* In the anime of ''Manga/{{Golgo 13}}'', a hitman posing as a circus performer demonstrates his skill with his WeaponOfChoice by throwing a knife into the bulls-eye of a dartboard, just past his girlfriend's head. She shows her own badass credentials by [[NervesOfSteel not flinching]]. After playing the trope straight on stage, he then uses his skills against Togo, who unfortunately is an unflinching BadAss himself.

* In the French film ''Film/TheGirlOnTheBridge'' (1999), a knife throwing act is at the centre of the plot. Vanessa Paradis stars as Adele, a girl who attempts suicide by jumping from a bridge but is saved by knife thrower Gabor, played by Daniel Auteuil, who persuades her to become his target girl. They soon fall into a deep relationship in which knife-throwing is very overtly depicted as a sadomasochistic substitute for sex.

The old carnival routine where a person (usually a woman) stands against a board as a target (sometimes a spinning wheel to ramp up the danger) and the throwing knives are supposed to hit on either side of the target, which may lead to a KnifeOutline.

* ''Series/{{Elementary}}'': Footballer Phil Simms appears as himself in "Just a Regular Irregular". Apparently he is the world's greatest knife thrower and only went into football because there is no money in the impalement arts. He is Sherlock's knife-throwing expert and Sherlock consults with him about how a murder during a knife-throwing act at a circus in the 1930s could have been committed. Simms tells Sherlock that his theory is impossible and ten demonstrates his knife-throwing prowess before leaving.
