* In ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors'', ''VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors'', and ''WarriorsOrochi'', you are always cognizant of what's going on over the entire battlefield even though you're controlling a single warrior (or single team of warriors traveling together, in the case of ''Orochi'')--you can instantly hear allies calling for help, ambushes go off, reinforcements show up, etc., and get a corresponding NoticeThis ping on the mini-map.

* ''Film/{{Crank}}'' has a scene where Chev Chelios is [[spoiler: falling from a helicopter several miles above the city]] and calls his girlfriend to send her a heartfelt message. Both his dialogue and the recording are free of any wind noises.
** Which only makes it funnier when the sequel averts this trope by showing that Chev actually left [[RealityEnsues a minute long recording of the wind]] on her answering machine.

* Both played straight and averted in ''Anime/PorcoRosso''. Sometimes, people communicate plane-to-plane via morse code, as they did in real life. Other times, they simply shout, which in real life would have been impossible.

* The ''Series/{{Mythbusters}}'' examined the plausibility of the ''Film/PointBreak'' example above by having another skydiver tell Grant a [[ToiletHumor "pull my finger" joke]] in freefall. The joke was completely inaudible.

* In the [[{{TabletopGame/Warhammer40000}} Warhammer 40,000]] comic book ''ComicBook/BloodAndThunder'', the newly-proclaimed Ork Warboss Skyva gives a speech from the top of a Gargant (a war machine standing over a hundred meters tall) to the thousands of orks at its base. Justified in two ways: not only are Orks [[LargeHam really really good at shouting]], they can make physics bend to their will slightly based on [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve what they think should be happening]].

* ''ComicBook/LeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'' actually shows the confrontation between [[Literature/SherlockHolmes Sherlock Holmes]] and Moriarty at Reichenbach Falls, something the original story by Arthur Conan Doyle that it's taken from, [[http://www.eastoftheweb.com/short-stories/UBooks/FinaProb.shtml "The Final Problem"]], never bothered with (Watson just finds a letter and signs of a struggle and assumes what happened). Doyle thus sidestepped any problems of two men engaging in dialogue right next to a plunging, roaring waterfall, while Moore forges right through with [[SesquipedalianLoquaciousness sesquipedalian]] flair, as seen [[http://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/2614967.html here]].
