* 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.

* ''Series/TheDefenders2017'': Played for laughs. Matt grabs Jessica this way once, and it only works because she's just shocked he actually did it, since she has SuperStrength and he's a HandicappedBadass.
--->'''Jessica''': Grab me like that again, I'll punch you so hard you'll see.

* ''Series/TheDefenders2017'': Played for laughs. ''Series/Daredevil2015'': Since Matt Murdock is blind, he'll grasp a sighted person's arm by the elbow and let them guide him, such as with the real estate agent showing him and Foggy around the future space for Nelson & Murdock.
**PlayedForLaughs in ''Series/TheDefenders2017'' when Matt roughly
grabs Jessica this way once, Series/JessicaJones2015 by the arm upon her entry into Midland Circle and drags her aside to try and warn her into leaving the place, since it's a trap set by the Hand, and it only works because she's just shocked he actually did it, since she has SuperStrength and he's a HandicappedBadass.
--->'''Jessica''': Grab
[[HandicappedBadass blind-but-maybe-not lawyer]].
-->'''Jessica Jones:''' Murdock! What-
-->'''Matt Murdock:''' You need to leave, ''now''.
-->'''Jessica Jones:''' If you grab
me like that again, I'll punch you so hard you'll see.
[[/folder]]
-->'''Matt Murdock:''' Listen, I've been here before-
-->'''Jessica Jones:''' Why are you following me?
-->'''Matt Murdock:''' And you're in serious danger.
-->'''Jessica Jones:''' ''[scoffs]'' What kind of lawyer are you?
-->'''Matt Murdock:''' This case you took, it's leading you towards something truly sinister.
-->'''Jessica Jones:''' Okay, you are the most full-of-shit lawyer I've ever met, and I think we should stop and appreciate the magnitude of that statement.
-->'''Matt Murdock:''' Let's talk about this somewhere else-
-->'''Jessica Jones:''' Let's talk about it, never. ''[beat]'' Unless you want to tell me how a blind man moves the way you do.
-->'''Matt Murdock:''' ''[suddenly confused]'' [[FlatWhat Excuse me?]]
-->'''Jessica Jones:''' I have pictures, asshole. ''[Without missing a beat, Matt abruptly grabs Jessica's camera and smashes it]''
**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.

* ''Literature/TortallUniverse''
** In ''Literature/SongOfTheLioness'', where the slender 5'4" Alanna is [[WeakButSkilled skilled]] and [[FragileSpeedster fast]], and rendered helpless once her arms are pinned by a larger man. When she realizes this weakness, she decides to learn hand-to-hand combat from the local ArrogantKungFuGuy so she doesn't get trapped again.
** But it's defied with a vengeance in the third ''Literature/ProtectorOfTheSmall'' book when Raoul's standard-bearer tries to intimidate Squire Keladry this way--by this point, she's so built that all she has to do is ''flex her bicep'' and his hand pops off.

*** Additionally, it does not seem that at that time the female is incapacitated, but rather is simply refraining from fighting an ally while demanding to be released so she can finish [[spoiler: committing suicide]].

* ''Series/BlakesSeven''. In "Moloch", two mooks grab [[BigBad Servalan]] by the arms so she can be hauled off to be gang-raped. Servalan contemptuously pulls her arms free, utters a blatant death threat, then calmly strides off to her fate. She escapes of course, racking up quite a bodycount in the process.
