* Seen [[http://mangafox.me/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v10/c084/9.html here]] in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', where Setsuna has just been pushed back by Negi's attack in the previous page.



* During an ComicBook/{{X-Men}}[=/=]Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration {{crossover}}, Colossus takes a swing at Data, who [[PunchCatch catches]] the blow, but is still shoved back a few feet.

* In ''[[VideoGame/FistOfTheNorthStarKensRage Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage]]'', named male enemy characters who are defeated are shown in a cutscene being pushed into a KnockbackSlide from the attack that defeated them. ([[TheSmurfettePrinciple Mamiya]], [[DoubleStandard on the other hand]], gets knocked onto her ass.)

* ''VIdeoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' has some enemies that can cause knockback against you, which forces your character to slide backwards as they stagger. Stronger attacks cause you to slide back further.

* It actually can happen in real life, but it takes certain kinds of surfaces, such as dusty dry earth or sand (the particles give up a lot easier than the person's stability does) or hardwood floor (as in the ''Risky Business'' slide.)
* Playing tennis on clay courts will also cause the players to slide in this manner (though of course not nearly as dramatically as in fiction).

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' does this on more than one occasion.

to:

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' does this on more than one occasion. Notably, due to the nature of the cast's NotQuiteFlight powers, a character will often skid back and throw up dust ''in midair''.



* ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'': Wavedashing in Melee works as an example, except the throw is self-induced by using an air-dodge to force oneself into the ground. It kicks up a cloud of dust in a similar fashion. A more easily seen version of this trope in Melee (and Brawl) is in the Home Run Contest, while the sandbag is slowing to a stop.

By air-dodging diagonally into the ground.

When two characters fight, sometimes a character will get hit hard enough that they should be PunchedAcrossTheRoom or otherwise thrown clear through the air ... but instead, they will brace for impact, take the hit, and ''sliiide'' backwards on their feet, carving or ripping trails in the ground (and kicking up plenty of dust) as they do so, until they come to a stop. Bonus points if they also reach one hand down to the ground for extra grip.

Improbable as this may be for a character to get forced backwards without getting flipped over in the process, damn, it [[RuleOfCool sure looks cool]]! and any character with enough {{Badass}}ery can pull it off.

** Also, 99% of them (IE: all of them once the plot of the current arc kicks off) are more '''ancinet world-creating demonic magic for some reason bound into a [[WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries Children's Card Game]], and thus [[AWizardDidIt might have more of an excuse]]

* Happens a few times in HajimeNoIppo, when a character takes a particularly strong hit with their guard up. Kind of ridiculous when you realize the canvas they're standing on is meant to provide solid footing so the boxers won't slip when throwing their punches.
* Manga/RurouniKenshin, at least once.

* ''[[Film/TheMatrix The Matrix Revolutions]]'' plays with this one during the final fight between Neo and [[BigBad Smith]]: at one point, they hit each other and go flying in opposite directions. Neo makes an elegant ThreePointLanding while Smith crashes into the ground and slides several yards.
** Subverted in that the ground slides with him.
* In "Big Brother", Sunny Deol gives a thug a knockback with such force it looks as if the guy is being pulled by a speeding narm truck when he hits the ground.
* In [[JackieChan Supercop]] during the training exhibition for Michelle Yeoh, the cadet in the red tank top pushes Jackie into a knockback slide with a Battering Ram Head move. Jackie blocks it and is pushed backward several feet in the gravel, kicking up some dust in the process.
* In TheHost, a main character [[spoiler: spears the beast's face with a street sign pole. The monster then convulses forward in retaliation, but the character stands his ground and slides a good distance backward as the evil thing perishes.]]
* Done in ''Film/PacificRim'' with building-sized mecha. Even better, it stops ''just'' short of a seagull.

* ''HeartcatchPrecure'': Cure Moonlight does one after receiving a big hit from Dark Pretty Cure, unlike most examples here the fact that she withstood the attack with just a slide back is treated as {{badass}} for Moonlight as she lost to the same attack in the first episode.
