** This practice is the premise behind one of the microgames in ''VideoGame/WarioWare: Smooth Moves'': You play as the supervising monk and must do a quick slapping motion with the Wii Remote whenever he passes by a monk nodding off or not paying attention to put them back in line.

* In ''DragonAgeTheCrownOfThorns'', the WisePrince protagonist applies a very strong backhand to Faren, the dwarven commoner, in order to snap him out of a serious case of [[HeroicBSOD shut-down brain]] that the latter ended up in after being shoved into his worst nightmare by the Sloth Demon. He follows it with a CooldownHug of epic proportions. BigBrotherMentor indeed.

* General George S. Patton once famously slapped a young soldier who seemed to be suffering from shell shock (it turned out later he had malaria). It almost ended his career, proving that this [[DontTryThisAtHome isn't a good idea to try for real]].
** As a side note, the soldier Patton slapped later said, "He was probably pretty well worn out himself." Combat can do strange things to people. Patton's popularity saved him.

* During the Sicily campaign, General George S. Patton once famously slapped a young soldier who seemed to be suffering from shell shock (it turned out in two separate incidents. One was later he had malaria). found to be suffering from malaria, the other was JustFollowingOrders after repeatedly requesting to stay with his unit. It almost ended his Patton's career, proving that this [[DontTryThisAtHome isn't a good idea to try for real]].
** As a side note, the soldier Patton slapped later said, "He was probably pretty well worn out himself." Combat can do strange things to people. Patton's popularity and [[UltimateJobSecurity effectiveness as a battle commander]] saved him.

His {{Sidekick}}, DistaffCounterpart, [[NumberTwo right-hand man or woman]], love interest (specially the ladies of the {{Tsundere}} or BrokenBird kind) or [[TheLeader superior]] jolts him back to his senses with a sharp slap or a straight-up punch to the face, and occasionally a retort for him to get his head out of his ass already (see entry title for the archetypal one). The shame-faced hero says something along the lines of "Thanks. I needed that." Less appreciatively he'll say "[[Memes/{{Gundam}} Not even my dad hits me!]]", but will eventually calm down.
