* Much like DeadlyDodging on Spidey's part, JustHitHim was thoroughly exercised by various supervillains and superheroes alike on ''SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'' due to the fact that the network suits didn't allow anyone to throw punches. Try to imagine the otherwise BadAss Kingpin or Venom being limited to picking up Spidey, then lightly dropping him again and proceeding to pronounce how invincible and deadly they truly are.

*** The reason punching is left out is because it's an imitatable action that can and will cause harm. However, if your kids start hugging each other...

* Also comes up in TheSpectacularSpiderman; in his first fight with the web-head, Rhino repeatedly grabs him and throws him away. This is after it has already been made abundantly clear to both of them that Spidey is a (relatively) FragileSpeedster while Rhino is a MightyGlacier, and that the fight would be over immediately if Rhino just kept hold of him and tore him apart.

* Averted by Gregor Clegane in ''[[ASongOfIceAndFire A Storm of Swords]]''. [[spoiler:Once he gets a hold of Oberyn Martell, he crushes his skull. Gregor was [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice pinned to the ground with a spear]] at the time, so he wasn't in much of a position to toss him around.]] * Happens a few times in ''SoonIWillBeInvincible'', such as when [=CoreFire=] throws Dr. Impossible around instead of finishing him before the Doctor can activate his weapon. [[{{Troperiffic}} It's that kind of book]].

Throws being powerful is of course normal for a fighting game and wouldn't justify inclusion. Making this trope a desirable option is a lot rarer.
Added DiffLines:
* ''VideoGame/DungeonFighterOnline'', like most of the BeatEmUp genre, contains very damaging throwing techniques (against anything which can actually be thrown). And as most grabs (not just player-initiated) include an autoaimed, super-armor-equipped dash to the enemy, they're also rather safe. (Long strike-focused combos still usually win out in damage.) But there does exist one (telekinetic) throw which true to this trope can toss an opponent fifty feet onto their back and is guaranteed to ''not hurt at all''. And against the spirit of this trope it's an invaluable asset... once you start having to hit targets ''in order'' with ugly consequences for even scratching something before its time. (Something which may [[SpitefulAI well be trying]] to get hit by you.)

* Occurs in issue #4 of ''TheAwesomeSlapstick''. During the Neutron Bum's explosive rampage, The Comicbook/NewWarriors, Comicbook/{{Daredevil}}, Comicbook/GhostRider, the Comicbook/FantasticFour, and Comicbook/TheAvengers were trying to formulate a proper attack plan. Slapstick simply went to a coffee shop, bought a cup of coffee, gave it to the bum, than knocked him out in mid-sip.

* Also averted in SinCity. Marv, Manute, and other large characters usually just punch or kick. It always looks painful too.

* A heroic example in ''PenguinMusume Heart'' has the title character gigantic and naked, and her opponent slightly bigger than usual and naked (or she just lost her clothes and was no bigger.) Title character proceeds to scream "how cute" and rubs her opponent against her face. Opponent goes on to bite her way out of the title characters' grip and jump away. And then they argue over the PowerOfLove, which results in said opponent eventually becoming gigantic too. Then again, Penguin's kinda [[TheDitz dumb]] so oh well.

* Nico Robin in ''OnePiece'' completely avoids this: her power is to sprout arms on any surface, and if she ever gets serious, the first thing she tries to do is snap her opponent's spine (most important enemies [[KryptoniteIsEverywhere still find a way to avoid losing this way]]).

...he's thrown the hero again -- right through a wall, so he must have thrown him pretty hard. However, the hero is now conveniently right next to the weapon he dropped earlier, giving him another chance to fight back. This could have been avoided if the mook would have JustHitHim!

* In ''SuzumiyaHaruhi'', [[spoiler:Ryouko]] decides to kill [[spoiler:Kyon]] with a knife, despite being able to control everything in the area, including the victim's movements. The attack could have been much easier if a more supernatural approach was taken, [[FanWank but that would probably defeat the purpose]]: [[spoiler:Ryouko wanted it to look like a normal killing to see how Haruhi would react to the death of a friend, not to see how Haruhi would react to the suspicious or outright supernatural death of a friend.]] This is supported by the fact that the fight with [[spoiler:Yuki]] was notably more supernatural, since the intent was simply to win.

* Can be invoked or defied in ''GodHand'' depending on what moves you give Gene and both have their uses. When you have [[SuperMode God Hand Unleash]] active you will lay the hurt on much more effectively by using moves that do not knock the target down or away, but when not in SuperMode being able to thin the ranks of the enemies bumrushing you by pushing them away does make a difference.
