* Owen ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'': ** This is the only type of hug [[BigFun Owen]] is capable of, with thin and [[TheCynic unenthusiastic]] Noah usually being the target. ** Dwayne pulls Junior into a relieved hug when they manage to reunite after getting separated in "My Way Or Zimbabwe", and [[AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents for once]], Junior doesn't mind the attention and returns the hug from ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland''his squished position. However, when Dwayne gives him a second, tighter hug later on, Junior has to remind his dad not to squeeze him to death. ** [=MacArthur=] occasionally lifts Sanders into the air this way to celebrate victories. Sanders usually enjoys the gesture, but she reacts badly when [=MacArthur=] attempts to do it while her arm is in a cast.
