* River Song has done this at least twice in ''Series/DoctorWho.'' More elaborate then most examples. She leaves a message at some point in time, telling the Doctor her exact coordinates and that she needs help. When she jumps [[UpToEleven (out of a spaceship airlock and into the utter vacuum of interstellar space!)]], the TARDIS is right there waiting for her.

\n* ''Series/StrangerThings'' has this in the sixth episode: [[spoiler: when [[KidsAreCruel a pair of bullies]] try to force Mike to jump off a cliff, Eleven [[MindOverMatter makes him levitate]] until he's back on the top, safe and sound.]]

* Sorta used in Film/TheBoyWhoCouldFly, when [[spoiler: Eric and Milly throw themselves off a rooftop to escape the people who want Eric back to the hospital. What marks the difference is that this moment is what confirms how Eric ''actually'' can fly, something that the movie itself had not showed him do.]]

* One inversion in ''VideoGame/DyingLight'': the only to get into the [[TutorialLevel "rite of passage"]] to be a runner is to JUMP OF A FUCKING [[StealthPun CRANE]] onto bags of garbage below. The teacher Rahim demonstrates...then complains about he leg after landing. His and Crane's dialogue afterwards makes it a [[CrowningMomentofFunny]].
-->'''Rahim''': Ahhh... My leg!!
-->'''Crane''': Oh, shit! Hold on, I'll get someone to help!
-->'''Rahim''': Haha, I'm just fucking with you! Now come on and jump, you big baby!
-->'''Crane''': Christ on a crutch...

* Extra-subverted (if there is such a thing) in that it's left very nebulous for several episodes (to say nothing of an entire between-season hiatus) whether or not he actually survived the fall, [[spoiler: and TheReveal is that he didn't actually survive, and his return comes at a steep cost.]]

* In ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartII'', Biff has Marty cornered on the roof of the hotel and is stunned when Marty calmly steps off the roof. A few seconds later, he floats back into view, standing on top of the flying [=DeLorean=].

* Subverted in ''Film/TerminatorSalvation''. Marcus Wright drives a truck onto a bridge over a high canyon, but they're attacked by a flying Hunter Killer and the truck slams through the guardrail, knocking Kyle Reese and another child out the door. As they plunge into the canyon to their deaths, they're caught in mid-air by the giant robot they'd been fleeing earlier. So yes, their lives have been saved...[[FateWorseThanDeath for the short term]].



* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''. In "Rise", the VillainOfTheWeek throws Tuvok off a SpaceElevator tens of thousands of feet above the ground, smugly goes back inside and locks the door. Then we see Tuvok has grabbed onto part of the elevator that's sticking out. Problem is, he can't get past the door, and the elevator is climbing into the upper atmosphere where there's no air to breathe.
