* 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 gets a pass for a few reasons: they had something that ''at the very least'' "resembled" a match[[labelnote:In Detail]]Hunter gently pushed Shawn over, ran the ropes back and forth across the ring for an [[OverlyLongGag absurdly long time]], then dropped the weakest splash in wrestling history on an immobile Shawn and covered him for the 3 count.[[/labelnote]], it was for a tertiary title instead of a world title, it didn't make months worth of storylines completely moot, and it 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. The result was ''screamingly'' hilarious.

** In the fallout of the match, Nash 'boasted' to the press that if anyone ''else'' been on the receiving end, "[[GallowsHumor it would have killed them!]]"

** In every game from V onward, you may encounter a creature known as a Tonberry. Aside from its unusually high HP, it seems utterly pitiful at first. It's small and (by monster standards) adorable. Its weapon of choice is a kitchen knife, in a universe where ridiculously large swords and deadly magic spells are the norm. On top of all that, it's slow; it must spend several turns at the beginning of battle just walking up to you before it can attack (the vast majority of foes can attack right away). So naturally, the first time a player ever encounters one, they may assume that it's a joke enemy, and pummel away with melee attacks. \\

** Let's not forget Shin and his favorite execution method: effortlessly pushing a single finger directly through a man's chest. This is how Kenshiro got his scars.

** Let's not forget Shin and his Shin's favorite execution method: method is effortlessly pushing a single finger directly through a man's chest. This is how Kenshiro got his scars.



** And let's not forget Sano's original entrance in the manga. He enters a bar brawl with someone twice his size, and knocks him flying several feet by flicking him in the forehead.



** Another example could be the Spy's butterfly knife, which is the weakest default melee weapon... unless you are attacking from behind, in which case it gives an [[BackStab instant kill]].



** Let's not forget ''VideoGame/Persona4''. The main character [[spoiler:defeats Izanami-no-Okami]] by summoning Izanagi-no-Okami -- [[spoiler:her HUSBAND!]] How does he do this? After crushing his tarot card, he raises a single finger. When Izanagi-no-Okami appears, he simply points at [[spoiler:Izanami-no-Okami]]. [[EarthShatteringKaboom Everything dies.]]

** The Cipher Pol 9 agents and several high-ranking Marine officers literally have a Finger Poke of Doom in their ''Shigan'' technique, in which what looks like a harmless poke actually carries the strength of a gunshot.

* Parodied in the ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' doujin "Dorikano." ThePowerOfLove--or lust, to be more precise--makes Homura so powerful that she destroys an invincible mega-witch with a literal finger-poke. [[AllJustADream This turns out to be only a hypothetical scenario.]]
