* Subverted in ''{{Eyeshield 21}}''. With only a few seconds left on the clock and with the Devilbats behind, they have to force themselves out of the field in order to stop the clock. In one special case, Monta [[spoiler: used his catching skills to grab the out of bounds and stop the clock.]]

* Series/RobotWars.
** Ditto the show's video game adaptation.

* Series/RobotWars.
** Ditto
In Series/RobotWars, the show's arena had two walls: a fully enclosed one to protect the audience from shrapnel, and an inner wall a couple feet high
which protected the outer wall from being directly hit by robots' weapons. A gap of several feet separated them, allowing the installation of tracks for remotely operated cameras inside the arena which couldn't have their view blocked by the steel framework supporting the lexan wall panels. This also had the unintended consequence that a sufficiently powerful flipper robot could throw an opponent over the inner wall and defeat it. In later series, most robots could run upside-down or self-right, and were durable enough to not suffer much internal damage from being flipped, rendering the original purpose of flippers almost useless, so flippers ended up relying on RingOuts to win. After the televised series ended, spinners were banned in the heavyweight class due to the touring events not having the budget for arenas that could withstand them, so flippers became extremely dominant. Note that in robotic combat, a RingOut is usually reversed to as an OOTA (Out Of The Arena).
** You can also win this way in most
video game adaptation.games based on robotic combat, including adaptations of Robot Wars as well as titles like RobotArena2 that aren't based on any particular event.
** YMMV for other events, especially outside of Europe. Some events, like Series/BattleBots in its original televised run, have no real gap between the inner and outer walls, with the lower portion of the walls simply being a more durable but non-transparent material, making a RingOut impossible. In other events, like Robogames, the gap between inner and outer walls is narrow enough that while robots in the smaller weight classes can easily be thrown out, larger ones may only fit at a certain angle or not at all, and can slide back into the arena. In others, like the reboot of Series/Battlebots and many events in small weight classes, a RingOut is only possible in certain, relatively small areas.
** In a few "Sumo-style" events like Robot Battles, the arena is a raised platform which robots can be pushed off of, making RingOuts THE primary winning method. It also helps that due to the lack of a lexan wall most of the really damaging weapons are banned.

Added DiffLines:

* Several boss battles in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' take places in arenas where falling off the edge is a OneHitKill on you with no way for your healers to revive you. The battle against Ultros and Typhon has a non lethal version where getting blown out of the ring immobilizes you for a few moments before you're allowed to jump back into the fight and if the entire party is shoved out of the ring, it counts as a loss.

* The [[MartialArtsAndCrafts Martial Arts Gymnastics]] tournament in ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf''. Notable in that the ring can move on command.

* The [[MartialArtsAndCrafts Martial Arts Gymnastics]] tournament in ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf''. Notable in that the ring can move on command. Once the people ''under'' the ring were forced to run for it, taking the ring with them, the fight continued on the ringposts. [[spoiler:It ended with Ranma breaking Kodachi's post, dropping her to the floor while she desperately clung to the broken halves.]]

** ''VirtuaFighter''. In later installments you have to smash a wall or two first; in the first few installments, before EdgeGravity, it was very easy to ring yourself out by mistake.

* The TournamentArc of ''YuYuHakusho'' has a similar "destroy the ring so you have to fight to the death" moment.

* The Battle Royal, where you must toss your opponents out of the ring (over the top rope only) to win. And there are a lot of variations on it (WWE's ''Royal Rumble'', where the entrants enter in sequence, is probably the most well known). In normal matches, on the other hand, a wrestler who's out of the ring for 10 seconds (regardless of whether he went over the top rope) is counted out and loses.

* The Wrestling/NationalWrestlingAlliance has a case where causing a ring out results in a victory for the one tossed, as throwing the opponent over the top rope is grounds for {{disqualification|inducedvictory}}. Fans at a Wrestling/RingOfHonor show actually {{c|rowdchant}}hanted "[[Wrestling/DustyRhodes Dusty Finish]]" when Nigel [=McGuinness=] failed to win the World Heavyweight Title from Adam Pearce due to Pearce being knocked over the top.

** The ''SuperSmashBros'' series is '''all about''' this trope. The means of defeating the opponent most of the time is to force him or her off the stage, which usually has [[InterestingSituationDuel open boundaries as well as native hazards]]. Additionally, they can be knocked into the sky and turned into a [[ATwinkleInTheSky star]].
