* Probably the most extreme are some of Creator/{{Capcom}}'s ''[[CapcomVsWhatever Versus]]'' games where you could literally jump to heights around 50 times the height of your standard character. Even more impressive for the miniscule Servbot, who is jumping at least 200 times his height.

* In ''Manga/HunterXHunter'', Neferpitou is the only one of the Chimera Ant Royal Guards who can't fly (the other two either have wings or can grow wings via shapeshifting). Neferpitou instead uses his insanely powerful leg strength to launch himself to where he wants to be.

* [[MeaningfulName Springer]] does this in ''ComicBook/TheTransformers'', where it's listed one of his abilities--it's mentioned in his official bio, even. It's a bit strange that they make such a big deal of it when he also has the ability to transform into a ''helicopter'', though.

** Kickback the Insecticon also has this power, though given that he can fly in both insect and robot modes, it's even ''less'' useful than it is for Springer.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Disney/{{Tarzan}}'', during the sequence where he attempts to LeParkour away from henchmen on a ship, he performs an incredibly long jump towards the ship's funnel from atop a mast that even left his pursuers staring in awe, despite winding up getting captured moments later. The jump itself would be impossible for a normal human being to pull off considering the distance and circumstances, though it's partially [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in that the creators wanted Tarzan to be able to pull off stunts no actor could replicate in real life.
