* Played with in ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' where [[BigBad Vandal Savage]] is shot and falls off a balcony...but never seems to hit the ground (or if he did, he got up and ran away right afterwards). [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane Whether this is due to his mostly-immortal status or some kind of magic teleportation is never revealed.]]

* The player can do this to enemies in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'', ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', and ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' due to the [[WreakingHavok Havok engines]] used for physics. Sometimes enemies, especially those hit with weapons with high KnockBack, will fall back over a railing... sometimes, quirks of the physics engine will cause dead enemies to fling themselves twenty feet horizontally and over conveniently low railings, [[CherryTapping even if you killed them with a BB gun]]. Given the mixture of seriousness and silliness inherent in the games and their setting, this isn't quite as immersion-breaking or out of place as it might seems.

* A variation occurs in ''VideoGame/TimeSplitters: Future Perfect'' 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.

* The computer game ''VideoGame/CounterStrike: Condition Zero - Deleted Scenes'' features one guy on a roof who, if shot, will fall off and be impaled on a fence. To be honest, this trope is one of that game's biggest "features".

* In the ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'' novel ''Ethan of Athos'', the heroine shoots a mook with a ''non-lethal'' stunner--but he happens to be standing on a high catwalk at the time, resulting in a more literal than usual example of the trope.
-->'''Quinn''': Gee, I feel really bad about that. I've never killed a man by accident before. Unprofessional.
