I think we should change the picture to Edna Mode slapping Mrs. Incredible with a rolled up newspaper
Are we sure this isn't an Abuse Trope? This happens far more often that it should-especially in close m/f relationships with Armor Piercing Slaps-that are sometimes unnescessary to get the person back to normal where a simple conversation about their priorities can suffice.
Just throwing out a suggestion for new name, here:
Sense Inducing Strike
It's similar to a few other titles, but also sums up the idea nicely. I was going to suggest Sense Inducing Slap, but that's a bit too specific.
Sobering Slap, perhaps?
Go the Gundam route.
And the picture sucks. Why go low-resolution crap when there are sharper, better images available?
Get a hold of yourself MAN? This is a rather confusing trope. It name implies it is Always Male, thus landing it in the Gender Dynamics Index. Suggesting it being split up between the trope for "Percussive Maintenance for Heroic BSO Ds" and the stock phrase.
Does anyone know if there's a non-physical version of this trope? Because we seem to be getting an awful lot of entries that don't involve actual Percussive Maintenance For People.
Would you mind clarifying? Everything I see on this page either fits the trope or is Not an Example.
Like an instance of someone just saying the equivalent of "Get a hold of yourself" without grabbing/shaking the person who's losing it.
Either what kraas said or its equivalent; like an Armor-Piercing Question without a question, or a reconstructive Hannibal Lecture. For example, Doctor Kelso's little speech here.
And which Scientific Railgun would that be?
This one, silly.
It isn't that funny though. Easily amused, much?
