** The Gaia Colossus does one of these after the final battle in ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'', but [[JustifiedTrope it is justified]] in that Sonic's fall is decelerated before impact.

* Happened at least twice during ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'', the first time to a girl, the second time to Bulk and Skull who were in a bus. Interestingly, there are actually two "Megazord hands" used in the series. Normally it's metal, but it was a black glove in the scenes when someone needed to not smack into solid steel after falling a few hundred feet. Apparently, the viewer was expected to not notice. Even as kids, everyone did.

* The third issue of the ''{{Franchise/Bionicle}}'' comics had Onua save Tahu from a fall this way. Possibly justified by the fact that ''both'' participants are MechanicalLifeforms.

*** ''Anime/MacrossDoYouRememberLove'' version of this scene also has Hikaru catching a falling Minmei with the hands of his Valkyrie after matching velocity, and great care is put into the animation of how the Valkyrie's hand closes around her ''very very gently'' before starting to slow down. But because he didn't have ''that'' much room to slow down, and was forced to waste a lot of it matching speeds in the first place, Hikaru then proceeds to crash at terminal velocity into an abandoned portion of the ''Macross''.

* Super Dimensional Fortress ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' and ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'' which its based from both have a version of this, with a giant VF-1 Valkyrie hand taking hold of a girl to 'catch' her while the pilot tried to match her fall. The hand gets blown off and he has to get her into the cockpit from it as well.
** The ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'' novelizations make a point of describing just how insane the maneuver was and the difficulty of matching her velocity and maneuvering in relation to her in free-fall.

** While show tends to play mech tropes straight, this trope is averted when the protagonist actually gets out of his mech to catch the girl in his arms.

* Worth mentioning that this is averted in ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', which is strange because it tends to play mech tropes straight. The protagonist actually gets out of his mech to catch the girl in his arms.
** They use a HumongousMecha hand to catch a... [[HumongousMecha slightly more reasonable sized mecha]]. Does that count?
** There actually is an instance. Yoko falls out of the Gurren's cockpit while it's flying, and Simon pilots the thing to catch her. Then it gets knocked into the AirborneAircraftCarrier...but it's still averted in that he flies down to catch her and matches speeds. She's also shown to be injured slightly from the impact afterwards.
