* ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk''" Does it almost flawlessly, [[AdventurerArchaeologist Indy]] is trapped in a AncientTomb while ThoseWackyNazis are making off with the Arc of the Convenient and they decided to drop Indy's OldFlame Marion on top him. Creepy Nazi Toht pushes Marion into the tomb, Marion manages to catch a nearby Anubis statue to stop her fall but the statue cracks and she falls again but this time from a shorter height. Indy catches her in his arms making a iconic image, but Marion is still angry at Indy for leaving her behind earlier in the movie and struggles out of his hold. Then Marion notices the [[SnakePit snakes that are everywhere]], and promptly climbs up onto his shoulder much to Indy's annoyance.

* ToyStory3 with : Buzz and Jessie, and then Jessie complete with SlowMotion romantic run.



* ''VideoGame/ShovelKnight'': Nearly every time Shovel Knight falls asleep at a campsite, he has a [[NightmareSequence nightmare]] about his girlfriend Shield Knight plummeting towards the ground, where the dire prompt '''Catch Her''' will flash up while hordes of enemies will try and stop the knight and if the player lets her drop he will fail immediately making it one of the poignant mini games ever.

** In the Dressrosa Arc RidiculouslyCuteCritter Leo the fighting Dwarf does this with Dwarf Princess Mansherry (they're more like pixies really). Mansherry has a strong crush on Leo, and much to the princess's delight Leo saves her and catches her in his tiny arms, but Leo then claims she's gotten heavier getting her angry. In fact Leo is oblivious to fact she has feelings for him and gets angry when she asks for him to carry her away (thinking she's being selfish) the other Dwarves force him to do it and Leo reluctantly piggybacks her to safety with Princess snuggling against his back.

** ChefOfIron Sanji adores this trope, he does it most frequently with GoldDigger Nami. First time was in the anime when the crew was traveling upwards To FloatingContinent Skypeia, all the weaker crewmates need to be grabbed before they fly away. Robin catches Chopper, Zoro keeps Usopp down with his foot and Sanji catches Nami his arms, Sanji is overjoyed but Nami is too focused on the the travel upwards to notice.
** Sanji does it again with Nami in Thriller Bark when she's unconscious and at the mercy of creepy InvisibleJerkass Absalom, who drugged her so she wouldn't complain when he kisses and marries her (AndNowYouMustMarryMe). Sanji bursts in true to fashion wrecking the zombie holding Nami, and as Nami falling to the ground he catches her with one arm and apologises for keeping her waiting. Sanji later takes it UpToEleven when he hoists Nami above his head and lets Absalom wail on him, Sanji only drops Nami so he doesn't get his blood on her "beautiful" wedding dress.
** Sanji also catches Nami in the first trailer for VideoGame/OnePiecePirateWarriors.

Because Falling into His Arms is so romantic, it can be easily parodied by having a ''man'' fall into a man's arms, for a bit of comedic HoYay. That can also be combined with one of the standard subversions.
