* In ''Film/WhiteChicks'', a mugger grabs the expensive purse being held by a wealthy socialite and runs off. What he doesn't expect is for the "socialite" to chase him for several blocks, tackle him to the ground, and beat the crap out of him with surprisingly heavy punches. Said "socialite" is actually a male FBI agent dressed as a woman.

** In a more straightforward example, one of the prison guards takes an immediate dislike to the titular Djin, and gets more and more frustrated with the guy's SmugSnake attitude, considering he had no justifyable way to strike at the guy who was ''very effectively'' passive-aggressive undermining his authority, instead of being intimidated by the clear size and weight class difference, so then he orders the Djin back to his cell before making the error of ''wishing'' to be alone with the Djin in human form, to enjoy ''the long, slow dance of pain.'' [[OhCrap He got his wish.]]

* ''Film/MrsDoubtfire'': Robin William's character, disguised as the old woman who is the TitleCharacter is crossing the street. A purse snatcher walks up behind him and grabs the purse. After a brief struggle, and "Mrs. Doubtfire" enters a stance with a very credible threat of physical force, the purse snatcher wisely walks away.

* In ''Film/FlickeringLights'', two young men, who are clearly new to the whole crime thing, try robbing the main character's restaurant. The problem is that all of the main characters are hardened criminals who are in hiding and trying to go straight, and they are therefore not frightened at all by the two men's rather pathetic attempt at being intimidating. Especially Arne who just laughs coldly at them before delivering a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown on one of them, and it is obvious he would have tried to outright kill them both if TheLeader, Thorkild, hadn't held him back.
