* [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0399007/bio During the Vietnam war, a particularly rowdy vietnamese soldier]] found himself having an argument with the Korean hand-to-hand instructor for the army. After the soldier proclaimed that knife-fighting could beat any martial art and issuing a challenge, martial artist Hwang Jang Lee, who would become an actor famous for his roles as a villain in Kung Fu films such as "The Snake in the Eagle's Shadow" and nicknamed affectionately "Bootmaster" and "Thunderfoot" and who had started learning Tang Soo Do at an early age, politely declined the challenge. The knife-totting soldier, however, still decided to attack the unarmed man. Dodging and repositioning himself, Hwang Jang Lee fired a roundhouse kick at his temple, with such tremendous power that the soldier died immediately. Hwang was cleared of all charges, as he had acted in self defense. Thunderfoot, indeed.

* [[RuthlessModernPirates Modern Day Pirates]] have to rely on outdated equipment to find their targets. Often they won't know what kind of ship they're attacking until they're almost on top of it. Occasionally, they make a ''big'' mistake.

* In early 2017, members of a [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/UsefulNotes/TheArabSpring Syrian pro-government militia]] (Desert Hawks) notorious for [[ShameIfSomethingHappened protection rackets]] spot a small motorcade driving [[https://www.clingendael.org/sites/default/files/2017-09/PB_Autonomy_Syrian_militias_NG.pdf towards the town of Qardaha]]. Figuring it belongs to a businessman or government official with money to spare, they stop the convoy and do their usual spiel about threatening arrests if they're not paid. Except this particular convoy happens to be carrying the President of Syria, Bashar al-Assad, who was heading to Qardaha to visit his mother's grave. The whole group present was [[HellholePrison thrown in jail]] by Assad's soldiers and the entire Desert Hawks militia was subsequently disbanded in August 2017.

** 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.

* The outlaw Jesse James came to grief when he and his gang tried to rob a bank in Northfield, Minnesota in 1876. Unfortunately for Jesse, he had forgotten that he was no longer in his usual hunting grounds of eastern Kansas and western Missouri... and the locals not only did not include any sympathizers of his, but had their life savings in the bank he was targeting and no sense of humor about losing those savings. [[OhCrap Oops...]] Save for James himself and his brother Frank, the entire gang was killed or arrested during either the robbery or the ensuing manhunt, effectively ending his crime spree. He himself was killed by a member of his own gang six years later to collect the bounty on his head.

* Some young men were routinely killing dogs in their neighborhood and killed one small Labrador. The owner came home, pursued them in his car with a gun, then held them at gun point until the Texas Rangers appeared and arrested them. The men threatened the man who had held them at gunpoint, saying he did not know who he was messing with.

* In February 1997 near Warsaw, highway robbers stopped a car. The men in the car turned out to be the coaches of the Russian and Belarussian teams driving home from the world biathlon championship - as in "skiing and shooting". The car was followed by the team bus - as in "fifty Olympic-class marksmen and equipment". Seeing athletes leaving it with rifles, the robbers guessed it's a good time to exit stage right, and quickly.

* On February 24th, 1984, a man named Gary Fadden accidentally cut off a motorcyclist. A while later, the man he had offended, a member of the Outlaws motorcycle gang, returned in a pickup truck with 2 more buddies. They chased Mr. Fadden and his fiance more than 22 miles, occasionally firing shots at his vehicle. Not knowing what else to do, Fadden drove to his workplace, where he assumed he would be safe, the US manufacturing plant for international arms manufacturer, Heckler & Koch. The pursuers drove their truck through the gate. Gary got out of his car and retrieved a Ruger AC-556 automatic rifle that he had been testing earlier that week. The main biker then hopped out and began to charge Mr. Fadden. Gary fired a burst into the air, [[BullyingADragon to which the biker replied "Fuck you and your rifle" and kept coming]]. Fadden then shot and killed the biker. He was later tried for first degree murder, but he was found innocent on grounds of self-defense.
