* In ''ThereWillBeBrawl'' Ganondorf does this to [[spoiler: Link, by ramming his arm ''through'' Zelda as she went to protect him, and ''explodes Link's head'' while Link was at full health.]] Quite a HeelFaceDoorSlam.

* In ''Anime/TigerMaskW'', Red Death Mask uses the Iron Claw (see the Pro Wrestling folder for info) as a finishing move; his large, powerful hands enable him to easily draw sickening amounts of blood with the hold. Failing that, he has the Red Death Drop, a leaping windmill-motion Iron Claw Slam -- he manages to ''kill'' a minor character with a Red Death Drop off a cliff.

** Captain Falcon, being a MovessetClone, does much the same, though his involves lightning instead of fire.

* [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Ganondorf's]] side-B special move in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosBrawl'' utilizes this. In addition to the "energy attack" part of this trope, he also literally picks his opponent off the ground by the face before exploding their face with dark fire (if the two of them are on the ground), or grabs their face and them ''slams them back down into the ground'' (if done in the air) Ouch.

Good thing everyone else present either wears PoweredArmour or happens to be a psionic demi-goddess quite capable of ignoring little things like that.

** In the recent ''Amazing Spider-Man'' story arc Grim Hunt, Peter does something similar to one of the villain that was dogging him through most of the arc. Fittingly, it was to avenge Kaine, who was dead. Again. He got better.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''[[Anime/{{K}} K: Memory of Red]]'', Mikoto Suoh, the Red King, does this to Eric Surt, a {{Yakuza}} assassin who's tried to kill him and his followers several times. But it's subverted in that, instead of killing Eric (as he and everyone around expected), Mikoto [[SuperEmpowering makes Eric his Clansman]], giving him powers and rescuing him from the yakuza group that's held him captive and forced him to kill for them for almost his whole life. Eric appears in the anime as a member of Mikoto's Clan, HOMRA.
