* In many of the 2D ''Franchise/LegendOfZelda'' games, low-level enemy {{Mook}}s could be defeated by simply hammering on the "attack" button and clinking away at their swords until you randomly knocked them into a position in which you could score an actual hit.

* ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'' has two tests of strength where the objective is to mash the ever-loving crap out of the A button. The first takes place in Lightfoot Village, and the second in a Krazoa palace some time after it. Hope you have fast fingers or a turbo controller for the Lightfoot test, as it is ''hard''.

* In ''3 Count Bout'' for the UsefulNotes/NeoGeo, winning grapples is a matter of mashing the A button; the AttractMode tutorial gives fair warning of this.

* ''VideoGame/EnterTheMatrix'' for PS2. Toggle BulletTime and mash to your heart's content. It usually ended up looking pretty cool though.

** While it's true that Maxi is a Button-Masher's dream in ''II'', by the third game (at least on the PS2 version), he frequently poses for seemingly no reason, allowing the opponent an easy opening to strike.

* One resurrected king of a magical land + highly-advanced wormhole technology = this trope when said king (Leoric) is given instructions on sabotaging said tech in ''FanFic/HeroesOfTheDeskRepercussions''. A scientist later [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] it by pointing out the resulting screwup looked like someone just pushed buttons to cause it.

** There is one exception though, for GuestFighter {{VideoGame/Bayonetta}}'s [[LimitBreak Final Smash]] in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros for 3DS and Wii U'' she can summon her [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Infernal Demon pet Gomorrah]] to attack enemies, and just like in her own games the player can button mash during Gomorrah's 'chewing' to wrack up extra damage.



** There is an example of the second type of button mashing however; for GuestFighter {{VideoGame/Bayonetta}}'s [[LimitBreak Final Smash]] in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros for 3DS and Wii U'' she can summon her [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Infernal Demon pet Gomorrah]] to attack enemies, and just like in her own games the player can button mash during Gomorrah's 'chewing' to wrack up extra damage.



* In the ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' series, "fires as fast as you pull the trigger" is a property that can occur in the game's randomly-generated guns, particularly if they're Jakobs. Naturally, this tends to be more useful in guns with large magazines than, say, a double-chambered shotgun whose ability to fire rounds quickly has much more to do with reload speed than rate of fire ''per se''.
