* Inverted in a different manner in an episode of ''{{Slayers}}''. The gang is clinging to a rope across a chasm, and Filia tells Gourry to not look ''up''. This is because he's holding on to her legs and she's wearing a dress.

* Averted in ''Film/NeedForSpeed''. Early on, Julia is shown to have a severe fear of heights. Later in the movie, when she and Tobey are [[ItMakesSenseInContext in a car dangling from a helicopter a mile in the air]], Tobey calms her down by telling her to look into his eyes and getting her riled up about them. ("They're a lot bluer than yours." "...No, they're not!") He never once says the phrase.

* WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes and HannaBarbera cartoons, which combine ToonPhysics with GravityIsAHarshMistress. The classic case: a cartoon character can run over or stand on thin air untill he realizes something is wrong and looks down. Only then does gravity take over.

* ''Literature/{{Neverwhere}}'': The Marquis de Carabas says this to Richard, who, predictably, doesn't listen. It doesn't help that they're climbing down into the sewers, and Richard doesn't expect to [[AlienGeometries suddenly find himself high up.]]

* One example in DigimonFusion when the fighters get to the forest zone they're teleported there, several hundred feet up in the air. At first they wonder where the zone is (since when they're teleported there there's nothing there at all. Then Mikey decides to look down. He then tells the one person in their party with a height phobia how his fear of heights is doing then tells him this trope's name. Cue GravityIsAHarshMistress.
