* Film/TheThreeStooges used this a '''lot'''. Curly in particular dulled and blunted axes, saws, and chisels galore.

* Film/TheThreeStooges used this a '''lot'''. Curly in particular dulled and blunted axes, saws, and chisels galore. In one short, he headbutted a charging bull - and the bull was ''instantly'' knocked unconscious.

** George Chuvalo is frequently cited by boxing fans as this (since Chuvalo fought powerful, hard hitting heavyweights such as Joe Frazier, George Foreman, Muhammad Ali, and many lesser known but powerful punchers) without ever being knocked down. Chuvalo himself has said that's a mistake by the fans, and that a lot of times punches that looked like they hit him flush were being partially blocked by Chuvalo's arms or that he was moving in subtle ways to rob the blows of their force. Chuvalo has been known to quip "If I really got hit by all the punches people ''think'' I was hit by, I'd be brain dead!"
** The legendary Roberto Duran fought professionally for over ''three decades'' (from 1968-2001) starting as a skinny 120 pound kid and fighting as high as light heavyweight (175 pounds) in a sport where few fighters are able to effectively fight at more than 20 pounds above where they begin. During all that time, and all those fights frequently fighting bigger men, he was knocked out exactly ''once'', by none other than [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZdLJAYzV9M Tommy Hearns]], who is a serious contender for being one of the hardest hitting fighters of all time. In a few other bouts the fights were stopped due to injuries or a referee stopping a fight, but that is the only time that Duran was legitimately knocked out.

That said, while Duran displayed an amazing ability to take punishment and be unaffected by it on many occasions, he was also a master at defense and excellent at avoiding or minimizing the blows of his opponents.

* ''Series/BlakesSeven'': Avon was knocked out an impressive number of times through the series, apparently without damaging his IQ (although he did go slightly off the edge in the last season).

* ''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]].

* 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.
