* In ''RedFaction: Guerilla'', this can be done to ludicrous extremes combined with actual cool building destruction.

* Ludmilla Tourischeva, galactically successful Soviet gymnast in the early-mid '70s, executing her uneven bars routine for the World Cup in 1975. As she is wrapping it up and just about to dismount, the bars [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9gBk0P9yEc suddenly start collapsing]]. She flies off the apparatus and hits her dismount as the bars collapse completely. Tourischeva salutes the judges and strolls away without batting an eyelid or looking behind her. And then goes on to sweep the All-Around and all four event finals. ''Her badass broke the uneven bars.''

* In ''Film/RogueOne'', K2SO catches a thrown grenade, then blithely tosses it over his shoulder to blow up a squad of Imperial Stormtroopers, all the time walking towards Jyn and Cassian while bitching about being left behind with the ship. Granted, he's a droid and could probably calculate the risks a lot faster than a human could, but it's still pretty awesome.

* Subverted and satirized in ''Film/TheOtherGuys''. "How they walk away in movies without flinching when it explodes behind them!!? There's no way!! The movie industry is completely irresponsible for the way they portray explosions!!"

* In the pilot episode of ''Series/{{Smith}}'', although the protagonists are doing an UnflinchingWalk away from their exploding getaway boat, the scene is rendered decidedly more depressing than Badass by the choice of background music (ImogenHeap 's "Hide and Seek") and the fact that the boat contained the corpse of a colleague who didn't survive the heist.

* [[SatireParodyPastiche Parodied]] Parodied in the ISARTS Digital short ''Creature from the Lake''. Shelby tries to do this while filming herself using dynamite to blow up the lake monster that ate her boss, but the shockwave from the explosion causes her to stumble and fall over.
