* In the series 4 premiere of ''TheInspectorLynleyMysteries'', Barbara Havers is held hostage at gunpoint - on her first case back after taking a bullet to the stomach in the series 3 finale. She's terrified out of her skin, but largely keeps in control, until she is rescued - at which point she whales the tar out of the hostage-taker until Lynley manages to pull her off. She tries to hit him until it sinks in who's holding her - and then she bursts into tears and [[CryIntoChest cries herself out against Lynley's chest]].

* Subverted in ''Disney/AGoofyMovie''. Lester, a park mascot, attempts to do this when he comes across a very angry Max. All the hug ends up doing is making Max even angrier.

* Pictured above: ComicBook/BettyRoss can do this when the [[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk Hulk]] is especially irate.

* Pictured above: ComicBook/BettyRoss can do this when the [[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk Hulk]] is especially irate. Later subverted when Betty became the Red She-Hulk. Because Red She-Hulk does everything she can to make Bruce and Hulk miserable (including deliberately {{cuckold}}ing him at one point, when Hulk becomes so angry that he threatens to destroy the Earth, Amadeus Cho begs Betty to give him a CooldownHug, but she knows that she can't anymore. If anything, she'd only piss him off more.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/GhostsOfEvangelion'':
** Subverted. Shinji often hugs Asuka when he wants to reassure her. But when she's upset, she needs space instead of physical contact.
** Played straight when Shinji is worried about raising their daughter properly, and Asuka embraces him and tells him stop worrying. He feels a bit better.

* A rather creepy and fruitless example in TheTudors; Anne Boleyn is pregnant with Henry's child, and everyone (especially her,) is aware that this is her last chance to give him the son he's awaited for so long. Henry, with his typical lack of care and foresight, decides to start seducing her handmaiden, Jane Seymour, and Anne catches Jane sitting on Henry's lap. She has an immediate FreakOut and Henry frantically tries to talk her down and gives her one of these... with his hands wrapped around her swollen belly rather than around Anne herself, leaving no room for doubt that he's long stopped caring about her as anything more than the vessel for his son. [[ForegoneConclusion Obviously]] it doesn't work; later that day she suffers a miscarriage, (and while she's had them before, Henry's actions that day sure as hell didn't help the situation,) and Henry [[NeverMyFault blames her entirely]]. Anne furiously reminding him that he is responsible for the shock she received (and the guilt that he suppresses with anger and arrogant self-righteousness,) is implied to be one of several factors in his decision to have her executed.

* In ''TheElenium'', Kalten does this to Sephrenia, who has blown her stack (as Sephrenia is a victim of racism all her life, Kalten recognizes her own racism towards the Delphae). It starts with him performing "Elene Magic" on the door by kicking it in, then giving her a hug. She can beat on him all she likes, but Kalten's body is about as hard as his head.

* ''{{Dragonlance}}'' has an example of this in ''The Soulforge'', where Caramon does this to keep Raistlin from setting on fire/vaporizing/magic-ing the cultist woman who's denouncing him as a demon. Because this is still before Raistlin completely crossed the MoralEventHorizon, the cool-down hug works.

** And yes, we are talking about Undyne ''[[spoiler:sneaking inside Alphys' brain and taking control over it to publicly humiliate her beyond human belief by making her strip herself naked and fuck her own pets on live television while also awkwardly dancing and singing to the Mew Mew theme song for added embarrassment, just for the pure sadistic pleasure of it.]]''
