What happens when you combine Kung-Fu with Feng-Shui.
A.k.a. Demolition Fu; redecoration through battle. Sheet of Glass meets Punched Across the Room, the Rule of Cool and Made of Iron: In a hand-to-hand fight in a furnished room (e.g. a Bar Brawl), as many props as possible will be destroyed. This may or may not exclude the walls themselves. Luckily, this is covered under Hero Insurance.
Furniture in movies is actually incredibly rickety; no furniture maker would get away with stuff so easily broken. Except the kind that makes stuff out of balsa wood and sugar glass for the movies, that is. Of course, the intended effect is to make the fighters look so badass that they can break solid furniture.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Higher-powered versions of the trope (for example, those involving Humongous Mecha or Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever) involve the destruction of entire buildings, and from there we go to fighters re-arranging the landscape: compare Scenery Gorn.
When two characters use this to resolve their UST, it's Destructo-Nookie. Allowing this in Video Games results in Die, Chair! Die!. When used as part of a grand finale, it's Trash the Set.

GoldenEye: "You have a licence to kill, not to break the traffic laws!" was how Q put it... Then again, he says something along the lines of blowing up any vehicles he gets into being a "standard procedure" for an MI6 agent... it is uncertain if this is meant to be ironic.

Tends to happen a lot in Ranma ½, even moreso in Fan Fic. The Tendō home tends to bear the brunt of many fights. The very first time Akane expressed her feelings towards Ranma, it was with the dining room table. It just went on from there. It is not an accident that the Fan Nickname for the Ranma cast is "the Nerima Wrecking Crew".

Yet another bathroom fight in Death Grip, where the fight between Torch and Kenny trashes several stalls, breaks off a sink, and results in a large hole in the wall when Torch kicks Kenny into the wall, and then keeps kicking until Kenny falls through. The latter was apparently the result of a happy accident on-set where Jacobus broke through the wall and Bosch decided to just keep kicking since the damage was already done.

CSI: NY: In "Corporate Warriors," two martial arts-trained executives go at it in a pool bar. One stumbles out into the street and dies. Upon being called to the scene, Stella and Danny trace his steps back to the bar and find it utterly trashed. The owner, who had retreated to safety in the bathroom during the brawl, comes out and bemoans the fact that she had just refurbished the place and now it has to be done all over again.

In BloodRayne 2 you can throw opponents onto spikes and out windows...or simply toss them through the occasional breakable wall or other scenery. One office area is a room full of cubicles, all of which can be smashed by flying Mooks.

It is essentially a tradition of the Dark Souls series to have bosses trash stuff during battles. The fights against Ornstein and Smough in Dark Souls and the Old Dragonslayer in Dark Souls II are quite hard on the pillars in the locations they're fought in, for example.

The bathroom fight between Morpheus and Agent Smith in The Matrix. In the series as a whole, resistance fighters will often take shortcuts through sheetrock walls to attack their opponents. Agents will do this to concrete subway terminals. The final brawl of the trilogy takes this to Dragon Ball levels - the fighters knock down skyscrapers by throwing each other into them, and one body-slams the other so hard he punches a six-foot-deep, sixty-foot-wide crater in a city street.

Gale and HI's brawl in the trailer home in Raising Arizona. Just about every blow exchanged in the brawl puts a dent or hole in one of the trailer's paper-soft walls. At one point, HI is hurled straight through a wall. In another, Gale punches through a wall and pulls out a stick that he uses to whack HI's head.

Kill Bill
The fights between the Bride and Vernita Green, and between the Bride and Elle Driver.
The big fight at the House of Blue Leaves also qualifies, mainly in the furniture destroyed by Go-Go Yubari's flail.
It was averted somewhat in the second film, however, when Beatrix needed to practice in order to eventually punch a hole through a wood board from close range.

Fast Forward. A spoof of Kung Fu has a cowboy trying to break a chair during the requisite Bar Brawl, only he can't break it as he's moving the chair in Slow Motion; he then reverts to normal speed to build up enough force to break the chair.

Iron Man 2: Rhodey tries to shut down Tony's drunken partying, and Tony doesn't mind showing his disagreement by first asking his DJ for some asskicking music, then proceeding to toss Rhodey through a window. Rhodey doesn't give up so easily, so the fight proceeds on to the weight room, the boxing ring, and through ceilings. Of course, both are wearing Powered Armor, which makes it double the awesome.

James Bond: Bond does it so often in fact that 00- license might as well be the license to cause severe property damage.
GoldenEye: "You have a licence to kill, not to break the traffic laws!" was how Q put it... Then again, he says something along the lines of blowing up any vehicles he gets into being a "standard procedure" for an MI6 agent... it is uncertain if this is meant to be ironic.
Die Another Day: It's cheerfully lampshaded Bond and Gustav Graves trash a fencing club during a duel which gets out of hand; after the fight, as various ruined furnishings are carried out, a bellhop remarks, "The place needed redecorating anyway."
Casino Royale (2006): The toilet fight, in which Bond and his quarry manage to go through several cubicle walls and smash at least one sink.

Inverted in Red Dwarf, in the episode "Backwards": Lister and company step out into an utterly-destroyed bar, at which point a fight begins - and since time is running backwards in this universe, the fight fixes everything. (There is a bit of Fridge Logic, though - the fight starts because Lister "undrank" someone's pint... which, if time ran forwards, would only happen after the fight was over.)

Played straight and justified in Turn Coat, when Thomas takes a chair and uses it to beat down Madeline Raith. Thomas is strong enough that the chair breaks. Which Harry notes is particularly impressive, considering the chair in question is steel. Madeline is on a similar level of strength, and survives.

Both used and defied in Ip Man. At the start of Ip Man's fight with Jin, the former is merely evading Jin's blows, which happen to fall on the stuff in his house. After a while, his son comes in and conveys a message from his wife to get serious or all the pottery etc. will get smashed... so he does. No more vases are lost. Ip ends up getting into another furniture-wrecking fight in the fourth film.

Happens several times in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Somewhat justified in that the combatants are super-strong, super-tough robotic assassins from the future. Punching each other will do little damage, so they tend to try and pick each other up and throw them through walls, out windows, and even through floors and ceilings.

True Lies had a fairly amusing bathroom fight scene. After Arnold and his foe had taken the fight elsewhere, an old man emerges from a toilet stall with an expression of shock and bewilderment. The opening of Casino Royale may have been inspired by this scene...

One Finger Death Punch has new buildings and objects being lowered into the background constantly. You can't interact with it at all, it's there solely to get destroyed by flying enemies. Meanwhile, Smash Rounds are based entirely around using your opponents to wreck the required number of scenery objects.

Dragon Ball
In later arcs of every incarnation, the (weaker) fighters will often smash eighty-meter-high mountains to rubble. Early on in Dragon Ball Z, Piccolo actually destroys the moon. Because it was a softer target than his moon-powered opponent (Gohan-oozaru).
Master Roshi did the same thing earlier, during the first World Martial Arts tournament in order to stop the rampage of a young, transformed Goku by reverting him to his normal form.
In the manga, Goku is actually questioned about his missing tail when he arrives for the second Tournament Arc and explains that Kami removed it permanently before restoring the moon, closing both plot holes at once.

This happens in one issue of Gold Digger, where the annual Explorers' Society banquet results in the hall being demolished every year. During the free-for-all, Brianna comments that the titanium alloy reinforced tables were a great improvement in cover compared to the wooden ones they had the last time she was there.

A mild example in Fruits Basket. Shigure's front door seems to get destroyed if somebody even thinks about fighting near it. This is heavily lampshaded by Shigure himself.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer:
Among many, many, other examples, her first fling with Spike is somehow engendered from this.
Made into some sort of Lampshade Hanging / Character Development combination, as in later seasons Xander became a talented carpenter, due to all the experience he had repairing and replastering Buffy's house.
Becomes a minor plot point in the season 6 episode "Flooded", where Buffy deals with mounting bills following her mother's (and her own) death. When a demon attacks her in her house, she moves the fight to the basement where there are fewer breakables; after the fight, she and the gang discuss how much her mother must have spent constantly redecorating and Xander notes that the furniture is all cheap and low-quality.
Mentioned in "Dirty Girls":

Charmed tends to have furniture destroyed and windows bashed open when a demon teleports into the house. Slightly averted in that the characters can fix it using magic (maybe they use magic to make the local furniture more comfy to land on if thrown across the room). Their guardian angel is a handyman. Lampshaded by the characters several times as the series went on, particularly the tendency for people (both good and evil) to get hurled into the giant grandfather clock.
