* In Literature/{{Worm}} Skitter's success as a villain comes largely from her recklessness and ability to go on the offensive and catch enemies by surprise, enabling her and her team to succeed despite their weaker powers. One notable occasion sees her team gatecrash a soiree at the hero headquarters and disable them with their own containment foam sprays before they can react.
** [[spoiler: Skitter/Taylor]] develops such a reputation for this that when she's finally caught, surrounded by elite heroes with no costume, weapons and with her powers suppressed, she realises they are still acting wary. What does she do next? She smiles. [[spoiler: Then she calls out the heroes for their dubious actions, calls sympathetic citizens from the watching crowd to surround her and marches out of the building.]]

* [[WebVideo/{{Jimquisition}} Jim Sterling]] was sick and tired of Nintendo's policies of using ContentID claims to run ads on videos with their properties, especially since they're often violating Fair Use laws while doing so and thus taking money from YouTube users who use the material for their jobs[[note]]Because of how ContentID used to work if a claim was made on a video, any money from ads that ran on the video, or the payout from views to the video, would've gone to the claimant until the matter was resolved by a Fair Use claim, but since most of the views are from when the video is first posted then the primary amount that would've been earned for that video would've been lost to the video maker since they couldn't claim the money that was already paid to the claimant. Luckily YouTube have fixed this by making it that the money won't be awarded to either the claimant or the video poster until the matter is completely settled[[/note]], yet he wanted to do an episode on ''VideoGame/StarFoxZero''. So, what did he do? He did the episode... and included not only footage from ''Star Fox'' but also the games which have the most ContentID claims, including ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidV'' and ''VideoGame/BeyondTwoSouls''. He also included a minute of footage of himself dancing to a pop song as well, just for effect. It worked in his favor - because of how many claims were made on his video ContentID refused to give the right to claim to ''anyone''.
* If "Refuge in Audacity" was a religion, then David Thorne of [[http://www.27bslash6.com/ 27b/6]] would be the pope. Most times he ends up just messing with people via e-mail for fun, but he's actually had [[http://www.27bslash6.com/massanutten.html fines]] and [[http://www.27bslash6.com/blockbuster.html late video fees]] completely waived by just going off on tangents. In one of his books he responds to a simple "where were you on Tuesday" from his boss with a multi-paragraph essay that spans three pages graphically detailing the most-likely-false events that conspired to keep him home, warranting only a dumbfounded "ok" as a response.
* In a ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' short Griff uses this as his reason for saying if he were to rob someone he would use a hot air balloon and a clown mask.

*[[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment The Spoony One]] extols such methods as last resorts in an episode of Counter Monkey “The Bardic Knock Spell.” He recommends elaborate bluffs and performance improvisations when infiltrating or stuck in other difficult situations, particularly with Bard characters. Some favourite examples include simply knocking on the door of enemy hideouts (the aforementioned bardic knock spell,) and running into a guard barracks with his character dressed in nothing but glitter and feathers, covering his face and begging them not to look at him, as it had been a rough night.
