* Film/StarTrekVTheFinalFrontier: "What does God want with a starship?" Consider that Kirk is challenging either a) The Real McCoy (no pun intended) or b) an alien who holds the fate of Kirk and his crew in the palm of his hand. The potential for that not ending well was immense.

* The ending of ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles II'' Splinter's reaction not withstanding. Consider, four mutant ninja sewer-dwellers duking it out with two super-mutants and a squad of ninjas, in a dance hall, to an impromptu rap song by Vanilla Ice, who then proceed to toss high-fives to the crowd, then hop onto the stage, perform dance moves and shout "Give it up for a Turtle!" None of the people there find this weird. Instead, if their reaction was any indication, they thought it was AllPartOfTheShow ([[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible if unusual for a hip-hop performance]]).

** In ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', General Hux gives a speech condemning the New Republic for supporting the Resistance against the First Order. Never mind that Hux and pals have been cruising around in star destroyers that are totally illegal for them to have under their treaties with the New Republic, or that he is giving this speech right before firing a hyperspace PlanetKiller at the New Republic's capital.

* Several of the {{Morally Bankrupt Banker}}s in ''Film/TheBigShort'' flaunt this attitude, proud of how much money they're making for essentially selling shoddy goods.
-->'''Mark Baum:''' I don't get it. Why are they confessing?\\
'''Danny Moses:''' They're not confessing.\\
'''Porter Collins:''' They're bragging.

** The Contingency Orders for the Grand Army of the Republic. Order 66, the one that Supreme Chanchellor and future emperor Palpatine used to destroy the Jedi Order states that the Clonetroopers are to kill every single Jedi in case they receive an authenticated transmission from the Supreme Chanchellor stating that the Jedi have rebelled. Order 65, that never gets to be activated, is to ''arrest the Supreme Chanchellor if he's declared unfit, and use lethal force if necessary''.

* An infamous deleted scene from the first ''StarWars'' movie shows Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca, and Princess Leia strolling through the corridors of the Death Star, their faces uncovered and their street clothes clearly visible, but also conspicuously sporting some stark white utility belts they have stolen from Imperial stormtroopers they've knocked out and/or killed; all in full view of the Imperial personnel! Apparently, the only explanation is that Han, Luke, Chewie and Leia figured that the enemy would find this sight so funny or brazen or unbelievable that they'd dismiss it. (One theory is that George Lucas shot this scene for no other reason than to [[RuleOfFunny add to his personal blooper reel]].)

** {{Jedi Mind Trick}}s in general utilize this, such as in ''A New Hope'', when Obi-Wan straight-up tells a Stormtrooper "These aren't the droids you're looking for..." on Tatooine.

** There's a scene in ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'' where Qui-Gon, who has a death order against him, has to save some pilots that have been captured by battle droids. He simply walks up to the droid commander and asks for them to be released so he can take them to Coruscant. It almost works, too; it takes the confused droid several seconds to comprehend what's going on, and by then he's in lightsaber range.

* Both in and out of universe in ''Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome''. The film crew tested the plausibility of Kirk and company walking around San Francisco dressed like people from the 23rd century by dressing staff in the characters' costumes and having them walk around San Francisco. [[CityOfWeirdos Nobody gave them a second glance]]. In the movie itself--with the exception of Chekov--the former ''Enterprise'' crew got away with being profoundly weird, with no consequences.

* ''Film/KentuckyFriedMovie'' has "Rex Kramer: Danger Seeker!" who, after dressing up in typical daredevil attire, goes into the middle of a group of black men in an alleyway, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7S5BP-tvR8 shouts "NIGGERS!" and runs off.]] The sheer ridiculousness of it makes the men stand around looking at each other, giving Rex a 2 second head-start.
