** Happen in movie 4 (Dead End Adventure) in the climax when Luffy and Gasparde which each other with long ranged attacks (Luffy, his stretching power and Gasparde his syrup power hardened into a spike). Normally Gasparde would win as he clips Luffy's side but, thanks to Luffy being covered in flour at the time, he's able to bypass Gasparde's logia ability and finally connect a hit since the flour prevents Luffy's punch from sinking into Gasparde's body.



** A variants in the ''Whole Cake Island arc'' as Luffy and Katakuri go all out in their attacks. Luffy, using his Gear 4th mode: Snakeman, ricochets his punches around the room before aiming it directly at Katakuri. While Katakuri himself fires a fist shaped mochi at Luffy in the form of a RocketPunch. But attacks hit the other square in the face.

Their fight likewise ends in a long ranged manner of this with Luffy's rubber power and Katakuri's mochi strectiness hitting the other in their midsection. They both pass out afterwards [[spoiler: Though ultimately Luffy wins when Katakuri falls back into unconsciousness after briefly getting on his feet.]]

** There's also a variation where a heroic and villainous Rider will perform their [[FinishingMove Rider]] [[DivingKick Kicks]] at the same time and connect foot-to-foot, getting into a sort of physical BeamStruggle. Sometimes the backlash will launch them both backwards (as with [[Series/KamenRiderWizard Wizard]] versus [[spoiler:Wiseman[=/=]White Wizard]]), while other times there'll be a decisive winner (as with [[Series/KamenRiderExAid Ex-Aid]] versus [[spoiler:Chronus]]).

** The rear-hand-hook-over-jab version is very popular in MixedMartialArts (Mauricio 'Shogun' Rua especially throws it with great success). The reason is poor striking technique among a lot of fighters (who mostly start as wrestlers): not tucking the chin behind the shoulder of punching hand and general focus in MMA on single punches rather than combinations (due to takedown risk HitAndRunTactics work better), which means that a large number of jabs is usually thrown without any followup strikes (sometimes to set up a takedown).

* A variation with fencing sabers was done at the end of Char and Amuro's SwordFight in the finale of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam.'' They rushed each other, SingleStrokeBattle-style, each delivering a thrust through the other's defenses. Amuro got stabbed in the shoulder, Char got stabbed in the ([[MaskPower armored]]) forehead. This pretty much ended the fight (seeing as they each broke their swords in the process)...until TheMovie, anyway.
