* 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.

*** 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.

* In the GrandFinale of ''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.

* In ''StarWarsCloneWars'', General Grievous uses a variation where he grabs an opponent's head with his clawed foot, smashes it into the ground and then throws the corpse into the ceiling.
