* 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).

* In the ''Gensokyo20XX'' Series, it was mentioned that Ran had this as a child and presumably still does, though, it is noted to be kind of a deconstruction in that a rock hard skull may protect from brain injuries but not from pain or, for that matter, concussions, seeing as she had gotten three of them in her childhood.

* ''Series/TeenWolf'': All of the characters have been bashed in the head one time or another with no repercussions. Justified case as most of them are supernatural creatures with healing powers, particularly all the werewolves. However there's no excuse for Stiles, the TokenHuman of the pack, who gets knocked out multiple times thanks to being the NonActionGuy but shakes it off within minutes.

* In ''Film/HomeAlone 2'', Marv gets hit by several bricks dropped by Kevin from three stories above, which normally should've killed him (but then again, so should a lot of the other traps).

* In ''[[ErnestPWorrell Ernest Rides Again]]'', the eponymous Great Redneck Hope ends up shot in the head by a renegade nailgun while pretending to be Indiana Jones at a construction site. He removes his hat to reveal that all three nails bent on impact -- "I'm glad it was the ''hard'' end!" -- and later, when [[spoiler:the villainous Dr. Glencliff tries to remove the Crown Jewels of England from his head]] by cutting the top half of his cranium off with a surgical saw, Ernest's head turns out to be hard enough to ''blunt'' it.
