* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', during the battle, Palmer narrowly escapes being beheaded by the Tiny Bronco's propeller and runs away mocking the heroes, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny only to be ran over by an inexplicably and suddenly incoming truck]]
* ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty4'' has a helicopter being shot down and digging itself into the ground while sliding towards the player and his partner. The latter frantically tries to get away from the blades, which come to a stop just before hitting him. He's still injured in the process, though, and you have to carry him around for the rest of the level.

* You can do this in (at least the DS version) of the ''{{Transformers}}'' game of the movie when using a helicopter form, but it only really works on random vehicles driving around, and only damages them a little bit.
** In the [=PS2=]/Xbox-360 versions of the ''{{Transformers}}'' movie games, Blackout and Grindor use their helicoptor rotors as powerful melee weapons, swinging them (folded up) as swords or unfurling them to spin them. As could be expected, these characters do the second highest melee damage in the games, second only to Megatron, quickly trashing large numbers of the smaller enemies with every swing. (Especially visible during Blackout's boss fight vs Ironhide).

* The above is given a [[CrowningMomentOfFunny hilarious]] callback in ''VideoGame/SonicMania'''s Hydropolis Act 1: you take control of the vehicle from the original act 2 and try to suck Eggman into the propeller!

* Bystanders in ''SimCopter'' can be killed or injured by the rotary blades while landing. You lose points for doing so unless it's a fleeing criminal.

Added DiffLines:

* Starting in ''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles'', rotary blades on badniks tend to damage Sonic and company if struck. The boss of Hydropolis is all about this trope, in fact, as Eggman tries to suck you up into the propeller on the underside of his vehicle.

* ''Film/TerminalVelocity'' ended with the main baddie parachuting on a wind generator. We don't get to see the blending, but the next scene shows one of the blades with blood on it, implying it's killed him. The blade has no damage whatsoever, despite the rather muscular human that slammed on it.

* In ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'''s [[ThatOneLevel Ravenholm]], there are several makeshift devices that are basically helicopter blenders, without the helicopter. Such a device is just an engine with a scrap-metal blade crudely attached to the drive shaft. It cuts zombies, and you, if you're not careful, in half! From the same game are "manhacks," which are spinning, flying, bladed robots about the size of a football. Their goal is to fly into you and [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin do what their name says]]. Between their own clumsiness and the [[BlownAcrossTheRoom knockback from your weapons]], they spend a lot of time grinding against concrete walls and other immovable objects, with no apparent ill effect.

* In ''TheSuperHeroSquadShow'', the Falcon's pet falcon, Redbird (a ButtMonkey of epic degree... like Falcon himself) flies out of the SHIELD Helicarrier. An instant after Falcon yells "Watch for the rotors!" we hear the sound of a buzzsaw. [[spoiler: Redbird only suffered AmusingInjuries.]]

* MatthewReilly uses variants of this trope. A mook in ''Scarecrow'' tried to drop Mother onto a helicopter while she was hanging out of the side of a skyscraper, but fell through himself. In ''Temple'' and ''Area 7'', the rotors of a helicopter on the ground are used as an improvised weapon.
