** Loki hurls Tony through the window of the 80th-or-so floor of Stark Tower in a rage after [[spoiler:his attempt to brainwash Tony fails. Tony saves himself by realizing what's about to happen and quickly calling for JARVIS to send the Mark VII armor (which can assemble itself around him even while he's plummeting towards the ground) through the window after him.]]

* Hilariously parodied in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''. When Ichigo kicks Ebern Azgiaro through his bedroom's window after he shows up out of nowhere standing on his bed (which seems to be kind-of a minor BerserkButton for him), Orihime goes GenreSavvy and actually ''opens said window'' so it won't break.

* In the first episode of ''WesternAnimation/BountyHamster'', an already GenreSavvy Cassie waits by the window for her inept BountyHunter Marion to be tossed through after losing a spontaneous BarBrawl.

* One of the bad guys gets thrown out of a high-rise window by Burt Reynolds in ''Sharky's Machine''. Notable in Real Life for the record-setting high-fall stunt performed by "King of the Stuntmen" Dar Robinson.

* In TheBible's Literature/BooksOfKings, the evil Queen Dowager Jezebel was betrayed by her own retinue and thrown out of the palace window. It's also a stunningly powerful aversion of the hero/villain dichotomy with regard to how horrifically it's described. She hits the ground, falls apart like Judas ''[[HumiliationConga and gets eaten by dogs]].'' (The latter had previously been prophesied by Elijah, incidentally.)



* There was also the defenestration of Queen Dowager Jezebel sometime around 850 BCE (although it wasn't called "defenestration" at the time). It's also a stunningly powerful aversion of the hero/villain dichotomy with regard to how horrifically it's described. She hits the ground, falls apart like Judas ''[[HumiliationConga and gets eaten by dogs.]]''

* ''[[Fanfic/GuardiansWizardsAndKungFuFighters Guardians, Wizards, and Kung-Fu Fighters]]'': At one point during the Sack of Torus Filney, a duel occurs between Phobos' TokenGoodTeammate Viscount Servantis and the Rebellion's TokenEvilTeammate Rhouglar, which ends with Servantis kicking Rhouglar out a window. The fall isn't far enough to kill him, but he's left heavily injured.

* In one episode of ''Series/TheTick2016'', the eponymous Tick is thrown through an office window something like 20 stories up by [[spoiler:anti-hero Overkill]], then shown thinking about how he is falling and grabbing onto a flag pole to try to stop. Sai flag pole breaks and he slams face first into the ground. He gets up completely okay, afterwards, being [[NighInvulnerability nigh-invulnerable]].

* ''WebComic/SluggyFreelance'': In "On the Run", [[KillerRabbit Bun-bun]] takes over a group of Black Ops Elves who used to work for Santa Claus, keeping tabs on everyone being naughty and nice. Since Bun-bun has made it to the top of the naughty list every year and repeatedly tried to kill Santa Claus, the elves are very unwilling to work for him. Thus, his method of persuasion is to go down the chain of command throwing people out of high windows until he gets to someone willing to serve him. Much later, in "Falling", he throws that elf out of a window too for doing stuff behind his back, but he's got softer, and it's only high enough to break his bones.
