There are a lot of times in film and stories when a hero or heroine drives back an enemy or keeps him or her at bay for these reasons:
- Protect someone.
- Give someone enough time to make a getaway.
- Deter the enemy's blows.
- Make a getaway.
Usually the hero or heroine does this with pepper spray, food, or, in some cases, tossing sand or dirt into the enemy's eyes, or slamming something into the enemy's face.
They can do this using Combat Techniques.
- Oh and Tip slam a car door on Officer Kyle's face and blast him with popcorn, melted cheese and nacho chips to make a getaway as they squabble.
- TJ Detweiler and Principal Prickly pour hot chowder on the Ugly Bald Guy to protect the kids.
- While battling the German Mechanic, Indiana Jones tosses sand in his eyes.
- Morph turns himself into a pie and throws himself at Scroop's face, then jabs him in the eyes with two fingers to protect Jim Hawkins.
- Tuffy Mouse jabs Tom Cat in the eye with a trident to protect Jerry Mouse and his friends.
- When hunting dogs chase Bambi, Flower, encouraged by Thumper to put on his brave face, lets loose a fart, driving them back with skunk spray.
- Andrew Waltrip throws pepper into Tabitha's eyes to protect his foster mother.
- Mowgli tosses dirt into Shere Khan's eyes to help Shanti and Ranjan make a getaway.
- Lady Tottington squirts flower spray into Victor Quartermaine's eyes to protect Were-Rabbit/Wallace.
- Rei stops a hypnotized Makoto from taking the Silver Crystal.
- Peaches swings on a vine and gives the evil Captain Gutt a crushing kick to save her mother.
- Dean and Sam Winchester wedging iron candlesticks onto the back of the Phantom Shadow, given that iron functions as a ghost's weakness.

|“||[Once the book itself, a light blasts towards the sky, activating a vortex that sucks all the Goosebumps into it, starting with the Abominable Snowman of Pasadena and the Werewolf of Fever Swamp. Other monsters, such as the lawn gnomes, the Graveyard Ghouls, the Mummy, the Scarecrows, and Murder the Clown, are sucked in as well. As the Blob that Ate Everyone gets dragged towards and is sucked into the book in a manner similar to a flushing toilet, R.L. Stine manages to free himself and retrieve his glasses. He looks up to see the Giant Praying Mantis getting dragged towards the book as well before hearing a wicked laugh. It's Slappy, and he jumps on him, catching him by the throat.] (Slappy the Dummy: Slappy's not happy!) Neither is Stine... stupid DUMMY!

(Peaches grabs a vine from the mast with her trunk.) I got this, Dad! (Manny: Peaches, no! It's too dangerous!) Not if you're half possum!
