* {{Nickelodeon}}'s ''Series/LegendsOfTheHiddenTemple'' and ''[[Series/NickelodeonGuts Guts]]'' were made of this trope. They were {{game show}}s for children, so it would have been disturbing if the effect were more convincing.

* The boxes thrown between Bond and terrorists in ''WebVideo/DiamondsCut'' are obviously empty and wouldn�t hurt anyone, especially when both Bond and terrorists have guns.

* In ''Series/ElChapulinColorado'', it's not only rocks but literally '''everything'''. El Chapulín hits an enemy with a chair, and you can actually see the styrofoam right there.

* The pre-shows for the two former [[Ride/UniversalStudios Universal Studios Florida]] attractions, ''Ride/EarthquakeTheBigOne'' and ''Ride/{{Disaster}}'', had Styrofoam rocks being used as a way of demonstrating the many different special effects used in movies.

[[AC:Western Animation]]
* Played with on ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb''; When they are constructing their life-sized replica of Niagra Falls, Ferb (on the ground) picks up a boulder and throws it all the way to the top of the structure. Phineas says that [[LampshadeHanging even though he knew that that was papier-mâché]], the throw was ''still'' very impressive.

* In the ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' episode "Ethics", [[TheWorfEffect Worf's]] spine is broken when a cargo container falls on him. It seems almost humourous, since the way it falls and bounces indicates that it's so light it wouldn't even hurt a human, let alone a big sturdy Klingon.

Likewise in "The Perfect Mate", a Ferengi 'struggles' to lift a similar container that is clearly empty.

* The end of ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' has debris falling from the top of a skyscraper, and in one shot you can see a rock, which had supposedly tumbled from several hundred feet in the air, fall straight down and bounce off of a ''wooden'' police barrier.

* Back when Live Action TV really was live, this could be a problem as you couldn't just stop and fix things. On ''Series/CaptainVideo'' a struggle between the spunky sidekick and VillainOfTheWeek tipped over one of the 'rocks', leaving its hollow construction facing the camera while the two actors 'subtly' tried to put it back while carrying on their fight.
