[[folder:Professional Wrestling]] * 1950s British TV star Jackie Pallo would do this, only instead of grabbing their neck he would chicken wing their arms and [[MurderousThighs squeeze their midsection]]. It became known as the "Paro special". * As he was smaller than most other heavyweights, Wrestling/MinoruSuzuki found much of his success in both pro wrestling and mixed martial arts choking out his opponents this way.[[/folder]]

[[folder:ComicBooks]] * In ''TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'', Quatermain attempts this against Mr Hyde. It doesn't work, so he feeds him a mouthful of laudanum. * 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.]]

** ''Film/TotalRecall1990'' has him as the big guy and Creator/SharonStone as the little... er, girl, trying to choke him. * A subversion occurs in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' when Thor jumps on Hulk's back and begins choking him with his hammer. The subversion comes from the fact that, despite the size difference, the two are very close in strength.

* Happens in ''Literature/ThePrincessBride'', with The Man in Black doing this to Fezzik. It works, too; according to Fezzik, it's because he's got used to fighting crowds (battling gangs for local charities--that kind of thing) and is out of practice with one-on-one duels.

[[folder:Real Life]] * Properly applied, this move is usually called a "rear naked choke" and is common in UsefulNotes/MixedMartialArts. Of course, it's much easier to pull off as the bigger guy against the smaller one without the whole rodeo business. [[/folder]]

* Attempted by WesternAnimation/BugsBunny in the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short "WesternAnimation/BunnyHugged". The wrestler he tries it on is unfazed.

* Rookie Investigator Takeomi Kuroiwa does this in ''Manga/TokyoGhoul[=:Re=]'', after the enormous Ghoul he's fighting breaks his Quinque in half. He jumps on the Ghoul's back and hangs on for dear life.....then subverts the trope by [[NeckSnap breaking the Ghoul's neck]] with his [[SuperStrength bare hands]]. Rumors about this feat quickly spread, and morph into epic tales of him tearing heads off with his bare hands. The ever-humble Takeomi is mortified.
