* ''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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[VideoGame/AnnoDomini Anno 2070]]'s Deep Ocean'' expansion pack introduces tsunamis as a natural disaster that occurs when a geothermic power plant collapses into its deep sea trench. The wave expands circularly from the late plant, destroys all ships at or near the coast and can reach quite far inland on any island it hits, demolishing any building that happens to be in its path. Affected areas can't be rebuilt until the water has receded, and the only real defense against these tsunamis consists of high mountains between the power plant's location and the surrounding settlements - which is something the player has very little influence on.
