Wipe The Floor With You

Trope
Do We Have This One?? Needs a Better Title

One character grabs and drags another character against the floor or wall.

Compare What a Drag for when this is done when the victim is pulled by a fast moving object.

Examples:

Anime and Manga
  • In Hellsing, Seras uses her Super Speed to kill Zorin by grinding her head against the wall.
  • During Ichigo and Ulquiorra's battle in the Bleach anime, Ichigo's Super-Powered Evil Side does this to Ulquiorra, smashing his head into a wall.

Film
  • In Constantine, when the devil finally gets Constantine's soul he makes his exit from the room by dragging him by the feet through a pool of his own blood.
  • In Spider-Man 3, Spider-Man essentially does this by holding Sandman's face next to a moving subway.

Live-Action TV
  • In CSI: NY, Frankie does this to Stella in the episode All Access.

Video Games

Web Animation
  • In Dead Fantasy 2, Tifa does this to Kasumi while they're running down the side of a building, and then runs her through several stone pillars for good measure.

Web Comics
  • Used inn an early appearance of an arc villain in Geist Panik, when he drags an unfortunate victim's face against a brick wall. The attack is fatal. The perpetrator laments his lack of an iPod, since he feels that playing some Rammstein would make the act much more badass.

    After Achilles killed Hector, Achilles tied him up to his carrige an rode off back to his camp, with Hector's corpse dragging on the ground. This happened in Troy, but it may have happened in The Iliad too.

    Drag Attack? Oh, this trope may be connected to What A Drag, accept this is when the character is alive... hmm...

    Wipe The Floor With You would work as a title.

    I could have sworn we had a trope when a mooks body is used as a surfing board, kinda like Dante does at the beginning of Devil May Cry 3, but Body Surf is something entirely different....

    There are a lot of instances that depict cavemen as clubbing women on the head and dragging them back to their caves. I know Tex Avery and The Far Side have done it.

    Both Rock's and Astaroth's Critical Finsishes use this trope in Soul Calibur 4, with a giant mace and axe respectively.

    ^^ I think that's under What A Drag.

    ^^^Cavemen dragging mates should be its own trope, but I'm not finding it so it may as well be here until such time as someone makes a ykttw for it.

    Done in this parody of Looney Tunes from Family Guy.

    Well, that's more just dragging off the ground. Looks like that trope is worth a try later.

    A few King Of Fighters characters have grab moves where they drag the opponent along the ground, notably Yamazaki and Vice.

    It's also one of Sodom's moves in Street Fighter Alpha, to the point where the opponent catches fire.

    Looks good, anyone thinking of a better title?

    may not be relevant enough, but Emo Phillips has a good joke about this...

    "So this guy says, 'I'm gonna wipe the floor with your face.' I say, 'You'll regret that!' He asks why. 'Because, well you won't be able to get into the corners very well...'"
