* Averted in the French gamebook series ''Literature/PresterJohnSaga'': in book 3 a Kobold tries to knock you senseless with a punch to the face... but you're wearing a steel helmet so he's left yelling in pain. In book 4, if you open a certain door you're asked if you're wearing an helmet or not. If you don't, the following blow to the head kills you istantly. If you do... [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption the following blow to the head stuns you, allowing the rogue inside the house to finish you off with a knife.]]

* ''{{ComicBook/Murena}}'': Averted when Lucius is knocked out during a fight with a thug. Not only does he stay down, the treatment used to bring him back seriously messes with his memories (he also gets used as a living dildo by the woman who recued him, but even that doesn't wake him up).

* 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.]]
