* ''TabletopGame/{{Reign}}'' has the advantage Thick Headed, which grants an extra [[SubsystemDamage wound box]] at the head location. The head location normally has the fewest wound boxes, and filling it up with damage will take you out. Even so, shock (nonlethal) damage to the head still goes away just as quickly and cleanly as it does to any other body part, so ''Reign'' characters can still get knocked out without any long-term effects. Even killing (lethal) damage [[CriticalExistenceFailure doesn't actually impede you until all your wound boxes are filled]].

* ''Violence Fight'' has Ron Max, whose character profile says that his head is hard enough to break rocks.

* In ''[[Webcomic/SquidRow Randie And Ryan]]'', the concussion is treated very realistically. That is, after a period where Randie appears to be fine after her fall, she, subverting this trope, starts to act and speak in a confused and incoherent manner. Fortunately, Spill is driving and very quickly changes route to the ER. A prolonged recovery ensues.

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. All right, you can also have CirclingBirdies if you want. But ''nothing else.''

* 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]]).
