* ''[[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.

* ''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.

Added DiffLines:

* Happens in the VideoGame/DOOM2016 reboot when fighting the [[spoiler: Cyberdemon]], though in this case it is less PunchedAcrossTheRoom so much as it's being ''Thrown'' Across the Room. Nevertheless the Doom Marine still manages to stay upright and skid to a dead stop though [[TheBerserker the sheer rage in his system]].

* 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.)

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.
