* Happens between Kid Muscle and his opponent Pumpinator in an episode of ''[[Anime/KinnikumanNisei Ultimate Muscle]]''. At the beginning of the match, Kid tries some kicks that served him well in his previous fight, but they bounce right off Pumpinator harmlessly. It turns out that because Pumpinator is a [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext humanoid athletic shoe]], he's extremely resistant to wear and tear, to the point of being nearly invulnerable to striking. Kid figures a way around this by applying a series of submission holds.

** 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.

And if you take out a lieutenant before the rest of the thugs, [[SoMuchForStealth it makes so much noise that your position is immediately blown]].

** Though it's reversed at least twice by the same Asian GiantMook who can take Baracus's punch in the face without flinching.

* Done in ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' (Kai!) when Okonagi punches Akasaka in the chest; he's feeling smug until Akasaka mutters, [[PreAssKickingOneLiner "Weak"]]. [[CrowningMomentofAwesome Guess what happens next]]. It's actually different than some people might expect -- [[spoiler:Akasaka says "You call that a punch? Lemme show you a real punch...", Okonagi backs up to his car clearly afraid, Akasaka ''punches through the bulletproof windshield'', and Okonagi faints from the attack ''barely missing his face'']]. And then the TrueCompanions come out to celebrate their victory for the day!

* In ''[[Creator/HarryTurtledove Hitler's War]]'', a character punches a bartender with "a blow that would have dented a Panzer". The bartender barely feels it, and punches back. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Cue stunned reactions.]]

* Some bad guys try to beat up Niobe's bonny husband in ''[[IncarnationsOfImmortality With A Tangled Skein]]'', because they want to rape her. Then they comment that it's like punching rock. Then he schools them.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/RelicHunter'': In "The Emperor's Bride", Sydney disarms the woman who is holding her at gunpoint. The woman (who is quite the Amazon) then casually grabs her wrist. Sydney then throws several punches with her free hand which have no effect (except for gradually irritating her captor).

* Krusha in ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' laughs off almost any attack (every attack aside from barrels if he's [[PaletteSwap gray]]. Kruncha from the second game responds to being jumped on or spun into by roaring, [[TurnsRed turning red]], moving faster, and killing your character just from touching him.

* 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.

* Wolverine/Logan falls afoul of this trope a few times in the ''Film/XMen'' film series:
** In a deleted scene from ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'', he fights Juggernaut for the first time and actually drives his claws ''through'' Juggernaut's arm. Juggie doesn't even flinch, triggering an immediate OhCrap moment from Logan--that he lampshades after Juggernaut curb-stomps him.
*** Later in the film, Logan fights a mutant who can regenerate lost body parts. After a couple of unsuccessful attempts with his claws, Logan decides to TakeAThirdOption and goes for a more traditional [[GroinAttack weak spot]].
** ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'' has Logan go mano-a-mano against Fred Dukes a.k.a. The Blob without using his claws to get information from him. Logan's glove-clad punches prove rather ineffective.

** ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': Quicksilver uses his SuperSpeed against Apocalypse, and the former gets in some good hits before the latter compensates for Peter's ability, which leaves the speedster helpless. Xavier, who had generated a psychic connection between himself and Maximoff, copies the young mutant's idea and initiates a BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind against Apocalypse on his own terms. Professor X also delivers several punches before Apocalypse gets around Charles' telepathy as well.
