** Guts. In the early days of the Band of the Hawk Griffith gave Guts his own cavalry unit, the whole point of which was to smash through enemy lines and scatter them for the rest of the army. Later on, when confronting an especially powerful EliteMook named Gen. Bascon, Guts and the general perform a foe-tossing charge ''at each other!'' When they meet, soldiers on both sides keep well clear for fear of being caught in the middle of the two monsters. Eventually when he upgrades to an even bigger BFS, he does this to ''real'' monsters, and with the Berserker armor, even to full-fledged ''Apostles!''

* After Wrestling/KevinSteen's successful title defense against Wrestling/{{Rh|yno}}ino at ''[[Wrestling/RingOfHonor Death Before Dishonor X]]'', which had seen Wrestling/RoderickStrong, Steve Corino ''and'' Wrestling/JimmyJacobs run interference on his behalf, Michael Elgin emerged to make his intentions to challenge Steen known and ended up running through all three of them, though they ''did'' hold Elgin off long enough for Steen to get away.
* During the WCW/ECW Invasion storyline, Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin had undergone a FaceHeelTurn and become a paranoid lunatic needing reassurance and hugs from Wrestling/VinceMcMahon, despite [=McMahon=]'s efforts to get "the old Stone Cold" back to fight off the invaders. Finally, the week before the Invasion PPV, it seemed to finally work, as Austin stormed from a bar where [[AchillesInHisTent he'd been ignoring the invasion]], drove to the arena, and whupped the ass of every WCW or ECW person he saw on his way to the ring, where he [[HesBack handed out Stunners left and right.]][[/folder]]

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

** A bit previous to this, the centaur general Oreius and a ''talking rhino'' charge the White Witch's polar-bear-drawn chariot, mowing down her right-hand minotaur in the process, in order to protect Peter. And it's awesome.

** A bit previous to this, the centaur general Oreius and a ''talking rhino'' charge the White Witch's polar-bear-drawn chariot, mowing down her right-hand minotaur in the process, in order to protect Peter. And it's awesome. Unusually for this trope, the rhino doesn't make it to his goal and is killed halfway.



** Near the end of the Helm's Deep battle the few remaining Rohirrim pressed in the inner sanctum of the keep decide to go with a boom and charge into the Uruk-Hai army in a suicide attack trampling and tossing aside everybody in their way. [[spoiler:The attack turns out not to be so suicidal after all]].

** Near the end of the Helm's Deep battle the few remaining Rohirrim pressed in the inner sanctum of the keep decide to go with a boom and charge into the Uruk-Hai army in a suicide attack trampling and tossing aside everybody in their way. It helps that the soldiers are on a narrow ramp and pressed tightly together, so the force of the horses and riders charging into the front of the column knocks a great many of the Uruk-Hai off the edge. [[spoiler:The attack turns out not to be so suicidal after all]].

* 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.
