** There's a variation in this in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Gaiden'': Kyosuke saves Lamia from the Bartolls by plugging her directly out of the cockpit, which only worked out because Lamia is an [[ArtificialHuman android]]... but then {{Deconstructed}} because just because someone is in a robot's hand doesn't mean the person is completely safe, as she ends up getting shot down and thought to be killed only to come back later BrainwashedAndCrazy. And then it's Axel's turn to repeat the same to restore her for real, and he has better luck because there's no one hiding in the shadow trying to shoot his hand down when he's not expecting.

* Subverted by the giant robot on the album cover of Music/NewsOfTheWorld by Music/{{Queen}}, who accidentally killed the band members.
** The cover was done by artist FrankKellyFreas, based on one he did for ''AstoundingScienceFiction''.

** 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''.
