->''"Ow! My boobs! I need those for seducing!"''
-->-- '''Hinata''', ''WebVideo/NarutoTheAbridgedSeries''

Breast Attack is the DistaffCounterpart to GroinAttack, since receiving blunt trauma to the breasts is painful for women, though maybe not as painful as Groin Attack is for men (not that many people can be a proper judge of that). The nipples are also rather sensitive, though this is also true for men to a lesser extent.

In reality, a GroinAttack is much more dangerous and painful for women than a Breast Attack, not even so much because of genitalia but more because of being a site of most major vital nerves and blood-vessels to the lower extremities. However, in a fight, breasts are a much easier target, which is why the Breast Attack is much more common than a female Groin Attack.

A Breast Attack is sometimes intended to show that the [[AlwaysMale male]] attacker is [[TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty playing dirty]] (and [[WouldHitAGirl against a woman too]], [[DoubleStandard how low!]]). You're supposed to wince at this one, but this trope is occasionally PlayedForLaughs. If the victim is already a ButtMonkey, it's okay to laugh. Or if it's [[CatFight a woman doing it to another woman]]. Or a man [[ComedicSociopathy getting a purple nurple]].

Note that in RealLife this attack is ''almost always'' considered a low blow (no matter who does it) and can cause minor injury, which is why we recommend that you DontTryThisAtHome.

Contrast TorpedoTits ([[RussianReversal where breasts attack you]]).


[[folder: Anime & Manga]]
* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' this is a common trick (mostly by the Tendo sisters) to subdue Ranma in female form, mostly because Ranma - a guy who's cursed to transform into a woman - is still unused to the enhanced sensitivity and [[RuleOfFunny because it's funny.]]
* ''IchiTheKiller''. Poor Myu-Myu. (See Film example below for why. It's not pretty.)
** In another scene, a prostitute has her nipples cut off.
* In ''{{Hellsing}}'', in a ShootTheHostage moment, Alucard shoots the VillainOfTheWeek through Seras, making a rather large hole through her right breast. [[SuperEmpowering She gets better, though.]] [[GoodThingYouCanHeal More or less.]]
** Rip Van Winkle gets a particularly ''brutal'' one by Alucard. He took her musket and impaled her through her left breast with it. Keep in mind that her musket has no bayonet and therefore is completely blunt and impractical for stabbing, so it must've hurt much worse.
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'':
** Kabuto didn't ''mean'' to attack Tsunade's breasts. He was just trying to stab her in the heart, but her brobdingnagian boobage got in the way.
*** Doubly played for laughs, as Kabuto can't determine if his attack on her internal organs was ineffective because her advanced ninja training let her deflect/cancel it out or because her breasts are just too damn big to get through.
** Hinata was hit with one as well. Her cousin was aiming for her heart.
* In ''{{Change123}}'', Ginga "boob bite" and "boob slap" Miriki.
* ''Manga/{{Basilisk}}'' example: [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass Josuke]] revealed that he survived [[BloodyMurder Akeginu's]] attack by suddenly [[LovableSexManiac grabbing her breast, hurting her.]]
** Later, [[RubberMan Rozai]] threatens to rip Okoi's breasts if she refuse to speak.
* In ''BurnUp'' ''Excess'', Rio caught in a choke hold by the female [[TheDragon Dragon]], she frees herself by squeezing the dragons breasts before knocking her out.
* Near the end of the Red/Green/Blue arc in ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'', Blue makes some derogatory comments about Sabrina's bustline, so Sabrina has her Alakazam slash Blue across the chest to spite her. [[spoiler:Too bad Blue was baiting her, and the attack opened the Pokéballs she'd stashed in VictoriasSecretCompartment.]] (This is {{Bowdlerize}}d in the current English version, though the original one had it intact.)
* In ''Anime/StreetFighterIVTheTiesThatBind'', Cammy received this from C.Viper. Before this, she even received a GroinAttack, too! And both were [[ShockAndAwe charged with electricity!]] OUCH.
* ''Manga/{{InuYasha}}'': In episode 4, Inuyasha pulls one off against [[MonsterOfTheWeek Yura]], opening a [[TorsoWithAView gaping hole]] in her chest in the process. Yura is [[SuperToughness unfazed]] and simply [[AffablyEvil scolds]] him for trying to cop a feel.
* In episode 3 of ''Manga/OneechanGaKita'', Ichika slaps her friend Marina's breasts after the former's brother stares at them when first being introduced to each other. The friend is understandably confused to the sudden slap.
* Self-inflicted in ''Manga/TheLegendOfMotherSarah'', where the title character thrusts a wooden stake through her right breast in order for it to stop lactating and [[spoiler: to punish herself for having killed her own infant]]. She is now wearing a permanent prosthetic right breast made of steel.
* In episode 5 of ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'', while playing chicken in the pool, Yukari actually ''[[ManBitesMan bites]]'' Kurumu's left breast.
* In chapter 32 of Manga/{{Okusan}} [[http://i.imgur.com/ujcQKG9.png a ball hits Kyouko's right breasts so hard from the side it causes the left one to bounce into another girl's face who was standing beside her]].
* Happens in HighschoolOfTheDead, when Takashi grabs one of Saeko's [[GagBoobs huge breasts]] and squeezes it strongly, to the point of almost crushing it, while giving her a RousingSpeech to [[spoiler: stop her from letting herself be killed.]]
* Parodied in ''Manga/FushigiYuugi''. [[BigEater Miaka]] was dreaming of food while she was sick in bed, then she woke up so hungry that she accidentally bit her temporal caretaker Shouka's breast when she came to check on her well being.

[[folder: Comic Books]]
* In the Creator/GarthEnnis SuperHero satire ''ComicBook/ThePro'', the main character is a bitter, cynical hooker with a baby who is given powers and inducted into a JLA-like organization to [[TheyFightCrime fight crime]]. In a case at the UN, she is shot by a supervillain with a laser in the gut. [[BerserkButton Bad idea]]. With an outraged cry "Cunt RAG!", she gives the villianess a titty-twisting that made EVERYBODY wince.
* [[ScottPilgrim "You punched me in the boob!]] [[PrepareToDie Prepare to die]], [[SeriousBusiness obviously!"]]
** I don't hit girls...They're ''soft''...
* ''TheIncredibleHercules'' provides us, [[http://adudesguide.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/purple-nurp.jpg the world's most divine purple nurple.]]

[[folder: Film]]
* ''ScaryMovie 4'': A torture device that's a parody of the death traps from ''{{Saw}}'' does purple nurples.
* ''MillionDollarBaby'': "I want you to jab that kraut right in the tits until they turn blue and fall off!"
* In ''Film/KungPowEnterTheFist'', The Chosen One defeats a cow he is fighting by milking it.
** This is after the cow attacks him by milking ''itself'' and using the jets of milk as a distraction.
* Played for laughs in JackieChan's ''Film/OperationCondor'' when a large woman is double-punched in the chest and her breasts bounce with a sound effect better suited to something much heavier. She is rendered incapable of fighting until she stops them bouncing. Jackie at least has the decency to apologize.
* In Roger Avary's ''Film/KillingZoe'' the titular Zoe slaps the (male) main character's nipple for calling her a prostitute. In fairness he had just paid her for sex.
* In ''Film/SuddenImpact'' Jennifer Spencer is on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge on a group of people who had raped her and her sister years before. Before she kills them she shoots them in the groin. One woman was involved - she shoots her in the breast.
* In ''Film/{{Mallrats}}'', Gwen sneaks up on her old boyfriend TS, who jumps and "elbows [her] right in the freakin' tit!" She responds by giving TS an upward double axe handle to the groin. (Brodie uses the opportunity to explain his opinion of karmic justice to TS.)
* In an unfilmed scene from an early draft of ''Film/FerrisBuellersDayOff'', Jeanie Bueller is talking with one of her friends; her friend pisses her off, and Jeannie responds, "I'll sock your tits."
* In the film ''{{Kingpin}}'', the male and female leads get into a fist fight. The female delivers a few [[GroinAttack shots between the legs]] so the male delivers several Breast Attacks.
* At one point in ''ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld'', Scott is attacked by a cloaked figure. When he strikes back, the figure yells: "You punched me in the boob! Prepare to die, obviously!"
** [[{{Superbad}} Funnily enough, that isn't even the first mammary based assault Michael Cera has pulled off, they're both accidental.]]
* In ''CrankHighVoltage,'' a prostitute is shot in the breasts, though it only causes her implants to leak.
* After seducing another character, Angela rips the skin off her breasts in the ''NightOfTheDemons'' remake.
* ''{{House at the Edge of the Park}}'' when the villain gets his hands on the most innocent character who arrives late to the party.
* In ''Film/KillBill'' volume 2, when the Bride goes after Budd, she's taken down when Budd unloads two barrels worth of rock salt from his shotgun into her breasts.
-->'''Budd:''' That gentled ya down some. Ain't nobody a badass with a double dose of rock salt that deep in their tits. Not havin' tits as fine or big as yours, I can't even imagine how bad that shit must sting... yet I don't want to, neither.
* Karl hacks off and eats a breast in ''ViolentShit''.
* Sawney Bean is shown drinking blood out of a severed breast in ''Hillside Cannibals''.
* In the original ScaryMovie, Ghostface stabs Drew Decker in the chest only to pull the knife out with the breast implant impaled on it.
* In IchiTheKiller, [[TortureTechnician Saburo]] [[ColdBloodedTorture tortures Myu-Myu]] by stretching her nipples with crocodile clips and then severs them both with a single pull of the scalpel.
* In the original ''TheBadNewsBears'', Tatum O'Neal's character has to be removed from the big game when she is spiked in the chest area by a player on the other team.
** [[ACupAngst "I ain't got much up there, but what I got sure does hurt!"]]
* The AlphaBitch from the rival sorority in ''Film/TheHouseBunny'' has a habit of punching her best friend in the boob when she's in a bad mood.

[[folder: Literature]]
* In ''[[Literature/IncarnationsOfImmortality On a Pale Horse]]'', the hero's girlfriend, Luna, is tortured by being stripped to her waist, and her chest being touched by [[ElectricTorture active electrodes]].
%%* A particular magic-user in the ''Literature/SwordOfTruth'' series controls people (women and men alike) by cutting off a nipple to use in SympatheticMagic.
* In Book 5 of ''Literature/TheFaerieQueene'', during Britomart's CombatByChampion with Radigund, the narrator notes that the two women did not "spare each other's most tender parts," or something like that, despite both being women and therefore knowing how much it would hurt. I guess we have here the logic behind CatFight and DesignatedGirlFight.
%%* In the fourth book of ''Literature/{{A Song of Ice and Fire}}'', [[spoiler: The Blue Bard]] is being tortured by [[spoiler: the MadDoctor Qyburn on Cersei's orders]] under the Red Keep. During said torture scene, he remarks about men's nipples sometimes being as sensitive as women's nipples, then removes [[spoiler: the Bard's]] nipples.
%%* In an early chapter of ''Literature/{{Friday}}'', the heroine is tortured by having one of her nipples cut off. This being science fiction, her doctor is able to regrow the body part, but it is good for a guilt trip later in the novel when she meets one of her captors.
* In ''Literature/TheIliad'', after [[ActionGirl Athena]] K.O.'s Ares with a boulder, Aphrodite goes to help him. Well, Athena is still angry: "She charged at Aphrodite, overtook her and beat her breasts with clenched fists." As one would expect from the wimpy Aphrodite, "Down she sank with Ares, resistance quite dissolved."
%%* From the Creator/IanFleming novel ''[[Literature/JamesBond Dr No]]'', describing the murder of a female MI6 agent: "The man smiled broadly. Slowly, lovingly, he lifted the gun and shot her three times in and around the left breast."
* Creator/JTEdson's novels often feature {{Cat Fight}}s. These frequently involve a Breast Attack.
* In the novelization of the movie''Film/{{Highlander}}'', there is a flashback scene where the Kurgan is with a prostitute whose nipples had been cut off.

[[folder: Live Action TV]]
* During a Thanksgiving episode of ''Series/{{Friends}}'' the gang is having a game of American football for the Gellar Cup. Monica throws the ball to the inexperienced Phoebe who catches it, but it strikes her in the chest hard and she squeals: "Oh! Broken boobs!"
* ''Franchise/SuperSentai''
** In one episode of ''Series/DengekiSentaiChangeman'', the MonsterOfTheWeek employs fishes with huge mouths to attack/bite the team. While each team members got bitten, poor Sayaka/Change Mermaid got bitten on the breast area, with her knocking them down while yelling "PERVERT!". Fun fact is that since she's attacked while morphed, the Changeman female suits offer no visible breasts.
** Male on female variation in ''Series/SeijuuSentaiGingaman'', the villainess Shelinda was slashed on her breast(to specify, [[ChainmailBikini chest-armor]]) by Hayate. Granted, she [[WouldHurtAChild happened to kill Yuuta]] just a moment before.([[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Thank god]] that [[DisneyDeath boy survived.]])
** Frequently happens in ''Series/HikoninSentaiAkibaranger'' courtesy to the villainess Malseena, who often target the female ranger this way.
* The ''ShakeItUp'' episode "Party It Up" had a scene where it did happen, when [=CeCe=] and Rocky body bumped copying the boys... but in turn, both girls groan from the pain.
* [[Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway Wayne Brady]] apparently thinks that purple nurples are part and parcel of a female prison riot (the "persona" he got saddled with in ''Lets make a Date'').
* Charlie Runkle's unfortunate nipple mishap in ''Series/{{Californication}}'' constitutes a rare male example of this trope.
* An episode of ''YesDear'' has Kim accidentally doing this to the then-wife of her husband's boss while playing tennis. Good thing her husband didn't get punished for this.
** Another one involving Christine boxing Jimmy's boss. (A female security guard)
---> '''Christine:''' Ow...she punched me in the boob. Can you do that?
---> '''Jimmy's Boss:''' *annoyed* Yeah.
---> '''Christine:''' Oh. (punches Jimmy's boss in the boob)
* ''NewGirl'' had the "boob fight" between Jess and Cece.
* In ''Series/TheWire'', the Barksdale Organization tries to deal with the [[LackOfEmpathy sociopathic]] rising drug lord Marlo by using a HoneyTrap to lure him into an ambush. Marlo, being a GenreSavvy little bastard, investigates the girl doing so and finds her connection to the Barksdales. Instead he ambushes ''her'', shoots her in both breasts and then again in the head as she's lying dead on the ground, to send a message.

* Music/PearlJam, "Jeremy": "He gnashed his teeth and bit the recess lady's breast"

[[folder: Professional Wrestling]]
* [[Wrestling/KiaStevens Awesome Kong]] uses a move where she hoists her opponent up in a chicken wing hold, pulling their arms behind her, and then dropping her face-first on the mat, calling it the "Implant Buster."
* Knife edged chops used to be considered a dirty move even if you didn't have breasts or avoided hitting them. Thanks to Wrestling/ShaneDouglas and Wrestling/{{ECW}} they are more like a free crowd reaction in the USA. The crowd may not like that you're beating up their favorite wrestlers but will still likely go "[[Wrestling/RicFlair whoo]]" if you chop one.
* In Wrestling/{{TNA}}, ODB proved she was so tough she let Cody Deaner use her breasts as speed bags while she was training him.

[[folder: Webcomics]]
* Misho inflicts one upon Nova in [[http://keychain.patternspider.net/archive/koc0172.html this]] ''Webcomic/KeychainOfCreation'' strip, causing the female onlookers to wince in sympathy.
* Some of the anthro insects in ''Webcomic/DreamwalkJournal'' get stung right in their NonMammalMammaries (amongst other places), but it's a subversion because (being an erotic comic) the stings inflict pleasure rather than pain.
* ''Webcomic/{{Exiern}}'' has a classic one: The main character Tiffany is a male barbarian hero who has been trapped in female form by an evil wizard. She wants to be a man again but since she's a barbarian she absolutely''hates'' the local priesthood. So her sidekick Peonie ties her to the altar--for her own good, of course--and orders the priests to attempt the ritual. After the inevitable failure Peonie admits in trepidation that she'd she'd been counting on WouldntHitAGirl to stave off retribution. Cut to the next page, where Peonie can't get over her shock that Tiffany "punched me in the boob"!
* XI elbows Teri in the breasts to get out of a hold in ''Webcomic/RipAndTeri''.
* There's a RunningGag in ''Webcomic/VenusEnvy'' where Zoe is hit in her [[{{Transsexual}} growing breasts and vestigial testes]] in quick succession.
* [[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=617 Son of a bitch, OW!]] [[Webcomic/QuestionableContent Right in the nipple!]]
* [[PsychoLesbian Gail]] attacks her nemesis with one in [[http://whenshewasbad.smackjeeves.com/comics/297539/6-20/ this]] ''Webcomic/WhenSheWasBad'' comic. Note that they both have mild SuperStrength (Owwwww!).
* In ''Webcomic/BakedGoods'' Bunnie's choice of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirBender''-style power would be boobie-bending. Which she then demonstrates by having [[http://bakedgoods.thecomicseries.com/comics/4 Dawnie's own breast hit her in the face]].
* In ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'', Agatha gets [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20110114 stabbed]] in the boob. Ouch! Luckily for her, her corset is [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20110124 heavily reinforced]]. A close look shows the injury uncomfortably close to the nipple, not that the boys are complaining.

[[folder: Western Animation]]
* Rare male example: In the penultimate episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' season 3, Brock Samson's nipple gets cut off.
* In one of the many ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' sketches, a PMS-ing [[WesternAnimation/SheRaPrincessOfPower She-Ra]] attacks a trio of villainesses. Two get standard deaths. The third has her breasts squeezed till they popped.
* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'': A stripper accidentally gets her breasts pierced by hypodermic needles, causing her implants to deflate. As soon as that happens, her mind clears and she says, "I remember now! I was going to be a civil engineer!"
** Also happens to Francine when she and Roger attempt to spice up their mundane lives by attending a party at the French consulate.
--> "Roger, that was terrible. We were the only people in period dress and your fake French accent got me punched in the boob."
** Another episode also features a brief gag where Stan accidenly elbows Francine, causing her to complain "You elbowed my boobie!"
* In ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', when Peter started kicking everything after seeing ''Film/RoadHouse'', Lois asked him not to kick her, [[{{Fetish}} unless it was her nipple]].
* ''StrokerAndHoop'': Hoop's mom is sent to women's prison for a crime she didn't commit. She consoles herself by claiming that a prison for elderly ladies can't be that bad and takes it all in stride, likening it to being roommates in college ... until her "roommate" threatens to cut her tits off.
* Subtle example in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra''. In a blink and you miss it moment during a fight with Equalist mooks, Asami hits a female Equalist in the chest with her electrified glove.
* In an episode of ''Gargoyles'', while engaging in a hand-to-hand catfight, Elisa kicked Demona square in her breasts.


[[folder: Real Life]]
* There is a report on the infamous rape case of Filipina actress Maggie de la Riva. According to an interview with the actress, during her ordeal, she was incapacited by her captors by means of punching her in several areas of her body, including one of her breasts, before they proceeded to rape her.
** During the filming of the movie ''The Maggie de la Riva Story'' which was based on the incident, actress Dawn Zulueta who played de la Riva reported that when that grisly scene was recreated, it actually led to real injuries and she actually had to be hospitalized.
* In addition to having her throat slashed, rumors abounded that Nicole Brown Simpson's ''breasts'' were deliberately slashed off in the attack as well-- however the [[http://www.lectlaw.com/files/cas45.htm coroner's report]] refutes these rumors entirely.
* The [[http://www.medievality.com/breast-ripper.html Breast Ripper]] torture device.
* The legend of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agatha_of_Sicily Saint Agatha of Sicily]] is infamous for stating that her breasts were cut off during her martyrdom. Unsurprisingly, she's the patron saint of breast cancer patients and wet nurses.
* WeirdOrWhat suggests that breast implants kept a woman from being killed when she was shot.
* Boob tag. Which is like regular tag, but the only legal tag is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin tagging another participant's breast]]. Typically only played by women.
No, you can't kiss them and make it better!
