*** Sent up in ''Yo! Son Goku and His Friends Return!'' Gotenks explicitly [[CallingYourAttacks uses Tenshinhan-san's volleyball attack]]. ** Goku does a BRUTAL Multihit Meteor (with not one, but ''two'' hits mid-air) on Burter in what is probably the best CurbStompBattle of the Frieza Saga. Him being one of the Ginyu, who were on the verge of effortlessly killing off all the other good characters and Vegeta just a moment ago, makes it all the more impressive.

* Superman deals a Flying Takedown to Doomsday in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lX6Fa_bVCro&feature=share&list=PL68F4DAD8993DCE43 this adaptation]] of ''TheDeathOfSuperman'', at about 3:11. [[ForegoneConclusion It doesn't work]], and Superman's pretty winded from the effort.

** The Eighth Gate takes both the Multi-Hit Meteor and Flying Takedown to Megaton levels. First off is the Evening Elephant, a Multi-Hit Meteor move with only 5 successive hits, but hits powerful enough to drill miles down into the dirt and immobilize even the strongest shinobi. If that fails, there is the Night Guy, which practically turns the user into a human meteor [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons with a dragon aura]]. The speed of the attack reaches relativistic speeds, as it ''bends space'' a sizable distance ahead of it. The resulting impact dwarfs the explosive power of a ''[[FantasticNuke Tailed Beast Bomb]]''.

** Later versions let you either throw or jump on your opponents to similar effect, and then, while they're still in mid-air, bodyslam them with another jump before they could even react. If you're lucky, you could even continually combo-jump airborne opponents until they're reduced to nothing but red paint.

* Gravity is this,[[CaptainObvious obviously]]. If you fall for 12 seconds it'll meteor you to the ground at 120mph/194kph. ** In addition to that, actual meteors will do this to you if you're somehow unlucky enough to get hit with one while in the air. Size plays a factor in this, though. A big one will meteor you, while a small one will simply pierce through you.

** Thanks to the re-tooled mechanics in Smash 4 characters launched to the ground with enough force will, instead of just slamming into the ground stunned and sliding from any preserved horizontal momentum, ricochet off the floor and back up into the air. While usually this results in a star/screen KO, if they end up over a pit you can, with good timing, [[NoKillLikeOverkill slam dunk them right back down to their deaths for a double-meteor combo.]]

Because this attack (especially Flying Takedown) implies that the attacker is far stronger than the attacked, it's usually a villain that does the attacking. When it's the hero attacking, it's usually a CurbStompBattle. While you're at it, bring out the WrestlerInAllOfUs by including a powerbomb or the like. Not to be confused with [[ColonyDrop dropping an actual meteor on an opponent]].

* The ''VideoGame/DragonBallZSuperButoden'' games created the likely [[TropeNamer trope namer]]. Goku's secret attack in the first installment was the Meteor Smash, knocking the opponent into the sky, back into the ground, and into the distance. While most characters received variants of the automatic combo, they ironically moved away from displaying actual Meteor Moves as the series went on.
