* [[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.

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

* In ''Videogame/StarCraftII:Heart of the Swarm'' [[spoiler:Kerrigan]] uses one to turn [[spoiler:Mensk's]] face into a psionic bomb, which inevitably explodes, killing him.

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.

* The T-101 does this to a female guard in ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'', though since he had been instructed not to kill, it is not as {{Squick}} as it could have been.

* In the GrandFinale of ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', Superman wins the climactic fight against Darkseid using this move defensively: while Darkseid is charging his [[EyeBeams Omega Effect]], Superman holds his hands to Darkseid's eyes, causing a massive explosion which blackens his eyes and opens up massive, red-glowing wounds on his face. (As his next appearance in TheDCAU would show, [[ScarsAreForever they scarred permanently]].) And Darkseid is ''a god''. Pretty good move, that.
