*** It's definitely a cultural thing. Games like Halo, Unreal Tournament, Counter-Strike, Call of Duty, and Battlefield have a lot of players who teabag dead opponents. In games like America's Army, it virtually never happens, and doing it is likely to get you kicked off the server. A sociological paper could be written on teabagging in FPS games...

* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'''s infamous "teabagging" shows up a lot in multiplayer play. People aren't content to just kill you, they have to violate your corpse.
** Which also applies to almost any FPS game out there. Even some people in Melee and Brawl may teabag your body in stamina mode. Yahtzee has also taken a stab at people who seemingly have to teabag every time they score a kill.

corpse. Somethow, meleeing a corpse is intended to be more offensive than the teabag.
** Which also applies ''VideoGame/{{Halo 4}}'' adds a new dimension to "teabagging", where the hologram power-up introduced in ''VideoGame/HaloReach'' will now teabag any corpse it encounters, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-2ufLRpYXDI#t=53s including one's own...]]

* Happens a lot in ''{{Franchise/Halo}}'', on both the enemy's side and your own NPC allies. The phrase that comes to mind is when a Marine shoots the corpse of an Elite, going ''[[InformalEulogy "Get up so I can kill you again!"]]'' (It generally seems to be more "Making sure it's dead and not just wounded". The Covenant are another story, though. They know you're dead, and shooting at your corpse and arguing about who gets to keep the helmet is the way they rub it in.)
** Same for the spiritual precursor ''{{VideoGame/Marathon}}''.

* The ''{{Tekken}}'' games still allow this. Later versions would let you use ground grapples on a downed, KOd opponent. Would this count as anti-teabagging, since instead of the winner tapping the loser's head with his groin, the winner smashes his head into the loser's groin?

* Several characters in ''FistOfTheNorthStar'' interact with their defeated opponents in their victory poses. Souther, most notably, will walk up, plant his foot on them and then don his Emperor gear as if calling his army to battle.

* Several characters in ''InjusticeGodsAmongUs'' do this for their victory pose. The Joker lights his opponent on fire, Ares skewers them with a flurry of swords, Black Adam electrocutes them, Harley Quinn kicks them off screen, Solomon Grundy chucks them away, and Scorpion impales them and throws them down a portal to Hell.

* In the first ''{{Tomba}}'', dying in the jungle area before obtaining that area's Pig Bag will result in a ''swarm'' of insane tribals pop out of the bushes and start multilating Tomba's corpse. Judging from the sounds they make, we're probably lucky that the thick ground foliage serves as a sort of censor bar...

** Stryker's standard winpose in the game is him walking away from his opponent and throwing a grenade at them. All we see of the aftermath of the offscreen explosion is blood splatters flying on Stryker's face, implying that... well... he pulled off a Fatality without pulling off a Fatality.



** One of [[AxeCrazy Bryan Fury's]] win poses is to leap atop the finished opponent and punch them silly while laughing like a maniac. [[BigBad Heihachi]], meanwhile, will grab the opponent by the hair, badmouth them, then slam their face to the ground in disgust.

* The ''[[SoulSeries Soulcalibur]]'' games allow you to do this. In ''SC IV'''s Arcade Mode, you even get a small bonus for each hit you land after the KO.
