[[caption-width-right:350:Hey, who turned out the lights?]]

So, there's two (or more) {{mooks}} attacking TheHero at once (hint: ''highly'' recommended in the EvilOverlordList). How to take them both down? Well, if they're close enough together, UseYourHead! Or rather, use ''their'' heads: knock their heads into each other and [[DoubleKnockOut knock both of them out.]]

And not just TheHero or TheLeader: TheBigGuy is also likely to do this, sometimes to henchmen of the BigBad. [[EvilCounterpart On the other side]], if not the BigBad, expect TheDragon or TheBrute to do this to a pair of {{Red Shirt}}s, or any allies of TheHero. Even TheHero, the BigBad, and ''females'' can be hit with this tactic. ''No one'' is immune.

Often has [[PlayedForLaughs comedic overtones]], despite being [[DontTryThisAtHome potentially fatal]] if done hard enough in RealLife. Sometimes used in place of a DopeSlap, although this variant generally does not knock the victims out. The comic variety is usually accompanied by a [[StockSoundEffect KONK!]] Can overlap with WatchWhereYoureGoing under the right circumstances.
