** ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'':
*** Nick Fury and the [[spoiler:HYDRA mooks pretending to be DC police officers]] both use some really creatively violent car maneuvers against each other during their chase scene.
*** The Winter Soldier gets the [[IncrediblyLamePun black belt]] in car fu for the sequence where he tosses [[spoiler:Agent Sitwell]] out of the protagonists' car into an oncoming truck, then disables their car by yanking out the steering wheel through the windshield, at which point it gets rammed from behind by another truck driven by his support team.


Added DiffLines:

** ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'':
*** Cap, yet again, sends his "borrowed" car spinning out ahead of him to try to put a stop to the underpass chase scene.
*** The Winter Soldier graduates to [[spoiler:''helicopter fu'' when he's [[BrainwashedAndCrazy re-brainwashed]] by Zemo and tries to use the [[TurbineBlender moving blades]] of the chopper he's piloting to kill Cap]].
*** Cap and [[spoiler:Ant-Man work together to throw a truck at Team Iron Man during the airport battle. Cap gives Ant-Man a dirty look when it turns out to be not a water truck but a [[StuffBlowingUp tanker truck]]]].

* In ''[[VideoGame/{{Battlefield}} Battlefield 2142]]'', one notable tactic for annoying the hell out of enemy infantry is to approach them in a jeep, beep the horn, and then run them down when they turn to investigate the sound. This tactic also extends to killing tanks and APCs by loading a jeep full of plastic explosives, driving full throttle toward the vehicle, jumping out, and hitting the detonator. This is known, for good reason, as "jihad jeeping".

** In ''Battlefield 3'', this tactic comes back with the c4-packed jeep.
** ''Battlefield: Bad Company 2'' had the perfect design for the proper form of jihad jeeping: a squad of friends could choose to join a "hardcore" lobby, where friendly fire was turned on. The pre-made squad would then all choose the assault class and throw all their C4 on an ATV; they would then restock on C4 by throwing an ammo box, and would continue to throw as much C4 as possible on the ATV. Two squad mates would then get on the ATV-one driving and one on the back- and would drive into buildings, vehicles, groups of enemies, etc. Here's where hardcore comes in: Instead of getting off the ATV and letting it carry itself to the target, the players would ram into the target and detonate the C4, killing themselves in the process due to friendly fire being on. Now ''that'' is how you Jihad jeep.

* For the RammingAlwaysWorks version of this trope, when facing a roadblock made of vehicles it's recommended you aim your car at the boot of the vehicle (not the heavy engine compartment) and push through at ''slow'' speed.

** ''[[Film/MadMax Mad Max]]'' makes dramatic use of it, [[spoiler: first Jessie and Sprog are run over by Toecutter et al on bikes, then Toecutter himself meets his end by bike vs bus]].
** The companion comics set between Thuderdome and Furu Road explain some of Max's Fury Road visions, as he was [[spoiler: involved in protecting a girl called Glory the Child and her mother, who died via run over at the end of their arc]].
** The fourth movie, ''[[Film/MadMaxFuryRoad Fury Road]]'', demonstrates this nicely when Nux flips a switch in his car to fill it up with gasoline and lights a flare, intending to die and go to Valhalla... and this is one of the ''least'' insane things done with cars in this series! Others being the deaths of [[spoiler: The Spendid Angharad and unborn child as well as Valkyrie and an older Vuvalini woman]]. Cars are definitely bad for the womenfolk with children in this universe.

* In ''Film/ForrestGump'' a group of high school students decide they want to run Forrest over with their pickup because he's stupid. Fortunately, Forrest figures out he can cut across a nearby field, which ends up getting him a football scholarship to the University of Alabama. Small point: Forrest is InspirationallyDisadvantaged. His classmates are "stupid." "Stupid is as stupid does," after all.

* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' made Car Fu especially fun for drivers, considering getting hit by a vehicle was almost guaranteed to kill you, regardless of its speed. ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'' and ''[[VideoGame/{{Halo3}} 3]]'' kind of {{nerf}}ed it, though. In more ways than one.
