* PlayedForLaughs in ''Literature/DaveBarrySleptHere'', on UsefulNotes/RichardNixon's defeat in the California gubernatorial election of 1962:
-->In his concession speech, Nixon told the press: "You won't have Dick Nixon to kick around anymore," prompting the reporters, in a fit of nostalgia, to batter him unconscious with their wingtips. [[RunningGag This was widely believed to be the end of his career.]]

** Earthquake (Wrestling/JohnTenta) and his running seated senton (the "Earthquake Splash"), sometimes as many as five times after the match was over.over, usually resulting in his opponent having to be carried out on a stretcher. During his heel run, Earthquake famously did this to Wrestling/HulkHogan outside of the ring, setting the stage for one of the biggest feuds of the time.

* Wrestling/BryanDanielson's going to kick your head in. Before he got famous for that though he had a particularly mean example with the butterfly suplex, the start up to which is a potential submission hold itself, which Danielson would often hold in long after the opponent had submitted, till they passed out or the referee demanded a break, and ''then'' suplex them. Wrestling/SaraDelRey has also taken up this use of the butterfly suplex, naturally.

A ''third'' Danielson signature is what resembles an inverted stump puller, only instead of pulling the emphasis his him stomping on your chest/neck/face, frequently part of his FiveMovesOfDoom.

* This was the lead in to a ''PetTheDog'' moment in World Wonder Ring STARDOM. [[Wrestling/SarahStock Dark Angel]] had been pretty rough with rookie Yuhi while defending the Wonder Of STARDOM against her at the "Golden Age" show but she respected the fight Yuhi had put up and tried to show her respects afterwards. When Yuhi tried to kick her away, Angel stomped her still and then [[MoodWhiplash proceeded to give her encouragement]].

* In the Grimm Brothers version on ''FairyTale/SnowWhite'', when the MagicMirror tells the Queen that Snow White is still alive, it adds insult to injury by saying that she is "a thousand times more fair" than the Queen is.

* In ''Literature/{{Carrie}}'', Tommy tells Sue about a time he'd kicked an unconscious bully in the ribs on the playground. Sure, the "victim" had tormented a lot of people, including Tommy himself, but he did still feel bad about the incident years later.

* From Music/Muse's "Liquid State": "Kick me when Iím down / Feed me poison, fill me till I drown." Though granted, it was a metaphor for his alcoholism.

* In ''LightNovel/AnotherNote'', all of Beyond Birthday's victims were drugged (it's not mentioned how or with what) before being violently killed and dismembered. (And ''most'' of the dismemberment happened post-mortem.) It's thought that the killer had a grudge against his victims, but it turns out that BB just viewed them as collateral damage against the ''real'' target of his anger, L. Later on, while BB is serving a life sentence (or longer) in {{Prison}} for his crimes, and after having suffered ''horrific'' burns from [[spoiler: a failed suicide attempt]], he [[spoiler: dies of a Kira-induced heart attack in his cell.]]

** Note that, unlike most examples, this is played sympathetically. In both cases Ender is confronted by an older, larger boy with a posse of older, larger boys at his back. He's perfectly aware that neither Stilson nor Bonzo will stop attacking him until he's dead, [[IDidWhatIHadToDo so he ends the conflicts permanently]]- even if he's unaware at the time just ''how'' permanently.
