  • Probably the most hilarious version of this trope being done was with an Achievement Hunter stream of Destiny 2's Leviathan Raid ending. The team, comprised of Geoff Ramsay, Ryan Haywood, Jack Patillo, Michael Jones, Jeremy Dooley and Alfredo Diaz, has been heavily frayed due to everyone wiping terribly, Alfredo being unable to get in a word edgewise over what to do and Ryan's desire to rush through the entire thing and "learn by doing". Alfredo gets to the point where he finally blows up at Ryan, roaring "WHO'S BEEN CARRYING YOU THROUGH THIS GODDAMN RAID?! Who's been telling you how to wank your own dick?! It's been me!"

  • Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog has Captain Hammer dating Penny solely to hurt Dr. Horrible, in addition to the massive amounts of pain and suffering he's put him through in the past, causes him to snap and decide the one he's going to kill is Hammer. "Brand New Day" is all about this trope.
  • The Freakonomics blog features a story about negotiation showing how setting the initial point of a negotiation can have a large influence on the final outcome. Specifically, the writer gives an example where he was served spoiled food at a restaurant, and the manager offered only waive the charge for drinks rather than the price of the whole meal. She gambled that the writer wouldn't make a public scene to demand further concessions. Sure enough, the manager won that round — until the NY Times bestselling writer went on to publish the restaurant's name and address on his blog.
