** And Jun to Tetsuya from ''Anime/GreatMazinger''. Given that Tetsuya TookALevelInJerkass when he was angry or upset, and Jun had little patience for stupidity, it is not surprising. A good example happens in the last episodes: Tetsuya is jealousy from Kouji, thinking Kouji will replace him and then everybody will forget about him. When Jun tried to reassure him it would not happen, he accused her of wanting to replace him with Kouji, too. She slapped him hard. Given that Jun had spent the whole series chasing after him while Tetsuya remained oblivious, it is entirely understandable.

** When Viserys gets violent with Daenerys in "Cripples, Bastards, and Broken Things", she slaps him across the face with a medallion belt, which leaves him speechless.
** Balon's response to his son's IronicEcho is a backhand that sends him halfway across the room.

* in ''VideoGame/EquinTheLantern'', glove items have a Slap move that drains some of the enemy's stamina while not costing any from you. Unfortunately, the stamina damage is too low for it to matter most of the time and the stronger enemies and bosses always have unending pools of it anyway.
* ''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.
* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'', having Lenna choose to [[spoiler:kill the last wind drake]] to cure her mother results in King Tycoon giving her a slap that knocks her down, since Queen Tycoon has already refused to let her life be saved that way.
* 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]]]].



* Several of the female enemies in ''VideoGame/GodHand'' have Armor-Piercing Slaps as attacks. Gene himself has a few moves (such as Pimp Smack) that might qualify as well.

* Villainous example: ''VideoGame/MapleStory'' has Female Boss/Anego, a rather old-looking woman who can deal ridiculously heavy damage with a slap.
* While escorting Meryl in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'', if you decide to [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential smack her in the face]], she responds with a slap that, while only about as damaging as your punch to her (that is, not very) knocks Snake flat on his ass.
* In ''VideoGame/MitsumeteKnight'', the main heroine, Sophia, delivers one to the Asian, the main protagonist, if he doesn't take upon himself after being insulted by Sophia's [[DrowningMySorrows drunken father]]. She may be aware that her father is a pathetic wreck, [[BerserkButton but do not slander him in front of her]] (unless you're, CG-wise, going for HundredPercentCompletion).



* Ms. Mowz in ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'' has a literal version: her Love Slap attack [[ArmorPiercingAttack ignores Defense]].
* In ''VideoGame/RadiataStories'', the protagonist's older sister delivers these to him every once and a while.
* ''VideoGame/RuleOfRose'': In a major turning point for her character, Jennifer gets to deliver one to [[spoiler:The Princess of the Rose/Wendy]] after several hours (our perspective)/months (her perspective) of abuse, [[ImpliedDeathThreat implicit threats on her life]] and [[KidsAreCruel general nastiness]] when she discovers [[spoiler:Wendy killed Brown]]. NoHoldsBarredBeatdown ensues.
* In ''VideoGame/RuneScape'', at the end of the "Garden of Tranquility" quest, when the King starts deriding all your efforts, the player is left thinking "[[WellExcuseMePrincess Well, excuse me Your Highness!]]" Then, the Queen, who up until that point has been quite a bitch, steps up and requests to speak to the King privately. She delivers him an armor piercing slap (that delivers 10 LP damage), and tells him to be grateful.
* Red of ''VideoGame/{{Solatorobo}}'' ends up on the receiving end of these from Elh twice. Once after a Shower of Awkward, and once for [[spoiler:ignoring Elh in favor of his fangirl posse]] in the Prairie Kingdom Cup [=DLC=] quest.

** Although Shinji has no armor when slapped things are awesomely- inverted in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' games: when ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Bright Noa]]'' slaps Shinji, Shinji starts to get his act together, gain a spine and a thicker skin, and gradually evolves into a {{Badass}}. There's a reason that such slaps were originally known as [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan Bright Slaps]].

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'':
** In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban'' has Hermione getting fed up of Malfoy's mocking Hagrid (though her temper is amplified by lack of sleep) so she smacks him right across the face. Malfoy is so stunned that he runs away. The film changes it to her threatening him with her wand, and then punching him on the nose.

* 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.

Other times Casca will just smack Guts when he's being a dick.
