* ''ThePiratesOfPenzance'' (the 1983 film) - The Pirate King runs into the boom during the Pirate King number (but it doesn't knock him overboard, though he does that later on his own).

** In ''Sea Scouts'', Donald orders his nephews to hoist the sail on his ship, but they raise the boom rather than actually unfurl the sail. As Don commands them to lower the boom, they accidentally let go of their rope, causing it to drop onto their uncle.
-->'''Donald:''' Sometimes, they take me to literally!
** A RunningGag in ''No Sail'' involves Donald putting nickels in a coin-operated sailboat and getting hit on the head with the boom of the sail when it pops out. [[RuleOfThree The third time this happens]], Donald moves to the opposite side to avoid getting hit, but the boom lowers on that side as well.

* This is ''supposedly'' the source of the [[BritsWithBattleships Royal Navy]] acronym [[FunWithAcronyms BOHICA]]: Bend Over, Here It Comes Again. It's claimed that the acronym references this trope, but it's also likely to be an example of GettingCrapPastTheRadar.

* ''TopGear'': Happens whenever the trio are tasked with turning cars into watercraft. Inevitably, James May decides that making a sailing car is so much easier than a motorboat-car (which it is) and neglects this trope. Cue the boom smacking into his head every few minutes.

''That's why they call it the "Boom"!''[[note]] DontExplainTheJoke--For the sound it makes when it hits you in the head. Not really, but a old sailing joke.[[/note]]
