** Wolverine averts a fall off the Statue of Liberty in the ''Film/XMen1'' by hooking one of the points of the statue's crown, then spinning around it to land on top. The point falls off only after he's done.
** ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'' has the title hero do this to make a hard turn on a motorcycle. Interestingly it's one of the rare times his claws don't just go clean through.

* In ''The Last Command'', the third in TimothyZahn's ''TheThrawnTrilogy'', Luke Skywalker pulls a trick like this with his lightsaber. Specifically, he uses the saber only to cut a groove in the wall, grips it with his other hand (which he's wrapped in layers to for protection), and cuts a curved path to control his speed.

* ''Manga/{{InuYasha}}'': When Inuyasha first encounters the Wind Tunnel, he rams Tessaiga into the ground to prevent himself from being sucked into it. In one of many amusing examples of just how alike the two brothers really are, when Sesshoumaru first experiences the power of the Wind Tunnel, he reacts in exactly the same way (and since he's holding Tessaiga at the time, he even uses the same sword).

The first edition said "as long as they are close enough to touch", implying they would grab the wall to slow their fall to non-lethal speeds.
