* The last segment of ''Anime/MomotarosDivineSeaWarriors'' is Momotaro and his men successfully conducting an airborne paratroop invasion of a British-held island.
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': The titular Evangelions (including [[spoiler:the ones mass-produced by SEELE]]) do hard drops once in a while.
* The Forwards in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'' frequently perform this without the aid of parachutes. Air Mages have {{Flight}} capabilities. Ground Mages have to settle for hard drops, with their Barrier Jackets likely cushioning the impact.
** Nanoha enters the scene via high-altitude teleport in [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha the first season]] when she goes to rescue Fate from the hurricane that she caused (complete with mid-air transformation). Nanoha and Fate would both repeat this in the movie adaptation of [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs the second season]] after their Intelligent Devices received the Belkan Cartridge upgrade.
* Seen in ''Anime/ArmoredTrooperVOTOMS'' at the end of the first arc when the Melkian army makes their move and deploys an entire airborne AT battalion to [[TheSiege lay siege]] to the [[CorruptCop corrupt Woodo police department.]] Happens again in the second arc (complete with StockFootage) when the Melkian army formally decides to back the Kummen government against the Veela rebels.
* ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}:'' ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamThe08thMSTeam The 08th MS Team]]'' does this in one episode.
