* ''Series/MrBean'' subverts it. Mr. Bean is left to give a man CPR at the bus stop after he has a heart attack but does not want direct contact during mouth-to-mouth and also seems to have fun with the rise and fall of the man's chest. After successfully reviving him with his car's jumper cables, he only knocks him unconscious again and also disables the ambulance that comes to save him by using it to jump the battery of his dead car.

* Used in an early episode of ''Series/BarneyMiller'' with a man that tried to electrocute himself in the bathroom and apparently succeded, but Barney starts compressions after Chano uses a mirror to verify whether he's breathing or not. After the man starts turning blue, Barney resorts to walloping him in the chest with his fist, which restores him to breathing. He does remain unconscious, however, and the [=EMTs=] do point out that his ribs are broken.
-->'''Harris:''' Pop him again!
* In the television adaptation of ''Series/WolfHall'', Henry appears to be quite dead after his jousting accident because when Cromwell asks for a mirror to check breathing he's told it was already tried. After another few moments of chaos he checks again by holding his hand to Henry's nose and, feeling breath, proceeds to thump Henry in the chest twice. It works, and Henry sits up.

** It's also somewhat justified as there's no physical damage, rather her heart has simply stopped due to {{Synchronization}} with a guy who had just died.

* ''Film/TheKentuckytFriedMovie''. During the "High Adventure" segment the French adventurer and explorer Claude [=LeMond=] is interviewed on the title talk show. During the segment the interviewer's heart stops beating and [=LeMond=] restarts his heart by pounding on his chest a couple of times. The interviewer is revived and has no further problems.

* Used cautiously in the B-movie ''Atomic Shark'', in which a pretty girl does mouth-to-mouth to revive a guy who'd fallen into the sea. Because the guy in question is about ''twelve'', visually the scene doesn't play out the "sexy" aspect of this trope at all, even though the ''dialogue'' strongly implies the kid was faking unconsciousness in order to get kissed by the young woman he has a crush on.

* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' had a justified example in [[Recap/AgentsOfSHIELDS2E19TheDirtyHalfDozen "The Dirty Half-Dozen"]]: Skye can [[BadVibrations induce earthquake-like vibrations]], so she she just uses that on Lincoln's stopped heart.

* Doing CPR on someone who's collapsed from cyanide poisoning is 100% ''un''reliable, as getting air into their lungs or keeping their blood moving won't do any good: the toxin makes it impossible for tissues to use any oxygen this might deliver to them. Worse yet, if the cyanide was inhaled or ingested orally, attempting mouth-to-mouth could potentially cause toxic cross-contamination, and quickly ''kill the person trying to save the victim''.

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel'', if you choose to do a study session with Crow in Chapter 3, he teaches Rean about CPR, and then suggests that CPR on a pretty girl is a gateway to "fireworks."
