* Most hockey minigames in the ''SpyroTheDragon''-series involves breathing fire at your opponents. The ones that don't take place in worlds where Spyro's BreathWeapon has been changed to something else.

** And of course, the actual fistfights, which happen quite often, and in fact, are considered a major part of the game (hence the old joke, "I went to a fistfight and a hockey game broke out"). 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" (for which the offending player gets [[Music/FiveForFighting five minutes in the penalty box]]) as opposed to other sports that would charge players openly fighting with violating more generalized personal misconduct rules.

* The page image is instead from [[UsefulNotes/AssociationFootball Association Football (Soccer)]]. Namely, Nigel de Jong of the Netherlands kicking Xabi Alonso of Spain during the 2010 [[UsefulNotes/TheWorldCup World Cup]] Final. A highlight of an otherwise not especially enjoyable game (despite the fact that it was between two of the most technically gifted teams on the planet, it mostly devolved into violence) that on Website/{{Twitter}}, made ''ShaolinSoccer'' and ''MortalKombat'' into Trending Topics.

* Still on soccer, we have Brazilian defender Júnior Baiano. He reached memetic levels for his violent, reckless tackles. In the early nineties. Before internet was popular.

* ''FridayNightLights'' is full of these; in one case Riggins is shown having bloody gashes on his neck stitched up midgame, the implication being that an opponent tried to claw his jugular open.
