*A rare non-comedic version of this trope appears in chapter 122 of ''Webcomic/BlackHaze'' where, as a child, [[spoiler:Kielnode Chrishi]] was almost murdered this way by [[spoiler:his half-siblings, who hated him for being the bastard child of their father's [[TheMistress mistress]]]]. The attack left him unconscious and bleeding heavily from the head, and if not for the intervention of [[spoiler:a magician from [[TheGovernment the Tower]]]], he very likely would have bled out and died.
