[[AC:Anime and Manga]]
* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'': The final form of Majin Buu, Kid Buu, does this before his final fight with Goku and Vegeta. Humorously, he continues pounding his chest even as Goku kicks him in the face and sends him flying into a cliff. There's no particular reason for him doing this - he's just [[AxCrazy completely off his rocker.]]

* Dian Fossey does this in ''Film/GorillasInTheMist'' when she imitates the gorillas' behaviour to blend in with the group. The scene is a bit of a FridgeLogic, considering that chest-beating often means a display of dominance or a challenge to fight - probably not the best idea when you are trying to earn the trust of a 300-pound silverback.
