* Everytime Nami gets furious in ''Manga/OnePiece'', expect these to pop up on whoever annoyed her.

* Everytime Nami gets furious in ''Manga/OnePiece'', expect these to pop up on whoever annoyed her. A particularly notable example was in the aftermath of the Enies Lobby arc, when Luffy flippantly admits to spending all their savings on an extravagant party. Luffy gains one ''larger than his head'', with some other bumps coating his face.

Unfortunately, a TruthInTelevision, as a hard hit to the head can result in a swelled bump, which, if unlucky, won't go away for a long time. Animated mediums tend to [[RuleOfFunny exaggerate this]] though.

Unfortunately, While exaggerated, this trope is very much a TruthInTelevision, as a hard hit TruthInTelevision; an even minor bump to the head can will usually result in a swelled bump, which, if unlucky, won't swelling that takes a while to go away for a long time.away.

* MickeyMouse gets one in "The Grocery Boy" after an iron falls on his head. It shrinks down when Minnie kisses it.
* Carl from AquaTeenHungerForce gets a somewhat more realistic yet still hilarious case of this after one of Frylocks inventions fly's out of the house and bounces off the back of his head at top speed in the beginning of the episode. When he returns near the end, Carl now has a heavily swollen, purple/blue/green lump on the back of his head that he claims "needs to be drained 3 times a day, so his brain can think good."

* In the first episode of the resurrected ''[[MahouSenseiNegima Negima]]!'', a mishap leaves Negi with a Cranial Eruption, among other marks.

* In the first episode of the resurrected ''[[MahouSenseiNegima Negima]]!'', ''Anime/{{Negima}}'', a mishap leaves Negi with a Cranial Eruption, among other marks.



* These happen from time to time in MaiOtome, such as in one piece of official art in which Haruka, sparring with Shizuru during her time as a Coral, fails to block Shizuru's staff and gets hit in the head (resulting in the staff bending on impact). In MaiOtomeSifr, Lena gives one to Elliot while repelling her advances.
* ''[[Manga/KOn K-On!]]'''s Ritsu is usually the one to receive them from Mio, sometimes stacked. In the anime, the stacked version (one hit for making noise while studying is being attempted, and one for poking the sole of Yui's tingling foot) is seen shrinking back on its own.

* With the abundance of {{Megaton Punch}}es, {{Armor Piercing Slap}}s and characters otherwise being reduced to ATwinkleInTheSky, it should be no surprise that this gets more than the occasional glance in ''RanmaOneHalf''.

* Appears frequently in Italian DisneyComics (known as "bernoccolo"). Creator/CarlBarks's story "The Mad Chemist" has DonaldDuck hit upon a one-in-a-million chance of one turning him into a genius. Too bad they fade away in time.

* Happens to Kafuka Fuura in ''SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' in the few occasions she gets hit in the head.
* These happen occasionally in ''GalaxyFrauleinYuna'''s more light-hearted episodes. One particularly amusing case in the first OAV episode had the bump "healed" by Yuri Cube snagging it off Yuna's forehead with her chopsticks -- and immediately eating it, saying it looked tasty.
