* Used for a CrowningMomentOfAwesome in the ''Film/TronLegacy'' fanfic ''A Survivors Tale'' - Clu sends a captured Yori to the Games. and just to be a complete dick, puts her up against his champion (her BrainwashedAndCrazy husband), figuring that she'll be de-rezzed easily. She's an engineer, not a warrior, after all. What Clu did ''not'' expect was Yori figuring out the mechanics of the arena, getting into grappling range with "Rinzler," and using a headbutt to knock ''both of them'' out, essentially ending the match in a draw.

* In Franchise/{{Superman}} story ''Comicbook/KryptoniteNevermore'', a corrupt tycoon head-butts Superman on the stomach. Of course, he knocks himself out. Remarkably -and stupidly- he tries this tactic after his goons break their punches by punching Superman, who had previously tanked cannon fire.

* ''Literature/GoodOmens'': Shadwell, on seeing [[spoiler:Satan himself]] start to materialize on Earth to start the Apocalypse, stands together with Crowley and Aziraphale, tosses away his arquebus, and... removes his cap.

* Shan-Yu does this in ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'' while fighting Shang. Shang doesn't [[BeautyIsNeverTarnished suffer visible damage]], but it knocks him down quite effectively. And in a nice moment of realism, Shan-Yu's own eyes are shown to be momentarily unfocused after the blow.

** Check out pachycephalosaurs, ''Majungasaurus'', bighorn sheep, some chalicotheres, and giraffes. Yes, ''giraffes''. Less so with the former, as they were originally thought to have engaged on direct-headbutting action, but biomechanical studies suggest that flank-butting (like giraffes) is more likely. Giraffes are basically the living version of EpicFlail. Don't believe me? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=huxDnZs2_OQ Just look at this]]. Yeah, you go and say giraffes aren't BadAss. I'll be over here [[TemptingFate where it's safe]].

* ''Series/JessicaJones2015'': In the opening of "AKA You're a Winner", Kilgrave uses his [[MindRape powers]] to blatantly cheat at backroom poker. After winning an entire jackpot by simply commanding the other players to go all-in and then fold, he takes their money and starts to walk out, but one player that had been really annoying to Kilgrave stops him.
-->'''Harvey:''' I don't know what just happened there. But you're gonna sit down and give us a shot to win our money back.
-->'''Kilgrave:''' I've got a better idea: let's see how long it takes you to put your head through that post. ''[As Kilgrave walks out, Harvey turns to a solid wooden column next to him and immediately begins bashing his head against it]''

* ''Creator/{{Gotlib}}'' has a wacky variant (it's Gotlib after all) which could either be shoehorned into this trope or would need a new subtrope with this entry as only element. So here goes nothing: An intellectual gets clobbered by a stone-age brute. He then holds his nose tight and blows until his brain flies out of his ear, hits the brute and scores a clean K.O. "Use your brain" indeed.
