* ''TwoWorlds'' allows both the player and most humanoid enemies to use it. This often leads to absurd situations where 5-6 opponents keep trying to kick dirt in your face instead of, you know, hitting you.

* ''SuperPunchOut'' features Masked Muscle, who cheats repeatedly. One of his moves is to spit in your eye, making everything blurry and preventing you from attacking for about ten seconds.
* In a particularly awesome example, in ''{{Utawarerumono}}'' Hakuoro (the hero) and Oboro (TheLancer) have just started fighting, presumably to the death. Hakuoro is pretty tough, but Oboro is better. When he gets injured along the arm, he flings his own blood into Oboro's eyes, blinding him and throwing off his balance so he can't fight any more. Of course, his arm is bleeding rather heavily, so it essentially ends in a draw.
* The LucasArts game ''FullThrottle'' aloows to throw a fist full of fertilizer in the face of a goggle-less biker with the chainsaw.
* You can do this in both ''BushidoBlade'' games by hitting the Subweapon buttons without a subweapon in your possession. However, this is a serious breach of Bushido and sinks your invisible KarmaMeter in the first one.
* ''GuildWars'' Rangers get the 'Throw Dirt' ability which blinds foes.
