* In one of the ''AttackOnTitan'' OVA's, Eren's group gets attacked by bandits. He fights back against a guy with a gun, and the others try to escape. The gun fires, just grazing Jean's cheek, causing him to freeze in shock over how close the bullet was to killing him.

* If the character who receives a papercut does not flinch or generally carries on with his business, it is a very good indication of his or her badassery.
* But if he does flinch or stop dead on his tracks, chances are the attack was a mere warning shot by the true BadAss to make you stop whatever you were going to do.

Paper cutting is done with equal yet ever improbable frequency with both actual bladed weapons such as swords and knives, as well as bullets and magic projectiles. Never mind what properties have been attributed to the latter and that a bullet passing right by the skin would more likely burn and bruise it than cut it with surgical precision.

* Happens to Dilandau in ''Anime/TheVisionOfEscaflowne'', courtesy of Van's sword. To say that this angers Dilandau is a ''huge'' {{Understatement}}, especially as it does [[ScarsAreForever scar over]], but it really was just a scratch. The only reason it scars over is that Dilandau kept picking at it.

* In ''SamuraiChamploo'', after being deprived of his sword, Mugen is still able to provide a very fine cut across an opponent's cheek with a roundhouse kick. He's just that badass.

* In ''[[Manga/RanmaOneHalf Ranma 1/2]]'', during their first battle, Ryoga strikes at Ranma with an open-handed punch, which results in a PaperCutting wound on Ranma's cheek. This indicates both Ryoga's incredible strength (especially considering he missed Ranma with the strike in question) and Ranma's badassery, since he didn't seem to think much of it and proceeded to soundly thump Ryoga.

* During the non-canon Christian Arc of ''RurouniKenshin'', Sanosuke learns a martial arts move that allows him to paper cut an opponent if his punches miss within a small margin.
* In ''FushigiYuugi'', during the fight between Tasuki and Tamahome, Tasuki stabs at Tamahome with a relatively [[PaperFanOfDoom blunt instrument]]. Tamahome's face is completely unscathed, but as he turns away, the very thin headband he was wearing splits apart.

* Occurs during the final battle of ''Anime/SwordOfTheStranger'', twice in the same battle- with Luo-Lang [[spoiler:managing to nick Nanashi's leg]], while Nanashi [[spoiler:scores a classic delayed cheek-cut moments later]]. It gets messier after that, though.

* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' does this occasionally. The most straightforward example is probably the training exercise where Asuna does this to Evangeline using ''a PaperFanOfDoom''. Eva is [[strike:not happy]] disturbingly blissed-out by this, and [[DisproportionateRetribution encases Asuna in a block of ice as a response.]]

* A variant in ''VideoGame/Danganronpa2'': 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.
