* Subverted in a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWKRy9jiBzw 1976 commercial for Kellogg's Raisin Bran]]. One defective raisin is considered not sweet enough to qualify for the signature 2 scoops, and gets jettisoned in the air by Sunny. The hapless raisin parachutes to the ground with an umbrella that quickly fails.

* 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.

** Played straight in the movie when he opened a parasol from his hat while falling from a skyscraper with a damsel holding him.

* ''Film/MaryPoppins'' - Mary P could somehow ''propel herself upwards'' with one, as well. Then again, [[AWizardDidIt she's got magic]].
* JackieChan does this at some point in ''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]]).
* Played straight in the Film/JamesBond movie ''Film/ForYourEyesOnly'', when Bond uses a poolside umbrella to slow his fall when jumping off a wall. It's also useful as a momentary visual shield to avoid bullets.
* Though not exactly a parasol, ''[[Film/ShortCircuit Short Circuit 2]]'' has Johnny 5 use a built-in hang glider to slow his fall from a skyrise building. Read that again: a multi-hundred pound robot breaks his fall with a dinky hang glider small enough to fold into a standard-sized toolbox, all while falling upside-down from several stories of a New York high rise. To be fair, they somehow had to spice up the previous scene from the first movie, in which he saved himself with a common parachute.

* While falling out of the spaghetti twister in ''CloudyWithAChanceOfMeatballs'', Flint grabbed hold of an umbrella, only for it to turn inside out after a few seconds.
* The conclusion of ''Film/PracticalMagic''.
* Near the climax of the ''Film/InspectorGadget'' movie, Gadget and his love interest are plummeting from the top of a skyscraper, so he begins shouting out every possible gadget he can think of that might slow their fall or soften their landing (after he tries "parachute" he glances up for a second because it's actually plausible), eventually trying "parasol", which works. The parachute does open - after they've landed, providing only privacy for an intimate moment.

* The music video for the ''ShaunTheSheep'' theme tune has one of the sheep jumping off the roof of the farmer's house using an umbrella.
* In ''ThePerilsOfPenelopePitstop'' episode "Jungle Jeopardy", a single small umbrella is enough to lower the entire Ant Hill Mob ''and'' Chuggaboom safely to the ground.
* At the end of ''RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer'', an elf onboard SantaClaus' sleigh actually gives all of the misfit toys umbrellas to soften their landing after being dropped from the sleigh... ...except for the toy bird that can swim but cannot fly. He refuses to give the bird an umbrella, and ''pushes him off the sleigh instead!''

* In ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'', "Seer No Evil", Chip fell out of a window, but had his fall slowed by an umbrella. (Of course, thanks to the square-cube law, even a fall lacking in increased drag would have perhaps only left him momentarily dazed, so the "flying horse" wouldn't have exactly saved him...)

* The music video "Tonight Tonight" by Music/TheSmashingPumpkins (an homage to the 1902 film ''Le Voyage dans la Lune'') features the two characters using parasols to slow their fall to the moon's surface. (Well, the lady uses a parasol. The gentleman uses a more masculine umbrella.) It becomes a ParasolOfPain when the Moonmen attack.
