You think TrueLovesKiss is impressive? Hah, all that kiss can do is wake someone up. The most powerful kiss does the opposite: sending a person into a stiff, rigid, frozen state of shock, unable to move, talk, comprehend their surroundings, or remember their own name. Kiss-induced shock is severe enough that a ColonyDrop cannot snap them out of it. The condition can last anywhere from 24 seconds to 24 hours after the kiss, during which time they can expect to see lots of imaginary fireworks. An AccidentalKiss or FirstKiss will exacerbate the symptoms.

This affliction overwhelmingly favors males.

Not to be confused with KissOfDeath. Compare DistractedByTheSexy.

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''Manga/PeachGirl'': When Kairi kisses Momo in the first episode, she reacts by going stiff and staring straight ahead in utter shock. Kairi thinks this means she liked it and tries to kiss her again but just receives a GroinAttack from Momo for his attempt.
* In ''Anime/SonicX'', episode 45, Rouge defeats Tails in the face-off using this as her secret weapon. Which is probably referencing a scene in ''VideoGame/SonicBattle'' where if you lose a fight with Rouge, she kisses you.
--> '''Tails''': Wh-wha?
--> '''Rouge''': Aww. You're blushing.
* In ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', Shinji found his and Asuka's FirstKiss absolutely... breathtaking. But that was because she held his nose. His breath "tickled". He turns several interesting colors and stands stunned for a good half minute after she disengages, long enough for Asuka to conclude kissing is a bad way to kill time. [[spoiler:During Asuka's MindRape, it's revealed that the kiss meant a lot to her and she was angry he didn't embrace her during their kiss.]]
* When Kurokawa spontaneously kisses Tomoe in Hinako Takanaga's ''Manga/{{Challengers}}'', the latter is so stunned that he faints, mainly because he and Kurokawa are [[BoysLove both men]].
* Sana almost has an HeroicBSOD in ''Manga/KodomoNoOmocha'', when Hayama steals her first kiss.
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima''
** This is used for Negi's second kiss with Nodoka, and it lasts at least until he meets up with everyone else again. He does this in several of the other Pactios as well. You'd think the shock would wear out after a little while.
** ''Negi'' induces it on Chachamaru in chapter 263, but that was extreme kissing.
** There's Asuna after the Kissing Terminator Incident.
** Paru-sama's infamous Nugi: "He boasts an impressive 23.5 centimetres!"
** It happens to Negi again in chapter 340 when [[spoiler:Ayaka]] kisses Negi with so much force, that not only does it leave Negi twitching on the floor, but almost [[BeyondTheImpossible reverses the Pactio!]]
* Kakeru goes into this state in ''Anime/OnegaiMyMelody'' after he saves Uta from being kissed by Dar-chan -- who possesses the Hiiragi brothers -- twice; he pushes Uta away and takes the kiss in her place.
* In ''Manga/HatsukoiLimited'' this happens to [[spoiler: Megane-kun]] (can't remember his actual name at the moment) when [[spoiler: Dobahshi]] makes the first move. In his defense, he had just worked up the courage to ask her to hold hands.
* Nagisa faints just from getting a kiss on the forehead from Shizuma in the first episode of ''LightNovel/StrawberryPanic''.
* It's perfectly understandable that ''Manga/DGrayMan'''s [[spoiler:Allen]] would react like this when [[spoiler:Road]] kissed him; last time they met she [[spoiler:''stabbed him in the eye'']].
* When we first see Urd on Earth in ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'', she's pretending to be the clerk at a drugstore (with a Naughty Nurse outfit on) when Keiichi comes in to buy cold medicine for Belldandy. When the camera angle changes, we see the real clerk on the floor, [=KOed=], with a big grin on his face and a LipstickMark on his cheek.
* Sunako Nakahara of ''Manga/TheWallflower'' went into severe catatonia after her kiss with Kyouhei, and often doesn't even need another kiss to go into it again, now. All one has to do is mention something that ''sounds'' like the word "kiss" to send her into a rampage or a relapse of catatonia.
* When Ryo Saeba of ''Manga/CityHunter'' plants a kiss on the forehead of his [[TheMasochismTango true love]] and assistant Kaori during the second series finale, the only reaction that Kaori can muster is for her [[HighPressureEmotion to blush, with her skin literally becoming RED HOT under the rain to cause steam to literally rise from her skin. Kaori is later bedridden with a nasty cold as a result but when she recalls that "moment", her skin yet again becomes RED HOT with a fever of 107.6.]]
* In chapter 75 of the ''Manga/HajimeteNoAku'' manga, Jiro is seemingly unaffected by Kyoko [[AccidentalKiss accidentally kissing him]] on the cheek. When Kyoko turns to him to demand he tell their [[EveryoneCanSeeIt teasing friends]] the kiss was accidental, he is still in the same position. Then, [[FunnyMoments his legs give out]].
-->''"AAAH! '''[[IThinkYouBrokeHim SHE BROKE AKUNO]]!'''"''
* Shichika from ''LightNovel/{{Katanagatari}}'' not only passes out after Togame kisses him, but also [[EasyAmnesia forgets everything he's ever learned about swordplay]], which was [[InvokedTrope Togame's intention]]. He reverts to the same dazed state when she offers to make him "forget" again.
* A rare dramatic occurrence happens with Ryo of ''Manga/{{FAKE}}'', after the second time Dee kisses him (not counting the FakeOutMakeOut). This is because Dee was unexpectedly intense, telling Ryo to "Never dismiss [him] again" after Ryo treated the first kiss as a joke and Ryo was taken off guard that Dee was "such a good kisser".
* In episode 7 of ''Manga/PrincessPrincess'' [[HoYay Yuujirou kisses Tooru]] to drive [[StalkerWithACrush Sayaka]] away and after the kiss Tooru is shown to stare ahead with a shocked look on his face.
* In ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero'' Queen Henrietta offers Saito her hand to kiss, but Saito misunderstands what is meant by "kiss" and instead sweeps the queen off her feet in a deep embrace and kiss that leaves her stunned.
* In ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' Sheryl sneaks into the command center of the Macross Quarter to watch the test run of the "Ranka Attack". Someone asks where security is. Cue cut to said security guard, who is stunned into pure bliss by the kiss Sheryl planted on his cheek.
* In the manga version of ''Manga/MysteriousGirlfriendX'', Urabe manages to do this to Tsubaki even though she only [[TwentyPercentMoreAwesome kissed the other side of her photo that he was kissing.]]
* During a flashback to Alma Torran in ''Manga/MagiLabyrinthOfMagic'', Sheba literally melts when her lover Solomon kisses her on the forehead.
* In ''Manga/YonaOfTheDawn'', before temporarily parting ways in chapter 137, [[spoiler: Yona plants a ForcefulKiss on ChildhoodFriend Hak,]] who's loved her for years and was completely resigned to having no romantic future with her. His initial response was to stare in shock, completely frozen with his [[JawDrop jaw dropped]].
* Ash of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' is always left speechless and sometimes in a daze when a girl (and, on one occasion, Team Rocket) kisses him. And it's his friends who have the [[ReactionShot peculiar reactions]] instead...
* By the time Saiba Rei shows up in ''Manga/DigimonVTamer01'', Yagami Tachi hasn't seen a girl likely for months, so her explaining his reaction. Her reaction is half happiness in seeing another human being and half gratitude for his observation and planning allowing Zeromaru to save her from some [[ToServeMan hungry bugs]].
* ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'' features it as a ''plot point'': [[spoiler:To stop Kayano's tentacle-induced rampage, Nagisa goes and delivers a 15-hit kiss to knock her out, so Koro-sensei can remove her tentacles]].

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Scrooge [=McDuck=] had this intentionally used to stun for a critical moment in ''[[Comicbook/TheLifeAndTimesOfScroogeMcDuck The Prisoner of White Agony Creek]]''. Goldie wasn't expecting it to become a rare case of ''mutual'' post kiss catatonia, though.
* ''Franchise/ArchieComics'': Archie Andrews.
* At the end of ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}} The Legionary'', Asterix and Obelix get a SmoochOfVictory on the nose from Panacea for bringing back her fiance Tragicomix. Obelix faints, but recovers in time for the ending banquet. Asterix on the other hand is seen sitting in a tree with a dazed expression.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11886910/1/Gankona-Unnachgiebig-Unità Gankona, Unnachgiebig, Unità]]'': Let's just say Italy sent Germany and Japan into one after he french-kissed both of them.
* Happens several times in ''Fanfic/KyonBigDamnHero'', including once to [[spoiler:Haruhi after starting a ForcefulKiss via NecktieLeash with Kyon]] and once to [[spoiler:Kyon, whom Mikuru(big) kissed]] a few hours earlier.
* A very innocent example happens in ''TroperWorks/ThePrivateDiaryOfElizabethQuatermain'', when the title character kisses her self-appointed protector on the top of his head out of gratitude. He's stunned into silence.
* [[Series/DoctorWho Chibi!Doctor]] seems to [[http://jesidres.deviantart.com/art/Whooligans-In-her-Kiss-61982562 get this]]
* In ''FanFic/DragonAgeTheCrownOfThorns'', Alistair goes through this after Gwen Cousland kisses him, right after [[spoiler:the dwarven noble protagonist sets things up so that Gwen is at the door and hears Alistair ask him for ideas as to how to give Gwen the Lothering rose.]]
* Happens to [[GenderFlip Harriet Lily Potter]] at ''least'' once with much hilarity in ''FanFic/AButterflyEffect''.
* Happens to [[GenderFlip Cassidy McGuire]] on Lyoko in ''FanFic/ReturnToThePastNOW!''
* [[spoiler: Luso]] after [[spoiler: Maria]] kissed him on the cheek in ''FanFic/TheTaintedGrimoire''.
* ''Fanfic/DeathNoteEquestria'' has Twilight go into one of these when [[spoiler: Fluttershy]] kisses her for the first time. Of course, this is her during her MemoryGambit -- it's hard to say if Kira!Twilight would react the same.
* In [[Fanfic/ChildrenOfTime "Dynamics of a Point"]], Beth Lestrade delivers an ArmorPiercingSlap to Literature/SherlockHolmes and immediately regrets it. She apologizes with her first kiss to him, and he can only stare at her, shocked that she's furious with him one moment and then kissing him the next.
* In the ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'', after Private RunningGag saves the core cast of the Shining Armor Arc from a [[TheEmpire Hooviet]] attack squad by impersonating [[BigBad General-Admiral Makarov]] over the radio, his "[[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend just a friend, honest]]" Private [[TheMedic Garnet Chambers]] gives him a BigDamnKiss that freezes him up so much he has to be dragged onto the shuttle when the group evacuates the area (he also seems to not register Cadence promoting him on the spot).
* In ''Fanfic/WakingNightmares'', Derpy suffers a bit of mental burnout when Painis Cupcake (aka Soldier suffering from a bizarre mental affliction) smooches her. Seeing as Painis primarily interacts with others by trying to ''eat'' them, this exception is highly notable. [[spoiler:They end up as a couple later.]]
--> '''Soldier''': I am Painis Cupcake. I will ''smooch'' you.
* Shy and nerdy research wizard Ponder Stibbons gets this when Johanna expresses her fondness for him in Fanfic/NatureStudies. The idea that the attractive red-haired Assassin might be attracted to him has not really gotten that far into his head, so when she kisses him for the first time...
* In the ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' fanfic ''Fanfic/TheUltimateEvil'', the first ForcefulKiss given by Shendu to [[VillainousCrush Valerie Payne]] leaves her so shocked that she can't make herself do anything to prevent him from escaping from the Tibetian temple with the Pan'Ku Box.
** After Shendu has told Valerie of the fate of [[spoiler:Lo Mei]] and why he became attracted towards her, he kisses her and is slightly given in. After he leaves, she's shocked for a good while because of the revelations and her giving in.
* Happens to a filly Twilight when Shining Armor and Princess Cadance kiss her cheeks in ''Webcomic/TwilightsFirstDay'' [[http://muffinshire.deviantart.com/art/Comic-Twilight-s-First-Day-5-354304227 part 5]]. It lasts for a couple seconds.
* A downplayed example shows up in ''[[Fanfic/HotspringSouls Slice of Souls!]]'' with [[spoiler:Solaire]] after he gets a surprise kiss from [[spoiler:Lady Maria.]]
* In ''FanFic/NarutoTheSecretSongsOfTheNinja,'' [[spoiler:Hinata]] gives Naruto a kiss on the cheek [[MotivationalKiss as "a good luck charm"]] after he confesses his insecurities to her in the lead-up to his epic duel against [[spoiler:Gaara]]. She blushes, stammers a goodbye and runs for it while he's left staring after her in shock, gingerly touching his face where she kissed him.
* This happens to Toji in ''FanFic/TheSecondTry'' when Hikari gave him a kiss before the civilian evacuation. By the time Shinji and Asuka went home, he still hadn't moved an inch.
* ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust'': [[spoiler:Rei]] gives [[spoiler:Kaworu]] a kiss under the mistletoe during the Christmas special. He is temporarily rendered incapable of thought.
* In ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/8793565/chapters/20159878 How the Light Gets In]]'', a recently resurrected Laurel is traumatized by her death and ResurrectionSickness but feels well enough to kiss her husband, Dean. The kiss starts chaste but gets increasingly passionate, leaving him rattled and a little dazed when she suddenly changes the subject.

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* In ''Disney/{{Bambi}}'', this happens to the title character as well as his friends Thumper and Flower when they get "twitterpated" by their respective female mates. Unfortunately for Bambi, his catatonic state gets rudely interrupted by Ronno, a rival male deer who challenges him for Faline.
* ''WesternAnimation/WallE'' seems to go through one of these when EVE first kisses him, even if the "kiss" is an actual shock of static electricity...
* [[WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts Mickey]] goes through one of these after he's kissed by Minnie on ''WesternAnimation/MickeyDonaldGoofyTheThreeMusketeers''.
** Generally, Disney has a few instances of these in their older cartoons.
* Stanley, the title character of ''WesternAnimation/ATrollInCentralPark'', overdoes it in response to ''a toddler'' kissing his nose.
* A [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments hilarious moment]] in ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'' when [[spoiler:Spanish Buzz]] kisses Woody twice on the cheeks.
* A hug-instead-of-kiss variation for ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2'', when [[spoiler:Po hugs Tigress]].
* Hiccup momentarily freezes in ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' after [[spoiler: Astrid]]'s ShutUpKiss.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rango}}'' plays with this trope. One of the characters, Beans, has a "condition" that causes her to go catatonic (and amnesic) for a moment whenever she gets angry or scared. At one point, she goes catatonic, and ''then'' Rango kisses her on the cheek and quickly leaves, [[spoiler:but she comes out of it smoothly and has full memory of what happened, showing that she was faking it]].
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rio}}'' After Jewel plants one on Blu, he completely blisses out for a few moments, his body going on autopilot.
* In ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'' 2, Quasimodo's LoveInterest plants a chaste kiss on his forehead. The poor fellow then completely forgets to breathe, resulting in him fainting on the floor a few seconds later, his face still plastered with a blissful smile.
--> '''Victor''': [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments I hope it's not contagious]].
* ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'': After his first kiss with Jasmine, Aladdin falls over backwards with a sigh, letting the Magic Carpet catch him.
* Another hug variation in ''WesternAnimation/{{Megamind}}''. Obviously, since Megamind has never been close to anyone, he has never received any physical contact whatsoever. When Roxanne hugs him as Bernard, though, he is so stunned that he takes a moment or two before responding.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheBookOfLife'', [[spoiler:Maria appears briefly disoriented after her BigDamnKiss with Manolo. Considering the context, it's probably justified.]]
* In ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'', this happens to Megara after Hercules kisses her on the cheek.

[[folder:Films -- Live Action]]
* This trope is used [[spoiler: twice]] as a distraction in the 2008 ''Film/GetSmart'' movie.
* ''Film/TheGoonies'': Mikey being kissed accidentally by Andy in a cave while Stephanie is watching. Then Mikey walks dizzy afterwards.
-->'''Stef:''' ''(Andy has accidentally kissed Mikey)'' OK, you kissed. Now tell.\\
'''Andy:''' There's something weird.\\
'''Stef:''' What? What is it?\\
'''Andy:''' Does Brand wear braces?\\
'''Andy:''' ''(Stef bursts into laughter)'' Why are you laughing? Stef, it was beautiful.\\
'''Stef:''' Next time you kiss him, do it with your eyes open. It's a whole different experience.
* In ''Film/{{Hitch}}'', after Albert and Allegra kiss for the first time, Albert gets this huge grin on his face kind of wanders down the street.
* From ''Film/InAndOut'', Peter [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1iC_vLICPsg unexpectedly kissing]] Howard. Peter even holds his arms for a bit afterward, like he's making sure Howard won't fall over.
* ''Film/MeetMeInStLouis'' has a rare female example. After John kisses Esther, she says something stupid and wanders back to her house in a daze with an idiotic grin on her face. When her mother says, "Your ice cream is getting cold," Esther dreamily responds, "Isn't it?" Then when her mother asks if there's something wrong with her, Esther thoughtlessly replies, "Yes, Mama," and then goes to say something, but stops. It takes her two youngest sisters mocking her to snap her out of it.
* In ''Film/WomanOfTheYear,'' Tess has a form of this after Sam kisses her goodbye at the airport. She is clearly distracted when speaking to her aunt and secretary afterward, and she actually bumps into the door as she heads out toward the waiting plane.
* In ''Film/MyGirl 2'', the title character shares her first kiss with her uncle's stepson just before she goes home from her visit. Afterwards, the boy walks through the airport looking completely blissed out and dazed.
* The film ''Film/{{Supergirl}}'': Supergirl/Linda walks around in a daze for a while after Ethan [[KissingUnderTheInfluence kisses her after being put under a love spell]].
* In ''Film/SpiderMan1'' it happens twice.
** After the first kiss between MJ and Spider-Man (Peter Parker), both are so gobsmacked at how good it had felt they go silent. They leave their mouths hanging open and eyes closed and MJ reverts to a blushing, giggling school girl.
** When the two kiss for the second time (MJ thinking it is their first, being ignorant to Peter's secret identity) they display the same symptoms.
* In the 2005 film ''Film/JustFriends''. Samantha James French kisses Mike Brander (who has a massive crush on her) to bribe him. As a result Mike faints from glee.
* The film ''Mask of Zorro''. After Zorro beats Eléna in sword fighting and corners her he kisses her. Eléna is left speechless and looking flushed.
* In ''Film/AForeignAffair'', Phoebe is so taken with her three kisses that she waltzes into the wrong room with a man there, wondering why she’s at the foot of his bed.
* In ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'', when Marian Ravenwood kisses Sallah goodbye, he stands stunned for a few seconds, before smiling broadly and walking off set, boisterously singing, [[Theatre/HMSPinafore "A British tar is a soaring soul, as free as a mountain bird..."]]
* Bertram in ''Film/BallOfFire'' suffers from this when Sugarpuss shows him what "yum yum" is. She kisses him three times until he loses balance and collapses into an armchair. Then he rushes out of the room in embarrassment and arousal to calm himself down and returns, shyly asking Sugarpuss to do it again. This fourth kiss makes him wander around with a dazed grin on his face, making his work colleagues realise that he's developing a crush on Sugarpuss. Considering that he's a [[{{adorkable}} shy, socially-awkward]] professor of English language that has no friends other than the professors he works with, those "yum yum" kisses were probably his {{first|kiss}}.

* Literature/HarryPotter suffers ''pre''-Kiss Catatonia in ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix The Order of the Phoenix]]'', getting scared stiff when Cho comes at him under the mistletoe (he's pretty stunned afterwards, but not so badly that he can't move).
** This takes on a much more sinister slant with how a person reacts after getting the Dementor's Kiss. [[spoiler:Their soul is sucked out forever, leaving them an EmptyShell.]]
** In ''Order Of The Phoenix'' Hermione [[MotivationalKiss exploits this trope]] by giving Ron a [[ShipTease kiss for good luck]] before his first Quidditch match so he'll be too dazed for a while and won't notice the "Weasley is our king" badges the Slytherins are wearing to psych him out.
** In ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows Deathly Hallows]]'', Ron is described as being a bit starry-eyed (well, took a Bludger to the back of the head) after he and Hermione (''[[TheBigDamnKiss finally]]'') have a serious kiss.
* Creator/PiersAnthony has featured some examples of this in some of his series, as a side-effect of the general freak-out effect that exists in some of the worlds he creates.
* In the fourth book of the ''[[Literature/PercyJacksonandtheOlympians Percy Jackson]]'' series, [[spoiler:Annabeth]] gives Percy a kiss as he goes off on a presumably suicidal mission. He sits there in a daze trying to remember his own name for a while until he hears approaching doom.
* The only account in [[KingArthur Arthuriana]] of a woman donning armor has her pretending to be an attacking knight in order to startle her [[CourtlyLove suitor]] out of his rapturous contemplation of her beauty.
* A strange woman meets Jerin's eyes in ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'', then lifts his modesty veil and kisses him soundly before scarpering. This has the effect of basically stunning him as he berates himself for letting a random woman kiss him and wonders if he's a slut. When Eldest sees him with his hand pressed to his mouth she assumes he's about to be sick. In the narration he says that yeah, mental illness might be part of it.
* In ''LightNovel/UndefeatedBahamutChronicle'', Lux suffers this after being kissed by Celis. He was expecting a chaste kiss on the cheek or forehead, but Celis was previously taught by [[ShipperOnDeck Yoruka]] how to kiss someone, so she instead pushes him down on the sofa and kisses him full on the lips for over ten seconds. Unsurprisingly, he's unconscious for the rest of the scene.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* In ''Series/{{Smallville}}'', Clark has the unfortunate habit of dumbly standing there after a girl kisses him, although the symptoms usually don't last too long.
** Maxima's kiss literally knocks men into catatonia.
* ''Series/DoctorWho''
** In the episode "Smith and Jones", Martha is stunned when The Doctor gives her a kiss -- but purely so he can leave some of his DNA on her lips to fool a baddie.
** The Tenth Doctor himself tends to go glassy-eyed for a few seconds when he's unexpectedly kissed -- see "New Earth" and "The Girl in the Fireplace".
--->'''Tenth Doctor:''' ''([[InstantSoprano squeaky-voiced]])'' Yeah. Still got it.
** The Twelfth Doctor has this reaction in "Dark Water" when Missy snogs the living daylights out of him. This being [[HatesBeingTouched the Twelfth Doctor]], his catatonia is not one of bliss, but rather one of confusion and horror.
--->'''Twelfth Doctor:''' ''(whispers)'' Clara...is it over now?
* Louie suffers a version of this in an episode of the sitcom ''Series/{{Taxi}}'', guest-starring Danny Devito's real-life wife Rhea Perlman.
* Done in small in an episode of ''Series/TheNanny'' after Fran and Maxwell reenact a scene from ''Romeo & Juliet''. Stunned, Fran stumbles all the way back down the stairs due to weak knees.
* In a episode of ''Series/{{Cheers}}'', Rebecca, in a the-hell-with-it moment (she had no genuine intentions), passionately kissed Cliff Clavin right on the lips. Cliff stood in the bar all night in a catatonic daze, muttering "Thank You" over and over...
* The Piemaker of ''Series/PushingDaisies'' is particularly prone to this. Not only does he freeze up when his girlfriend, [[BlessedWithSuck whom he can't touch]], manages to plant one on him, but his brain turns off at the mere mention:
-->'''Ned:''' You can't touch me.\\
'''Chuck:''' So a kiss is out of the question?\\
'''Ned:''' ''(long pause)'' ... I've lost my train of thought.
* ''Series/ICarly'': Freddie did this twice in ''iSaved Your Life'', when Carly finally kissed Freddie on his bed, the show abruptly cuts into a commercial break. When the scene resumes, Freddie became stiff and wide-eyed as he and Carly continue kissing throughout the half-hour absence of his mother. In the extended version, Freddie was dumbfounded and even tased himself to prove that Carly had really kissed him.
* Series/{{Chuck}} goes through this when Sarah unexpectedly pins him on the floor and kisses him in "Chuck Versus the Truth". (It was all for [[BodyguardCrush the cover]]!)
* This happens in one episode of ''Series/ThePractice'' between characters Helen Gamble (played by Lara Flynn Boyle) and Richard Bay(played by Jason Kravits), who received the kiss from her.
* ''Series/LoisAndClark'': Happened to Lois after her first ''[[FakeOutMakeOut real]]'' kiss with Clark. So much so, that it took a frickin' ''car bomb'' to snap her out of it.
* Not exactly romantic: ''Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway'' had Mike [=McShane=] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OjtcE2PTAU#t=2m35s plant a big wet one]] on Brad Sherwood. It probably would've lasted longer had Brad not been buzzed out.
* In ''Series/TheCityHunter'', Na Na freezes when Yun Sung unexpectedly kisses her in the second episode. She only snaps out of it when he then [[{{Jerkass}} sticks a hundred dollar bill in her dress]]. A judo beatdown then ensues.
* ''Series/{{Friends}}'': After Chandler pleads for someone to kiss him for New Year's, Joey plants one just to shut him up, which stuns Chandler.
* ''Series/TheBradyBunch''
** Marcia meets and gets a kiss (on the cheek) from her teen idol, Desi Arnaz, Jr. TheTag showed her still walking around in a daze a week later, holding her cheek and wearing a huge dopey grin on her face.
** When Bobby gets his first kiss he sees skyrockets. Later he goes to her house and kisses the girl who kissed him to see if it repeats; it does.
* An adorable one on ''Series/TrueJacksonVP'' after True and Jimmy, while celebrating, accidentally kiss. He bashfully says goodbye and leaves. True waves goodbye and then faints after he leaves with a lovestruck grin on her face.
* On ''Series/{{Castle}}'', the titular writer and his muse are pretending to be a drunk couple in order to sneak into a warehouse to save Detectives Ryan and Esposito. To fool the look out, Castle draws Beckett into a long, steamy kiss. When the guard falls for it and turns around to go, Beckett whirls around and whacks him while Castle just stands there, too wowed by the kiss to even care. Then he mutters, "That was amazing" and Beckett gives him an awkward look, causing him to fumble and say, [[BlatantLies "T-The way you hit that guy, that was amazing."]]
* On ''Series/NickArcade'', the enemy space in Cape Cosmos had the Giant Smooch Aliens, who would slobber Mikey with kisses whenever he landed on it. And considering that they're NOT [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe Green Skinned Space Babes]]...
* ''Series/TheMonkees'': In "Monstrous Monkee Mash" a vampire's niece uses a necklace to seduce three of the four Monkees, all of whom have the exact same response of freezing in place and wonder.
-->'''[=Davy/Peter/Micky=]:''' What a kiss. I've never felt this way before.
-->'''Lorelei:''' You fool, it was not my kiss, but the magic necklace!
-->'''[=Davy/Peter/Micky=]:''' What a necklace. I've never felt this way before.
* In the episode "Eagleton" of ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'', [[RatedMForManly Ron Swanson]] tells [[StepfordSmiler Chris]] that it's his birthday on Friday after telling him to freeze Leslie and April's bank accounts so they can't [[BirthdayHater throw him a surprise birthday party]]. Chris responds by wishing Ron a happy birthday, then [[HoYay kissing him straight on the lips]]. This leaves the staunchly conservative and libertarian Ron frozen in [[http://i.imgur.com/jUQ8w01.jpg?1 this position]] for God knows how long.
-->'''Ron''': I'm ending this right now, I'm just gonna [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere leave early and go home.]]
* Happens with both sides in ''Series/{{Jonas}}''. After Joe and Stella share a {{Slap Slap Kiss}} in the episode "Double Date", they both get so distracted that Stella grabs a watermellon instead of her purse and Joe accidentally falls down trying to sit.
** Again in the same episode when they kiss in the hallway resulting in [[UnfortunateItemSwap Joe's guitar and Stella's purse ending up in each other's hands.]]
* ''Series/PersonOfInterest''. Detective Fusco gets a mild case after getting a SmoochOfVictory from supermodel Karolína Kurková.
* ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'': Arwin tends to have this reaction whenever Carey kisses him. One episode actually has everyone present surprised when he takes a kiss ''without'' fainting... for a few seconds.
* ''Series/{{Wizards of Waverly Place}}'': Zeke faints every time Harper kisses him.
* ''Series/ElChavoDelOcho'' plays this straight, and just plays with this in the same Paty episode. When Paty kissed Kiko, he fainted, prompting Chavo to wake him with bucket-full of water. When Chavo and Chilndrina asked about why he fainted, he told them what happened, and Chilindrina tried it with Chavo, which produced this exchange:
-->''(After kissing chavo and he does not faint)''
-->'''Chilindrina:''' Chavo, didn't you feel anything?
-->'''Chavo:''' I did.
-->'''Chilindrina:''' ''(hopeful)'' What?
-->'''Chavo:''' Anger.
-->'''Chilindrina:''' [[InelegantBlubbering (Cries angrily.)]]
-->'''Chavo:''' What's wrong now?
-->'''Chilindrina:'''' None of your business! (Continues crying.)

* ''{{Theatre/Elisabeth}}'' actually has an example that overlaps with the KissOfDeath in the Toho production with Shirota Yuu as Death and Furukawa Yuta as Rudolf. Inverted in that Rudolf is the one that initiates the kiss, and also the one who's left staring blankly as Death walks away. [[spoiler: He then shoots himself.]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* In the combined ending to the ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames'', Link goes into one of these after receiving a SmoochOfVictory from Princess Zelda.
* Happens to Kirby in the ''VideoGame/Kirby64TheCrystalShards'' good ending, where Ribbon kisses Kirby. Cue the hearts that float into the sky.
* [[DefrostingIceQueen Miranda]] is rather confused after her first kiss with [[BelligerentSexualTension Renegade!Shepard]] in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2''.

* In ''VisualNovel/YoJinBo'', Sayori can give Ittosai a kiss on the cheek which turns him into a "moaning zombie" - and has a similar effect on the rest of the guys who are looking on.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* This happens a lot to Dave Jones of the webcomic ''Webcomic/CollegeRoomiesFromHell'' early on, and it didn't require a kiss (though that worked as well), just seeing (or thinking about) any of the female characters in something sexy. The other characters called this phenomenon a "brainwarp".
* Gilgamesh Wulfenbach gets a mild form of this in ''WebComic/GirlGenius'', when Agatha [[SmoochOfVictory on an adrenalin rush lays one on him]]. He's still with it enough to react to the imminent danger that shows up soon after, though.
* This was used as a battle tactic by a mind-controlled Mai Shiranui in [[http://www.bobandgeorge.com/gamer/index.php?comic=67&num=3 this]] ''Captain Gamer: OOC'' strip (#68), to which the title character practically [[LampshadeHanging hangs a lampshade]], monologuing, "Hormones. My greatest weakness!"
* ''Webcomic/UserFriendly'', starting [[http://ars.userfriendly.org/cartoons/?id=20050916 here]], including the next strip, and then continuing after a different story arc.
* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', both Durkon and Vaarsuvius are caught in a version of this after Belkar kisses V while in a drunk stupor on New Year.
* Vincent of ''WebComic/{{Precocious}}'' stumbles around in a loopy daze after his puppy-love crush Autumn kisses him. Still leaves Vincent's love unrequited, though: [[http://www.precociouscomic.com/archive/comic/2010/08/16 Autumn just wanted her blackmail folder back.]]
* Faye falls victim in [[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1725 this]] ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'' strip.
* Vincent in ''[[WebComic/TheCyantianChronicles Darius]]'' [[http://cyantian.net/blog/2011/12/14/12142011/ faints]] after getting a ShutUpKiss from a vixen, telling him to pretend to have fun beforehand.
* Peanut from ''Webcomic/{{Housepets}}'', after receiving a (platonic-ish) kiss from Grape, who he'd nursed a crush on since ever. Not so much catatonia as motor function failure, but he doesn't mind.
* Occurs in ''Webcomic/{{Drowtales}}'' after years of ShipTease between [[spoiler:Faen and Ariel]] [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?sid=9466 results in]] a BigDamnKiss. [[spoiler:Ariel]] is in a daze for [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?sid=9469 a good page afterward]].
* Deconstructed for slightly dark laughs in ''Webcomic/TheBoyInPinkEarmuffs''--turns out the top of a rock is ''not'' the best place to have this happen to you, as poor Danny learns after JJ kisses him.
-->'''Danny:''' It's okay. These bottles broke my fall. You don't happen to have, like, 13 or 14 bandaids do you?
** Later, it happens ''again'' when Danny's getting patched up in JJ's bathroom. This time, JJ stops him from falling and quips "maybe I should ''stop'' kissing you." Danny is immediately horrified at the idea.
* In ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'' Kat suffers this briefly [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/?p=1434 after a kiss]] from Paz.
* Happens in ''Webcomic/LeagueOfSuperRedundantHeroes'' in [[http://superredundant.com/wp-content/uploads/2013-11-14-Strip-288.jpg these panels]].
* A non-funny example occurs in ''Webcomic/{{Avialae}}'', where Gannet literally loses consciousness during his first kiss with Bailey. In this case, it isn't actually the kiss itself that causes him to pass out but the "tightness" he feels in his chest turning out to be his [[{{Sarashi}} chest/wing bindings]] being too tight. Bailey has to cut them open for him to regain consciousness, and subsequently avoids him for three weeks afterwards out of guilt/sheer awkwardness.

* ''Literature/SailorNothing'': Himei uses this trope to stall Seiki while she [[ThisIsSomethingHesGotToDoHimself has something she's got to do herself]].

[[folder:Western Animation]]

The others laugh at him while he's still frozen, since they realize ([[KidAnova Odd especially]]) "He'll need some time to get over that one."
* ''[[ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} It's Your First Kiss, Charlie Brown]]'' has the title character finally getting a shot at kissing The Little Red Haired Girl at the school Homecoming Dance. The kiss puts him into a hallucination-filled euphoria which ends with him waking up the next day, with no memory of what happened after the kiss. Linus informs him that, during his blackout, he was the life of the party, amazing everyone with his dancing skills. Charlie Brown is both disturbed by his [[IdentityAmnesia "split personality" moment]], and annoyed by the fact that he doesn't remember what was probably the greatest night of his life. [[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome He's not the only one.]]
* It takes Katara a while to realize her ShutUpKiss has ended on ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. She then spends several moments gazing after [[spoiler:Aang]], blushing madly, and has to be reminded they're [[spoiler:in the middle of an invasion]].
* And, in a scene that seems to be directly inspired by that one, in ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' Peter stares after [[spoiler:Gwen]] after she kisses him and runs off. After a moment he composes himself enough to whisper "Wow..."

* ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'': Happens at the end of "My Dinner With Elmyra". After Elmyra [[BigDamnKiss plants a big one on Montana Max]], he was left shocked and then went to his limo, saying to himself:

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' had Hoagie turned into a teenager through mad science. Teen enemy Cree falls for him and after she kisses him, all he can say is "N-i-i-i-ice," even while his team mates are being attacked.
* Sheldon on ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot'' plays this trope exceptionally well in the Christmas episode, especially since it wasn't even on the mouth, it was just a peck on the cheek. He is frozen in position then slowly and rigidly tumbles down the stairs.
* Happens to Spike in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' when kissed on the cheek by Rarity.

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012'':
** This occurs when April O'Neil kisses Donatello on the cheek for finding a retro-mutagen, leaving him with hearts in his eyes and babbling like an idiot before he faints...and then as an ImagineSpot that must be seen to be believed.
-->'''Donatello:''' I LOOOOOOVE BEING A TURTLE!!!!!
** Occurs again in the third season, where this time, it's on the lips. Donnie's reaction is priceless.
-->'''Donatello:''' I understand... ''nothing''.
