* In Ice Hockey, some fighters adopt a simple tactic known as "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fighting_in_ice_hockey#Tactics going for it]]" where the player puts their head down (to avoid face blows) and in the words of TheOtherWiki, "just throws as many punches as he can, as fast as he can".

** ''Continuum Shift II'' onwards rename it Stylish control (as opposed to Technical, the standard), though keep it much the same. ''Central Fiction'' turns it into a teaching tool by making specials and supers launched with one-button inputs weaker, but using the Technical input resulted in the full-strength version.

* Despite what some critics have said, this only works in ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' on Very Easy ... and up to a point. However, both games in the series do offer a sort of button mashing mini-game, which gets used for Torture Attacks and [[SummonBiggerFish summons of Infernal Demons]] to finish off enemies to earn extra Halo currency, as well as the occasional Wicked Weave PummelDuel with [[TheRival Jeanne]]. In ''VideoGame/Bayonetta2'', button mashing replaces the PressXToNotDie mechanic from the first game.

* Multiple characters throughout the ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' have skills that either add hits to combos while button mashing or reduce casting time to spells when doing so.

* The ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' games, especially the sequel, are frequently accused of being button mashy, because most enemies can be defeated by simply using physical attacks repeatedly (tapping the X button), rendering magic and special attacks largely unnecessary.

However, this is only true in the easier modes of the games, while the harder modes make magic and special attacks a must if you want to win.

Television shows that employ PacManFever will often show the characters playing the video game doing nothing ''but'' ButtonMashing, regardless of what KIND of video game is being played; more often than not, the screen will show a character walking slowly or merely jumping, while the person "playing" will be frantically mashing buttons.

SmashingSurvival is when you need to do this to break free of HarmlessFreezing, shake off a PersonalSpaceInvader or free yourself from some other trap. If ButtonMashing proves more advantageous than reasonably forseeable, it can fall under NotTheIntendedUse.

* ''VideoGame/ArcanaHeart'' brings us Akane, and one of her super moves which requires massive amounts of ButtonMashing in order to get the best result. How massive? Successfully performing this move once in ''Arcana Heart 3'' is enough to earn an achievement, and it is widely considered to be the [[LastLousyPoint most difficult]] (if not the most time consuming) achievement in the game. Most turbo controllers are not fast enough to perform this attack correctly.

* In ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'', how difficult the Test Of Strength is is inversely proportional to how good you are at ButtonMashing, to the point where if Button Mashing's not your thing, it can easily become ThatOneLevel.

* A deliberate use of ButtonMashing was used for ''VideoGame/TrackAndField'', where the primary may of winning is to hit the buttons as fast as possible. (At least some console versions came with their own button-only controllers.) Some gamers have created unconventional methods to press the buttons - stuff like putting a sheet of hard plastic and moving a pen over the buttons, or hitting the buttons with a vibrating ruler - while others have created mechanical button pressing devices to help their progress through the game.
