** In ''Film/StarTrekGenerations'', the ''Enterprise'' outruns the blast wave of a supernova. Unlike the previous example, though, the issue is not their ability to outrun the supernova (even Warp 1, the lowest possible warp speed, is more than sufficient to outrun a supernova), but whether they can afford to wait around long enough to rescue the crew members currently engaged in a firefight on the nearby space station.

There's a second one when the ''Enterprise'' suffers a warp core breach. They perform saucer separation and attempt to get out of the explosion. However, they can't clear it fast enough and the shockwave from the explosion causes the saucer to be knocked into the nearby planet.

The {{Badass}} often showcases just how cool he is by always [[UnflinchingWalk calmly walking away]] from the building or car, and perhaps casually putting on his CoolShades or lighting up a cigarette just as the explosion goes off. Badass characters don't have to run unless it's ''darned'' important. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sqz5dbs5zmo Cool guys don't look at explosions]].

** Sonic tries this again during the finale of ''VideoGame/SonicColors'', [[spoiler:this time up against a ''black hole''. Seeing that nothing--not even light--can escape it once pulled in, Sonic (who can only normally break the sound barrier) actually ''fails''... [[FissionMailed but the]] [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Wisps]] [[FissionMailed save him]], so it's all good]].

* ''Film/Gravity''. Happens for a brief moment (yes, yes, InSpace) when an oxygen cylinder explodes during the zero-G fire scene.

* ''Series/PersonOfInterest''. Vigilance rigs a dead drop in a lockup to soak in gasoline, then ignite [[FieryCoverup if anyone finds it]]. There's a brief scene where Reese helps Finch hobble away from the fireball, because he can't run due to his disability. They're already out of the lockup though, so it's just a matter of getting away from the blast area.
