A common form of punishment in animated shows that involves stretching a character's face on either side. Generally done to imitate a smile (usually to the ComicallySerious member of the cast for maximum humiliation) done out of frustration by one character towards another, or as a form of restraint. Optional "Gwwwommm" sound effect, and while not always done to the RubberMan, the general idea is the same.

* Happens many, many times in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima''. Usually Asuna to Negi, or Kotaro and Ayaka to each other.
** We should also bring up the time when Chachamaru uses this to ''cancel Negi's spellcasting''.
* As Monkey D. Luffy of ''OnePiece'' actually is a RubberMan, it's no surprise that this happens to him a lot. This is actually how he demonstrates it most of the time, including the first time it comes up.
-->'''Nami:''' "Rubber man"?
-->'''Luffy:''' ''(pulls his cheek out about a foot)'' Yeah, see?
