* In the pilot of ''WesternAnimation/TaleSpin'', Baloo dramatically rescues Kit this way after he's been thrown off a pirate airship. Mind, the airship was several hundred (if not a thousand) feet in the air, and not only did Baloo snag him by his sweater a couple dozen feet before hitting the water, he did so from the cockpit of a plane moving at the speed of sound --so not only was Kit's descent instantly arrested, he was horizontally accelerated to Mach 1 in a split second.

*** Parodied in ''ComicBook/FiftyTwo'' when Perry tells a (depowered) Clark Kent that he's losing his edge and tells him he's fired unless he takes something out of his wife's play book. Clark immediately jumps out of the high office window...[[spoiler:and is caught by new hero Supernova, who Clark immediately presses for a story.]]
** 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 smart enough to know he's got time and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Unl8l8VdONw calmly calls for help over the radio]].

** 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, but it certainly ''is'' [[RuleOfCoolcool.]]
