** [[BloodKnight Guts]] would get a few good smacks from his girlfriend [[FauxActionGirl Casca]] earlier in the series, for some serious moments like when she was forced to sleep naked on Guts to keep him warm or when Guts tries to interrupt [[ChessMaster Griffith]]'s meeting and when Guts has been knocked out by [[KillerGorilla Wylad]] its her love slap that gets him back on his feet and ready to save her. Other times Casca will just smack Guts when he's being a dick.

* Despite [[RubberMan Luffy]] of ''Manga/OnePiece'''s complete invulnerability to any blunt force damage, 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]]".

Maybe it's the boyfriend being slapped by the girl. If he had no idea why she was angry, or if she were a stranger, or if he were a total jerk, he would defend himself. Which is why this trope almost never happens to anyone but the guy who knows exactly why she's mad (whether or not he's actually at fault), regularly associates with her, and is at least half-way decent. Even if this guy is a master martial artist and she hasn't taken a single karate class in her life, she'll smack him silly because he all but ''lets'' her. Although less often, maybe she was with another guy, and that hurt him just that bad, to the point where he slaps her and storms off. (But normally, if it IS the boyfriend, he'll settle the score with the other man first....)

Why is the guy so powerless? Because it's a DoubleStandard. Maybe the 5 year old is just so angry that even the usually invincible hero doesn't know what's going on. Or perhaps it's just played for not-so-serious and we are supposed to be amused at how such a normal human ([[BadassNormal even if they are strong for normal]]) is able to injure someone who can tank a nuke easily.

Even if he/she doesn't quite understand it themselves, they instinctively know that if the slapper doesn't hurt him now, her wrath will fester into long-lived anger. Their association or relationship will be soured if not broken off altogether. Compared to that, a bit of mind-numbing pain seems the lesser of two evils -- if they're allowed to take their pound of flesh, maybe they'll be more inclined to hear apologies or explanations later.

And so, the slap effectively pierces his or her armor.

What matters is that a weaker person is slapping, scolding, or otherwise humiliating a stronger person... and the stronger person is so stunned -- or ashamed -- that he/she can do nothing.

*''Literature/ChroniclesOfTheKencyrath'': When [[spoiler:Torisen]] is posed by [[spoiler:their dead father]] and starting to go on a misogynistic, {{Fantastic Racis|m}}t rant, [[spoiler:Jame]] is shocked and without thinking, slaps him as hard as she can. It breaks the being-posed trance for the time being.

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).
