* ''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.

* This nearly occurs in ''[[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.
* 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.

* In ''RollOfThunderHearMyCry'' the heroine, Cassie, a black girl, bumps into Lillian Jean, a white girl who is the daughter of a ''very'' influential bigot. Cassie barely pays attention to what Lillian Jean is saying until L.J. orders her to apologize. Cassie's little brother, who is a courageous boy, tells her to let Cassie alone. Lillian Jean doesn't listen, of course, and tells her to get down in the street. Cassie protests and tells her she isn't going anywhere, and that if she's so scared of being bumped, Lillian Jean should go down there herself. Then, Lillian Jean's father shows up and pushes Cassie down in the street and scolds her for being such an impudent brat. Cassie runs away from the curious crowd and runs into her grandmother, who makes her apologize, and humiliates the poor girl. Lillian Jean later gets what she deserves.

* ''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.
