* ''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]].

** ''TheWire'' largely avoided this trope (except in the finale of season 3, when Omar's shotgun sends someone flying onto DisintegratingFurniture).

* In the otherwise classic 1985 thriller ''EdgeOfDarkness'', the lead character's daughter is shot by both barrels of a double-barreled shotgun and ends up being lifted up in the air, her legs about three feet off the ground... in slow-motion.
* The TV series ''Fargo'' appears to run on this trope as well, with characters who get hit by shotgun blasts flying backwards as if being jerked by wires.

* ''TabletopGame/HeroSystem'' has "Knockback" as an optional combat rule that many groups treat as standard. But the system ''did'' start out as the superhero game ''Champions'', and superpowered attacks sending opponents flying ''is'' a part of comic book battles. In more realistic genres, [=GMs=] are advised to use Knockdown instead. Even if Knockback is in use, Killing attacks such as gunfire do less Knockback on average.

* The shotguns in the ''SyphonFilter'' games do this, in fact you use one to knock the second game's FinalBoss [[HelicopterBlender into a helicopter rotor]].

* Partially justified and subverted in the first episode of ''TheBoondocks''. Riley shoots Ed Wuncler III with a SPAS-12 combat shotgun (requested by Ed to prove his body armor works) and only makes him fall backwards (albeit out a window) but sends Riley -- who is only eight -- flying backward and injures his arm.
