* For video games, the UrExample would have to be the controversial 1976 (yes, you read that right) ArcadeGame ''Death Race'' by Exidy. Apparently inspired by the movie ''Death Race 2000'', the game involved running over human sounding "gremlins" to turn them into grave markers and thereby score points within a time limit. [[OrSoIHeard Word has it]] that several of the machines were destroyed as a result.

** And this hasn't exhausted the ''really'' sneaky uses. Pushing someone very slowly into water, creative getaway barriers for your enemies, "reparking" your "future" car (the Mule pornmobile immediately comes to mind) or that of your enemy with a heavy other, "parking in" one of your "friends" who has the annoying habit of running into the enemy's bullets, etc. etc., the possibilities are endless.

* During the second season finale of ''Series/BurnNotice'', Michael uses ''unmanned'' Car Fu to clear out a crowd of agents waiting for him. He puts a brick on the gas pedal and aims the Jeep at the bad guys, using it as a battering ram to clear their blockade, and knock down the spike strip that would have punctured their tires if they had tried to drive out first.

* Toward the end of ''Film/{{RoboCop|1987}}'', one of the bad guys is exposed to some toxic waste, [=RoboCop=]'s primary target, [[TheDragon Clarence Boddicker]] uses a car to reduce him to a red smear.... ** Actually that's a two-for subversion. 1. Goon attempts to use Car Fu on Robo (extra strength version, the goon is driving a panel van), but Robo distracts him by firing into the windshield (forcing the goon to duck, pulling the steering wheel with him and thus heeling to the left) and dodges. Goon wasn't watching what was behind Robo-it's a tank of [[HollywoodAcid toxic waste]], which he plows into. Goon stumbles out, melted and screaming, 2. right into the way of a car chase featuring a second cop chasing Boddicker: Boddicker's use was completely unintentional.

* 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.

* In Creator/LarryNiven's short story "The Deadlier Weapon", a hitchhiker pulls a knife on the protagonist driver, who makes it very clear how badly outgunned any hitchhiker trying this stunt is. The Driver buckles his seatbelt, accelerates to over a hundred miles an hour, and tells the would-be car-jacker that he's going to ram the right side of the car (where the car-jacker is sitting) into the nearest underpass support pylon unless the guy tosses the knife out the window. ** Niven later wrote that a couple of people told him they'd done this in real life, and it worked.
