* Franchise/{{Batman}} in TheDCAU. The Batwing crashes in nearly every appearance it made in JL/JLU. It does have landing gear; it lands once in the very first JU episode, although Franchise/{{Superman}} has to catch it and land it for Batman because a wing was shot off, and again in "Wild Cards," without incident.

* Enryu from ''Anime/GaoGaiGar'' has a tendency towards this, despite being a transforming ''fire truck'': any time he's launched out of the Mirror Catapult, it can be safely assumed that his return to the ground will be devoid of any grace whatsoever. [[spoiler: And apparently his Chinese counterpart, Rairyu, shares the same problem, as do ''both'' of the French Dragons, Kuryu and Anryu. 2/3 of the Dragon Braves, it seems, are masters of the divine art of the faceplant.]]

** {{Lampshaded}} in ''WesternAnimation/DuckTalesTheMovieTreasureOfTheLostLamp'', when Launchpad confesses that his flying leasons were a [[IncrediblyLamePun crash course]]. This was after he managed to crash a ''camel''.

** Excluding Foehammer, it seems that the typical Pelican pilot doesn't know ''how'' to land without crashing.
** Much like the case above with Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, despite not always being the captain, most of the ships that the Chief embarks on within the games end up crashing, exploding, being chopped in half by a collapsing portal, etc. About the only exception is the UNSC ''Infinity,'' which is the most powerful ship in the UNSC fleet.

* Whenever we meet Spaceman Spiff in the ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' comics, he's crash landing on some planet. Often it's after being shot down by aliens, but one throwaway panel of a {{Sunday Strip|s}} has him wondering what the "E" on the fuel gauge means.

* Whenever we meet Spaceman Spiff in the ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' comics, he's crash landing on some planet.
** There's a ShoutOut to this in the card game ''TabletopGame/CosmicEncounter'', with the "Spiff" race, who have the power to "crash-land" when they lose a battle.
** Also, Calvin rarely pilots his sled or wagon without flying off a ravine or crashing into a tree.
