* Two "tough guys" [[http://www.funnyjunk.com/funny_pictures/1274688/Chuck/ tried to rob]] ChuckNorris with knives, under the assumption that what he did in ''Series/WalkerTexasRanger'' [[RealityIsUnrealistic was all fake]]. The two ended up with arms so broken that bones were sticking out. The police didn't even handcuff them, partly out of concern for the thugs' injuries, and partly because they were laughing too hard to get the cuffs out.

* Creator/LeeMarvin, a pretty tough guy himself (he was a decorated WW2 vet) once picked a fight with Creator/RogerMoore, accusing him of looking and being too wimpy to be a credible action star. Moore convincingly kicked his ass. Afterwards Marvin was heard to say:-

** The upshot is: trying to rob a group of kids who have been taught how to survive hyenas, crocs, legavaans, other crooks and police raids with improvised weaponary is ill-advised. Even if they're in uniforms.

* An often-repeated and likely-apocryphal tale from the Vietnam War involves a US Navy frigate, usually said to be the USS Barbey, patrolling the Gulf of Tonkin off the North Vietnamese coast during the war. NVA shore batteries and patrol boats sometimes attacked US ships near the coast, which invariably resulted in a [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomp battle]] at sea but still posed a threat to unwary US warships, so the frigate was on high alert. At some point during the night, the frigate's surface-search radar picks up a large contact closing in on them. Lookouts soon confirm a silhouette in the darkness. The frigate has been ordered to operate under radio silence, so a signal light is used to hail the unidentified ship with Morse Code: "UNIDENTIFIED VESSEL, THIS IS USS BARBEY. IDENTIFY YOURSELF." There is no response. The frigate repeats her message, again no response. Finally, the frigate signals a warning: "UNIDENTIFIED VESSEL, THIS IS USS BARBEY. IDENTIFY YOURSELF IMMEDIATELY OR WE WILL OPEN FIRE." By now, the "scope-dopes" can tell that the radar signature is REALLY big, and the lookouts are saying the same thing. After a pregnant pause, the other ship finally replies: "USS BARBEY, THIS IS [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_New_Jersey_(BB-62) USS NEW JERSEY]]. [[BringIt YOU MAY FIRE WHEN READY]]."
** The smaller ship was actually the USS Bronsten, as USS Barbey was not commissioned until 1972.
** The CO of the Big J must have had a sense of humor to send a reply like that.
