* At the end of the forgettable Creator/CharlesBronson movie ''Film/{{Assassination}}'' the BigBad behind the attempted murder of the First Lady gets thrown through a window. We then hear a radio report saying he [[TreacheryCoverup "died of a heart attack"]] despite the fact that any number of people must have seen the incident, and the injuries would be more consistent with a suicide or accidental fall.
* ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'':
** 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.]]
** In a later scene, Captain America gets blown through a window while blocking an explosive with his shield to save a group of civilians, subsequently landing onto a taxi on the streets below.
* ''Film/BatmanReturns'':
** Max Shreck pushes his assistant Selina Kyle out a window in an attempt to murder her. It doesn't take, mainly due to Selina being revived by her cat Miss Kitty and her feline friends.
** Prior to that, when two clown gangsters leap onto the bonnet of the Batmobile and try to shoot Batman through the bulletproof windshield, Batman simply hits the brakes abruptly, sending them flying into a burning display window.



* In ''Film/BladeRunner'', Zhora is dramatically defenestrated, though she was probably 'retired' by the preceding gunshots.
* ''Film/{{Braveheart}}'': King Edward grows annoyed with his son's male lover and tosses him out the window.
* This happens to Franklin Bean in ''Cadence''. Humorously, if you watch closely, as the cameras change the POV, Franklin falls out the window facing one way, but ends up landing facing the opposite direction.
* ''Franchise/ChildrenOfTheCorn'':
** The children in [[Film/ChildrenOfTheCornIITheFinalSacrifice the second movie]] take over Mrs. West's electronic wheelchair with a RC controller and force it in the middle of road, where it is hit by a truck which sends it flying through the window of the local Bingo hall.
** A corn doll is thrown at Cole in the opening of [[Film/ChildrenOfTheCornGenesis the eight movie]], which somehow sends him flying through a window that is on other side of his house.
* ''Film/{{Curtains}}'' offers an odd example; thanks to cutting two separate scenes together, a character is shown falling outside through a second-story window, and then crashing ''back inside'' through a first-story window.



* Not shown, but there was much talk in ''Film/PulpFiction'' about Marcellus Wallace throwing "Tony Rocky Horror" out of a fifth storey window - supposedly [[DisproportionateRetribution for giving his wife a foot massage]], though Mia denied it.
* Hilariously performed in ''Film/TheShadow''. Except in this case, the Shadow actually tries to ''save'' the Mongol warrior he's interrogating, but the Mongol throws himself off "to serve his Khan." Cut to Moe, the cab driver, reading a book called "Improving Your Psychic Abilities." He says, "I sense someone's coming" just as the Mongol lands right beside his cab!
* In ''Film/ShaPoLang'', this happens to [[spoiler:Inspector Ma Kwun at the end]].
* ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'':
** ''Film/{{Soultaker}}'' features this trope complete with SlowMotion. Unfortunately, this makes the fall looks more comical than a threatening show of force, and is riffed mercilessly as the guy slowly falls down.
** Not to mention ''Film/DangerDeathRay'', where a mook attempts to take out the hero by - wait for it - leaping at him as he stands in front of a window. The hero merely performs a NonchalantDodge, then says "What a shame." The guys, of course, have a field day with the leap, then express disappointment at the lack of a BondOneLiner.
** In ''Film/PumaMan'', both the BigBad '''and''' the sidekick start the movie by tracking down and defenestrating people who matched the biological profile of Puma Man (because his cat-like powers would allow him to survive the fall). The only difference is, the villain is the one who expresses something like remorse, saying that he hopes they've found the right one for the sake of the innocent men yet to be "tested". Vadinho, however, didn't throw anybody but Tony out a window and that was because he already knew he was the Puma Man. The FridgeLogic here should be readily apparent.
* ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}'':
** In ''Film/TheTerminator'', this is what the Terminator does to nearly everyone it fights. Sometimes it picks someone up and ''looks around'' for a window to toss them through.
** ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'':
*** The above is mocked in ''T2'', where the Terminator attempts to throw someone through an unbreakable window in the asylum.
*** The T-800 is pitched through a plate glass store window by the T-1000. [[MadeOfIron It doesn't slow it for long]].
*** Also played straight at the beginning in the biker bar, where it throws one of the bikers through a window, and he lands on a parked car.
* This happens a lot in ''Film/RoboCop1987'', to bad guys and Robo alike, the most famous example being [[spoiler:[[BigBad Dick Jones]]]]. Another memorable one is when Robo tosses Clarence Boddicker through several glass windows while Mirandizing him.



* ''Film/BatmanReturns'':
** Max Shreck pushes his assistant Selina Kyle out a window in an attempt to murder her. It doesn't take, mainly due to Selina being revived by her cat Miss Kitty and her feline friends.

* ''Film/{{Braveheart}}'': King Edward grows annoyed with his son's male lover and tosses him out the window.
* ''Franchise/StarWars'':
** In ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' Palpatine uses his Force Lightning to shoot Mace Windu out the window (and it's a rare case where the glass had already been broken).
** In ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'', during their lightsaber duel in Cloud City Darth Vader sends Luke out through a window using heavy pieces of equipment shoved at him with the Force.
* The death of [[spoiler: Wong Chi-shing]] in the first film of ''Film/TheInfernalAffairsTrilogy''.
* This happens to Franklin Bean in ''Cadence''. Humorously, if you watch closely, as the cameras change the POV, Franklin falls out the window facing one way, but ends up landing facing the opposite direction.

"The Defenestration of Ermintrude Inch" is story of a couple in 1950s Britain, in which the husband, Osbert, accuses his wife Ermintrude of talking too much--specifically 100 times as much as he does. Being a sound engineer for the BBC, Osbert sets up a word-counter, which works at first, but [[spoiler:his wife figures out a way to make it so that ''Osbert'' has the higher count, which infuriates him, particularly after he figures out that she'd surreptitiously recorded his speech and had him playing on a loop while he was not at home.

* ''Series/AgentCarter'' essentially BookEnds its first season with fight scenes that end like this -- in the first episode, Carter throws the [[NebulousEvilOrganisation Leviathan]] agent who broke into her apartment out the apartment's window, while the season finale has her kick [[spoiler: [[TheDragon Dottie]]]] out of the window of the hanger radio room she's confronted the villains in.

* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration''. This rarely happens in the ''Star Trek'' universe, as the windows are generally made of transparent aluminum (and overlook the vacuum of space). That didn't stop Geordi and Ro in "The Next Phase," however. Afflicted by {{Intangibility}}, they are pursued by a Romulan in the same situation. When Geordi comes across him and Ro brawling, he manages to punch the phased Romulan ''straight through the hull'' -- partially including a nearby window -- and into space.
* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'', however, fleshes out Ferengi culture and notes that while they don't have a lot of capital crimes, the few they have are traditionally executed by this trope. Being thrown from the top of the 40-story Tower of Commerce not only ensures the sentence is carried out, but the landing site down below is set up so that observing Ferengi (being Ferengi) can make bets on the landing.
* When ''Series/MrRobot'''s protagonist, Elliot Alderson, was a kid, his dad pushed him through a window because he told his mom about his dad's leukemia. While we don't see him being pushed through the window, we do see the aftereffects, where he's laying in the snow, blood coming from the back of his head, as his parents rush to his side.
* ''Series/HitlerTheRiseOfEvil'': Fritz Gerlich is contacted by a man has inside information on Nazi Party collusion with shady foreign investors. This source is later pursued by a bunch of SA men at a train station, who throw him through a window to his death.
