* In ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'', Mei can do this. She [[FreezeRay freezes]] you in place, then she can finish you with a punch, or an icicle from her gun. Or her teammates finish you while she's regenerating in her own [[HarmlessFreezing ice cube]].

** In ''VideoGame/{{Battlefield}} 2142'', there are awards for getting a certain number of pistol or knife kills. The game also encourages knife kills with the inclusion of collectible dog tags. But the real Cherry Tapping weapon is probably the lowly smoke grenade. It provides a pitiful amount of smoke when used properly, but if thrown at a player, it can knock off that final hit point. It gets its own kill message, but sadly, perpetual stats for smokes aren't kept. Other possibilities include standard grenades (which also inflict striking damage), assault rifle rockets used inside their minimum range (striking instead of exploding), parachute stomping, roadkill by air vehicles, and the commander's supply drop.

** For extra special hilarity, the ''VideoGame/ProjectReality'' mod for ''Battlefield 2'' has the Civilian Collaborator in its Insurgency style gameplay. Civis carry no weapons and meager equipment, including a rock for irritating soldiers. Their saving grace is that (unless disqualified by the RulesOfEngagement) they must be arrested (Melee'd) to deal with them (shooting them = + 60s respawn). So civis can ping rocks off armor with impunity (useless, but incredibly annoying for the armor crew). Alternatively, you can find that annoying sniper and crack him in the head with a couple rocks (or six to the torso), which is easily the most embarrassing way to die in the mod, especially since the civi then picks up your rifle and turns it the other direction. In previous mod versions, it was also possible to run over civis to arrest them, which led to sappers placing a pile of [=IEDs=] under a civi's feet and waiting for heavy armor to try to run them over.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'' has two examples - first, Khal Drogo kills a challenger after deliberately dropping his own weapons, by dodging all of the challenger's attacks, then stealing his weapon and using it to kill him. Second, Syrio Forel knocks out several heavily armed and armoured [[spoiler:Lannister]] soldiers with a wooden training sword.

** Later Arya avenges his death by killing Meryn Trant with a very small dagger. One that's easy to conceal and also won't kill him until she wants him to.

* During the Battle off Samar in WorldWarII, the escort carrier USS ''White Plains'' (essentially a freighter hull with a flight deck on top, armed with a single 5-inch dual-purpose gun) found herself in a gunnery duel with the Japanese heavy cruiser ''Chokai'', armed with ten 7.9-inch guns. However, the ''White Plains'' managed to hit the ''Chokai's'' exposed torpedo launcher with one shell, setting off eight 1000-pound warheads which disabled the ''Chokai's'' engines. After another hit from a 500-pound bomb, the ''Chokai'' was so badly damaged she had to be scuttled.

* In the second ''KingdomHearts'' game, it is a perfectly feasible option to beat down the parade of final bosses with the Sweet Memories keyblade. It has no attack, defense, or magic bonuses, but it has a finisher, and that's all you need. Just for added humiliation, the sound and visual effects makes it seem like you're beating down an entity of nothingness using a stick with an adorable honeycomb inside. It's death by cute at its finest.

** Also in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'': during the boss battle against Luxord, he can turn you into a die or a playing card. As demonstrated [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ohELKTnRbI here]], it's entirely possible to defeat him by ''tackling him to death as a die''.
** [[SelfImposedChallenge It's a pretty entertaining challenge to go through as much of game]] in ''[[KingdomHearts KH2]]'' with only the abilities you had equipped to Roxas. Difficult but it feels good beating the final boss only using your starting combos.
* In ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts3D'', Sora's Slide Roll ability is meant to be used defensively, but for some awkward reason, causes a fixed one HP of damage to anything you roll into. As bosses can't be defeated by your party members and instead remain at one HP, using an UnnecessaryCombatRoll to finish them off is easily possible.

** Xianghua's facefault floor wail. She literally throws a tantrum, which can do a minor amount of damage provided you're right on top of the your opponent...

* {{Vindictus}}, the sequel/prequel to Mabinogi, is much more centered around effective strategy against the dungeon bosses, meaning that a skilled player can kill them while wearing only their underwear and using the starting weapon. There's even bonus points in some dungeons for completing it without armor.
* On ''[[GaiaOnline zOMG!]]'', it was at one point possible, and a huge source of bragging rights, to have no attacking rings, but just layer on buffs and heal until major bosses KO'd themselves with reflected damage.

* ''VideoGame/StarControl'' has several ships that work as [[LethalJokeWeapon Cherry Tappers]], but probably the strongest examples are both the Shofixti Scout's and the Pkunk Fury's main weapons. Each only do 1 damage, but the Scout has an absolutely abysmal fuel amount (only having 4 units, compared to the 50 the player starts with) and the Pkunk Fury only deals 1/3 of a mark. The Suppox literally Cherry Tap since they fire seeds as their main weapon (with each doing [[CaptainObvious 1 damage]])
