* Subverted in ''Film/{{Logan}}''. The introduction to the title character has him waking up to find some gang members jacking the rims on his car. Wolverine delivers the audience-expected asskicking, but finds it much harder going that we've seen in previous movies with the character. Also counts as RRatedOpening, as the fight is a lot gorier.

* In ''Film/FlickeringLights'', two young men, who are clearly new to the whole crime thing, try robbing the main characters' 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.

* ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService:'' Dean's goons decide it would be grand to disrupt Harry's meal at the pub. As expected in any movie with such a scene, the goons are neatly disposed of (following his PreAssKickingOneLiner), and he and Eggsy walk out calmly not the worse for wear.

* 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.

* ''Film/JackReacher'': Five youths try to fight Jack Reacher, the guy who hunts army criminals, who all are trained killers. Needless to say, it does not end well.

** 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.]]
