* Too many instances to be counted in ''Franchise/StarTrek'', both in movies and series. It seems to happen preferably -- although not exclusively -- to Klingons. ("firefight" might mean actually "ship-to-ship battle" in this case…) When the ''Enterprise'' self-destructs and the bridge is exploding around him, one Klingon is thrown violently over the railing in the middle. Does it count as a railing kill [[TakingYouWithMe when even the railing doesn't survive?]]

* The {{Trope Nam|ers}}ing film is ''Film/SpaceMutiny'', which really beat this to death. [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 Mike and the Bots]] practically made it a DrinkingGame. Well, they couldn't drink, but they did shout "RAILING KILL!" [[RunningGag every time one happened]]. [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]] features another railing kill in their treatment of ''The Deadly Bees,'' where the villain unleashes his [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin deadly bees]] inside his home; in defense, the heroine starts a fire, driving the villain upstairs. He dies when he falls over the railing and into the inferno. Mike quips, "Well, now, you can't blame ''that'' on the bees."

* Invoked in ''WebComic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', when Elan uses an illusion spell to [[BadBadActing somewhat unconvincingly]] [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0455.html fool the goblin army]] into believing they've killed the PC party. Since the illusion won't leave corpses behind, it has to drop out of sight to be believable.

* Enemies in the original ''VideoGame/SystemShock'' tend to gravitate towards nearby ledges when killed (and can crush anybody they fall on), presumably to show off the physics engine.
* Alan O'Neil in the second ''VideoGame/MetalSlug'' falls off a ledge and is promptly swallowed by a whale when he's defeated.

One of the guards is shot as he crashes through the door to the staircase leading down to the floor, and his momentum causes him to crash through an oddly-placed gate in the railing...leading to open air.
