* In episode 4 of ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'', Ladd Russo shows just how much of a {{Badass}} antagonist he is by mercilessly beating up a member of the Lemures with his bare fists, taunting him all the while. [[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown He continues beating the man's bloody face even long after it's apparent that his victim is dead]], then just laughs it off. The episode itself is appropriately titled "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Ladd Russo Enjoys Talking a Lot and Killing a Lot]]."

** This occurs once again in Stardust Crusaders when [[spoiler:Iggy tricks Vanilla Ice into attacking a decoy DIO, enraging him so much that he begins to relentlessly and continually kick Iggy into the wall, rather than quickly kill him with his Stand, Cream. This ends up leading to Iggy's death, going on for approximately a full minute in the anime adaptation.]]

** ''Anime/VividStrike'' shows [[NightmareFuel the most utterly brutal one]] in ''Nanoha'' history in episode 4: [[spoiler: 3 of Rinne's classmates had been bullying her, destroying her grandfather's keepsake and [[NeverGotToSayGoodbye preventing her from being able to get home to him before he died]]. She did not respond with magical attacks in the tradition of the ''Nanoha'' universe: her retribution was physical, brutal, and horrifyingly bloody.]]

* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'':
** Jonathan Joestar's beatdown of Dio Brando in the first part, wherein he beats Dio ''so'' badly that Dio actually starts to cry. Considering how much crap Dio had put Jonathan through from literally the moment the two met, this was really cathartic.
** Most main characters get at least one of these throughout the course of their part of the series, though not usually against the main villain. Jotaro completely annihilating Steely Dan after being put through all kinds of torture while he held his grandfather hostage comes to mind. The guy gets beaten up for ''three full pages'', mind you (and over '''''twenty seconds''''' in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gzuXrCTop2Q the anime]]).
** Giorno gives the biggest beatdown in the manga to Ciocolata that lasts for 7 pages straight, ending it by punching him into a garbage truck. It's cranked up even more with GER, that uses this trope and has infinite stats.

** Any time a character shows of their new training or powers such as: Goku's one shotting of Nappa, Vegeta's use of a fake moon to turn into an Ozaruu and literally crush the life out of Goku, Vegeta against Qui and later Dodoira, Zarbon's use of transformation, Vegeta demonstrating Sayan zenkai to Zarbon, The Ginyu's vs. Vegeta Krillin and Gohan, Goku vs. the Ginyu's Frieza in each new form to someone else, Goku once he achieves Super Sayan... The rest of the series continues in much the same manner...

*** Gohan going [=SS=]2 had him deliver one to Cell, only using a Ki attack at one point in the fight and mostly pummelling him. Turning [=SS=]2 gave Gohan a sadistic streak rivaling Frieza and had him let Cell hit him once just to show how outmatched Cell was, and as the fight went on it became clear Gohan was just dragging the fight out to torture him, which eventually backfired.

* Nagisa briefly suffers this in his fight with [[DrillSergeantNasty Takaoka]] in ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom''. However, not only does it not put Nagisa down, it gives Nagisa the chance to knock out Takaoka with a stun gun.
** The fight between Nagisa and Karma also counts, since both fighters are not holding back.
* Munakata does this to Naegi in Episode 10 of ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'''s Future Arc.

* In ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha,'' Precia Testarossa makes her debut in Episode 7, where she [[ATasteOfTheLash severely whips her "daughter" to the point where she could barely get up]]. This was brought on when she failed to collect all of the Jewels.

** Usually when Polnareff finishes someone off, he [[TheresNoKillLikeOverkill ''really'' overdoes it]]. He was particularly restrained, when he finished off [[spoiler: Vanilla Ice]] only because [[spoiler: he managed to survive all his attacks.]] It takes a lot of hits to make your enemy look like a victim of a car crash, especially if your only weapon is rapier.

* In ''Anime/YuGiOh'', the end of the battle between Yami and Insector/Weevil on the top of the train qualifies as a hero-on-villain version of this trope. Despite already having won by the game rules, Yami just keeps on pulling his kill spell effect on a defenseless Weevil.
** And he would have probably continued until Weevil fell unconscious from the pain had Anzu not intervened
