** Since Suzaku came to his senses before Kallen hit him, this could be considered an inversion of the trope.

** Kallen applied her ''[[http://i34.tinypic.com/rj45et.jpg Bright Seven Hit Combo]]'' to Suzaku. It ends up making him re-think his past actions and gets him to agree to meet Lelouch to try and work things out. [[FromBadToWorse But this being Code Geass, though...]] Also, it needs to be stated that Kallen didn't want to slap Suzaku back into his senses or anything, but only wanted the satisfaction of [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown beating him to a pulp]] out of annoyance for not being able to make up his freaking mind about whether he's a good guy or a bad guy. And did so while wearing high heels and a ''fancy gown''.

* ''Anime/{{Beyblade}}'' The manga version featured at least two accounts of this trope; once where Kai punches Tyson/Takao to make him snap out of self-pity after losing a battle and another in a later book where Tyson/Takao returns the favor, punching Kai.

** Averted with Lavi, when trying to get Lenalee to snap out of it after [[spoiler: Allen had lost his Innocence.]] He promptly got yelled at by everyone else for making her cry.

* ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'': Gabumon gives Yamato (Matt) a version of this where he BITES him when Matt is sinking into depression late in the series. Fortunately it snaps Matt out of it long enough for Gabumon to lecture him about [[YouAreNotAlone how he has friends who always stand by him including Gabumon himself]] and permanently restore Matt.

** Near the end [[spoiler: Kaname delivers an ''epic'' GetAHoldOfYourselfMan to Sousuke to snap him out of his HeroicBSOD, actually knocking him down with a [[DynamicEntry flying kick to the face]], and then hitting him several more times for good measure. Just seeing that she's alive probably would have been enough to snap Sousuke out of it, but, well, it's [[{{Tsundere}} Kaname]].]]

* In ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'', the Major [[HeroicBSOD BSODs]] after [[spoiler:encountering a traumatic memory in Kuze's cyberbrain]]. In an attempt to snap her out of it, her partner Ishikawa gives her several light whaps on the cheek. She 'comes around' a few moments later, but her BSOD was so deep it's debatable that she even felt it. Unusual in that it breaks [[WouldntHitAGirl one of those sacred tropes]], but since the Major was so out of it, coupled with the fact it's possible for the cyborgs to turn off their nerve endings, it's doubtful she felt much.

* ''[[Series/{{Kikaider}} Android Kikaider: The Animation]]'': Towards the end of the series, Saburo/Hakaider, EvilCounterpart to Jiro/Kikaider, has spent an episode stomping up and down on Jiro's BerserkButton, [[spoiler: putting him in serious danger of warping his Gemini [[RestrainingBolt conscience circuit]] with all his violent emotions.]] Jiro's reluctant LoveInterest, Mitsuko, snaps him out of it by bitch-slapping him back into his usual gentle self. It plays [[TheCoconutEffect exactly like slapping a human,]] complete with the sound of flesh slapping flesh, despite the fact that it is long and repeatedly established that Jiro, even in human form, is MadeOfIron. Sure, it's almost a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming, but the guy was freaking ''bullet-proof'' one episode ago!

* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'': Ryōga performs a Get a Hold Of Yourself Man punch on Ranma when the latter is experiencing {{Heroic BSOD}} [[spoiler:due to Akane's supposed death.]] Not only does that ''not'' work, but Ryōga ends up having to physically carry him away to safety. After that, Ryōga's attempts to snap him out of it fall flat until they find out that [[spoiler:Akane's still alive.]]

** In the Kyoto Arc, Sano decks Kenshin one less to snap him out of it and more just to express his anger at having been considered a weak link and ditched.

* In ''Anime/SuperDimensionCavalrySouthernCross'', Mary Angel slaps Jeanne Fránçaix after Francaix doesn't help shot down the enemies attacking their space ship, because it was her first time in space and her [[ParanoiaFuel paranoid]] fear of dying in space gets the best of her. After the slap, she snaps out of it and starts defending the ship.

** In Season 4, Yami Yugi gets one of this from Jounouchi. After causing the temporary "death" (soul loss, long story) of regular Yugi, he gets a HeroicBSOD, until Jounouchi tells him to snap out of it, and punches him in the face. It works, though he still mopes about it a lot, he actually ''does'' something about it, too.

** Keiko has a BSOD during Yusuke's fight with Toguro, imagining that the experience isn't happening, and that they are really back at school like normal. After the fight is over, she's still out, and, in a rush to wake her up, Yusuke slaps her repeatedly for half a minute, until she snaps out of it and knocks him to the floor.

** ''PokemonSpecial'': Crystal's mother slaps her when she is [[HeroicBSOD BSODing]] after her failure to capture Suicune in order to snap her out of this. Of course, the slap was edited into a glare in the American releases [[MoralGuardians for some reason]], so now not only is it less effective to the reader, it ''[[DubInducedPlotHole makes absolutely no sense]]''.

* Omega-Xis does a variation of this to stop Geo's panic attack in the second season of the ''MegaManStarForce'' anime. Being a head grafted onto Geo's arm, Mega has no hands to slap Geo with. He bites him instead.
