Considering the Power Rangers entry: would it be fair to note the subversion in the form of why the Rangers never call the Robot first? (In-series, it's justified in that one of the rules of being a Power Ranger—and, IIRC, being able to tap into the Morphing Grid—is that you never escalate a conflict.)
Used in the episode of reboot episode "http://reboot.wikia.com/wiki/My_Two_Bobs" when they suggest that the pokemon style "fighting monsters" should just step on the trainer and kill it, as opposed to the whole poke-dual.

How well does it match the trope?
