** ''Series/{{Mighty Morphin|PowerRangers}}''' Season 1, where Goldar, Scorpina, and the Green Ranger work together to take down the Megazord. Some monsters such as Cyclopsis, Samurai Fan Man, the Frankenstein Monster, and Mutitis would also hand these out to their zords, including the stronger formations. For example, the Dragonzord in Battle Mode could do little more than make the Samurai Fan Man lose his balance, the finisher was actually used not to win, but to free a trapped Kimberly so they could form the Ultrazord. Special mention goes to the Frankenstein battle, however, no hit they landed did any real damage except the Dragonzord Battle Mode finisher. The rest of the battle is him punching, kicking, throwing, ramming with his shoulder, returning energy blasts, and smashing with his ball meteor-hammer. At a few points, more sparks came out of Megazord than a July 4 fireworks display. However in ZyuRanger, their special weapons were able to break his bolt and chain weapon when they they aimed at one spot and kept firing, it didn't hurt him but definitely surprised him. Oh and that Dragonzord Battle Mode finisher? He just absorbed the energy and used it to upgrade himself into the even stronger, more mobile Zombie Franke, known in the US as Mutitis, who also delivered a no-holds-barred beatdown on their zords.

* ''Series/Suburgatory'': In the episode before the Season 2 finale, Tessa and Dahlia’s rivalry comes to a head as they end up breaking out into a surprisingly elaborate and brutal fight in the halls of the school. Satisfying, Tessa comes out on top.

** This happens after Worf (and Martok, though we never see him fight the Jem'Hadar on screen) are badly injured and exhausted after days of fighting the Jem'Hardar as part of a Dominion training exercise. Most of the previous fights -- at least the ones we see -- end with Worf killing his Jem'Hadar opponent with his bare hands. Dialogue states that Worf bested at least ''seven'' opponents before he had to face the Jem'Hadar First.

* [[Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit Elliot Stabler]] has been known to hand these out occasionally, especially when the case involves [[BerserkButton child abuse]]. Notable instances include ''Confession'' in which we see the aftermath of Elliot's rampage after a pedophile posts a picture of Stabler's underage daughter on his website, and ''Ripped'', in which Stabler beats a former partner unconscious in a courthouse bathroom after witnessing the man abuse his son.

* In ''Series/TheLateShowWithStephenColbert'', a faux ad for [=PonyPoints=] invites the downloader to whisper their darkest secret and get a picture of a pony. A man is shown admitting to his phone that one night at a tavern, he "really got into it" with another guy, beat the everloving crap out of him, and drove off so that he's now unsure if he's even alive. As he begins to wonder, "is this who I am", he gets the picture of a pony.

*** Rito and his band of four old resurrected monsters sprung a surprise trap on the zords, rather than being destroyed cartoonishly, the zords after taking some vicious beatings fell apart piece by piece.


Added DiffLines:

*** Special mention goes to Tankenstein, the last MonsterOfTheWeek they faced. The Mega Voyager is absolutely trashed, their finisher merely damaged his hand, which he re-healed anyway, [[NiceJobFixingItVillain this only reason this even was somewhat of a]] PyrrhicVictory for the Rangers is because when they lucked out and caught his sword when he was busy showing off and stabbed him, his impatience shone through has he grabbed the VillainBall when he grabbed the MegaVoyager and flew into space to self-destruct in an attempt to end it right here, right now, to kill the Rangers. Had he saw the battle through to the end, it would have been much uglier.


*** And then there's the time Damar tries to get Ziyal to come with him against her will. Cue Kira absolutely wiping up the cargo bay with him.

*** And then there's the time Damar tries to get Ziyal to come with him against her will. Cue Kira absolutely wiping up the cargo bay with him. Kira's pummeling is so thorough that Dukat, Damar's immediate supervisor and Kira's frequent adversary, takes one look at Damar and immediately presumes he must have done something to deserve it.

* ''Series/CobraKai:'' "No Mercy." Mainly between Miguel and Robby, though Sam and Tory run them a very close second. On the first day of school -- hell, the first ''morning'' -- tension between the RivalDojos hits the boiling point, leading to a massive brawl throughout the campus.


* [[Series/{{Life On Mars|2006}} Gene]] [[Series/AshesToAshes Hunt]] has a special way of police investigation that usually ends in this trope. One of the most terrifying encounters is in ''Series/AshesToAshes'' series 2 episode 3, where [[AnimalWrongsGroup activist]] Adrian Mansfield is defiantly taking Gene on verbally with some astute observations about political violence while receiving a pummeling in the gents' loos.
