* Happens to the villain of the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' episode "Prophecy of Doom", during the confrontation at Gotham Observatory. Unable to save the girl and still stop the bad guy from fleeing down the planetarium's main aisle to the exit, Batman drops a huge hollow globe of the Earth from a giant orrery, which rolls down the aisle and collides with the villain. It shatters, but it knocks him down long enough to be caught.

** ''[[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheTempleOfDoom Temple of Doom]]'' uses the "descending ceiling" variety, in which Indy and his sidekick Short Round are about to be crushed by a spiked ceiling coming towards them. THey only escape by convincing Miriam, who's on the outside of the trap, to pull a bug-covered lever to make the ceiling go back up.

** ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'' is the TropeMaker and the current trope image, in which Indy thinks he's successfully stolen a treasure from an ancient temple, only to be confronted with a giant rolling rock trap that he has to sprint from in order to avoid being crushed. It's easily the most-parodied scene of the entire film franchise.

* ''Franchise/IndianaJones'':
** Of course, in both ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'' and ''[[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheTempleOfDoom Temple of Doom]]''.
** Subverted in ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade'' when Indy and his dad are in a car being chased by a German fighter plane. They drive into a tunnel, the plane follows them, knocking its wings off the side of the entrance. The plane is now in flames but still following them with Indy's dad telling him to drive faster. The plane just goes past them with the pilot looking with astonishment at his plane on fire and it explodes after it leaves the tunnel.

* ''Franchise/IndianaJones'':
The ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' series is the trope namer. Dr. Jones frequently [[IndyPloy has to come up with plans on the fly]], most of which involve a step in the neighborhood of "run like hell."

** ''VideoGame/IndianaJonesAndTheEmperorsTomb'' pulls this off with a DrillTank, in an [[ThatOneLevel insanely frustrating level]].

** ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'' has one too in Ocean Palace, with first one, then two, and then finally ''three'' rolling demonic-looking boulders [[DoomyDoomsOfDoom of doom]] that ''chase you at the same time''. You can just run towards the camera in Speed formation as fast as you can for several seconds and outrun it, though. [[OhCrap But if you're not in Speed formation when you hit the spring that takes you there, and you don't hit the switch formation button before you even land...]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Penumbra}}: Overture'' has the classic giant boulder escape. Turn the wrong way at the end, and instead of safety, you'll find a nest of DemonicSpiders. It also has two scenes where giant worms act as stand-ins for the boulder -- just that they can [[OhCrap go around corners]].

* Choosing Jack Van Burace in ''WildArms'' gives you not one, but TWO of these directly after each other. Thankfully it was just in the cutscene.

** ''VideoGame/WarioLand The Shake Dimension'' also has giant boulder chases in Mt Lava Lava and Sneak Peak. The boulders don't actually hurt Wario, he just gets stuck to them and misses out on a ton of secrets along the way, so to get 100% completion you have to outrun them either long enough to get the treasure or somehow jump over the boulder. There are also sections with all these small boulders rolling down a path at certain intervals, which again must be avoided/jumped over.
