Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/Superboy1994'': Superboy and Knockout actually loose track of Silversword after Knockout punches him through a military helicopter and off into the Pacific Ocean somewhere. Superboy himself is punched across a city block on one occasion, and across an island on another by other individuals with superstrength.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'', All Might pulls one of these off in spectacular fashion against a Noumu with shock absorption as a quirk. [[https://youtu.be/-yed9zlTFsk?t=152 Best shown here in the anime.]]
--> '''All Might''': Hey, villain. Have you ever heard these words? Go beyond! '''PLUS... ULTRA!!!'''

Added DiffLines:

* The eponymous hero of ''VideoGame/SonicBlastMan'' has what is explicitly called a "15Mt Punch", which he uses to take out everything from semi-trucks to tall buildings to {{Giant Enemy Crab}}s. The gameplay in the original arcade version (which was essentially a "test your strength" machine with a boxing glove and a target) consists ''entirely'' of attacking these obstacles with, if you're strong enough, a single punch.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'': [[LightningBruiser Jean-Paul]] [[SuperSpeed Beaubier]] runs around the world to reach the speed of light, thus making his MegatonPunch carry [[UpToEleven infinite kinetic energy]] when he strikes [[spoiler:Gravemoss]]. The remains of the body are said to have probably reached Jupiter's orbit a minute or so later.


Not to be confused with the city from ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}''.

** The magic-potion-powered Gauls frequently send Roman Legionnaires flying so high that they don't come down for several more panels. In the same vein, most of the time their sandals, shields and sometimes also the complete armour stays on the ground with their owner forcibly removed, so that when the legionnaire finally comes down, he does so in underwear only. It's convenient for Obelix, who, as a result of a bet in one of the early books, [[http://www.comedix.de/lexikon/db/img/helmspiel.gif collects their helmets]] as proof of having beaten more legionnaires than Asterix did.

** The video game ''Asterix and Obelix: XXL'' and its sequel incorporate this: whenever an enemy is defeated, they fly off the screen at high speed, stretching like elastic. However, only a helmet (which constitutes in-game currency) is left behind, as opposed to a full set of armour.

* ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'':
** Karamazov gets a well-deserved one after pressing Leman Russ's lesser BerserkButton by believing himself to be a shard of the Emperor (indirectly insulting him in Russ's face; he believes a rotten, lazy old man who probably hasn't gotten off his mobile throne to stab something by himself in decades making that comparison should be answered with violence). We don't see the result, but we hear it. All the way out in the Imperial Palace, when the punch itself happened ''in the Warp''.
--->'''Emperor:''' [[AC:What was that noise?]]\\
[[spoiler: '''Rogal Dorn''']]: It was the miserable scream of an old man being punched in the face, [[spoiler:father]].
** Marneus Calgar's occasional bouts of frustration and [[ComicallyInvincibleHero Ultra-fucking-competence]] lead to a sort of variation, in that the fact the punch ''has'' a mark in the story in some way does not detract from the comedy. One is when he smashes Cato Sicarius's teeth out through his helmet ("I. CAST. '''FIST'''!"), and another is when he punches an Eldar Titan in the foot right as it was making a BadassBoast, [[OneHitKill one-shotting it anticlimactically]] after an exasperated insult.

* ''Series/{{The Flash|2014}}'' has "supersonic punch, baby!" (as Cisco calls it). Barry is able to use his speed to vastly increase the power of his punches. The first time he uses it to defeat a ChromeChampion. The second time fails because he tries it against a gorilla with PsychicPowers, who knows it's coming and catches the punch. In the Season 4 finale, Barry builds up speed in order to [[spoiler:destroy a satellite about to ColonyDrop Central City. However, since his own strength isn't enough, his KidFromTheFuture Nora adds her own speed and fist, allowing them to destroy the falling object]].


* In ''VideoGame/KirbySuperStar'' and its remake, Kirby delivers one to [[spoiler:King Dedede]] at the end of the minigame Spring Breeze. Taken UpToEleven in an awesome way in the remake exclusive Revenge of the King's final boss, [[spoiler:Masked Dedede]]. Bonus points if you finish him off with Hammer Flip as Hammer Kirby.

Funnily enough, ''Super Star'' happens to have a minigame actually named "Megaton Punch", but that's where the applicability to this trope ends; rather than involving sending anyone into space, the minigame revolves around trying to punch as big of a crack into a stack of cinder blocks as possible, with stronger punches penetrating the planet itself.

* ''FireEmblem'' has one in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Path of Radiance]]'': when Boyd teases Mist for weighing more than Leanne, she knocks him across a pool of water and into a tree. The animation for the "Smite" ability, which, normally, is available only to the largest character in the game (disregarding shifted dragons), is used for this scene. The only other character to knock someone out with a shove is the friggin' Black Knight!

* In ''VideoGame/EternalFighterZero'', [[CuteBruiser Kaori Misaka]] can deliver one of these for her Final Memory, called "Silent Pose": Kaori stands still after activating the move, but, if her opponents attacks while in this state, the game cuts to a picture of Kaori punching her up into the sky; then the screen fades in white, implying that the poor girl vanished in ATwinkleInTheSky.
