* ''Literature/TheFourHorsemenUniverse'': [=CASPers=], the distinctive MiniMecha used by human mercenaries, are equipped with JumpJetPacks that allow them to make paratrooper insertions without needing actual parachutes. ''Asbaran Solutions'' shows the White Company executing such an attack in the stereotypical "jumping from a plane one by one" manner.

* In a rare example of a bad guy pulling this on a hero, in ''CuriousGeorge: Follow That Monkey,'' security jerk Danna Wolf leaps out of an airplane to chase George and the Man in the Yellow Hat. Seeing that they had a parachute and he did not, he caught up with them and saved himself by hanging on the Man's boots.

* ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'' has one episode where ComicBook/CaptainAmerica and [[Comicbook/{{X-Men}} Wolverine]] perform this in World War II. Since their mission requires quickness, they do it without parachutes. Justified in that both have a healing factor and the plane nearly lands to accomplish this.
