This often happens when the hero uses his feet or [[TakeMyHand free hand]] in an attempt to regrip or otherwise gain leverage, but the force he creates causes a rock or a part of a cliff to break off. Other times, an item on the character's person will fall, such as a wallet or cell phone. If it's the DamselInDistress, then her high heels are also likely to be lost this way (Particularly if she has a lot of running to do in subsequent scenes).

** ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'': When Luke falls down the airshaft and he's left hanging onto the bottom of Cloud City, we see ''something'' falling into the atmosphere below. It doesn't appear to be his lost hand or his weapon, though. (This is confirmed in the [[Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse Expanded Universe]]; the Empire recovers his hand and lightsaber, using them to make a clone of Luke and, er, [[{{Pun}} arm]] him.)

* Jackson's ''[[Film/TheLordOfTheRings The Fellowship of the Ring]]'' film: a torch, dropped by Boromir, on the way to the Bridge of Khazad-dûm.
** Used comedically at the beginning of the extended edition of ''[[Film/TheLordOfTheRings The Two Towers]]'', when Frodo and Sam are climbing down a rope into fog. A box slips from Sam's pack. Sam cries out in panic. Frodo assumes that the box must contain something important, so he tries to catch it and falls off the rope. [[spoiler: For a moment we think that Frodo has fallen to his death, but then the ground turns out to be just a few feet down, invisible in the fog. The precious box turns out to have only salt and seasonings, in case they should have a roast chicken some night]].
*** Which to two Hobbits lost hundreds of miles from the Shire, attempting to get to {{Mordor}}, ''is'' the most important thing in the world. Besides, they do use it anyway.
--> '''Frodo''': [[spoiler: [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming It's a little bit of home]]]]
