* ''Literature/ThePoseidonAdventure'', about an ocean liner that capsizes after being hit by one of these. The author, Paul Gallico, was inspired by his own real-life experience of being aboard the ''Queen Mary'' when she was hit by a rogue wave in 1942 and nearly turned over.

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/rogue_wave Rogue waves]]. They can be up to 35 m high (yup, that's 115 feet) and they are preceded with a trough so deep and steep as described as "like a hole in the ocean". Their existence was long doubted, but they do exist. A rogue wave is steep and resembles a vertical wall of water, and can sink even an ocean-going ship, nevermind yachts and fishing vessels.

* ''Film/TheImpossible'': Is entirely about this, namely the [[DisasterMovie the tsunami]] that [[BasedOnATrueStory happened]] on [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2004_Indian_Ocean_earthquake_and_tsunami December 26, 2004]].
* ''[[Film/TheLordOfTheRings The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring]]'': Arwen [[ElementalPowers makes]] the [[https://youtu.be/NllOWlaGPx4?t=152 Bruinen river rise]] against the Black Riders with an incantation to splash them away; for added awesomeness, the waves are shaped into horses. The Black Riders have an OhCrap and try to run away from it, to no avail. In this case it's actually a "Giant Wall Of Watery Salvation" to the good guys, especially Frodo.
