-->-- "Kick in the Ass" by Music/MoxyFruvous

For some reason, {{Slapstick}} comedy often seems to involve a character [[AmusingInjuries injuring]] their butt. Possibly it's just because it's humiliating, making this essentially the rear-oriented counterpart of the GroinAttack.

Especially common in cartoons, where this often takes the form of one character sticking a long pin into another character's behind, making them jump away, or straight up in the air, with a yell.

Another form of this old slapstick trope has someone [[RumpRoast sitting on something unexpectedly hot]]. Yet another is getting [[ButtBiter bitten on the backside]], usually by a dog or some similar animal. Might be part of literally GettingTheBoot and forcefully removed from a location. Then, of course, there's the old "ThumbtackOnTheChair" gag. And certainly not least, that perennial favorite, ThePratfall.

The unlucky recipient's reaction is likely to be a PainPoweredLeap.

Related to AssShove, which happens when something goes ''into'' the butt, and ShotInTheAss, the specific case of, well, ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin and PainToTheAss.

Contrast AssKicksYou. KinkySpanking is the titillating variant. ComedicSpanking is a related concept.

* Half of Sakura Hirota's game plan towards fellow REINA visitor Luscious Latasha was to confuse her with pranks. The other half, was this trope.
* Because of the TV-G (as opposed to TV-PG) nature of WWE's Saturday Morning Slam, most superstars cannot target the head and neck of their opponent, leading to some hilarious cases when the finisher involves a swift kick to the head. Most notably are [[Wrestling/ReyMysterioJr Rey Mysterio's]] 619 to the rear, and Wrestling/{{Sheamus}}' Brogue Kick to the butt rather than the face.

* [[EggshellClothing Peewee Piranha]] from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2'' is apparantly defeated this way, as with {{Roll|ingAttack}}odillo.

* ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'' invokes this when you're talking to a salarian engineer on the Nexus about [[BadBoss a corrupt administrative assistant who abuses the staff]]. Things got so bad at one point that another administrative assistant, a krogan woman named Kesh, had to "literally" kick him out of engineering. You can ask the salarian how literal it was, and she'll gleefully state "[[PunctuatedForEmphasis Boot. To. Ass.]] It was glorious."

* Justified in ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja''. After analyzing Franz Rayner's movements, Dan [=McNinja=]'s son decides he actually has a Nerve Cluster in his Left Buttock, striking this point is the key to winning the fight for leadership of the Ninja clan.

In the episode "Clean Shaven Man," Popeye and Bluto spend the entire episode fighting to get a shave and a haircut, to impress Olive Oyl-- only to see her walking off with Geezil, who has a waist-length beard; so they proceed to take turns kicking each other in the rear.
** In the episode "A Job for a Gob", Bluto has to endure a lot of trouser torment! First he gets knocked into a cactus and gets a butt full of needles. Then he is bucked off the bronco out of his pants. Then he accidentally brands his own ass with x's and o's which Popeye turns into tic-tac-toe. Finally Popeye eats his spinach and punches him into a windmill which keeps spanking him. The whole cartoon seems to revolve around Bluto's butt!
* At the end of a military-themed ''WesternAnimation/IAmWeasel'' short, Weasel and Baboon are demoted, due to Baboon's incompetence, to "boot camp". In this case, "boot camp" consisted of the Red Guy and the kitten that they were trying to save wearing boots and repeatedly kicking them in the butt.
* In the ReBoot episode, 'The Showdown' Megabyte almost ass kicks Matrix off of the Principal Office.
* There is one episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben10}}'' where Gwen takes a seat on a cactus.
** In another episode, Ben and Gwen are on a [[FreakyFridayFlip switch-body situation]], in which they are captured. The only way to get out is with an object in Gwen's rear pocket, so Gwen in Ben's body has to kick it out. At first he protests, but takes it rather calmly after Gwen notes that "at least [he's] kicking [her] butt".
* An episode of ''TheSmurfs'', called "Smurf The Other Cheek" involved a spot that appeared on someone's face and (apparently magically) made them unhappy. It could only be removed by kicking them in the butt, but this transferred it to the kicker. Cue an episode of the Smurfs unusually full of ass-kicking. Handy even devised a machine to do the kicking, only to find the machine's operator was considered the kicker. [[spoiler: It turned out that kissing the spotted person made the spot vanish without a transfer.]]
** What did you think [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar "smurfing the other cheek"]] [[DoubleMeaningTitle really means]]?
* It happened quite a lot in ''WesternAnimation/FlipTheFrog'' cartoons.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'' episode "Super Robotnik", Coconuts creates a brew that results in Robotnik becoming a superhero. Sonic has a lot of trouble dealing with this new Robotnik until Tails learns that because it never touched the chemical, Robotnik has an Achilles' Heel: his butt. When in the middle of a competition of strength and speed, Sonic and Robotnik fight over a pool of yuck and Sonic winds up getting behind Dr. Robotnik and wins by... kicking his butt. Robotnik falls into the yuck and loses his powers, causing him to say "I think the jig is up".
* ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead'': "I'm kicking your ass, Beavis. Huh huh huh."
* This is how Finn gets rid of the staring horse in the ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' episode "The Eyes". It also leads him to discover [[spoiler: the horse is actually the Ice King in disguise.]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/BikerMiceFromMars'', the two-part episode "The Reeking Reign of the Head Cheese" has Lord Camembert kick Limburger in the butt after he fails to deliver him the city of Chicago as he promised.
* The ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales1987'' episode "Nothing to Fear" ends with Magica De Spell's fear cloud turning on her and zapping her in the backside with lightning. Scrooge [=McDuck=] even lampshades the situation by stating that he knew Magica would get it in the [[{{Pun}} end]].
* In ''WesternAnimation/AvengersAssemble'', Tony decides to play a prank on Captain America by having the latter test his jet boots, and Cap gets set flying uncontrollably all over the place. Cap got his revenge by taking the boots off in-midair, which are then sent propelling straight towards Tony's rump.
* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', Discord does this to Rainbow Dash in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E1PrincessTwilightSparklePart1 Princess Twilight Sparkle Part 1]], and Applejack does this to Rarity in [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks Rainbow Rocks]] during a sabotaged band performance.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' episode "Shoo, Shoe Gnomes", this turns out to be the only way to get rid of the cobbler gnomes that have moved into Dexter's lab.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{MASK}}''
** Near the end of the episode "Ghost Bomb", V.E.N.O.M. operatives Sly Rax and Vanessa Warfield are seen clutching their rears in agony after getting hit by M.A.S.K. weaponry.
** Miles Mayhem and Vanessa Warfield get shot in their asses with lasers near the end of "Disappearing Act".
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': Stumpy does this to Kaeloo in Episode 109 in order to make her angry. It doesn't make her angry since she knows that's what he's trying to do, but she notes that it does hurt.

* Yes, someone has patented a machine to kick someone in the butt. Yes, Website/{{Cracked}}.com [[http://www.cracked.com/article_15693_p2.html knows about it]]. No, you are not going to see a certain pothole.
** There is [[http://www.google.com/patents/about?id=7aKbAAAAEBAJ&dq=buttkicking yet another patent for another device for the same purpose]].
* In stage combat, a GroinAttack may result in an incidental LiteralAssKicking with combatants who practice the old school version of producing the sound of foot hitting the delicates.
* To give a specific example, a number of Music/WolfgangAmadeusMozart's [[http://www.freemasons-freemasonry.com/mozart_freemasonry.html life summaries]] insist that Archbishop Colloredo did this upon firing him.
-->"Count Arco formally dismissed Mozart in June, concluding with a dressing down and a kick up the backside."
