* In ''VideoGame/PulpAdventures'', Jungle Jim as the ability to shoot a target with his .30-06 rifle (his standard ranged attack uses a pistol). Mooks hit by the bullet do a ''huge'' backflip, as if they have been punched by Superman.

** One episode of ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' has Devil Ray dying by getting shot and knocked into some exposed wires. Even weirder, there's a ''brief pause'' after he's shot but before he's flung back. It also had Luthor shooting Grodd in the head and knock the giant Gorilla over while he was in a chair.

* In the vampire horror film ''Film/FrightNight1985'' that stars William Ragsdale, Chris Sarandon and Peter O'Toole, [[BigBad Jerry Dandridge]] dies in this manner [[spoiler:when Charlie and Peter Vincent yank the huge curtain from a big picture window.]]

* The weak spot in one of the better shoot out scenes in movie history: the disco scene in ''Film/TheTerminator''. The Terminator, being an android with an armored chassis and probably weighing several hundred kilograms, is knocked about repeatedly by blasts from a 12 Gauge shotgun. The impact should not have done more than mess up his skin a bit. (If the Terminator weighs the same amount as a human, he still shouldn't have been thrown around the way he was.)

Added DiffLines:

* Mostly averted in ''Manga/OnePiece'', where characters who get shot either don't react, or fall to the ground. However, a flashback shows that Bellemere was sent a fair distance back when she was shot in the head/chest. Though that particular example might be justified by the fact that she was shot at point-blank range.


Added DiffLines:

* Inverted in ''VideoGame/HyruleWarriors''; Tetra is so [[LittleMissBadass young]] and [[PintsizedPowerhouse small]] that some of the shots she fires from her flintlock pistol send her flying back a bit from the recoil.

* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' usually avoided this trope after ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved'', but it was put back in for ''VideoGame/HaloReach'' to make it more clear your enemy had died. RealityIsUnrealistic indeed.

* ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'': ComicBook/EmmaFrost confronted her older AlphaBitch sister Adrienne in ''ComicBook/GenerationX''. Adrienne had used a bomb on the school that killed Generation X member Synch. Adrienne had no remorse over this and was bragging about other terrible things she planned to do. She was also immune to Emma's mind powers, so in a ShootTheDog moment, Emma takes out a gun and shoots Adrienne. Adrienne is sent flying backwards into a wall!

* In ''Videogame/FromTheDepths'', ships are rarely ever rocked around by incoming cannon fire, but Advanced Cannons have a special ammo case geared specifically for shoving enemies around: the Graviton ram. Graviton ram equipped bullets convert most of their kinetic energy into a force impulse rather than damage, allowing an 18mm gatling gun to say, lift a enemy ''battleship'' out of the water.

** In ''{{VideoGame/Fallout 4}}'', killing enemies using weapons with the "Explosive" legendary mod will result in their body parts flying everywhere, especially if you have an [[MoreDakka automatic weapon]] or a [[GatlingGood minigun]]. This goes for all weapons as well if you have the "Bloody Mess" perk. HilarityEnsues when you load the Junk Jet with teddy bears, use it to kill a Super Mutant, and the impact causes it to explode into [[ChunkySalsaRule chunky salsa]].
