* Children in the USA play a game called "bloody knuckles", where they punch each other in their fists. The loser is the first one to get bloody knuckles.

* Children in the USA play a game called "bloody knuckles", where they punch each other in their fists. The loser is the first one to get bloody knuckles. The lighter version is "whoever gives up first". It's a lot harder to play when you play with a kid with little muscle on his/her knuckles as while there's less skin and muscle protecting it there's a lot more bone to strike with.

* ''Anime/GundamBuildFighters'' does this quite a few times:
** The battle between Nils and Sei/Reiji, since due to CombatBreakdown they've been reduced to supercharged punch attacks. It's every bit as awesome as it sounds.
** Again, due to combat breakdown, the battle between Fellini and Sei/Reiji ends with a DoubleKnockout and both the Wing Fenice and the Star Build Strike disabled. If anything, this entire battle is even more awesome than the one against Nils.
** Happens ''again'' '''twice''' in the bonus OVA "GM's Counterattack,'' first with the Star Burning Gundam going fist to fist with the [[spoiler:Psyco GM]], then again at the end of the episode when [[spoiler:Reiji takes control of the Star Burning to battle Sei in his Build Strike Cosmos, giving them the fight they'd promised each other]].

* In season 3 of ''WebAnimation/RWBY'' Arslan Altan and Yang Xiao Long do this during the Vytal Festival Tournament. {{Justified}} since any damage they would have taken would have simply affected their [[SoulPower Aura]] instead of their hands.

* The ''WebAnimation/DeathBattle'' match between [[Franchise/StreetFighter Balrog]] and [[VideoGame/KillerInstinct TJ Combo]] has the two engaging in several such exchanges during their boxing-turned-deathmatch. Being [[SuperStrength who]] [[SuperToughness they]] [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower are]], their blows start ''breaking the stage under their feet''.

* Parrying is a gameplay mechanic in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIII''. Only some of them are Punch Parries though, others are more sensible parries, and a couple are {{No Sell}}s.

**When Luffy confronts a mirrored version of him in Whole Cake Island, their entire fight consists of this as the mirror duplicate always perfectly reflects Luffy's moves.

* 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.

* 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.
