* ''TheYoungOnes'': Vyvyan who, in one episode, strikes oil by cracking the basement floor with his head, later helps dig it out by headbutting the hole (which leads to Neil accidentally putting a pickaxe through his head), and, from his first appearance, has metal studs on his forehead.

* In ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}} gets his head smashed into a metal railing and is then knocked out with a punch to the face. Despite the fact that Comicbook/BlackWidow mentions that she hit him hard enough to reset his brain and undo SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}}'s [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashing]], he is somehow still able to rush into battle [[ImprobableAimingSkills and effectively take down multiple targets with a bow and arrow]].

* 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.

Tropes can't be "partially" subverted/averted.
* Played half-straight in ''{{Yosh}}'', where the first thing Phil does after knocking out a witch is check that he didn't kill her (she's alright).

* In ''Webcomic/EverydayHeroes'', Jane first met Mr. Mighty when she was working as a villain. She tried to ambush him with a [[http://eheroes.smackjeeves.com/comics/1990917/their-first-meeting/ kick to the head]], resulting in a broken ankle for her (and some very unladylike language).

* ''UncleBuck''. John Candy's character survives a bowling ball falling from a tall closet shelf onto his skull. * In ''Film/BackToTheFuture'', Marty [=McFly=] gets [=KOed=] when he gets hit by a car belonging to his mom's family, whacking his head on the pavement in the process. There don't appear to be any direct long-term consequences, unless you count the risk of CriticalExistenceFailure from his mom falling for him. In the second film, Biff [=KOs=] him when he visits the clock-tower hotel and casino. Later, he is briefly [=KOed=] by a door when his earlier self opens it; this is probably less disabling than not getting hit by the door would have been. And these are probably not all the examples. ** In one of the series' famous sets of parallel events, Marty is knocked out cold in each movie, followed each time by a scene of him recovering with Lorraine (in Part 3 it's Maggie) at his bedside. In Part 3 the concussion happens when his head hits a fencepost. Needless to say, Marty will need a CT-scan when he gets back to 1985.

A subtrope of MadeOfIron, perhaps its most common usage. Whether in a TapOnTheHead situation, UseYourHead, or any other, getting hit on the head has no lasting effects whatsoever. If you clobber TheHero, the villain, or assorted small fry, they may be very, very dizzy or even out for a while but they will never suffer worse than a headache once they wake up -- unless EasyAmnesia is needed. In short, fictional head injuries are no worse than inconvenient, so have as many as you want. All right, you can also have CirclingBirdies if you want. But ''nothing else.''
