* Indian film ''Alluda Mazaaka...!'' has a rather famous one where the lead character, portrayed by [[MemeticMutation India's Chuck Norris]], Chiranjeevi slides his horse under a truck. Yes, you read that right, he [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86PUB4u2s2A slides a horse]]!

* The TropeNamer is ''Densha de D'', an AffectionateParody of ''Manga/InitialD'' [[RecycledINSPACE using trains instead of cars]]. Towards the end of one race, Takumi shifts his train to roll down both sets of tracks on a corner at high speed, intentionally spreading his train across two sets of tracks to minimise the risk of flipping over sideways from the forces involved. A shocked Keisuke blurts out the infamous line.

** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJO0KzTgcMI Pugachev's Cobra]] is basically a vertical drift where a fighter pilot points his nose upward suddenly, using the entire plane as an airbrake, before pointing it back down to shoot at the enemy that just flew past.

* One of [[Literature/CiaphasCain Jurgen's]] many talents is driving a forty-ton Salamander scout tank ''[[DrivesLikeCrazy like a sportscar]]''. Pray you aren't in the way if he realizes he's running late, because the Commissar is ''never'' allowed to be late.

* In ''MobileSuitGundamMSIGLOO'' and ''Igloo 2'', the Hidolfr and RTX-440 Guntanks are machines that are in scale with the mobile suits they fight against. Given that, [[LightningBruiser they're much faster and more agile then they appear.]] An example being the Hidolfr pivoting on its axis ''while moving forward.''

* The particularly memorable "tank chase" from ''Film/GoldenEye'' is one of the stronger examples, with Film/JamesBond chasing after the DamselInDistress in a "Model T" (a Russian T-series heavy tank, that is). [[spoiler:Extra style points for lifting a memorial statue, sticking it in an overhang, and crushing some cars on his tail.]] That the guy he's chasing is in a small Soviet-bloc car just makes it even more [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oMX7_z4ixFQ awesome]].
** [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] earlier with a Mercedes-Benz [[PopTheTires sans its tires, which have been shot to pieces]], in ''Film/{{Octopussy}}'', where Bond has to catch up with a circus train. [[ThisIsGonnaSuck Cue train approaching from the opposite direction]]. He, naturally, makes the jump before the inevitable collision. [[CaptainObvious Mercedes-Benzes are not frequently made in track gauges]], so the special effects crew had to improvise one.
* ''[[Film/TheItalianJob2003 The Italian Job]]'' (2003 remake) features some particularly shiny Mini Coopers navigating through buildings like some parkour maniac. The cars used were heavily modified to withstand the highly atypical driving conditions.
** [[Film/TheItalianJob1969 The original version]], with Michael Caine, has ''even better'' Mini car-fu of this nature, including a scene where the cars can be seen driving over the roof of the local Fiat factory.

* ''Film/{{Battleship}}'' manages to do it with... well, a ''battleship'', thanks to creative application of the anchor.
** This maneuver is called [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anchor#Club_hauling club hauling]] and was used in the age of sail to turn in a small radius. Using it on a battleship at flank speed would probably just drag the anchor.

* The titular ''MetalSlug'' is your familiar anime-inspired snub tank, capable of jumping over lesser military machinery (the bomber pilots certainly didn't expect to be attacked '''from above'''), and [[DodgeTheBullet ducking under]] rounds from other tanks.

* ''PlanetSide 2'' features the Lightning, a [[FragileSpeedster one-man light tank]]. With the "Racer" chassis upgrade, it's capable of doing powerslides. The alternate chassis upgrade, "Rival" improves its turning radius, allowing it to drift once sufficiently upgraded. It should be noted that all vehicles in Planetside 2, no matter the weight or drivetrain have utterly appalling traction, so slides in heavy tanks and 6-wheel-drive armoured busses are no challenge to pull.

* WarThunder Ground Forces is notorious for having all tanks slide around at the slightest bit of turning at speed. Ironic, as it's in most ways more realistic than it's rival, WorldOfTanks.

* ''Series/TopGearUS'' has an episode where the resident BadassDriver, Tanner Foust, is challenged to put a variety of vehicles into a drift. He manages to drift a stretch Lincoln limousine (with [[ButtMonkey Rutledge]] in the back), and a full-sized ''city bus''. A later episode has the three hosts racing tractors (which they described in terms of cars); Tanner begins to do donuts in his 6 ton tractor after the race.
* Due to high crosswinds, the pilots seen in ''Flying Wild Alaska'' do this on pretty much every other landing.

* In anime, the conventional battle tank is often on the losing side. Presenting the "snub tank", the subcompact version, which usually features improved speed and handling, and a short main gun that's no less powerful. Likely originates in ''DominionTankPolice''.
