* ''Anime/VampireHunterD Bloodlust'': D does one of these early on when he gets knocked off of Meier Link's carriage. [[PlayedForLaughs]] when his [[OrganAutonomy left hand]] yells "My face!" as he's being dragged along the ground.

* ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'': Wavedashing in ''Melee'' is an {{Exploited|Trope}} version of this. By air-dodging diagonally ''into'' the ground, a character can skid forward in a cloud of dust... but still counts as standing still, meaning they can use attacks that couldn't be used while running. 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.
** A stricter interpretation is the slide suffered after shielding an attack, which may be enough to get just out of range of a follow-up. Luigi in particular may slide clear across the stage.

* The MMORPG ''{{Mabinogi}}'' uses this as a combat mechanism.
** It also subverts this trope whenever you occasionally get knocked back and slide before you tumble over and regain your composure.

** Might be slightly justifiable (as justifiable as something betraying the laws of physics in multiple ways can get) in the sense that the holograms are known as 'Solid Light'-type holograms - in other words, they're holograms that, while not bearing actual physical substance in the traditional sense, do still create physical effects and damage.
** Also, 99% of them (IE: all of them once the plot of the current arc kicks off) are more ancient 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]]

* [[TropeOverdosed Extremely prevalent]] in ''Anime/DragonBallZ''. It's a quick way of showing that the opponents are fairly equal.

* Batman tends to do this in TheDCAU and ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' when he's thrown, except usually without the dust. In "The Color of Revenge!", Robin gets the chance to pull this off.

* ''[[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.

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.

* ''Anime/HeartCatchPrettyCure'': 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.

* 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.
