** And again in the episode where Cleveland and Loretta split up, but with Cleveland and Quagmire (in a direct nod to the ''RockyIII'' ending)

* ''Anime/DigimonSavers'' episode 34 [[http://youtu.be/CrHdXHdVJ8w?t=6m1s has one between Thoma and Masaru.]] Note that [[SubvertedTrope Thoma actually does it properly]] {by avoiding Masaru's original attack), which makes sense [[FridgeBrilliance since he's trained boxer]]. Unfortunately, Masaru just ignores the large fist in his face and hits Thoma anyway.

* ''Anime/DigimonSavers'' Between Masaru and Kouki in episode 28.

* Bruce Irvin from ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' can do a cross counter(called the Nightmare Punch) when the player times it with an opponent's punch. Also subverted in Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1iBaLXmR09Q arcade intro]] - Both Jin and Kazuya evade each others' fists. Once again subverted in Tekken 7's arcade intro - Kazuya evades Heihachi's fist, but Kazuya connects with Heihachi.

Once again subverted in Tekken 7's ''Tekken 7''[==]'s arcade intro - Kazuya evades Heihachi's fist, but Kazuya connects with Heihachi.Heihachi and sends him flying into a rock. The current Bandai Namco logo used for the series shows Kazuya and Jin closing in on each other for such a moment but it cuts away right before they connect. Finishing a match with a tag move with Jin and Kazuya in ''Tag 2'' will have them [[http://fighting-games.wikia.com/wiki/File:Tekken-tag-tournament-2-jin-kazuya-screenshot.jpg replicate the scene]] in-game (including cutting away right before they connect).

* The climax of ''ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman'' had {{Superman}} and [[ImplacableMan Doomsday]]'s long, brutal fight end with both of them hitting each other as hard as they can simultaneously. This causes [[KungFuSonicBoom shockwaves for blocks]] and results in both of their deaths.

* ''FinalFantasyTacticsA2'' has as a Master Monk ability named this: however, instead of either being a support or reaction ability that activates when the enemy character has a Counter as their reaction ability and reproducing the normally expected results, it's actually just an action ability that does more damage than normal (often double) and bypasses an enemy's counter, if the enemy has a Counter skill.

This happens when one fist fighters [[CounterAttack counters a hook punch]] by throwing another punch along an opponent's arm, aimed to the face. The result is the two fighters simultaneously punching each other's faces, with one or [[DoubleKnockout both of them]] collapsing after a suitably DramaticPause. Typically done to show both fighters as [[WorthyOpponent equals]] in skill or power.

This happens when one two fist fighters [[CounterAttack counters counter a hook punch]] by throwing another punch along an opponent's arm, aimed to the face. The result is the two fighters simultaneously punching each other in the face. This is a sometimes comedic way of showing both fighters to be [[WorthyOpponent equals]] in skill and power and sometimes to show that they both have [[NotSoDifferent more in common]] than either of them would like to admit.

After a DramaticPause, to let sink in what just happened, it will typically end with one fighter collapsing to the
other's faces, with one greater HeroicSpirit, or [[DoubleKnockout both of them]] collapsing after a suitably DramaticPause. Typically done to show both fighters as [[WorthyOpponent equals]] resulting in skill or power.
a DoubleKnockout.
