[[caption-width-right:350:[-Guess why this move is called the "Hundred Hand Slap".-] ]]

-> "''Ten seconds ago I was in a different time-zone. How many times do you think I'm going to hit you in the next ten seconds?''"
-->-- '''Tachyon''', ''TabletopGame/SentinelsOfTheMultiverse''

A fighting technique in which a fighter punches an opponent dozens (if not hundreds, or thousands) of times a second sometimes to the point that their fists become blurred. Multiple hits are guaranteed, and even if each strike doesn't cause much damage by itself, the cumulative effect can be absolutely brutal. Common to animation, video games, and comic books, if you use one of these attacks in a fighting game, you can almost expect that this move's command will involve tapping the Attack button rapidly.

Rapid-fire fisticuffs are a staple maneuver by nearly every comic book speedster ever published. It is often combined with a FlashStep for extra effectiveness against a single foe, or for taking on crowds, resulting in a CrissCrossAttack.

When a character does this while ''armed'', it is a SpamAttack. This trope is a type of DeathInAllDirections. In trading power per hit for a large hit count, unless you're a LightningBruiser with both to spare, beware PunchPunchPunchUhOh. If punches are reatively weak, this may result DeathOfAThousandCuts. If two fighters capable of doing this attempt to outdo one another, the result is a PummelDuel.

Note also that while this trope is traditionally done with punches, there do exist many kick-based examples; it's especially common when it comes to higher-level {{Kick Chick}}s.

This is, to a degree, actually TruthInTelevision, as chain punches are an actual technique used in the Chinese martial art [[UsefulNotes/WingChun Wing Chun]]. Jeet Kune Do features a similar technique called the "Straightblast" which also qualifies. Though it's ''really'' difficult to keep at it for very long. Or with any power whatsoever. So it's best used in short bursts to catch opponents off guard. (For those not in the know, Jeet Kune Do is a Martial Art developed by Bruce Lee. Yes, ''that'' Creator/BruceLee.)



[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* [[LittleMissBadass Eve]] uses her [[PrehensileHair hair]] do do this quite often in ''Manga/BlackCat''. Hers is called the Ougon no Rendan ("Golden Combo"), but is mainly read as [[JustForPun "Gold]] [[AlternateCharacterReading Rush"]].
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''
** Grimmjow does this to Ichigo's face at one point in the anime. [[{{Padding}} For a whole minute while laughing his ass off.]]
** Aaand Gantenbainne Mosqueda hits Chad in the gut this way, too.
** Surprisingly, Yoruichi to [[spoiler:Aizen]].
* Tomoyo Sakagami from ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}'' has rapid kicks that can hit for about 1000 times. It is a kick variation.
* ''Anime/DigimonSavers'' gives us Mercurimon (Merukimon in the dub) and his "thousand fists" attack.
* The characters in ''Manga/DragonBall'' do this all the time. There's almost always a portion of any major fight in which the participants are throwing rapid-fire punches at each other. Rarely do any of the punches actually connect, because when everybody's got SuperSpeed they can dodge and block just as fast as they can punch.
%%* Prison Chain Ikari from ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}''.
* In ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'', Kenshiro's ''Hokuto Hyakuretsu Ken'' ([[BlindIdiotTranslation North Star Hundred Cracks Fist]], actually "Hundred Rending Fists") became so famous that most ''Fist of the North Star'' parodies will need to involve this, or spoofing other examples of this trope with his battle cries ("ATATATATATATATA!").
** Oddly enough, the "fist spamming" is also used several times by other fighters while bearing other names; Raoh's version, taken from the same martial art that Kenshiro uses, uses open hands instead. Moreover, Kenshiro's technique that dealt the final blows to the about-to-be-defeated [[spoiler:Souther]] is (superficially) identical.
** The anime version of ''Manga/GreatTeacherOnizuka'' has Onizuka not only pretend he's Kenshiro, but has him beat the crap out of some thugs with ''Hokuto Hyakuretsu Ken''.
** ''Anime/ExcelSaga'' has a great parody during their ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' parody: Excel uses ''Hokuto Hyakuretsu Ken'' on a gang leader (who looks exactly like Zeed, the first poor bastard who got hit with it in the original series), but instead of exploding, he gets turned into a cutesy, cat-eared, maid costume-wearing midget... who still has his tough guy face.
** There was a ''Hokuto no Ken'' [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fighting_Mania arcade]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HX4W-4B8uPo game]] where the idea was to punch fast. Well, as close to rapid-fire fisticuffs as you can get in real life, anyway.
* Bonta-kun from ''Anime/FullMetalPanicFumoffu'' pulled this off once against a yakuza member then finished him off with a right hook. Even his video game adaptation (''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsJudgment'' and ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsW'') kept this attack.
* Ippo's Dempsey Roll in ''Manga/HajimeNoIppo'' qualifies, though a skilled enemy can counter to stop it.
** Actually a subversion, as when Ippo tried accelerating it to true rapid-fire speeds, it ended up making the individual hits weaker. Similar speed/power tradeoffs are shown with Hayami's ''Shotgun'' and Itagaki's ''Porcupine''.
* Fantine does this to Takashi in the second Satomi vs. Skylark race in ''Anime/IGPXImmortalGrandPrix'' after her realization as to why she thinks they should break up. Doesn't work, he wins and they opt to remain JustFriends.
* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''
** A staple ability of many Stands is to launch a furious assault of fists. The most famous two users of this ability are Dio and Jotaro, who both have their own [[{{Kiai}} oft-parodied battle cries]]("ORAORAORAORAORAORA!").
** Giorno Giovanna probably has the most triumphant and ridiculous example ever when utterly destroying the sadist Cioccolatta. Seven and a half straight pages of MUDAMUDAMUDAMUDA punctuated by a single page of WRYYYYYY! Just in case anyone forgot whose son he was.
** Jonathan Joestar, the original [=JoJo=], is no exception to the family's legacy. In fact, he is the only one in the entire series without a Stand that can do this.

* All of Kenichi's masters in ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'', but especially Appachai.
* ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha''
** In ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid'', Vivio immediately forces her first opponent in the TournamentArc on to the defensive by employing a one-handed version of this trope. Her opponent eventually tried to evade it by attacking from above, earning her a solid roundhouse kick into the face.
** ''Anime/VividStrike'' has Vivio using this as her main fighting style, delivering several flickering jabs at her opponent whenever they leave an opening. This eventually leads to the introduction of Accel Smash Infinity, a FinishingMove where Vivio uses [[ElementalPunch magically-enhanced punches]] to repeatedly strike her opponent [[AttackItsWeakPoint at their vitals]] in quick succession until they fall unconscious.
* [[PowerOfTheGodHand ''GodHand Smash'']], the signature move of Rom Stoll in ''Machine Robo: Revenge of the Chronos'', is also partially this trope. It consists of Diving Kick to Fist SpamAttack to Big Ass Explosive Punch, and the final words ''"Sebai!"'' (a.k.a ''Punishment!'')
* In ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' Takamichi's teacher was capable of this (note that his punches have over cannon-level strength). Several other mages also display this ability.
* In Anime/MegaManNTWarrior, Megaman seems to be fond of doing this.
* ''Manga/MidoriDays'' did this in the manga once. In the chapter, Midori notices Seiji using his left hand a lot more instead of her. She pushes Seiji into several situations where he would have to use his right hand/Midori. One scheme was a fighting arcade game that required you to box. Midori was prepared, but Seiji used ''only his left hand'' to completely beat the game, in the same feel as Kenshiro's "ATATATA" but with "LEFTLEFTLEFTLEFTLEFTLEFTLEFTLEFT! LEFT! [[VideoGame/FZero LEFT... PUNCH!]]"
* ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'' has this all over the place. Domon, Master Asia, and Allenby all engage in both the punching and kicking variety (the latter two even use Rapid Fire Fisticuffs as part of their HandshakeSubstitute). Chibodee's ultimate attack, the Gounetsu Machine Gun Punch, does this with energy fists; it seems to be an evolution of his Burning Punch attack, as in an earlier episode we see him machine-gunning Burning Punches to take down a horde of Devil Gundam minion MS.
** Before that, the very first episode of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ'' has Judau take over the Zeta Gundam and, not know how to work most anything on there, defends himself by making the mech do just this!
* The best examples of this in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' are Naruto, Might Guy, and Neji. Naruto can and has used his clones more than once to deliver a massive number of punches to large foes; Might Guy uses a technique where he punches so fast that the chakra around them is lit ablaze in the form of a flaming peacock, and Neji's technique involves striking the opponent quickly to simultaneously shut down their chakra points.
** Also, Might Guy's ''Asa Kujaku / Morning Peacock'' -- which was also a CrowningMomentofAwesome for him.
** Minor villain Sakon achieved light-speed punches and kicks because he and his brother Ukon shared a main body, and the latter could throw his body parts out of any part of the former, combined with someone who's naturally quick and you have punches you can barely see.
* In ''Manga/{{NEEDLESS}}'', we have ''Demon Drive Foxhound'' that, when used by both the main character and his counterpart, starts a brief scuffle between them in midair where they keep punching each other for almost 10 seconds. TheRival is able to levitate, one of the few abilities seen that is unrelated to ''Demon Drive Foxhound''. [[RuleOfCool Blade himself, however, is not]].
* A comedic version of this happens to Hikage in Episode 11 of ''Manga/NonNonBiyori'' when she tries to forcefully peek at Renge's New Years cards before they're ready. Renge jabs her sister repeatedly in the collarbone with a speed that would make Kenshiro proud.
* ''Manga/OnePiece''
** Luffy on the Gum Gum Gatling Gun move ([[AlternateCharacterReading having its kanji literal translate to Heavy Wild Strike]]), as well as [[spoiler: its glorious upgrades, culminating (so far) in a move that is basically a Rapid Fire MegatonPunch. Bad guys do not get back up]]. In most of the video games, Luffy often has a finishing move right after the barrage just cause.
*** Luffy's fight with Rob Lucci was ''full'' of this. It was pretty much mandatory anytime either of them leveled up, or even downgraded. The fanbase now jokes about how Luffy and Rob Lucci are officially "true bros" with all their bro fisting.
*** This technique has been taken [[UpToEleven up to 11,000]] after the timeskip. You think Jet Gatling was awesome? Allow us to present to you '''[[CrazyAwesome Gum Gum Elephant Gatling]]'''. Take the standard Gatling, increase each fist to the size of a tank, boost it with Armament Haki, and let loose at a speed ''no'' slower than the standard. Mind you, a ''single'' Elephant Gun can punch out a Kraken, and Luffy nearly destroyed a ship the size of Fishman Island with this technique. ''This move is a potential island-buster''. Yeah.
** To a lesser extent, Sanji and Bon Kurei sometimes do the same with their feet, and members of [=CP9=] did it with their fingers.
** Whenever Luffy was hit with the Slow Slow Beam, Foxy would hit him repeatedly; making it seem like fisticuffs on speed to Luffy.
* ''Manga/OnePunchMan''
** Genos' Machine Gun Blows is an extremely fast and powerful serie of punches used mostly against ennemies [[UltimateLifeForm far]] [[ComicallyInvincibleHero stronger]] [[HighlyVisibleNinja than]] [[HeroKiller him]].
** Three words you really don't want to hear: "[[OneHitKill Consecutive]] [[MegatonPunch Normal]] [[NoKillLikeOverkill Punches]]".
* In ''Anime/OvermanKingGainer'', Yassaba's Rush Rod pulls one of this as a last ditch-effort attack. Doesn't work. He also has it ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsK'', where it's the Rush Rod's strongest attack (Go figure).
* The ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' Hitmonchan is able to do this, and one in the anime uses it to mercilessly pummel Pikachu in one instance.
* Cure Black in ''Franchise/PrettyCure'' does this, in what is probably a ShoutOut to ''Dragon Ball'' series.
** Other Cures do this, taking it UpToEleven in ''Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure'' where it feels more like ''Manga/DragonBall Z''-type fights.
* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' has the ''Kachu Tenshin Amaguriken'', taught to CombatPragmatist Ranma Saotome courtesy of the OldMaster and {{Miniature Senior Citizen|s}} Cologne. Cologne's TrainingFromHell involves him attacking her as well as taking chestnuts from a flame while trying not to get burned; Ranma develop a training using the piranha.
** In the manga, the first combat application of this training technique consisted of throwing hundreds of punches into a single spot so superhumanly fast that, even to a trained eye, they looked like the ''one'' punch accompanied by a "brrrrt!" machine-gun-like boom. Its weakness is that, since they're all ''full-power'' punches, Ranma can only let loose a few volleys of these before tiring himself out, which is why subsequent shows of speed use a flurry of faster, but less-powerful punches in a wide cone to press the opponent on the defensive instead of breaking through said defense.
** Consequently, the anime and video games [[IAmNotShazam mistook the training's name for the technique's name]], which led to them depicting Ranma [[CallingYourAttacks shouting "Kachu Tenshin Amaguriken!"]] when he launched his volley of ultra-speed punches.
** In the first NonSerialMovie, he uses it to [[KillItWithWater pelt an opponent with splashes of water so fast that they were like miniature cannonballs]], after realising said opponent can use [[ImprobableWeaponUser overlong chopsticks]] to catch his fists in midstrike.
** Prince Herb of the Musk Dynasty can also punch hundreds of times in an instant, overwhelming even Ranma.
** A subversion. Kodachi was able to jab like this with her clubs during the Martial Arts Rhythmic Gymnastics competition until Ranma-chan caught her hand and revealed that Kodachi was actually holding a dozen clubs in one hand to simply create the illusion of such a barrage.
* ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'': Sanosuke attempts to use this tactic against Saitou, reasoning that he can only counterattack once he has finished attacking. Saitou manages to block all of his punches, and returns the favor.
* ''Manga/SaintSeiya''
** Seiya, the Saint of Pegasus has a spam attack as his signature secret move, launching dozens (initially) of ultra-fast hits per second. Say it now:
** Initially, the Pegasus Ryuusei Ken is depicted as Seiya rushing the enemy and connecting with each fist on his opponent's body. Later on, the "meteors" were shown as hundreds of actual bolts of [[BattleAura cosmo]] [[BeamSpam launched from each punch]] that Seiya starts firing off while still at range from his enemy, and, if successful, they ''all'' hit the opponent simultaneously just as Seiya [[SingleStrokeBattle dashes past them]].
** Eagle Marin has a very similar technique, the Ryuseiken, and is initially faster. {{Justified}} as she's Seiya's teacher.
** {{Inverted}} with Shaina, who can do Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs ''block'', as she demonstrates every times she fights with Seiya and casually blocks every single one of his attacks, even as he grows strong and fast enough to throw ''hundreds'' of hits per second (Seiya cannot defeat her until he manages to throw a single fist that is just too powerful for her to block). In their first battle she even berated him for going against her when he could launch a mere ''85 fists per seconds'' (yes, she counted them).
** Aeolia, the Gold Saint of Leo takes this to a whole new level. His attack, Lightning Plasma, delivers '''100 billion rounds of plasma per second!''' Eventually, Seiya manages to match or possibly even surpass that.
* Melidodas and Ban do this often when they fight in hand to hand combat in ''Manga/TheSevenDeadlySins''.
* ''Anime/ShinMazinger'' states that its last episode has 100 Rocket Punches in it. [[UpToEleven It exceeds that]].
* ''{{LightNovel/Slayers}}'' has both Amelia and Philionel do this in one episode of ''Next'' (Amelia probably does it elsewhere as well), combined with their signature attack that turns their fists into magic weapons capable of harming low-level Mazoku.
%%* Happens all the time in ''Anime/SonicX''.
* ''Manga/{{Toriko}}'' has an attack call the 'Kugi' or 'Nail' punch, were he strikes at a precise point so fast that several punches can land simultaniously. The number of blows he's able to land increases throughout the serious going from '2 Ren' or 3 punch attack to being able to land 18 blowswith each arm.
** By this time in manga. He is capable of landing more than 50 with a single arm.
** Then there is the end of the anime [[spoiler: and now the manga as of chapter 293]] which takes the trope UpToEleven with [[spoiler: Infinite Kugi Punch!!!.]]
* In ''Anime/TransformersSuperGodMasterforce'', the wandering warrior Sixknight uses a series of rapid fire punches to bring down the Decepticon Pretenders in one episode. [[spoiler: In an ironic twist, he is killed in the penultimate episode when Black Zarak bombards him with Devil Power, causing Sixknight to explode not unlike the results of a Hokuto technique.]]
* During Yusuke's fight with Sensui in ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'', Yusuke counters Sensui's CounterAttack fighting style by binding their arms together with his wet shirt, leaving Sensui unable to block. Yusuke then delivers rapid-fire fisticuffs ''with one arm''. If it weren't for the whole SplitPersonality thing Sensui had going on, Yusuke would have won the fight right there.
** Also, in the final tournament, Yusuke takes out ''forty-nine'' minor rivals at once with one of these.
-->"Hey, ref? What happens if everybody gets knocked outta the ring like that?"
** Earlier, at the preliminaries for the Dark Tournament, Yusuke does one of these ''in his sleep'' when he's attacked by an opportunistic demon, mumbling all the while about how Genkai's training sucked, he was tired of training, and he wanted to sleep. Which was probably the CrowningMomentOfFunny for that arc.
** And then Yusuke delivers an insanely fast barrage of punches to Toguro after releasing his [[PowerLimiter Spirit Cuffs]], hitting him so rapidly that his muscles deflate like a punctured tire.
*** In a nutshell, expect this to be one of his signature moves in most mediums.
*** Hiei also has this in the form of his Jaou Ensatsu Rengoku Shou (''Wicked King Immolation Purgatory Scorch'') AKA Fists of the Mortal Flame technique, where he coats his [[ElementalPunch fists with fire]] and wails away. Some mediums may switch between either normal fire of demon fire, but Hiei clearly used normal fire during the attack's first showcasing in the Dark Tournament.
* ''Anime/SonicX'': Knuckles the Echidna did this once in order to break through a thick metal door.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* It's safe to say that every comic book speedster has used it a time or two. Or more likely, uses it as their primary attack.
** ComicBook/TheFlash makes constant use of this trope, since he can rapidly move his arms with his SuperSpeed. The more his punches approach the speed of light, the more mass they carry, and the more force they deliver, leading to his signature attack "Infinite Mass Punch."
** In the Franchise/MarvelUniverse, ComicBook/{{Quicksilver}}, Northstar, and the Whizzer also use it.
** In Issue 36 of ''[[Comicbook/BatmanAndTheOutsiders Outsiders]]'', a villainous speedster punches Grace Choi in the face ''25,000 times'' in just a few seconds. Even with her regenerative abilities, she looks like raw hamburger afterward.
* Franchise/{{Superman}} occasionally uses rapid-fire fisticuffs, but only against his more durable opponents.
* Blurr from ''{{Transformers}}'' used this technique a few times, but lacked the physical strength to make it very useful. Lampshaded once when fighting Thunderwing, who reacted far faster than Blurr was used to.
* ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'' does this on occasion to his more powerful enemies.

[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'': Dash is surprised (and delighted) when he discovers he can do this; however they end up being more annoying than anything else. Granted, while the mook he delivers them to does shrug it off, that's only because Dash had an OhCrap moment at the sight of the cliff face the glider was on a collision course with.
* ''Disney/WreckItRalph'': Ralph can punch extremely fast. So fast, that his fists look and sound like JACKHAMMERS.
* ''WesternAnimation/SupermanBatmanApocalypse'': Superman does this to Darkseid at the end of their fight.
* The Flash defeats Weather Wizard with this method at the end of their fight in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueVsTeenTitans''.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* The fight between Neo and Agent Smith in ''Film/TheMatrix'' features Smith slamming Neo against the wall and {{spam attack}}ing him with blurred-arm, rib-cracking body blows. Later, Neo returns the favor by using this technique to ''block'' Smith's attacks.
** Smith did it to Morpheus first in the bathroom scene.
* Liberally used in ''Film/IpMan'' by the titular hero.
** TruthInTelevision - kinda. Linking multiple straight punches in quick succession - also known as [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin chain punching]] - is one of the cornerstones of UsefulNotes/WingChun, the southern Chinese martial art of which the RealLife Ip Man was a master. However, in practice students are advised to keep it to short bursts: it's impossible to maintain the initial striking power beyond a certain point (not to mention the risk of interruption), and to prolong it further is dangerous and impractical.
** ''Film/IpMan2'' takes it to a new level with ''VideoGame/GodHand''-esque pummel duels. [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure MUDAMUDAMUDAORAORAORA]] anyone?
* Late Filipino Action Star Fernando Poe Jr. did this to some of his enemies (usually the fat ones, and squarely in the gut) in many of his action films.
* Stanley Ipkiss does this in ''Film/TheMask'' when fighting Dorian.
* In ''Film/AceVenturaWhenNatureCalls'' when Ace fights the short warrior, the warrior does this to him repeatedly.
* In ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'', Bane does this to Batman during their rematch, after pinning Batman to a concrete pillar. Batman dodges the last punch, ''which breaks the pillar''.
* Variant: in ''Film/XMenFirstClass'', Sebastian Shaw's EnergyAbsorption is shown as him doing what seems to be rapid fire fisticuffs ''with his whole body''.
* The Beast from ''Film/KungFuHustle'' is [[LightningBruiser so fast]] that he can achieve this effect ''in slow motion.''
* ''Film/UniversalSoldierRegeneration'' has the undead super-soldier known as the NGU doing this. He's played by MMA fighter and former UFC Heavyweight Champion Andrei Arlovski.
* ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'' has this as one of the functions of IronMan's Hulkbuster armor.
-->''Go to sleep, go to sleep, go to sleep!''

* In the ''Literature/WildCards'' series, Croyd Crenson at one point wakes up with his reflexes so heightened that he can use rapid-fire fisticuffs. He's also superhumanly strong, meaning when he does use this, he tends to turn the person he's hitting into hamburger.
* [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Otto Chriek]] during the climax of ''[[Literature/{{Discworld}} The Truth]]''. Described in the text as having fists that blurred into invisibility as he pummeled a man like a punching bag.
** Not quite as fast, but Wee Mad Arthur (a six-inch gnome) uses ''his forehead'' to invoke this trope on an enraged bull's skull in ''Feet Of Clay''. The sound of his repeated Rapid Fire Headbutts is compared to that of a very determined woodpecker.
* Not as fast as some of the other examples, but [[Literature/XWingSeries Wes Janson]], seriously [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown outclassing]] his opponent, manages a reasonable facsimile of this trope.
--> Janson fired off blows into Thanaer's midsection. When the Adumari pilot tried to block those shots, Janson concentrated on his ribs, and Wedge could hear occasional cracks as bones gave way under his blows.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Franchise/SuperSentai''
** In ''Series/JukenSentaiGekiranger'', Ran ([=GekiYellow=]) has a technique that lets her fire off hundreds of punches in few seconds. Her American counterpart from ''Series/PowerRangersJungleFury'', Lily, naturally has this ability as well.
** Dai (Green Flash) from ''Series/ChoushinseiFlashman'' also has a rapid-fire fisticuffs special move called "Super Piston".
** This is the main tactic of the [[Series/PowerRangersZeo Red Battlezord]]/[[Series/ChourikiSentaiOhranger Red Puncher]]. Having piston arms probably helps.
** The finishing move of the [[Series/TokusouSentaiDekaranger Super Dekaranger Robo]]/[[Series/PowerRangersSPD Deltamax Megazord]] uses a rocket-enhanced version of this for its' finishing move.
** ''Series/BakuryuuSentaiAbaranger'' is arguably the king of this in its NonSerialMovie. To finish off its EvilKnockoff, Abaren-Oh combines this trope with its brand of MechaExpansionPack (arm switching), switching arms per punch at breakneck speed until it delivers the coup de grace with its default arms...the left of which is a [[ThisIsADrill giant drill]]!
* The Seattle-based comedy show ''Series/AlmostLive'' regularly did "Billy Quan" sketches, kung-fu movie parodies in which the two combatants would sometimes engage in a humorous version of this.
* ''[[Series/KamenRiderDouble Kamen Rider Accel's]]'' [[FinishingMove Maximum Drive]] in his [[SuperMode Trial form]] is a storm of kicks, delivered in under 10 seconds. Played with in this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ICbQTgEqftA parody]].
* The titular ''Series/KamenRiderOOO'' also does a kick variant with the Cheetah Medal.
* The whammied [[Series/TheFlash2014 Flash]] does this in "Flash vs. Arrow" to his friend Oliver (AKA Arrow), who tries to stop Barry from murdering Iris's boyfriend Eddie. This show just how outmatched a guy with a bow-and-arrow against meta-humans. Sure, he's CrazyPrepared, but that can only get him so far. It's surprising that Oliver doesn't have multiple broken bones from the scores of punches.
** [[Series/{{Arrow}} Meanwhile,]] Shado can just about keep up with The Flash, as she demonstrates when fighting Ivo.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* Several Charms in the tabletop RPG ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'' allow you to do this with both unarmed attacks and melee weapons. Iron Whirlwind Attack, Ringing Anvil Onslaught, Octopus and Spider Barrage, Metal Storm, and so forth.
** Better yet, they let you do it with weapons that require time to reload and aim after every shot because Solars are just that awesome.
** Spam attacks are not only possible, they are the best possible strategy against worthy enemies.
* In ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', The Monk class has the ability Flurry of Blows, which has more hits as you level up.
* ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}}'': Martial Arts spends a few pages discussing the utility of this. Long story short, you're probably going to want some level of superpowers.
* ''Starblazer Adventures'', based on the 1980's British science fiction ComicBook. The Fists of Fury stunt allowed you to strike at an opponent again and again, wearing down their defenses. Opponents don't get the normal +2 bonus when using All-Out Defense against your attack.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Champions}}'' speedsters commonly buy this as an Autofire Hand Attack.

* A set of toys created for ''Film/DragonballEvolution'' involved characters made sort of like Rockem Sockem Robots. However, to increase the effect, the toys actually had ''two sets of overlapping arms and a ripcord start'' to simulate this effect.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' has several:
** Chun Li and her famous Lightning Legs AKA "Hyakuretsu Kyaku" (''Hundred Rending Legs'') where she repeatedly kicks her opponent from a tilted standing position with incredible speed.
*** Also taken UpToEleven with her Thousand Legs AKA "Senretsukyaku" (''Thousand Rending Legs'').
*** Seth from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'' has an upgraded version of Chun Li's Lightning Legs that strikes so fast all the player sees is one swing of his leg followed by the bursts of several hits.
** Edmond Honda's Hundred Hands Slap AKA "Hyakuretsu Harite" (''Hundred Rending Handslaps'') . This one's particularly dangerous as Honda can move forward while using it, allowing him to keep hitting his opponent as they get knocked backward until they're trapped on the edge of the screen.
** Dee Jay's Machine Gun Uppercut/Max-Out.
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4sUKcCrSPNQ Also his Ultra Combo in ''Super SF4'']], Climax Beat.
** Gen's Hundred Snatches ("Hyakurenkou"; ''Hundred Linking Hooks'') in the ''Alpha'' series.
** Rufus' Snake Strike.
** One on the ending attacks of Adon's Jaguar Varied Assault Super Combo is called "Thousand Jaguars", which is very similar to Joe Higashi's Bakuretsu Ken of Fatal Fury fame.
** The {{manga}} '' Ryu Final: Street Fighter III'' posits that the physical component of the Shun Goku Satsu consists of instantaneously delivering thousands upon thousands of punches, each of which releases a Hadouken upon contact. OUCH.
** BruceLeeClone Fei Long deserves mention for his second Ultra introduced in ''Super Street Fighter IV'' a la the Gekirinken (Imperial Wrath/Inverted Scale Fist). It's a CounterAttack that (once an attack is intercepted) begins with this and ends with the One Inch Punch.
* The Thousand Cuts starting style in ''VideoGame/JadeEmpire'' works this way, but is generally regarded as [[AwesomeButImpractical weaker than the other options available due to low reach]]
* Yoshimitsu in ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' and ''VideoGame/SoulSeries'' games has a [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning spinning]] standing slap combo, a crouched version and finally a leg sweep one.
** Slightly averted in that, after the sixth of any such attack, Yoshimitsu becomes dizzy and falls over.
* Joe Higashi from ''VideoGame/FatalFury'' has the Bakuretsu Ken (''Exploding Fists'') AKA the TNT Punch, which adheres to this trope, until it got modified into something different in ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters''.
** Ryo's Thresher Punch AKA Zanretsuken (''Momentary Fury Fist'') and Robert's Spirit Kick AKA Gen'ei Kyaku (''Phantom Leg'') from ''VideoGame/ArtOfFighting'' and the ''King of Fighters'' series. These do not require button spamming to execute, though, though they will still produce fist/feet spamming as they function more like attacks with an initial blow that much connect in order to unleash the full sequence of the attack.
** Ralf Jones (from that same game series, but also ''VideoGame/IkariWarriors'' and ''VideoGame/MetalSlug 6'' and ''7'') has a signature move called the Vulcan Punch, in where he throws a barrage of explosive jabs at his enemy. In the Metal Slug games, it's his go-to ''anti-tank'' weapon. He takes it to another level in both his [=SDMs=] - Exploding Vulcan Punch does a superpowered version where he mixes his Gatling Attack and the Vulcan Punch, ending with a monstrous uppercut that pounds his opponent right off the screen, while Horse-Mounted Vulcan Punch has him tackle the opponent to the ground, then proceed to ''violently punch them in the head repeatedly with flaming fists'' and end by rearing back and delivering one last, explosive punch that basically drills the hapless opponent's head in the ground. It honestly makes the player feel sorry for whoever is receiving the beatdown. He [[UpToEleven ups the ante]] in KOF XIII with his Jet Vulcan [=NeoMax=] and as a [[ShoutOut nod]] to Luffy above, he even TurnsRed and emits steam.
* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy''
** One of Sabin's Blitz techniques from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'': Pummel (''Bakuretsuken''), which is performed with the same command as Ryo's Thresher Punch from ''Art of Fighting''/''King of Fighters'' (See above). His ultimate technique, Bum Rush (''Mugen Toubu''), involved circling his target to pummel them mightily from every direction.
** "Pummel" is also the basic technique of the [[BareFistedMonk Monk]] class in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics''.
** ''VideoGame/CrisisCoreFinalFantasyVII'' gives us the Rush Assault LimitBreak, where Zack punches and kicks one target, moves on to a second one if there's one, then caps off by dashing through another (or maybe the first).
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'': Anima's Overdrive, Oblivion, has this before a giant magical blast to finish; in the original and NA versions, the move hits for massive damage after the whole animation has finished. In the PAL and International versions, every punch hits instead.
** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'', the monk job has the 2h (two hour, an ability which can [[TooAwesomeToUse only be used every two hours]]) 'hundred fists', which eliminates combat delay, and results in punches being thrown non-stop. This is occasionally combined with the AwesomeButImpractical ability Souleater, which consumes your own health to deal high damage to the enemy (this combination practically always kills the user), and the LethalJokeItem Kraken club, which can attack multiple times per round by itself...
*** In a slightly less spectacular but more practical example, the final Hand-to-Hand [[LimitBreak weapon skill]], Asuran Fists, delivers eight punches in lightning-quick succession.
** [[BareFistedMonk Pugilists and Monks]] in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' have a mechanic that is meant to simulate this. Whenever they finish their combos in the right order they gain a StatusBuff called "Greased Lightning", which increases both the damage they deal and their attack speed by 10%. Once you hit a high enough level this buff will stack three times, which means that there is generally less then a second between each of a monks attacks.
* In ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' series Fighter Kirby can use a technique known Vulcan Jab by rapidly tapping the attack button. Each lightning fast jab releases a small [[KiAttacks energy blast]] at it's apex. Enough rapid fire from this attack is actually more powerful than a Smash Punch!
* ''VideoGame/StarOceanTillTheEndOfTime'' has Cliff Fittir and his Fist Of Fury. His partner, Mirage Koas, has a similar move called Infinity Kick. It might not use her hands, but it's still unarmed combat, so it deserves a mention.
* [[strike:Two]] Several examples in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'':
** Ialdabaoth's Kouha Kishin Ken. After upgrading, [[GameBreaker Apotheosized]] Ialdabaoth's Shinha Gou Shousen, which combines this with AirJuggling and finishes it all off by ''slugging your ass through a mountain.'' And the mountain doesn't make it.
** Zamzeed's Chou Shin Dou Ken, to the point that it's a blatant ShoutOut of Hokuto Hyakuretsu Ken.
** Soulgain has two attacks that are partially SpamAttack: Byakko Kou and Code Kirin (spam strikes don't make up the majority of either one, though)
** One of Coustwell Brachium's possible strongest attacks has this in spades.
** In OG Gaiden, [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsCompact3 Alion's]] Agares can clone itself and Hokuto Hyakuretsu Ken (yes, it's another FOTNS ShoutOut) an enemy from both sides at once.
* Millia Rage's Lust Shaker from ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'', even though it changed its appearance since ''XX''.
** Robo-Ky also has an Overdrive named ''Dame na Yatsu wa Nani wo Yatte mo Dame!'' (Whatever is Done, A Fellow No Good is No Good!) parodying Dio Brando from ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' as mentioned above: Dio attacks while repeatedly shouting "Muda!" ("futile" or "useless") while Robo-Ky's attack is accompanied with dozens of word bubbles containing the similar-in-meaning "Dame!"
** Also, Jam's hidden overdrive is a 100 hit combo named Tousai Hyakuretsuken (Battle Smashing Amber Rending Fists), and most likely a homage to ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' even in its naming as a Japanese pun.
** Speaking of ''Guilty Gear'', its sequel series ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' makes this trope a component of Makoto Nanaya's [[FinishingMove Astral Heat]].
--> ''Rise, power of the stars! [[ShoutOut Aaaaaaatatatatatatatatatatatata!]] [[MegatonPunch PLANET]] [[DetonationMoon CRUSHER!!]]''
* The fistfighter skill in ''VideoGame/TalesSeries'', ''Rengadan'' and sometimes spells like Lightning and Grave also qualify.
** From ''VideoGame/TalesOfLegendia'', Senel's Wyrm Rush (''Bakuryuuken''; Bursting Dragon Fist) and Swallow Storm (''Renga Hienkyaku''; Chain Fang Flying Swallow Leg) especially when combined.
** Also from ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'', there's Anise's Mystic Arte Final Fury and Sync's Harrowing Gale.
** In ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'', Yuri's Brutal Fang (''Gouretsushuu''; Biting Fury Assault) arte allows him to punch the enemy as many as 107 times in rapid succession with the right timing.
* ''[[VideoGame/{{Onmyoji}} Onmyōji]]'': Itsumade's basic skill consists of her delivering multiple melee hits.
* Hitmonchan, a boxing monster from ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''; according to the Pokedex in the original games, when it looks like it's just standing around, it's because its actually throwing ''mind-bogglingly lightning-fast'' volleys of punches (likely represented by Comet Punch).
** Taken further in the [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} anime]] and ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'' with all three Hitmons. Hitmonlee's legbands are even implied to actually be springlike...
** The animation for the Fighting-type move Close Combat fits this trope perfectly. Even if the user in question doesn't actually have fists...
** The same goes for the Steel-type move Bullet Punch.
** The Fighting-Type Z-Move All-Out Pummeling has an animation base on this trope.
** The Pokemon Machamp is frequently described in the Pokedex as an instance of this, like claiming it can throw 1000 punches in 2 seconds. [[GameplayAndStorySegregation We see little evidence of this in the games themselves]], except in ''Videogame/PokkenTournament'', where its [[LimitBreak Synergy Burst Attack]] does indeed deal 1000 hits with nearly-invisible punches.
* Characters such as Fox, Sheik, Kirby and Captain Falcon have attacks like this in the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' games. Lucario's "On-Hit-Cancel" system allows him to perform combos like this.
** [[VideoGame/PunchOut Little Mac]], from the 3DS and Wii U games, plays like this, [[LightningBruiser hitting fast and hard]].
* Some partner moves in ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' work like this, scoring multiple attacks that do one damage each. Due to the way defense works in the game, these attacks are normally completely useless against enemies that have a defense stat greater than 0.
* Some fighting games have code in place to break up attempts at spam attacks, such as automatically making it miss if used more than twice in a row.
* Hinata's Rengekiken (''Chain Striking Fist'') from ''VideoGame/RivalSchools''.
* ''VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe'' has the Red Hot One Hundred, the most useful move in the series. Essentially distorting time to allow you to punch so fast the enemy can't do anything about it.
** Also a subversion in that from our perspective, he's punching at a perfectly normal rate of speed.
** The only problem with the Red Hot One Hundred is that, unless you take it out fast enough, the game takes pity on the poor enemy you're beating up and grants them a brief temporary invulnerability (just like you get every time you get hit), forcing you to wait until an opening comes around to start again.
* Lead character Ace Wilder in ''VideoGame/AcesWildManicBrawlingAction'' uses an attack similar to E. Honda's as the conclusion to his basic rapid attack.
* ''VideoGame/GodHand'' is all about punching people, be it really hard or really quickly (or really hard and really quickly). As such, spamming attacks comes in a variety of flavors. Build yourself a twenty-hit combo with the right moves, mash buttons when prompted with the "Pummel" command to deliver a volley of blows to your enemy's midsection, or use "100 Fists" to throw a barrage of punches that culminates in you launching the poor fool into the [[ATwinkleInTheSky Milky Way]]. Your fights with Azel, Gene's rival and self-styled "Devil Hand," are especially awesome because you can get into a ''PummelDuel'' with him.
** Also present in the game's SpiritualSuccessor, ''VideoGame/MadWorld''. In the final boss fight against [[spoiler:The Black Baron]], the Power Struggle between him and Jack starts with a pummel duel similar to Gene and Azel above (Although it quickly changes to several ''CrossCounter''s after a bit of pummeling)
** Found yet again in ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' in the battles between Bayonetta and Jeanne. With giant fists made of hair nonetheless. Also the primary form of melee attack used by the ''BonusBoss'' of the same game ''[[spoiler:Rodin]]''
** Also found in ''VideoGame/{{Vanquish}}'', when ever Sam Gideon fights one of [[BigBad Victor Zaitsev's]] Bogeys. He even does this with two of them at the same time!
** In ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance'', Raiden performs this twice on the final boss. Unlike the above examples, all it does is illustrate how tough the boss is as he {{No Sell}}s the attacks. The final boss himself also performs this to Raiden shortly after.
** Done YET AGAIN in ''VideoGame/AnarchyReigns'' (wow, Creator/PlatinumGames / Clover Studios seem to love this trope, don't they?). Whenever two characters get into a Rampage and strike one another, they engage in this, with the player tapping buttons to overwhelm the opponent. This usually results in an OneHitKill, although it's not just present when two players attack one another. It also happens when a Rampage attack is unleashed on a GiantMook or opponent who isn't near death or in Rampage mode. Of course, certain characters (particularly [[KickChick females]]) kick rather than punch.
** Done [[RunningGag ONCE AGAIN]] in ''VideoGame/TheWonderful101'', where Wonder Red often does this on certain boss fights as a part of a finisher. Did we mention that the fist in question he uses is friggin' '''[[PowerFist gigantic]]'''?
* ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}''
** ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight Symphony of the Night]]'' has the Kaiser Knuckle and Fist of Tulkas, which share a blurry-punch-spam special attack.
** ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaPortraitOfRuin Portrait of Ruin]]'' has the BossRush reward of the Illusion Fist. It's like the [[SpamAttack Crissaegrim/Valmanway]], except with less range, but it's still insanely good.
* In ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'', Robo's "Uzzi Punch" Tech consists of him running up close and smashing the enemy with repeated punches. This is what happens when one combines this trope with the RocketPunch.
* ''VideoGame/MagicalBattleArena'': the ''title character of Manga/CardcaptorSakura'', thanks to THE FIGHT. Watching sweet, kind, gentle, Sakura Kinomoto bust out a 16-hit rapid punch and kick combo on a hapless opponent is both jarring and awesome.
* ''VideoGame/SpiderManWebOfShadows'' had more than a few moves like this. In the red and blue suit, Spidey can unleash a flurry of punches and in the black suit, he has more than one type of tentacle flurries.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i40tQAF5bUs One]] of the ComicBook/TheFlash's Heroic Brutalities in ''VideoGame/MortalKombatVsDCUniverse'' is this.
* Too many attacks in ''[[VideoGame/JumpSuperStars Jump Ultimate Stars]]'' to count, especially since most of it's already traced back in the anime and manga folder above.
* In ''VideoGame/EliteBeatAgents'', this is how Sam the dog fights off an army of other dogs.
* In the [=PS360=] version(s) of ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'', this is Sonic's preferred method of disposing of Nightmares as the Werehog through a variety of these kinds of attacks.
* ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' has several attacks like this. Flurry is part of the SuperSpeed power pool, while Shadow Maul (and the Sands of Mu temporary power/Veteran's reward power that copies it) is based on negative energy, and One Thousand Cuts is the ultimate [[DuelWielding Dual Blades]] attack.
** Even better is that these attacks are cone-based, meaning they can hit up to five targets in front of you simultaneously.
** Unfortunately, it's one attack roll, so if you miss you'll just be standing there punching air with a hilarious "miss" sound effect. Due to [[UrbanLegendOfZelda negative energy's accuracy issues]], this led to the FanNickname "Shadow Whiff."
** The rapid-fire attacks in the game require that the player is locked onto the enemy's targeting reticle. This leads to an amusing side-effect: if the enemy runs away after the Flurry animation has started, the fleeing opponent will continue to be assaulted by phantom punches, making it possible to beat the snot out of a mook from across the street.
* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}''
** In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'', when you have enough action points in VATS and stack up enough melee attacks, you can get five or six punches on an opponent (seen in slow motion) before they can begin to react, at least giving the illusion of this effect.
** Similarly in the earlier games, a couple levels of Bonus HTH would drop the duration of a punch down to 1 AP, allowing some characters (especially on [[PsychoSerum chems]]) well over a dozen blows a turn.
* ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}''
** Vulcan Blaze, Adell's final special attack from ''VideoGame/Disgaea2CursedMemories'', is of this nature.
** The Nekomata class in [[VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness the first game]] also has a very self-explanatory attack called Fists of Fury. (changed to Cat Fight in the second and third games). In the fourth game, it parodies [[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar Hokuto Hyakuretsu Ken]], with the Nekomata saying "nya" with every punch, and the name of the move appearing on the screen shortly before the target suddenly explodes.
** [[VideoGame/Disgaea3AbsenceOfJustice Mr. Champloo's]] Chef's Special attack begins with a fist flurry. His Shredder Kick uses the kicking variant.
* The Kick13 and Hyper Fist moves from ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'' qualify, as do some of Nero's Buster moves.
* Shortly after the game's release, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93IOL_pYkp4 this]] was possible in ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'' by way of [[GoodBadBugs bug exploiting]].
* Ichirin's partner Unzan from ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' invokes this trope with his [[MemeticMutation BRO-]][[PowerFist fist]] [[BulletHell danmaku]].
** In a straighter example, we have resident martial artist Hong Meiling with her Searing Red Fist and Intense Rainbow Fist from the Fighting Game spin-offs.
* When Lo Wang of ''VideoGame/ShadowWarrior'' isn't slicing bad guys up with his sword, he's delivering a dose of this.
* ''Franchise/DonkeyKong''
** Every boss fight in ''Videogame/DonkeyKongJungleBeat'' features Donkey Kong delivering savage beatings onto his opponent, although certain [[{{Mook}} smaller-scale baddies]] can also suffer this treatment in specific situations. This is a rare instance where the player character is actually a far more brutal and violent figher than any bad guy; I wouldn't be surprised if DK could go as high as eight or nine rapid-fire punches a second.
** In ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountryReturns'', Diddy also gains this ability.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OwxQAHz7Qvw "The One"]] combo in ''VideoGame/TheMatrixPathOfNeo'' does this quite thoroughly.
* The ''VideoGame/GanbareGoemon'' games featuring [[HumongousMecha Impact]] include a direct homage to ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' in the form of Impact's Hyakureppunch, in which the giant robot simply pounds rapid-fire on the enemy at close-range, potentially following up with a devastating kick (and a hilarious sound effect).
* This is one of the psychs in ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'': Stellar Flurry.
* Bullet, ''VideoGame/FreedomForce'''s [[ComicBook/TheFlash Flash]] {{Expy}}, has three melee attacks. The second and third are the same as the first, but are respectively done three and six times in quick succession. [[LightningBruiser It adds up pretty quickly]].
* ''VideoGame/MitsumeteKnight'' has a [[IncrediblyLamePun Rapid Fire Spear Thrusts]] variation with enemy spear-wielding General [[FragileSpeedster Nescelaria]] [[RedBaron of the Gale]], who uses this as his LimitBreak.
* ''VideoGame/ZettaiHeroProject'': The Rocket Meteor attack with the RocketPunch L weapon.
* In ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom2'' Sabertooth, Wolverine and a few others have this.
* ''VideoGame/InazumaEleven'' has "Bakunetsu Punch (japanese)/Blazing Knuckle (english)" goalie technique, executed by punching a ball repeatly to throw it away.
* ''VideoGame/AsurasWrath'' has it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJJOTeZcAzQ here]] and it is REALLY powerful.
** It's Taken To PummelDuel Levels later in the fight between Asura and Augus, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=xuBqEiV4F7E#t=135s as demonstrated here]].
** Even moreso in the DLC as Asura gets into one against [[spoiler: Chakravartin who has at least dozens more arms than Asura does!]]
* In ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara 3'', Ieyasu's fighting style [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98yhKZ82NY8 involves a lot of this,]] and it features prominently in his LimitBreak as well. Hideyoshi's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=03RQQkZ9ZCU fighting style from previous games]] possessed some of this as well, evoking quite a few comparisons to Kenshiro and Raoh respectively thanks to Hideyoshi's massive frame.
* Naturally, ''VideoGame/FistOfTheNorthStarKensRage'' has this from the start. It's Kenshiro's first available Musou attack and it remains iconic of the various Hokuto-using warriors in the series.
** Hell, all but two of the playable characters - Rei and Souther - have their own variant, with Thousand Puncture Hand for the Nanto-user Shin and Transcendent Kick for Mamiya.
** Of particular note, even by the game's standards, is Kenshiro's finisher sequence. First a round of standard two-fist rapid pummeling, then a series of kicks straight from [[Franchise/StreetFighter Chun-Li's]] playbook, then a ''one-handed'' beatdown before landing the final technique (frequently ''Hokuto Hyakuretsu Ken'' just to act as the capstone).
* One of Batman's melee moves in the VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries, in which he stuns an opponent and proceeds to whale on them before knocking them out. While normal enemies can be quickly disabled, bigger enemies require a lot of punches before going down.
* ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor: Overclocked'' and ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor2'' have the Multi-Hit and Multi-Strike moves, which outright ''murder'' opponents that don't either Null, Absorb or Repel Phys with a barrage of punches when used by high-Agility demons or tamers (Hinako, Daichi). And if the user has Pierce, Null and Absorb are tossed out.
* DPS monks in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' has Fists of Fury, a highly damaging spell where the monk throws punches fast enough to create afterimages.
* [[VideoGame/ParappaTheRapper PaRappa]] in ''VideoGame/PlaystationAllStarsBattleRoyale'' has his [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin aptly named]] Thousand Fists attack.
* This is how the Boss destroys alien hotspots in ''VideoGame/SaintsRowIV''.
* ''VideoGame/MSSagaANewDawn'' has the Gatling Punch [[LimitBreak Boost Attack]], which is basically a HumongousMecha-sized Hundred Crack Fist, and about as effective--it has a high CriticalHit chance, does a lot of damage already before criticals, and usually wrecks enemy pilots (acting as a DamageIncreasingDebuff by lowering their stats).
* ''VideoGame/{{Malicious}}'' lets you do this when you get the Enhanced Fists.
* Any ''VideoGame/AkatsukiBlitzkampf'' character unlucky enough to be caught in [[MissFanservice Marilyn Sue]]'s Super will find themself raised in the air, right before being at the receiving end of 99 punches to the gut and a flying kick. All delivered in 5 seconds.
* In ''VideoGame/YoKaiWatch'' this is Jibanyan's signature move, the Paws of Fury.
* Axel in ''VideoGame/StreetsOfRage 2'' and ''3'' has Dragon Smash as his offensive LimitBreak, a powerful attack composed of eight punches delivered in less than three seconds, ending in an uppercut. It's one of the most powerful strikes a PlayerCharacter can unleash in the entire series.
* Early on in ''VideoGame/RiverCityRansom'', stores sell the technique books for Stone Hands and Dragon Feet, which turn Alex and Ryan's punches and kicks (respectively) into a rapid flurry of attacks. Available much later, the technique book for Grand Slam does this for weapons as well.
* [[{{expy}} Speedy-Joe]]'s special attack in ''VideoGame/PocketArcadeStory''.
* ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'' features this as the Noble Phantasms for Beowulf, Xuanzang, and Saint Martha's Ruler version. All are [[ShoutOut shout-outs]] to Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure.
* ''VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}'' has [[MightyGlacier Big]] [[MusicalGameplay Band]], who can power up two of his LimitBreak attacks so that they end with him beating the sweet baby Jesus out of his opponent with a [[PowerFist gigantic brass arm]] (as in, made of the musical instruments) in the spirit of this trope. He finishes the beating with a MegatonPunch that will [[PunchedAcrossTheRoom send any character flying and ricocheting off the edge of the screen]]. Most amusingly, he will actually go "TUBATUBATUBATUBA" in a ShoutOut to ''Franchise/JoJosBizarreAdventure''.

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* Used by [[VideoGame/Left4Dead Nick]] in the beginning of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfexEAExzhk Who's Cooking Tonight?]]. Later on devolves into a PummelDuel.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* ''Webcomic/{{MAG ISA}}'' -- [[http://mag-isa.thecomicseries.com/comics/pl/119403 In Eman's fight with Fr. Jose]]
* ''Wigu'''s ShowWithinAShow features Topato, who will hit you with thousands of tiny punches.
* One of Sil'lice's daughters in ''Webcomic/{{Drowtales}}'' is [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?order=chapters&id=1278 particularly adept at this.]]
* ''Webcomic/NoNeedForBushido'' gives us [[http://nn4b.com/comic/247 The Thousand Fists of Fury]], an ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin DangerousForbiddenTechnique which, if done wrong, [[http://nn4b.com/comic/322 may break the user's hand]].
* In ''Webcomic/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob,'' Nemesites come from [[LightWorlder a low gravity planet]] and so are physically weaker than humans. Fructose Riboflavin makes up for not being able to hit very hard by [[http://bobadventures.comicgenesis.com/d/20101026.html hitting many times, very fast.]] Having four arms helps.
* Saitama has an attack like this in ''Webcomic/OnePunchMan'', his "Consecutive Normal Punches", in which he strings together several of his normal, barely trying punches ([[CurbStompBattle which are known to obliterate any opponent in one hit anyways]]) into a [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill truly overpowered barrage.]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Every speedster active in the ''Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'' has mastered this technique. An exceptional example is Gyro, a supervillain who spins at ''extremely'' high speed. While spinning, he can extend his fists and end up acting like a circular saw to anything he runs into.
* [[WebVideo/LeeAndDena 3D Lee]] used this technique during the takeover of Molossia in ''WebVideo/{{Kickassia}}''
* Used by [[spoiler:Waluigi]] in ''Webvideo/MarioWarfare''.
* Scrambler of the ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'' has done this [[IncrediblyLamePun repeatedly]] in her martial arts classes at [[SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy]], but she only has normal strength so it's pretty useless against someone like Phase or Golden Girl.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Hak Foo did this in ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' against Captain Black when he was wearing an Oni mask. Captain Black, to [[WorfEffect emphasize how badass the mask had made him]], blocked all of them. Easily.
* Happens in the ''Creator/JohnKricfalusi'' cartoon "Boo Boo Runs Wild" during Yogi and Ranger Smith's fight.
* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' had ComicBook/TheFlash raining down who knows how many punches thrown at SuperSpeed on the downed [[spoiler: Luther/Brainiac fusion]] near the end of the second season.
** It's also worth noting that, in order to build up enough of a head start, he [[spoiler:''repeatedly ran around the world at super speed.'']]
** Flash [[spoiler:actually Lex in his body]] also knocks out Doctor Fate with this once.
* This happens a few times in the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short Dangerous Dan [=McFoo=] during the title character and his rival's fight.
* In the MickeyMouse short "Guillver Mickey" Mickey and the giant spider do this to each other a few times.
* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic,'' Pinkie Pie's sister Maud demolishes a ''boulder in mid-fall'' into pebbles with rapidfire hooficuffs.
* The probable UrExample is ComicStrip/{{Popeye}}, who sometimes used this technique after [[PowerUp eating his spinach]].
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' did this on occasion, Buttercup was especially fond of it.
* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'', Mace Windu and a battalion of clone troopers are surprised by a large Trade Federation siege weapon which is effectively a gigantic ShockwaveStomp device. When he loses his saber in the chaos that ensues, he proceeds to physically beat several [[EliteMook Super Battle Droids]] to pieces with his bare hands, including several bouts of Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs that are so effective that they sound like heavy repeating blaster fire, with similar effect.
* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' Garnet is prone to this, being the most hands on physical fighter out of the Crystal Gems, the best example is in episode 26 Ocean Gem when she's having a MirrorMatch.
* Lance does this on occasion in ''WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan''.
* ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'':
** In the episode "Usual Suspects", Superboy does this to Mammoth while under the influence of the [[HourofPower Shield patches]].
** In the episode "Darkest", [[SuperSpeed Impulse]] does this to [[SuperStrength Tommy Terror]], but [[PunchPunchPunchUhOh to no effect]].

[[folder:Real Life]]
* This is the best explanation of what Jeet Kune Do's 'straight blast' is. Punch the unlucky stiff as many times in the gut as you can, hurt him, and break his balance. Then, with his balance broken, hurt him some more. Imported from UsefulNotes/WingChun, not that this should surprise anyone; JKD's [[Creator/BruceLee progenitor]] was a former student of its parent art's most [[Film/IpMan famous practitioner]] in the twentieth century.
* The fact that it was only possible with special effects notwithstanding, one of the more memetic parts of the famous Reggie Vs. Iwata sequence of the 2014 E3 Nintendo Direct had Iwata-san [[https://youtu.be/4NcDZmmu9FM?t=41s channel his inner]] [[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar Kenshiro]][=/=][[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Star Platinum]].
* Some Martial Arts schools have drills where two students partner up, fetch a pair of hand-strapped pads, and one of the students puts them on, and the other strikes the pads. It can look like this if the drill involves repeated use of, for example, Northern Shaolin's Backfist-Rake Punch combo, and the repetitions are done fast enough.
