* 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.

* [[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.
