** Vegeta also gets a hole blasted in his chest by Krillin in a gamble to get Denda to heal him so he'll become strong enough to beat Frieza. He is literally seen walking with a hole where his spine should be.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'', General Skarr is shown to have acquired a hole in his torso that he [[NoodleIncident doesn't remember getting]], which seems to disappear partway during his escape from the Grim Reaper. After escaping, he ponders one of the buttons on his car, which blasts a laser from the steering wheel, bringing the hole back.

This trope works for- or against- either MadeOfIron or MadeOfPlasticine, DependingOnTheWriter. Similar to a bigger version of InvisibleHoles. Sometimes paired with MadeOfExplodium for [[RuleOfCool whatever reason]], and frequently caused by ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice or an ImpactSilhouette.

ImpactSilhouette. Often you can expect the interior surface of the hole to be MadeOfBologna.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' is the king of this trope. Most of the villain characters have holes going clear through very important parts of their body. Justified in that Hollows and Arrancar are spiritual beings without actual physical form, so theoretically the laws of biology don't apply (although many apparently still do). Most have one through the middle of their chests where the heart is, because the process of Hollowfication transforms the heart into a Hollow's mask. Even when Arrancarisation shatters most of the mask, the hole does not reform.
** Luppi has a Hollow hole somewhere, though it is never revealed. It definitely is not in the spot where Grimmjow shoves his hand clear through Luppi's stomach, giving him a second and decidedly more painful hole.
** Aaroniero's Hollow hole is located on his left thigh. Pretty important bone right there, probably some major veins as well. Has no problems.
** Grimmjow in particular has one taking up most of the space between his ribcage and his pelvis.
** Nnoitra has a hole through his ''brain''. The difference between a Hollow hole and a regular hole is emphasized when Kenpachi stabs through Nnoitra's eyepatch, leading to the reveal of his Hollow hole and causing Nnoitra to comment something along the lines of, "you're right, no-one could survive a stab to the head. But your sword didn't stab me, it passed right through!"
** Ulquiorra's hole is an interesting case, as it starts in his neck before migrating down over the course of the story. His usage of the trope is mildly lampshaded in the story as Ulquiorra tends to punch a hole in his enemies exactly where his own hollow hole is located (and when he does it to Ichigo, Ichigo almost dies).
** When Ulquiorra blasts a hole through Ichigo's chest with a point-blank cero, the anime has a nice slow pan across the area so you can see the landscape through it.
** Played two different ways with Aizen. During his and Ichigo's final battle, Aizen has three (presumably Hollow) holes in his torso. He's no more affected by these than any other Hollow, but his body slumps over earlier on when [[spoiler:Gin]]'s poison eats a hole out of the majority of his torso.
** One of the most stretching moments has Byakuya Kuchiki blowing a baseball-sized hole clean through Tsukishima's chest and back, (which had to take segments of his spine, lungs, and heart, etc.), and outside of his Fullbring, Tsukishima is a normal human. Rather than it being an insta-kill, Tsukishima's co-conspirator points out that he'll die in "ten minutes",[[labelnote:*]]somehow sensing him from ''a different [[AlternateDimension pocket dimension]]'',[[/labelnote]] during which he's '''still''' able to get up, try to sneak attack Ichigo, and afterward endure a massive VillainousBreakdown. [[spoiler: Later chapters reveal that he did indeed die from the wound, but you gotta give him credit]].
** White is a notable aversion, whose Hollow hole has been filled with a veiny substance. However, [[spoiler: Masaki]] starts growing one when she inadvertently [[spoiler:assimilates him]].
** Rose gets a star-shaped one courtesy of Mask de Masculine's Star Flash attack.
** [[spoiler:Komamura]] gets one of these when he [[spoiler:cuts out his heart]] to gain a more powerful human form. It's only visible when an attack scorches the skin off his chest, however.
** Nimaiya gets this courtesy of [[spoiler:Lille Barro shooting him in the chest.]]
** [[spoiler: Izuru Kira]] takes the cake with his reintroduction to the series. Subverted in that his hole is reinforced.
