* An interesting version of this happens in the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' series. Characters can grab each other, and, if someone grabs a male fighter, it'll be by the chest's clothes, or in the case of fighters that don't wear clothes... by grabbing their skin directly, supposedly. However, if one grabs one of the female characters (excluding Jigglypuff), it'll be by the arm. Of course, grabbing by the chest would lead to some UnfortunateImplications. This is, however, subverted by both the Miis and Mega Man. All Miis, even males, are grabbed in this area, and Mega Man uses the Super Arm for his grab, holding them up by the rear (Though never in the case of females) or back instead.

* Subverted in the WhateleyUniverse. In the second Boston Brawl, Generator (who looks like a ten year old girl) is grabbed as a hostage by Ironhawk (mutant in power armor). She slaps something on his armor, takes over his control system, and uses him as a missile for the rest of the battle.

** In ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'', this is how Chi Fu forcibly drags Mulan out of the medical tent [[spoiler: after her real gender is found out]]. While Chi Fu is the weakest person in the group and Mulan could've easily fought him off, she probably also realized that any attempt at fighting back [[spoiler: probably would've gotten her executed sooner, Shang's ultimate act of mercy notwithstanding]].

While Chi Fu is Despite her established badassed-ness, it's justified because she was still recuperating from a cut across her stomach and the attendant blood loss and probably wasn't in any shape to fight back, even if she was being manhandled by the weakest person man in the group and Mulan could've easily fought him off, she probably also realized that any attempt at fighting back [[spoiler: probably would've gotten her executed sooner, Shang's ultimate act of mercy notwithstanding]].group.

** The manga adaptation partly subverts this with Kairi ''[[CombatPragmatist biting Axel in the arm]]'' to escape, but by that point, they were no longer in Twilight Town.

* Justified in ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe2'' when agent Lucy Wilde is grabbed in this way due to her being in the middle of a party, with several civilians (mostly children) around, so Lucy, being a trained secret agent, probably wanted to avoid collateral damage from fighting back.

Agent Lucy Wilde (who can actually fight) is grabbed in this way due to her being way, in the middle of a party, with several civilians (mostly children) around, so Lucy, party chock full of civilians, mostly kids. And the guy who grabbed her is known for being a trained secret agent, probably wanted to avoid strong. She's even shown looking around at all the people who could potentially be collateral damage from fighting back.damage.



* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', if you grab Lieutenant Murphy, prepare to have the crap beaten out of you. Unless she's pretending and you are stupid enough to believe it.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' episode "Haunted," when Robin is hallucinating visions of Slade, he grabs Starfire here angrily, and she exclaims that he's hurting her, despite the fact she seems to possess at least a degree of NighInvulnerability, and he has no superstrength to speak of. Fan consensus is that she was more emotionally hurt by her good friend grabbing her then any actual physical force. This makes sense when you consider that Starfire's powers are based on her emotions; thus her emotional distress can cause her invulnerability to weaken, allowing Robin (a CharlesAtlasSuperpower level martial artist) to physically harm her.
