Master: Fight back! Resist the ass!When Soviet badass, Ass Kicks You. A battle trope. Perhaps to further humiliate the opponent, sometimes, even an ass becomes a viable weapon. So what you do is basically face back, bend your waist forward, and then jump backwards. And make sure your ass lands on the enemy. If you land in their face, that's much better. Or alternatively, do this while your enemy is down. Stomp them with your ass. In Video Games, this is often the form taken by the Ground Pound. Believed to have originated in Japanese Professional Wrestling, where this has been a staple move since at least the late '80s. Thus, this trope may or may not overlap with Wrestler in All of Us. If you like Toilet Humour (or if you just want to add insult to injury), fart while you're at it. Not guaranteed to happen, though. Sometimes accompanied with some "cute" "BOING!" sound. Occasionally involves something coming out of the ass. This move is usually a basic attack for characters known for having prominent lower bodies. See also Butt Sticker, Butt Cannon, and Literal Ass-Kicking. This trope is not related to people who kick ass elsewhere being in Soviet Russia... aside from being clearly named in that manner. Nor is it related to particularly kick-happy donkeys. Can overlap with Cherry Tapping. This trope could have been called "Butt Butt",note but that's way too lame a pun even for this site.
Craig: How can I resist an ass so great?
Master: It is only an ass. You must overcome the ass with your mind.
Craig: This ass is unlike any I have ever encountered, Master!
Craig: How can I resist an ass so great?

Astro: "...I have machine guns... in my butt?"
- A number of wrestling moves appear in BECK, and this one is performed by Koyuki here.
- There is an anime OVA titled Butt Attack Punisher Girl Gotaman. The title should make this example self-evident.

"But my mom taught me those moves..."
- There was Izumi/Zoe from Digimon Frontier's Arido Anca (dry hip) attack. It did work once or twice when it was used for its effect- to make a male enemy dizzily smitten with her for a short time. It's when she tried to use it to actually do damage that she just ended up getting hurt.
- Recoome from Dragon Ball Z has an attack named the Recoome Butt/Hip Attack in which he hits his opponent into the air and pounces them with his butt, pushing them a good distance away. Works quite effectively on Gohan, then five and small, who took it from a bare-assed Recoome.
- Not really a combat version... maybe a parody? In Fairy Tail, on the way to stop Erigor from killing the guild masters with an Death Magic playing flute, the heroes' magic wagon jolts, and Lucy slams butt-first into Kageyama's face. His reply? "Can't you go on a diet and slim down that huge rear end?" She is offended.

- In the first episode of Fushigi Yuugi, Miaka makes use of Wrestler in All of Us to beat some thugs, this being one of the moves she employs.
- Done unintentionally by Onizuka to Urumui in Great Teacher Onizuka: while the two are standing on top of a high building Onizuka reaches down to pick up some spare change, and Urumi happens to be standing right behind him… causing him to accidentally shove her off the building with his rear, which results in him believe he's killed her. In the anime this even gets invoked where he immediately panics and imagines the events as a movie trailer entitled "Murder By Butt Blow", wherein the police investigate Urumi's "death" and theorize that the only way she could have been killed was by someone pushing her off a building with their butt.
- The Brownie mecha from GUN×SWORD had butt mounted machine guns.
- Keijo!!!!!!!! takes this Up to Eleven with a whole sport where the competing girls are only allowed to hit each other with their butt or boobs.

- In Planetes, Hachimaki shoved Tanabe through an airlock back into the ship… To which his former sensei disapprovingly said, that "Nobody who calls himself a spaceman ever raises his hand to a woman." Hachimaki answered, that "It was my butt."
- Pretty Cure Franchise:
- HeartCatch Pretty Cure! has Tsubomi's "Blossom Butt Punch", which debuts in episode 6. Why she decides to call it a "punch" is something that confuses villains, bystanders, and even Tsubomi herself.
- Doki Doki Pretty Cure has an epic one in Episode 36. Actually it's an empowered Use Your Head by Raquel, but being a Mentor Mascot, Transformation Trinket and hanging on his partner's dress, he also drags Cure Diamond's body with his full force towards a Monster of the Week and he hits it with his cheek while Diamond hits it with her butt. And the monster is even defeated by this.
- In one episode of Sgt. Frog, Kururu puts a device on Keroro that causes him to obey all instructions given. He has him use one of these as part of the demonstration. A rather painful example showed up in episode 175. Fuyuki, Keroro, and Giroro shrank so they can swim in a kiddie pool. Everything went fine, until Natsumi and Koyuki showed up and jumped in the pool. Fuyuki and Keroro got tossed around and generally battered...but Giroro? Natsumi ended up sitting on him, complete with crunching sounds and poor Giroro groaning in pain. Ouch.
- At one point in Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Yoko pulls this on Kamina by sitting on the back of his head after he calls her butt big.
- In Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, when the Ojamas attack or use many of their spell or trap related support cards, it generally involves the monster or the opponent getting whacked by their rear end(s). (Probably the most disturbing time in the anime was in the finale of Season Two, during Manjyome's duel with Rei; Ojama Yellow hit Rei in the face this way via direct attack.)
- Yusuke of YuYu Hakusho absolutely humiliated Kuwabara with one in the first issue of the manga.
- Cerebus the Aardvark: The noticeably curvaceous Red Sophia does this to Cerebus in her introductory appearance, accidentally knocking him on his face with her (rather large) backside when she attempts to demonstrate a few dance moves. A few panels later, it escalates into a full-on sword fight, which which Cerebus wins.
- In one of the alternate chapters of Fluttersized, a giant Discorded Fluttershy is rampaging through Canterlot, until Luna confronts her. Luna is quickly (and hilariously) overpowered and knocked into the ground. As a Coup de Grâce, the giant Fluttershy sits on her, pancaking poor Luna into the street and leaving a crater.
- Joe's New Look: While in Silvia's clothes Joe manages to send one of Big John's men flying to his face with his hips.
- A vignette in Ponies and Dragons has Applejack complaining about her character in a tabletop game accidentally landing her rear on an evil pony baron after slipping on a patch of ice. Since her character is a giant pony, the baron was instantly flattened in a Karmic Death.
"Well, at least that's one bad guy who'll never be a pain in the rear again!"
- A later chapter has a flashback to that moment, with Applejack giving a great Bond One-Liner:
- Another vignette hints that Dragon Queen Tiamat once accidentally sat on (and thus destroyed) a Griffon city she'd gotten for her birthday. When one of Shining Armor's gaming buddies reveals a pony newspaper ran a joke about that incident, Tiamat immediately goes off to smash/eat/burn the paper's office. (Celestia intervened and prevented any violence, so don't worry.)
Films — Animated

- The DeeDee twins do this to Dana in Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker when they are dancing with Terry to get her out of the way so they can gang up on him.
Films — Live-Action
- Fat Albert.
- Drunken Master, a 1978 film featuring Jackie Chan. In the climactic battle, Jackie uses this method as a part of the Technique of the Drunken Miss Ho, and attempts to use a full-drop version of this attack as a finishing move. He misses (due to a combination of both Calling His Attack and the target still being fast enough to get out of the way), and promptly learns the downside to this technique.
- Add a sword and you've got a "butt blade" a la RoboGeisha.
- The drop-bear, an Australian joke "cryptid" on par with jackalopes, is said to resemble a carnivorous koala with a large posterior. It's alleged to drop butt-first from treetops onto unsuspecting targets, fatally invoking this trope on its prey with a butt-themed Goomba Stomp.
- In the comic mystery novel Merry Wives of Maggody, Bonaparte Buchanon nearly dies after getting fresh with Dahlia, who weighs well over 300 pounds. Police chief Arly manages to persuade Dahlia to stop sitting on him before he suffocates.
- Not an intentional attack, but the troll roadie Asphalt from Soul Music wound up squashed shorter than a human because the elephants he used to tend at the circus kept sitting on him.
- Miss Alice Band, an Assassin's Guild instructor and member, carries a 'Falchion' Compressed Air Device with Adjustable Timing Mechanism as a deadly weapon, concealed in her bustle.
- Diana from the Metal Heroes show Jikuu Senshi Spielban with her "Diana Hip Press" attack. This consisted of basically whacking an enemy with her backside. Apparently Diana's butt was made of stronger stuff than any of her weapons as it always was a 1 Hit KO and never failed. She even called the attack.
- In the All That sketch LAMOS, Mega Butt has a similar power to Kim Kardashian. And Chelsea Brummet was pretty darn curvy to begin with.
- Star Trek's own Captain Kirk is known for throwing himself into the melee... literally. In "Journey To Babel", he even launches himself off a corridor wall in order to land butt-first on his attacker (see it at 0:18). The best part? That's no stunt double - it's William Shatner himself pulling off that maneuver!
- The old G4 game review show Judgement Day had a segment reviewing game hardware and accessories, but instead of hosts Victor Lucas or Tommy Tallarico, one of several buxom "Hardware Girls" (Their name, not mine) would fool around with the technology. Part of the gimmick of this segment is that the Hardware Girl of the day would wear a shirt referencing a video game term or trope but always written as a Double Entendre. One of the shirts simply read "Be Nice or I'll Butt Bounce You".
- Blink-and-you'll-miss-it example in the Doctor Who episode "Day of the Moon" where, during their shootout with the Silence, River gives the Doctor a, ahem, shove towards the TARDIS.
- A figurative example in a Whose Line Is It Anyway? skit in which Buffy Summers confronts Count Dracula. The Count turns his backside toward Buffy to tempt her with his "Fanny of Darkness," and Buffy looks away to avoid seeing it.
- Kamen Rider Nadeshiko, as seen in Kamen Rider Fourze's crossover movies (Megamax and Ultimatum), does this as part of her awesomely cutesy fighting style.
- Kamen Rider Gaim: The campy and effeminate Oren Pierre Alfonzo, alias Armored Rider Bravo, has used this technique on occasion.
- Blake's 7. This happens to Dayna to conclude a rather unconvincing fight scene in "Stardrive".
- The novelty song "Little Gomez", about the singer's rather randy chihuahua, ends in tragedy when the determined little dog encounters a female St. Bernard, which apparently gets bored in mid-liaison. And sits down.
- The song "Manticore" by comedy band Ninja Sex Party claims that the legendary manticore will "kick your ass in with his feet, and then he'll kick your feet with his gigantic ass."
- An Eminem music video features a "cameo" of Kim Kardashian doing this to her date by inflating her ass.
- Similarly, Fergie does this telekinetically in the "Pump It" video. You know how telekinetics sometimes use hand motions to "throw" or "shove" someone? Fergie does it with her butt. (Or her hair, or her breasts...)
- As noted above, the flying hip attack has long been a staple move in Japanese Professional Wrestling, although it's interesting to note that it tends to show up a lot more in women's matches than in men's… Shiro Koshinaka, who graduated from the All Japan dojo in 1979, was the first male wrestler who adopted the move. Also Kesen Numajiro and later Manabu Murakami have hip attacks in their movesets.
- One of André the Giant's spots involved backing an opponent into the turnbuckle and then ramming his butt into their gut, sometimes repeatedly.
- World Class wrestler "Iceman" King Parsons used the flying hip attack as a finisher, known sometimes as the "Rumper Stumper" and to at least one announcer as the "Butt Butt" (as opposed to a Head Butt). The "Butt Butt" has also been used by Colt Cabana; while he was in Ring of Honor, it was known as the "Flying Asshole".
- Goldust a.k.a. Dustin Rhodes uses a flying hip attack on an opponent coming off the ropes from time to time. Being that Goldust is often portrayed as an extremely bizarre Camp Gay, it fits him.
- In the same boat, there's also Rikishi, whose main gimmick was being a cool big guy while being an occasional Gasshole who'd often enter the ring, slapping his own ass. His signature move was the Stink Face, which consisted of mashing his ass to your face.
- Rikishi's Stink Face move was also later taken up by Torrie Wilson for a while. And then by Torrie's Spiritual Successor Kelly Kelly.
- Kelly's former Extreme Expose teammate Brooke Tessmacher also adopted it in TNA.
- Amber O'Neal, after embracing her love of hip hop, came up with a booty popping variant of the stink face, where she bounces her hips and repeatedly knocks her opponent's head into the turn buckle.
- Rikishi's twin sons, who wrestle in WWE as Jimmy and Jey Uso, will use this attack on occasion as well, usually in tandem to opponents in opposite corners.
- Before Rikishi there was Yokozuna, who had even more girth and had no one kick out of his Banzai Drop. Japanese wrestler Akebono also adopted it as a tribute to him.
- Junkyard Dog used the Butt Butt as one of his regular moves.
- Doink the Clown's finisher, the Whoopee Cushion, complete with fart sound.
- Umaga was fond of charging butt first into opponents with their head on the bottom turnbuckle.
- The Seated Senton Bomb/Splash is the "butt stomp" variant of this trope. Few wrestlers use the aerial variant because of the shock on the spinal column this causes (not to mention what landing ass first on an opponent from a distance would do to said opponent, should the splasher not land just so), but a running version was the Finishing Move of the late John "Earthquake/Avalanche/Shark/Golga" Tenta.
- CHIKARA's Los Ice Creams use a version of this they call El Asesino.
- Former WWE Diva Molly Holly used a somersault senton, dubbed the "Molly-Go-Round", as her finisher, which utilized her large backside to full effect. When Molly used to do her back-handsprings, she'd finish off by squashing her opponent against the corner of the ring with her butt.
- The Big Show on occasion. Often sitting on his opponent whenever he gets the chance, especially in the form of a stinkface. He usually does this by taking a seat on their face in the corner and relaxing for a bit, but sometimes tends to rub his buttocks on their face as well, apparently with the assistance of flatulence. Other moves if his include thrusting his ass into his opponent's abdomen, throwing them against the ropes and bending over so that they can hit his buttocks as they bounce back, and taunting the referee and the audience with his backside.
- Kevin Nash used to throw his opponent into the corner of the ring then slam his hip into their midsection. Not quite the same, but occasionally he would over-rotate and look like he was slamming his ass into their torso.
- The World Famous Kana's "Billiken" Finishing Move, which she stopped relying on as she developed her "evil shooter" gimmick but never quit using entirely, especially since an "evil clown" gimmick came next.
- LuFisto proposes something along these lines to Canadian Revolution Wrestling women's champion Sara Del Rey after catching Del Rey talking trash about her in what was supposed to be a pre taped promo.
- In response to being teased about her rear end by Girl Posse Team Blondage in SHIMMER, Cindy Rogers decided to put it to use against Krissy Vaine.
- Hiroyo Matsumoto likes to enhance her weight by having other people jump into her arms or on her back before finishing the opposition with a butt drop. She's increased herself from 70 to 237 kg(522 lbs) by carrying Ran Yuu and Aja Kong.
- Naomi Knight's signature move, the booty call or the rear view on rated PG Smackdown.
- Layla also started using a booty bump, where she would jump backwards and hit a sitting opponent with her ass. In this case it was more of a playful Poke the Poodle than an actual offensive move.
- One of Seleziya Sparx's moves is to back her opponent into a corner, climb to the second rope and start booty popping down on their head.
- Being exoticos, the Fella Twins use a suggestive tag team variant of the stink face.
- Alexander Otsuka's Depraved Bisexual persona Otoko Sakari uses a full arsenal of it.
- Ryusuke Taguchi uses a lot of hip attack variants as signature moves. This is just one aspect of his unique offense - they don't call him the Funky Weapon for nothing.
- Done accidentally on the first Women Of Honor live show when rookie wrestler Faye Jackson signaled for her "Triple Spun Milkshake" and knocked both her Tag Team partners out of the ring in the process.
- In D&D, a Monk can use every part of his body for an unarmed attack, with no off-hand penalty. Yes, even his ass. And at high levels, his ass is considered both lawful and adamantine (meaning they can pierce most kinds of damage reduction). Now that's a hard ass.
- In the GURPS martial arts supplement, a character can buy Iron Hands, meaning your hands are hardened with callouses and bone deformity until they strike as hard as a weapon. Similarly you can buy Iron Buttocks...
- Super Mario Bros.: Various characters land butt first in their variation on the Ground Pound. It's usually also the most powerful attack in each game it appears in.
- Mr. Gold and Mr. Silver in God Hand have butt attacks, preceded by the phrase, "Whip It Good!" The fat enemies also have a flying variant.
- Yuri Sakazaki, in Art of Fighting 2 & the The King of Fighters series has a butt attack. In The King of Fighters as well, Athena gained an aerial butt attack, and Momoko of KOFXI has another, in three-hit-combo style. Also, in KOF'99 Mai Shiranui gained an aerial butt attack that takes advantage of her rarely emphasized hips. Chang Koehan attack with his butt in Capcom vs. SNK 2: Mark of the Millennium. In King of Fighters XIV, newcomer Zaria slams her backside into enemies as a combo finisher. It fits her character pretty well, since she's a Capoeira fighter.
- Kisarah Westfield uses three versions in GANGAN/Aggressors of Dark Kombat - one generic horizontal back-turned, butt-first leap, one jumping reverse somersault attack with rear impact "Hip Bazooka!", and one throw during which she leaps high into the air and lands on the opponent's face "Supreme Inferno!" The last one was re-tooled as a somewhat less suggestive follow-up to her Cutie Rainbow for her return in Neo Geo Battle Coliseum.
- Carol Stanzack of Savage Reign uses a butt attack whenever she travels into the background of a stage.
- Gordon Bowman uses his backside to attack close up.
- Ellis of Battle Arena Toshinden uses a butt strike as part of her HK attack. The same strike is used during her desperation move in 2 and 3 and also, she can use an aerial butt drop against a downed opponent, but only in 2.
- In Toshinden Subaru, having removed the original cast, the strike was given to Puella as a running attack, and the drop went to Fen, who uses it in both his throw and downed attack.
- In the Neo-Geo fighting game variation of Double Dragon, Marian can attack a downed opponent using an aerial butt drop.
- Chiaki Ichinomiya of the obscure PSX fighting game Genei Tougi: Shadow Struggle and its sequel Critical Blow has a butt attack as part of her fighting style.
- Victor von Gerdenheim from Darkstalkers uses his ass rather than kicking when up-close. And he uses his ass to throw the enemy, not just smashing them on the face. He even has a grab where he squeezes his opponent between his cheeks. Note that whenever Victor attacks, he has the ability to make the attacking body part grow roughly three times its size. He does it in this case, too.
- Street Fighter:
- Street Fighter Alpha 3, flinging herself butt-first at her opponent forms the basis of Rainbow Mika's signature moves (Shooting Peach/Flying Peach/Rainbow Hip Rush). She even rubs her sore posterior after any of these moves connect. In Street Fighter V, her Critical Art has her call in her tag team partner, Nadeshiko, to crush their opponent's head between their asses.
- E.Honda also wields butt-based attacks in most of his appearances... his jumping light kick, his charge down-up-kick move, which basically has him jump high into the air and smash down on the enemy butt-first. But he also has a special throw (full-circle-punch) that consists of him grabbing the enemy, smashing him to the ground, and then butt-smashing him while he's down. Street Fighter Alpha 3 adds a new Finishing Move (charge-down back, down front-down back-up-kick) where he headbutts the opponent, hurls them off the ground and leaps after them with a body slam followed by butt crush if done on max energy. All are highly damaging. Presumably due to E.Honda weighing more than most cars. (It's particularly disturbing if you see him pull this on Sakura. Watching a 400lb fat man jump 5 feet into the air and then crush a 16-year-old girl (a child, mind you) is a mild but memorable squick.)
- Street Fighter III's Hugo's crouching Roundhouse is a none too pleasant-looking version.
- Though she doesn't have one in the main series, Sakura sports two in Super Gem Fighter. In one she catches them in the air and lands sitting on their head. In the second she, in Bunny Girl attire, butt smacks them away.
- In the Touhou fighting game spinoffs Scarlet Weather Rhapsody and Hisoutensoku, Marisa Kirisame has a charge attack in the form of launching herself butt-first at the enemy. It has surprisingly good range and damage, and provides immunity to projectiles, raising questions about just what Marisa makes her bloomers out of.
- In a later fighting game, Urban Legend in Limbo, one of Sumireko Usami's attacks is a hip check. Seems to be a magician thing.
- Hitting his opponent with his butt is the third part of Luigi's one-two-three combo in Super Smash Bros. Melee and Brawl. In the Mario series in general, this is called a "Ground Pound" when performed vertically.
- Also in the Super Smash Bros. series: Princess Peach's Peach Bomber side special. And her back aerial, and her back throw, and her down throw. Plus her ledge get-up attack. Though the Peach Bomber is the only one of those moves that explodes on impact.
- Donkey Kong uses one to return to the stage when hanging.
- In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Wario also has a number of ass-based attacks... including his back and down throws. And yes, that IS quite a few SSBB characters - it's been joked that the game also needs a 'Butt Attack' sticker, in addition to the usual Arm/Foot/Head Attack stickers. And in Mario Strikers Charged, Wario's deke attack is a butt stomp. "BUTT SMASH!"
- Just to emphasise how many fighters use this method, both Bowser and Yoshi's Down B attacks are a Ground Pound.
- Wario doesn't use his behind to strike his opponents directly in Wario World, but does use it to execute the Ground Pound move that Mario does in some games, and his can be pretty lethal.
- Earthquake's signature move in Samurai Shodown.
- Wan-Fu (big Chinese fighter) and Cham Cham (catgirl) also have this as an option. Cham Cham limits hers to a flying drop, while Wan-Fu can throw it out while standing on the ground as well.
- Cyber Woo in King of the Monsters 2 has a Piston Punch Version of this.
- Aska from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters, the SNES version. And here is a video of her in action. SNES T.M.N.T. Tournament Fighters - US Aska vs JAP Aska
- Tiffany Lords of Rival Schools has both a butt-smash attack and a taunt where she does a "kiss my ass" pose. Delinquent Gan Isurugi, on the other hand, has a dash attack where he throws his sizable money-maker at the opponent.
- Bloody Roar has Busuzima who sits on peoples faces and FARTS on them!
- Bloody Roar also has Greg who uses this in his Gorilla form.
- Seems to be a Nonomura family trait. Mitsuko, Alice, and Uriko all have butt-bump attacks in their combos.
- Cassandra does this for several standard attacks and her Critical Finish in Soul Calibur IV. In 3 and 4, a butt-first leap is her longest ranged move. Her butt strikes also actually use the "kick" command.
- Her elder sister Sophitia does a butt attack if you have her throw the enemy from behind, or if your back is turned to them.
- Voldo also has an ass-attack in Soul Calibur IV. It is much more horrifying.
- The Succubus' "Hip Attack" in Disgaea.
- The Final Boss Mondo in Slaughter Sport has a butt-drop move that can be a one-shot kill, making it the most powerful move in the game. Spamming these attacks to make him bounce on his ass back and forth across the arena is an easy way to cheap your opponent in versus mode.
- Sonic the Hedgehog has a few examples.
- Amy Rose can dash into her opponents rear-first in Sonic the Fighters and Sonic Battle. In the Updated Re-release of the former, this is one of a few moves copied from her by Honey the Cat, which was likely taken because her source character also made use of this trope. In the latter, the robot Emerl can copy her.
- Rouge the Bat in Sonic Adventure 2's multiplayer mode has the Hip Drop move, which involves butt-stomping the ground so hard it causes an earthquake that stuns her opponent, even from all the way across the map. As they use the same moveset as Rouge, the cameo character Nights also does this.
- Cream also has one of these in Sonic Advance.
- In Pokémon Battle Revolution, this is Lopunny's standard physical attack animation. Of particular note is the move Return, which causes hearts to burst out on impact...
- As with the Luigi example above, Link's Goron form in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask has a punch-punch-butt combination. As a Goron, Link has the excuse of being incredibly strong, weighing a ton, and literally having a rock-hard backside.
- Tina Armstrong has a flying backwards butt rush as part of her wrestling repertoire. As she's a longtime Dead or Alive contender, there are worse asses than hers to be hit with (like her father Bass, and Brad Wong).
- It's possible to dodge this using the "counter" command, which can result in her flying ass-first off the edge of a roof (or similar).
- Ayane also has a, fairly difficult to deliver, chain which ends with her slamming her rear down on them.
- Also, Lucha Libre wrestler Lisa Hamilton (a.k.a. La Mariposa) has a move where she jabs her assets into an opponent.
- Let's not forget the "Butt Battle" mode from Xtreme 2.
- Marie Rose's Rose Hip attack utilizes her butt.
- Guest fighter Rachel has a throw (to crouching foes) where she grabs their heads, and SLAMS them into her ass!
- Dead or Alive 5 Last Round introduces Honoka, a busty schoolgirl who can copy moves of other fighters. Alot of her moves involve use of her large butt.
- DLC character Naotora Ii from Samurai Warriors utilizes her shapely assets: from a powerful butt-first tackle, to a move in which she crushes them under her butt.
- Mai Shiranui from The King of Fighters and her busty side-step attack.
- Hibari from the Senran Kagura series has a powerful aerial combo that finishes with a prominent hip throw, and she uses her rear to attack when using her aerial smash.
- Fiona's fully charged neutral E attack in Arcana Heart causes her to launch herself buttfirst at the enemy.
- Some of the larger fighters in the Tekken series allow for this too. Notably, anyone named Jack can do this, as well as Kuma, Panda (basically same moves) and Ganryu. All of them used to share the same movesets, but eventually diversified.
- Lili gains a bump version as an item move.
- Anna Williams finally puts her money where her...butt is, after seven games of simply shaking her butt at the enemy in Tekken 6, when her "Aphrodite's Scorn" (f+2+3 or 6+RP+LK, if you're weird like that) move makes a debut. Thankfully, it's her standard/most powerful combo ender, so there's a good excuse to use it frequently.
- Miharu can uses a back-turned butt bash this and an combo ender with her Miharu's attack.
- Jaycee (Julia Chang) has a hip check, and a dropping butt crush.
- Shun Di from Virtua Fighter, with his back throw move "Haitou Richu" and "Kasenko: →P,P,P,K" .
- As well as Jeffery. →K+G, while running
- Sarah too, as of Final Showdown. Wildcat: →P+K+G,K+G of K+G from a front slide.
- And Taka-Arashi with Hondo Kate'ate: ←P,P,P and Ganseki Otoshi: ↑P (while opponent is on floor)
- One of Xiaomu's combos in Endless Frontier ends with this.
- In The House of the Dead 4's fourth chapter, the boss, Temperance, is an oversized obese zombie who is a few stories tall. During the first phrase of the battle, if you don't deplete one of his stun gauges in time, he'll jump high into the air and butt-stomp you. Ouch. That shouldn't just take off one life...
- Many of Honey's moves in Fighting Vipers use her butt, including one that involves a running start. Her possible boyfriend Sanman also has at least one.
- The title character of the Croket! games used one in the earlier titles, often including Fartillery. Likewise he seems to have at least once in the anime. In the later games he lost the attack but it was used, minus the fart, by the Old Master and two of the female cast members.
- Bridget of the Guilty Gear series has a flying butt attack which will frequently stagger the enemy. Potemkin also as an aerial drop version.
- In Virtual-ON Fei-Yin hits the opponent with her rear in one move, producing a shower of hearts.
- A good chunk of the cast of Pretty Fighter has one. Also inverted with a spanking attack.
- Watson of Battle Fantasia uses a butt bump as his throw, and the large Dwarf Donvalve has at least one as well. Marco appears to use his in his throw as well.
- The freeware fighter Secret of the Eight Stones has two fighters with almost entirely butt based styles, as well as at least one attack from many others. The expansion pack is based around this and Fartillery. Even one fighter with the aforementioned butt machine guns.

- Legaia 2: Duel Saga has Sharon's Peach Surprise combo ending with one.
- The 3rd boss "elfin's dynamic hip" uses one as well.
- Jessica's "Hip Drop" attack in Dragon Quest VIII uses... the reverse part of her hips. This is an especially good one, because it's not only an effective means of focusing on one enemy if you have Jessica using a whip, it also has a chance to charm whoever she hits, making them waste a turn. Some enemies, such as the Fat Bats, also use it.
- In Ready 2 Rumble Boxing: Round Two, Mama Tua used her massive backside as one of her special attacks.

- Natalia Glinka from the freeware fighting game Vanguard Princess has two specific attacks using her butt. Given what little clothing she has down there and how she executes the move, it's a major point of Fanservice.

- In Final Fantasy X, Cindy of the Magus Sisters performs a very straight-forward one as her basic attack, simply running up to the target before giving them a bump with her rear. The fact that she's wearing a suit of armor probably contributes to its painfulness.
- In Final Fantasy X-2, Brother also does this for his basic attack if you use him as a party member.
- Makoto Nanaya of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift does this as her back throw, which has knocking her opponent on their back and then jumping and landing on them butt-first. She also has a variant in her jumping 2C attack (although she's covering her butt with her tail when performing it).
- Also from BlazBlue, Platinum the Trinity's 6B attack hops butt-first towards the opponent. It registers as a hit even when the opponent is crouch guarding, so it's not wrong to say that this move is most effective when it's a facebutt.

- In Kingdom of Loathing, an item found in some Clan VIP rooms allows you to photocopy your own butt. Which can then come out and attack you. Or someone else. Just about the most literal version of this trope possible. And yes, if your photocopied posterior ends up fighting someone, you end up with either 'Troper has kicked your butt' or 'Your butt has kicked Troper's'.
- In Psychic Force, Wendy can use this to slam an enemy into the Invisible Wall.
- Gretchen from Knight's Contract has a finisher where she shrinks every enemy on screen and sits on them. Naked.
- Pooly, one of the fighters from the PSX Fighting/Adventure Abalaburn uses this as his weak close-range combo. His Acrofatic status makes it rather dangerous for its type.

- In Project X Zone, when Valkyrie is called as an assist her finishing attack has her grow giant and perform a Ground Pound on the opponent.
- In Dragon's Crown, the Amazon's unarmed aerial downward attack is a butt slam that causes shockwaves. Given the size of her butt, this is hardly surprising.

- In a minigame for Mario Party 10, A humongous Bowser controlled by a player must buttslam and sit on the other players. That's a whole lot weight and a whole lot of Bowser butt...
- In Ar tonelico Qoga: Knell of Ar Ciel, one Talk Topic has the persona Sohma describes how she broke out of the thick, strong containment of the capsules Reyvateils are born from, ruefully remarking on her monstrous destructive power. The first reaction is shock at the destruction, but once the hero Aoto finds out she did it by "bumping" her backside into the walls, he decides the image is rather cute.
- The Nurse which is the boss on Highland Hospital for Beavis and Butt-Head for the Super Nintendo.
- The Lagombi from Monster Hunter 3 will sometimes jump back and slam into you with its heavily-padded backside if you try and get behind it. In Monster Hunter 4 it also gains a Ground Pound attack.
- A Basketball mini-game of The Flintstones: The Rescue of Dino and Hoppy makes Fred use it to steal the ball.
- Butt-stomping ensues in a few Blazing Moves from Def Jam: Fight For NY. Typically those involve landing ass-first straight into the enemy's lumbar spine. Ouch. And in Meca's case, the punishment doesn't stop there.

- Neko The Kitty featured in it's "Things Get Weird" arc a "hero" known as Lady Doomass who was constantly foiling McJefferstein's "evil" plans. She later turned "evil" and sided with McJefferstein against the "hero" Hubris. Her appearances constantly featured close-ups on her rear, which prominently displayed the word "Doom". She used this as her weapon of choice when she was in need of one.
- An artist named Kazecat is very well known for having large anthro women that wrestle, usually finishing with a KA-SQUASH!!!, or in other words Slamming their huge butts down onto their opponents for a devastating (and sometimes humiliating if they have fartillery) defeat.

- In The Venture Bros. episode "Ghosts of the Sargasso", bodyguard Brock Samson performs a much more disturbing and violent variant of this move when a pair of professional "ghost pirates" (actually guys who make a living pulling Scooby-Doo hoaxes) attempt to perform an, ahem... "cavity search". Suffice it to say that one of the Mooks in question doesn't get his hand back until he is dead. Brock, it should be noted, is in shackles the entire time... you figure it out.
Brock: "Hey buddy... I'd kill for one of those right about now."Smoker: "It's my last pack."Brock: "It'll help me relax..."Searcher: "Dude, give him one! Please!"Smoker: "No! Screw him! Pirates don't give people cigarettes!

He asks the real manager to stand up and after they both stand the woman, for some reason, sits on Fifi. We are even treated to a POV shot of the woman's ass descending on her. She pulls her flattened body out from under the woman's weight and reshapes herself. Rosane Barr then falls down from the rafters on her ass first. Rosanne scoots around rubbing Fifi on the ground with her ass and then it fades out.

Also note that the bully was a firebender and put it to use, while Aang didn't even have to (and couldn't for cover reasons) do the same. What◊ a◊ loser◊.
- Also not a "battle": In KaBlam!, June does this constantly to Henry (surprisingly it works, due to June being skinny as a rail)
- Princess Candy from Dave the Barbarian practices Tae Kwon Don't ("It's not as good for fighting as Tae Kwon Do, but it's great for firming the buttocks.") which appears to use this as it' primary technique, because every time she tries to use it in a fight, she launches herself at her opponent, ass first.

- In Brazil, there's apparently a "fighter's dance" (or rather, "somewhat combative thing people do") called samba duro or "hard samba." It's done (as the name implies) during samba dances, and the practitioner (usually a woman) hits her opponent with her bunda (and hips) as she dances.

- Mundane Utility; if your arms are full and you need to open a door or close a drawer, using the butt will let you keep your balance better than using your foot or knee. When performed while listening to Pop Music (e.g. "Kung-Fu Fighting"), it also looks cool, or ridiculous, or both.
- Before the rules were revised, sneaky players of Muggle Quidditch would get their opponents fouled out by rushing at them and spinning around just before collision. This would get the opponent penalized for contact from behind, even though it was the approaching player who'd touched them with their behind.
- "Facesitting" is one of the most popular (or at least "most advertised") activities in the world of BDSM. It's exactly what it sounds like: forcefully smothering a willing submissive victim with the buttocks, battering their face and depriving them of oxygen for brief periods. As one might expect, the experience is meant to be just as painful and humiliating as it is erotic.
