* ''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.

* Joey Falconetti makes his debut scene doing this in ''VideoGame/{{Ripper}}'', as a way to interrogate Jake Quinlan. It's helped that Falconetti's already a KnifeNut. This trope is also played with, as the act takes place in one of his cyberspace wells, although it's never stated if the knives are virtual; granted, he also has real knives outside of cyberspace.
