[-[[caption-width-right:250: And now we're jealous of a 10 year old.]]-]

->''"Hey-wai-don't touch me! DON'T HUG ME! I'm not a doll, you know! I can't breathe- *mggggfffh*"''
-->-- '''[[FunSize Raspberyl]]''' getting picked up by [[CutenessProximity Sapphire]], ''VideoGame/Disgaea3AbsenceOfJustice''

OneHeadTaller, with a few inches on top (and [[BuxomIsBetter quite a few more in front]]).

Usually found in anime or manga: a usually short, [[HoYay usually]] male character becomes smooshed in the chest area of a taller female character. They get a [[HurricaneOfEuphemisms cleavage cushion. A push-up pillow. A rack resting place. A maternal muffler]], you get the picture...

If she's [[TeacherStudentRomance Hot For Student]], she may use this as an initial seduction tactic, but most of the time, the hugger is unaware of (or unable to see) the implications of the situation. This is often done for pure {{Fanservice}} value, but may also be used for comedy in one (or both) of two ways:
* The guy in question is [[ChildrenAreInnocent a little too young]] or [[ChasteHero innocent]] to appreciate the situation, and is more embarrassed than enjoying it (especially when it happens in public). In certain cases, the boy may be ''just'' old enough to appreciate the situation, but not old enough to control either [[RagingStiffie his reaction to it]] or his mortification at same.
* The poor boy is quite literally being smothered in the process, as the girl is ''really'' [[BuxomIsBetter well-endowed]].

Because of that last one, this is sometimes initiated from behind the victim instead, allowing both him to breathe and the audience to see his reaction better.

The name comes from a scene in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', where poor [[http://www.mangahere.co/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v07/c061/8.html Negi nearly gets drowned when several girls do this to him at once while he was partly submerged.]] [[CursedWithAwesome Poor, lucky bastard]]. On occasion, this can overlap IHaveBoobsYouMustObey.

See also FunbagAirbag and ThanksForTheMammary for accidental collisions of the type. Not to be confused with MarshmallowDream. (However it's only a matter of time before [[RuleThirtyFour they're mixed into one trope]].) Compare CryIntoChest and CooldownHug.

* In one Confused.com advert, [[SassyBlackWoman Bertha]] puts Cara's face in hers.
* A beer commercial had some guys at a nightclub thinking it would be a great joke to set up a short friend with a very tall woman as a dance partner. Cut to them looking on enviously as he's smooched into her chest for a slow dance.

[[folder:Card Games]]
* The ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' card [[http://magiccards.info/uh/en/3.html Bosom Buddy]].

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* An issue of ''ComicBook/{{Lobo}}'' combines this trope with AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever. He breaks up with a woman because she was too "flat", so she jumps into a vat of breast enlarging hormones that turns her into a GiantWoman, who exacts her revenge by smothering Lobo in her gargantuan cleavage.
* Astonishingly, ComicBook/PowerGirl herself is nearly on the receiving end of one of these during a [[spoiler:supervillain-induced]] hallucination.
* In ''Hate'', Buddy takes his elderly dad to a strip joint and is shocked to find him with his head in a dancer's chest. Thinking he's passed out, Buddy rushes up to the stage to get him, but instead he says to Buddy, "Can't you see I'm having the time of my life?"
* In 2011's ''ComicBook/HackSlash'' #4, Cassie does this to Vlad to get him to snap out of his slasher-induced altered state of mind.
* In ''[[ComicBook/MonicasGang Turma da Mônica Jovem]]'', [[http://30.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_l3vjpy6yLa1qbnzf6o1_500.png Mônica does this to Cebolinha.]]

[[folder:Comic Strips]]
* This happens to Jon in [[http://www.garfield.com/comic/1987/03/28 the March 28, 1987 strip]] of ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}''.

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* Disney had actually used this long before: in ''Disney/EducationForDeath'', '''UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler''' gets a taste of Princess Germany's Marshmallow Hell.
* In the film ''[[WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail Fievel Goes West]]'', there's one scene in particular where this trope occurred. As soon as Fievel enters into the saloon, he proceeds to nab a fork and plunge it into the... *ahem* hindquarters... of Cat R. Waul, causing him to jump several feet in the air, right through the roof above him (which was in turn the floor of the human saloon above them). As soon as he emerges, he is quickly grabbed by a rather affectionate woman who proceeds to put him through a Marshmallow Hell before he barely manages to escape and descend back into the saloon. The whole procedure is repeated at the end once more, though he suffers from MarshmallowHell only shortly before being stuck into a toddler outfit.
* In ''Anime/LittleNemoAdventuresInSlumberland'' (a children's movie musical which was, nevertheless, made in Japan), Nemo gets smushed between a dance instructor's enormous breasts several times ("Not '''again'''!") during [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mF3kufntdVA a sequence about learning to be a prince.]]
* In ''Disney/TheBlackCauldron'', young would-be warrior Taran, Princess Eilonwy, and minstrel Fflewddur Fflam travel to the house of three witches, trying to get the title cauldron before the movie's BigBad, the Horned King, can get his hands on it. The fattest and most voluptuous of the three witches develops a crush on Fflewddur, and at one point, proceeds to bury the horrified, skinny man right between her breasts. One of her sisters, tired of this lovey-dovey display, turns him into a frog in preparation for eating him... and the frog-Fflewddur gets completely smothered in the cleavage, desperately trying to wade his way out of there for several seconds of screentime. And that's just one of the two reasons why this is the first fully-animated Disney movie to ever get the PG rating...
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheLastUnicorn'', Schmendrick gets this treatment from the tree he's tied to, after his magic makes it decidedly more anthropomorphic.
-->'''Schmendrick:''' Oh, God, I'm engaged to a Douglas Fir!
* In ''Anime/WickedCity'', Giuseppe, the resident DirtyOldMan is fond of women, and he received one from a HighClassCallGirl. [[spoiler: Turn out the hell part is ''[[HoneyTrap literal]]'' as the call girl is a demon trying to kill him by [[LifeDrain absorbing him to her marshmallow body]]. If not for Makie, it would've costed Giuseppe's life.]]
* At the end of ''Anime/CastleInTheSky'', Ma Dola catches Sheeta in a big hug to comfort her over the loss of her pigtails. Sheeta's more upset about getting poked in the eye by stolen jewelry (in VictoriasSecretCompartment) than she is about getting smothered in a middle-aged woman's bosom.

* This sometimes is used as a tactic by female players in ''LARP/HumansVsZombies'' in order to either score a silent infection against a human, or in order to silently kill a zombie.

* OlderThanTelevision: ''Literature/TheTurnOfTheScrew'' by Henry James ends with [[spoiler:the governess smothering her ward to death in her bosom in order to protect him from ghosts.]]
* Parodied in ''Discworld/WyrdSisters''. After the fool [[spoiler:is stabbed... with a fake stage knife]], he ends up in Magrat's bosom, such that it is. There was some interesting dialog as they end up actually arguing about whether or not he's dead since, on the one hand, he thinks he's in heaven because there's boobs in his face, and on the other hand, dead people don't need to breathe.
** Implied to have occurred in ''Discworld/GuardsGuards'' with Sybil and the young man who's temporarily king of Ankh-Morpork. She's quite tall and curvy, so this is probably something she often has to be careful about.
--->She'd even danced with the, for want of a better word, new king, who had said some polite words to her although they had been rather muffled.
* This happens in the novel ''Literature/ColdMountain'', when Inman and Veasey are staying with a man and his several wives and offspring. One of the women, named Lila, does this to him because she wants to have sex with him. Fortunately, although they are (involuntarily, in Inman's case) married, it doesn't happen.
* ''Flashman in the Great Game''. This happens to {{Literature/Flashman}} after he's rescued from torture by an Indian queen. Unfortunately for the permanently-randy AntiHero, his hands are tied.
* In the Xanth novel ''Literature/ASpellForChameleon'', Bink is rescued from an angry centaur by said centaur's girlfriend, who pulls Bink close to protect him, pillowing his head on something. When Bink turns around, he's face-to-not-quite-face with those "pillows."
* ''Literature/ChakonaSpace'': During a FoodFight, Captain Foster tries to perform a tickle attack against one of his female Rakshani marines. She's smart enough to knock his arms out from under him, plunging his face between her chocolate cream pie coated breasts.
-->'''Neal''': "What a way to go."
* In one of the Leo Kessler novels, Sgt Schulze is talking to a BigBeautifulWoman when a shell goes off nearby, and his fellow soldiers look on in envy as he faceplants into her bosom.

* The Music/TomSmith song "Death by Wubbie", which originally had a slightly different name.

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* Professional Wrestler Wrestling/JillianHall has more done this a few times against mostly female opponents to humiliate, disgust and or attempt to smother them. One memorable time was in mocking Ashley Massaro, who was revealed to be on the cover of an up coming Playboy magazine. This actually doesn't ''always'' get a positive reaction from the fans in attendance, as Jillian has a habit of making the audience hate her. Though this is more for the fact that she [[HollywoodToneDeaf could kill several small children with her voice]]. At least she doesn't turn to [[LesYay other tactics]], like [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MqYxyQ4WQFY&feature=related fellow female wrestler Mickie James...]]
* Slightly more literal in [[Wrestling/DaffneyUnger Lucy Furr]]'s case, as she had a FallenAngel gimmick. She actually made T.H.A.I. pass out to it.
* Male examples with Wrestling/{{CZW}} alum Greg Excellent and the rotund Jester in the Keystone State Wrestling Alliance.
* Minka - best known as one of the porn stars who defeated The Outsiders in a [=joke/troll=] match on WCW - dabbled in valeting and wrestling back around the turn of the century under the name Satin. Her finisher was a chest-smothering reverse sleeper. While valeting she'd also do it to wrestlers who ended up with their head on the ring apron.

* Poetically implied in the Literature/SongOfSongs 1:13:
-->''A bundle of myrrh is my well-beloved unto me; he shall lie all night betwixt my breasts.'' (King James Version)

* In ''Theatre/{{Urinetown}}'', when Hope and Bobby first meet, Hope teaches Bobby how to listen to his heart. She first listens to his heart, then shoves his head into her chest so he can listen to her heart.

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* You does this to Kid in ''VisualNovel/{{Ever17}}'', although it is only mentioned in the text and doesn't have an accompanying visual.
* In ''VisualNovel/MajiDeWatashiNiKoiShinasai'', [[TheTease Momoyo]] sometimes subjects Yamato to this.
* Kurugaya does this to Kud in ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'', causing the poor girl to quickly grow dizzy from lack of air and Kurugaya to hurriedly adjust her, commenting that hugging her from a 45-degree angle is the best.
* This happens quite a bit in ''VisualNovel/MyHaremHeavenIsYandereHell'' to Yuuya.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* ''Blog/GaijinSmash'': Poor Azrael gets this from [[http://gaijinchronicles.com/2005/03/02/you-will-love-me/ one of his students]].
* Raku from ''WebAnimation/NekoSugarGirls'' once did this to a squirrel she found irresistibly adorable. It then commenced to [[RealityEnsues bite her]] and [[FromBadToWorse give her rabies]].

[[folder:Real Life]]
* At many Ren Fairs, "serving wenches" will do it as a joke. Particularly if the man in question is behaving like a cad. They even have a name for it, it's called a woobie - [[NamesTheSame no, not]] [[TheWoobie the trope]].
* Happens constantly in strip clubs. Some years ago, an extremely huge-busted model/stripper named Tawny Peaks was sued by a club patron alleging he suffered severe whiplash from one of these.
* This is a favorite tactic of many {{Drag Queen}}s around straight men in the audience when they interact cabaret style during shows. The bigger queens often don't even need additional padding to pull this off.

* This was sort of the case when Kristen Johnston won the Emmy for Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for ''Series/ThirdRockFromTheSun'' and hugged the presenter, Michael J. Fox. He's short, she's tall and was wearing heel shoes, so the head to breast level was just right. Or wrong, depending on your point of view.
* This is a fairly common technique in the RealLife world of UsefulNotes/{{BDSM}} (usually done on BoundAndGagged submissives), since it's a form of erotic titillation that conveniently also satisfies a submissive's desire for pain and humiliation.
