* In the ''Comicbook/{{Superman}} vs. Comicbook/{{Spider-Man}}'' Special, Lex Luthor secretly energizes Spidey for the inevitable first meeting fight. After a few good licks, the energy wears off, and Spidey experiences this trope.

* Subverted in ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'': Near the end of the third season finale [[spoiler: when Matrix (Enzo) returns to Mainframe to free the system from Megabyte.]] After mocking the sprite and challanging him to "fight like a real sprite", Megabyte gives Matrix one free punch. Matrix sends the virus flying, and is suitably astonished at the dent in his chest. Earlier played straight, when [[spoiler: Bob tried to stall Gigabyte while Mainframe shut down.]] It didn't work out too well.

* A variation occurs in ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice''. Batman's punches are clearly hurting Superman until the kryptonite gas wears off and Superman clearly takes less damage with each punch, culminating in [[NoSell completely ignoring the last one]].

* ''Videogame/BatmanArkhamCity'' invokes this trope with the lieutenants. If you're not careful to flip over their heads after getting in your half-dozen ineffectual punches, they'll smack you down with one hit.

to:

* The Arkham Series has "Beatdowns", a move in which Batman (Or anybody else) confuses an enemy with his cape (or with something similar), and then proceeds to punch them in this fashion. The move has been part of the series from Arkham City onwards.

''Videogame/BatmanArkhamCity'' invokes this trope with the lieutenants. If you're not careful to flip over their heads after getting in your half-dozen ineffectual punches, they'll smack you down with one hit. There are also enemies wearing body armor, which require either a beatdown, a special move or a ground takedown to go down.
** Body armor enemies return in ''Videogame/BatmanArkhamOrigins'', and there are enemies similar to lieutenants. In the ending, Batman unleashes three beatdowns to [[spoiler: Joker]] in the Blackgate prison chapel.
** In ''Videogame/BatmanArkhamKnight'' the armored henchmen and lieutenants are combined, and the end result is a larger-than-average thug with very fast reflexes, very high damage, and they need to be taken down with either an beatdown or a special move (Militia variants require two). In predator, they carry miniguns, and need either a very long beatdown to go down, or have to be tricked to activate an instant K.O trap. In addition, fear takedowns don't work on them in either scenario.

* ''[[Literature/TheChroniclesOfThomasCovenant White Gold Wielder]]'' has Thomas call forth a Sandgorgon, previously noted for unending, inhuman aggressiveness and unrelenting power, to breach the centuries-reinforced gates of Revelstone. This is played straight right up to a sharp aversion when it turns out the Sandgorgon's blows are building resonant force within the gates until they tear themselves asunder in what could only be termed an explosion.

* HulkHogan made himself rich off this routine. The most common way, of course, was after he kicked out of an opponent's pinfall attempt after hitting his finisher; his opponent would land several punches but Hogan would blow them off, before the heel would try to beg for mercy and throw another punch (which would invariably be blocked and lead to Hogan's [[FiveMovesOfDoom finishing sequence]], or try an illegal tactic ... which would be foiled or also have no effect (and the heel begging off) and Hogan then going into his finishing routine.
** On occassion, when the storyline dictated this, Hogan was on the reverse end of this, especially when a fearsome new heel wrestler was debuting and challenging Hogan in their first televised confrontation. This formula used with Zeus (to capitalize on the then-new ''No Holds Barred'' movie starring Hogan and Tiny Lister) and Wrestling/TheUndertaker saw Hogan would try to land a few punches to make the new heel go away, but the heel would be the one who would smile and Hogan would sell concern and fear ... just before he got his kicked. (All, of course, to sell tickets to future matches.)

* Part of {{Harry Houdini}}'s stage act, but eventually led to his appendix bursting and his death. Though it's a bit more complicated: Houdini was already in the early stages of appendicitis when he took the blow. He simply chalked the pain in his abdomen up to getting punched (without having adequate time to prepare for the blow) and didn't seek medical attention until it was too late.
