* Oddly enough using a lightweight wall to do this stunt makes it more dangerous as its more likely to drift as it falls.

* In ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'', when Kronk slices the rope holding the chandelier over (the extremely skinny) Yzma. Once the dust clears, it is revealed that Yzma is unscathed, in the middle of the fixture, with a candle in her mouth. Interestingly, Kronk claims that this trope doesn't excist when he states that her being perfectly fine is weird and that it "usually works".

* In ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'', this trope ends up subverting FallingChandelierOfDoom when Kronk slices the rope holding drops the chandelier over (the on ([[LeanAndMean the extremely skinny) skinny]]) Yzma.

Interestingly, Kronk claims ends up {{lampshading}} the subversion by noting that this trope doesn't excist when he states that her being perfectly fine is weird and that it "usually "this usually works".

** The TempleOfDoom from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' has a related case will U-shaped rolling boulders.

** The TempleOfDoom from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' has a related case will with U-shaped rolling boulders.boulders. This one is only a minor example, as it's really a timing puzzle. If you mess up the timing and get squished by the boulders, you just get sent back to the beginning of the trap, without even any loss of health.

* TropeCodifier: Creator/BusterKeaton in ''SteamboatBillJr'' Keaton's stunt was noted for being done without any trickery (and for being botched by the crew at one point -- they measured it wrong and missed flattening Keaton's skull by mere inches). The page picture is the end result. It's reported that both the cameraman and director were too scared to watch when the stunt was preformed. It's worth noting that Keaton decided a prop wall would not look realistic enough so the wall used is a real wall built to code and would have easily crushed him. An earlier example can be found in Keaton's short ''Film/OneWeek,'' in which the wall first pivots around a horizontal beam, thereby acting as a vertical BookcasePassage.

* It happens as a ShoutOut to old films such as ''Creator/BusterKeaton'''s ''Film/SteamboatBillJr'' on an episode of ''WesternAnimation/SheepInTheBigCity''. However, after the wall fell on Sheep like pictured above, it is followed by a train running over him.
