* MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic fanfic [[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/62858/martial-bliss Martial Bliss]] is about Shining Armor being taught the art of using one's wife as a projectile weapon by his inebriated former drill sergeant. While he finds the whole situation absurd, he feels some strange pull of fate, as if this is [[CallForward going to be important for some reason]]...

** A variation of this is iconic for ComicBook/AntMan and {{ComicBook/Hawkeye}} every time they team-up in ''ComicBook/TheAvengers'': Ant-Man hitches a ride on the tip of Hawkeye's arrow and then thrown to the target. Used for the first time on ''Avengers #223'' to disarm a bomb thrown by {{Comicbook/Taskmaster}}.

* ''TabletopGame/BloodBowl'', a ''Warhammer'' spin-off fantasy football game, included this as a pair of abilities (one for the thrower and one for the throwee, usually a goblin or halfling). Unfortunately, all creatures capable of doing the throw tend to suffer from drawbacks, such as [[DumbMuscle rank stupidity]] and/or [[BigEater insatiable hunger]], and are liable to instead decide to take root, stand around looking glassy-eyed, or in some extreme cases ''eating the throwee''.
** While the manuever is very risky, when it works, it REALLY works. This troper has personally executed a play in which a troll grabbed his goblin friend and tossed him perfectly into the elven ballcarrier. As soon as the little guy hit, the ball careened into the open field, where a blitzer orc grabbed it and ran it in for a very satisfying touchdown.

** During the "X-Dudes" side story of ''To Serve And Protect'', Rockslide does this with Anole, even calling it by name. Without asking (or even ''warning'') Anole first. Suffice to say, Victor wasn't exactly happy with him afterwards.
