* Even UsefulNotes/{{Baseball}} can get in on this:
** Do we need to talk about pitchers hitting players with the ball (usually a 100+ MPH fastball)? Because we're wincing just thinking about it.
** There's also the numerous baserunners who have used their cleats as weapons of war. [[JerkAss Ty Cobb]] was particularly famous for this.

** And of course, the actual fistfights, which happen quite often, and in fact, are considered a major part of the game. The penalty for a fight is five minutes, which applies to both players. It's rather telling that there's a specific penalty called just for "fighting" as opposed to other sports that would charge players openly fighting with violating more generalized personal misconduct rules.

* The Vinny Jones vehicle ''Mean Machine'', a remake of the ''The Longest Yard.'' is centered around an association football (AKA soccer) match between prison inmates and guards. It seems only an excuse for both parties to kick the hell out of each other, the prisoners going as far as recruiting a deranged kung-fu serial killer and giving their players lessons on how to hurt their opponents while avoiding penalties.

* 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.
