* ''Videogame/DeadSpace'': Most of the enemies, frankly. There is a varied pattern between [[MightyGlacier strong foes being slow]], and weak, low damage output but quick and agile ones.

Unless they're [[LightningBruiser stalkers]] from the second and third games, which will flank and charge you the moment they (it's always "they") get the chance.

* In the Assyrian wall relief the ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lion_Hunt_of_Ashurbanipal Lion Hunt of Ashurbanipal]]'' has several scenes where viscous Asian Lions lunge at the king. One of the scenes has a dying lion lung at the chariot, each muscle beautifully defined, as it becomes impaled upon Ashurbanipal's assistants spears. Another scene has Ashurbanipal kill a lion in mid-jump by grabbing it by the neck and stabbing it in the gut.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Cataclysm}}'', a few zombies (and animals) can pull this on the player, though a harmless "leap" ability to close the distance is far more common. The experimental builds add feral predators, an upgrade to the [[Left4Dead feral hunter]] with a very nasty version that can knock the target over and inflict blood loss.

* Zombies in ''Literature/HereticalEdge'' usually move slowly but can move quickly in short bursts. They typically use this to surprise prey by shambling towards them before covering the last few yards extremely quickly.

* Pretty much every zombie in ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'' is a [[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation disheveled muddy-colored marathon runner]], but the Hunters (as seen in pic) are particularly bad about this. He's also the only one that can actually jump on you. There's also the Charger; clumsy most of the time, but can charge at remarkable speed.

Added DiffLines:

* 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).

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
