* A Roman officer having just quelled a rebellion in Ilion is said to have smugly declared that Agammemnon with a thousand ships and leading all of Greece took ten years to conquer a city that he'd taken over in ten days, at which point a captive replied that [[MemeticBadass Hector]] wasn't there to defend it.

* Another UsefulNotes/WorldWarI example. In 1914, Austria-Hungary amassed its forces next to Serbia's capital city, Belgrade, and began bombing it. In charge of Belgrade's defences was a veteran of three wars, General Mihailo "Iron Man" Živković (yes, that was his ''actual'' nickname). When confronted with an ultimatum to surrender the city, General replied with a local cuss-word "[[YourMom Go to your momma's p*ssy]]". Bonus points: The Austrian messenger had ''no idea'' how to translate that to his superiors.

** Both the Navajo & Comanche codetalkers introduced a second layer of cryptography, substituting military terms that didn't exist in their languages with common words that did - e.g. Navajo "béésh łóóʼ" => "metal fish" for submarine. Comanche codetalkers in Europe referred to Hitler as "posah-tai-vo" => "crazy white man".

* An interesting RealLife occurrence occurred on Indian reservations in TheThirties. The Nazis [[ExploitedTrope thought Indians had little loyalty to America]] and would help them. In addition, the Nazis saw Indians as [[MagicalNativeAmerican lost Aryans]]. Further, they saw their plans for the Jews as little different than if Indians killed all the white people, which they figured Indians wanted to do. So a lot of Nazi propaganda was distributed on reservations by German anthropologists (also collecting intelligence in case Indian languages were used as codes). The result? Possibly the most epic ShutUpHannibal ever: tribes declared war (or renewed declarations of war from [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarI the last time]]) on Germany even before the United States did. Fascist and Nazi ideas were outlawed. And when the United States finally did declare war, Indians from their mid-teens all the way to their forties signed up, lying about their age when need be. And of course--the Germans couldn't tackle every Indian language, and thus the Navajo language was used by the US military as yet another critical part of the Allies' ''giant'' intelligence advantage in the War.

* In 2016, Andrew Wakefield, the man behind the fraudulent autism-vaccination paper,complained that his [[EntitledBastard civil rights had been violated]] when the Tribeca film festival, chaired by Robert De Niro (who also has an autistic child), pulled the film promoting his fake theories. ''Forbes'' contributor Kavin Senapathy responded with a blunt article titled [[http://www.forbes.com/sites/kavinsenapathy/2016/03/28/no-andrew-wakefield-youre-not-being-censored-and-you-dont-deserve-due-process/#4ce5c271225d No Andrew Wakefield, You're Not Being Censored And You Don't Deserve Due Process]].

* At the Congo's independence ceremony in June 1960, the Belgian King Baudouin gave a pompous speech on [[WhiteMansBurden all the contributions the Belgian's made in the country]]. Patrice Lumumba, however, called out the Belgian government for its mistreatment of the Congolese throughout its history. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome His passionate and unapologetic retort toward King Baudouin was so powerful that it caused the Belgian king to ''[[RageQuit rage quit]]]]''.
