* In ''Podcast/AnimeSlushie'''s {{WebAnimation/RWBY}} Volume 8 Preview, Cube reacts harshly to the commentary's claim that there are no retcons in the show:
--> '''Feen''': So this is one of my favorite lines from all of the commentary. "Many things that seem like retcons are actually not, and instead is just [[DistinctionWithoutADifference Kerry and Miles learning how to tell a story while simultaneously telling the story. So things were not always explained well early on.]]"
--> '''Cube''': I'm leaving.
--> '''Feen''': Guys,
--> '''Cube''': I'm walking away.


Not to be confused with LineInTheSand, where a general gives his troops the opportunity to leave before a suicidal battle. Nor OptOut, in which someone quits for reasons of principle rather than mere frustration or cowardice. This trope is only for characters who cut and run without their superiors' knowledge, permission or both. Also not to be confused with HeelFaceTurn or MookFaceTurn, where someone on the bad guys' side decides not just to walk away, but actively to join the forces of good. If they resort to a violent solo career (or in company with other deserters), they're a DangerousDeserter. Compare KnowWhenToFoldEm.

KnowWhenToFoldEm, where getting the hell out is actually the wisest course of action.


[[{{Mooks}} Henchman Bob]] is beginning to have second thoughts about his career with the EvilOverlord. Maybe he's dissatisfied with the lack of advancement opportunities, what with the BigBad's tendency to kill subordinates for [[YouHaveFailedMe "motivational" reasons]], [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness personal utilitaristic reasons]] or [[BadBoss no reason]]. Maybe he's smart enough to realize that [[StormingTheCastle the next visit from the good guys]] won't end well for Team Evil. Or maybe Bob's just sick and tired of [[KickTheDog kicking puppies]] for a living.

** Another humorous song parody, "The Twelve ''Pains'' of Christmas" by Bob River, has the guy with the fourth pain, sending Christmas cards, give up and say he's not sending them this year while the guy with the second pain, rigging up the lights, ends up yelling "Fine! You're so smart, [[LetsSeeYouDoBetter YOU rig up the lights]]!"

-->'''Traffic Reporter:''' ...about an hour and a half ago. We've had no official explanation. Police estimate some three, four hundred people. They just...they just got out and walked. God... We've gotten confirmation, we cannot find anyone. I've never seen anything like this.

* In the ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' episode "Best Day Ever," a {{Subverted|Trope}} example occurs when Tukson attempts to get as far away from the White Fang as possible by escaping to Vacuo. Unfortunately for him, it doesn't work out as Cinder's henchmen corner and eventually [[KilledOffscreen kill him offscreen]].

*** The Aeldari Craftworld of Lugganath have this as their hat, this and close ties with the Harlequins, the badass devotees of said Laughing God. The Eldar of Lugganath are so horrified and disgusted with [[CrapsackWorld the state of the galaxy]] that they want to flee into the Webway and form a brand new civilisation. This probably qualifies them as the most sensible people in the whole setting. The only problems with this plan are 1) they have to find a Webway portal big enough for an entire Craftworld and 2) they have to get rid of the Webway's infestation of Dark Eldar first.
