** Pretty much the last 3/4 of ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E12HellBent Hell Bent]]'' is one big version of this trope directed at the Doctor, when he [[spoiler: threatens to destroy time in order to save Clara; Clara, herself, gives him one after he shoots the General, though she forgives him instantly once reminded of regeneration; she later gives him a more emotional one when she learns he tortured himself for billions of years in order to try and save her from death.]]

* ''Series/LittleHouseOnThePrairie'':
** When you hurt Charles Ingalls' family, you don't want to cross his path -- as Pa will beat you senseless and beyond the point of just beating you down. An infamous example came in the 1982 episode "He Was Only Twelve," wherein adopted son James (Creator/JasonBateman) is wounded while walking into a bank during a bank robbery. As his son lie dying in a hospital, an irate Charles recruits Mr. Edwards and Albert to track down the criminal gang that did this, and when they do, Charles knocks down the leader of the gang and chokes him to the brink of unconsciousness, even long after he had been beaten. Only when Edwards shouts out, "For the love of God, Charles ... LET HIM GO!!!!" does he relent. [[note]](This was a revised script from Series/{{Bonanza}] (the Season 13 episode "He Was Only Seven"); here, it is Michael Landon's Little Joe character that pleads for Roscoe Lee Browne to release his vice grip from the lead bad guy's neck.)[[/note]]
