* ''Fanfic/DungeonKeeperAmi'': In [[https://forums.sufficientvelocity.com/threads/dungeon-keeper-ami-sailor-moon-dungeon-keeper-story-only-thread.30066/page-3#post-6355722 "What a Mess"]], Roselle stops Juzint's assassination of Melissa, with lightning that threw off her aim:
--> The pinkish-white arcs of lightning from the hurried shot fanned out, raking the left arm of the blurring shadow, just before she could reach her target [...] A spasm went through Juzint's leg, just at the wrong instant. The flow of time seemed to return to normal, but instead of intestines spilling out of the blue-haired girl's stomach, only blood surged from the four crimson lines drawn across her belly.

* ''Film/AlitaBattleAngel'': Zapan raises his sword to attack Hugo, but just before he can finish his downswing, Alita skates in and grabs his arm by the wrist.


* In Marvel Comics' GI Joe issue #15 "Red-Eye To Miami" Snake Eyes, Doctor Venom and Kwinn escape from crazed mercenaries in Sierra Gordo aboard an old but functional Lancaster bomber. During the flight, Dr Venom tries to drop Snake Eyes out the bomb bay doors, but fails. An angry Kwinn then lifts Dr Venom over his head and is about to throw him to his doom. Snake Eyes puts a hand on Kwinn's elbow, belaying the execution, because Venom is the only one who can land the damaged aircraft safely. Fridge Brilliance because as a mute, Snake Eyes can only communicate through gestures.

* In ''Film/TheHobbitTheBattleOfTheFiveArmies'', Thranduil's and Ironfoot's armies wave their weapons and beat their chests until they're [[EnemyMine interrupted by Azog's arrival]]. In the Extended Cut, they actually ''come to blows'' and viciously tear each other's lines. In an ironic twist, the dwarves overwhelm the elves using ranged weapons, and elven spears cut down a dwarven cavalry charge. When Azog the Defiler arrives, however, they immediately put all differences aside and launch a joint, if poorly coordinated, effort to defeat the orcs.
