** 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]])

* In ''VideoGame/MortalKombat2'', the fight against BonusBoss Jade is unlocked by winning a certain fight using only Low Kicks. Weirdly, the same tactic - jumping low kicks ad infinitum - is one of the best ways to defeat the final boss.
** Speaking of Mortal Kombat, later games also subverted the usual FinishingMove by having other options available, which are usually meant to humiliate your enemy further. Like ''Friendship''.
** In MortalKombatX, Erron Black can throw Caltrops on the floor, which can actually down an opponent with low-enough health. He also has Tarkatan Stab in his [[StanceSystem Outlaw variation]], which lets the opponent bleed out over time, and also down them. That's right, he has ''two'' cherry-tapping moves, and you can use them at the same time (if using Outlaw variation) for ''even more'' damage.

* In the ''NarutoGekitouNinjaTaisen'' (''Clash of Ninja'') fighting games, there are the odd characters who can be used to defeat your opponent in extremely embarrassing ways. Among them is Tsunade - she is super strong and uses melee attacks, but she has one attack where she swings her arm up into her opponent's chin (only stunning them) and then instantly flicks them in the forehead with ''one finger'', sending them flying. This actually comes directly from the manga/anime; she used it in an early appearance to demonstrate to Naruto that being able to beat Gaara does '''''not''''' mean you can now throw down with one of the Sannin.

* In ''RumbleRoses'', there is a Humiliation Gauge, which, when full (the enemy's, not yours), makes the character blush and gasp "N-no!". Afterwards, you can use a H-Move, which is a very powerful submission... and as you can guess from the name, most are embarrassing ([[{{Fanservice}} and hot]]). Some would have you scratching your head trying to find the "H" in the move, but just blame it on the character being too naive or something. From the options, you can even set Humiliation Finish Only, so that the loser must be humiliated. Fun in multiplayer. In the story mode, one of the characters insists on having a H-Finish Only match after losing once, because she really wants to win. She does not.
* In ''BushidoBlade'' the rapier is a fiddly and unsatisfying weapon. It also looks puny and toy-like in the hands of the heavier characters. However, it's the one weapon with no backswing, meaning it's impossible to trap a rapier-wielder against a wall where using any other weapon would cause their swings to collide with the wall and stun them, and in the hands of a strong character it will punch through your defenses irritatingly often. And you just got slain by a giant guy holding an oversized toothpick.

* ''VideoGame/GodHand'' has the ''Poke of God''; a move that literally '''''pokes''''' a demon to death once they reach critical health. [[ItGetsBetter And it's complete with a]] LaughTrack.

* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', using your melee weapon as a mage, priest or warlock (or alternatively for the warlock, using the imp or voidwalker). Wands are almost universally better for these classes ''and'' are ranged weapons.

** Later entires in the series introduce [[LittleBitBeastly Makoto Nanaya]], who has a special that involves throwing an acorn at the opponent. For one damage. In a game where base HP is 10,000, and the squishiest still have 9,000. To add insult to injury, the move is only available to [[PurposefullyOverpowered Unlimited Makoto]], meaning the rest of her arsenal is supercharged.
