* Happens in ''RockosModernLife'', when Heffer knocks over the walkers of Senior citizens on a cruise line designed for the elderly.
* Subverted in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' where Stan and Steve are on a road trip.

* ''GeneratorRex'': Rex kicks over a row of motor scooters in "Breach".

* Turk does this in ''{{Scrubs}}'', before JD arrives to heroically stop the bikers from pummeling Turk. The part about the bikers getting angry is then subverted, as JD makes up for the knocked-over bikes by buying them cappuccinos.

* [[ConversationalTroping Talked about]] in book series ''Agent of Hel.'' Daisy, the protagonist, has to visit a seedy bar that is run by a bunch of tough biker ghouls, a type of emotion-draining vampire. She makes a wide arc around all their bikes perfectly lined up in a row. When her partner, a werewolf cop named Cody, asks her what she's doing, she uses the PeeWeesBigAdventure example of what mind happen if she gets too close.

* TV Variation: in the first episode of the failed late [[TheEighties 80s]] Van Patten project ''Series/TheMaster'' ([[TheMovie feature-lengthified]] and [[MysteryScienceTheater3000 dubiously immortalized]] under the title ''Master Ninja''), the guy the camera is pointed at most of the time is first shown being thrown bodily out of a bar by a biker gang. In retaliation, he hooks their bikes together with steel cable and baits them into chasing his van, so that when they speed off, [[LawOfDisproportionateResponse the bikes pull themselves apart and send their riders flying onto the concrete]].
