** Luffy does this a lot. Perhaps the best ones, however, are his one-hit KO of Bellamy the Hyena and punching the Celestial Dragon Saint Charlos, both times leaving a marred knuckle imprint. [[BerserkButton Both deserved it.]]
** [[spoiler: Bellamy gets this once again, but for a [[DontYouDarePityMe different]] [[DeathSeeker reason]] during the Dressrosa Arc.]]
** [[spoiler:Speaking of Dressrosa, Luffy demonstrates Gear Fourth by decking Doflamingo hard enough to send him to the town center. The actual punch happened in a castle ''outside the town entirely'']].

* ''{{Toriko}}'' loves this trope. Over the course of the series, distance gradually increases from punches across the room to punches across the town, to punches across continent - and even this was proven to not be the limit, when titular character punched [[spoiler:[[TheBigBad Acacia]]]] so hard, that he ''[[UptoEleven circled the planet]]''. In fact, [[TheParalyzer Jiro]] sometimes disposes of tough enemies, by simply ''uppercutting them into space''.

%% * ''WesternAnimation/{{Popeye}} the Sailor'', anyone? Popeye did this to Bluto many, many times.
* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'':
** In ''Justice League Unlimited'', taking a punch from one of the more powerful characters easily sent the victim several miles or further (this is probably what is expected, considering some punches are capable of breaking the sound barrier). Best example is when Franchise/{{Superman}} delivers a punch on {{ComicBook/Darkseid}}. This is after Superman gives his WorldOfCardboardSpeech and reveals he's ready to cut loose on the one person in the universe he can hit ''at full power''... To put this in perspective, with ''one punch'', Darkseid was sent sailing through ''seven'' skyscrapers, and ''kept going!'' The only thing that stopped him was Superman giving him a MeteorMove midflight.
** The ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueCrisisOnTwoEarths'' movie has a ''lot'' of collateral damage caused by this kind of thing. It's just as well the building where the League first fought the Crime Syndicate was pretty much condemned anyway, given the amount of it that was reduced to rubble by things like Superman throwing Superwoman through walls.
* {{ComicBook/Darkseid}} himself did this to Superman in the final episode of ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries''.

pretty much all the time after eating spinach.

Franchise/DCAnimatedUniverse:
** ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'': The episode "Love Is A Croc" has Batman punch Killer Croc about a hundred feet across a spacious room at a power plant Superman-style that sent Croc crashing against pipework. The enraged Croc attempts to retaliate by ripping out a piece of pipe, but it was a steaming, hot water pipe, which erputs a near-fatal burst of water that delivers Croc right back to Batman's feet.
** ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'': SelfDemonstrating/{{Lobo}} does this to Superman at one point, and Superman obliges, even sending him flying up to Lex Luthor's tower and crashing in it. {{ComicBook/Darkseid}} himself also does this to Superman.
** ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'': In "Disappearing Inque", [[spoiler:Bruce Wayne]] uses a PoweredArmor to confront Inque and save [=Terry McGinnis=]. At one point he punches Inque with it, sending her fly accross the arena they're in.

* Exaggerated in the FinalBoss of ''MadWorld''--in the last potental power struggle, the last hit sends the boss flying from the ring you're in all the way to the audience stands. A helicopter then picks up the boss from the stands, now dazed, and lets you kill him off for real.

* Practically everyone Creator/BruceLee sparred with regularly said he did this to them. The famous "One-Inch Punch", while not exactly sending someone flying across the room, would knock them back several feet which is an impressive distance when you realize that Bruce Lee's fist quite literally [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin only moved an inch.]] He also had a "Six-Inch Punch" [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pC6vRJsBZEg that could knock a person back about 15 feet.]] That's after being softened by the cushion his demonstration partner held between them, presumably to avoid getting his ribs broken. Bruce's blows could be so strong that stunt men were sometimes wary about working with him for fear that he would seriously injure them ''completely on accident''. For instance, in the famous ''Film/EnterTheDragon'' scene where Bruce kicks O'Hara off his feet and into a crowd of spectators, one of the stunt men was bowled over with such force that he broke his arm.
