** Then you get the cyborged Spades Slick, whose posterior ''is'' the jetpack.

* {{Averted}} with [[ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures Paperinik]]'s old rockets (dating back to the earliest classic stories): they're placed on the sides of his belt, thus avoiding to toast his butt ''and'' set his cape on fire. {{Justified}} as Gyro was already using that rocket belt for a while before giving it to Paperinik, hence he had all the time to work out any flaw.

* Played with in ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy''. The episode ''In Like Ed'' features a prototype jetpack made by Double D that has it's exhaust (which apparently jets out baking soda) go out above the shoulders; however, it still leads to Edd [[EpicFail having]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIGMGLODmjs an accident]].

** The USA did devise a working steerable rocket-pack that did what it should and did not kebab the user. It was dropped because it could only carry 21 seconds worth of flight time, the pilot was too obvious a target to ground fire, and because the heavy cumbersome hi-tech device did nothing that could not already be done as well, using low-tech resources and equipment. (For example, a parachute is cheaper, lighter, and proven technology as a means of disembarking men from aircraft in flight; ejector seats already existed for pilots to use in emergency; men could cross rivers more effectively using combat engineer bridges; and special forces could attack on the ground more effectively, without needing to fly.)

* Exploited in one installment of ''Magazine/{{Mad}} Magazine'' had a comic strip showing a pilot being sent to a hangar to report to the base's local MadScientist. The scientist tells him he's overqualified and gives him a jetpack, and is told to arch his back. [[spoiler: The pilot was actually meant to test a pair of bionic legs.]]

* Handwaved on ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' with Warren and Andrew's jetpacks. They popped out of backpacks on scissor-like extenders to prevent the trope, but would have probably ripped themselves off their mounts if they really had enough thrust to lift an average human into flight.
