A step above the NeckLift in terms of villainous posturing, and a sister trope to TouchOfTheMonster (though usually with slightly less innuendo. Usually. Compare LoadBearingHero and people lifting other things over their heads as a show of SuperStrength.

** Backbreaker: The assassination target is hoisted over the initiator's head, and then takes an over-the-knee backbreaker that would make Bane proud.

* In ''OneMustFall2097'', this is Jaguar's "Scrap move" (part one of the FinishingMove), complete with dropping the enemy robot on the ground. The "Destruction move" (part two) is continued from that position, as Jaguar leaps into the air and smashes the opponent into the ground so hard that it explodes into pieces.
