* ''Videogame/LuckyTower'': In Lucky Tower II, Von Wanst does this with a haunch to make his horse run (is that horse carnivorous?). Later, 3 bandits are seen doing the same to their mules with carots.

* In the Sheer Heart Attack chapter of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureDiamondIsUnbreakable'', Koichi figures out a way to keep the heat-seeking bomb Sheet Heart Attack distracted by using Echoes Act 2's power to create sound effects what carries the same property as the thing it could come from to create a ball with "sizzle" sound effect on it and tangle in front of Sheer Heart Attack, since it only explodes when coming in contact with its target. It keeps it distracted until the electric stove Koichi turned on previously heated up to the point that Sheer Heart Attack aims at it.

* Used in the Tropfest short film ''Cargo'' which can be watched [[http://youtu.be/gryenlQKTbE here]]. A man is [[ZombieInfectee bitten by zombie and knows that he will turn]] but he is alone with his baby (mommie was the one who bit him). He has to get the baby to an area that he thinks may be safe, and he doesn't want to kill his baby when he turns. So he gathers [[spoiler:some organs, suspending them in front of him, and ties his hands together so his zombie self will trudge along till he reaches the safe area, unknowingly carrying the baby on his back. He even puts a balloon on his back to keep the baby quiet and not alert his zombie self.]] The film manages to play this to a devastatingly tearjerking effect.

** In one episode, they were down to the last banana, so Peter Potamus snatched it away before Magilla could eat it. Both of them running on the treadmill (Magilla "chasing" Peter for taking the banana) kept the ark powered.

* In chapter 36 of ''Manga/AhoGirl'', Yoshiko comes to Akkun's house to play, while he would much rather focus on his studying. To get Yoshiko out of his hair for a while, he ties her TrademarkFavoriteFood of bananas to a stick and ties to the stick to her back. She spends ''five hours'' leaping about the room trying to get to the bananas without success, while Akkun occasionally twists the knife by grabbing one from the bunch and eating it.

* One of the ''MadMax'' films used this with the hero being sent into exile on a donkey with a small jar of water hanging in front of its head.
* ''Film/HoneyIShrunkTheKids'' did this with an ant and a piece of the discarded food the kids found.
* In ''TheBoondockSaints'', Detective Greenley humorously suggests that the only way they're going to catch the [=MacManus=] brothers is by "...dangling a potato on a string" -- of course, they walk in just as he's saying this.

* In one short in ''TheLittleRascals'' series, the boys had a "taxi" that was powered by a mule/donkey pushing from the back and a carrot on a stick in front of it was used to make it push.
