* ''Series/SesameStreet'': A common staple in comedy skits. One such example came from the 1970s, when two AbbottAndCostello-esque men (Emilio Delgado and Bob [=McGrath=]) loaded a box on a table with heavy objects, each one [[TemptingFate which could cause the table to collapse and everything to fall onto the floor]]. By the miraculousness of all miracles, the box is filled to capacity ... and despite the enormous weight of everything, the table on which it sits has not collapsed. Then, they find a feather and place it in the box ... and then the trope kicks in.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' episode "Day of the Samurai" Batman travels to Japan to prevent Kyoudai Ken from learning a secret martial art where a person can kill with one blow. Said technique is the o-nemo-ri touch, where the martial artist pokes someone in the chest and kills them instantly. Batman only survives the encounter by studying Kyoudai's practice dummy, finding the spot that has been poked repeatedly, and adding an armor plate beneath his suit.

* The original ''VideoGame/DestroyAllHumans'' has many instances of this. Most infamously is the Psychokinesis ability, which has the power to kill a human in even the slightest nudge with it. Sometimes, the pedestrian may '''[[EpicFail kill themselves trying to get back up]].''' The developers may have known about this and patched it in the second game, although this leads to the pedestrians [[MadeOfIron being practically immune to falling from large heights]].
