Un balón puede darte de lleno en la cara, te la golpea de lleno queire decir entera, sin dejar un espacio sin golpear.
Acertar de lleno, en una quiniela , es ganar el premio, tb en lotería, concursos etc
Haber un lleno en un cine- No había asientos.
Son los ejemplos que se me ocurren con de lleno. Es más bien un enfatizador.
