* 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....
** While everyone is understandably wallowing in [[DespairEventHorizon despair]] after the events of [[WhamEpisode [S]]][[DarkestHour GAME]] [[KillEmAll OVER]], Terezi, who at this point is bleeding to death, flies over to John, crashes in front of him, walks out of the crater and still has enough strength to ''headbutt him hard enough to break his nose''.
--->"[=F1X TH1S=]"
* 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.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Paranatural}}'', Johnny [[http://www.paranatural.net/index.php?id=300 slaps RJ's tears away]].
