So, there's two (or more) {{mooks}} attacking TheHero at once (hint: ''highly'' recommended in the EvilOverlordList). How to take them both down? UseYourHead! Or rather, use ''their'' heads: knock their heads into each other and [[TapOnTheHead knock both of them out.]]

And not just TheHero or TheLeader: TheBigGuy is also likely to do this, sometimes to henchmen of the BigBad. [[EvilCounterpart On the other side]], if not the BigBad, expect TheHeavy or TheBrute to do this to a pair of {{Red Shirt}}s, or any allies of TheHero. Even TheHero and the BigBad can be hit with this tactic.

Often has [[PlayedForLaughs comedic overtones]], despite being [[DontTryThisAtHome potentially fatal]] if done hard enough in RealLife. Sometimes used in place of a DopeSlap, although this variant generally does not knock the victims out. The comic variety is usually accompanied by a [[StockSoundEffect KONK!]]

* It pops up in the first ''Literature/ArtemisFowl'' book, when [[BattleButler Butler]] picks a fight with a bunch of dockworkers to provide a distraction for Artemis. He mentally comments on how cliche it is, not to mention being ridiculously inefficient from a martial-arts standpoint - but since the whole point of the fight is to be loud and spectacular, he uses it anyway.
* A lethal version occurs in Creator/RobertAHeinlein's ''Literature/TheMoonIsAHarshMistress'' during a riot.

** Appears in ''Videogame/BatmanArkhamCity'' as a "double takedown".

** Also possible in ''Separation Anxiety''.
* ''VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution'' also features this as two of the possible non-lethal double takedowns. One is notable in that it's preceded by a double ''NeckLift'', the other in that it's ''followed'' by a haymaker that puts their heads together ''again'' like a [[ Newton's Cradle]].
