* When the Super meter is full in Creator/DataEast's little-known fighting/wrestling game ''Mutant Fighter'', most characters can perform a move where they toss their opponent high into the air, leap up to catch them, and then throw or drive them back down to the ground.

** Since the objective of fights is to knock people away from the stage, meteor moves are a very useful technique. Many characters have moves that, when struck correctly, send the opposing player rocketing downwards. If there's no ground below them, it's K.O. time.

Many characters have moves that, when struck correctly, send the opposing player rocketing downwards. If there's no ground below them, it's K.O. time. There are two kinds, both named by the fans: Meteor Smashes, whose momentum can be cancelled by jumping or using recovery moves, and Spikes, which send people straight down with no way of cancelling.

* Gravity is this,[[CaptainObvious obviously]]. If you fall for 12 seconds it'll meteor you to the ground at 120mph/194kph.

* [[http://photography.nationalgeographic.com/photography/enlarge/birds-rondeau-park.html This awesome picture]] shows two woodpeckers fighting over a nest hole. One of them has grabbed the other's ''tongue'' in its claws and beak and is in the process of slamming its opponent into the ground. [[FeatheredFiend Birds are hardcore, man]].

** 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.

* [[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}}.
