'''Instead''': The earthbenders are imprisoned in some sort of natural valley that's entirely made up of earth. The only reason the place works as a prison is due to the Earthbenders having their own idiot moment.\\

* ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'': Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman are fighting Doomsday. The monster's only weakness is Kryptonite, which also is fatal to Superman. Batman has a Kryptonite spear with him.
'''You'd Expect''': Superman lets Wonder Woman, who has similar strength and speed but lacks any weakness to Kryptonite, use the spear instead.

* ''Film/BattlefieldEarth'', as you might expect, has tons of these, but here's the most obvious. After being captured by the Psychlos for slave labor, the hero, Jonny Goodboy, manages to kill one of the guards with his own gun. He runs away, but quickly gets caught by the alien leader, Terl, and brought back to where the guard was shot. Incapable of believing that a "man-animal" would ever be capable of handling a gun, he forces a guard to hand Jonny his sidearm to prove that he's harmless. Jonny promptly shoots the guard dead.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' After seeing Jonny shoot a guard before his very eyes, and having indirect evidence of him doing the same to another, Terl immediately has him killed. He's obviously dangerous and will only cause trouble for the Psychlos if he's kept as a slave.\\
