** In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'', an ‘Eadbutt is one of the randomly generated attacks that a Giant is able to deliver against larger opponents. In battle, such an attack can only cause a single wound but it dazes the target so that they are briefly unable to attack themselves.
** In ''TabletopGame/WarhammerAgeOfSigmar'' [[TheAlcoholic Aleguzzler]] [[OurGiantsAreBigger Gargants]] are able to unleash a devastating head-butt against their foes. Although it is their less accurate, when it hits this ‘Eadbutt is capable of doing far more damage than any of its other attacks.
** Ghazghkull Thraka, the greatest [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Ork]] Warlord from ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'', had part of his skull replaced with a bionic skull, made from [[FantasyMetals adamantium]], with which he is able to deliver a powerful head-butt. [[GameplayStorySegregation Whether this is represented in the game rules]] [[DependingOnTheWriter changes from edition to edition]].

** In a subversion, at some moment Sakuragi did this ''to himself''. When Rukawa once called him out on not going all out on the rivals, Sakuragi's reply was to... hit his own head ''on the hard floor of the basketball court''. From then on, however, he decides to stop holding back.

** In Episode 93, when Stumpy and Quack Quack are training to be firefighters, their practice involves "saving" Mr. Cat from a building with fake flames. Stumpy tries to break down the door by using Quack Quack's head as a battering ram. It doesn't work, so Kaeloo tells them to use the ladder to get to the window Mr. Cat is at. [[TheDitz Stumpy]] then tries to smash the windowsill while continuing to use Quack Quack's head as a battering ram instead of just grabbing Mr. Cat, and Mr. Cat does an AsideGlance to the audience.

** Ash's Glalie is infamous for defeating a Charizard and a ''Metang'' with a headbutt, both opponent's having a type advantage over Glalie. Even more impressive (and kind of unbelievable) considering the fact that Metang is a Steel-type and Normal attacks are ineffective against Steel-types

* 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.
