* One issue of ''ComicBook/XStatix'' had Tony Stark, minus his power armor, and Orphan, minus his sensory-deadening suit, fight each other naked. Orphan knows pressure points and can cause great pain with just a touch, while Tony can do the same to Orphan due to his SuperSenses that are way too sensitive. End result: lethally painful tickle fight between two grown, naked men.

See also CombatBreakdown, when an initially-skilful fight devolves into this after going on too long. A {{Catfight}} can be this, but isn't if the women involved are {{Action Girl}}s. A DesignatedGirlFight, however, is never this trope, as by definition, at least one combatant is an ActionGirl.

* Porco's and Curtis' post-air-duel boxing match in ''Anime/PorcoRosso'' quickly devolves into this: by the end of six rounds both men are so tired they don't even try to block each other's punches. It's essentially the "dramatic" version of the trope described above... except still PlayedForLaughs.

* ''ComicBook/XStatix'' #24 had a sequence in which Tony Stark and Guy Smith throw down... while both are stark naked. And ClothesMakeTheSuperman without their suits]], Tony is just an alcoholic with a weak heart, while Guy is an otherwise-skilled martial artist with [[BlessedWithSuck a staggeringly-low pain threshold thanks to his super-senses]]. It doesn't go well.

* Early in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'', Kanna tries to kill Kobayashi so Tohru can return to their original world...except that since she's a young dragon (currently in the form of a preschool-age human) and low on mana, her "murder attempt" consists of ineffectively batting Kobayashi with her fists, stopping for breath, and then starting again.

John Freeman's fight against [[BigBad The Dark Man]]/[[spoiler: [[FallenHero Gordon Freeman]]]] in the fourth installment is also animated in this manner.

** The nihilists also turn out to be this; while they talk a good talk, they end up being completely outmatched by Walter, who single-handedly kicks their asses. The Dude's part in that particular fight consists of awkwardly flailing a bag in the other guy's general direction, while his opponent hops around kicking at nothing while making pseudo kung fu poses screaming "''I fuck you! I fuck you in the ass!''" repeatedly until Walter knocks him out in one punch.

* In ''Film/TheBigLebowski'', the Dude finally confronts Da Fino, a PrivateDetective who's been tailing him in a blue Volkswagen, and things get physical. If by "physical" you mean "standing about a foot away from each other, arms outstretched, and sort of flinching ineptly at each other for a few seconds".
