* In Creator/JeanClaudeVanDamme film ''Film/{{Cyborg}}'', Van Damme's FauxActionGirl sidekick gets knocked out 3 or 4 times in the movie. Van Damme's character gets KO'd once or twice as well. No one seems to have any problems because of it.

* TheHardyBoys: Frank & Joe Hardy have both been knocked out by getting hit in the head so often that, in real life, the two should be vegetables in permanent coma in the hospital.
* In MichaelFlynn's ''[[Literature/SpiralArm The January Dancer]]'', [[spoiler:the Fudir]] uses this on [[spoiler:Hugh]] to evade him. He does think that it's a tricky business, but it's treated as if it were really harmless.

* Both played straight and averted on ''Series/GameOfThrones''. In the first season, Tyrion is leading men into battle when he accidentally catches a warhammer to the head, and doesn't regain consciousness until well after the battle when he's being hauled around on a cart. However in the third season, it's played realistically, where a man who's clubbed unconscious wakes up after less than a minute. [[spoiler:(Only to be clubbed again.)]]

* Almost no episode of ''Literature/ButlerParker'' passed without several of these. Delivered by umbrella (the handle being filled with lead), bowler hat (steel-lined), horseshoe (in a lady's pompadour'), flower vase - the opponets often using guns or coshes...

Added DiffLines:

* The ''The McGurk Mysteries'' book ''The Vanishing Ventriloquist'' has both the traditional ChokeHold (which is not being done properly, which means McGurk, the victim, is only stunned and remains conscious throughout, and is used as a means to threaten to snap McGurk's neck if the cops and other detectives don't back down) and a second variant where the titular ventriloquist kicks someone in the head with both feet, which knocks him silly and ultimately causes him to pass out (this is mentioned to be something that she wasn't sure she could do properly).

* Averted in one of the ''[[Literature/HoratioHornblower Mr. Midshipman Hornblower]]'' stories. Hornblower strikes a man with the rudder because he's having a loud epileptic fit during a stealth expedition. Hornblower is pretty sure that he's killed him by doing this (although the boat is lost, so we never find out for sure). The TV adaptation uses this scene, but winds up playing it straight.

Other instances of this, such as when he and his men sandbag dockside sentries in ''Hotspur'', likewise imply strongly that they're fatal blows.
