* ''Fanfic/ShinjiAndWarhammer40K'': It's called the Ikari. It begins with a headbutt and it ends with the opponent on the ground crying for mercy. The best part of this is it was first used in a CrowningMomentOfAwesome where EVA-01 loses the function of both its arms [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer and only has its head]].

* In ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'', Asuka head butted a [[EldritchAbomination MP-Eva]] when she fought nine of them.
-->A long blade slammed through right shoulder while another one skittered across her torso armour, looking for a gap to plunge in and begin ripping out her Evas guts. Asuka held off its other hands while it snapped at her face, drool flying off its shiny, metallic razor sharp teeth to splatter across Unit 02s helmet.\\
Asuka head butted it.

* Several martial arts allow and/or teach the use of headbutts.
** Headbutts are allowed in muay boran, adding a ninth contact surface as opposed to the eight of muay thai.
** UsefulNotes/{{Capoeira}} employs spearing headbutts as one of the prime ways to show an opponent that they've left their mid-section open, particularly during cartwheels. It also enforces them during short clinches.
** Some hybrid/full contact karate rulesets allow headbutting. Among them it's famous the school of Daido-juku Kudo, whose practitioners are forced to wear a special mask. A similar case is done with combat sambo.
** Even judo used to contain headbutts as part of its forgotten striking part of atemi-waza.

* Justified in ''Film/TheDirtyDozen''. When you're wearing a steel helmet and your opponent isn't, headbutts and blocking punches with your forehead suddenly become beautifully viable.
