* ''VideoGame/BioShock2'' had a non-interactive example in its intro cutscene: When your Little Sister (Eleanor) strays and gets caught by some ruffians who happen to be on the floor below you, your opening move is to leap over the railing directly onto one of them.

* [[LivingStatue Stone Boy]] of [[ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}} the Legion Auxiliary]] does a variant of this. All legionnaires have rings that allow them to levitate, and his usual means of fighting is to deactivate the ring immediately above his foe's head. Given how much he weighs, it's quite effective.

** Enemies from the NES era the GoombaStomp works on: [[TheGoomba Goombas and all variants thereof save for Micro-Goombas]], Koopas (but not their shell), Bullet Bills, Missile Bills, Lakitu (if he's not throwing a spiny egg, and he will be), flying Cheep-Cheeps, flying Bloopers (in ''[[VideoGame/SuperMarioBrosTheLostLevels The Lost Levels]]''), Hammer Bros. (if they aren't throwing a hammer), Boomerang Bros. (if they aren't throwing a boomerang), Fire Bros., Sledge Bros. (if they aren't throwing a hammer), Koopalings (if they aren't firing, requires three hits), Flame Chomps, Rocky Wrenches, and Boom-Boom (requires three hits). Goomba Stomps also allow you to redirect Lemmy's [[HaveAGayOldTime balls]]. It doesn't work on Spinies and Piranha Plants unless, that is, you were in World 5-3 of ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'', where Kuribo's Shoe would let you stomp Piranha Plants and Spinies.

*** Super Mario World also brought a subversion. Traditionally, Koopas were vulnerable to the GoombaStomp, but could only be truly defeated by kicking their shells away, and would otherwise regenerate (video game logic would suggest that, as turtles, they're merely hiding in their shells). However in Super Mario World, attempting to Goomba Stomp the Koopas only sent an underwear clad Koopa shooting out of his shell, who would then be vulnerable to a TRUE Goomba Stomp. Interestingly, Yoshi can Stomp just about anything in Mario World (equivalent to a spin jump, and he can bounce off of Piranha Plants and some other creatures), but in the prequel ''VideoGame/YoshisIsland'', he is vulnerable to the Piranha Plants and Bob-ombs (though that may be because [[FridgeBrilliance getting hit knocks Baby Mario off of Yoshi's back]] rather than doing lasting damage to the dinosaur).

** The ''VideoGame/WarioLand'' series doesn't let you outright kill most enemies simply with the GoombaStomp, but it at least stuns them temporarily and allows them to be beaten up or thrown at other obstacles. Except a few enemies in the first game and later which can be dispatched with the attack.

* The early levels of ''VideoGame/TheLionKing''. Justifiable, since it could be pouncing and five of lions' six extremities are pointy and can conceivably kill things they jump on, but it still doesn't explain how a cub can take down a hyena that's like twice his size, or why Simba can no longer GoombaStomp as an adult when he's heavier and pointier.

** You can even ''improve'' your Goomba Stomping ability by evolving forms who are heavier and/or who can jump higher. Quite a few upgrades have the GoombaStomp in mind.

* The basic enemies in ''VideoGame/{{Braid}}'' are Goomba analogues, which are defeated predictably, and provide Tim with a [[GoombaSpringboard boosted jump]] after he bounces off their heads. In a partial inversion, the goombas also get a boosted jump if they land on Tim's head, which is used in a few puzzles where the goomba can carry on after Tim dies from the stomp and rewinds time to resurrect himself. Enemies can also inadvertently GoombaStomp each other. Easier to see with the rabbit-plant enemies, since they actually jump in order to attack.

* Player characters in ''LegacyOfTheWizard'' normally deal damage using ranged attacks that consume magic, but equipping the Powered Boots lets a character kill monsters in one hit by jumping on them.

to:

** Outside of Goombas, several characters have a stomping move as their down aerials. Some of these characters include Captain Falcon, Ganondorf, Ness, Greninja, Zelda and Donkey Kong (prior to ''Smash 4''). Oddly, neither Mario nor Luigi have stomping moves in spite of it being their most used attack throughout their games.
