* Hitmonchan, a boxing monster from ''{{Pokemon}}''; according to the Pokedex in the original games, when it looks like it's just standing around, it's because its actually throwing ''mind-bogglingly lightning-fast'' volleys of punches (likely represented by Comet Punch).

When a character does this while ''armed'', it is a SpamAttack. This trope is a type of DeathInAllDirections. In trading power per hit for a large hit count, unless you're a LightningBruiser with both to spare, beware PunchPunchPunchUhOh. May result in DeathOfAThousandCuts. If two fighters capable of doing this attempt to outdo one another, the result is a PummelDuel.

* ''VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}'' has [[MightyGlacier Big]] [[MusicalGameplay Band]], can power up two LimitBreak attacks, which end with him beating the sweet baby Jesus out of someone with a [[PowerFist gigantic brass arm]] (as in, made of the musical instruments) in the spirit of this trope. He finishes the beating with a MegatonPunch that will [[PunchedAcrossTheRoom send any character flying and ricocheting off the edge of the screen]]. Most amusingly, he will actually go "TUBATUBATUBATUBA" in a ShoutOut to ''Franchise/JoJosBizarreAdventure''.

* Bullet, ''VideoGame/FreedomForce'''s [[TheFlash Flash]] {{Expy}}, has three melee attacks. The second and third are the same as the first, but are respectively done three and six times in quick succession. [[LightningBruiser It adds up pretty quickly]].

*** Important to note that Ip Man/Donnie Yen never uses it as an entry technique but as a kind of opportunistic battering of an opponent whose guard is already down. Rushing into an opponent's guard with chain-punches is embarrassing at best, suicidal at worst.
** The lead actor in ''Film/IpMan'', Donnie Yen, uses this as a sort of trademark in his movies, especially the ones he gets to choreograph himself. Punch flurries showed up a lot in Flash Point, and his character used palm flurries exclusively in Dragon Tiger Gate.

This is actually TruthInTelevision, as there is a Jeet Kune Do technique called the "Straightblast" which is exactly this. Though it's ''really'' difficult to keep at it for very long. Or with any power whatsoever. So it's best used in short bursts to catch opponents off guard. (For those not in the know, Jeet Kune Do is a Martial Art developed by Bruce Lee. Yes, ''that'' Creator/BruceLee.)

* Scrambler of the ''WhateleyUniverse'' has done this [[IncrediblyLamePun repeatedly]] in her martial arts classes at [[SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy]], but she only has normal strength so it's pretty useless against someone like Phase or Golden Girl.
