* In Series/RobotWars, the 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).

* ''Franchise/DragonBall:'' This was a valid way of winning in each TournamentArc...until the Cell Games, when Cell decides to [[StuffBlowingUp nuke the ring from orbit]] so they can keep fighting since Goku's made it so fun to play.
** Note that you have to touch anything outside the ring to be disqualified. Goku got away with using the Flying Nimbus to save himself once (since the judges were unclear on whether clouds counted as "outside the ring"), but was told he can't use it anymore after that; instead he learns to fly [[HeliCritter by spinning his tail like a helicopter]] and then more traditionally later on.
*** This rule was later brought up in the Buu Saga, but it wasn't necessarily a good thing as [[spoiler: it allowed one of the villains to perform an outright horrific NoHoldsBarredBeatdown by preventing his opponent (Gohan's girlfriend Videl) from touching the ground outside the arena.]]

* On a similar note, both ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' and ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40k}}'' prohibit units from leaving the battlefield normally, but if they do, they're counted as losses. The usual reason for this is [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere a failed Morale check]], or worse, a [[CarFu Tank Shock]]. (Unlike most scenarios that result in a Morale check, a tank is perfectly capable of following the fleeing unit across the map to keep "pushing" them and preventing them from regrouping -- memorably indicated in one ''Webcomic/TurnSignalsOnALandRaider'' strip as the tank ''physically'' pushing the hapless infantry off the table.) Fliers are the one exception, able to freely return from the game after leaving; since they have a minimum speed they have to move each round, and a maximum amount they can turn, they sometimes can't avoid leaving.

* 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 Wrestling/NigelMcGuinness failed to win the World Heavyweight Title from Adam Pearce due to Pearce being knocked over the top.
* Inverted with steel cage matches, as one of the ways to win such a match is to ''escape'' the cage. Sometimes, escaping through the entrance gate is an option, but it's generally considered [[RuleOfCool much cooler]] when the gate is padlocked after the wrestlers enter and the only way to escape is to ''climb'' the cage. There have been several instances throughout the history of the sport where one wrestler, typically a WrestlingMonster, will throw his opponent through the wall of the cage, giving that wrestler the victory. (This is generally done to keep the monster looking strong while his opponent gains the victory.)

* The TournamentArc of ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' has a similar "destroy the ring so you have to fight to the death" moment.
** Though in the Dark Tournament, you have to be outside the ring for ten seconds (or more accurately, ten counts) to be considered out. Most fights end with somebody dead or unconscious anyway because otherwise they can just climb back into the ring. The exception being [[BookDumb Kuwabara]] who spent most of his counts arguing with his teammate in his first fight, and was later tricked into being warped out of the stadium... [[WhatAnIdiot twice.]]

moment similar to the DBZ example.

* Being a manga on wrestling, this happens in ''Manga/TigerMask'' from time to time, the most notable instances being:
** In the Maskmen World Championship the fight between Tiger Mask and Gold Mask ends in a draw because they both get out of the ring, and while Tiger Mask knocks out his opponent he fails to climb back in time. Later in the final match, Tiger Mask and Great Zebra risk losing at one point due being both out of the ring while Mr. X was counting on them.
** During the fight with Black V for the Maskmen World Championship Tiger Mask defeats his opponent by ring-out, neutralizing [[KungFuProofMook his immunity to submission moves]] by slamming him on the concrete of the floor (the mattresses having been eliminated on Tiger Mask's request) while keeping the head pressed on his opponent's back.
** Tiger Mask's third finishing move, the Tiger V, ends with the opponent knocked out and thrown out of the ring for added humiliation, with them losing by ring out unless Tiger Mask drags them back on the ring.

** In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', the tournament between Universes 6 and 7 uses the Budokai's rules (as per Goku's suggestion), meaning the ring out rule is in effect here too. It ends up happening a lot, most importantly [[spoiler:during Goku's fight with Hit, where Goku rings ''himself'' out to protest Beerus and Champa's behavior. Hit returns the favor by throwing the fight ([[BadBadActing badly]]) against Monaka, which means Universe 7 wins the tournament.]]
