** Also, when Laurie and Daniel (two retired costumed heroes) reminisce about past supervillains, they talk about a crazy wacko named Captain Carnage who seemed to commit crimes solely so he could be physically beaten by heroes. He encouraged this, until he pulled it on Rorshach and was thrown down an elevator shaft for his troubles. This causes Dan and Laurie to crack up, and then stop as they unconvincingly agree that [[DudeNotFunny it's really not funny]].

* ''Series/MurdochMysteries'': At the end of "Murdoch.com", Inspector Brackenreid attempts to get Crabtree to punch him to make up for his manhandling of Crabtree while he was [[IntoxicationEnsues unwittingly suffering from cocaine withdrawl]]. Crabtree, understandably reluctant to strike his commanding officer, eventually just lightly taps Brackenreid on the shoulder and says that they can call it even.

When they are both on the street after a second bombing, Murdoch tells the inspector, "Shove me!" Brackenreid takes the hint and shoves Murdoch against a nearby wall a few times to cover their quick chat, then Brackenreid sends Murdoch on his way with a threat to arrest him.

For whatever reason, one character has to convince another to try to strike him/her. Perhaps it is in order to show the avoidance skills of the hittee, to teach the hitter how to hit, or to intentionally hurt the hittee. Occasionally, it's to make up for the hittee previously attacking the hitter. One common use is when the hittee is an ActionGirl, and the hitter WouldntHitAGirl. Standing close together, the hittee taunts the hitter with ever-escalating demands of "Hit me, dammit!", countered with demurrings of "I can't/won't!" This continues for several volleys until the hitter strikes the hittee. If it's for comic effect, the hittee is actually surprised and may be knocked out. He/She may deliver a line of surprise such as, [[CaptainObvious "You hit me!"]] Sometimes crosses over with MyFistForgivesYou or with SelfMutilationDemonstration ('cause you might ask someone else); frequently shows up in MakeItLookLikeAStruggle. StrikeMeDownWithAllOfYourHatred is when they want to be hit so the other guy will break his moral code and fall from grace. Another variant of this trope is when someone asks to be hit because [[FetishFuel it turns them on]], although that usually will have [[BondageIsBad negative consequences]].

** Note that the ''Rocky'' fight '''is''' based on a real bout. MuhammadAli suspected that stamina was a weakness for George Foreman, so in their 1974 bout Ali taunted Foreman, blocked most of Foreman's blows, then taunted him some more. [[MyDefenseNeedNotProtectMeForever Foreman tired quickly]], and Ali knocked Big George out for the only time in Foreman's career. Similarly, Rocky is trying to defend against all of Clubber's big punches, although just like with Ali-Foreman, some get through.

* In ''MarvelZombies'', after a group of superhero zombies [[spoiler:eat Magneto]], Bruce begs someone to hit him so he can turn into the Hulk as a large bone will come out of his stomach otherwise (as the Hulk's stomach is large enough to hold the bone). Thor does wallop him with the hammer fairly quickly, although it doesn't really work.

* ComicBook/AmbushBug does this to Batman in the incredibly meta final episode of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'', because he knows that the show is losing viewers and that some random violence will attract them back. Batman is confused by this ultimately obliges.
