     Played for Comedy 
  • 21 Jump Street has this exchange after Officer Schmidt fires his gun at an attacking Mr. Walters.
    Officer Jenko: You shot him in the dick!
    Mr. Walters: You shot me in the dick!
  • The ABCs of Death: In the "H" segment, Frau Scheisse uses a small robot to put Bertie in the groin so hard that his eyes pop out on stalks.
  • The climax of Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls has the title character distract the main villain he's pursuing in a chase by tossing a car cigarette lighter at his crotch.
  • The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension. Buckaroo kicks a Red Lectroid in the groin after being discovered. The Lectroid groans and clutches himself as he leans against a tree for support before calling out a warning to the others.
  • In The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl, when Max tries to escape the bullies, he slips on a jungle gym and ends up hitting his nuts on a rope, causing him to moan in agony.
  • The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother.
    • The fencing machine does it to Sigerson.
    • The assassin trying to kill Jenny does it to himself during the fall.
    • Sigerson does it to Moriarty's assistant (Roy Kinnear) with a giant boot.
    • Jenny Hill does one to Gambetti during the opera.
  • Occurs in After the Sunset. When the gangster Moret's goon refuses to let the female cop speak to him and tries to grab her arm in order to steer her away from his party, she grabs his testicles and warns him that unlike the other cops on the island, she cannot be bought off and will persist in trying to put Moret in jail.
  • Ricky suffers three of these in Aliens in the Attic, one of which he was forced to inflict upon himself.
  • In the start of All About the Benjamins, Ice Cube zaps a perp in his crotch with a taser.
  • During a montage in American Pie 2 when a football hit Stifler's groin. Never mind this film had the glue sequence.
  • Threatened, with a sword, to perp-sweat a drug dealer in Angels Revenge.
  • Apocalypto features a self-induced, delayed-reaction one as the final step in a Humiliation Conga. Poor Blunted can't seem to get it up. His buddies have been feeding him raw tapir testicles in hopes that they'll kick his own into gear (or so they tell him-really, they're doing it just to watch him gobble pig balls), his mother in law is hounding him for grandkids on a daily basis, and finally the village elder provides him a topical balm he promises will help with his problem-just have his woman help apply it when he's ready for some lovemaking. It's another trap, one that sends both Blunted and bride screaming through the village in desperate search of water as the village elder howls with laughter. When you think about it, this rather cruel and unfunny treatment of poor Blunted makes just about everyone in the village come off as an Asshole Victim when the films antagonists come to enslave them. Disproportionate Retribution? Perhaps, but also some undeniably well deserved Laser-Guided Karma.
  • In Asterix And The Vikings" during the fight against the Romans one of the Gauls punts one of them in the groin which sends him flying over the horizon.
  • Such a gag occurs in two of the sequels to Attack of the Killer Tomatoes!
    • In Return of the Killer Tomatoes, Tara kicks Igor in the crotch near the end of the film.
    • At one point in Killer Tomatoes Strike Back, Lance Boyle attempts to spy on Kennedy Johnson while at the zoo, only to get bitten down there by a dog.
  • Austin Powers
    • Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery has two:
      • Austin performs one on himself while jumping into his car and landing on the gear shift, he grunts and his eyes widen, his eye brow raises and his mouth is gaped open and he groans.
      • Vanessa then pushes the gear stick even further back to get the car moving. Austin grunts and passes out seconds after.
      • Austin finishes off the last remaining henchman, Random Task, with someone's Swedish-made penis enlarger pump.
    • At the end of the second movie, The Spy Who Shagged Me, Felicity pulls it off on Fat Bastard when she kicks him in the "mommy-daddy button", causing Austin to lecture her:
      Austin Powers: "I don't care if he is evil, you don't give a man a shot in the pills. It's just not cricket, baby!"
      • Everything else she did to Fat Bastard was not only not cricket, it was pure Nausea Fuel.
      • Mini Me attacks Austin's during their battle in Dr. Evil's moon base, Austin is kneeling and he slams his shin into Austin's crotch, causing his leg to hit Austin's penis and his foot to hit his scrotum. Austin's eyes widen as he screams in agony. This is topped moments later by Mini-Me sinking his teeth into Austin's crotch, causing him to scream even louder.
    • In the third and final movie, Austin Powers in Goldmember, after Dr. Evil had the tethered globe lowered on his head, Mini Me releases the tethered meteor landing on Dr. Evil's crotch. He had to find his balls, "One, two,... and three okay I'm okay."
      • The titular villain was also a victim of this as well when Dr. Evil managed to reverse the polarity of the Preparation H tractor beam to stop him from destroying the world, and was being electrocuted by the energies backfiring on him (the key used to power the machine was his groin), which leads to Laser-Guided Karma. The origin of his nickname also originates from the fact that his balls were poured with molten gold in an "unfortunate smelting accident." Something that he almost had Austin's dad suffer from at Japan.
  • The Avengers (1998). Mrs. Peel kicks Bailey in the 'nads during their fight on the wires in Sir August's base.
  • In Avengers: Endgame, once Star-Lord sees Gamora again, he's ecstatic and goes after her. Unfortunadely, that's a time-travelling one from before they met, so gives him two brutal strikes to the crotch.
    Quill: [while writhing on the ground] You missed the first time. Then you got 'em both the second!
  • Baby's Day Out is filled with them. Both humorous and horrific.
  • Baby Geniuses: "And then the ski will come up and hit me in the gonads”. (This may not be the actual quote, but a) it's fairly close and b) this is Baby Geniuses we're talking about).
  • This trope is played with in a scene from Baby Mama in which one of the characters watches America's Funniest Home Videos:
    Kate: That kid's gonna hit his dad in the nuts.
    Angie: Hey, have you seen this one before?
    Kate: You have a kid with a wiffleball bat and a dad with a crotch.
    Angie: You know, it's not gonna be funny if you ruin the ending!
    [Kid hits his dad in the crotch. Angie laughs.]
    Angie: It is! It's still funny!
  • In Bedazzled (2000), Satan introduces Brendan Fraser's character to the devil's contract by having it (a very thick document that appears to be several thousand pages long) fall into his lap from what must have been a great height.
  • In The Beverly Hillbillies movie, Ellie May employs a highly-illegal wrestling move known as the "Hickory Nutcracker," which her opponent protests in falsetto.
  • This scene from Beverly Hills Ninja. A rare two way Groin Attack (Jump to 1:32).
  • Big Bully: As grown-ups, David Leary gets hit in the crotch with the see-saw by his childhood bully Roscoe a.k.a. Fang after David admits to tattling on Fang over a moon rock when they were kids.
  • The final scene of Big Fat Liar: Heavily implied to be what Marty Wolf got when what was presumed to be his first day as a birthday clown had him going over to the house of birthday kid—who happens to be the son of the same wrestler guy whose car he accidentally wrecked earlier.
  • In The Big Lebowski, Walter (John Goodman), throws a bowling ball at one of the Nihilists (Flea), hitting him in the balls. From his reaction, we think testicular damage is the least of his problems at that point.
  • Big Trouble in Little China. After Lo Pan's humanoid monster grabs Jack Burton from behind, Gracie Law kicks it in the family jewels to make it let go.
  • Birds of Prey (2020)
    • During her attack on the police station, Harley Quinn first kicks a police officer in the groin and then hits him in the nads with a grenade laucher.
    • During a fight in an alley, Black Canary first hits a man in the groin and then kicks another man in the balls.
    • During the battle in the fun house, Harley hits one of the male opponents in the groin with her mallet.
  • In Bitch Slap, Token Evil Teammate Camero crushes and then shoots off Gage's nuts, and note  clamps one of Gage's henchmen with a big pair of alligator clips. She also lands a kick to the crotch on her (female) teammate Hel, but the crowning example from this film comes in a later fight with Hel, when Camero finds herself on the receiving end of a groin bite.
  • Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, when Bill and Ted put "the Melvin"note  on Death. Even funnier in the original script, where as the boys are running away, Ted remarks "Death wears funny shorts."
  • Blade Trilogy:
    • Blade:
      • During Blade's attack on a vampire nightclub in the film's opening, at one point, Blade hits a female vampire in crotch with the butt of his shotgun, before finishing her off with gun shot, as she doubles over.
      • Later, during Blade's second fight with Quinn, Karen, who's hiding just below them, stabs Quinn in the balls with Blade's sword, helping Blade beat him.
      • During the climax, Blade takes out one Frost's mooks with a kick to the groin, causing him to freeze, before falling to his side. Judging by the fact we don't see him again, and the shot at the end of the fight shows all the mooks Blade just fought turning the ash, we can assume Blade kicked him so hard, he died.
      • But that's nothing compared to when Blade just goes to town one vampire's nuts to point he sends him flying off the ground with a final kick to the gonads.
    • Blade II:
      • Blade kills a one vampire by staking him in the groin, during the opening fight.
      • An unintentional and gruesome example, happens later in the film, after Snowman pins a reaper note  to a wall with his sword, instead of removing the sword, the reaper climbs up, escaping, but slicing opening everything from its lower abdomen to the area between its legs in the process.
    • Blade: Trinity: Abigail uses several, while beating up a small gang of vampire, in her opening scene.
  • Blazing Saddles
    • During the dance hall scene, while Lili Von Shtupp is performing a cowboy walks up on stage to bother her and Lili knees him in the groin.
    • During the big brawl in Rock Ridge, the preacher knees a mook in the groin, then calls out "Forgive me, Lord!"
    • When they break the Fourth Wall during the final fight and the fight spills into a musical number on a neighboring studio lot, and Taggart is about to punch out the effeminate director, the director begs "Not in the face! Not in the face!". Taggart complies by punching him in the groin, at which the director whimpers "thank you" before passing out from the pain.
    • During their shootout in the movie theater Sheriff Bart shoots Hedley Lamaar in the groin. That's gotta hurt.
  • In Bordello of Blood near the beginning Caleb uses his friend Reggie as a human dartboard he hits him in the balls with one.
  • In The Brady Bunch Movie, a bully that was picking on Peter gets hit in the crotch when Peter steps on a bass drum pedal.
  • In the Peter Jackson zombie-splatterfest Braindead (AKA Dead Alive), the vile Uncle Les gets nailed on three or four separate occasions, once with a severed arm used as a club. Another character is pissing on a zombie's grave when a hand shoots out and... makes Les look fortunate by comparison.
  • Bullshot (1983). Happens twice to Comedic Hero 'Bullshot' Crummond — once when he slides backwards down a stairway banister (and so doesn't see the knob on the end of the railing) and the second time while he's taking off his jacket (thus binding his arms) to engage a Combat Pragmatist villain in the manly art of fisticuffs.
  • Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. After Harvey says that there are no rules in a knife fight, Butch kicks him right in the 'nads, rendering him helpless.
  • The "I shoulda yelled ''two''!" gag from Caddyshack is classic.
  • Cannibal! The Musical: After gaining the upper hand in a violent bar-brawl beatdown, Alferd Packer unleashes the karate skills he learned from the chief of the Nihonjin tribe on evil trapper Frenchy Cabazon's balls. For the remainder of the film, Frenchy speaks in a high pitched squeak (rather than re-pitching his lines in post-production, the actor inhaled helium before each scene and nearly passed out several times from lack of oxygen.)
  • There's a near miss in Cap's fight with Batroc in Captain America: The Winter Soldier: Cap gets kicked in the stomach and lands sitting, whereupon Batroc does a jumping kick with the weight of his whole body behind it; his heel slams down inches from Steve's red, white and blues. They both spend a second gazing at this in surprisingly similar horror before popping to their feet and continuing to fight.
  • In Cast a Deadly Spell, Phil Lovecraft's pistol does nothing to the gargoyle ... but a kick to the crotch doubles it over long enough for him to escape.
  • The Cat in the Hat has this where the Cat poses as a pinata (It Makes Sense in Context), to which one of the bigger kids brings a large wooden bat (the other kids were utilizing plastic bats), to which the Cat waves the white flag of surrender to the camera. But since the big kid is behind him, he whacks the bat onto the Cat's scrotum, causing him to undergo a long period of pained yells and whoops (and apparently entering a fantasy where he apparently "envied the crotchless")
  • A scene in the 2006 Thai movie, Chai Lai Angels: Dangerous Flowers had the five female protagonists of the film battling against a couple of thugs while wearing nothing but towels, during the course of which two of the thugs get their balls grabbed and kicked.
  • In an early 1990s Cynthia Rothrock martial arts movie titled China O'Brien, the titular character of the movie, played by Rothrock, is confronted by a couple of guys at a local bar and as one of them attempts to have his way with her, China immediately grabs his right wrist with her own right hand so that she can immediately kick him in the groin, causing him to grip his crotch in a painful state so that he can walk a few steps forward before crashing upon the floor.
    • Another early 1990s Cynthia Rothrock martial arts movie, titled Lady Dragon, had Rothrock's character, Kathy Gallagher kicking the main antagonist, Ludwig Hauptman in the groin from within the final fight of the movie while its sequel (which had Rothrock play a different character named Susan Morgan) had her kicking one of Diego's henchmen, Jack in the nuts from within an elevator.
  • A weak attack, the mother from A Christmas Story hefts a heavy round present into the father's lap. In a high voice, he says, "Thank you very much!" When he unwraps it, he says, "It's a blue ball! How appropriate."
  • Say what you want about Click, but there's one great scene where Adam Sandler's character repeatedly kicks a guy in the groin while time is stopped, and the minute time returns to normal, the poor sap practically ends up falling over in pain.
  • This trope allowed Gabe Walker (Sylvester Stallone) in Cliffhanger to stun the otherwise unbeatable Martial-Arts-Expert terrorist Kynette and then shove him into a stalactite above.
  • In Clue when the house guests are confronting Mr. Boddy about the blackmail scheme, Mrs. White knees him in the groin.
  • Continental Divide has a scene in which John Belushi is attacked by a mountain lion. He survives - barely - by hitting the mountain lion in the groin with his walking stick (this happens off screen though).
  • In Crank: High Voltage, Chev Chelios attempts Grind Boots, but eventually lands groin-first on a rail.
  • Near the end of Crocodile Dundee, Sue rushes to the subway in an attempt to stop Dundee from leaving New York and during her sprint, she runs into a street hobo who refuses to let her pass, forcing Sue to quickly knee him in the groin so that she can continue on her way.
  • For both humor and drama, the dad and stepdad in Daddy's Home learn their son/stepson is bullied by a bigger & taller kid, so they advise using this technique on the bully to compensate for the size difference. Turns out the bully is a girl, to both dads' horror.
  • In The Dark Knight, Rachel knees the Joker in the groin to escape his clutches. This being the Joker, he's more amused than deterred and says "A little fight in you! I like that!"
  • Deep in the Valley has a Femme Fatale Dominatrix named Suzie Diablo who proceeds to destroy Lester Watts' (played by Chris Pratt) balls with three consecutive kicks! Watch! Deconstructed (albeit still Played for Laughs) as the impact is so violent that Watts vomits over the floor and himself.
  • Not really clear if it's meant to be Body Horror drama or really dark, mean spirited black comedy, but the Italian horror sequel Demons 2 features Hank, a heroic black body builder and de facto leader of a group of survivors trying to get out of building infested with demons/zombies, is ultimately brought down in the most unpleasantly humiliating manner imaginable during a valiant last stand when one of the zombie-demons disrespectfully grabs him by his penis while he's trying to scramble over a car. We are then treated to a closeup of Hank screaming impotently as his penis is ripped off of him off camera (which presumably is what kills him, whether from blood loss or humiliation shock is debatable).
  • In Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, Claire (the hooker) tells Deuce that she wants her $500 dollars from him and when he refuses to pay her, she proceeds to kick him in the family jewels before attacking him much further.
  • Played for laughs in the Norm MacDonald movie Dirty Work. After having a conversation with his friend's father, who, as a generally mean-spirited old man, strangles his testicles, Norm walks out, pulls his tape recorder from his pocket, and says in a helium-voice, "Note to self: Forget about being a father."
  • Near the end of the 1992 movie Doctor Mordrid, the main female lead, Samantha Hunt kicks a satanist named Adrian in the nuts while he was temporarily frozen in time via a magic spell from Mordrid and when the spell itself had worn off, Adrian had fell down to the ground while aching in a complete state of excruciating pain.
  • Disney's RocketMan: Fred accidentally horse-kicks Peacock in his lower regions while struggling to hold his breath during the test. Peacock breaks off the breath-holding test and gets a brief case of Helium Speech during his moment of excruciating pain.
  • In the 1987 film adaptation of Dragnet, Friday and Steerback infiltrate a Pagan cult festival and is able to help rescue a young female virgin named Connie Swail. During the chaotic escape, one of the pagan cult members attempts to grab Connie, but she quickly takes him out with a fast knee to the nuts, saying that she's terribly sorry while he falls to the ground in a state of excruciating pain.
  • The Bar Brawl scene in The Dukes of Hazzard movie has one when Daisy sends a pool cue ball shooting from a fan into some poor schmuck's groin.
  • Lloyd Christmas has a fantasy sequence in Dumb and Dumber where he uses a villain's scrotum as a speedbag for a while. Then caps it off with a bite.
  • Dutch: Doyle attacks Dutch, thinking he's an intruder, but in truth, Dutch was here to pick Doyle up from prep school for his mom. One of the attacks was to Dutch's groin.
    "God, I can feel the pain from my crotch in my teeth!"
  • Eight Legged Freaks: that Groin Attack looked pretty painful. The daughter of the female lead used a stun gun on her boyfriend's balls. Justified since he was being too forward with her even after she told him several times to stop. But still...ouch.
  • Another Mike Judge movie, Extract, uses the loss of a testicle in an industrial accident as the event that sets the plot in motion.
  • The Evil That Men Do:
  • The Faculty has some high-school Jerk Jocks doing this to Casey Connor by running him legs-open into a flagpole. See the Real Life section concerning "posting."
  • Furious 7 features one of the rare examples of a woman being subjected to Groin Attack, when Letty gets into an altercation with a group of female guards, kicking one of them while wearing high heels no less and earlier in the same film, Deckard Shaw punches Hobbs in the groin at least once during their fight.
    • Letty also gives one to one of the (male) "Russian separatists" in The Fate of the Furious.
    • Both titular protagonists in Hobbs & Shaw (and Deckard's sister) make liberal use of these in combat, being combat pragmatists, though most of notably in opening montage comparing their day-to-day life, missions included, after both getting into a fight, Hobbs gets the last guy with kick to the groin followed by an uppercut, while Shaw gets his last guy with a whip to the groin with a silk cloth before kicking him through a window. Also later in the film, Deckard's sister gets Hobbs in the crotch with her motorcycle helmet.
  • Played as a Running Gag in Fire Phoenix. The film centers on a Brother–Sister Team of mercenaries assigned to forcefully deliver a woman from South-East Asia to Hong Kong, with the brother being in charge of escorting their captive. He constantly gets kicked in the privates by her, and there's nothing he can do about it as he's not allowed to hurt her in anyway. He ends up complaining to his sister on whether if he could have any kids after their assignment is over.
  • Flash Gordon. One of Ming's goon squad kicks Flash in the nuts before the "football game" begins.
  • In Freddy vs. Jason Freddy Krueger tries this on Jason Voorhees, but ends up hurting his foot.
  • In Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare, Tracy confronts Freddy from within the dream world and as Freddy insults her about her past, Tracy decides to kick him in the groin, stunning Freddy from within sight.
  • In Friday After Next, a very painful version when Money Mike manages to temporarily stop a potential rape by Damon (the aforementioned son from prison) by using pliers to squeeze his testicles. Yes, it's as painful as it sounds.
  • In From Beyond (1986), Crawford knees a female nurse in the crotch, while trying to suck her eyeball out to get to her brains. Ew.
  • From Dusk Till Dawn. Inverted with Sex Machine's crotch gun...until you consider the Law of Inverse Recoil. Ouch!
  • The 40-Year-Old Virgin: "I'll stop flicking your balls, but I'll start punching your nuts!"
  • Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster:
    • Rodan picks Godzilla up and drops him groin first onto a power line tower.
    • King Ghidorah blasts Godzilla in the crotch with his Gravity Beam. Godzilla groans and covers himself for a few seconds.
  • This little tidbit from George of the Jungle after George has come to rescue Ape from Lyle's henchmen Max and Thor:
    Ape: George, remember everything I told you about Queensbury rules and fighting fair?
    George: Uh-huh?
    Ape: Well now's a good time to forget it!
    Max: Let's finish him off.
    (Cue dual groin attack from George)
  • In George of the Jungle-2 there are a couple of scenes. One is where George is telling two evil henchwomen to save the Jungle he has to hit them. After being slightly shocked the henchwoman looks down at George’s crotch, locks up smiles and kicks him so hard there is a shattering sound. George falls off the bulldozer saying he’ll rethink sportsmanship.
    • Another one happens just after involving the henchwomen again. As Rocky the Kangaroo is deciding how to defeat the women after kicking them across the jungle, he hammers them into the ground. The women are terrified not knowing what to do. As Rocky is jumping on their shoulders his 3rd jump slams the women’s groins into the ground causing them both to squeal in pain, this was a taste of their own medicine from how they attacked George.
  • One is actually delivered without physical contact in the 2008 Get Smart:
    Agent 99: Max has no experience, and I don't want him as my partner.
    Maxwell Smart: Well, that is a sucker punch to the gonads.
    • For the physical variety, earlier during the paintball exercise in the same movie, after a crack about Max's mother, Max shoots the taunter in the crotch.
    • Agent 99 (played by Anne Hathaway) shows that she's lovely as she is lethal when she kicks a goon in the family jewels during the confrontation at the party.
    Max: That definitely would've worked on me.
  • In The Goonies, Data's "Pinchers of Peril" bite onto Francis Fratelli's groin.
    • In an earlier scene, Francis suffers another one thanks to Data's "Slick Shoes"; Francis slips on the oil and lands on a log with his legs on either side.
  • In Green Lantern, Hal Jordan demonstrates his growing mastery of the Green Lantern powers by clobbering his much larger and more experienced trainer in the nards with a conjured boot.
  • Initially played for laughs in A Gun for George, in which it's noted that all of the protagonist's violent crime novels seem to focus quite alarmingly on someone being threatened with or subjected to violent genital torture by the main character, a Vigilante Man called "the Reprisaliser". It takes on a darker meaning towards the end, however when we learn that the protagonist's twin brother was murdered by gangsters who used a car battery to torture him in this way.
  • The Hangover has one of the leads getting tasered in the balls by a little girl at the police station. It Makes Sense in Context
  • In Harry and the Hendersons, a hunter tries this on the titular Bigfoot... though it was a delayed reaction!
  • Two posse members in Hatchet II are offed this way at the same time by Victor Crowley with an absurdly long chainsaw. Later on he buries his hatchet on one woman's crotch.
  • In the classic 1985 movie, Head Office, Rachel Helmes (the main love interest of the movie's main protagonist Jack Issel) knees a security guard in the groin when he begins to take apart her camera during a meeting between Jack and General Sepulveda at a dinner reception.
  • Hell Comes To Frogtown has Sandahl Bergman deliver three kicks to the "three-headed snake'' of the Frog boss. Hell's codpiece also painfully shocked him whenever he did anything unauthorized.
  • Z-grade horror Hell's Highway features the infamous Ron Jeremy having his penis cut off. Stunningly, he doesn't even notice for a little while, attributing it to a girl's "sharp fingernails" and not a knife.
  • In the mediocre comedy adaptation of The High Crusade, Sir Roger wards off several of these from his evil clone thanks to the chastity belt his bride has insisted he wear.
  • And History of the World Part I: 'Goodbye, head!' *block* 'Hello, balls!' *kick*
    • "I didn't even know them // but they grabbed me by the scrotum // and started playing ping-pong with my balls!"
  • The 1995 Jet Li movie, titled Hong Kong Shudanlongwei (High Risk/Meltdown) had plenty of comedic groin shots, notably used by both the Dragon Lady Fai-Fai and the Intrepid Reporter Helen.
  • Home Alone series:
    • Kevin's first move in the defense of his home in the original movie was to shoot Harry in the balls with a B.B. gun at point blank range through the doggy-door.
    • In Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, near the beginning of the "rematch" between Kevin and the "Wet Bandits", there's a point where Kevin rigs a staple-gun to a door that the two are trying to get through, and one of the staples catches Marv right in the "area" (and before that, in his ass).
    • In the third movie, Peter Beaupre gets a boxing glove to the crotch. Alex's face says it all. Also, Alice Ribbons accidentally hits Burton Jernigan in the crotch with a field hockeystick while trying to kill Doris the rat.
  • In Hook, Robin Williams gets shot in the crotch with a plunger-arrow. He exclaims "I've been shot!" in a high pitched voice.
  • Near the end of The Hot Chick, Jessica (who is actually Clive via a Body Swap) is currently working at a strip club and when Jake asks for her to come over to him so that he can enjoy himself towards her, Jessica walks over to him and stomps on his groin while using it as a stepping stone so that she can get up upon the dancing table platform.
  • Hot Shots!:
    • Buzz Harley gets hit in the balls by a supersonic plane tail fin (!) and squeaks "I'm okay!" in a definite helium voice. Which is quite unlike the falsetto squeak that should accompany the groin attack. They got it right in the sequel though.
    • Saddam Hussein is hit in the groin with an atom bomb. All this does indeed fall short of the sequel's epic ballbuster, though.
  • Hot Shots! Part Deux: In perhaps the most over-the-top example of this, Topper Harley hits his pit-fighting opponent with a knee to the groin... and keeps it there for upwards of 30 seconds. Everyone in the building (including the cheerleaders and commentators... and the wife covering her young son's eyes) is doubled over at the sight, and by the end actual walnuts pop out of the victim's mouth, clattering loudly on the floor. To top it all off, the opponent says, "You win!" in a helium voice before toppling over.
  • Hudson Hawk
    • While Eddie is secured to a chair, an aggressive dog bites his crotch.
    • After Eddie is knocked down by Butterfingers inside a phone booth, he kicks him in the groin. Butterfingers is fine a minute later.
    • Alfred the Butler presses his blade against Eddie's's genitals as a threat.
    "Come to think of it, there is one part of your anatomy you won't be needing..."
  • In Ang Lee's Hulk, when David Banner's monster dogs fight Hulk, the Gamma Poodle bites his groin and pulls it. Moments later, Hulk picks the bull mastiff up by its hind legs, and punches it in the crotch. Later as Hulk faces the army tanks in the desert, he's standing over the barrel of one of them as he tries to tear the turret off, and accidentally racks himself in the groin.
  • In the Mike Judge film Idiocracy, the moronic inhabitants of the future have made "Ow, My Balls" their most popular TV show. This Show Within a Show is one Groin Attack after another. The unfortunate star of the show suffers such "tributes" from fans at public appearances as well.
  • Inglourious Basterds has a tense standoff where a British agent and a Nazi hold each other's groins at gunpoint while sitting at a table. The Nazi ends up being killed by repeated gunshots. Yowch.
  • Inspector Gadget: When trying to train with a Guru to control his new cybernetic body, John Brown, instead of grabbing the orb as he was supposed to do, overshoots the orb by a long margin and instead grabs the guru's "Orbs", causing his eyes to bug out as he yells, mutter to himself in an extremely high pitched voice, and then be taken onto an ambulance while still muttering with a high pitched voice on a stretcher as well as with an ice pack on that exact spot.
  • The 1985 Chuck Norris version of Invasion USA features a drug dealer getting killed by having his crotch shot off.
  • This is employed by Black Widow on a Hammer security guard in Iron Man 2. Tony Stark barely escapes this fate when fighting Whiplash during their Grand Prix battle.
    • A truly ironic example comes in Iron Man 3 where the crotch plate of the Mark 42 armor goes flying at high speeds into Tony's own unarmored pelvis... kudos to Mister Stark he recovers quickly.
  • James Bond:
    • In Goldfinger Bond himself nearly suffers this fate, in the famous scene where he is strapped down to a table and a laser is slowly making its way up to his manhood, though in this case the attack wouldn't stop at the groin. The laser is obviously fake, but the table really did have a small flamethrower underneath it to complete the effect- the fire making its way to Sean Connery was very real, and the look of fear on his face is anything but fake.
    • Diamonds Are Forever. Thumper knees Bond in the groin (off camera) while embracing him seductively (so it's perfectly understandable that Bond tries to drown her later). Later on Bond himself does it to an Ambiguously Gay hitman - with a grenade no less.
    • The Man with the Golden Gun has two young karate-kicking Asian schoolgirls aiding Bond from within a fight against a couple of mooks and near the end of the battle, one of the mooks gets kicked in the balls from behind by one of the schoolgirls, which causes Bond to be most impressed by it.
    • The Spy Who Loved Me. Bond does it to Jaws (from behind!) while they're fighting in the shark pool room.
      • Karl Stromberg attempts one on Bond with a rocket launcher placed underneath his table. When that fails, Bond puts his gun in the tube and shoots Stromberg in the balls.
    • Moonraker. Bond knees Jaws in the groin again while fighting him in the space station. There's a "clang" sound when he does so, indicating that Jaws has balls of steel just like his teeth.
    • Octopussy: Narrowly avoided as Bond slides down a bannister with an end decoration. He quickly shoots the decoration off.
    • A View to a Kill: While dangling from a zeppelin by a rope, Bond smacks his groin against a building's antenna while a hilarious Stock Scream is dubbed in. Amazingly, he manages to hang on.
    • Casino Royale (2006) features the infamous scene where Bond is captured and tortured by having his balls beaten with a rope. Since this is one of his earliest missions, this presumably explains how he can sleep with so many women and not have any kids.
  • Heavily lampshaded in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, with a villain called Cock-Knocker. No prizes for guessing his signature move.
  • Somewhat averted in The Jerk, when Navin attempts to kick a goon in the crotch, only to have his foot painfully bounce off with a "ding!" Turns out, the goon's nickname was "Iron Balls" McGinty...
  • A female-on-female example occurs at the end of Judge Dredd during the Designated Girl Fight. Rico's accomplice kicks Hershey in the groin with absolutely no results, prompting Hershey to note that the other woman likely only fights men. You'd think a biologist would know human anatomy.
  • In Jumpin' Jack Flash, Whoopi Goldberg gives the Big Bad of the movie a big bite down there.
    • Beforehand, she bites down on a gun-wielding mook's hand, and at the same time, plants a foot into a sander-carrying mook's crotch.
  • In a deleted scene from The Lost World: Jurassic Park, The Dragon gets into a fight while at a tropical cafe somewhere. He takes the guy out in a couple of hits, and then the guy's friends carry him off. They carry him off in such a way that they accidentally slam his crotch into a pole.
  • Just Go with It with Adam Sandler sees two of them happening:
    • A little boy running around a Chucky Cheese-like place is tripped, ramming head first into the crotch of Adam Sandler's character Danny. The boy shouts "The man put his pee-pee on my face", Danny hollers "He put his face on MY pee-pee".
    • Adam also lands crotch first on a bridge.
  • K9: In the pool hall scene, Jerry Lee corners a thug named Benny the Mule, and clamps down on his twig-and-berries while Officer Dooley interrogates him! If you have seen the previous part of movie the scene where the dog, Jerry Lee, catches a pool table cue ball that was thrown at him, and breaks it in two with his teeth before he went ballistic, you can easily guess if he gave one wrong answer, Benny the Mule would have been gelded!
    • Jerry Lee grabbed a boxer in the sequel. His trainer screamed about the guy not being able to fight if the dog didn't let go.
  • Kintaros went for one of these in the Kamen Rider Den-O/Kiva movie "Climax Deka.
  • The Kentucky Fried Movie, "A Fistful of Yen" segment. During the big fight at the end Loo grabs a guard in a tender place and squeezes, causing the guard to have an anguished expression on his face.
  • Averted in Kill Bill 2: Pai Mei is as old as time and has reflexes fast enough and thighs strong enough to grab your foot and hold on so hard that you can't escape. It doesn't matter whether or not the Bride's kick connects before he "grabs" her: it doesn't work.
    • A female example occurs when Beatrix and Elle are fighting and are both holding the sword. Beatrix then gives Elle a swift knee to her lady parts.
    • Occurs again when Elle hits Beatrix in the groin during their fight to keep herself from drowning in Budd's toilet.
  • In Kingpin, Roy E. Munson gets a swift kick from Claudia. He makes sure to note that she got both of them. He proceeds to retaliate in the form of breast punching.
    • Later on he gets a self-induced one.
      Roy: [quietly] Shh, be quiet.
      [he trips and falls]
      Roy: Oww, I think I tore my sack.
      Ishmael: [loudly] Are you OK Mr. Munson?
      Roy: Shh, what did I just say?
      Ishmael: Uh, I think I tore my sack.
  • In Knight and Day, a mook tries to throw a knife into Roy's groin. He blocks it with a pillow in time and says, "Not cool!"
  • In the second part of the 2008 David Carradine martial arts movie, Kung Fu Killer, one of the companions of Carradine's character, Crane accidentally gropes his female opponent during an unexpected battle between Crane's group and a trio of female fighters and while he tries to apologize for it, the female opponent proceeds to slap him very quickly before kicking him in the groin, causing him much pain from within sight.
  • Played for laughs in Kung Pow! Enter the Fist. Master Pain/Master Betty's big Establishing Character Moment was having a number of Mooks hit him with staves, one of them repeatedly smashing him in the balls. And shrugs it off. When The Chosen One decides to see if he has this potential, it... doesn't work out well. It was said that scene was the reason Steve Oderkirk took up the Chinese film Tiger Fist Crane Fist to become Kung Pow.
    • Also inverted earlier in the movie, or at least that's what Wimp Lo likes to think with his "Nuts to Your Fist Style."
  • The Asshole Victim bus driver from the fourth Lake Placid movie gets chomped you-know-where by a crocodile while he's pissing in the lake.

  • The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
  • Leprechaun:
    • Halfway through Leprechaun 3, the sleazy owner of a casino, Mitch, forces his female employee/magician's assistant, Tammy, to do a striptease for him from inside his personal bedroom while she's under the hypnotic spell of the Leprechaun's magic coin. When the hypnosis wears off, Tammy is shocked to see that she may have somehow degraded herself in front of Mitch and as Mitch tells her that he wants an encore, Tammy gets angry by this and immediately knees him in the groin, making Mitch fall down upon his bed in pain before Tammy leaves in a state of disgust and frustration.
    • Leprechaun 4: In Space
      • A soldier, named Kowalski, dies this way - when his team initially believes to have killed the Leprechaun Kowalski goes over and urinates on the remains for fun, unaware that he is now infected with the essence of the Leprechaun, who proceeds to be reborn within Kowalski. Later on when Kowalski is trying to have sex with fellow soldier Delores (Debbe Dunning of Home Improvement fame) what they both initially think is just his natural erection slowly becomes painful for him until they literally see something moving inside his pants - he then collapses, legs spread, belt going, pants unzipping as the Leprechaun forces his way out through Kowalski's penis, all while Kowalski screams in agony. Just before Kowalski dies (presumably from blood loss via his ravaged testicles) the Leprechaun quips "Let that be a lesson to ya laddie - always wear a prophylactic!"
      • Later on the Leprechaun strikes Dr. Mittenhead in the crotch after creating the illusion of the film's heroine Dr. Tina Reeves naked to trick him into opening the door.
  • Lethal Weapon 3

    • Earlier on in the film, Lorna delivers a harsh kick in the family jewels towards a random thug from within a warehouse.
  • Before the opening credits of 1980 film Little Darlings are over, Kristy McNichol wordlessly kicks a teenage boy hard in the groin because he is harassing her.
  • The kiddie-football movie Little Giants had the kicker nailing the kid holding the football in the groin instead of hitting the football during the kickoff. Complete with a run-up first. He was going for distance, too.
    • Earlier than that, Kevin, the coach of the Cowboys little league team, was teaching them how to take down the titular Giants' star player (pee-wee league football is Serious Business). As he dashes towards the tacklin dummy/couch pillow, he goes out the second story window and lands straddling a tree branch (shouting, "Oh, doctor!") before dead-weighting into the swimming pool below.
    • Actually, his wife was holding the pillow, but chickened out just as Kevin was rushing her and got out of the way. He ended up plowing through the window as a result.
  • Little Man plays this with highly comical results. Darryl becomes victim to this three times by a baseball, a toy rocket, and a toy airplane.
  • In Little Shop of Horrors during the song "Mean Green Mother From Outer Space" Audrey II sings the line "... I'm gonna bust your balls!" and shoots a vine at Seymour's crotch, barely missing him.

  • In The Longest Yard (both original and the remake) a football was used to end someone's game ASAP PDQ.

  • Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings
    • In The Two Towers, a particularly jarring instance during a climactic battle scene features a mook getting hit in the crotch with a battle-axe, and his only reaction is to clutch himself campily and fall over.
    • Happens as well in The Fellowship of the Ring, extended edition, when one of the hobbits takes out an Uruk-hai by throwing a rock at his crotch. Same reaction as his fellow in The Two Towers.
      • Given the movie's interpretation of how Uruk-hai are produced, it's possible that the target's mild reaction was due to a lack of anything especially pain-sensitive in that location.
  • In Lottery Ticket the neighbor gangsta grabs the neighborhood hustler by the scrotum... and crushes it.
  • In the classic 1984 movie, Lovelines, the main female lead of the movie, Piper, who is drunk and intoxicated at a party, unexpectedly knees her love-to-be, Rick in the groin when he tries to get a surprising kiss from her.

By the end of the movie, Miles is carrying his bride-to-be in his arms, and walks into a short post, resulting in him pulling out a steel plate from the front of his pants.
  • In The Love Guru, Pitka actually feels the male pain when something similar to a genital is destroyed. When he gives Val Kilmer a flower and Val rips off a pedal, Pitka reacts in pain and asks "why do you hurt me, I know why". Another example of this and when Rajneesh prepares the nuts in a sling, as he whacks the "nuts" Pitka reacts as if his own are being hit by groaning the first 3 times the nuts are hit with a mallet,he exclaims "ow" as we hear as a popping sound, then he shouts "E-I-O-U" with the rest of the smashing then orders "geronimo" for Rajneesh to stop and says that is their safe word. When Rajneesh boils the nuts "to make them tighten up and get firm", Pitka groans "ooh" and "ah" then moans ow and says "feels good, I mean tastes good I mean what." When Cherkoff uses the capital of thailand prank on him, punching Pitka in the crotch, Pitka groans instantly and covers himself he doubles over and exclaims "Omar Sharif! My BALLS! and groans "oh-ho!" then drops to the ground still cradling himself he groans and complains "My 'Balls' you prick" and angrishly curses.
  • Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome - Aunty Entity has been looking for a mercenary to rid her of Master Blaster for some time. Sensibly, she tests each potential applicant-by having her bodyguards ambush the applicant in the middle of the job interview.

    • ... and you can guess the rest.
  • The Man with the Golden Gun has Bond attempt to shoot a Mook in the groin after interrogating him, only to miss.
  • Parodied in The Man with Two Brains: Steve Martin kicks Kathleen Turner in the groin, and she does indeed double over in pain groaning "Uhh! My? balls!"
  • In The Mask, Stanley Ipkiss gets one of these when he's too forward with would-be girlfriend Tina. However, because he's wearing the titular artifact, it doesn't even slow him down: "[high pitched voice] She is so coy! [normal voice] I love it!"
  • The Mask of Zorro: Don Diego disarms a drunken Alejandro by doing one of these with a cane.
  • The torture scene in Casino Royale (2006) is parodied in Meet the Spartans. The Le Chiffe stand-in keeps calling the Leonidas stand-in Mr. Bond while Leonidas keeps trying to tell him he's got the wrong guy. Le Chiffe then takes it even further by smearing dog food on Leonidas' equipment and setting loose his chihuaha. Par for the course with the rest of the movie.
  • Kay attempts this on one particular scarf-wearing alien in Men in Black II, only to find that the alien in question is immune to crotch shots. Whereupon Jay calls out, "Kay! He's a Ballchinian!" Three guesses as to what Kay finds - and does - when he pulls down the creature's scarf.
    • "Got kids?...Want 'em?" *cue biting* .
  • In Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: The Movie, the Ninja Megazord has a Big Red Button to be pressed only in an absolute emergency. Turns out it executes a knee-to-groin attack, which breaks the clinch with Ivan Ooze just in time for the Megazord to get out of the way of a big comet after luring Ivan into its path.
  • In Miss Congeniality, Sandra Bullock's character is demonstrating female self-defense as her 'talent' portion of the beauty pageant, finishing with the acronym "S.I.N.G.".

  • Monster-in-Law has a female version of this. Jane Fonda's character knees her personal assistant in the crotch. Twice. "Viola, I think you dislocated my vagina!"
  • The Monster Squad has a scene where Horace, known to his friends and bullies as "Fat Kid," stuns the Wolfman by "kicking him in the nards," prompting the famous line, "Wolfman's got nards!" Earlier in the film, the gang had debated at some length whether the Wolf Man was so equipped, including the phrase "wolf dork."
  • Monty Python and the Holy Grail. The Black Knight does it to the Green Knight while fighting him.
  • How the fight betweeen Johnny Cage and Goro in Mortal Kombat starts.

    Johnny Cage: Cause I’m gonna punch you in your fucking balls.
  • The Russians' favorite method of torture in Mortdecai. There is a car battery involved...
    "Open your balls."
  • A film called Moving Violations had a bowling ball fly out of a car in a spin-out and land right in an old man's lap with an audible "thump!".
  • Played straight in Mr. Deeds: Pam Dawson/Babe Bennet, when she has to fight Jan, who was a former Rodeo Clown and a very close friend of Longfellow Deeds, to find out where he is so she could apologize to him, attempted to do a flying kick into Jan's crotch, to which Jan reminds her after the action was done that such an action does not work because she's female. To be fair, Jan doesn't completely ignore the blows; she still grunts in pain during them, but laughs them off after.
  • The Mr. Show spinoff movie Run Ronnie Run features Jack Black leading a musical number called "The Golden Rule Song", better known as "A Kick in the Cunt". Sadly, the act is merely sung about and not depicted.
  • The Mummy (1999): In the climax of the film, when Rick and Jonathan interrupt Imhotep's ritual to resurrect his lover, Rick gets into a fight with Imhotep's mummified priests. He kicks one such priest in the groin so hard it disintegrates (not that there was much there to begin with, they were mummies after all), and you can see its pelvis break in two with the force of the hit.
    • Two in the same fight scene in The Mummy Returns. Evie groin-attacks a mook, and Lock-Nah groin-attacks Ardeth. Ardeth recovers quickly. The mook doesn't, but that's more due to Alex knocking a bookcase onto him.

  • In the Steven Seagal movie Out for Justice the hero delivers this to a louse who earlier, chucked a puppy out of his car, which lands in the hero's car. The topper is when the puppy urinates in the fallen man's face!
    • "Ohhh, is that a police dog or what?"
  • In The Pacifier, While escaping from a spy, Lulu is mocked as she assumes a fighting position which prompts her to send her foot into the spy's testicles. Gary the duck also does this on cue to one of the mooks, with the standard result.

  • Predator 2. Leona Cantrell grabbed and squeezed fellow cop Jerry Lambert in a tender place when he won't stop bothering her. Apparently this is a standard form of attack for her.
  • A Played for Laughs example happens in The Princess Diaries in a scene when Mia is playing baseball. Mia's the one holding the bat. While Josh taunts Mia, Mia is able to hit the baseball with the bat, and the baseball hits Josh's groin. It doubles as Laser-Guided Karma, due to how much of a jerk Josh was to Mia.
  • After a naked meditation session is interrupted at the end of Private Resort, a woman uses a big muscly guy's testicles like a 'stress ball' (they were just hanging there, so why not put them to use?). Completely oblivious that she happens to be using his vulnerable crotch as a stress relief device (even despite the moaning and groaning) she squeezes harder and harder each time she emphasises a point. She makes one last point and we get one final crunch. Joy and amusement fills the onlooking females in the group, and we cut to the end credits.

Rochelle decides that she's had enough and attacks the gunman herself, first with a back right elbow to his crotch, then a right kick to his groin before finally finishing him off with a hard right punch, to which she then jumps on top of him from upon the table and attempts to attack him much further before being pulled off by her fellow OCP executives.
    • In "Our Robocop Remake", a collaborative remake of Robocop, a would-be rapist is foiled by Robocop, and then another (with his penis out), and then another (again, with his dick out). Then it seems that every thug in Detroit, attracted by the sound, comes to the area to get shot by Robocop. Finnaly, a single naked thug grabs two women and tells Robocop to "fucking do it." Robocop obliges. Obviously, this is very NSFW. Link here.

    Toliver: Is that understood?
    Butts: (still disinterested) Mmm-hmm.
    (Toliver grabs and squeezes Butts' nuts in an iron grip; Butts' eyes go wide)
    Butts: (meekly) balls hurt, sir.
    • Butts also has this threatened against him earlier in the movie, when he puts unwanted advances on Vasquez, the only girl in the group.
    Butts: (unzips his pants meaningfully in front of a kneeling Vasquez) Hey babe, why don't you do me a favor while we're here?
    Vasquez: (stands up and gives Death Glare) Why don't you wait until I get my knife and do the world a favor?
  • While playing catch with the Von Trapp children in The Sound of Music, the Baroness gets a ball thrown at her crotch.
  • Spaceballs, where this is the preferred attack style of the main villain. Instead of Force Choking, you have Scwartz Groining (using an Agony Beam from his ring to deliver serious hurt on insubordinates)
    "No! Not that!"
    "Yes! That!"
    • This later becomes a Running Gag of sorts throughout the movie; every time Helmet gets pissed off, the Spaceballs cover their groins.
    • Then Helmet gets one back at him when Lone Starr reflects one of his Schwartz attacks back at him.
  • Spider-Man: Far From Home: During the class trip to Venice, Flash Thompson is walking around taking selfies when a random passerby punches him in the groin for no reason.
  • Stand by Me — first when Wil Wheaton's character finds a huge leech in his undies (Squick) and the implied but never shown attack of the junkyard dog; "Chopper, sic balls!"
  • Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country plays around with this. On Rura Penthe, Kirk manages to disable his ten-foot blue alien with nothing more than a weak kick to the alien's knee. Afterwards:
    Kirk: I was just lucky he had knees.
    Martia: That was not his knee. Not everyone keeps their genitals in the same place, Captain.
    • Hence, this makes this instance simultaneously a Groin Attack without fulfilling the trope name at all.
    • Parodied at the end of this Mitchell and Webb skit.
    Webb: Quick, kick it in the shins where it might keep its testicles.
  • In Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, Jar Jar Binks is kicked in the crotch by a small repair droid. Later in the film, he is dropped crotch first onto the barrel of a tank. In both instances, he exhibits none of the usual discomfort associated with trauma to the genitals; amphibians often don't have external genitalia. Well, he was in a little discomfort judging by the way he moaned when he landed on the tank gun.
  • In Stir Crazy, Skip and Harry are in a restaurant when a tall man and short taxi driver burst in arguing because the man refuses to pay the driver. Skip decides to be a good samaritan and walks over to defuse the situation. Just before he gets there, the taxi driver grabs the man 'down there' with a pair pliers and twists, which Skip fails to notice. Of course, the man is now far more co-operative and pays the taxi driver, all while Skip is talking calmly to them both. When the driver releases the pliers and both men leave, Skip walks away thinking it was all his doing.
  • Strange Brew: While Bob and Doug where playing hockey, Bob's team tackles Doug, where he falls to the floor, groaning, "My left nut!"

Pembrook tries to escape by jumping onto the bed. This only make Torkle hornier, so she kicks him in the crotch. She voices her resignation as she flees, leaving Torkle lying in pain.
  • In Suburban Commando starring Hulk Hogan, Christopher Lloyd grabs the Big Bad in his nads... with a bionic gauntlet!
  • Poor Harley Quinn gets a rare vagina-shot from The Enchantress in the climax of Suicide Squad (2016), it puts Harley briefly out of the fight.
  • In Summer Rental, another John Candy film, his character Jack Chester is hit in the crotch with a frisbee thrown by his son.
  • The gun-nut police officer in Super Troopers invents a bulletproof cup and has his fellow officers shoot him in the crotch to test it. It works.
    O'Hagan: Bulletproof cup, huh? I invented this gag, Rabbit. Only in my day, the rookie got naked. (fires the gun to the side, shooting out the car window) And we also used blanks. You're a sick motherfucker, Mac.
    Mac: Thanks, Chief!
    • Then Foster gets tazered in the crotch by Ursula after he accuses her of cheating on him with her captain and of "crapping on his heart."
  • Running Gag in The Sword and the Sorcerer by the Princess Alana as everyone says how much they're going to sex her up and she responds, "With what?". Backfires in the last take as the guy is a undead sorcerer without any balls, but still a healthy libido.
  • Tank Girl. The title character hits a Water & Power trooper with his own gun and grabs and squeezes the tender parts of two male Liquid Silver dancers during the "Let's Do It" number.
  • In the Jack Black film Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny, main character Jables, while leaving his partner behind, eats some mushrooms he finds in the woods. Turns out the mushrooms were hallucinogenic, which causes him to see some seriously messed up things, including the legendary Bigfoot. In the scene where he believes he's actually FLYING ON BIGFOOT'S BACK, he reaches out for the supposedly airborne guitar pick...and falls off of the tree he was climbing in reality, splitting his crotch on a tree branch, instantly snapping him out of the hallucination. Ouch.
  • Terror Birds: Taylor kicks Russel in the crotch when Russel tries hitting on her in the gas station.
  • In the original cut of The Thief and the Cobbler (and the restored cut), Princess YumYum does this to a vulture when she goes into the dungeons to look for Tack the Cobbler.
  • This is actually one of the few physical comedy bits that The Three Stooges seldom use. But in the short "Back to the Woods", Moe and Curly dragged an unconscious Larry, each holding one leg, from some marauding Indians. They approached a tree, each one ran opposite sides of it, and... well... ouch.
    • Probably justified in that traditional knee-to-groin attacks wouldn't have gotten past The Hays Code.
    • This was apparently a traditional British playground punishment called "posting".
    • It may have to do also with the quite enthusiastic way the Stooges played their fights and puns during filming, resulting in all sort of bruises and minor injuries. Repeated plays of the trope would have been quite, well...
    • The 2012 movie opts to hit a lion in the groin.
  • Noxeema Jackson, the drag queen played by Wesley Snipes in To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar does the grab and twist to a threatening punk after he heckles the town women following their make-overs. She then delivers an etiquette lesson, holding on all the while. The punk learns how to behave very quickly, as do all his friends who saw it.
  • At the beginning of the 1991 Japanese movie Toppuu! Minipato tai - Aikyacchi Jankushon (Eyecatch Junction/Mini-Skirt Commando) which was directed by Takashi Miike, two female police officers come across a scene in which a suspicious-looking man is attacking and threatening an injured man and that the two of them spring into immediate action when the suspicious-looking man prepares to pull something out of his jacket, in which the first female police officer quickly ducks and rolls herself over towards him real fast so that she can then swiftly stand up and kick him in the groin real fast, stunning him long enough for her to then slap him in the face, which enables her partner to quickly move in so that she can then swiftly grab and throw him to the ground in order to stop him. However, to the unexpected shock and surprise of the two female police officers, they soon discover that the suspicious-looking man is actually a fellow undercover police officer working on a separate case and that they had inadvertently got in his way.
  • Total Recall (1990)
    • Lori does this to Quaid twice the first time she fights him: once with her fist, once with a kick. Later in the film she stomps on them after capturing him. Geez, she must have some grudge because she once pretended to be his wife and must had sex at some points, huh?
    • Richter does it to a patron of the Last Resort during the assault on the place.
    • The little person prostitute does it to Richter's partner with a knife. Ouch.

    • The final scene of the film depicts the protagonists doing the same to a Mexican border cop.
  • Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen: Leo Spitz gets one after Mikaela, falling, lands on his groin. He also gets tasered there. By himself.
    • From the first Transformers live-action movie, we have a slightly unclear example. When Lennox does his Under the Truck move between Blackout's legs, it's not clear whether Lennox shoots the Decepticon in the nuts and bolts or the underside of his chest. (It also isn't clear whether it's Lennox or the F-22s that kill him.)
  • Jack Black's character in Tropic Thunder gets 2 within the space of 10 seconds from the child leader of the drug cartel. He then just manages to avoid a stomp that breaks the wooden stair his crotch was at.

Cue immediate widening of the guy's eyes and mouth and clenching of the legs within the male members of the audience.
    • Earlier on in the film, Helen knees a masked Gib in the groin as she tries to escape from him and the other members of The Omega Sector counter-terrorism task force during the surprise raid at Simon's trailer home.

  • The Villain. The evil Cactus Jack invites Nervous Elk to join him in ravishing Charming. Nervous Elk declines, saying that white women always hold back one bullet for themselves so they can't be raped. Except for that one woman who used her bullet to shoot Nervous Elk's balls off.
  • The German low-budget horror series Violent Shit has examples of this in all three installments, for both genders. The squickiest example is the killer piercing a victim's balls with a hook in graphic detail.

  • In Wagons East, John Candy's character James Harlow is whacked in the groin, as well as about four other characters during the film.
  • Some comedy films from the Indonesian comedian group Warkop like to play this trope for laughs. Either the main character, support character, or just a random bystander in the film, as long as they're all grown men, will always have the misfortune to suffer a groin attack. And the attacker themself almost always being a female character.
  • In Wasabi, Jean Reno's character kicks a transvestite hard enough to lift her in the air and be sent flying to sit on a bank counter a few feet behind her.
  • The aliens in The Watch (2012) can only be killed by severe trauma to the penis.

    Franklin: Just like all men. Am I right?
  • In the film version of Watership Down during their fight at one point Bigwig digs his hind claws into General Woundwort's crotch.
  • In Wayne's World 2, Wayne's kung fu showdown with James Hong contains a ball shot which results in two large ball bearings dropping out of Hong's pant leg. Actually, they appear to be the kind of Chinese spheres you rolls in your hands in pairs for relaxation (kinda like ben-wa balls, but not the sex kind...or hey, maybe they are).
  • The titular corpse in Weekend at Bernie's manages to deliver one of these to his murderer, hours after he's been killed.
  • In We're the Millers, Kenny gets bitten on the testicle by a tarantula that crawled into his shorts. His testicle gets incredibly swollen, and he has to be taken to the hospital.

    Roger: Nose!
    Smart Ass: "Nose?" That don't rhyme with "walls"!
    Eddie: No, but this does! (PUNTS the weasel in the groin, sending him flying across the warehouse and into the vat of Dip)

    • In Deadpool, Deadpool often goes for a groin attack to incapacitate a target before killing — with a gleeful cry of, "Cock-shot!"

    • In Deadpool 2, Colossus wraps a metal bar around his hand and punches Juggernaut in the groin, which actually hurts him.

    Harry: How did he die?
    Sterne: Technically? Asphyxiation by his own genitalia.
    Sterne: (angrily) Somebody cut his dick off, stuffed it in his mouth and choked him to death.
    • Epiphany also dies from such an attack, a rare female version that proves equally horrifying. Essentially, she was raped to death with a gun shoved into her vagina and eventually shot through that place. By her own possessed father, no less.
  • In Antichrist from Lars Von Trier, who's been called a misogynist various times, the leading woman whacks her husband's balls with a hammer, then brings him to an erection and to orgasm, and he ejaculates blood.

  • Batman Returns. Catwoman kicks Batman down there with a heel-heeled boot; meowtch! Considering that the Groin Attack is one of Catwoman's favorite attacks, she may realize that this attack isn't very effective against Batman, as he isn't showing much flinch after received the attack. But, of course, Batman should be wearing a protective cup at the time, not to mention he's also been trained as a ninja and all. So it's not surprising if he has Balls of Steel.
  • Batman: Mask of the Phantasm: The Joker has Andrea Beaumont (unmasked as the Phantasm) pinned down on her back, so she gives the Joker a knee to the jewels.
  • The second Battal Gazi film had the titular warrior tracking down the men who gang-raped his sister until she is Driven to Suicide, and avenge her by killing the perpetrators through attacking their crotches.

    • Both the book and film Casino Royale (2006) featured a nasty torture sequence for 007, wherein he's tied to a chair frame and repeatedly struck hard in the danglers with a knotted rope (or giant carpet beater in the book, which seems even more painful). It's not exactly supposed to be funny, but James still manages to crack a few one liners during his predicament. He is James Bond, after all. He even has sex soon afterwards.
    Bond: 'Unnnnnnh! No! No, no! To the right! To the right! TO THE RIGHT!!'
    Bond: "Now the whole world's gonna know that you died scratching my balls!"

Later on, Reiko fights against another thug from within the warehouse and during the impromptu battle, she kicks him in the groin, stunning him long enough for Reiko to knock him out.
  • John Wick Chapter 3 has at least one goon per fight scene take one on the meat & veggies. It could be seen as a Running Gag, but the sheer brutality of the groin savaging on display (including by throwing knife and by dog-mauling) overtakes any potential for humor.
  • Judgment at Nuremberg: A man testifies how he was forcibly sterilized on the grounds of alleged mental disability under the Nazi eugenics laws (partly in retaliation for him and his relatives fighting the Nazis, as they were Communists).

Which kills him.
  • Legend of the Wolf: Another Donnie Yen example, the final battle between the titular Wolf and the main villain; originally the Wolf is on the losing side, until his opponent misses a kick, allowing the Wolf to deliver an uppercut into the villain's nuts.

  • Threatened but not carried out in Orphan, by Esther Coleman (aka Leena Klammer) to her foster brother, Daniel, with a knife. It's enough to scare the hell out of him and unintentionally caused him to pee his pants.
