-->'''Ko-Dan Lieutenant:''' Star Drive out. Thrusters out. We're caught in the planet's gravitational pull. ''What do we do?''
-->'''Ko-Dan Captain:'''(matter-of-factly) We die.

* ''Webcomic/PerryBibleFellowship'': [[http://pbfcomics.com/comics/astronaut-fall/ "Astronaut Fall,"]] in which [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin an astronaut falls from space]]. This doesn't make any sense unless they were performing a spacewalk ''during a launch'' (i.e. before their ship reached orbit), or if he was launched away at a ridiculous relative speed (at least a few hundred meters per second). Slipping off a ship or space station in orbit would just leave him stuck in a slightly different orbit.

* Actually averted in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' [[StarWarsExpandedUniverse Expanded Universe]] novel ''Vector Prime'', where the weird gravity device used by the [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Yuuzhan Vong]] to ColonyDrop Sernpidal's moon onto the planet does not cause a "sucking" effect, but instead the moon's orbit decays more or less realistically every time it passes over the device. Not that there's anything realistic about a superweapon that produces a gravitational force greater than a planet's.

** A strange example in ''The Last Jedi'', is at the beginning when the rebels mount a bombing run on an attacking Star Destroyer. The bombers have bomb racks straight out of WWII, in which the bomb bay doors open and the unguided bombs simply drop onto the target. <i>In space</i>.
