* ''Anime/MetalFightBeyblade'': In the episode "The Furious DJ Battle!?", the American DJ and Blader DJ both want to be the announcers for the upcoming Beyblade World Tournament and agree to decide the announcer through a Beyblade match. The gang thinks that the battle will be epic since they are announcers and all. But once the battle starts, they quickly see how wrong they are. The DJ's prove to have no skill at all with the tops barely spinning enough to move forward and making the tiniest of impact. What makes it more {{egregious}} is that even though the fight is clearly lame and the gang isn't impressed in the slightest, the [[LargeHamAnnouncer announcers exclaim as if it's the most intense battle ever.]] Needless to say, this was {{Played for Laughs}}.

* Early on in ''Manga/FairyTail'' Lucy's first real fight against Sherry is basically this. Both have magic that involves using summoned creatures (and Sherry could turn Lucy's against her) but once both of them are out of magic it basically becomes the two indirect mages pathetically pummeling at each other, until Lucy finally gets a good hit in being a slightly better fight, though not much. 400 chapters later Lucy fights a similar gimmicky villain, but once the tricks are out and it turns into a fist fight again, she clobbers her opponent in one punch, showing how she grew as a fighter.
* 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.

* Curtis vs. Porco in ''Anime/PorcoRosso'' eventually devolves into this. Both men are ace pilots, yes. Neither of them are particularly good at boxing, especially after going at each other for a couple of rounds and being too stubborn to quit.

* 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". [[spoiler: 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 and screaming "''I fuck you! I fuck you in the ass!''" over and over until Walter knocks him out in one hit.]]

* In ''A Barrel Of Laughs A Vale Of Tears'' by Creator/JulesFeiffer, the hero and his enemy have a ridiculous "battle" in a forest of knee-high trees. The enemy is such a bad swordsman, the hero just moves from side to side, avoiding his blows, till he is too tired to fight anymore.

As such, her melee attacks include comical, timid slapping at enemies with her eyes closed...which is [[FingerPokeOfDoom as lethal as]] when she decides to just stab them.

* On ''WebAnimation/LesKassos'', the "Knights of the Horoscope" (parodying ''Manga/SaintSeiya'' characters) fight between themselves with light slaps -- fittingly, as they're very much CampGay.



* In ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'', two talk show guests devolve into this after insulting each other. A third person present calls for a tazer.

* In ''ComicStrip/BeetleBailey'', a fight between Julius and Rocky is shown as pretty hopeless fist-poking. That's understandable with Julius, who's one of the wimpiest characters around -- someone once remarked that if he and Lt. Fuzz were to fight, both would lose -- but it's odd for Rocky, an ex-gang member and PsychoForHire wannabe.

** And in "If Memory Serves" it takes both Dexter and Mandark a moment to realize they are both merely slapping aimlessly at the air with their eyes closed during their fight thus they simultaneously take a step closer to each other and end up knocking each others glasses off. The duo then wander around aimlessly and end up destroying a lamp and a potted planet respectively, thinking it was their opponent.

* Shippou and Sōten in ''Anime/InuYasha'' episode "Shippo Gets an Angry Challenge". First they "fight" by drawing caricatures of each other, then by aping stereotype "ninja" fighting style (without much success), then by throwing mushrooms and acorns... both unable to do any real damage, they finally get exhausted and talk it out.

Especially silly versions may consist of nothing but the two characters standing at arm's length and flailing their hands at each other. They may also have their faces averted, which protects them from the minute chance of their foe getting a hit in on their face, but also prevents them from aiming whatsoever. This is almost invariably harmless.

** And then the EPIC SHOWDOWN in "Cartoon Wars, Part 1" ends with a teaser for a truly epic mano-e-mano fight. What we actually got... was a [[http://www.southparkstudios.com/clips/155225/slap-fight bitch-slapping contest]] that took 5 minutes before they became exhausted. [[ThereWasADoor But they still manage to crash through walls.]] Featuring such gems of {{Badass}} dialogue as "Time out! Time out! ...Time in!" and "No hitting in the balls!"

* ''Film/NoobLaQueteLegendaire'' reaches a point where Sparadrap is trying to keep information away from his younger brother, who lives under the same roof as him in real life and really wants it. Sparadrap quickly gets tired of the harassement and decides the only solution is to "beat up" his brother. The combination of the "beating up" and his brother's self-defense ends up like this, to the point that when they start calming down and actually start talking about each other's reasons, they are still hitting on each other with stuffed animals.
