A technique common to animation, video games, and comic books, rapid-fire fisticuffs is the act of punching an opponent dozens (if not hundreds, if not thousands) of times a second. Multiple hits are guaranteed, and even if each strike doesn't cause much damage by itself, the cumulative effect can be absolutely brutal. If you use one of these attacks in a fighting game, you can almost expect that this move's command will involve tapping your Attack button rapidly.

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, the result is a PummelDuel.

* ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha''
** In ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid'', Vivio immediately forces her first opponent in the TournamentArc on to the defensive by employing a one-handed version of this trope. Her opponent eventually tried to evade it by attacking from above, earning her a solid roundhouse kick into the face.
** ''Anime/VividStrike'' has Vivio using this as her main fighting style, delivering several flickering jabs at her opponent whenever they leave an opening. This eventually leads to the introduction of Accel Smash Infinity, a FinishingMove where Vivio uses [[ElementalPunch magically-enhanced punches]] to repeatedly strike her opponent [[AttackItsWeakPoint at their vitals]] in quick succession until they fall unconscious.
