* Due to the [[RuleOfCool cinematic nature]] of the game, any powerful attack in ''{{Exalted}}'' stands a chance of knocking an enemy back a few feet. Magical effects can extend this to dozens of feet, or miles.
** Note that due to the supernatural durability of most characters and the ease of the roll required to prevent this, it rarely happens.
* Any sufficiently powerful impact will send the target flying in ''{{GURPS}}''.
** The ''Supers'' book suggests that it's genre appropriate to give the "double knockback" enhancement to any and all attacks.
* {{Champions}} refers to this as ''knockback'', and has advantages and disadvantages that can increase or decrease it. And rules for calculating additional damage from it, or avoiding part or all of said damage.
** Perhaps ironically, in this game knockback from being hit by a "proper" martial arts attack is by default ''less'' than what might result from a plain old random punch or kick by the exact same opponent. (Of course, both the [[GameMaster GM]] and the players have ways of getting around that -- the former by changing the ground rules for the campaign, the latter by giving their characters appropriate tricks and powers.)

* ''Every single fight'' in ''WebAnimation/SuperMarioBrosZ'' sees each combatant being punched, kicked, thrown or otherwise sent flying hundreds of feet in any given direction. Usually the victim then crashes into a wall, which may or may not break. In the really extreme cases, they are sent flying through ''several'' walls or even ''hills''. Everyone in the cast seems to be [[NighInvulnerability Nigh Invulnerable]]. Of course, this ''is'' a ''Manga/DragonBall Z'' semi-parody we're dealing with here.
* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', Yang uses [[MixAndMatchWeapon shotgun gauntlets]] and has SuperStrength which means she punches fully grown men across the room in her introductory trailer.

* In ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited'', taking a punch from one of the more powerful characters easily sent the victim several miles or further (this is probably what is expected, considering some punches are capable of breaking the sound barrier).
** Best example is when Franchise/{{Superman}} delivers a punch on {{ComicBook/Darkseid}}. This is after Superman gives his WorldOfCardboardSpeech and reveals he's ready to cut loose on the one person in the universe he can hit ''at full power''...
*** To put this in perspective, with ''one punch'', Darkseid was sent sailing through ''seven'' skyscrapers, and ''kept going!'' The only thing that stopped him was Superman giving him a MeteorMove midflight.
** Superman does this alot.
* The ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueCrisisOnTwoEarths'' movie had a ''lot'' of collateral damage caused by this kind of thing. It's just as well the building where the League first fought the Crime Syndicate was pretty much condemned anyway, given the amount of it that was reduced to rubble by things like Superman throwing Superwoman through walls.

** Bruce's blows could be so strong that stunt men were sometimes wary about working with him for fear that he would seriously injure them ''completely on accident''. For instance, in the famous Enter The Dragon scene where Bruce kicks O'Hara off his feet and into a crowd of spectators, one of the stunt men was bowled over with such force that he broke his arm.
