* In ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'', the [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep unnamed circus chef]] is fond of using his "calming pie" to calm down people by applying it to their faces. In a subversion, it doesn't usually work too well, [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20050420 as seen here]].
** Of course when it ''[[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20070117 does]]'' [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20070119 work]]....
** In a similar manner, Krosp later chomps Gilgamesh's hand in order to quickly yank him out of TheMadnessPlace.
** Dimo punches Lars to snap him out of his hysterics about the revenants.
* ''Webcomic/{{Drowtales}}'':
** Shinae not just slaps, but punches Kiel'ndia out of a hysterical fit [[spoiler:over the demon-transformation of Naal'suul]].
** Much earlier, Nihi'liir slaps Faen after she starts to panic on the way to the [[RedEyesTakeWarning tainting]] ceremony and quickly finds out why this is [[BewareTheNiceOnes not a good idea]] when dealing with TheEmpath who has PowerIncontinence. She loses an arm while their teacher, who steps in to break it up, winds up ''brain dead''.
* Parodied beautifully in ''[[http://www.biggercheese.com/index.php?comic=505 Bigger Than Cheeses]]''.
* In ''{{Juathuur}}'', [[spoiler: father figure Arvval slaps Faevv when he learns she strayed from the way. This allows him to influence her for... about ten minutes.]]
* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', Melissa did this to ''herself'' when her delusions about Justin were getting out of control and even references ''Series/{{Mythbusters}}'' involvement with this trope.
* Happens [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/index.php?s=6&p=004374 here]] in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''. Karkat goes into a HeroicBSOD and gets this treatment [[spoiler: from Spades Slick.]] The whole scene actually CrossesTheLineTwice and turn a rather serious TearJerker into a CrowningMomentOfFunny.
-->"There, there, you blubbering goddamn pansy."
** And [[spoiler:Jade]] upgrades the Brightslap to a Brightbeatdown. BewareTheNiceOnes indeed....
* Laura in ''Webcomic/{{Collar 6}}'' administers a much-needed love tap to her Mistress when Sixx indulges in a bit of {{Wangst}}ing, followed by an equally well-deserved verbal slap. It ultimately comes across as heartwarming.
* ''Webcomic/MenageA3'':
** Yuki gets one in to stop her from tearing up every magazine with naked men in a store. This exact same line is even said. [[CaptainObvious Well, y'know, except for the "man" part]].
** Performed by [=DiDi=] on Zii [[spoiler:when she considers sex (then a threesome) as a way of apologizing for breaking Gary's rare Transformer toy.]]...which was just as well; [[spoiler: it wasn't really broken, it was designed to pop back together though they had no way of knowing that at the time]].
* When Greg of ''Webcomic/RealLifeComics'' got into the 'zone' and lost his connection to reality, Dave tried to [[http://www.reallifecomics.com/archive/000203.html slap him out of it]]. It worked for a couple of seconds.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Mokepon}}'', Atticus is just recovering from nearly being shot when he and Dragonthing run into a giant swarm of angry Bug Pokémon. Dragonthing has to [[http://mokepon.smackjeeves.com/comics/1297787/chapter-4-page-61/ bite Atty]] to knock him out of his HeroicBSOD before they high-tail it.
* ''{{Magellan}}'': This line is used to get Charisma out of [[http://magellanverse.com/?p=525 future shock]].
* In ''Webcomic/CommanderKitty'', [[http://www.commanderkitty.com/2011/04/17/mind-games/ Freeda nearly shouts Ace's head off once he falls into his]] TenMinuteRetirement. It doesn't help.
