* ComicBook/SpiderMan is famous for going up larger opponents so it's no surprise that he has pulled this move. The most famous example being his first fight against TheJuggernaut. [[spoiler: He did it as a distraction to trick Juggy into sinking in wet cement.]]

* In the ''Franchise/BattleTechExpandedUniverse'' "Blood of Kerensky" trilogy novel ''Lost Destiny'', captured Inner Sphere Mechwarrior Phelan Kell is eligible to battle for a Clan Bloodname, their highest honor. His first combat trial requires him to fight an Elemental barehanded. Phelan is by all accounts a normal young man of respectable fitness. An Elemental is a nine-foot-tall brick shithouse of a SuperSoldier genetically engineered to wear PoweredArmor. Phelan's answer is to request the combat trial be held in zero-gravity, giving him ample opportunity to climb onto the Elemental and hold on for dear life; without some form of leverage, the Elemental's impressive musculature was ultimately not an advantage. Phelan eventually [[ChokeHolds blood chokes]] his opponent to win the trial.

Since the big guy will do everything in his power to get the little guy off of him, whether by bucking like a bronco, trying to sieze and throw the little guy over his head, or by slamming his back against a wall, the little one needs to somehow hang on and endure until oxygen deprivation causes the big guy to pass out, or at least until the distraction has served its purpose. It's not a move associated with elegance or technical skill, and depending on what's at stake, this sort of struggle can be made to look either dramatic or comical.

A smaller, weaker person attempts to disable a big guy by jumping on their back and wrapping their arms around their neck; it looks sort of like a rear naked choke crossed with an uncooperative piggyback ride. It is usually performed in the midst of a fight while the big guy is occupied with someone else and doesn't notice the little guy creeping up behind him. Often the little guy is trying to protect an ally in distress by distracting the big guy before he can deliver the finishing blow.

* So yeah, Chiaotzu might be the [[ShapedLikeItself midgiest midget in midgetville]], and his arms don't quite, like, reach around a person's neck, he's stuck to the back of [[TheDragon Nappa]] in ''Anime/DragonBallZ''.

He eventually tries to end it by blowing himself up and taking Nappa with him, but Nappa is more powerful than anything the Z Fighters have faced, and {{No Sell}}s the attack.
