* Guts from ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' does this to a scummy knight of the Holy Chain during the "Retribution" arc, actually lifting him off the ground by his face despite his heavy suit of armor. After interrogating him, he then '''throws the knight''' at a horse-riding enemy, still gripping him by the face.
* [[ActionGirl Kallen's]] Guren [=Mk-II=] and its dervatives from ''Anime/CodeGeass'' come equipped with a right-handed Radiant Wave Surger which she uses to blow up any Knightmare Frame in contact. There's a reason why people call her the [[Memes/CodeGeass daughter of Domon]].

* There's a clawhold variant of the STO; it's mostly known as a signature of Kensuke Sasaki and as Kenzo Suzuki's finisher.

* Bison Smith was known for his Iron Claw Slam, which is similar to a chokeslam.



* Since his late 2011 return, Wrestling/{{Kane}} has added this to his arsenal, clamping his hand over his foe's nose and mouth to suffocate them into unconsciousness. This even works on Wrestling/JohnCena.

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

Added DiffLines:

*** An even earlier example from Sagat comes from his [[http://41.media.tumblr.com/4643726c117413e60b7216df2b665b75/tumblr_n7fbwikftN1ty71ejo1_500.jpg promo art in Street Fighter II]] where it would later be depicted as him killing Gou Hibiki, Dan's father.

* From ''VideoGame/BloodyRoar'' (At least in the Primal Fury installment), one of Gado's Beast Drives is exactly this. He grabs his opponent by the face and lifts them into the air before letting off a one-handed [[KamehameHadoken Kamehame Hadoken]] and slamming them head-first into the ground.

* [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Yoshimitsu]] in all of his ''{{Tekken}}'' appearances, and his [[LegacyCharacter predecessor]] in his ''VideoGame/SoulCalibur'' appearances too... basically, a life-drain attack that consists of grabbing the opponent by the face and sucking out their life-horse. [[InvertedTrope An alternate version, however, allows you to ''heal'' them by channelling your own life-horse into them]]... nice way to show off.
** Though, in some games, if the oppononent blocks it the effects are istantly reversed. Yes, this means that if the opponent reverses the healing version, he heals ''you''.
** In some of the Soul series games, Asteroth was able to grab a prone opponent by the face, squeeze their head, then stand them upright. The attack was pretty weak, but it prevented your opponent from getting a wake-up attack.

* In the ''StreetFighter'' series, one of T. Hawk's specials is grabbing his opponent by the face, leaping into the air while windmilling them around (still by the face) and slamming them to the ground.
** Sagat gets a simpler one starting from his first ''Zero'' appearance - no leaping or windmills, just grab and knee as many times as you can buttonmash in.

* [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Ganondorf's]] side-B special move in ''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.
