* Creator/JackieChan does this at some point in ''Film/TheAccidentalSpy'', as he is chased in Turkey. There are no special effects in the scene, he really did it himself. Like almost every other crazy thing he has done in his movies (of course, lots of the times he ends up severely injured... while in the movie he immediately continues to run or whatever)... Medallion was a lot less realistic in this aspect (although to be fair, [[spoiler: people died from falls, it was the titular Medallion that brought them back to life with super-natural powers]]).

* This is done in RWBY by Neo. A few times, she's shown using her umbrella to slow her landing. This is eventually used against her, as activating her parasol on top of an airship whisked her away into the air.

* In Scott Westerfield's [[{{Uglies}} ''Pretties'']], Tally has a dream where she's a princess who gets out of a tower with a ParasolParachute. Even in a dream, it doesn't work like she thinks it should.

* The opening sequence on the MrMagoo tv cartoons has him blithely causing chaos while driving. A construction crane hurls his car into the sky and he slows his fall with an umbrella - landing on a roller coaster track.
* In the SofiaTheFirst episode "The Secret Library", Sofia uses this technique on Prince Roderick, hooking his belt with her Aunt Tilly's umbrella, causing him to fall off of his pegasus and descend to the ground, unharmed but irritated.

* ''Series/MythBusters'' tested it. As the Real Life example a couple entries up demonstrates, the best thing that can be said about trying this is that it makes you less likely to fall on your head, and more likely to land feet-first, injuring your legs instead of your brain.

* An early {{Classic Disney Short|s}} had MinnieMouse try this. The umbrella went inside out after a few seconds, causing [[ParachutePetticoat her skirt to puff out instead and slow her fall]].
