Added DiffLines:

* A few heroes in ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' has abilities that can disable the enemy thus giving a chance to perform this. The most memetic example is perhaps [[BadassAdorable Mei,]] whose standard combat tactic is to freeze an enemy with her FreezeRay, and aim an icicle for a BoomHeadshot while they're immobile.

Added DiffLines:

** The AI generally prefers to go straight for the head when it gets this opportunity, reducing the head to [[ChunkySalsaRule chunky salsa]] or sticking a blade into the skull depending on their weapon. This can [[ArtificialStupidity fail]] if the victim is wearing an [[{{Unobtanium}} adamantine]] helmet.

* When clearing the White House lawn and foyer, the DangerouslyGenreSavvy terrorists in ''Film/OlympusHasFallen'' shoot each and every downed opponent in the head whether they seem alive or not. When Banning turns the tables on them, he has no problem with ventilating their skulls in kind.

* Film/JamesBond generally [[InstantDeathBullet didn't need]] to execute a coup de grace on his targets. An exception is Dr. Dent in ''Film/DrNo'', who after being shot down receives an extra bullet in the back, for safety. (An act that [[DarkerAndEdgier does not occur in any of Ian Fleming's novels]].) Reportedly the original edit of the film had Bond shoot the man ''six times'' but this was considered excessive.

Reportedly the original edit of the film had Bond shoot the man ''six times'' but this was considered excessive. Reportedly, this scene was added primarily to illustrate the "licenced to kill" aspect of the character given most other killings by Bond in the film were of the self-defence or "heat if battle" variety and not cold-blooded. The scene was controversial with Bond fans to the extent that nothing similar would be attempted again until ''Casino Royale'' in 2006.

* ''VideoGame/EternalSonata'': This is one of the first attacks Fréderic learns, though it's fairly weak compared to some of his other specials. Feels good to finish an enemy with it though.

to:

* ''VideoGame/EternalSonata'': This is one Actually a subversion. One of the first special attacks Fréderic learns, though it's fairly learns is called "Coup de Grace", yet it can be used any time, is weak compared to some of his other specials. Feels later specials, and has no special effects for finishing off an enemy. It feels good to finish an enemy with it though.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformersTheMovie'': The Decepticons hijack an Autobot shuttle bound for Earth and lay waste to its crew. Ironhide is the one unfortunate enough to be on the receiving end of a ''coup de grace'' from Megatron (as if being KilledOffForReal so soon wasn't bad enough). Additionally it [[TheWorfEffect cements Megatron's badass credentials]] when he looks at Ironhide, who is feebly grasping at his leg, sneers a magnificent "Such heroic nonsense!" at him and blows him away.
