* In ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'', the titular character can not only annihilate enemies while driving (as mentioned in the first section), she can throw carsat Angels with ''or without'' the help of Madama Butterly. During the fight against [[spoiler Temperantia]], she can throw tramways and even trucks at him with little to no effort.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'', Jeanne frequently (and quite masterfully) uses her bike to deal the hurt to Angels and, at one point, battle Bayonetta. The latter is just as skilled as proven in Chapter 8.

* In ''Anime/RidingBean'', the effective {{Pilot}} for ''Manga/GunsmithCats'', Bean Bandit gets a security guard who [[BerserkButton calls his car a piece of shit]] by pinning him to a tree with his front tire, nearly running him over up the trunk, then using the tire to ''scrape him off the trunk and over the car''. If you're wondering how the hell Bean can do that, keep in mind his car is ''[[CoolCar absurdly]]'' modified, and built that he can turn the wheels 90 degrees and drive that way.

* ''Anime/SailorMoon'' has Sailors Moon, Mercury, and Mars using ''Plane Fu'' on Jadeite [[InTheNameOfTheMoon in an attempt to kill him]] to stop him from burning Tokyo to the ground. It started with him magically animating the planes to run ''them'' over, but Mars made the spell backfire and target him instead by sticking one of her {{Paper Talisman}}s to him. Arguably veers into ForkliftFu territory.

* ''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.

Sadly, the others are out cold and she gets no credit for the knockout. The author even refers to this trope on the back of the book jacket as 'Hummer Fu'.

* ''Comicbook/{{Preacher}}'': After a messy fight with his new friend Jesse and seemingly parting ways for good, Cassidy learns that Jesse's life is in danger and tries to save him by ramming his pick-up truck into the [[BadassLongcoat Saint]] [[ImplacableMan of]] [[NighInvulnerability Killers]] at full speed.

* In ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'', Ian takes advantage of an area with reduced gravity to pick up a car and crush some Dark Elves with it, correctly reasoning that while the wonky gravity may have reduced the car's '''weight''', it's ''mass'' remains the same. Some nice in-universe FridgeBrilliance on his part.



** The latter problem lead to a fully outfitted system for Car Fu in the ''nWoD'', including statistics for vehicles, damage based on speed and weight of both "participants", and examples of when Car Fu is a really bad idea (using a small compact to try to ram a Death Raging Werewolf, for example).

* In one strip of ''Webcomic/GoneWithTheBlastwave'', Crosshairs and Pyro find a tank that's run out of fuel, and don't want to just booby-trap it and leave it for the enemy. Their solution? Push it off a building onto some enemy soldiers.

** It returns along with the stage it comes from in ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations'', only now with [[UpToEleven buzzsaws and rocket boosters!]]boosters!]] This game also reveals what the truck was carrying, which are military drones, deployed from the back (while the truck is still in motion) when the truck driver accidentally passes Sonic.


Added DiffLines:

** An infamous stretch in ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'' has Sonic being chased by a tornado that's constantly sucking in cars lying about and launching them in Sonic's direction, as if it's sentient and malicious. In the same game, Silver the Hedgehog also has a habit of attacking by telekinetically lifting cars and chucking them at his opponents. Like the truck, both of these return in ''Sonic Generations'', though in ''Generations'' Silver not only tosses cars at Sonic, at one point he telekinetically crumples up hundreds of cars, and other shrapnel he finds, into a building-sized ball and rolls it down at Sonic.
