* ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'' [[AntiHero anti-hero]] Kaine uses this as his preferred method of murder, the "Mark of Kaine". He grabs the poor victim's face, then rips it off, leaving them dead and with a gruesome handprint as a souvenir. Ouch.
** In the recent ''Amazing Spider-Man'' story arc Grim Hunt, Peter does something similar to one of the villains that was dogging him through most of the arc. Fittingly, it was to avenge Kaine, who was dead. Again. He got better.

* This is the basis of Genthru's Little Flower attack in ''Manga/HunterXHunter'': He has the ability to convert his Nen (life force) to take on explosive qualities, and by channeling it through his arms, he can then expel it through his palms. The most common thing for him to do is this trope, grabbing someone by the face and detonating his Nen (but also creating Nen armor for his hands prior, or else he'll blow them up too).
