* 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 [[ViewersAreMorons was expected to not notice]]. Even as kids, everyone did.

* ''Film/HellboyII''. Okay, he's not a robot, but the principle is still the same; Hellboy throws a baby in the air and catches it with his hand. You know, the one that's made of solid rock. And not just a few feet, either, we're talking a good three to five meters, enough to wind up the firing mechanism on his custom {{BFG}}. [[LampshadeHanging The public calls him out for being reckless with the baby once he's dispatched the monster.]]

* Though not a robot, the Hulk does this in ''Film/TheAvengers'' for [[spoiler: Iron Man. This one is actually justified as he has survived some high impact collisions in that suit. If a jet hitting it didn't kill him being caught by The Hulk wouldn't either]].

** Done slightly more realistically in the third one. Bumblebee flips through the air and grabs Sam and Lennox, and then continue to flip through the air until he lands. Only then does he let them go.
