* ''VideoGame/{{Bug}}'': The titular character's primary attack was to jump on enemies with his [[BewareMyStingerTail stinger tail]]. Notably, Bug had to be either actively jumping or spinning off a springboard in order to deal damage, if Bug fell off an edge (without his stinger ready), he would take damage if he landed on an enemy.

No matter how much CollisionDamage they can dish out, the enemies in almost any PlatformGame seem to be vulnerable to people jumping on top of them and cannot inflict damage when touched there. It's effective against any creature in the game, except for [[TheSpiny that one foe with spikes on its head that has to be defeated in another manner]]. And if you can land that hit, you can probably use them as a GoombaSpringboard. {{Mario}} was the pioneer, and then [[FollowTheLeader all other]] platformers [[IncrediblyLamePun jumped on]] the bandwagon.

** ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld's'' introduced a variation of the Goombas called Galoombas [[note]]initially, they were mistaken for Goombas, though a different Japanese name hinted that they might be a separate enemy altogether. This was eventually confirmed in [[VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld Super Mario 3D World]], which includes both enemies.[[/note]], which are not killed with a regular jump. Instead, they become temporarily dazed and can be used as a thrown weapon against other creatures. A spin-jump will kill them outright, however. Note that they never tried ''that'' again with Goombas in Mario.

* In ''FanFic/ThisBites'', Cross pulls this on the Unluckies when they go after him in Jaya. Soundbite even [[LampshadeHanging Lampshades]] it by playing the SuperMarioBros music.

->'''SelfDemonstrating/CrankyKong:''' You kids have it easy! When I was your age, jumping on top of monsters was a surefire way to get yourself killed! Your only options were to grab some weapon or just get out of the way. Monsters are far too squishy nowadays!

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/BodyBlows'': One of the characters, Yit-U, can do this as one of his methods of attack. In the event an opponent is close enough when he launches himself into the air at the start of the attack, it can also double as an upper cut punch.

* In ''{{Pikmin}}'', if you throw a Pikmin directly on top of any Dwarf Bulborb or Dwarf Bulbear, it instantly kills them. Very useful even though they don't pose much of a threat.

* ''VideoGame/CommanderKeen IV'' has one enemy that can be defeated by jumping on it, but only when using the pogo stick. The first installment in the series included Yorps, which could be knocked out (though not killed) by jumping on them. In the GameBoyColor version, most aliens become vulnerable to this after shooting them.

* Cliff in ''VideoGame/StarOceanTillTheEndOfTime'' has the Aerial Assault move. It's one of his strongest single-hit attacks, capable of inflicting a OneHitKill against even some of the extremely tough end-game enemies in an ambush.

** In the ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' series, Mario can use a multitude of different jumps that can inflict StandardStatusEffects. They also benefit more from attack boosting effects then his hammer due to their usually multi-hitting nature, making them the preferred method of attack against anything that doesn't have high defense. Ironically enough, Goombas in that series, both friendly and hostile, ''use'' Goomba Stomp as their basic means of attack.
