'''Basic Trope''': A strong character who would probably win easily if he directly struck his opponent only throws the other around.
* '''Straight''': Drake ineffectually slams Bob into walls and floors.
* '''Exaggerated''': Drake punts Bob through multiple loadbearing concrete walls but it is not enough.
* '''Downplayed''': Drake's throws are ineffectual only when smashing Bob through fragile drywall. A hit against concrete genuinely hurts.
* '''Justified''':
** Drake is a grappler, judoka, wrestler or otherwise trained primarily in a throwing style and his instinctual choice of combat moves reflects this.
** Drake isn't executing the throws correctly. A poor throw impact connects on the back and spreads energy throughout Bob's body, while a strike impact is more focused and thus does more damage. Done right, such as connecting on the head, Bob would have been toast.
** Bob has some magical defence against mundane kinetic impact. Only strikes from an appropriate magical weapon can affect him.
** Bob has SuperToughness. It'll take more than wall-shattering force to bring him down.
** Drake is [[LightningBruiser statistically better than Bob in every way]] and [[{{Pride}} arrogantly doesn't feel the need to fight seriously.]]
* '''Inverted''': Drake punches Bob a hundred times to no effect, but when the former finally uses a throw, one good throw ends Bob.
* '''Subverted''': Bob tries to get up from getting thrown and then slumps over dead. Looks like Drake did manage to bust him up through throws.
* '''Double Subverted''': Bob turns out to be faking.
* '''Parodied''': Drake destroys an entire house by throwing Bob around to little effect.
* '''Zig Zagged''': Bob tries to get up after getting thrown, but dies. Bob appears to be faking this, but Drake was aware of this, and threw him again. Bob really dies.
* '''Averted''': Drake doesn't waste time doing throws on Bob but just tackles him for a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown.
* '''Enforced''': The writer is not a martial artist or doesn't have/ignores his martial arts consultant, who would know better.
* '''Lampshaded''': "You'd think he'd get tired of just throwing me and punch my jaw off by now or something."
* '''Invoked''': ???
* '''Exploited''': ???
* '''Defied''': ???
* '''Discussed''': ???
* '''Conversed''': "Why do all these {{Giant Mook}}s only know how to throw people around?"
* '''Played For Drama''': Drake's [[HeroKiller already killed many of Bob's allies with his superior strength]], and is simply tossing Bob around to drive the point home about how helpless Bob is and how he'll die as soon as Drake feels like it.
