** In the manga Sailor Venus eventually starts exorcising possessed people by hitting them with her chain. She also enacts this trope by accident during the Exam Battle: while she exorcised Rei with her own Shinto exorcism technique consisting in applying an ''[[PaperTalisman ofuda]]'' (also Rei's), she was so surprised by the possessed Rei trying to kiss her she [[PunchedAcrossTheRoom slapped the talisman on her face with enough strength to send her flying]].

* Several seasons of ''Series/KamenRider'' have had Riders rescue hostages from inside the MonsterOfTheWeek using violence.
** [[Series/KamenRiderOOO Kazari's Yummies]] form around their host, forcing OOO to use finesse to extract them before [[FinishingMove finishing the Yummy off.]]
** In the later arcs of ''Series/KamenRiderDrive'', the Roidmudes develop the means to [[FusionDance fuse]] with a WillingChanneler. Shinnosuke's tech support tunes his weapons to destroy the Roidmude without hurting the human.
** In ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'', the Bugsters start off as an infection inside a human being, rapidly [[MakeMyMonsterGrow growing into a massive monster]] with the patient inside. The Riders' SuperDeformed Level 1 forms are [[MultiformBalance designed specifically to separate a Bugster from the patient.]]

* In [[GoldenAxe Golden Axe III]], you choose one or two of four available characters, the rest will become level bosses wich you have to beat. They're said to have been cursed by [[BigBad Death Adder]], and once you beat them, they become normal again. They won't join you, though, since we're in a BeatEmUp, not a Role-Playing Game.

* A variation in ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII'' - The best and only permanent way to get rid of curses in the setting is to beat the crap out of the person who ''placed'' the curse. You also beat a powerful curse out of one of your own party members.

* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'', full stop. Anything affected by dark magic, up to and including Princess Zelda herself, can be fixed with a good butt-whupping.
** Subverted in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames Oracle of Ages]]'', where you can't attack Veran when she's possessing someone because doing so would [[GameplayAndStorySegregation supposedly]] only hurt her host. Defeating Veran when she's possessing Nayru [[spoiler:and later, Queen Ambi]] requires shooting [[AchillesHeel Mystery Seeds]] at her and to remove Veran's spirit from her body, and then switching places with Veran to attack her before she can repossess her host.

* In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'', you are attacked by [[spoiler:former partner Jill Valentine]], who is under the influence of a mind control device (which is attached to the chest, naturally). Administering a beating is [[AvertedTrope a bad idea]], since if you do too much damage to her, you'll accidentally kill her. Instead, you have to work with your partner to hold her still while one of you tries to pry off the device.

* ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' has Tret the Holy Tree, who's been driven to mad UnstoppableRage due to Psynergy Stones falling from the sky. Only when Isaac and his friends hand him his ass does he return to his senses.

* In ''PennyArcadeAdventures'', characters can get brainwashed and attack their own team. Either you wait until they're damaged, or hit them yourself--they take far less damage and are cured instantly.

*In ''Anime/DigimonFrontier,'' dealing a 'mon enough damage causes their data to be revealed in the form of a glowing ring of barcode-lines, which can be taken away, costing the loser power-ups, but also purifying victims of TheCorruption.[[note]]Your core is protected from this; even after ''fatal'' damage you revert to a digi-egg and can hatch again like in the original series. This series is LighterAndSofter than its predecessor, which introduced the idea of taking your opponent's data - in ''Tamers,'' AllDeathsFinal applied whether data was taken by the winner or not![[/note]] A lot of villains, all the way up to [[spoiler: the BigBad for the first half of the series, once he regenerates]], are much friendlier after a sound thrashing made them able to be purified.



* In ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' (and all following series), this was typically the way to free people who had been turned into monsters by the BigBad's evil spells (and thankfully so, otherwise the Rangers would have unwittingly killed Kat). When the transformation had been done by means other than a direct spell the Rangers had to seek alternate cures.

** And unfortunately TruthInTelevision today. Some preachers such as Michael Pearl still advise parents to beat the crap out of their kids on the excuse that insubordinate or bratty behavior is caused by demons.

** An unusual variant occurs in the Infinity College arc. Hotaru Tomoe is possessed by Mistress 9, who is so powerful that none of the senshi attacks so much as slow her down. What defeats her in the end is when ''Hotaru herself'' beats (or rather, burns) Mistress 9 out of her from within, causing the alien to explode and reveal Hotaru as the newly-awoken Sailor Saturn.

** In the first story arc, Sailor Moon isn't able to free Mamoru from Bery's [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashing]] with [[IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight gentler methods]], so she eventually realizes that the only way to stop him is to stab him with her sword. [[spoiler:Upon killing him and stabbing herself in grief, she awakens to find that both of them survived and Mamoru is now free of the mind control.]]
