* In ''Comicbook/ActionComics Vol 1'' #285, Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} fights a gigantic creature who is so large, all one can see are it's legs tromping across the land. At one point, the monster's right foot tramples on Kara.

* ''Comicbook/SupermanVsTheAmazingSpiderMan'': Subverted when Comicbook/LexLuthor's HumongousMecha stomps on Franchise/{{Superman}}, and Supes thinks the robot is trying to crush him until it walks away and Superman realizes its stomp wasn't meant as an attack.

[[StockShoutOuts Many western uses of this]] are [[ShoutOut Shout Outs]] to the one from the animated segments of ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' and are not meant as serious. This is because western audiences often find the idea of a giant foot coming down rather silly. In eastern works, however, this trope is less likely to be used in humor and instead takes a more horrific or BadAss tone, due to a giant foot that crashes through the roof being an ominous {{yokai}} or a ShoutOut to Franchise/{{Godzilla}} and other {{Kaiju}} fiction.

When the giant foot of doom is used to show something is BadAss, it's TrampledUnderfoot. In many combat games it can become a FinishingStomp. When the foot is your primary weapon it becomes a GoombaStomp.

* [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Voltaire]] does this in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers''. Three Gadget Drones are shown floating around and shooting at random stuff, then squish!
* ''Anime/ParanoiaAgent'' has this in episode 5.
* Luffy of ''Manga/OnePiece'' can do this via his Gear Third ability, though he's only used it in an attempt to stomp someone once, in his fight against Rob Lucci.
** In Chapter 635, Nico Robin shows off a new skill where [[http://i997.mangareader.net/one-piece/635/one-piece-2570963.jpg she creates giant legs]] [[http://i998.mangareader.net/one-piece/635/one-piece-2570965.jpg which then proceed to stomp on her enemies]].

* [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Voltaire]] The Female Titan from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' does this to a few people, [[spoiler:including TeamMom Petra Ral]]. It's not in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers''. Three Gadget Drones are shown floating around and shooting at random stuff, then squish!

''Anime/BlueCometSPTLayzner''.



* Not sure if this counts, but if you look closely at the beginning of Asuka's fight in ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion End of Evangelion]]'', an unfortunate [[{{Mooks}} JSSFD soldier]] gets crushed under the foot of a descending Mass Produced EVA, and the shot is framed in this way.
* ''Manga/KeroroGunsou'': In the episode where the cast enters a comedy contest, Keroro wants Natsumi to enter it for him to win some knockoff Gunpla. In his usual visualized fantasy he imagines the Gunpla finally being his, only to have it stomped under Natsumi's foot.
* Happens in ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'', [[spoiler:though in this case it's more like Giant Lingerie-Clad Legs of Stomping.]] Even stranger is Panty's reaction to it.
-->'''Panty:''' [[spoiler:Mom?! Is that you?]]
* In ''Anime/TransformersEnergon'', Shockblast is crushed by [[HijackingCthulhu the Megatron-controlled Unicron]], and later, an [[MakeMyMonsterGrow enlarged Galvatron]] does the same to Sixshot. This was also planned to happen to Shockwave in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersTheMovie'', but the scene got cut short.
* The Female Titan from Manga/AttackOnTitan does this to a few people, [[spoiler: including TeamMom Petra Ral]]. It's not in the least bit comical.
* The finale of the ''Bakeneko'' arc of ''Anime/{{Mononoke}}'' takes place in a red void rimmed with eyes, and a giant, clawed foot appears from each end of the tunnel to try and crush the Medicine Seller between them. Fortunately, he just fulfilled the last requirement for his SuperMode, and the ensuing wall of golden talismans protect him.
* In the first episode of ''Anime/MazinkaiserSKL'', the titular mecha does this to an enemy pilot.



* The hilariously UndignifiedDeath of [[spoiler: Gosterro]] in Anime/BlueCometSPTLayzner.
* Subverted in [[Anime/{{Iczer}} Fight! Iczer One]]. [[spoiler: Nagisa's little friend Sayoko gets stomped by Iczer-2's mecha, but she survives thanks to an amulet that Nagisa had given her]]
