* ''Series/PersonOfInterest'' had a more sensible version when a man does a DestinationDefenstration into a crate of styrofoam packing pellets. Even then he's stunned for several minutes (and would probably have broken his neck smashing through the plate glass).

*Eddie, the lead kidnapper in ''Film/BabysDayOut'', gets knocked semi-unconscious and dropped off a building and into a garbage bin at one point while he and his two co-crooks are chasing after the titular baby. He survives, presumably partly due to being only half conscious and having a bunch of objects to break his fall on the way down.

* This trope can occasionally be seen being played straight on wrestling whenever there's a backstage brawl. One example is when Wrestling/TheUndertaker had Wrestling/HulkHogan tied to the back of his motorcycle and was dragging him around backstage only for Hogan to go crashing into a pile of empty cardboard boxes, while the announcers played up how painful that apparently would be.
