** One of [[MortalKombatX Shinnok's]] moves is a falling bone hand. It even invokes the trope even further as it's also his {{Necromancer}} brutality.

* ''StayTooned'' has a few that nudge towards Looney Toons as much as possible, given the obvious references. There's even a fun shooting gallery-style minigame which has a crossbow with either plunger darts, bombs, or anvils that you can fire at the passing characters.
* Clown Man's stage in ''MegaMan8'' has boxes that trigger booby traps if you're standing on them when the bell goes off. One possible effect of them is for an object to fall on Mega Man's head.

* CGI/Live-Action combination show ''AceLightning'' has a [[BigGuy villain]] by the ''name'' of Anvil. Who is basically a giant, mutant rhino, ''with'' an actual anvil in place of one hand. He's usually brought into play when they want to bash the characters about a bit and not much else. It's almost a LampshadeHanging, when you think about it...
* In the ''[[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Simpsons]]'' episode "The Day The Violence Died", Itchy & Scratchy creator Chester J. Lampwick tells Bart and Lisa the story of how Roger Myers Sr dropped an anvil on him after he requested royalties for his creation. (Luckily, he says, he was carrying an umbrella at the time.)
