** VideoGame/YoshisIsland also subverted this: when Goombas ''do'' show up, jumping on them squashes them but doesn't actually kill them: they just scurry around flattened.

* An unusual FPS example: ''RiseOfTheTriad'' allowed you to kill {{Mook}}s and deathmatch opponents by jumping on them. Doing this successfully in the Score More deathmatch mode would reward you with the highest amount of points, due to how difficult it is to pull off on another player.

* ''VideoGame/ClarencesBigChance'': Lampshaded and justified; Clarence is so heavy that he crushes enemies by jumping on them.

Believe it or not, this is a JustifiedTrope when you consider that the average man weighs about ninety kilos/two hundred pounds (body, clothes and equipment all included); having that much weight suddenly land on your head would be enough to knock most people (let alone squishy mutant chestnut critters) out cold. The biggest problems are [[InASingleBound getting high enough]] above a person to execute the stomp and not hurting yourself while landing.

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.
