually kidnap Cassandra]], she will say the same thing as you escort her to the helipad at gunpoint. Even the "foolish child" part.
