* In ''[[Literature/{{Safehold}} Off Armageddon Reef]]'', by Creator/DavidWeber, [[BadAss Merlin]] engaged in one of these near the end of the book. Merlin is an incredibly advanced android with strength, speed, and reflexes far above human capacity; he is equipped with nanoengineered nigh-unbreakable incredibly sharp [[KatanasAreJustBetter katanas]]. (Well, technically, a katana and a wakizashi.) [[CurbStompBattle His foes are sailors equipped with metal armor, swords, spears, axes, and primitive muskets]]. To quote the book: "he went through his enemies like an avalanche, more hampered by their corpses than by their weapons."

* ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'':
** During the final mission, Nanoha flew towards the Throne Room of the [[KillSat Saint's Cradle]] at full speed while destroying any [[MechaMooks Gadget Drone]] that tried to block her path, and only briefly stopping to one-shot a member of the QuirkyMinibossSquad who had the unfortunate job of defending the path to said room. [[MamaBear Kidnapping Nanoha's adopted daughter and using her to power the]] WeaponOfMassDestruction was a really bad idea.

* Luffy from ''OnePiece'' does this often. Most notably when he charges through ''5000 people'' to get to [=CP9=]. Later, he tries this when trying to save [[spoiler:his brother Ace from execution]], along with several other pirates, including all of [[spoiler:Whitebeard]]'s crew. However, it doesn't work so well when some of the foes he's trying to toss are Vice-Admirals and the Shichibukai. Whitebeard has more luck with it, though.

** Much later in the TournamentArc, Luffy and Don Chinjiao (who has a grudge against Luffy's grandfather and considers Luffy a fantastic target for his [[RevengeByProxy revenge]]), charge against one another -- casually knocking away two other powerful combatants on their way, who were locked in battle and considered as tournament favourites by this point.

* Makes an appearance during the wedding scene in the first ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' movie. The eponymous ogre and Fiona find themselves beset by Mooks; Shrek starts 'wading' through them, throwing them off as necessary. They manage to slow him, but we never get to find out the ending thanks to a GunshipRescue moment.

May elicit OhCrap or BringItOn from the target, depending on their degree of {{Badass}}. Very frequently a characteristic of TheJuggernaut. If the people in the way aren't even ''trying'' to resist, you're probably looking at TheDreaded.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/StarcraftIIHeartOfTheSwarm'': In ''Supreme'', one of the bosses Kerrigan faces off against has a charge move that will toss any enemy caught in it to the side.

Added DiffLines:

* Reinhardt from ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' is a MightyGlacier with a melee primary weapon in an FPS game. But he has ''Charge'' ability, where he propels forward with a rocket on the back of his PoweredArmor. It only allows for a straight charge with very little horizontal movement, but it's quick enough to help him get to the frontline faster, and most dangerously, will pin and carry any enemy hit along for the ride. If Reinhardt hits a wall with the enemy in tow, it deals 300 damage, enough to kill any non-tank in one hit.

* Grendel does this in the 2007 film version of ''Film/{{Beowulf|2007}}''. He also throws people at people, [[GrievousHarmWithABody and hits people with people as melee weapons]], and tears them apart with his bare hands. It's not really to get to anyone in particular, though, he's mostly just complaining about the noise coming from his neighbors.

* The opening cinematic of ''{{Drakengard}}'' shows Caim doing this to a group of enemy soldiers and then flashing his SlasherSmile. The player can also do several attacks in the game that qualify as Foe-Tossing Charges.

Added DiffLines:

*** Poppy ''also'' has a field she can project around her that stops dashes (if if not something that makes the target immune to CC, like many ults), so she's quite good at ''foiling'' a FoeTossingCharge from the enemy team as well.


Added DiffLines:

** Jarvan IV utilizes a combo where he throws out a flag, hooks it with his spear, and drags himself to it. Any enemy between him and his spear is sent flying into the air. As an added bonus, the combo is considered self-inflicted crowd control, rather than a dash like most other movement abilities, which means it cannot be stopped by snares or roots once it starts, which is the usual response to dashes.

* This happens a number of times on the football field in ''{{Eyeshield 21}}''. It's Gaou's way of playing offense. His team runs a game where the players follow Gaou as he runs over and through anyone who gets in his way. [[WorthyOpponent Until he meets Kurita.]]
