* ''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.

Misato slaps him and points out that if he dies all hurt his friends went through and all sacrifices they did will be meaningless. -->''"Why am I the one who always stays alive? Why do people have to sacrifice themselves for me? I'm not worth it! My life is not worth so much pain. I should have been the one to die. Maybe there's still time to put an end to the pain."''\\ ''"Shinji!"''\\ ''I gasped as I felt Misato's hand hitting my cheek.''\\ ''"Don't you ever say that, Shinji! Don't even dare think about it! If you die now, then all the sacrifice and suffering your friends went through would become meaningless! Don't disgrace them!"''\\ ''The words hit me even harder then her hand. I had never thought about things this way.''

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 still calm down.
