* In [[{{Peanuts}} It's Your First Kiss, Charlie Brown]] during the Homecoming Game every down where CB's team has the ball ends up in a big pileup, usually with Charlie on the bottom. Including when he attempts to kick the ball, misses because Lucy pulls it away, and then they jump on him. This would be a roughing the kicker penalty at minimum if Charlie weren't such a ButtMonkey.

* Set up magnificently in ''Film/NowYouSeeMe'' during Act II of the Four Horsemen's tour. As part of the act, several volunteer audience members are hypnotized to attack the "Quarterback" when they hear the [[TriggerPhrase Trigger Word]] "Freeze". They return to their seats and the show goes on. However, when the Horsemen conclude their performance by [[spoiler:[[JustLikeRobinHood publicly robbing their millionaire patron]]]], [[InspectorJavert Agent Rhodes]] moves in to apprehend them. Being a law enforcement officer in pursuit of fleeing suspects, he naturally yells, "Freeze!" Cue one dogpiled cop and four escaping Horsemen. [[spoiler:Hilariously, TheReveal that Rhodes himself is none other than the Horsemen's ManBehindTheMan implies that he willingly sprung that trap on himself.]]

Type A: The hero activates a super mode, has an epiphany, or otherwise becomes more BadAss. He explodes out of the pile, minions scattering to the four winds, and rises as an epic figure. At this point the fight might continue, or the mooks might run away.

* On an episode of WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic, a doll gets turned into an AppleOfDiscord [[labelnote:*]]Not related to the villain played by [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Q]][[/labelnote]]. Big Macintosh has it, and he gets dogpiled by nearly every background pony. [[BadAss Type A then occurs]] as Big Macintosh ''literally'' sends them flying over the horizon after it's taken by the Mayor. In fact, it doesn't even really work in the first place; Big Mac is clearly standing on the bottom half of the dogpile, and the top half can only cover him up to his neck.

* Mooks have attempted this trope on Zoro of ''Manga/OnePiece''...with little success. In fact, Zoro's first display of {{Badass}} was to block a dogpile of Marines -- all armed with swords -- with his Santoryu.

* We get a big one in ''ComicBook/TheMightyThor'', in which Thor and ComicBook/CaptainAmerica are under assault. Thor is separated from Mjolnir, and as Cap tries to get to it, he's dogpiled by a bunch of Grog's mooks. Unfortunately for said mooks, the Captain just happens to be worthy, resulting in a Type A outcome, followed shortly by a CurbstompBattle.
