* ''TransformersCybertron'' has Hot Shot do this in one episode to cross a canyon after Ransack and Crumplezone destroy the bridge. The ramp in question? Optimus Prime's ladder/cannons.

* ''VideoGame/{{Burnout}} Paradise''. Jumps, flips, spins, rolls! One of the {{Collection Sidequest}}s is to land every "super jump" in the city.

* ''SinCity'' cars ramp off cliffs, hills, and apparently jump just by going down the street. This is obviously RuleOfCool.

* In ''{{Driver}} 2'', you have to jump your car onto a boat on at least two occasions. In the "Caine's Compound" mission, you jump a drawbridge at the end.

* In ''{{Mercenaries}}'', a bridge over a river in the [[spoiler:final Ace Contract mission]] is destroyed by the North Koreans. When destroyed, a section of the bridge [[BenevolentArchitecture tilts 45 degrees upwards]]. Considering the mercenary [[SuperDrowningSkills can't swim]], well...

* In ''{{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.

* An old Windows screensaver had a motorcyclist jump over a random number of school buses. On occasion, the bus jumps over a row of motorcycles.

** In a lot of these examples, the 'leap' is possible..... just not the landing. They went through a lot of General Lees as I recall.

** Naturally, one of these jumps was in TheFilmOfTheSeries. The Series/MythBusters demonstrated that the claimed jump distance was entirely possible. Driving away, on the other hand ....

Unfortunately (as proven by ''Series/MythBusters''), a Ramp Jump is nowhere ''near'' as easy to execute as it looks in fiction: The car should ideally land with all four wheels hitting the ground simultaneously, but in RealLife, the vehicle will tend to pitch downwards in flight, causing it to hit the ground nose first (instead of on all fours) with an impact force similar to any other head-on impact: Severe damage to the car's engine and frame (doubly so for sports cars, whose frames are specifically ''designed'' to crumple on impact[[note]]because softening the blow of impact makes the crash less deadly to the driver/passengers[[/note]]), which leaves the car in a more or less inoperable state.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Videogame/PlanetSide 2'' has many natural ramps for the [[BigBadassRig Sunderer]], Flash [[CoolBike quadbike]], and [[CoolCar Harasser]] to take. The Harasser and Flash are capable of rolling mid-air, but tend to uncontrollably nosedive in prolonged flight, while the Sunderer just kinda flops and rolls over before exploding. Vehicles are capable of surviving surprisingly long falls, but they will outright explode if they hit something while moving too fast. The Flash has a unique type of NitroBoost that effectively acts like a rocket, allowing it to alter its trajectory mid-flight.
