* Done quite a few times in ''Manga/OnePiece'' most notably in the "Arlong Arc"'. After forcing Fishman Karate expert Kuroobi to the surface, Sanji angrily declares that he will beat the living daylights out of him. Kuroobi laughs the remark off and begins to list why he is a superior fighter but is immediately kicked in the neck by Sanji. [[HumiliationConga And then pummeled everywhere else. And then kicked "through" a building.]]

* This once happened [[BloodOnTheDebateFloor on the floor of the]] [[UsefulNotes/TheEuropeanUnion European Parliament]]. During a visit by [[UsefulNotes/ThePope Pope John Paul II]] to the EP, [[UsefulNotes/NorthernIreland Northern Irish]] [[UsefulNotes/TheTroubles ultra-Loyalist]] MEP and hard-right Presbyterian minister Rev. Ian Paisley started angrily denouncing him as TheAntichrist. Conservative German MEP Otto von Habsburg, as a very devout Catholic (his father was [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_I_of_Austria the literally saintly last Emperor of Austria Hungary]] and his ancestors were the [[HolyRomanEmpire Holy Roman Emperors]], for heaven's sake!) took exception. With his fist.

* Ex-Apollo Astronaut Buzz Aldrin was once harangued by a conspiracy theorist who vehemently argued that the moon landing was a hoax, in front of his stepdaughter. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wptn5RE2I-k His response was to interrupt the conspiracy theorist with a punch to the face.]] A judge let Aldrin off, ruling that the conspiracy theorist was practically assaulting Aldrin, and Aldrin had every right to make him Talk to the Fist.

* ''Webcomic/ExistentialComics'': Captain Metaphysics "refutes" Pyrrho's skepticism by punching him, while the hover over text lists a number of ideas this works on. He uses this for every problem which is brought up, and also threatens anyone who disagrees with his "solution" this way.

* In ''AsurasWrath'', this is combined with the act of skipping a cutscene where at certain points when bosses start talking, pressing a button would have Asura try to shut them up forcefully. The [[BraggingRightsReward Trophy/Achievement]] names follow the template of "[[ShutUpHannibal Shut Up, Name!]]" OneOfUs on the localization team, mayhaps?

Due to the springs covering his body, he just bounces right back up, so she decks him again. [[OverlyLongGag Rinse and repeat.]]

* Creator/JeremyClarkson, presenter of ''Series/TopGear'', was accused of adultery on the front page of a tabloid newspaper. Discovering the editor of the [[BritishNewspapers Daily Mirror]] - one [[CountryMatters Piers Morgan]] - sitting in an upmarket restaurant with ''his'' extra-marital affair, Clarkson addressed the double standard involved here by punching Morgan across the diner. Whilst public opinion in this case was supportive of Clarkson, on the grounds the man he had chinned was Piers Morgan, a later punch by Clarkson had far less of a happy result.

** A little bit later, Recoome's teammate Jeice is talking trash at Goku and ends with "Make your move!" Goku socks him in the nose, and while he's still reeling and screaming in pain, Goku says "You ''said'' to make a move. I thought you meant that you were ready to go at it."
