** Later in the Thousand-Year-Blood-War-Arc, [[BigBad Yhwach]] does this to [[spoiler: Zaraki Kenpachi]] of all people, which is quite a feat given that the latter is over two meters tall. Of course, this being [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy Yhwach]], he only does it ''after'' he's thoroughly [[CurbStompBattle curbstomped]] [[spoiler:Kenpachi]].

May or may not come directly before a NeckSnap -- typically, though, a Neck Lift is a way to show that you're serious about this and won't take any bull. Usually a case of YouFailPhysicsForever if a human-sized lifter doesn't even lean back to counterbalance the weight they're holding up. This trope principally runs on RuleOfCool though to make the lifter look like one hell of a {{Badass}} and for general spectacle so physics schmysics. Even moreso if they're performing this trick via [[MindOverMatter telekinesis]], resulting in the PsychicStrangle.
