** Alternatively, the arm-grabber in question has a nasty bladed gauntlet ([[ChainsawGood chainsaw attachment]] optional) expressly for this purpose, and pretty much pulverizes Alice's arm, leaving her incapacitated.
** Alternately again: He doesn't just ''grab'' her arm -- he puts her in a painful hammerlock.

** Alternatively, AGAIN, the mook just has a really really strong grip.
** Alternatively, AGAIN again, the mook is an energy stealer, and drains Alice's energy by gripping her arm, thus subduing her.
** Alternatively yet again, this is Alice's first outing. When Emperor Evulz grabs her, she panics.
** Alternatively, [[RunningGag YET AGAIN,]] picking a fight with the opponent isn't the best option in this case, and the grab makes Alice realize that she almost lost her temper when she shouldn't have.
** Alternatively, [[RunningGag YET YET AGAIN,]] Emperor Evulz is a terrifying bad guy who just oozes menace, so just about ANYONE would be paralyzed by fear if he crept up behind them and grabbed them.
** Alternatively, [[OverlyLongGag YET YET YET AGAIN,]] Alice is a boxer and her other arm is broken.
** Alternatively, ''YET'' YET YET YET AGAIN, Alice is small and/or Emperor Evulz is really big. He lifts her up by the arm at arm's length, and Alice has no way of getting down.

* '''Enforced''':
** The villains of the piece are an army of super badass women who can only feel pain if they are grabbed in their arms.
** The writers may feel- [[ExecutiveMeddling or may have been told]]- that other ways of subduing a female character (like a "full nelson") are too graphic or sexual to portray (as, for example, a man would have less latitude with what areas of a woman's body he can grab without it being considered sexual), so they resort to this move as a compromise.
