* [[CombatPragmatist Dark Types]] in ''{{Pokemon}}'' specialize in dirty tricks; they even have a move called Beat Up which lets every Pokemon on the team get in an attack. They are weak to Fighting Types. A special trait called ''Justified'' boosts some Pokemon's attack whenever they're hit with a Dark-type move.

* In ''[[XWingSeries Starfighters of Adumar]]'', Wes Janson turns a [[ImpossiblyCoolWeapon blastsword]] duel into a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown by disarming his opponent. First, he blocks the incoming attack with his own blastsword and proceeds to eventually knock the blastsword from his opponent's hand, breaking it in the process. Then, after Wes throws away his own blastsword (to Wedge standing behind him), the opponent goes for his knife, which Wes proceeds to kick out of his hand. Justified in that Wes Janson is well-schooled in hand-to-hand combat; the opponent is a noble who knows only the stylized form of [[CoolButInefficient blastsword dueling]] and nothing of [[GoodOldFisticuffs real fighting techniques]].

** Aisha, at least, has the excuse of being a naturally bulletproof catgirl berserker. Suzuka, however, can do this despite being human because of her CharlesAtlasSuperpower.

* A full chapter in ''{{Holyland}}'' (16, if you want to fast-forward) is devoted to [[ShownTheirWork demonstrating how to disarm a knife-user in a street fight]]. The narration also states that it only works here because the knife-user was an amateur and the unarmed warrior was an ex-professional kickboxer and karate black belt.

* ''RurouniKenshin'': In Sanosuke's debut, he fights a large drunk who strikes him with a hidden knife. But as a testament to Sano's MadeOfIron nature, not only does the knife fail to injure Sanosuke, the drunk's arm breaks.

** That said, it's sometimes played straight, as Diabolik can throw his knives faster than someone can draw or train a gun on him and tends to rely on ambushes anyway.

** That said, it's sometimes played straight, as Diabolik can throw his knives faster than someone can draw or train a gun on him and tends to rely on ambushes anyway. Also, one memorable occasion saw [[SympatheticInspectorAntagonist Ginko]] punching out a knife-wielding Diabolik, but [[JustifiedTrope there's a good reason]]: they had both turned corner and Ginko threw his punch at what he believed was a normal gangster so fast he didn't realize it was Diabolik until ''after'' the King of Terror hit the ground.
