'''Instead:''' They let him walk away, to inevitably murder more innocents in the future, which in turn, potentially, could make the Joes guilty for his future crimes, not to mention aiding and abetting a terrorist and murderer.

* ''IpMan'': Ip has just destroyed ten Japanese black belts and is rewarded with many bags of rice.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' that he would take the rice and use it to feed his family and people, having made his point and avenged [[spoiler: Master Liu]]'s death.\\

* ''IpMan'': Ip ''IpMan'':
** BigBad [[NobleDemon General Miura]]
has just destroyed ten Japanese black belts and is rewarded with many set up a fight club within the occupied Foshan in which Chinese martial artists can fight his military trainees to win bags of rice.rice. At one point, Miura decides to fight three Chinese at once, and as an added bonus, he offers to give his opponents the rice just for participating. The fight begins, and Miura proceeds to [[CurbStompBattle own]] the three Chinese fighters, to the point that two of them give up within seconds.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' that Lin, the last of the Chinese fighters, to realise he's outmatched and give up as well. If he's not going to do so immediately after the other two, he would could at least do so after trying to fight Miura on his own.\\
'''Instead:''' He keeps fighting, and gets killed.
** Later on, Ip has just destroyed ten Japanese black belts at the fight club, and is rewarded with many bags of rice.\\

* The final battle of ''[[Film/TaiChiMaster Tai Chi Master]]'', in which [[TheHero Junbao]] is soundly beating [[BigBad Tienbo]]. Tienbo calls for his army to attack Junbao, but they refuse, since Junbao's ally Siu Lin has the corrupt governor at swordpoint. Tienbo charges towards Siu, who turns the sword at him.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Tienbo to take this perfect opportunity to disarm Siu, and perhaps kill her off while he's at it. Governor out of danger, problem solved.\\
'''Instead:''' ''[[DidntThinkThisThrough He kills the governor right in front of his entire army]]'', and tries to declare himself their leader. It's a simple matter for Siu to point out to the soldiers that Tienbo just killed their boss, and as a result of that, and Tienbo's BadBoss tendencies, they leave him to get his ass kicked.

* ''Film/SilentNightDeadlyNightPart2'':
** Jennifer's ex-boyfriend Chip gets Ricky annoyed enough that he ends up frying Chip alive with a car battery charger, as Jennifer watches.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Jennifer to run away and get help while Ricky's busy killing Chip, or else try and keep Ricky calm long enough for her to call the police and prevent him from killing anyone else.\\
'''Instead:''' She grabs hold of Ricky, starts screaming that he's crazy and yells "I hate you, Ricky, I hate you!", which just gets her added to the body count as well.
** Immediately after Jennifer is killed, a cop comes across Ricky and holds him at gunpoint, a good distance away. Ricky obviously isn't too intimidated by him, but isn't putting up any resistance.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' The officer to do what any halfway competent trained cop would do in this situation -- namely tell Ricky to get down on the ground, throw him a pair of handcuffs and make him put them on, all the while keeping his gun trained on Ricky.\\
'''Instead:''' He walks right up to Ricky, takes the safety off his gun and waves it in Ricky's face. Fortunately, he's saved from the indignity of having to explain why he accidentally shot an unresisting suspect in the face... because Ricky snatches the gun away and shoots him dead, before going going on his infamous "Garbage Day" rampage, resulting in at least three more deaths.
** At the film's climax, Mother Superior manages to escape from Ricky and arm herself with a knife. For argument's sake we'll accept that her being confined to a wheelchair means that trying to escape isn't a practical option, and that she reasoned that one of the neighbors ''probably'' called the police in response to a loudly ranting maniac chopping down her front door with an axe.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Mother Superior to keep the knife hidden, lure Ricky in close and then stab him with it. With any luck she'll be able to kill him first, and worst case she should at least get the pleasure of TakingYouWithMe.\\
'''Instead:''' As soon as Ricky enters the room, Mother Superior holds the knife in open view and essentially tells him "You're a naughty boy, so come here and let me punish you by stabbing you to death!" Ricky has a simpler solution, and just decapitates Mother Superior with his axe.

* In ''Film/{{Scream 1996}}'' the killers, [[spoiler: Billy and Stu]] have captured Sydney and plan to kill her by framing her father [[RedHerring who has not appeared since the beginning of the film]] and then killing him in "self-defense". To make the plan more convincing, they plan to cut themselves to make it seem like they "barely got out alive".\\

** During the brawl between the Joker and Batman, the Joker attempts to distract Batman after getting punched in the mouth by spitting out fake chatter teeth.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' The Joker would use the opportunity to quickly pull out one of his tools or tricks in order to put Batman at a disadvantage. Since the Joker is shown to have lots of guns on him, he probably would have taken the time to pull one out during the distraction and then shoot Batman to finish him off like he almost did earlier at Vicki Vale's apartment. Batman's suit isn't bulletproof!\\
'''Instead''': He decides to physically attack Batman, ''punching'' his Batsuit and '''injuring his hand''' in the process. If there's one thing Batman's suit can resist, it's definitely fists.
