* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': Guts' SingleStrokeBattle with Serpico in the ''Chapter of the Binding Chain'' has Serpico end up with the front of his boot busted open because he narrowly avoided Gurs' [[{{BFS}} Dragon Slayer]] by jumping, while Guts finds that he received a very thin, shallow cut on the cheek from Serpico's saber. Guts, impressed at how Serpico almost got him, licks the blood that flows from the cut and says "Nice draw style".

* A variant in ''VideoGame/{{Danganronpa 2}}'': near the end of the first "execution" cutscene, where [[BigBad Monokuma]] demonstrates his power by [[spoiler: gunning down Monomi]], a single ricochet leaves a cut on protagonist Hajime Hinata's cheek in exactly this fashion, underscoring just how real the stakes are.

* In ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' version three, Maxie Dasai gets hit in the face [[AnnoyingArrows by an arrow]] and comes away with a minor wound across her cheek, somehow managing to avoid any serious harm. (By luck, rather than skill, the archer, Renee Valenti, had been ''trying'' to kill Maxie).

* If the character who receives a papercut flinches or stops dead in his or her tracks, chances are the attack was a mere warning shot by the true {{Badass}} to make the recipient stop whatever he or she was going to do.

* Happens quite a lot in ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar''''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'', mostly of the 'Shoulder ClothingDamage' or 'Cheek Papercut' varieties. The latter usually gets followed up by the recipient of the wound taking a finger to the cut and then licking blood from it.

The act of making a very fine incision upon someone with an attack that cannot even remotely believably do such a thing, usually incorporating elements of ImplausibleFencingPowers or ImprobableAimingSkills. Though paper cutting is usually just the leading cause for the third item of StandardBleedingSpots, used to maintain tension in a long battle or uphold realism when HitPoints are in play, it can also effectively drive home a point about the character on either end of the attack:
