* In the ''WesternAnimation/CelebrityDeathmatch'' fight between OzzyOsbourne and RobZombie, Ozzy and Mills do this with Rob's brain. (ItMakesSenseInContext, seriously. [[KentBrockmanNews Nick Diamond]] calls it a "game of HotPotato", but Ozzy is trying to keep it away from Rob, so it more fits this Trope.)

* ''Series/HouseOfAnubis'': In the season one finale, Sibuna does this...with a jar of deadly sandflies they had managed to get from Rufus following Fabian [[BewareTheNiceOnes tackling him to the ground.]] Seeing that it was extremely dangerous, it also seemed like a game of HotPotato as well; ''nobody'' wanted to hold it, they just didn't want to ''drop'' it, and they wanted to keep Rufus from getting it. Jerome soon solved the problem by throwing it at the ground near Rufus himself and bolting, allowing Sibuna to escape while Rufus was attacked by the swarm of sandflies.
