* The animal kingdom has its share of bad-ass headbashers. 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]]. Heck, a plain ordinary ol' bull can headbutt your ribs into splinters, even without horns. And a full-grown male plains bison can easily do the same thing to your car's door. Orcas can headbutt hard enough to cause a whale's internal organs to ''explode''.

** On a smaller scale, seahorses head-butt one another during territorial disputes.

** Every Mishima [[note]]Yes, Jinpachi, Heihachi, Kazuya, Jin (was the case for the first ''Tag'' title, now specific to Devil Jin), even Lars has this move. Though Lee doesn't.)[[/note]] has Stonehead as a throw. As you might guess it's a headbutt throw.

* From ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'', the Bohrok, and their EliteMook cousins, the Bohrok-Kal have a headbutt gimmick. In-story, they used their heads and other powers to demolish the entire island of Mata Nui.

* In ''{{Ninjago}}: Masters of Spinjitzu'', the other characters attempt to use Zane for this. Justified in that [[spoiler:he's a robot who actually has a "Battering Ram" program for some reason.]] Subverted because the door doesn't even budge.
* In the ''{{Talkartoons}}'' short "Jack and the Beanstalk", when Bimbo is thinking of a way top reach a giant after his large cigar falls through his house from the sky, his cow tells him to "Use your bean", which gives him the idea to grow a beanstalk.

** The second Goku vs. Vegeta fight has on the anime a [[{{Narm}} rather ridiculous]] scene where the two fighters keep headbutting each other. Just like goats!

** During the inter-dimensional tournament in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', Goku ends up fighting a guy who fits the definition of StoneWall. Vegeta tells him to use his head, with predictable results. Goku then actually does figure out a logical weakness - the guy's used to letting his opponents whale away at him and doing nothing, so Goku simply flips him and drags him out of the ring.
