* ''WesternAnimation/SwatKats'':
** In "Enter the Madkat", Razor and Commander Feral of all people (!) dual punch Lenny Ringtail this way after he's been returned to normal.
** A fatal version happens to a guard in "Katastrophe". Dr. Viper's mushroom monster assistant reaches towards the viewer with one of his tentacles to convey his grabbing (and killing) the guard [[KilledOffscreen offscreen]].
** In "SWAT Kats Unplugged", Razor flying down and kicking Hard Drive in the face is conveyed this way, with Razor's feet whooshing in towards the viewer. One cut later, and he's standing atop Hard Drive's unconscious body holding the anti-weapon scrambler.
** Done to a Puma-Dyne guard in "The Dark Side of the SWAT Kats". This one is interesting in that the hand Evil!T-Bone punches him with is the one wearing his Glovatrix, and the evil SWAT Kats' Glovatrixes have [[SpikesOfVillainy spiked knuckles]]. This should've ended up being one of the show's more violent and painful knockouts, even ''with'' it being shown entirely from the victim''s P.O.V., but to tone it down, the spikes were removed for this one shot, and when the guard is shown later, he has no facial injuries consistent with getting spiked knuckles to the face.
