* Also {{Deconstructed|trope}} in case of Wrestling/KatsuyoriShibata, who is known for his hard hitting offense, including headbutts. During the match with Wrestling/KazuchikaOkada at ''Sakura Genesis 2017'', he gave Okada such a powerful headbutt that it caused a subdural hematoma that reuqired surgery. Although the surgery was successful, Shibata suffers paralysis on his left side and perhaps may never compete again.

* Subverted in ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' in the case of Sean O'Cann. Upon his introduction to the game, Sean is already suffering from a head wound as a result of landing on something hard after being thrown onto the island. After this wound is bandaged, it's seemingly forgotten, up until a couple of days later, when Sean ''really'' starts to suffer, his vision blurring frequently and he himself collapsing on more than one occasion. Averted in the v4 Pregame when Christopher Carlson gets the crap beaten out of him by Monty Pondsworth at lunch; he's stated to have spent a good week with a headache and spent the rest of the day having trouble walking.

* ''Series/StargateSG1'': Teal'c at one point "blocks" a punch by simply bowing his head and allowing the fist to hit him square in the emblem he has embedded in his forehead, which seems to break the attacker's hand. That emblem is made of solid gold.

* Averted in a scene in the {{Pixar}} movie ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}''. Early in the movie [[spoiler:Carl]] in a moment of anger hits a man over the head with a metal object ([[spoiler:his steel walker cane]]). The injured man makes cries of pain as he stumbles back with blood running from a gash on his head.

* Wrestling/BobSapp had a legitimately hard head but unlike most examples, getting hit there tended to demoralize him even though it didn't hurt very much because he was a large man used to towering over opponents and thus not used to it.

* Ox Baker would bash his own head with a chair to both show his opponents that he was not worried about anything they might try to do to them and try to intimidate them by showing what kind of harm he was willing to do himself, so how much he would try to do to them would set in.
* Wrestling/{{WWE}}'s Wrestling/VladimirKozlov often uses his head as a battering ram to devastating effect on his opponent and no ill effect on him.

* [[Wrestling/TheSheepherders The Sheepherders[=/=]Bushwhackers]] had heads so hard, their Battering Ram finishing move involved one grabbing the head of the other and running it into their opponent.
* [[Wrestling/AllenCoage Bad News Brown]] often simply got angry when his head was slammed into a turnbuckle.

* The first recruitable units in ''VideoGame/BrutalLegend'' were once enslaved miners, forced to break rocks with their heads instead of proper tools. Freed from the mine, they now use their heads for ramming attacks in battle. (It's a setting that runs on ThePowerOfRock, so they're referred to as "headbangers.") It's made clear that they have severely limited and confused mental capacity as a result, though they do occasionally pull of surprising feats of intelligence, like constructing the [[TankGoodness Skullsplitter]].

Added DiffLines:

* The T29 Heavy Tank in ''VideoGame/WorldOfTanks'' is infamous for how heavily armored its turret is. It has so much frontal armor on the turret that when it's hull-down it's effectively immune to all but the most powerful guns, and even they won't be able to reliably damage it.

* Subverted with the dinosaur Pachycephalosaurus. It was once believed that this dinosaur did use its dome-shaped head to ram into one another's heads (much like modern-day bighorn sheep). However, recent fossil evidence indicates that this was ''not'' the case and, instead, Pachycephalosaurus tended to fight for mates/territory by using their dome-shaped heads to ram one another in the stomach, thighs, or legs (Much like what you'd see in modern-day giraffes).
