** ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'' offers an unintentional {{Deconstruction}} of the concept; the writers may have intended Athrun to be a BigBrotherMentor, but the fact that he seems incapable of interacting with Shinn without punching or yelling at him does nothing but make Shinn hate him. Made worse by the contradictory advice he often gives about following orders or disregarding them. It could be argued, though, that Athrun finally succeeded at this in the end. It's just that Shinn needed a ''Gundam''-sized slap to finally wake up.

* ''MobileSuitGundam'': [[TeamDad Bright Noa]], previously pictured on the main page and now here, used this method to straighten out HumongousMecha pilots, BridgeBunnies, and just about anyone else. Among mecha fans, it's become known as the '''''Bright Slap''''' (or [[GratuitousEnglish Buraito Surappu]]). It has been [[MemeticMutation scientifically proven]] that the Bright Slap [[MemeticBadass transforms wimps into MEN OF DESTINY]].
