** 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.

* ''VideoGame/Titanfall2'' has BT, Jack's Titan, pick him up and throw him great distances at several points in the campaign. Pilot Jump Kits have the necessary equipment to allow a Pilot to survive such throws, and BT proves to have ''excellent'' aim. Later in the game it's suggested that this is a common maneuver among Titan Pilots, with other characters referring to it as "a fastball".

* In ''VideoGame/MarvelPuzzleQuest'', the 3-star Colossus has the Fastball Special as one of his special moves. You choose one of his teammates and throws them, rendering them temporarily invincible from damage for a few turns. On the final turn, they'll come back down and not only damage them for a set amount of damage, but also fire off one of the thrown's abilities at no cost. Of course, this is a very risky move - the attack delivers minor damage to the thrown character and the character's ability is chosen at random, which can only be Team-Up-aquireable abilities. For example, a player could throw the 3-star Black Panther and could either fire off the painfully damaging Rage of the Panther (which heavily damages all opponents), Defense Grid (which triggers a countdown block which spawns a defense block every time the countdown finishes and resets) or Battleplan (which just creates attack-increasing Yellow Strike Tiles)
