* A forced example in ''Film/TheSubstitute.'' The main character is a mercenary/former special ops soldier pretending to be a substitute teacher. When he's forced by another mercenary (who knows exactly who is) to fight with one of the villains, the second mercenary says, "Fight fair: none of that ninja s**t."

* In the otherwise forgettable ''Film/TangoAndCash'', a criminal leads up to a fight with one of the protagonists with some fancy martial aarts katas and shouts. The protagonist, unimpressed, punches him dead in the face and knocks him out with one shot. His comment is a ggruffly mumbled, "I hate you karate guys."

* ''StarTrekIIITheSearchForSpock'': The climax is a good old fistfight between Kirk and Kruge. Parodied and lampshaded by the ''MadMagazine'' spoof, where Kruge notes the irony of a retro fight in the middle of a FX-laden sci-fi film.

** The series in general has this with the "Hand-to-Hand" skill. (It was dropped as a skill as of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', but can still be utilized by the player.) In a series with all sorts of [[InfinityPlusOneSword legendarily powerful weapons]] floating around, getting really good at beating people up with your bare hands has its advantages.

** The skill doesn't exist in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', instead there is a perk under the Heavy Armor skill called "Fists of Steel" that improves punching while wearing heavy gauntlets, by an amount based on the gauntlets' defensive power. There is also a unique set of gloves with an enchantment that boosts punching, and they can be disenchanted so that you can put the enchantment on other things (appropriately, you can only put it on gloves, gauntlets, or rings). You can also make potions to boost your punches. And all of these bonuses stack together, so you can still deliver the pain with your fists, it just takes a bit more effort here.

* The Brawler class of ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' give variety to a system where barehanded combat is often relegated to the BareFistedMonk. Brawlers can utilize their unarmed strikes as well as a monk can - including the ability to use knees, elbows, headbutts, or other strikes beyond their fists - with the added bonus of being able to [[ConfusionFu switch their feats and styles on the fly,]] making them extremely versatile.

* Grunkle Stan in ''WesternAimation/GravityFalls'' has a background as an amateur boxer and petty criminal, and tends to solve any problem he can't talk his way out of with his fists. Over the course of the series he has punched out zombies, a dinosaur and [[spoiler:[[EldritchAbomination Bill Cipher]]]].

* The ''VideoGame/TalesSeries'' has many a BareFistedMonk in its playable casts, but Eizen from ''VideoGame/TalesOfBerseria'' stands out among the fist fighters with his rough style that emphasizes brute force augmented by his innate elemental powers. His first [[LimitBreak Mystic Arte]], for instance, simply has him go to town on the victim with a Dempsey Roll before finishing with an uppercut, while the third has just has him [[MegatonPunch slug them into the stratosphere.]]
