If Played for Laughs, then it's much less serious. Maybe there in a tussle and they throw one of these at one another to show [[FightSceneFailure how badly both of them suck at fighting]]. Bob and Alice (both only 5'3 and 100lbs) go at it but instead of throwing [[MegatonPunch powerful punches]] they slap at each other just to show that they both suck (double points if both slap at the same time and hurt each other).

*** 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.

* Subverted in ''Anime/DragonballZ''. Chi-Chi, Gohan's mother and the main {{Tsundere}} of the series, walks up to Majin Buu (who just destroyed almost the entire population of Earth) and slaps him, berating him for destroying everything. His response? He calmly turns her into an egg, and steps on it.

** 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.

* 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.
