%% * ''WesternAnimation/{{Popeye}} the Sailor'', anyone? Popeye did this to Bluto many, many times.
* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'':
** In ''Justice League Unlimited'', 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.
** The ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueCrisisOnTwoEarths'' movie has 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.
* {{ComicBook/Darkseid}} himself did this to Superman in the final episode of ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries''.

pretty much all the time after eating spinach.
* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'':
Franchise/DCAnimatedUniverse:
** ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'': The episode "Love Is A Croc" has Batman punch Killer Croc about a hundred feet across a spacious room at a power plant Superman-style that sent Croc crashing against pipework. The enraged Croc attempts to retaliate by ripping out a piece of pipe, but it was a steaming, hot water pipe, which erputs a near-fatal burst of water that delivers Croc right back to Batman's feet.
** ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'': SelfDemonstrating/{{Lobo}} does this to Superman at one point, and Superman obliges, even sending him flying up to Lex Luthor's tower and crashing in it. {{ComicBook/Darkseid}} himself also does this to Superman.
** ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'': In "Disappearing Inque", [[spoiler:Bruce Wayne]] uses a PoweredArmor to confront Inque and save [=Terry McGinnis=]. At one point he punches Inque with it, sending her fly accross the arena they're in.

* Exaggerated in the FinalBoss of ''MadWorld''--in the last potental power struggle, the last hit sends the boss flying from the ring you're in all the way to the audience stands. A helicopter then picks up the boss from the stands, now dazed, and lets you kill him off for real.

* Practically everyone Creator/BruceLee sparred with regularly said he did this to them. The famous "One-Inch Punch", while not exactly sending someone flying across the room, would knock them back several feet which is an impressive distance when you realize that Bruce Lee's fist quite literally [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin only moved an inch.]] He also had a "Six-Inch Punch" [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pC6vRJsBZEg that could knock a person back about 15 feet.]] That's after being softened by the cushion his demonstration partner held between them, presumably to avoid getting his ribs broken. 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 ''Film/EnterTheDragon'' 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.

* Tsukika Izayoi of MugenSouls series has a habit of unintentionally doing this to people, especially the person she cares about the most,Shirogane. She is well aware of this, and being a YamatoNadeshiko in all but marriage, her incredible strength actually is a source of depression for her.

* In the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' series, as the objective of the fight IS to send your foe [[RingOut flying off the stage]]. In fact, if an opponent's damage meter is high enough (generally about 300%, or in Sudden Death mode), even bouncing them off the ground will knock them off the screen ''so fast'' that you can barely see it, much less follow it. As an added bonus, this can also be used for the "Corpse Missile" attack, allowing one to not only fire their opponent, but the guy s/he slams into: this is mentioned as a bonus in ''Melee''; in which case, it's called a "Dead-Weight KO".

The more damage you take, the more each blow knocks you around, and once your damage goes over 100%, the knockbacks increase significantly.

*Happens to Paul several times in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'':
**At the White Tower, when Lieyla of the “Terrible Trio” walks right up to him and unexpectedly socks him, sending him flying several dozen feet back. Being NighInvulnerable and also specifically built to get a thrill from absorbing energy, all this does is simultaneously annoy him and make him feel good. (Being an ActualPacifist and terrified of harming someone, he doesn't even try to hit her back.) When he bounces back to ask her why she did that, she does it again.
**In Boidan Valley, when the AnimalMecha Lord Equus kicks him across the valley. He's already surfeited with energy from being hit by lightning twice, so the kick incapacitates him with pleasure.
