In the Second Era, there is also a little girl standing on barrels that will be send flying up into the clouds if Hype shoots the barrels with his crossbow. She gets back on Earth only during the ''Fourth Era'' (which takes place approximatively ''one entire century later'').

* The game ''DeadToRights'', there's a cutscene after a mini-boss battle with a couple assassins where Jack tries to catch a plane and ends up using the explosion caused by shooting a pursuing foe's motorcycle to propel him into the plane's open cargo bay. It is just as epic, and ridiculous, as it sounds.

* The ''{{Metroid}}'' series features the Morph Ball Bombs, and ExplosionPropulsion is arguably their primary function. Most of them that you'll ever use will be to send Samus airborne while she's in Morph Ball form.
