* Very common in ''VideoGame/DragonBallXenoverse'' and its sequel, being included in many of the characters' combos, as well as several super skills, like Meteor Strike and Meteor Blow, which launch the opponent, and then teleport the user in path of their flight to land a follow up attack. Gogeta's skill, Super Mad Dance takes this further, being an example of multihit variant instead, as you keep kicking the helpless opponent around.

* In ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''/''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'' crossover ''Fanfic/TheVampireOfSteel'', Buffy (in Supergirl's body) performs a Flying Takedown to finish off a Kryptonian vampire.
-->She exerted all her borrowed power to put herself on top, in mid-air, with Zol-Am positioned between her and the ground. Then, with all the strength and speed left to her—and it was considerable—the Slayer in Supergirl’s body shoved both of them towards the Earth.\\
Zol-Am barely had time to figure out what was happening, and not nearly enough to resist.\\
Seeing it, Angel shouted, “Take cover!” to both allies and demons alike. The two camps didn’t have to be told twice. The soldiers of Zol-Am’s ragtag army scattered, hitting the ground. Cordy and Xander flattened out. Giles, Buffy, and Willow still remained in their trance, immobile but understanding.\\
A two-person meteor fell from the sky and slammed into the ground with the impact of a moderate California earthquake.

*** Of course, in between these, [[spoiler: Rakan pulls a Flash Step Spike by intercepting Negi's aerial dodge, [[BarehandedBladeBlock catching his sword]], and just pounding him back down to Earth so hard most of his ''internal organs'' take damage. And yes... it ''isn't enough''. It's just that kind of fight.]]

* Tai Lung, the awesome BigBad of ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'', shows just how much of a badass he truly is with this trope. [[spoiler: Po, the Dragon Warrior, has a uniquely hilarious variation of his own wherein he bounces the enemy into the sky ''with his big stomach,'' and waits as he then comes crashing down from the clouds with a resounding thud.]]

* [[spoiler: Henry]] of ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes'' has one of the most [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZNsyofCN-a4 spectacular ones]]: he ''impales'' Travis, flings him off the beam katana into the sky, at a 45-degree angle, jumps into the air and knocks him straight upwards after he's already a good forty feet up, and when he's high in the sky, leaps up once more, grabs him, hurls him downwards with a bodyslam, and finishes it by descending, standing on his beam katana, to impale Travis ''again'', so hard it sends chunks of pavement flying. Needless to say, this is a OneHitKill.

* The final battle of ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaLordsOfShadow'' does this in the final battle against [[spoiler: Satan]], Gabriel and his enemy suddenly cause an UnexpectedGenreChange and causes the final fight to go DBZ on you with the action command sequence, success or failure determins who gets spiked, with losing being a OneHitKill.

** Both Mario and Mecha Sonic perform a Multihit Meteor: Mario against Axem Ranger Red, where he first slammed Red into the ground, then kicked him into the air and blasted him with a {{Kamehamehadoken}}-styled fireball; and Mecha Sonic ''also'' against Axem Ranger Red, where after a particular brutal trashing [[spoiler: (and killing)]] of the other Axem Rangers, he finished Red by punching him towards the ground, ''catching him'' without us seeing him move, and then kicked him into the sky where he got vaporized by a {{Kamehamehadoken}}. Alvin Earthworm appears to have a thing for this kind of move.

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons 3.5'': Can be pulled off at around level 10+ by bull rushing or throwing an opponent, then using the Mirrored Pursuit counter from ''Tome of Battle'' (when your opponent moves, you move to any adjacent square within range) to trigger the Sun School feat from ''Complete Warrior'' (whenever you move instantly or teleport, you can make a free attack).

* Mayor Mike Haggar from ''VideoGame/FinalFight'' and Zangief from ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' both the spinning piledriver: grab your enemy, jump 20 feet in the air and land on the ground, their head first. Haggar has a SuperMove where he throws his opponent and catches them on the way down. Zangief's SuperMove involves consecutive spinning piledrivers. [[AllThereInTheManual According to the manual,]] the two are official rivals, trying to make fancier piledrivers.
** Hugo from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIII'' has a move where he throws his opponent off a wall, jumps after them, and breaks their back over his as he lands. Alex's SuperMove involves multiple power bombs.

*** Cracker Jack from ''EX 2 Plus'' (where level 3 moves are all Meteor moves, complete with victory icon of the same). He punts you into the sky, then smacks you with a baseball bat, which, depending on how "accurate" you were with the button press, sends you to the moon, which then bounces you back to earth like the pinball you've become.

** Some characters have grapple meteor strikes. For instance, one of Kirby's grabs have him jumping high into the sky with his opponent and then crash into the ground, and Ganondorf's aerial Flame Choke has him grab his opponent's face and slam them downwards, be there ground to crash on [[TakingYouWithMe or not]]. This is especially useful against unknowing players, as due to the way the slam move works, Ganondorf will always be KO'd *last*, meaning that it is a [[https://youtu.be/wuZf2AVI_3Q guaranteed win]] if the Ganon has equal or more stocks.
