* The playable Red Hood in ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'' both plays this straight and subverts it. One of his stealth takedowns from behind just quickly snaps his opponent's neck. However, corner takedown victims lose their balance, giving Red Hood enough leverage for a more powerful snap.

The frequency of this in film and TV is possibly because it offers a fairly brutal way of killing someone [[BloodlessCarnage without having]] to use or show any blood. It is also often used as storytelling shorthand for "this character is a Badass".

* In the Fight Club activity inside ''SaintsRow2'', you must finish off your opponents in this way. It is portrayed as being rather difficult though, as it will later involve a lot of ButtonMashing [[PressXToNotDie to kill]], and it is done in a full rear chokehold like in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid''. This is also how human shields are disposed of when unarmed or equipped with a rocket launcher.
** In the sequel SaintsRowTheThird Killbane, leader of rival gang The Luchadores, does a one-handed version to [[spoiler: Kiki [=DeWynter=]]] after she provokes him by calling him [[DoNotCallMePaul by his real name]].

* In ''Manga/ACertainScientificRailgun'', there's the Dorm Supervisor, who punishes people this way while somehow not killing them. She's snapped Kuroko's neck at least twice and Mikoto's at least once. She's actually scary enough that at least two level fives fear her.
