* In an episode of ''TheSarahConnorChronicles'', John does this to Cromartie, just to blow off some steam, apparently, since one bullet from a handgun won't do much to a Terminator.

If it's done to ensure a swift and painless death, see MercyKill. May be used as (part of) a FinishingMove. Contrast FinishHim. Part of the CoupDeGraceCutscene, obviously. Contrast ThwartedCoupDeGrace.

* Oftentimes played straight with a wrestler's FinishingMove performed [[RuleOfThree at least three times]] in a big match.
* [[Wrestling/PrinceDevitt Finn Bálor]] has a FinishingStomp from the top rope that's [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the same name as this trope]].

* The finale of ''VideoGame/TheWalkingDead'' has Lee infected and on the brink of death. It's up to you as a player if Clementine shoots him or leaves him to turn.

Added DiffLines:

* Critically-wounded enemies in ''VideoGame/CharlieMurder'' can be finished off by a [[YourHeadAsplode head-asploding]] curb-stomp. Some bosses and mini-bosses ''need'' to be killed this way, or else they will get right back up with some health restored.

* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersTheMovie'': 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 CoupDeGrace 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, sneers a magnificent 'Such heroic nonsense' at him and blows him away.

* Somewhat present in the Batman: Arkham series, as the player can finish off enemies that are knocked down but not out. While most characters simply either hit the thug's head with a blunt object (or with the floor, or their fists, or their own head...) rendering them unconscious, the playable Red Hood in Batman: Arkham Knight simply flat out shoots them on their heads.
