* [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] ''hideously'' on ''WesternAnimation/MonkeyDust''. An ordinary human being (as in, not a wacky cartoon character) has an anvil dropped on his head by an actual cartoon rabbit. The results are bloody, and the reactions of everyone nearby are harrowing.

* Creator/TexAvery's MGM shorts often had these as well. In ''BadLuckBlackie'', for instance, an anvil is but one of a series of hilariously improbable objects that fall on an unfortunate dog from above throughout the cartoon: flowerpots, a cash register, a piano, a safe, various large and heavy modes of transportation, and...[[KitchenSinkIncluded well, you know]].

* ''Literature/IDidNOTGiveThatSpiderSuperhumanIntelligence'': She'll do it with anything heavy, but this is Goodnight's SignatureMove. She uses the [[MindOverMatter Push Rod]] to telekinetically toss something up, then just lets it fall onto people.

* One example that's most certainly '''''not''''' PlayedForLaughs comes from the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jFRpa5nJN_M 2005 commercial]] for [[Ride/UniversalStudios Universal's]] Theatre/HalloweenHorrorNights. "The Storyteller" has a man strapped on top of a bed of nails, with a tied-up anvil hanging above him. After dropping a couple of quips, she cuts the line for the anvil, sending it plummeting towards him as he lets out a horrific scream. The subsequent GoryDiscretionShot leaves the clear implication that the impact of the anvil forced him down into said bed of nails.

* Peacock in ''VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}'' has this as one of her special attacks, in which she summons an object to fall on her opponent. These objects range from a flower pot or a teacup to Andy Anvil or Tommy Ten Tons ({{Assist Character}}s who are an anthropomorphic anvil and 10t weight, respectively) to a [[PianoDrop piano]] or an elephant.
