** Goku headbutts Piccolo Jr. to send him out of the ring and win. That's right. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny He saved the world with a]] RingOut. He already tried the same strategy against Tenshinhan 3 years ago, where it would have worked if it wasn't for [[DiabolusExMachina that damned truck driver on the way]].

** This happens during the title character's [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome fight with Gaara.]] There is some injury, causing both characters to bleed, and it also [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu shatter Gaara's control over his jutsu]]. ''You'' try maintaining the form of a hundred-foot tall EldritchAbomination through that.

** This is what [[spoiler:Nagi]] does to [[spoiler:Arika]] to stop her from her HeroicSelfDeprecation. TWICE. While running away from a horde of monsters. With no magic. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Definitely one of the funniest scenes ever.]]

** For bonus points, counts as a CrowningMomentOfFunny mostly thanks to the fact ''[[TeenGenius Yukio]]'' [[DidntSeeThatComing didn't see]] [[http://static2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110916063909/aonoexorcist/images/9/98/Ao_no_Exorcist_-_10_-_Large_16.jpg it]] [[NotSoStoic coming]].

* 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 ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''/''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'' crossover ''Fanfic/TheVampireOfSteel'', Buffy uses a headbutt to get [[BigBad Zol-Am]] off her during their fight.
-->She felt the strain of pushing Zol-Am away, felt his greater strength drawing her nearer.\\
So she stopped resisting him and brought their foreheads together with a bang.



** This is how [[ProudWarriorRace krogan]] tell each other to "shut up", as a [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority display of dominance]]. In the second game you have a Renegade Interrupt that allows you to do this to the obnoxious Uvenk, which not only is [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome successful]] in getting him to back down, but leaves him a little dazed afterwards.

* A favourite technique of [[FatherNeptune Captain]] [[BraveScot Grim]] in ''VideoGame/TombRaider2013''. He calls it the "Glasgow Kiss" and boasts about using it on the Loch Ness Monster. [[spoiler:It [[{{Foreshadowing}} foreshadows]] his [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome awesome last stand]] later in the game, where he headbutts a goon trying to hold him hostage against Lara, and tries to take out another with a headbutt only for the goon to drag him to his death.]]

** [[spoiler:Matriarch Aethyta (Liara's "father")]] assures her that, since her grandfather was a krogan, it's perfectly natural if she ever feels the need to headbutt someone.

** [[spoiler:Matriarch Aethyta (Liara's "father")]] assures her that, since her grandfather was a krogan, it's perfectly natural if she ever feels the need to headbutt someone. And indeed, [[spoiler:Aethyta herself]] can be seen in a Shadow Broker video headbutting an uncooperative krogan, with the ''krogan'' clearly suffering more harm for it.

* A favourite tactic of Cotton Hill on ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill''. It's quite effective because he lost his shins during WorldWarII and had his feet reattached to his knees, making him short enough for his head to be [[GroinAttack approximately at crotch level]] for most people.

* Creator/GamesWorkshop games:
** 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 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.

** JYD was known for having a hard head. More than once, an opponent would headbutt him - only to hurt themselves instead!

** 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
