* In ''Film/BeautyAndTheBeast2017'', Gaston punches Maurice out and leaves him for the wolves in the forest. Maurice stays unconscious until the next morning, but is ultimately no worse for wear. In all fairness, though, he wakes up disoriented and groggy, and doesn't fully recover until after hermit-woman Agathe takes him to her dwelling and gives him a healing potion. Since [[spoiler: Agathe is really the Enchantress]], we can assume that [[AWizardDidIt her potion had the power to cure brain damage.]]

** ''Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods'' shows that this applies to gods as well as mortals, with Whis using the chop-to-the-neck version to knock Beerus out. In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' his sister Vados does the same to Beerus's brother Champa.

* ''SixBridesForTwoSisters'' has Rarity blocking Twilight from teleporting herself and other ponies away from an awkward social situation. When the guards come by, Twilight asks Applejack to do this (Twilight had mentioned earlier that if she were to just plow through the block, she might kill Rarity from the backlash), her waning sanity putting faith in this trope. Applejack disagrees. 'One, what Ah’m trying to say is that if I kick Rarity in the head hard enough to knock her out, Ah’m liable to cave her skull in, or break her neck, or somethin’.'
