* Played for laughs in ''Film/TheReplacements'', in which the title team racks up over fifty yards of Unnecessary Roughness penalties in one play purely to boost their own morale.

* There is one attempt at a subversion during the Death March arc. Sena accidentally enters a tryout session for an American football club. Once he demonstrates his speed and evasion skills, the opposition get obsessed with crushing him, literally. The examiner has to point out that they would get disqualified if they tried to carry out their threats -- not that Sena lets them try.

** The Manchester United - Arsenal fixture got this reputation in the 1990's and 2000's, with one game in particular degenerating into a mass fight. It does seem to have calmed down in the second decade of the new century, though.

* The {{Classic Disney Short|s}} ''WesternAnimation/HockeyHomicide'' features all sorts of comically over-the-top violence at a hockey game, such as the team captains constantly getting sent to the penalty box for fighting and the referee getting run over so many times he resorts to wearing a suit of armor. At the climax the fighting between the players degenerates into [[HockeyFight an all-out brawl among the spectators]], which the players end up sitting back to watch as the cartoon ends.

* ''Literature/TheBlindSide'': The defensive lineman of the [[OpposingSportsTeam Lions]] deliberately kicks Michael when he's down and after the play has already ended, and the referee not only ignores the kick, but penalizes the Wingate Crusaders after [[PapaWolf Coach Cotton complains]].

* The chariot scene in ''Film/BenHur'' is a classic, and often-parodied, example. However, ''there is no law in the arena''. That was the reason for Ben Hur to participate in the race.

* Film/TheLastBoyScout takes UnnecessaryRoughness to its logical extreme (but ultimately a subversion because...well, it should be obvious why) when a football player gets high on PCP and then ''pulls out a gun and shoots 3 opposing players'' to score a touchdown before killing himself.

* While many soccer defenders are known for being aggressive (See [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=52t5ifcmoxM These guys]]. And [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZDCcj0ooJs these ones]]), there's a case from the 1981 UsefulNotes/CopaLibertadores that deserves mention: In the second game of the finals, Mario Soto from Chilean side Cobreloa was able to make two Flamengo players leave the game bleeding (the rest of Cobreloa managed to injure two other players). In the third and last game, with four minutes left and victory already guaranteed to Flamengo, the team's coach Cláudio Coutinho decided to avenge the previous game and put benchwarmer Anselmo in the field, with the sole intention of hitting Soto (who [[http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_xwnFU4zG0QM/TOubLybUKxI/AAAAAAAAB3k/fZuKt5JdUKc/s640/anselmo-soco.jpg promptly got punched in the head]], leading to a fight that got both players expelled).

* Starting in 2008, Wrestling/TheUndertaker modified his triangle choke into a gogoplata, a legitimately dangerous submission maneuver, which caused the victim to cough up blood. Then-GM Wrestling/VickieGuerrero banned the move both for petty reasons as well as the safety of the superstars. Later on, after the ban was lifted, the move was named the "Hell's Gate" and Undertaker routinely uses it to finish matches, though it no longer causes the opponent to cough up blood.

** One of the worse offender is probably Mr. Don, the American best lineman who made a time out to declare to the audience he will kill a linebacker and then proceed to savagely tackle said linebacker. He also try to sack the quaterback out of commission like the other player in the first play. However more than the liberties about the contact rules Mr.Don is the president's son.
