This is a popular CharlesAtlasSuperpower, as a necklift is almost impossible in real life. There is no formal world record for the one-armed bicep curl, but there are two filmed "world records" of 135 pounds, both of which were done by angling the lifter's body under the weight and lifting with the back. No one could lift someone their own size into the air with one arm.

* In ''ComicBook/PowerGirl'' story ''Fanfic/AForceOfFour'', U-Ban has a penchant for neck-lifting Power Girl at least once when they clash.



* In chapter 26 of Phantomdare1's Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs story, ''Fanfic/TracksOfLight'', Purple Eyes grabs the back of Summer's neck and lifts her up into the air, trying to get her partner, Ben, to fight him. It works. Later on in the chapter, Ben returns the favor.

* "Fanfic/AenrhienVailiuri" has Morgan lift [[spoiler:a Kazon maje]], who's taller than she is, clear off the floor. (She's Romulan so she's stronger than a human.) [[spoiler:She then [[NeckSnap breaks his neck]].]]

* Michael Myers from the ''Franchise/{{Halloween}}'' series does this to few unlucky souls right before killing them as he's unnaturally strong. Most notably in [[Film/{{Halloween}} the first film]] when he lifts [[spoiler: Bob before pinning him to wall with a knife]].

* ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'': The Beast holds Gaston over the edge of the roof after defeating him. Notable in that both the laws of physics were maintained because even with his strength, the Beast holds onto a gargoyle to stay balanced, and the Beast is savvy enough to hold Gaston over the edge of the roof (making escape through jerking his head back a very bad idea). The Beast also has a ''far'' longer reach than Gaston so punching or kicking is also out of the question.

** Zoro once gets caught in a Neck Lift by Miss Monday, a bodybuilder-like woman. His response is a FacePalmOfDoom.
** He also gets one from Arlong a few arcs prior. Arlong was going to kill him while holding him like this, but Zoro manages to distract him long enough for Luffy to rejoin the fight and switch places with him.

** Heroic example comes from Sanji's introduction where after brutalizing Fullbody for wasting food, he [[http://www.opgt.it/files/gallerie/utenti/usr-2974/sanji%20vs%20fullbody.jpg dangles the Marine by the neck]] Sanji even has Fullbody's blood on his hand when he drops him.
