* ''MadMaxFuryRoad'': When Furiosa is chased into the enormous sandstorm she is chased by warboys in smaller cars. When one gets close, she ''eases into a tornado'' by pushing against it with her own truck, while her own truck is unaffected.

* Averted in ''Series/StormChasers'', a DiscoveryChannel documentary series that follows teams of storm chasers as they pursue tornadoes across the countryside, the potential lethality of the storms being constantly reiterated. It is even highlighted when in one episode [[CoolCar a purpose-built armored vehicle designed to drive into a tornado and survive]] has one of its windows blown out when a tornado suddenly intensifies on top of them, the driver and one of the passengers suffering cuts to their faces from flying glass. The fourth season starts off showing the effects of the [=EF4=] tornado that struck Yazoo City, Mississippi in April 2010, one man being shown with a bloodied head and another man is found on the ground unconscious. The 5th season takes this UpToEleven with multiple tornadoes striking major cities throughout the Midwest and Southeast. SceneryGorn out the wazoo.

* ''Film/IntoTheStorm2014'' shows the bigger tornadoes picking up and tossing debris from a fair distance away, but the smaller, ropelike twisters seem to only be able to damage and pick up things the funnel cloud physically touches.

* Tornadoes can also happen in Great Britain and elsewhere in Europe, Asia, and Australia, much to the surprise of people who think it [[OnlyInAmerica only ever happens in the USA]]. British tornadoes are nowhere near the power and intensity of their American relatives but can still cause structural damage and consternation. The exposed and largely flat EastAnglia is Ground Zero, though they can occur anywhere if the conditions are right. One tornado, which began as a waterspout in the North Sea but came inland, is blamed for having caused an otherwise inexplicable [[FlyingSeafoodSpecial rain of fish]] over the coastal town of Cromer, Norfolk.

* A tornado that [[MillionToOneChance blew through Salt Lake City]] happened during the lunch hour news broadcasts. One reporter called the news studio while only [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8HgzXzZQgc a couple of blocks away from the funnel.]] The effects of the tornado can be heard in the audio, despite the reporter's distance from the funnel. In typical tornado fashion, damage was strangely haphazard-an exposition was being held in two enormous tents set up next to one another. The tornado destroyed one (killing a man) and left the other virtually untouched-neither were hit directly by the funnel, however.

* Tornados are one of the most common forms of attacks used by ''ComicBook/TheFlash'' foe, the Weather Wizard. They are generally shown emerging from the tip of his wand and things are only effected when they are hit by the funnel cloud. The Wizard even uses tornados to fly.

* Averted in ''Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries'' - the two two-part episodes that feature tornadoes ("The Black Turning Funnel" and "The Falling Sky") display them relatively realistically.

* As it turns out, Disney/{{Hercules}} ''can'' touch the funnel cloud--which he uses to suck up the rest of the Titans before hurling them into space, where they [[StuffBlowingUp explode]].

* In ''Film/X2XMenUnited'', {{Storm}} calls down several tornadoes to get rid of some pesky jetfighters trailing the Blackbird. The scene is very cool to watch, until you realize that there's no way the Blackbird itself could have gotten away and [[InferredHolocaust Storm probably laid waste to the entire New York countryside in the process]].
