* In ''[[Film/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2]]'', Voldemort unleashes an immensely powerful spell to shatter the impenetrable magical shield protecting Hogwarts. Potent enough to crack the wand that cast it (the Elder Wand, no less) and visibly tire Voldemort, it is the single most powerful spell seen in the entire series.

* An interesting variation in ''Film/{{TC 2000}}'', where Matthias Hues's character flees Bolo Yeung's character and hides behind a big metal door, pressing his back against it. The latter remembers Newton's cradle (the suspended metal balls that transmit kinetic force between them), and uses a similar trick to deliver a fatal blow to the bad guy on the other side by punching the metal door. The door doesn't even appear to have a dent in it, but the bad guy collapses with BloodFromTheMouth.
