* In ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'', when [[LouisCypher Lucius Needful]] later betrays Summer (AKA "[[PersonAsVerb Zuckerberging]]" her), she and Rick proceed to go through a TrainingMontage that leaves them comically muscle-bound and beat him up during a live presentation. Granted, [[TheDevilIsALoser Needful's a loser]], but they are still literally punching the hell out of Satan.

Granted, [[TheDevilIsALoser Needful's a loser]], neither physically intimidating and relies on trickery]], but they are still literally punching the hell out of Satan.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' has the protagonist Dipper hurl himself at a giant [[spoiler:Bill Cipher, the closest thing so far that the Gravity Falls world has to a god as far as we know, in the midst of his planetary invasion. Dipper tries to punch him in the eye but gets forced back and thrown to the ground at the last second.]]

* [[OnceAnEpisode An everyday occurrence]] in ''RegularShow''. Though it's almost always in an outrageous fashion. Example; defeating a giant floating eye monster in a ''staring contest!''

* ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'' has the Gang [[spoiler:destroy the Nibiru Entity, a {{Satan}}-like interdimensional alien with god-like power, [[RetGone erasing him from time in the process]].]] Like the ''TheRealGhostBusters'' example above [[spoiler:they do so by sucking it into a black hole, in this case created by destroying the crystal sarcophagus it was using to draw power from another dimension, causing the connection to implode.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse2002'', the protagonist has to fight Serpos, the mountain-sized ([[NotHyperbole and we mean it: its sealed form is a literal mountain]]), three-headed snake god. After a long fight, He-Man punches it so hard it ''shatters'', before sealing it away again (because even that had not been enough to kill it).

** ''WesternAnimation/ExtremeGhostbusters'' had them dealing with [[NorseMythology Fenrir]], who was trying to bring about the end of the world but apparently the original crew had already captured his master Surt in an untold tale. In Ragnarok, it's Surt who actually kills the most humans.

Added DiffLines:

*** This particular example isn't quite fair since [[spoiler:Gunter is actually an EldritchAbomination of his own right known as Orgalorg, and is actually on par if not more powerful than Hunsen and The Lich, which, in turn, is also taken down by invoking this trope.]]

Added DiffLines:

** The Scotsman's Wife in the episode she's introduced winds up punching an evil celtic deity in the gut, and subsequently taking him out. He shouldn't have called her fat.

** In Book 2 Episode 10, ''The Library'', the gang succeeds in escaping from the Knowledge Spirit not with bending...but with Sokka dropping down with a [[DominicDeegan death from above]] style blow to the head with a ''[[ThrowTheBookAtThem book.]]'' It practically knocks the spirit out cold.
