Master:When Soviet Badass, Ass Kicks You.
Fight back! Resist the ass! 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!
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 videogames
, 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 '80's
. 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 butt
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", but that's way too lame a pun for even this site

Anime and Manga
- 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.
- 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.
- Another happens in the episode Robot of Sherwood, when The Doctor uses this maneuver to bump Robin Hood off of a bridge into a creek. Later in the episode, Robin Hood repeats the maneuver to the Sheriff of Nottingham.
- 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.
- 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 was the first male wrestler who adopted the move. Also Kesen Numajiro and most recently 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 Gasshole Fat Bastard who'd often enter the ring, slapping his own ass. His finishing 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.
- 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.
- Junkyard Dog used the Butt Butt as one of his regular moves.
- 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 this 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 splash-er not land just so), but it 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.
- 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.
- 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 to put it to use against Krissy Vain.
- Naomi Knight's signature move, the booty call or the rear view on rated PG Smackdown.
- Doink the Clown's finisher, the Whoopee Cushion, complete with fart sound.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 SNK vs. Capcom.
- 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.
- 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.
- In 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...
- E.Honda also wields butt-based attacks in most of his Street Fighter 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.
- 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.
- Actually, data mining shows that the game considers Butt to be a separate attack type. Most likely the effect was merged with Body later in development; other unused types include Elbow and Knee.
- 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.
- Voldo also has a 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Let's not forget the "Butt Battle" mode from Xtreme 2.
- Fiona's forward + C attack in Arcana Heart.
- 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.
- 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.
- A sequel demo (which also has an expansion of it's own) includes "Princess Elsa" who uses her behind extensively even by this series standards!
- And inverted in X2, which has a character based entirely around Literal Ass Kicking.
- Arina of Waku Waku 7 has a bump as one of her throws. Coolest of all, however, is her aerial drop in which she tauntingly smacks her butt as it hits them. literal case of Badass?
- Peppita from Star Ocean Till The End Of Time attacks butt first in her "Charge!" animation. Though not an attack, Roger also puts a fairly unique spin on a butt smack taunt.
- Neemon in Digimon Rumble Arena 2 uses his rear in a couple of attacks. Along with heavy Fartillery and a spanking victory taunt.
- In the original game, Impmon had at least three butt attacks.
- Likewise is Binbougami in DreamMix TV World Fighters with both a butt and gas attack.
- June of Star Gladiator ends her super with a butt bump, as well as landing sitting on their face in her throw. The latter was also used by her daughter Ele in the sequel.
- In Power Stone many characters make use of the Ground Pound variant. Also, in the first game, Ayame used a flying bump as a combo ender. She and Pete also pat them at the enemy in their victory pose and taunt respectively.
- In the InuYasha PSX fighter, Shippo has a flying butt bump as one of his ducking combo hits.
- 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.
- The first stage of the SNES Battletoads game Battlemaniacs had Pig-like baddies that would try to sit on you from higher elevations and had a stone pig boss that did a jumping butt drop that would instant kill if it hit.
- Helga from Clayfighter had as special move called Valkyrie Ride.
- Yokozuna from WWF Wrestlemania: The Arcade Game had a scissor bomb and a banzai drop that could hit from across the ring. Ouch! And in one of the Super Nintendo era WWF games, WWF Raw, Yokozuna had a hidden move where he jumped off the turnbuckle and landed ass first in the ring, causing an earthquake!
- 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 Astérix at the Olympic Games, Obelix does this. It's conceivably destructive.
- Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles The Crystal Bearers'' features a Butt Battle mini-game in which female selkies attempt to knock one another into a pool using their rears.

- He also learns the "Chocobo Drop" in Natural class.
- 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).
- 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.
- Mortal Kombat 9: Kitana's old Square Wave attack where she jumped up and air-dashed forward with a punch has been replaced with a somewhat more realistic variation where she jumps up and then uses her fans to propel herself ass-first into an opponent.
- In the Scott Pilgrim vs. the World beat 'em up game, Kim does this as a dash attack. It comes with the cute noise, too.
- Lucifer and Beatrice are both able to attack with their butts in the Umineko fighting spinoff...which is kind of ridiculous when Beatrice hits you with the ass end of her poofy dress.

- 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.
- Double from Skullgirls has her "Hornet Bomber" which involves her shapeshifting to Cerebella and then invoking the trope by flying through the air, butt first. Also happens to be a Shout-Out to R. Mika.
- Squigly bumps her opponent with her butt to do her snapback animation. While doing so, her parasite Leviathan makes the famous "'Dat Ass" face, complete with sunglasses.

- 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 the upcoming video game, 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, 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.
- 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! They take them!"
Brock: "I told you what I'd do for one of these."
- This is the preferred tactic of the Super Duper Sumos. Booma in particular. "GLUTEUS MAXIMUS!"

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you "Lethal Goofin'"!
- Celebrity Deathmatch had an episode in which Jennifer Lopez used her cybernetically enhanced ass to battle Dolly Parton's cybernetically enhanced boobs.
- In Avatar The Last Airbender, when Aang is posing as a Fire Nation Academy student, a bully picks a fight with him. The bully is obviously an inexperienced fighter and Aang is the freaking Avatar. Aang simply avoids all his attacks, and for his final move slips behind him and uses his own ass to lightly bump his opponent in the ass, nearing making the bully fall over. 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◊.
- Not quite a battle example but in Aladdin Jafar bumps Prince Ali out of the way with his butt. He's so skinny that it really shouldn't work, but it does.
- 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 ("Not as useful as Tae Kwon Do, but it's great for the glutes") which appears to use this as it's primary technique, because every time she tries to use it in a fight, she launches herself at her opponent, ass first.

- Danny Phantom: Sidney Pointdexter, who is in Danny's body, jumps up and turns butt first into Danny Phantom (who is in Sidney's body) in the episode "Splitting Images". Then the word "Bawoomp" appears.
- Kim Possible:
- In "Tick-Tick-Tick", Shego is defeated when the aptly named Big Mike sits on her.
- In "Dimension Twist", Drakken and Shego get squashed beneath the equally aptly named "Mister Sit-Down".
- In a Cow and Chicken episode called "Karate Chicken", Red smacked chicken with his ass in the dojo. They called this "Butt-fu" and train they students to attack with their butt.
- Buhdeuce and Swaysway of Breadwinners do this constantly. In fact, "Booty Kick" is one of their catchphrases.
- Australia presents... The Wombat! A cute, fuzzy little creature, similar to the koala, (only it lives underground), that kills stuff with its butt. When pursued by a predator down one of its extensive burrows, it can use its rather solid posterior to crush the poor creature's head against the walls of the burrow.
- In Brazil, there's apparently a "martial art" (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. It's mostly a slightly catty, aggressively-passive-aggressive way to punish people for cutting in on one's partner or doing other rude things.
- This evolved in 2010 into the Surra de Bunda (video) (lit. ass fighting) dance move, in which the dancer literally whacks a guy in the face with her butt. It's kind of become a meme.
- Happens quite often in roller derby. A 100lb girl can take out someone twice her size by sitting on the other girl's thigh.
- And one of the classic maneuvers of roller derby is the booty block. Performed with impressive stopping power, it's more or less exactly what it sounds like.
- Some martial arts throws use pushing one's hips against the opponent as a means of gaining leverage for the throw.
- Kickboxer and MMA fighter Mark Hunt once attacked his opponent with what Randy Couture dubbed "The Atomic Butt Drop". This was against current UFC fighter, Wanderlei Silva.
- This is a common way to get out of being held from behind in several martial arts.
- It can be more effective than intended as well. Depending on the heights of the two people in question, you could unintentionally slam a hip or tailbone into your opponent's groin.
- This is taken a step further in roller derby, where the "booty block" is one of the most common defensive moves. Note that in roller derby, booty shorts (often with posterior-emphasizing text or graphics on the back) are a requisite part of the standard uniform.
- Hip-checking in ice hockey.
- Particularly egregious examples of hip-checking used frequently by players who are known to hip-check are occasionally referred to as "the flying ass".
- Mundane Utility; if your arms are full and you need to open a door, using the butt will let you keep your balance better than using your foot.
