* In June 1987, 16-year old Kari Lynn Nixon disappeared within the two blocks between her home and the local grocery store. 7 years later, a bank robbery suspect confessed that he had abducted the girl as she walked home and taken her to his cabin where he raped and murdered her. His motive? That she had bumped into him while in the store and not apologized sufficiently. The cops scoffed at his explanation and speculated that he had simply been out prowling for a victim when he came upon the unfortunate girl.

* ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' brings us the assignment "Crime in Progress", where a Volus accuses a young Quarian of picking his pocket, solely because she bumped into him, and he left his credit chit in a store. The kicker? He doesn't apologize, and the cop brought in on the matter throws in a threat to arrest her for vagrancy. A Quarian on Pilgrimage is a vagrant by definition.

* This nearly occurs in ''[[Film/TomYumGoong The Protector]]'' between Tony Jaa and [[spoiler:JackieChan]] in a cameo at an airport. They bump into each other, turn and quickly strike fighting poses until they realize that it was a mistake and politely apologize to each other.

* ''TheBoondocks'' uses this as an example of [[NWordPrivileges Nigga moments]]. Two black guys bump into each other and start a shootout. Nobody is injured and they realize how ignorant they were being and work out their differences... and then the cops come and kill them both.

* The titular "girl" in ''TheGirlWithTheDragonTattoo'' gets into a rather nasty fight with street hooligans in a subway after she bumps into them.
* ''DoTheRightThing'' has a scene with this, though nothing actually comes of the threats and the guy doing the bumping doesn't seem to be intimidated.
* In ''{{Literature/Trainspotting}}'', Begbie beats a man senseless at a pub for bumping into him and making him spill his pint.

* In the ''RipKirby'' comic strip, Lady Lilliput [[KickTheDog smacks a small child with her cane]] for bumping into her, demonstrating she's not the harmless eccentric she first appeared. She would have done worse, but [[HairOfGoldHeartOfGold Honey]] intervened for mercy.

* Happens way back in ''[[Anime/{{Pokemon}} The Kanto Saga Pokémon]]'' episode "The Song of Jigglypuff". Jessie and James bump into two random people (a large, fat woman and a thug, respectively}. Because the entire town is unable to sleep, everyone is cranky and irritable, so Team Rocket [[ForegoneConclusion gets the crap beat out of them]]. (The fat woman actually '''spanks''' Jessie). To add salt to the wound, [[WhyDidYouMakeMeHitYou the people beating on James and Jessie were the ones who bumped into them]]. Ash also bumps into someone, but avoids getting into a fight. Later in the episode (after Jigglypuff's forced everyone to sleep), the now less grumpy guy apologises.
