* Whenever forced to fight hand-to-hand, inspector Ginko from ''ComicBook/{{Diabolik}}'' uses this kind of stule, good enough that even Diabolik, who is noted to have exceptional physical abilities and knows sophisticated martial arts, ends punched out most of the times-including that time Ginko was escaping from a gang's lair punching out any {{Mook}} he met and knocked out Diabolik (who was there for a heist) ''before noticing he wasn't a mook''.

* In the ''Literature/GotrekAndFelix'' novels when Felix first meets Princess Ulrika she challenges him to a duel with lightweight fencing swords that Felix is not as familiar with as his regular sword. As the fight begins, he quickly realizes he is going to lose but only because he is adhering to the rules of the duel and is trying to copy Ulrika's fancy sword moves. When Ulrika moves in for another attack, Felix blocks her blade, punches her in the face, and sweeps her legs out from under her, winning the fight. It turns out that this wins a great amount of respect for Felix from Ulrika because Felix didn't let the fact that she was nobility [[WouldHitAGirl (or a woman),]] get in the way of their duel and that he took her completely seriously as a fighter. [[BestHerToBedHer This results in Ulrika being naked in Felix's bed when he retires for the night.]]

* Most of the combat in ''ZenoClash''. While some enemies use elaborate spin kicks and martial arts, [[PlayerCharacter Gant's]] unarmed fighting style essentially boils down to bashing his foes with his fists until they get dizzy, then smashing their skulls against his kneecaps.

* Everett in ''OBrotherWhereArtThou'' tries to beat up his wife's new man, thinking the little nerdy-looking Vernon will be easy to defeat. [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass However,]] Vernon adopts the classic pugilistic pose, easily dodges Everett's clumsy swings, then punches his lights out with swift, unanswered jabs.

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

* Flip-flopped in ''Film/IpMan''. Wong Leung and his friends' skills with street fighting prove no match for Ip Man's martial arts, and they're soundly beaten. Then again, Twister's Western boxing proves brutally effective against Chinese martial arts, enough to [[spoiler:actually cause Master Hung's death]] and give [[ShowyInvincibleHero Master Ip]] the figth of his live.
** In the third movie we have Frank (Mike Tyson) another boxer who unlike Twister knows how to use the Ol'Fisticuffs to counter kicks and is the second person to figth Ip Man to a draw[[note]]The first being Master Hung[[/note]] and only because a time limit imposed by himself.

**In general, militaries try to teach their recruits any type of hand to hand combat techniques that will end the fight as soon as possible, with their own soldiers surviving the fight.

*To a certain degree, this is how karate came to be. In the 1400s', when the Japanese colonized Okinawa, the ruling sword wielding samurai confiscated from the locals any metal tool that could be used as a weapon. To keep themselves safe, the Okinawans developed a martial art they called "empty hand," since the purpose was to fight unarmed against a possibly armed enemy, which eventually evolved into karate.
