* In ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', this happens between [[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk the Hulk]] and ComicBook/IronMan (With the latter using the [[MetaMecha Hulkbuster/Veronica armor]]). The shockwave of their punches clashing is strong enough to shatter glass windows and even push around civilians that are near the fight. Both Tony and Bruce seem unaffected but, given who [[PoweredArmor these]] [[MadeOfIron are]], it's justified.

Added DiffLines:

* Done at least once during the climax of ''VideoGame/Yakuza4''. It would seem over the top in any other gritty crime drama, but given that it's part of an elaborate fight sequence between 8 shirtless men on a skyscraper surrounded by raining money, it fights right in.

* ''TekkenBloodVengeance'' tried to up the ante on this by making it three-way between [[WellIntentionedExtremist Jun]], [[NobleDemon Kazuya]], and [[CardCarryingVillain Heihachi]] Mishima, causing a massive shockwave. Though, for three people's fists to meet in the center, at the same time, doesn't make a whole lot of sense. They would have to be either ''trying'' to meet in the center, aiming for thin air for some reason, or just being uniquely indecisive about who they want to punch most. To be fair, all of these are actually possible in context.

to:

* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' has this between All Might and Noumu, which not only creates a shockwave that nearly blows everyone away, but lets All Might realize that Noumu's quirk was shock ''absorption'', not ''nullification'', thus, there was a limit to how much abuse Noumu could take before All Might could completely overwhelm him.

* Bender does this with his [[{{Doppelganger}} "evil" twin]] Flexo in ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', but all they accomplish is hurting their hands. The page quote refers to an incident where Leela attempted to fight her alternate universe counterpart, [[InsaneTrollLogic reasoning that she knew her double's moves and thus had the advantage]]. Both Leelas perform a jump kick and end up running into each other full speed.
