* The specific case of "Knock your socks off" (encompassed in this trope) was tested by Series/MythBusters. Their conclusion: Busted. The kinetic energy from a ''battering ram'', let alone a punch, could not knock the socks off of Buster by pure force alone. The team WAS able to remove socks off of dummy legs with a shockwave generated by high explosives, but the explosion would be fatal even at the maximum distance required for them to be blown off.
** Note that one shot of the vertical pneumatic cannon did knock his shoes off and the shoes pulled the socks halfway off. Unfortunately the socks were not completely off and the cannon was far stronger than any boxer.
** In a revisit of the myth, the team even redid the same tests, including a new set of tests using the best set of variables possible (smooth, shaven legs wearing loose-fitting woolen socks) to see whether they would get knocked off and were still unsuccessful with the original tests. ''However,'' while they ultimately ''were'' able to knock the socks off Buster (as well as his ''hands'' and his ''entire left leg''), it required hitting him with a vehicle-mounted battering ram at 65 MPH, roughly 10,000 times the kinetic force of a human boxer.

* The first opening for ''Anime/LupinIIIRedJacket'' features the main character leaping out of his clothes to get into bed with a naked Fujiko. Fujiko...who promptly smacks him in the face with a spring-loaded punching glove hidden in a box under the covers.
** In the anime itself, any of Lupin's attempts to bed Fujiko begin and end similarly.

* The ''WesternAnimation/TheAngryBeavers'' episode "A Dam Too Far" opens with Norbert and Daggett being drafted by the military to dam two rivers raging out of control. While being briefed by [[TheFaceless a faceless general]] in an airplane high above the ground, both are wearing full military uniforms. After the briefing, the general sends them on their way by pulling a TrapDoor, sending both groundward. The military gag completed, the two beavers are yanked from their army uniforms by the force of gravity, and both fall out of the plane without.

This can also be ''self'' inflicted by the effects of a PainPoweredLeap, {{Wild Take}}s, a SlipperySkid, or other equally acrobatic clumsiness. Off Like a Shot, can can leave a character's own clothes behind, if the character dashes off fast enough.

* The 1935 Disney Silly Symphony ''Disney/TheTortoiseAndTheHare'' uses variants of this several times as the lighting fast rabbit zips past spectators...a smartly dressed owl and stork lose their snappy outfits AND feathers; a tree is stripped of its leaves in what passes for arboreal nudity.
