* Vehicular homicide is one of the safer ways to kill people in ''VideoGame/SaintsRow2''. The "[[ShowWithinAShow FUZZ]]" minigame even keeps track of how many enemies you run over and starts penalizing your score if you do it too often. On the other hand, enemies or even civilians can also do serious damage with their own cars, so be careful going too far on food.

** In ''Film/{{Halloween|1978}}'' (1978) a cop sees Michael walking the street and runs him over, but it turns out it was just a high school football player wearing a similar mask.

* ''Anime/Pokemon'' features a slightly unusual and milder example with a pokemon battle that takes place in the back of a large trailer truck being driven by James of Team Rocket. At one notable point in the battle when Ash's pokemon are about to attack Jessie's pokemon and Meowth, James announce "TURN ATTACK" and makes a very sudden swerving movement, causing Ash's pokemon to lose their footing and slam hard against the side of the truck's interior walls, taking some damage in the process.

* ''Fanfic/BlackCrayons'' series: In one of the installments ''A Child's Innocence'', [[spoiler: [[ActionGirl Mikaela Banes]] hotwires a police car, backs into a Decepticon and then drives it up a piece of debris used as a ramp, getting out at the last moment, the car then goes into the air and then lands on another Decepticon.]]

* Pretty much the point of "Highwaymen", in which a serial killer who uses a 1972 El Dorado as his weapon of choice is pursued by the widower of a past victim. All the action sequences in the movie occur involve the killer's car and the hero's 1968 Barracuda, resulting in some pretty spectacular driving--by the killer in particular, as [[spoiler:he is severely handicapped and can't function outside of the El Dorado.]]

* ''Film/{{Highwaymen}}'', which featured a serial killer who used his car to engage in vehicular homicide, has a lot of car action and various chase sequences.

** ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved'' often ended up with this ''accidentally'', since it was rather easy to injure or kill Marines if you had to right an overturned Warthog in close quarters. Something similar applies to ''VideoGame/Halo5Guardians'', where it's easy to accidentally kill over your entire team if the side of your tank just barely nudges them.

* ''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/{{Halo 3}} 3]]'' kind of {{nerf}}ed it, though. In more ways than one.
** That said, ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'' did encourage Car Fu for having achievements for running over and killing someone with a Mongoose (a light, small ATV) and killing someone with objects placed in Forge. (The Achievement is called "Dropped a Tank on Him.")

** In ''VideoGame/HaloReach'', attempting to splatter someone who had activated Armor Lock would resort in your own vehicle being destroyed.

Added DiffLines:

** ''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.
