*Back in the early days of baseball, around 1885 or so, St. Louis third baseman Arlie Latham pulled this manuever, avoiding a tag by Chicago first baseman Cap Anson, leaping over Anson (who had the ball in his hand and who had the basepath blocked off) and running successfully to first base.

* Former outlaw [=McCree=] of ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' has Combat Roll as one of his abilities. Interesting in that it automatically reloads his [[RevolversAreJustBetter Peacemaker]], allowing him to chain together nasty rapid-fire combos with his skill that lets him automatically unload all of his remaining bullets into an enemy. He can kill most non-Tank heroes in seconds this way.

** The meaning behind this training is to train you to properly wield and handle your body so you won't get disoriented in real combat situation. (They can get pretty chaotic) It's pretty unlikely that your line of duty will actually put you in position where the only way to save the day is backflip trench shovel throw at the last terrorist in the room and more like if you'll have to, say, jump out of exploding vehicle (more likely scenario) your body will know how to land due to extensive training.

** ''StreetFighter'': JokeCharacter Dan Hibiki actually teaches people to use Unnecessary Combat Rolls in his horrid fighting style, Saikyo. In some games (mostly the [[CapcomVsWhatever Versus series]]) Dan can drop all of his limit bars into a super taunt, which is just him rolling around and taunting at super speed with a glowing image trail. Parodying the KOF roll is part of his schtick as a SNK parody.

* Rorscarch in ''WatchmenTheHighSchoolYears'' does this ''badly'' when enters a room to interrogate Adrian Veidt. And it gets absolutely hilarious when he trails Dan- by doing nothing but combat rolls.

* In the ''VideoGame/TimeSplitters'' series (in particular ''[=TimeSplitters=] 2''), computer controlled characters sometimes do this (they can't even fire, so the reason is anyone's guess). [[SecretAIMoves There is no way whatsoever for human players to do this though.]]

* In ''Film/Watchmen'', When Silk Spectre jumps out of an airship onto a rooftop, she does a combat roll despite only dropping a few feet and landing perfectly in CombatStilletos.

** In ''VideoGame/HaloReach'', the "Evade" armor ability available to Elites in multiplayer means that players can do this trope as often as they'd like! It's a very useful ability, as it can save your butt if you run into too many enemies at once, are about to get hit by the game's different {{BFG}}s, or, as players figured out in Forge mode/Custom games, [[GoodBadBugs set the speed higher than normal and fly across Forge World in your glitching glory!]] It's a good way to cover ground quickly, too.\\
While the Evade covers less distance than Sprint if both are used until they are depleted, it covers the distance ''faster'', which is important when fighting vehicles or someone with a power weapon. Try sprinting away from a rocket's blast radius. Probably won't work out.
