* This is done twice in the ''DSBTInsaniT'' episode 'Beach Brawl'. First is when Shawn catches Asia after Sand Snake knocks her into the air, second is when Bill 2 catches Whitney after Cell explodes.

* Superman does this in virtually every movie in some form or another. In ''Film/SupermanReturns'', his catch of an entire powerless airplane somewhat inverts the usual trope in that it is the man who catches the vehicle. It is also a CrowningMomentOfAwesome and arguably the best scene in the movie.

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', Yuna summons Valefor ''in midair'' to catch her as she falls off the tower in Bevelle. Sure, physics might not work that way, but hey, it's ''Franchise/FinalFantasy''. Besides, ''damn'', [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome that was awesome.]]
* In ''VideoGame/{{Drakengard}} 2'', Nowe seems to be in the habit of jumping off of high places on purpose simply because he knows that Legna will catch him. He also gets to play hero by doing this: Manah falls off a cliff, Nowe jumps off after her, lands on Legna, and the pair of them race downwards until they're beneath Manah, where Nowe catches her safely in his arms. It's not quite a CrowningMomentOfAwesome, considering some of the things Nowe gets to do later in the game, but it's pretty close.

** This comes up no later than the second episode of [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012 the Nickelodeon cartoon]], where Don saves April from falling out of a helicopter. It doesn't make quite as much sense as the above example, [[RuleOfCool but it certainly]] ''[[AwesomeMoments is]]'' [[AwesomeMoments cool.]]

*** Mirage manages to do this ''twice'' more in episode 13 - the first time by grabbing Hayate and taking him to safety after he ejects, and the second time by stopping Freja's freefall.

** In ''Anime/MacrossDelta'', Mirage pulls this off to save Freyja and Hayate. While the latter two are ''still in a Valkyrie''.

* ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'': Minmay falls from Hikaru's Valkyrie during the attack on South Ataria Island, and Hikaru not only does a power dive to save her, but manages to open the jet canopy, pull her in, close the canopy, and pull up in time.
** This was referenced in a similar scene in the new series, ''Anime/MacrossFrontier''. Said homage is slightly modified in that Ranka wasn't falling, but she was being pulled ''up'' into the vacuum of space due to a shattered dome, thus she was in danger of ending up ThrownOutTheAirlock.

* ''Film/TerminatorSalvation''. Marcus Wright drives a truck onto a bridge over a high canyon, but they're attacked by a flying Hunter Killer and the truck slams through the guardrail, knocking Kyle Reese and another child out the door. As they plunge into the canyon to their deaths, they're caught in mid-air by the giant robot they'd been fleeing earlier. So their lives have been saved...[[FateWorseThanDeath for the short term]].

* Near the end of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'', just as Vita exhausts her magical energy and falls from a great height, Hayate reaches the room where Vita is and catches her badly battered body.

** Superman (again) does it to Batman (again) after the Batplane is eaten by alien nanomachine dogs and his ejection seat is destroyed. Fortunately, Batman is GenreSavvy enough to know he's got time and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Unl8l8VdONw calmly calls for help over the radio]].
