* [[TheStoic Lyude]] in ''VideoGame/BatenKaitosEternalWingsAndTheLostOcean'' has an attack called Sfrozando which is this. He runs in and savagely beats the opponent down with the butt of his gun.

* Deconstructed midway through ''VideoGame/YggdraUnion'', when Yggdra finds and chases after Gulcasa while he and the Imperial Army are trying to retreat. Every time she catches up to him, she beats him viciously in battles where she is [[UnstoppableRage literally invincible]] until he manages to escape and run just a bit further away -- and it turns out that having figured she would react thus upon seeing him, he'd decided to be living bait to draw her into an ambush. Yggdra falls into the trap face-first, and despite being in poor shape, Gulcasa leads the counterattack and mobs her into submission. The moral of the story is that letting your rage control you to tap into a few moments of brute strength is [[Webcomic/MSPaintAdventures stupid stupid dumb]] when you're the hero of a ''[[GenreBlindness strategy game]].''



** ''[[VideoGame/MortalKombat3 Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3]]'''s home editions introduced Brutalities, which were specific 11-hit sequences of punches and kicks.

** ''[[VideoGame/MortalKombat3 Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3]]'''s home editions introduced Brutalities, which were specific 11-hit sequences where instead of punches and kicks. killing your now-helpless enemy with a quick (if seldom clean) fatality, you deliver a beating until you [[LudicrousGibs shred their bodies into flying bone shards.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/TheLastOfUs'': After a rough BossFight, [[spoiler:Ellie]] makes damn sure [[spoiler:David]] won't be getting up again via machete; the impression is that the hacking would have continued until complete exhaustion if not for [[spoiler:Joel's]] interruption.
* In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'', don't stand behind the Executioner when he's recovering from a stagger, or he'll cut you down with his SpinAttack.
* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6'':
** When [[spoiler:[[FinalBoss Simmons]]]] downshifts back into human(ish) form and is vulnerable to melee attacks, Leon, Ada, and Helena will all drop the flashy choreography and just run up, knock him down, and beat the living shit out of his face with their bare hands, each of which ends with a windup punch that knocks him flat. You can practically ''taste'' the rage they put into each blow.
** During the [[FisticuffsBoss final portion]] of his own final boss, Jake jumps at the Ustanak and just starts beating the tar out of him in much the same way while [[PrecisionFStrike screaming profanities]] at him, ending it with a MegatonPunch that knocks him flying and into the LavaPit below them.
* [[TheStoic Lyude]] in ''VideoGame/BatenKaitosEternalWingsAndTheLostOcean'' has an attack called Sfrozando which is this. He runs in and savagely beats the opponent down with the butt of his gun.
* ''VideoGame/TransformersFallOfCybertron'' allows the player, as [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs Grimlock]], to engage in this against the [[BigCreepyCrawlies Insecticon]] who's just spent the boss fight [[PsychoElectro electrically torturing]] one of his teammates.

Added DiffLines:

** In ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterIV Super Street Fighter IV]]'', each character has access to Ultra Combos, which are performed using energy from the Revenge Gauge and can do massive damage with a full RG, rather than a half-filled one. The Revenge Gauge fills as your character gets beaten up. Some of the Ultra Combos are pretty brutal.

** You can even do this yourself in the adventurer mode. A list of examples: Zamochit (Breaking every bone in the body, one by one), gouging your opponent's eyes out, biting, repeatedly pinching the face, ripping out teeth, or ripping of fingers. The point is, the combat system is extremely detailed and loaded with opportunities to do bad things.

* Very nearly happens to [[spoiler:Phoenix]] by [[spoiler:Furio Tigre and Jean Armstrong]] ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyTrialsAndTribulations''. [[spoiler:It's very possible Nick would have died then and there, or at least been reduced to a bleeding wreck, if Detective Gumshoe hadn't [[BigDamnHeroes shown up at the last second]]]].
** Actually averted in the series general; most of the victims tend to die because of a single (or few) killing blow. Otherwise, when there appears to be several bruises all over the victim's body, it's typically because they fell some distance, either as a cause of their death, or after they had already died.

* There's a magical version of this at the end of the Genocide Run of ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}''. [[spoiler:Sans, the otherwise friendly and goofy skeleton]] finally brings the fight to you at long last [[VideoGameCrueltyPunishment after everything you've done]], and at one point smashes your SOUL against every flat surface he can find out of pure unadulterated frustration, anger, and despair, a very stark contrast to the more elegant BulletHell mechanics previously employed by the game. Fanon tends to interpret this as him grabbing you and simply slamming you into the floors, walls, and ceiling. Notably, this ''hurts,'' and marks the only time that the color change mechanic unquestionably causes you direct harm.
