* Alice doesn't shoot -- but she fixes Bob with a absolutely scorching DeathGlare and warns him not to test her, suggesting that she indeed has not only the resolve, but also the anger necessary to pull the trigger, and its only a wafer-thin thread of morality, patience, or even pity for Bob that (just barely) holds her back from actually doing it. Bob quickly realizes that he has gravely underestimated Alice his bravado instantly vanishes and he backs down from his challenge, if [[AintTooProudToBeg he doesn't outright starting meekly begging her not to hurt him]].

* In the ''ComicBook/{{Blacksad}}'' album "Somewhere within the Shadows", Statoc says this to Blacksad. [[BoomHeadshot He is quickly proven wrong]]. Blacksad also notes that without the jolt of contempt he felt from Statoc's upfront taunting, he probably wouldn't have pulled the trigger.

* The plot of the film ''Film/EightMM'' is that PrivateDetective Tom Welles is hired to investigate whether a piece of film that appears to show a group of men murdering a young girl is real. Over the course of the film he finds that they really did murder the girl, and begins tracking down the men involved. The first one he corners, played by James Gandolfini, taunts him about how stupid it would be to shoot him with a gun that's legally registered in Welles' name, then says that Welles doesn't have the guts to do it anyway, even going so far as to ''lick the barrel'' of the gun pointed at him. Welles doesn't shoot him... until after he takes a minute to talk to the mother of the murdered girl and hit a RageBreakingPoint. Then he [[ExtremeMeleeRevenge bludgeons Gandolfini's character to death]] with [[PistolWhipping the butt of his pistol]] instead, [[TakeAThirdOption thus neatly avoiding how a bullet fired from his gun could incriminate him]].

* A classic example happens in the ''[[BattleTechExpandedUniverse [=BattleTech=]]]'' novel ''Dark Destiny'' when Myndo Waterly, Primus of [=ComStar=] and by then more than a little off her rocker and flush with her imaginary conquest of both the Clans and the Successor States in one fell swoop, declares to her Precentor Martial Anastasius Focht who's just returned from the hard-fought actual battle that did in fact stop the Clan invasion on Tukayyid while she was scheming behind his back that she knows that as an honorable warrior he'd never just shoot her and she is therefore free to just walk out of the room and have him arrested for disagreeing with her own maniac vision of the future. [[spoiler:Focht then shoots her in the back of the head.]]
