* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: What Tatum provides to Homer. In the space of ''ten seconds'' of the first round, he's concussed him so badly that everybody else fears Tatum [[CasualtyOnTheRing is going to kill him]]. The advertisement before that makes no secret that Tatum can deliver such a feat, with the main ad being [[YourHeadAexplodes Homer's head exploding when Tatum hits it]].

* TranquilFury: Parodied: Tatum puts a stop to a prison riot (to the point where [[UpToEleven the prisoners retreat to their cells and even the guards apologize]]) merely by telling them to shut up (since it was distracting him from his Jello).
