* Happens repeatedly in ''{{Literature/Redwall}}'', giving the amount of stream travelling. In one case, a hare asks the shrews how often they go through that, only to learn that was the first time they'd done it.

Added DiffLines:

* Averted in ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'': Despite the entire world being rimmed by a waterfall as the ocean pours into... whatever's below Weyard, your boat treats waterfalls as impassible barriers, [[spoiler:even once it gets wings.]] The closest thing to a literally InevitableWaterfall happens in the ice-floored levels, where your character tries running in place (then in midair) as they slide towards the drop.

* The climax of the 1953 film ''Niagara'', in which the heroine is stuck on a boat moving inexorably toward the lip of the titular waterfall with the mentally unstable AntiVillain. [[spoiler:He pulls a RedemptionEqualsDeath by helping her climb out onto a rock before he plunges lethally over the edge.]]

*** Which makes him the only person who is GenreSavvy about it during ''Discworld/TheLastHero''. There's actually a Discworld culture that built a giant net in front of the Rimfall and lives off what they catch, it's ''that'' inevitable.

* In ''Fanfic/OliviaGoesWest'', a crossover between ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective'' and ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'', the bad guys device a plan to [[HeKnowsTooMuch get rid of]] the {{snooping little kid}}s Fievel Mousekewitz and Olivia Flaversham by trapping them on Fievel's secret raft, sending them down the dangerous currents of Green River without oars and [[MakeItLookLikeAnAccident making it sound like they couldn't be saved in time]]. As the children go down the rapids, Fievel is too shocked to do anything because of his resurfaced [[ContinuityNod bad memories about being swept to the Atlantic Ocean]], forcing Olivia to keep the raft from hitting the rocks all by herself. Inevitably, they fall down a waterfall that's fifteen feet high (but for mice children like them, it might as well be fifty feet), but fortunately they survive. When [[GreatDetective Basil]] investigates the place and finds proof that the children survived, he concludes that their small size and light weight allowed them to avoid hitting the rocks below the water.
