While visually stunning, this is impractical. Even if it's secured by rebars or other metal, rock just doesn't have the flexibility needed to flex in such a manner, and it's usually solid rock or concrete these brutes latch onto; ever try to grab a handful of dirt and not have it break up in your hands? Unless it's permafrosted or solidified into some kind of clay, it's impossible, but these bruisers don't have that problem. Then again, they're mighty enough to ignore the laws of physics, anyway.

* In the first appearance of MarvelComics's most famous {{Kaiju}}, the Chinese dragon Fin Fang Foom, Fin attacks a bunch of Chinese soldiers by grabbing up a chunk of the Great Wall of China and snapping it like a whip. This makes no sense but is [[RuleOfCool totally awesome.]]

* Rask from ''VideoGame/AtlasReactor'' has a move called 'upheaval' that does this. It's unique amongst the game's forced movement attacks in that it tosses foes away from him instead of [[YouWillNotEvadeMe pulling them to him]].
