The name comes from the act of forcing someone to lie down in the street and bite the curb, then stomping on the back of his or her head (this could be very humiliating him or her, especially [[Film/AmericanHistoryX if he or she were to die]]. Even if he or she were to survive, he or she may be missing some teeth and have a severely broken jaw).

Compare PendulumWar, which is where sides take turns to perform this trope upon each other. In ProfessionalWrestling this frequently overlaps with SquashMatch. In video games, see FlawlessVictory. {{Breather Boss}}es and {{Anticlimax Boss}}es are the types most likely to be on the receiving end of a Curb-Stomp Battle. If this is done to the ''heroes'', on the other hand, it becomes a HopelessBossFight, often from a HeroKiller. Compare NoSell. Contrast StoryBreakerTeamUp. If the curbstompee manages to get a few good hits in to show that they're not ''totally'' helpless, it's a CurbStompCushion. A NoHoldsBarredBeatdown is similar but much more realistic, brutal, and violent.

A fight that's extremely one-sided; where one side just absolutely trashes the other with little-to-no effort. Commonly used as a way of establishing a character as being very strong, especially if the person on the receiving end of the beating is [[TheWorfEffect known for being a]] {{badass}}.

The name comes from the act of forcing someone to lie down in the street and bite the curb, then stomping on the back of their head. About as humiliating of an ass-kicking as you could imagine, especially since [[Film/AmericanHistoryX it kills you]]. If you survive, you'll still be missing most of your teeth and have a severely broken jaw.
