Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Next to "Off with His Head!", snapping a person's neck is one of the surest ways to kill someone in media.
Typical procedure: Alice stalks Bob. Catching him unaware, Alice grabs Bob's chin with one hand and his opposite temple with the other. Bob just has time enough for his eyes to go wide with the realization of how screwed he is when Alice wrenches his head to the side with a hideous cracking of bone. Bob is always killed instantly and usually with his eyes open. Sometimes Alice appears to put in an effort (or has superpowers or something) but often is remarkably blase about it.
Note that in Real Life, it takes a considerable amount of strength and/or training to snap a person's necknote Go ahead and (carefully) check your own neck - it takes considerable effort to turn your own head past its normal stopping point. The human spine is not to be trifled with! People who actually suffer broken necks tend to have had very hard trauma from falling or a car accident., especially if the character getting it snapped is considerably big and strong. It's possible if you can pin your opponent and know where to grab and twist to get leverage. In real life, spinal/neck manipulation is allowed in certain martial arts competitions such as the UFC and other MMA events. However, it looks very different than in the movies, and there is almost always time to "tap out" before injury, much less permanent or lethal injury. To perform the "neck snap" like in the page's image you would have to be super humanly strong.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Also note that in Real Life nothing dies instantly from a fractured neck unless it sends vertebrae fragments into, or contorts, the brain-stem in such a way as to shut down all lower brain functions. A broken neck is no guarantee of a "silent kill" either as, if the aforementioned brain-stem damage is not inflicted, all you are left with is a quadriplegic victim, severely injured but not dead, and still able to speak and scream.
The frequency of this in film and TV is possibly because it offers a fairly brutal way of killing someone without having to use or show any blood. It is also often used as storytelling shorthand for "this character is a Badass". Not to be confused with Neck Cracking.
As a Death Trope, expect spoilers.

Unbreakable. David Dunn uses this technique during his climactic confrontation with the orange-clad janitor/serial killer/kidnapper. It's justified since David is explicitly superhuman and is implied to have well above average physical strength. Even so, he only pulls it off after putting the janitor in a chokehold for over thirty seconds straight and forcing the guy to tire himself out. In addition, it takes him multiple attempts to finally snap the neck cleanly, thus ending the fight. The scene in question can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-waJsBs0eBQ

Non-fatal example: Kimura does this to X-23 in Target X, casually snapping her neck before dumping her body down the basement stairs. Laura survives because of her Healing Factor and recovers in time to pull an Arrow Catch when Kimura tries to shoot Laura's cousin (who was hiding in the basement with her mother) with a crossbow.

In the original game, Riordan does this to a mook to escape from a dungeon cell when you first meet him.
In Dragon Age II, Fenris does this first to a mook whom he was questioning after pinning him to the ground. Later he crushes Denarius' neck effortlessly with one hand after lifting him off the ground by it. It's justified; his tattoos grant him magical combat boosts.

This happens to Quilge Opie when he gets Hammered into the Ground by Ayon. However, he then gets up and pops his neck back into place.
Later, it also happens to Giselle Gewelle when Ichigo knocks her and her friends through a building. However, since Giselle has a Healing Factor, she also nonchalantly pops her neck back into place.

In Death Battle "Yang vs. Tifa", this is how the loser gets finished off, in a fairly creative variant of this move. Yang grabs Tifa from behind on opposing sides of her head, and then she fires both of her shotgun gauntlets, so the recoil pulls her arms away and... Well, you get the idea. Barbara Dunkelman (Yang's voice actress, who was watching the fight on livestream) looked pretty visibly mortified afterwards, and for fair enough reason.
Again, a creative variation of this move is used in "Batman vs. Captain America". Read: Batman's Grappling-Hook Pistol meets Cap's neck meets street-lamp.

Pachenko in Death Race. In the movie, it's legal to kill other drivers during races, but for Jason Statham's character it's personal. So instead of simply running him over when he gets the chance, Jason gets out of his car in the middle of a race, just to snap Pachenko's neck.

The playable Red Hood in Batman: Arkham Knight both plays this straight and subverts it. One of his stealth takedowns from behind just quickly snaps his opponent's neck. However, corner takedown victims lose their balance, giving Red Hood enough leverage for a more powerful snap.

Angel uses this trope SOOO much. There are so many times that this is how Angel and co. dispose of pretty much every one of their enemies. In order of most common cause of death: Neck snapping is number one, with shot to death (by bullet or arrows) in a close second, followed by decapitation. No, but really. It's so common, it could be used as a drinking game. Angel especially has used this on demonic entities more than anyone else. He also used it to kill Marcus Hamilton (albeit just by punching him in the face really hard) and Drogyn in the series finale. Angelus mentioned when he killed Jenny Calendar with one that he never gets tired of doing it. Maybe Angel just got into the habit.
It was also used as a diversion once-Angel got into the Scourge by snapping Doyle's neck. But, it turns out Bracken demons can survive a neck snap, and Doyle stands up after Angel leaves and pulls his neck back into place.

Honor Harrington:
Happens by accident in The Shadow of Saganami, when an arms dealer supplying anti-Manticoran terrorists makes a desperate, ultimately unsuccessful attempt to prevent one of his fellow crew members from firing on a RMN shuttle coming to board the dealer's ship, after sensor readings by the Hexapuma showed that the dealer was running under false transponder codes.
Done deliberately in Flag in Exile by an assassin sent to kill Honor on a guard.
Done deliberately to a Super Soldier in "From the Highlands". It works because 1) Anton Zilwicki is even stronger than the Scrag and 2) Anton knows exactly how and where to apply the needed force.

In Heroes:
Knox pulls this on Scott during the volume 3 finale. Justified, of course.
Arthur Petrelli pulls this off with a wave of his hands on Maury Parkman.
Earlier in the same volume, Peter does this to Sylar. With one hand. (He gets better though.)

Happens to Clayton at the end of Tarzan, which he caused himself by carelessly chopping through vines he got himself tangled in. Justified in this case, as it pans out like a long-drop hanging with the vines in place of a noose.

Happens a number of times in various The Outer Limits episodes. One episode involves a suspect snapping her own neck to avoid being questioned. Slightly justified because she was a mutant with enhanced strength. It's also possible that the same mutation also weakened her neck. Another episode starts with a frail-looking woman having sex with a man and then snapping his neck afterwards. Actually, his neck comes off revealing him to be an android. She's an android too. This was a test of a Mata Hari-type Killer Robot, so her strength is justified.

Cato does this to one of the other tributes in The Hunger Games after Katniss succeeds in blowing up all the food the career tributes had hoarded. It's not terribly convincing, but they are minors acting and adding a crunching sound effect would have pushed the films rating up from PG-13.

Most bad guys in Supernatural prefer this method of killing someone, with demons usually doing it with Telekinesis. Since it's mostly supernatural beings, the ease with which the neck breaks is justified. Most notably, this is how Lucifer eventually kills Dean in an alternate future.

Cowboy Bebop episode "Boogie Woogie Feng Shui". Jet snaps the neck of a syndicate goon after interrogating him. The offhand, blase manner discussed in the trope description is justified here — Jet uses his cybernetic arm. In a later Jet-centered episode we learn that his cybernetic arm is no more stronger or more resilient than any other human arm (although he has little to no feeling in it). He's just that Badass.

In "The Warrior Princess", an arc of the X-Wing Series comics, there is a resistance movement fighting an Imperial presence, one of the members is captured, strapped into a chair, and tortured. Then the beloved leader of the resistance walks in, tells him that he'd done well and will be sent home and set free, and then gets behind him and breaks his neck. Then he makes out with the head of the local Imperial forces in front of the dead man's staring eyes. ...As it turns out, the leader of the resistance is secretly evil!

One of the primary methods used by the wrestlers in Pro Wrestlers vs. Zombies to kill the zombies, always from a sleeper hold. In particular, Shane Douglas does one after another to his zombified family, giving him a chance to whisper agonized goodbyes before snapping their necks.

In Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Asajj Ventress and her allied Nightsisters decide to test the loyalty of their newly-empowered minion, Savage Opress, by commanding him to kill his brother. Savage does so with a Neck Snap. (Not with a Force Choke Neck Lift, mind you, as is traditional in this universe—Opress has only an instinctual knowledge of the Force in this episode, and no formal training. He does it with his bare hands.)

Resident Evil
In one of the first cutscenes in Resident Evil 4, Leon demonstrates his new badass upgrade by breaking a villager's neck, using only his foot and the mook's own weight (at least if you hit the buttons on time). But don't take our word for it.
In the mercenaries minigame, HUNK's special move is the neck breaker...But it's quite noisy this time. Although it kills the target instantly, the mook will still shout out or sigh; on top of that, they'll bleed out of their mouths. Not sure whether that makes it more or less realistic.
When Chris or Jill performs a neck break in Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, they simply fall down silently. In Chris's case, they don't even try to resist and will simply stand straight up with their arms to their sides when grabbed, but that's because they've been stunned by a solid hit beforehand.
In Resident Evil 5, Wesker can perform a 180-degree neck snap on Chris mid-acrobatic leap if the player misses Press X to Not Die.
Several enemies will do this to Leon if he misses a cutscene button prompt, specifically Mendez and U3. Mendez does it with one hand, although right before that he bends heavy steel rods together and throws you twenty feet, so it's not too surprising.

Warframe does this with a variety of melee weapons: staff users throw the bar across a humanoid opponent's neck and violently wrench it to one side, whip users coil the length of the whip around a victim's neck and pull down, and gauntlet users just straight up grab the head and twist. The end result is always a rather loud crack and bonus experience for stealth kills.

The Godfather: The Game
One of the execution styles involves a neck snap from the front on a weakened opponent. Another involves a snap after choking the guy to death.
The sequel retains the snap-after-choking, as well as an upgrade that replaces the garotte stealth kill, and is much faster. Oddly enough, though, it is executed by grabbing the victim with your garrote wire. For some reason, your character strangles them with the wire for a second or so, complete with distressed gurgling from the victim, then snaps their necks to kill them quicker.

Pathfinder. Through feats or class features, this is a combat option in the game.
There is a Brawler archetype, the Strangler, which has a high-level ability called Neckbreaker; opponents pinned in a grapple must make a save or die instantly.
A somewhat more realistic variation exists through the Neckbreaker feat, which is available to anyone willing to sink the feats into it. A successful attack deals considerable damage directly to the target's strength or dexterity score as their spine is violently twisted. Once paralyzed through nerve damage and their scores drop to zero, any further damage from this attack is done directly to their constitution score - once that hits zero, they're dead.

Brock Sampson tries to walk a reluctant Hank Venture through this in "Ghosts of the Sargasso". Fortunately, Hank isn't strong enough to actually break any necks, but he does knock out a couple of the goons and ties them up, with bows.
In "Ice Station Impossible!" Hank, facing possible doom as a human bomb, asks Brock to kill him if the need comes.

Near the end of The Last Argument of Kings, Frost does this to a maimed and tearful Severard. Both turn out to have been informing on Glokta, though he at first didn't realize that Frost was a traitor, too, and was seemingly going to let Severard live. Then the epiphany hits, and Frost silences Severard before going for Glokta.

In an especially jarring example, Captain Crais does this to a subordinate ONE-HANDED. C'mon, the guy has some training but he's not exactly a ninja.
The subordinate's head also barely moves a few degrees. There's no way Sebacean necks are so fragile. They're supposed to be genetically-engineered Super Soldiers.
Scorpius also managed a one-handed Neck Snap in the fourth season, but then again, Scorpius is much stronger than the average Sebacean.
Aeryn snaps several necks too throughout the series. Clearly, it is the Peacekeepers' favored close-up method of killing.

Teal'c does this to a Jaffa leader (who has been torturing him, as well as his son and mentor — thus making it very satisfying) in the episode "Orpheus", though it takes some squeezing.
Adria may be a subversion, she uses her Psychic Powers to kill a Jaffa this way in SG-1 episode 10.07 "Counterstrike".
Similarly, Niirti is killed this way by one of her telekinetic "experiments".

Happens very often on the The Vampire Diaries. It's justified in that vampires have Super Strength which makes it the fastest and easiest way to kill a human. Vicky, Jeremy, Tyler and too many supporting characters to count die/are turned this way. Vampires also often do this to each other. It doesn't kill them, but works as a reliable Tap on the Head that knocks them out for a while.

In the Halo games from Halo: Reach onward, there are assassination animations that utilize this trope against three enemies: the Grunts (in which the Spartan simply cups its head and twists), the Elites (the Spartan leaps on its back, grabs its snout and pulls), and other Spartans (the Spartan knocks his target on his/ her stomach, leans down, and casually twists the head).

Thane Krios of Mass Effect 2 demonstrates this on one of his target's guards when you first encounter him. In fact, according to the Shadow Broker's dossier on him, it's his preferred assassination technique on any species including the krogan, who have necks like tree trunks. He needs a "running leaping spinning neck-snap" to get up enough momentum for that last one. However, half the time he'll just plant a bomb instead.

Shepard can perform one on a mouthy mercenary captain if a Renegade interrupt is taken during Miranda's loyalty mission. Shepard is fortunately both a trained combatant and a cyborg.

In the Fight Club activity inside Saints Row 2, you must finish off your opponents in this way. It is portrayed as being rather difficult though, as it will later involve a lot of Button Mashing to kill, and it is done in a full rear chokehold like in Metal Gear Solid. This is also how human shields are disposed of when unarmed or equipped with a rocket launcher.
In the sequel Saints Row: The Third Killbane, leader of rival gang The Luchadores, does a one-handed version to Kiki DeWynter after she provokes him by calling him by his real name.
In Third, this is an optional way of disposing of human shields.
Played straight in the optional "Kill Killbane" ending in Third, which is basically an interactive cutscene (his neck's a-breakin' regardless of what happens). Regardless of the type of protagonist design (male, female, skinny, Amazon) it takes some effort to break the neck, and it's rendered somewhat realistic by being done as a legitimate wrestling hold, but one taken to a lethal end.

Mortal Kombat
This is how Shao Kahn kills Johnny Cage in Mortal Kombat Annihilation and Kung Lao in Mortal Kombat 9.
Speaking of Mortal Kombat, snapping your opponent's neck is just one of the ways to finish off a "Kreate-A-Fatality" in Mortal Kombat Armageddon.
Heck, in two of the stances you can do this to an opponent without it being a finisher. So you could technically snap a neck 3 times in succession as the last 3 hits of your Fatality.
Havik can snap his own neck. To regenerate health. He is a freakish undead contortionist thing, so it makes sense. Kinda...
In the opening sequence of the Deadly Alliance, this is how Shang Tsung kills Liu Kang.
This is actually a rather popular way of finishing an opponent in the series; Hotaru and Tanya both twist an opponent's neck past the point where their head should even be attached (Hotaru with his bare hands, Tanya with her Murderous Thighs) while Quan Chi has a rather lame neck-stretching move in Deadly Alliance, and Scorpion himself has this as his Hara-Kiri and as the final blow for one of his fatalities in Deception. It's also starting to become customary to break a person's neck before ripping it off Sub-Zero style (or breaking the appropriate bones before dismembering them, if not specifically going for the head)
Mortal Kombat 4 also has several non-lethal neck snappers. Tanya, Sonya, and Reptile all have a "bone breaker" move that makes them twist the opponent's neck 180 degrees before it snaps back into place.
Quan Chi has this as part of his X-Ray move in Mortal Kombat 9, but it's especially notable in that he's controlling the opponent, meaning he's making them snap their own neck.
The culmination of Jax's second fatality in Mortal Kombat X ends with a Neck Snap...but not after he already ripped out his opponent's ribs and jammed them into their temple.
Also from X, one of the Faction Kills you can get is making the opponent get possessed by a black cloud and snap their own neck, similar to Quan Chi did in the past game. Appropriately, you can only get this one if you're a member of the Brotherhood of Shadows.

Subverted in Jason X. Jason-fucking-Voorhees snaps someone's neck, not quickly, but slowly, and having to use all of both arms. Kane Hodder (Jason's actor) clarifies that script called for him to go for the quick snap, but decided that such a kill was So Last Season and instead convinced the director and writer to go with the slow kill instead.

"Aen'rhien Vailiuri" has a supremely pissed-off Romulan named Morgan t'Thavrau do a one-handed Neck Lift on a Kazon who just insulted her ability to command her ship. When the Kazon proves Defiant to the End, she breaks his neck and tells her security officer to send in the second-in-command.

A difficult but high-scoring move in Tori Bash involves holding your opponent's head somewhere in the vicinity of your elbow and giving a good, hard twist. On 'softer' game modes, the neck joint will break and be rendered useless. On any game mode which involves dismemberment (including the default setting), it's a good way to messily decapitate someone.

In Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, the Beadle, Judge Turpin's dragon, does this to the poor little bird that was Anthony's gift to Johanna in a quite cruel Kick the Dog moment before threatening Anthony with the same if he ever steps foot on their street again. In the non-musical version of the play by Christopher Bond that the musical was based on, Sweeney kills the Beadle by dropping him right down the chute with the chair in such a way as to break his neck upon landing, a nod to the way the original Sweeney murdered his customers in The String of Pearls.

Much like in the comic it's based on, the second part of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns has Batman decide that he's done playing around and snap The Joker's neck, rendering him paralyzed without killing him. The Joker, satisfied that he finally made Batman lose control, finishes the job himself by snapping his own neck completely, killing himself and making sure that Batman would be hunted down by the police for supposedly killing him.

In Styx: Master of Shadows, Neck snapping is Styx's preferred method of muffled killing when striking from behind. Though this is generally a lot quieter then Styx simply jamming a knife into someone's chest and let them scream (Styx covers his victim's mouth when readying a Neck Snap), the Sickening "Crunch!" of his victim's neck snapping will still draw the attention of nearby enemies.

Oni:
Konoko does this in one of her more elaborate attacks. It involves running up to your opponent frontally, simultaneously grabbing them by the neck, jumping in the air and using your momentum to do a 360° spin kick, with the guy's neck as a pivot axis. Since his body only goes about 180°, you get rewarded with a satisfying crack. Did I mention you can use it to knock down multiple opponents if they are clustered together?
Muro (who can be controlled in certain levels with a cheat code) plays this one straight if you sneak up behind an opponent and use the default grapple.

In the original Metal Gear Solid, the quietest way to kill guards after you have snuck up on them is to snap their necks (although for some strange reason, the guards still seem to bleed after the move is successfully performed as if shot or hit with a killer punch/kick even though that shouldn't happen).
This is given a nod in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, where it's one of Snake's throws.

The Matrix: Path of Neo has this in some versions, most notably if the enemy is near death and Neo does his run up the chest, then kick in the head move which kills the guy. Even with modding, a blow to the neck can still have this effect.

In the David Palmer novel Emergence, Candy Smith-Foster (an eleven-year-old girl) kills an enemy agent by pretending to cry, then snapping his neck when he hugs her. (She is a black belt with the ability to access greater-than-normal strength, and they're in free-fall in an orbiting spacecraft at the time.)

In the Paradox Trilogy, symbionts are strong enough to kill people this way, and it seems to be one of their preferred tactics. In particular, two important characters are killed by symbionts in this manner in Honor's Knight.

Seen A LOT in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. Whenever you sneak up on an enemy with a melee attack, expect to see some necks getting broken, and a very satisfying snap. Also, in the online co-op modes, there are exclusive enemies that sneak up behind you, grab your neck, and attempt to snap it. If your buddies don't take him out in time, well, hope you've gotten used to hearing that snapping sound so much.
Also given a slight nod to realism, as when Nate breaks an opponent's neck, he's almost always putting his full body weight into the effort, either getting them on the ground first to abuse his leverage, or otherwise maneuvering them into a position in which he can exert a lot of pressure. They still die silently, though.

In one early cutscene in Jade Empire, Master Li snaps a Lotus Assassin's neck by karate chopping it. It should be noted that his strength was sufficient to shatter a ship with a punch, so breaking someone's neck is really to be expected.

In the Noughts & Crosses series, Jude, as general of the Liberation Militia, does this to a subordinate who has betrayed them. He does this one-handed, by jerking her upwards while he was standing behind her chair and she was turning to look up at him. He is a fit, strong man, the attack came totally by surprise, and one might suspect that her neck might be less muscled and more fragile than the normal victims of this trope, so it's difficult to tell how realistic this example is.

Game of Thrones:
Arya Stark snapped the neck of a pigeon she caught, intending to eat it.
Other characters like The Hound sometimes snap people's necks in battle. Furthermore, when Biter attacks him, he retaliates by snapping Biter's neck almost instantly.
This happens to Locke, courtesy of a warged Hodor, bringing his quest to bring back Bran and Rickon to a sudden and unpleasant end. Somehow, we don't feel bad about it.
On Arya's orders, Jaqen snaps the Tickler's neck.

In Dogma, the angel Bartleby is accosted by a security guard, and says, in what is arguably the best use of a Shout-Out in movie history: "Don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry." The security guard doesn't heed the warning, and a few seconds later is on the receiving end of a one-handed version of this trope.

Doctor Who
The Fourth Doctor does this to a minor villain non-fatally in "The Seeds of Doom".
The Master does it to Chang Lee in the TV Movie, killing him (he got better, though). He also did it to the wife of Bruce (the guy whose body he stole).
Jack recommends doing this to the Master in "The Sound of Drums".
The Weeping Angels turn out to be very fond of this in "The Time of Angels"/"Flesh and Stone". It quickly replaced the "trapping victims in the past" method from "Blink", likely to avoid villain decay (since that's easy to undo with a TARDIS). The Doctor tried to explain this as an exception since they needed the body or soul to talk, but they go on doing it after creating "Angel Bob". Of course, sending people to the past is a way to feed, and they already get enough power from draining the ship's engines.

Appears to be the preferred unarmed killing technique of Cylons. Of course, they are stronger than humans. Examples include Caprica killing Boomer when the latter threatened Hera, Gina killing the guard outside her cell, and Boomer killing a Simon in the Grand Finale.

In the Season 1 Andromeda episode "A Rose in the Ashes", the prison warden does a one-handed neck-snap to a revolting inmate. Justified, in that the warden is an android.
Also, the inmate is able to still talk for a minute before expiring.

Doki Doki Literature Club!: You can get a special scene if you compose poems that appeal to Natsuki for the first two days of Act Two. When she shows you her poem, it's all in garbled code (which someone actually found out was in base64 and managed to translate) Translation  Open Your Third Eye. I can feel the tenderness of their skin through the knife as if it were an extension of my sense of touch. My body nearly convulses. There's something incredibly faint, deep down, that screams to resist this uncontrollable pleasure, but I can already tell that I'm pushed to the edge. I can't... I can't stop myself. She then proceeds to ask you why you flaked on her, and that it was the only thing she had left to look forward to. The screen turns a dim red as she tells you Yuri is a "sick freak" and you shouldn't associate with her. As she continues to ramble, her eyes and mouth become blacked out, blood begins pouring down her face, and the music grows distorted. Eventually, she dons a huge Slasher Smile, screaming "PLAY WITH ME!!!" as her neck snaps like The Crooked Man. Her sprite then lunges toward the screen and you get the "END" card backwards. The game then goes back to normal as if nothing happened.

Prince of Persia: Warrior Within lets you do this in combat if you only have one weapon, usually vaulting over the enemy, stunning it in the process and strangling it. If it's already critically wounded, you then disarm it and execute it Anakin-style with both your and its own weapon — otherwise, you just take a long, long time twisting its neck which potentially makes you vulnerable to its friends.

Sophitia from Soul Calibur does it with her thighs. To be more specific, she jumps on the opponent's face crotch-first, and gives a sharp hip-twist, with the trademark crunchy noise, though it's a rather weak attack.

In Shinobido, this is one of the more popular ways to kill someone with a stealth kill attack. Usually performed in midair (Goh will use his arms, Kinu her legs) or while hanging from a cliff (drag the victim down and break his/her neck). The other ways are usually bloodier (slicing throats and impaling with extreme prejudice).

Beautifully subverted in True Blood, in which Sarah Newlin — an ordinary human with no combat training in a world full of vampires — attempts the classic twist-from-behind on an unsuspecting woman, who is very confused as to what is going on. Then Sarah beats her to death with a shoe. Also disturbingly played with by Bill, when he's having sex with his maker Lorena. Not wanting to see her face, he twists her head 180 degrees. Naturally, being a vampire, she's still alive and even tells him she loves him, while he continues to screw her.

A chokehold and neck snap are elements of one of Heihachi's basic throws in the Tekken series. However, as disgusting as it looks, opponents do not immediately die from it. Other characters in the Tekken series whose moves include neck snaps are Feng, Christie, Lili, and Zafina. King has one as the start of one of his most powerful combination throws, which also includes a suplex, powerbomb, and piledriver.

Star Wars Legends:
In "The Warrior Princess", an arc of the X-Wing Series comics, there is a resistance movement fighting an Imperial presence, one of the members is captured, strapped into a chair, and tortured. Then the beloved leader of the resistance walks in, tells him that he'd done well and will be sent home and set free, and then gets behind him and breaks his neck. Then he makes out with the head of the local Imperial forces in front of the dead man's staring eyes. ...As it turns out, the leader of the resistance is secretly evil!
In the comic Star Wars: Purge, Darth Vader is ambushed by a group of Jedi. One of them is properly prepared for the fight (she was the only one who knew that it was coming, having lured the rest to the meeting area under false pretenses), and disables his lightsaber before going in for the kill. He proves in an instant with this trope that he doesn't need a lightsaber to kill.

The Lord of the Rings
Gimli does this to an orc in the movie version of The Two Towers. Gimli's version is exceptionally badass in that he does it with one hand while facing the orc and while trapped under a huge corpse.
Aragorn does too during the Battle of Pelennor Fields in Return of the King.

Averted in An Oblique Approach where Princess Shakuntala attempts this on a guard and fails comically. After Raghunath Rao mocks her with monkey noises, she steps back and kills the guard with a kick, a palm strike, and three elbow-strikes.

Parodied relentlessly in a Key & Peele sketch Strike Force Eagle 3, spoofing 1980s low-budget action movies: the mulleted hero infiltrates the Big Bad's facility by doing this to every mook guard along the way with increasingly silly and unlikely techniques such as breaking a guard's neck by tugging on the guard's beard. The absurdity peaks when the hero takes out a line of four mooks by throwing a frisbee at one; the struck guard's neck breaks, and as he slumps down he bumps into the guard next to him... breaking that guard's neck in the impact, and continuing down the line.

In Drawn Together, Captain Hero is trying to find a giant retard that has been destroying the city. He finds a dead man in a car and tries to get the information out of him. When he gets no response he decides "Maybe a little neck-snapping will jog your memory!" and proceeds to do just that. And when that doesn't work, he decides "Maybe a little spooning will jog your memory!"

A rather interesting variation occurs in Prometheus in which not only does the Last Engineer use this on David but also decapitates him. However, at the same time it's subverted as being an android, David's head is still able to function, though he needs Shaw to carry him out of the ship.

In Titan A.E., Korso kills Preed this way after the latter's second Face–Heel Turn. The former is a fit, trained soldier and it still takes him considerable effort to do it, so it is quite well-done (perhaps shockingly so for an animated movie with only a PG rating.)

The Saga of Darren Shan
Played straight near the end of Book 11 when Steve kills Shancus this way. Justified in that Steve is superhumanly strong, and to make things easier for him, it's a child's neck he snaps.
Also averted once in Book 3, in which Darren, weakened from a lack of blood, fails to snap the neck of a sheep he planned to feed on, and in a rather upsetting scene, has to repeatedly bash the terrified animal's skull in with a rock as a mercy kill.

The Bourne Series:
The Bourne Ultimatum subverts this, with Nikki jumping on an assassin's back and trying to snap his neck, only to be flung back into the wall behind them.

Torchwood: Miracle Day episode 2 ("Rendition") has a suitably bizarre example where Rex neck snaps a bad-girl CIA agent. Not only that, he does so in a manner that results in her head being rotated 180 degrees! In keeping with the theme of the series, however, she doesn't die and later tries to attack Rex while looking like Meryl Streep from Death Becomes Her. Further neck-snapping goodness occurs during the Miracle Day finale, too.

Two different neck snaps are present as finishing moves in darkSector. One is fairly pedestrian, the other is an unusual and especially brutal variant where Hayden bends an enemy over backwards, places it in an upside down headlock and lifts up sharply, breaking the neck.

In Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines a vampire with Obfuscate powers or simply some skill in stealth can do this to score an instant kill on an unsuspecting victim. And the trope is justified by the fact vampires are wicked strong.

One of the most popular Do-It-Yourself modding projects in Dwarf Fortress is to add these as a move in wrestling. It's as simple as going to the anatomy files, finding the neck, and adding the [JOINT] tag. From then on, you can snap a neck like it was an elbow or knee. Realistically enough, this isn't quite an instant kill but still cripples instantly, while the actual kill is done by the ensuing asphyxiation.
The game has since been updated to allow blunt attacks to pull nearby joints when attacking a body part. A good blow to the head will not only injure the head itself but will also pull the neck, possibly with enough force to sever the upper spine. This is assuming the head itself isn't destroyed by the attack.
