* 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]].

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.

* ''Series/MythBusters'' tested this trope on their December 22nd 2010 episode. Their result? ''Confirmed''. While not up to control, all three testers did better in practical tests when frazzled and then slapped than when unslapped.
** At least when the subject isn't suffering from PTSD, as above.
*** Depends, if the subject is already in a situation which can trigger a psychosis episode, it can actually snap them out of it. Largely due to the endorphins that get released from the sudden shock.
** This is because being slapped activates the flight-or-fight response. PTSD is this response having caused too much stress leading to a mental breakdown, so activating it could actually make it worse.
** Even earlier than this episode, they examined this trope in terms of a "sobering up" technique after getting drunk and deemed it plausible. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9mmJMIwsaDQ&feature=player_detailpage#t=107s Cue Adam getting slapped by Jamie]] (Cue to 1:47).
