* [[CoolOldGuy Augus]] from AsurasWrath does one of the most insane one of these ever. He uses an extendable blade to fling Asura off the moon and ram into the earth at Relativistic speeds, Slams Asura into the ground, and the blade slices through him, [[AbsurdlySharpBlade and the entire planet]], and it keeps going.

** The latest Tekken installments, ''Tekken 6'' and ''Tag 2'' gave Devil Jin (and also Angel in ''Tag 2'') a move that is called Hell's Gate in the in-game movelists. Basically, it's a sidestep into a massive uppercut that sends the opponent skyrocket style into the air, followed by your character teleporting above the foe and slamming him/her into the ground, and finishing with a laser beam at the grounded opponent. It does pretty high damage for a simple 3-hit combo.

* Insecticon of ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' pulls a uniquely vicious variation of this move on Megatron: It kicks the Decepticon leader into the air, flies after him and bloodily rips a chunk of his shoulder off with its mandibles ''in mid air,'' then strikes it's victim once more and rains [[MoreDakka a hail of laser fire after him]] as he crashes into the cave-floor like a rag-doll.
* ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Princess Twilight Sparkle]]'' delivers a Multihit Meteor to Tirek in their battle during the fourth season finale, first spiking him into the ground with a blast of magic then following in with a second larger blast as he's lying in the dirt.

* In ''{{Red Steel 2}}'', after the player unlocks "The Eagle" he can send his opponents flying into the air, at which point he has the option of flying up there and obliterating them however he sees fit. (This Troper's favorite technique is the shotgun.)

** 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.]]

* As an homage to ''DragonBallZ'', ''SuperMarioBrosZ'' does this quite a bit. Usually, Mecha Sonic is the one doing the spiking, as he's generally a villainous {{Badass}}.

** 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]]''.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.
