* Exaggerated in ''WesternAnimation/VoltronLegendaryDefender''. Hunk pulls this trick in order to get a Galra fighter off his tail in battle... but because the Yellow Lion is a MightyGlacier, instead of letting the fighter pass him, braking only causes the fighter to crash headlong into him and explode.
--> '''Lance:''' Hunk, you got a fighter right on your six!
--> '''Hunk:''' Yeah, and I'm about to teach this sentry a lesson about tailgating!

* In ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'', Nick Fury pulls this off in a car chase by luring his pursuers into boxing him in from the sides, then braking right before an intersection, resulting in them getting plowed into by a box rental truck.



* Lampshaded in the ''StarWars: Literature/XWingSeries''. A fake recruit in training ([[spoiler:as part of a sting operation against an officer who's faking crashes and selling fighters on the black market]]), is in the simulator with other members of her squadron. Her mission is to deliberately be an average student, in order to entrap a villainous instructor into artificially improving her scores. So she takes the lead from her less experienced but determined wingmate during the simulated mission. While being chased by two TIE fighters, she pulls one of these. It doesn't work. After the sim, her commander notes something to the effect of, "you were trying to slow down, in open airspace, while being chased by two more experienced pilots in more maneuverable craft? WhatWereYouThinking"

*** This is a classic scissors manuver for a two-plane element. Stackpole indulged in a little ShownTheirWork in the first book of which this is part.

* Arguably ''the'' tactic in AceOnline, although the choices are, like in their real life counterpart, numerous. [[WronskiFeint Should you lure your enemy into terrain?]] Use (or abuse) the Back Move Mach/Turn Around function to engage the enemy? Or use an innate ability to basically keep yourself alive longer than your opponents? The choice is endless.

Added DiffLines:

* In the opening of ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'', Stitch skips the "dodge" part: he simply flips his cruiser over 180 degrees so his FixedForwardFacingWeapon is pointed at his pursuers, and his engines accelerate him straight towards them.

Added DiffLines:

* Unorthodox manoeuvres, such as skidding (sideways slide by inserting stick to one direction and adding opposite pedal) or snap rolls (controlled spin along the longitudinal axis by applying the stick and pedal diagonally opposite) ''are'' this trope.

* Kudo Shin from ''Anime/MacrossZero'' does the Pugachev Cobra maneuver. Unfortunately, the enemy knows what he's up to and nothing short of abusing the VF's innate ability to change forms did Shin able to get a shot in.
** The 'braking' version is actually a fairly common AcePilot trick in the entire Anime/{{Macross}} franchise. It helps when you can change into GERWALK mode in mid flight and actually have your main engines point forward for a few seconds.
** Alto Saotome's attempt to do it to kill Brera in ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' fails when Brera dodges his attack. [[InvokedTrope And Alto was so certain it'd work too]].

* In the ''BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand'' episode "Inside Job", Buzz uses this twice as it is his [[ChekhovsSkill Chekhov's Maneuver]] for the episode. He referred to it as "Stop, Drop, Rock and Roll!".
* ''SamuraiJack'': Episode XIX "Jack Remembers the Past". Jack is being pursued by bounty hunters riding on giant hornets. Jack has his own hornet stop and draws his sword and cuts off his opponent's head as they fly past.

* Early in ''TransformersCybertron'', Thundercracker pulls this on Optimus Prime. Unfortunately for 'Cracker, when the [[SmokeShield smoke clears]] [[TheWorfBarrage it turns out to have done no damage]], and Optimus kicks off the running gag of [[ButtMonkey Thundercracker]] being [[AmusingInjuries injured for our amusement]] by blowing up the poor Decepticon's own missiles in his face.
