Stock Phrase for threatening to hit someone so hard, the damage will spread to his friend, his mom, his hair or even an abstract concept.
Often used in tandem with If You Ever Hurt Her, Badass Boast, To the Pain or Cut His Heart Out with a Spoon. Sometimes used as a Pre-Asskicking One-Liner. Can be literal if Synchronization or a Psychic Link is involved (doubly so for Twin Telepathy).
If the harm is financial rather than physical — say, Alice is threatening to sue Bob — it may be a more realistic threat like "I'll sue you so hard your grandkids will be in debt."
Not to be confused with Hit So Hard, the Calendar Felt It. Also the X in question is not necessarily referring to an ex-lover.
