* In ''VideoGame/{{Dota2}}'', Spirit Breaker's trademark ability is charging through everything and everyone to a target, dealing greater bash to all enemies that get in the way. Notably, Greater bash, unlock all other bashes, actually knocks targets back. Magnus's Skewer is almost a Foe ''Dragging'' Charge, bringing enemy heroes with him as he charges, and nothing can stop his charge, stun him and he continues charging while unconscious, kill him and his corpse continues charging, put him an in alternate dimension and [[GoodBadBugs his glowing horn inexplicably continues charging]].

* In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword]]'', a few turns after your arrival to the Dread Isle you'll meet up with the Pegasus Knight Fiora, who in her pain after having lost her wingmates, tries to perform one of these. If you don't send out her sister Florina to convince her to stop and join the crew, she'll fight your enemies until either she dies or the stage is done.
* In ''VideoGame/GodOfWar III'', Kratos can do this when he grabs an enemy, using their body as a battering ram as he dashes through enemies. After running for a while he'll simply toss the body or if he hits a wall he slams their head around.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Prototype}}'' Alex Mercer usually uses LeParkour while running forward at 70 mph; however, if he activates his armor or shield powers he'll simply run through anything in his way up to the size of a car. Civilians, non EliteMooks, oncoming traffic present no impediment to his forward momentum.

* Reinhardt from ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' is a MightyGlacier with a melee primary weapon in an FPS game. But he has the ''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. Anyone else hit after he pins an enemy gets tossed aside.

* ''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.

* In ''WebVideo/TribeTwelve'' video titled "The Order", after a meeting with said Order, [[spoiler: which had GoneHorriblyWrong]], as Noah and the DarkHarvest guys get in the car Slenderman appears a few feet away from the front of the car. They expect that he will teleport or speed run to the car. He doesn't. Instead he throws (or worse, drops from a great height) a random member of the Order onto the car's front glass. -Insert screaming here-

* Grendel does this in the 2007 film version of ''WesternAnimation/{{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.

** 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.

** For those who played Dawn of War II, ever wonder where the Force Commander's "To Victory" charge attack came from? In the gaiden game "Inquisitor", the big game-breaker character was the Space Marine who can single-handedly slaughter a decked-out party even if he's buck-naked. Complaints about the SM character was made, but Inquisitor writer Andy Chambers actually felt that the SM was could actually use a bit of beefing up (since in-fluff they didn't own any property and relied on hand-outs from their Chapter or allies) so in a ''Magazine/WhiteDwarf'' article he gave them the Shoulder Charge and the Hoist skills from ''TabletopGame/{{Necromunda}}''.

** [[PintSizedPowerhouse Poppy]] has an attack that doesn't so much toss the enemy as carry them straight into a wall, called [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Heroic Charge]]. Part of her core strategy is using this to both close distance with fleeing enemies as well as suprising aggressing ones.

** Then there's Sion, with his Unstoppable Onslaught which is a charge for roughly ''half the map'' in a straightish line , crushing any minion in his path until he reaches a champion, at which point said champion and all nearby other champions are hit extremely hard, and stunned. He usually follows this up with his Decimating Smash. If he lands this, you're stunned for an obscene duration and take a massive ammount of damage (Nearly instant death for squishier champs).

* Elgin's TagTeam partner Wrestling/HiroshiTanahashi did this during the 2016 ''Death Before Dishonor'' after having fought out of Wrestling/TetsuyaNaito and EVIL's double team attempts, eventually tossing ''all four'' four their opponents around at will and herding them into position for an Elgin tope. Kamataichi had to illegally interfere on the behalf of [[Wrestling/ChristopherDaniels The]] [[Wrestling/FrankieKazarian Addiction]] just to slow Tanahashi down, but he did slow Tanahashi down long enough for Christopher Daniels to make a blind tag and steal Tanahashi's pin.
