** Meowth tries to exploit this against Pikachu in an ''XY'' episode, issuing one as a rouse to trap the latter in a Pokeball. Pikachu dodges however, forcing him to quickly play it proper. Surprisingly, Meowth's Fury Swipes actually hurts Pikachu, but his Iron Tail knocks Meowth out flat.

* The first trailer for ''NoMoreHeroes'' features Travis and Helter Skelter in a Single Stroke Battle. Travis wins, and Helter either collapses, or has his head removed, depending on the trailer version. "Your shining armor and fine words won't get you anywhere!"

* In ''Literature/SonOfTheBlackSword'' by Creator/LarryCorreia, Ashok is repeatedly challenged to duels from his jail cell by warriors who want his [[CoolSword ancestor blade]]. The prison guards have started putting bets on how long various challengers will last; their commander witnesses one challenger start off by [[TrashTalk insulting Ashok, the Law, and the Protectors]], and bets that it'll last ten seconds or less. There is then a GilliganCut to him collecting his winnings, and the later reveal that Ashok won by [[TongueTrauma smiting out his opponent's tongue with a single blow.]]

* A version of this appears in ''{{Soul|Series}}calibur III'', just before the penultimate battle in story mode (regardless of which character is played or the story path). Siegfried and Nightmare square off in the cutscene, swing their swords simultaneously, there's a one-second beat, then one of them falls over. Which one survives to fight the player depends on which character you are playing at the time: good characters fight Nightmare, evil ones fight Siegfried. If you have chosen either of those characters, you simply fight the other.

* In the ''SamuraiShodown'' games, the player has the ability to break their POW gauge in order to allow an Issen attack, which effectively describes this trope, but it's generally seen as a cheap attack. Issen will do more damage to the enemy the less damage your character has, and will do almost a 3/4 of the maximum health when only a sliver of health is left for your character. If both characters use Issen, the battle will usually end in a draw.
