* One of the many things the ''Wiki/SCPFoundation'' keeps track of is [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-225 SCP-225]]: an immovable object, and an unstoppable object. They ''really'' do not want to find out what would happen if these two objects ever collided. They're drawing up planetary evacuation plans just in case.

* Similarly, a Mensa puzzle book from 1991 uses this riddle as one of its logic puzzles. The answer is [[spoiler:an impossible event. Logically, the existence of one disproves the existence of the other by definition, and therefore the two cannot exist at the same time, therefore such an event will never occur.]]

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/4499696/1/Blink Blink]]'', the Kyuubi tries to destroy the Shinigami's seal and learns what happens when an unstoppable force (himself) meets an immovable object (the seal): time stops until he stops trying. Because Naruto's immune to it, he gains the moniker of "Blink" because if you close your eyes, even to blink, when facing him they'll never open again.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/ShinobiOfTheHighSeas'' both Naruto and Lucci are surprised when a kunai imbued with wind chakra cuts the latters hand. Naruto because it didn't take his hand off; Lucci because it did any damage at all.
* The end of Naruto's and Lee's fight in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9920512/7/Reaching-for-a-Dream Reaching for a Dream]]'' consists of Lee opening the Chakra Gates and pummeling Naruto who's forced to use a defensive technique that greatly reinforces his body but leaves him functionally immobile.

* Given the [[OverNineThousand power levels]] that get slung around in ''{{Exalted}}'', it usefully has a rule for what happens when a perfect attack comes up against a perfect defense: Defense ''always'' wins.

* Discussed in SaintSeiya during Seiya's early fight with Shiryu and even referred to as such. In a twist, Shiryu's in possession of ''both''; his shield too strong for Seiya to breach while also having considerably greater raw strength at his disposal. Seiya ultimately solves the conundrum by tricking Shiryu into attacking him in such a way that when he dodges, he ends up punching into his own shield. [[spoiler: The shield breaks, but Shiryu also nearly breaks his hand in the process and is forced to continue the fight without his Cloth.]]

* Grant Morrison's ''ComicBook/AllStarSuperman'' has Superman being asked this question. His solution? "They surrender." [[note]][[FridgeLogic at which point they're no longer unstoppable and immovable, defeating the point of the question]][[/note]] [[spoiler:Ironically enough, he seems to have gotten this from the back of a newspaper he read only a few moments before.]]
