This goes in both directions. A character or a building hit by a wave crashing over them often won't get as much damage as they would in real life, despite the fact that one cubic yard of water weighs nearly a ton. (A cubic meter of water weighs a metric ton.)

* In the Infinity Arc of ''Manga/SailorMoon'' and animated in ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal'', Ami throws herself out a window and into the pool below. Let's point out the fact that she threw herself out a window at Mugen Academy, many stories up, and the only reason she survived is that, on the way down, she transformed into Sailor Mercury.

** Done twice in ''Film/AViewToAKill'', first is when one of the executives gets ThrownFromTheZeppelin, and second is the scene where Max Zorin falls off the Golden Gate Bridge. Though thats the last the audience sees of him (ie. no body), its pretty clear he is killed.

Though thats that's the last the audience sees of him (ie. no body), its pretty clear he is killed. Naturally, since many San Franciscans will tell you that simply falling from the street level is fatal (the body is immediately pulverized and the victim - if still alive somehow - drowns in their own blood); Max fell from the ''very top'' of one of the towers.

'''Cassidy''': All right, I'll jump first/.
'''Sundance''': Nope.
'''Cassidy''': Then you jump first.
'''Sundance''': No, I said.
'''Cassidy''': What's the matter with you?!.
'''Sundance''': I can't swim!
'''Cassidy''': (Laughs hysterically) Why you crazy? The fall'll probably kill you!

** Of course, it should be noted that this trope may come into play with that video because it's water. Regardless of the fact that it's water, it's 10 tons of something.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' has River Song fall several stories down a building and land in the TARDIS swimming pool, apparently unharmed. Though it was the TARDIS swimming pool. The TARDIS is known for being psychic, and having the ability to alter its own shape, rooms, and properties such as gravity. It has also been known to help people stay alive.
** Partially subverted in ''HeavenSent'' where the Doctor falls from a great height but realizes the fact that he'll fall into water won't ensure his survival. He's right: the impact knocks him out, but he sustains no other injuries and wakes up before he drowns.
