* Despite [[RubberMan Luffy]] of ''Manga/OnePiece'''s complete invulnerability to any blunt force damage, [[GoldDigger Nami]]'s slaps often cause his entire face to become [[AmusingInjuries swollen and bruised]]. The WordOfGod explains this by saying that "[[ItRunsOnNonsensoleum she beats up his spirit]]".

* In ''VideoGame/LunarTheSilverStar,'' Nash [[spoiler:abandons the party and later prepares to fight them in a silly-looking suit of armor, now titled "Magical Weapon Nash."]] So Mia slaps him in the face, which snaps him out of it. It helps that [[spoiler:the armor doesn't exactly protect his face to begin with]].

*** In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', she does it again when he calls her old but she manages to get away with it. In a later arc, one of the signs that Goku is [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness unusually nervous]] is that he dodges one of Bulma's slaps instead of letting her hit him.

*** Bulma later slaps Goku towards the end of the movie and it's played straight.

* Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon gave Daniel Bryan an ultimatum - relinquish the WWE title or his wife Brie Bella would be fired. Brie took a third option and quit - and delivered a massive smack to Stephanie's face (and got a massive pop from the crowd). The slap was so impactful, Stephanie actually fled backstage almost immediately.

* ''VideoGame/EternalSonata'' inverts this trope by having Jazz (male) use an armor-piercing slap on Falsetto (female) in one cutscene. And then he hugs her. This scene also subverts the DoubleStandard which is closely tied to this trope.

* Toward the beginning of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'', [[BadassPrincess Ashe]] delivers a rather undeserved armor-piercing slap to Basch. Granted, it's the first time she's seen him in two years, and as far as she knows he was [[spoiler:executed for [[FalseFlagOperation murdering her father in cold blood]]]].
