* ''TopGear'' Stuntman has attempted a few of these, with mixed results. And the original Stig (of sainted memory) met his end when he did one of these off an aircraft carrier. He used [[NitroBoost nitrous]].

* ''Series/TheSuperMarioBrosSuperShow'': In "Toad Warriors", King Koopa and Toad face each other in a GameOfChicken to drive towards a ravine. Neither of them chicken out and they both jump their vehicles over the edge. While Toad lands on the other side, Koopa crashes into the cliff face.

** Similarly, ''Frank Thomas' Big Hurt'' has a ramp with a baseball glove. The player will get awards either for shooting one of the holes behind it or hitting the glove itself enough times.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Stuntman}}'', this is one of the stunts you pull off (including one film that's the DukesOfHazzard in all but name), and at some point you even have to ramp jump onto another moving vehicle.

* ''ThomasTheTankEngine'' has the titular character jump over a missing piece of track over a cliff in the special ''The Great Discovery''. The scene has been [[http://turbojuk.deviantart.com/art/The-Great-Discovery-81277551 lampooned]] for its lack of realism (though the show has been lacking this for a ''long'' time).

->''" So one afternoon, he set out to jump ten milk trucks. He nailed the take-off, but when he landed, something terrible happened. His front tire exploded like a cannonball, and his handle bars went straight through his head. Blood was everywhere. His teeth were ground down to a powder, and the front of his face exploded out the back of his skull. He died instantly... the next day."''

* In an episode of ''Series/HappyDays'' Fonzie sets a new world record by jumping over 14 garbage cans on his motorcycle. He makes it, but crashes after landing. He also does another ramp jump over a shark later in the series on a pair of water skis, [[JumpingTheShark naming a trope in the process]].[[note]]The reason the trope is named after this moment is because, in the episode where Fonzie crashes after jumping the garbage cans, he admitted the stunt was stupid and vowed not to do anything like it again. Jumping over the shark ignored this CharacterDevelopment and was treated in-universe as a good thing.[[/note]]
