* In the animated version of ThePerishers, Wellington had two really epic examples, once of the "dog cart" he had built for Boot to pull only for boot to "misunderstand" repeatedly, and once of an axle and single wheel that Marlon brought round wit "I had an accident with my buggy, can you fix it?" Both times Wellington's response was "AAAAAAGH! I've had enough of you and this thing...thing... ''thing''...THING!" (stomp stomp stomp).

Sometimes characters get angry enough to start abusing things, and if they're [[{{Pun}} hopping mad,]] start jumping on it. This is a subtrope to PercussiveTherapy, where the character is trying to vent their frustrations by destroying something, only punching and kicking aren't enough. The item and the frustrations are sometimes linked, sometimes not. Assuming the character is talking while they're stomping, see PunctuatedForEmphasis

* A more [[BestServedCold calculated]] and cathartic version appears in ''Film/OfficeSpace''. After the main characters quit Initech, they steal the constantly malfunctioning office printer, take it out to a field and beat it to death while the GetoBoys ''[[CrowningMusicOfAwesome Still]]'' plays in the background.
* In ''Film/OutOfTime'', Denzel Washington's character does this to his cell phone in order not to speak with his JerkAss boss. He even spouts a variation of the "Can you hear me now?" line while doing it.

* In an episode of ''AreYouBeingServed'', when Mr. Grainger thought he was about to be fired, he wrote everything he wanted to say about the staff in his letter of resignation. On learning it ''wasn't'' the case, he read out the paper anyway, to their general amusement... but decided he was far too harsh towards Mr. Humphries. Mr. Humphries grabbed the letter, read it silently, and then tore it to shreds and jumped on the shreds, crying profusely.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'' has a character take their hat off and stomp it. What makes this notable is the game is fully sprite based, and every frame of the animation is used exclusively for this event, as opposed to GoingThroughTheMotions.
* In the first ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'', Diddy would do this to his hat if he failed a bonus game or if the platform in Tanked Up Trouble ran out of gas: amusingly enough, if you move him close enough to the edge of a platform before it happens, he throws it down a pit and jumps after it. He also did this at least once in the TV series.
* In the versus mode of ''VideoGame/StarFox Assault'': If Wolf O'Donnell loses, he will angrily throw his [[RayGun blaster]] onto the ground, grind it with his foot, and look the other way.
* At the end of ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog'' for the Sega Genesis, Robotnik is shown stomping on the words "The End".[[note]]But only if you get all the Chaos Emeralds. Otherwise, he tosses around the ones you missed, and it says "Try again" instead.[[/note]]
* Inverted in ''VideoGame/DeadSpace2'', wherein stomping on the bodies of the necromorphs is often one of the best ways to dismember them, but you can keep on stomping at the chunks, and stomping, and Isaac will start cursing a blue streak, implying that the continued violence is more catharsis than practicality.
