* The video for DuranDuran's ''Hungry Like The Wolf'' has the lead singer flip over a table in a restaurant. This is due mostly to sexual urges than anger, however.

* The end result of ''Fanfic/OldManHenderson'' was one of these. Having gotten really fed up with a KillerGameMaster, a roleplayer by the name of Waffle House Millionaire created the character of Old Man Henderson, a CrazyAwesome {{Munchkin}} [[TheLoonie Loonie]] whose sole purpose in life was to [[OffTheRails completely derail the campaign]]. Aided with the [[ExpansionPackPast Backstory]] [[DoomyDoomsOfDoom Of Doom]], the sole purpose of which was to be so long and confusing that the DM wouldn't read it, Waffle House Millionaire ended up "winning at ''TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu''." Cue the table flip from the killer GM after finally having gotten what was coming to him.

** ''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures'': If Destania's reaction [[spoiler: to finding out that the Blunt Object Brigade ''didn't'' kill Abel]] is any indication, creatures like demons and cubi are capable of not just flipping tables, but ''solid oak tables'' at that.

* Done in ''Webcomic/{{Consolers}}'', when Nintendo makes Rare turn Dinosaur Planet into a Star Fox game. Unlike most other examples here it's not done out of rage, but rather as a reference to "Miyamoto upending the table" mentioned above

** Done later with Taito flipping her work desk in rage after Square Enix gives her too much work - the desk breaks open the door and hits Square Enix.
