** The stage Rambi Rumble from ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry2DiddysKongQuest'' is a well-known incarnation of this. The player had to flee from a giant wasp that chased them down a long tunnel. This can double as terrifying for some. The chase is started by falling down a hole, and with no forewarning, the giant wasp (about twice the size of your character) begins chasing you to an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wXv2y5vrLBI intense, heart-pounding soundtrack]]. The abruptness of the whole situation can catch even experienced players off-guard.

* There's a freely downloadable game called ''The Rolling Boulder'', in which you play this trope from the boulders perspective. You have to run over all the ''Indiana Jones'' sprites to keep them from [[FreudWasRight violating the sacred fertility statues...]]

* ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' has this in Sen's Fortress. The area is a BoobyTrap convention. One of the booby traps is a machine that launches giant boulders in various directions in various different directions throughout the fortress. The source of the boulder? A giant happily dropping the balls to a hole that feeds the entire mechanism. It isn't all that bad however, since the mechanism also creates paths to otherwise inaccessible treasures. It is also one of the ways gain access to [[spoiler: Big Hat Logan]]'s cell.

And in case you're feeling clever about pointing the boulder launcher out of the way so you can explore more freely, be advised that [[spoiler: one room has a hidden tripwire that ''[[ResetButton resets the launcher]]'' so that it points at you again]].
