* In VideoGame/{{Grandia}}, Justin informs his friend Sue that he's sailing to the new continent alone, not with her like she had assumed. Sue's response is to run home in tears... only to run back up to him after a few seconds, call him a traitor while kicking him in the shins, then run off again (she ends up stowing away on the ship he takes and comes along anyway). Later in the adventure, she tries to do the same to Gadwin, but he's TheBigGuy and doesn't even seem to notice or care.

Little girls kick people in the shins when they're angry. There doesn't seem to be any particular reason for it (sometimes it's that tiny rugrats can't kick much higher, but bigger kids still tend to go for the shins), but fiction writers everywhere seem to have agreed that when little girls are violent, the ideal expression of this violence is to kick people in the shins. Girls' lashing out violently at everyone about them is treated as cute and adorable, rather than brattiness or jerkassery.

* A heightwise rather than agewise version of this trope occurs in ''Series/AgentCarter''. Carter and Jarvis have to interview [[TheCasanova Howard Stark]]'s ex-girlfriends, none of whom are happy about it. Cue a montage where all the girls slap Jarvis across the face in lieu of Stark. Carter intercepts a slap from a short Asian beauty, who responds by kicking Jarvis in the shin instead.

* ''MarriedWithChildren'': In a two-part episode, Al wouldn't allow a woman to breastfeed her baby in the shoe store. In retaliation, Marcy brings several women with babies to protest. He then recognizes one of them as Jefferson holding a doll. Enraged, Al took it from him and asked if he knew what Al intended to do with it. Then a little girl appeared and Jefferson suggested returning it to the little girl he took it from. Al did and [[NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished got kicked for that]].
* Done in ''ILoveLucy'' when Lucy takes on a babysitting job. However the mother neglected to mention it would be for twins (when she met Lucy to drop one of them off. She waited till both were out of sight to drop off the other twin). So when Lucy goes to get one of them snacks and encounters the other who demands the same thing. The twin start whining and kicks her in the leg.

* [[spoiler:little Kay]] might be doing this to Edgeworth in case 4 of ''AceAttorneyInvestigations''. It's kinda hard to see if it is this or his privates.

* Turtle from ''TheWestingGame'' is known for this, especially in response to her braid being touched. This actually helped her solve the mystery when [[spoiler: a single kick caused two separate people to start limping.]]
