* In Tim Burton's ''Film/{{Batman}}'', gangster Jack Napier fires at Batman, who is intervening in the botched Axis Chemicals job. Batman deflects the bullet with his armored gloves; Napier gets hit by the deflected bullet (which goes through his face and ostensibly results in the nerve damage to his mouth that causes [[SlasherSmile his permanent "smile"]]), tumbles over the railing in the typical way (taking '''a lot''' of steps to do so), and falls into a vat of acid (which permanently bleaches his skin). One quick trip to a back-alley plastic surgeon later, and Jack's dead...but The Joker lives.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'', "Planet of the Ood" - [[spoiler: Dr Ryder reveals he's a member of Friends of the Ood who infiltrated the slave trade and has been helping their HiveMind reassert itself. Mr Halpen promptly pushes him over a railing and into the enormous Ood Brain]].

* A variation occurs in ''VideoGame/TimeSplittersFuturePerfect'' in the level aboard the [[spoiler: underwater base]]. At a certain point, the player finds a chasm with buildings and walkways built into the cliff walls. In one area, shooting an [[ExplodingBarrels explosive barrel]] causes a mook to be launched over the railing, over the chasm, and landing on his crotch on the railing next to the player, at which point he slides off to his doom.

* During the Ebony Devil mini-arc in ''WebVideo/VaguelyRecallingJoJo'', Silver Chariot rapidly stabs Cursed Devo nearby a Singapore Hotel balcony. Cursed Devo goes on a rant on how he managed to curse Polnareff and falls off the railing before yelling, "Damn you, Polnareff!" DIO saw that and looked concerned for Cursed Devo's health. [[spoiler: Devo survives and has lunch with DIO and [[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney Franziska Von Karma]], which gets ruined because of Cursed Devo's synchronization with Ebony Devil.]]

** In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'''s Tanker chapter, there's a door in the hallway with the Raven action figure that opens to reveal a guard with his back to Snake, facing a railing. If shot, he'll fall over it. If you time it just right, [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything he'll fall onto one of the patrolling guards below, killing him too]].

* Many [[TheWestern Westerns]] feature this, although far from a majority, especially since many don't even take place in towns.

* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'': In Meet the Sniper, the BLU Demoman is hit in the eye by a piece of his bottle. He then stumbles around, blindly shooting grenades into the air, bumps into a railing and falls over it. In game, the KnockBack caused by certain weapons can also result in people taking fatal fall damage or falling into {{Bottomless Pit}}s.

* Being somewhere between an AffectionateParody and straight depictionof the SpaghettiWestern, ''VideoGame/SunsetRiders'' has plenty of these. Any {{Mook}} who is shot from a window or other high place will slump over the rail or sill and [[EverythingFades blink out of existence]] or plummet ''over'' the rail to the ground in a classically over-dramatic fashion.
