* Damien Wayne/Robin caused this to happen to Nightwing in the ''ComicBook/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'' tie-in comic (pictured) - he threw a stick at him, Dick fell down, his neck hit a rock, boom, dead. Many fans complained about how unrealistic it was that an ''acrobat'' didn't know how to fall safely.

* The island in which V3's ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'''s competition seems to be inhabited by some rather malevolent rocks. Brenden Bedard is killed when he trips and hits his head on a rock, Andy Walker falls into a river, hits his head on a rock, and drowns, and Abel Williams is accidentally tripped by his traveling companion and gets a rock to the face for it. This trope is also played with when Kathy Holden playfully pushes her friend Becky Holt onto the ground... and into a bear trap.
