* Appears in the form a DevelopmentGag in ''[[Videogame/MechWarrior MechWarrior Living Legends]]''. When [[BetaTest playtesting]] a new version of [[LethalLavaLand TC_Inferno]] that featured an odd SpacePlane hangar that required one to taxi out to the runway and turn lest they plow into a wall opposite the hangar, the alpha testers would instead hop onto the plane, immediately mash the afterburners and scream into the unbreakable wall at 400kph -- [[TooDumbToLive repeatedly]]. The testers would also try to land in lava or fly into battlemech hangars. The level designer then proceeded to replace the default hint signs in the spawn rooms with helpful hints like "LAVA IS HOT. DO NOT LAND IN LAVA." and "DO NOT TAXI INTO WALLS".

* While Lyner from ''ArTonelico'' isn't really at fault for what happened at the start of the game, a special mention should be made about his OVA incarnation. To be more specific: He managed to crash the same ship three times, ''on the same day''.

* [[VideoGame/Persona5 Akira and Ann]] make an escape in ''Fanfic/TheEvilQueen'' by holding onto Akira's Persona Arsene and fly out of a tall building. They soon discover, to their horror, that Arsene was never meant to fly while carrying passengers. The trio end up crashing into a police car on the way down.

* Anyone who flies to the Savage Land, according to ComicBook/SpiderMan.

* Anyone According to ComicBook/SpiderMan, anyone who flies to the Savage Land, according Land. The Savage Lands have mystical properties that prevent ''anything'' from flying near or in them other than through manual means. Villains like Sauron can fly because he manually flaps his wings, but Mutants like Rogue and Magneto are left stranded, and technological means just don't work. Get close enough to ComicBook/SpiderMan.the South Pole and you will crash.



* Franchise/{{Kirby}} uses his Warp Star to fly from place to place very quickly, but the flight always seems to end with him crashing into the ground and/or other objects. In ''VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot'', this extends to the [[UnexpectedShmupLevel Jet Mode]] of his Robobot Armor; the segment always ends with him crashing the armor into the ground.

The ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' games weaponize this. Anyone who collects the star piece immediately flies off into the sky and crashes back into the ground, obliterating anyone underneath.

* Launchpad's reputation follows him again in ''VideoGame/DuckTalesRemastered''. He crashes a helicopter off-screen in the Amazon level, and the Himalayas level starts with Scrooge and Launchpad climbing out of the tangled wreckage of their plane. Unsurprisingly, when he needs a pilot to get him to the Moon, Scrooge goes with [[AbsentMindedProfessor Gyro]] instead.

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/TheMightyJingles plays, among other things, ''VideoGame/WarThunder'', including its aircraft combat mode. This mode requires pilots to land to rearm and restock their craft, especially between bombing runs. Jingles is, how shall we say, a bit less talented at landing a craft than he is at flying one. It's gotten to the point where any particularly rough landing that just barely comes short of destroying one's plane is known as a Jingles Landing by the War Thunder community.

* Due to ContinuityReboot, it may not technically count, but nearly every incarnation of ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' begins with the Autobots and Decepticons (or [[WesternAnimation/BeastWars Maximals and Predacons]]) crashing on Earth or recently having done so. ''Very'' rare is the Cybertronian ship that has actually landed. Apparently, robots who turn into vehicles are terrible drivers.
