** [[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon Turtonator]] has a critical weak point on its chest, and its shell is incredibly tough.

* In ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire]]'', this is Mega Sceptile's default pose, apparently to make use of its tail as a weapon.

** In an EXTREMELY [[RuleOfFunny hilarious]] example in [[TheDCAU 1990s animated series]], Batman actually got ''Decked'' by [[CloudCuckoolander The Creeper]] while the latter was trying to hit up Harley Quinn, and was sent across the room, without the Creeper even ''acknowledging his presence''.

* In ''Manga/DGrayMan'', General Cross Marian is so {{badass}} that he can one-shot three Akuma that try to jump him from behind ''at once'', without looking. [[http://www.onemanga.com/D.Gray-Man/142/12/ Do not mess with Cross]].
* Balalaika from ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' also gets in on this in the Washimine Arc. When the leader of the Washimine Clan tries to kill her by drawing a sword and attempting to kill her from behind he finds himself having been stabbed instead and with a knife at his throat. She throws in a PreMortemOneLiner, which she asks Rock to translate, just before [[NeckSnap snapping the leader's neck]] in a display of pure evil {{Badass}}.

* Apparently deciding that taking out a dragon wasn't enough for proving her {{badass}} credentials, [[spoiler:Yue Ayase]] of ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' managed to do this to a demon trying to sneak up on her by stabbing it in the torso with a {{BFS}} she pulled out of thin air.

** The above is a MythologyGag. When we first see Vergil draw Yamato in ''Devil May Cry 3'', he slices a Hell Vanguard into several pieces without even turning to face it, establishing himself as every bit the {{Badass}} his brother is. [[spoiler: Makes sense, since WordOfGod confirms that Nero is Vergil's son]].

* Machinima/RedVsBlue: Tex ([[{{Badass}} who else?]]) pulls this off during the training session against three other Freelancers in Season 9. Rather than actually attacking her opponent though, she simply ducks and lets his punch hit the opponent in front of her.

Compare OffhandBackhand (suddenly striking someone behind you without even looking), and also to InTheBack.

* The ''EternalFighterZero'' character Unknown, takes this trope even further by having her ''default standing animation'' face away from the players and her opponent.
