* In the 1948 Creator/CarlBarks WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck comic "The Golden Christmas Tree", Donald and the nephews encounter an evil, shape-shifting witch. Donald manages to trap her [[ShapeshifterModeLock in the form of a gas can]], and later kicks the witch/can off a cliff during one of his trademark tantrums. It's a pretty bizarre story.

Of course, considering Ratigan's direct inspiration, [[Franchise/SherlockHolmes Professor Moriarty]], also got taken out by a fall, it's not much of a surprise.

** Ad Avis in ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryII'' dies this way, stumbling off a tower. A Thief player hits him with a thrown dagger, which makes him lose balance. A Wizard will bounce a force bolt off a pillar, hitting the brazier next to him, causing him to recoil from it (in the AGD Interactive FanRemake, it ignites his robes) and fall to his death. A Fighter will do a slide and knock the brazier into him with his shield. [[spoiler:The fall does kill him; however, as we learn in the 4th game, Ad Avis was the servant of a vampire who fed him some of her own blood. When the fall killed him, he turned into a vampire himself and fled.]]

* ''Film/NoHoldsBarred'', the 1989 movie starring HulkHogan that became better known for being parlayed into a "[[{{Kayfabe}} real-life]]" feud between Hogan (as a wrestler named Rip) and his co-star Tiny Lister, in character as his movie character, Zeus, an UnstoppableMonster. In the movie's climatic scene, Rip and Zeus are brawling on a high balcony above the arena floor when Zeus shoves Rip down a stairwell, apparently defeating him. However, Rip recovers and finally wears down Zeus enough to knock him off the balcony; Zeus tumbles from the balcony, presumably falling to his death when he lands in the wrestling ring below with such force that the ring collapses.

At one point, the trope kicks into effect when Rosco,having earlier locked up the Dukes on a minor traffic charge, and having impounded the General Lee has the car driven out to the country, places the car's transmission in neutral, and pushes it down the hill ... toward a cliff. Cooter is conveniently nearby, sees what's going on, and manages to stop the General Lee (by using his tow truck as a "brake") but then Cooter has his own hands full when he has trouble stopping the truck.
