* Subverted in ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}''. Ruby gets grabbed like this, but shrugs it off. She still gets captured, mind you...but she at least puts up a fight. It's not her fault that she's only 15 and the guard is therefore able to NoSell her punch before PistolWhipping her into submission.

** Subverted again much later with her sister Yang. Mercury, one of the bad guy's minions, tries to grab her arm as she passes... her cybernetic arm, which she simply detaches without missing a beat.

** In "Bliss", Chakotay grabs Seven this way, but it's a sign he's NotHimself as he'd never manhandle a female crewmember. Seven plays along only because he has two armed security officers with him, and she needs to get them to let their guard down.

* A blink and you'll miss it example in ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod'' during the fight between [[BadassPrincess Androssi]] and [[FieryRedhead Quant]]: in one panel, Quant manages to catch Androssi's arm, and tries to hit her. It takes [[TheHero Baam]] and his newly acquired [[TheParalyzer freezing technique]] to intervene and get Androssi out of this situation. Why Androssi didn't just swing her CoolSword that she held in her free hand at Quants neck is unclear, but the surprise effect or the fact that you need to land really strong attacks on Quant to even scratch him (even the SwordBeam wasn't enough to do that) might have played into that.

* Averted in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''. A smitten suitor grabs [[PirateGirl Asha Greyjoy]] this way; she draws a dagger and makes it clear he's never to touch her without permission. During a BarBrawl a squire does the same to [[BadassPrincess Arya Stark]]; he's also holding a sword, so with both hands occupied there's nothing to stop Arya grabbing the dagger on the squire's belt and burying it in his belly. It is however played straight, but in a GenderInvertedTrope, when RoyalBrat PuppetKing Joffrey is hauled off to bed this way after annoying his DragonInChief Lord Tywin Lannister.

* Reference in ''ShootingStars'' in a segment parodying ''Series/TheATeam'' - "Look, it's a woman being pushed and pulled about a bit by some communists!" (Two Fidel Castro lookalikes each holding on to the Standard Female Grab Area and pointlessly pushing her back and forth)
* Inverted in an episode of Series/{{iCarly}}, where Sam incapacitates a [[GirlsHaveCooties girl-hating]] [[{{Nerd}} model train club member]] by squeezing his wrist.

* ''TheBouncer'' features a kidnapping in the opening cutscene where the kidnapped girl, while trying to escape, is stunned so much by being grabbed on the upper arm that he can put her in a headlock easily.

* Used in ''ProfessorLaytonAndTheUnwoundFuture'', when [[spoiler:the BigBad kidnaps Flora, Layton's ward, by dragging her out of a restaurant by one arm]]. Flora is a sweet little girl and can't do much to defend herself anyway.

** Later on, Jessica's threat turns out to be all for naught since when they're brought in for questioning by the police, she lets Matt grip her elbow and allow her to guide him.
