* Parodied in an episode of ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir''; Will goes to a karate instructor for lessons but finds nothing in the dojo but a board on two cinderblocks. He stomps the board and makes martial arts noises, but a moment later the sensei (played by [[TheKarateKid Pat Morita]]) comes in, looks down, and asks "What happened to my coffee table?"

* Local chem-addled burnout Fred Allen of VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}} attempted this while high on Buffout. As his terminal details, he managed to shatter ten at once...then he tried breaking a ''steel'' board. The last bit of the Buffout trial is typed with his left hand.

* The BonusStage in the first ''MortalKombat'' was based around breaking rocks in this manner. The "[[MiniGame Test your Might]]" tests were reintroduced in ''Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance'', but dropped thereafter until ''MortalKombat9''. For the record, it started with wood, then went to stone, steel, ruby and finally diamond.

* Akane in ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', usually to relieve stress. Even the opening narration [[EstablishingCharacterMoment shows her doing this]] OnceAnEpisode.
** Ryouga learned a technique later in the series that allowed him to break boulders with a FingerPokeOfDoom.
*** Actually, any kind of solid ''non-living'' matter he could punch his finger through (for starters, he could WRITE on stone by punching holes with his finger prior to mastering this technique), so this is useless used ''directly'' against living things (this doesn't make him shy to explode boulders and open craters ''near'' enemies, though)

Akane in ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', does it sometimes, usually to relieve stress. Even the opening narration [[EstablishingCharacterMoment shows her doing this]] OnceAnEpisode.
** Ryouga learned a technique later in the series that allowed him to push or break any non-living matter, so while sometimes he would break apart boulders with a FingerPokeOfDoom.
*** Actually, any kind of solid ''non-living'' matter he could punch his finger through (for starters, he could WRITE on stone by punching holes with his finger prior to mastering this technique), so this is useless used ''directly'' against living
ease, he'd also write things (this doesn't make him shy to explode boulders and open craters ''near'' enemies, though)in stone.

* Not that uncommon in certain martial arts, in fact it's a pretty standard part of training and competition in Tae Kwon Do. It's also not nearly as difficult as people think it is, though you can still break your hand or foot if you use bad technique, even with the wooden planks they start beginners with. It's also worth pointing out that one of the main goals behind this is that it builds confidence and trains students to always follow through with their strikes (failure to do so is what gets you hurt), not so much to show off how badass you are.

* With the release of ''WorldOfWarcraft'''s Asian-themed ''Mists of Pandaria'' expansion and its monk class, this inevitably pops up a few times, including vanity items the players can buy and then break whenever and wherever they feel like. The most impressive example is probably the quest chain of [[http://www.wowhead.com/npc=56714 Master Bruised Paw]], who trains the player in pandaren kung fu, including the use of three successively-tougher BrickBreak challenges (bamboo, then wood, and finally stone) and two {{Training Montage}}s.
