* The Zombie Soldiers in ''VideoGame/MetalSlug 3'' and ''4'' use this as an attack. Interestingly enough, it's also a SuicideAttack, and they die in a small explosion of infectious fluids and parts when they hit the player (or sail over and hit the floor).

* In ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'', the [[NotUsingTheZWord hordelings]] are usually slow and lumbering, but get a sudden shot of speed and energy whenever the enemy is in sight.

* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}''
** Promethean Knights in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 4}}'', who are normally quite slow-moving, will sometimes suddenly lunge, sprint or zig-zag-hyperspeed-charge at you to attack you in melee (or with their Scattershot), usually after you've broken their shield at longer ranges. Also, as in all Halo games, the Energy Sword can trigger a lunge at a certain range. The Thruster Pack armor ability in ''Halo 4'' can also be used to suddenly close distance for a melee or shotgun attack, or to board a vehicle. And finally, the Flood creatures from the War Games Flood playlist possess significantly boosted Thruster Packs, higher base movement speeds, and blade-arms that act like Energy Swords, so deadly lunging is pretty much their baseline tactic.
** In earlier ''Halo'' games, lunging was commonly used by various Flood forms, and was basically all that [[PersonalSpaceInvader Infection Forms]] really did, to particularly lethal effect against unshielded enemies.

** Ropes (i.e. [[CallARabbitASmeerp snakes]])) charge straight at Link when they see him. They're [[GameplayAndStorySegregation allegedly]] poisonous, but don't do anything but immediately deal a small amount of damage.

[[folder:Literature]]
* In the Literature/{{Boojumverse}} story "The Wreck of the ''Charles Dexter Ward''", the {{Artificial Zombie}}s called the reanimated seem to move at a slow, clumsy shuffle. This lulls one character into a false sense of security, and he meets his end by getting too close to a reanimated which suddenly lunges with unexpected speed.

* The Franchise/{{Alien}} in most ''Franchise/AlienVsPredator'' games can do this. It is [[FragileSpeedster not slow on foot to begin with]], and some variants can pounce over the map if needed.
