** 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.
