* [[{{Golemn}} Aganos]] of ''VideoGame/KillerInstinct'' has a finger flick attack. Predictably, it does minimal damage, but it has the unique function of being able to destroy projectiles.

* The ''{{Champions}}'' splatbook ''The Ultimate Brick'', which explores the wonderful world of SuperStrength and how to use it, features two of these. One, the "Finger-Flick to the Forehead", is a massive attack that is limited to non-lethal damage, and guaranteed to render any non-NighInvulnerable foe unconscious. The second, named coincidentally the "Finger-Poke of Doom", is rather more messy, and consists of the [[SuperStrength super-strong]] character literally ramming one of his fingers into the chest of his opponent as if it were a knife blade.

* WCW's fiasco overshadows what may be pro wrestling's ''original'' "Finger Poke of Doom" match when Wrestling/ShawnMichaels lost the European title to Wrestling/TripleH in December 1997. It usually gets a pass for a few reasons: they had something that somewhat ''resembled'' a match, it wasn't for the company's biggest title, it didn't make '''''MONTHS''''' worth of storylines completely moot, and got played up like the joke that it was. In {{Kayfabe}}, Wrestling/SgtSlaughter had put [=HHH=] and [=HBK=] in a match to try and create tension between them. However, the two of them figured out what Slaughter was planning, and mocked him by having an intentionally silly match, even cutting [[LargeHam incredibly hammy]] promos when Hunter won.

* In ''HulkVs'', Loki unleashes the Hulk from Bruce Banner by lightly "bitch slapping" Banner, which is powerful enough to throw Banner across the room. Justified since Loki's a god and Banner's a physical weakling.

* In one of the ''HeraldsOfValdemar'' books, this is played with when a very powerful mage knows he could quiet a raging storm from the comfort of his chair with a few little hand motions, but opts to go the dramatic route, complete with flinging open the shutters and waving grandiosely, because he knows that the lesser mage watching him will be more impressed.
