* 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.

Rapid-fire fisticuffs are a staple maneuver by nearly every comic book speedster ever published. It is often combined with a FlashStep for extra effectiveness against a single foe, or for taking on crowds, resulting in TeleportSpam or SpeedBlitz.

** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'', the monk job has the 2h (two hour, an ability which can [[TooAwesomeToUse only be used every two hours]]) 'hundred fists', which eliminates combat delay, and results in punches being thrown non-stop. This is occasionally combined with the AwesomeButImpractical ability Souleater, which consumes your own health to deal high damage to the enemy (this combination practically always kills the user), and the LethalJokeItem Kraken club, which can attack multiple times per round by itself..

to:

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'': Anima's Overdrive, Oblivion, has this before a giant magical blast to finish; in the original and NA versions, the move hits for massive damage after the whole animation has finished. In the PAL and International versions, every punch hits instead.

** [[BareFistedMonk Pugilists and Monks]] in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' have a mechanic that is meant to simulate this. Whenever they finish their combos in the right order they gain a StatusBuff called "Greased Lightning", which increases both the damage they deal and their attack speed by 10%. Once you hit a high enough level this buff will stack three times, which means that there is generally less then a second between each of a monks attacks.

** Oddly enough, the "fist spamming" was also used several times by other fighters without ever being called this, although at least Raoh had also practiced the same style as Kenshiro. Moreover, Kenshiro's technique that dealt the final blows to the about-to-be-defeated [[spoiler:Souther]] is (superficially) identical.
