* ''Series/BlakesSeven''. "Hostage" has a hilarious scene where [[TheDragon Travis]] and his two hired thugs flee in terror from an ambush involving rolling rocks that bounce across their bodies without squashing them. You'd think as they were in a BBCQuarry Blake and his team could find some genuine rocks.

* {{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.

* 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.
