Hit You So Hard Your X Will Feel It
"Tank grabbed Matua by his T-shirt and hit him with a right hand so hard that train accidents thought their father had finally come back home. It was such a terrible injustice against faces that Bono's orbital bone wrote a song about it."

Stock Phrase for threatening to hit someone so hard,the damage will spread to his friend, his mom, his hair or even an abstract concept. A frequent variant is "I will hurt you so bad that X"

Often used in tandem with If You Ever Hurt Her, Badass Boast, To the Pain or Cut His Heart Out with a Spoon. Sometimes used as a Pre Ass Kicking One Liner. Can be literal if there's a Psychic Link involved (doubly so for Twin Telepathy).

If the harm is financial rather than physical—say, Alice is threatening to sue Bob—it may be a more realistic threat like "I'll sue you so hard your grandkids will be in debt."

Not to be confused with Hit So Hard The Calendar Felt It.
