* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': Used on [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS8E3TheHomerTheyFall "The Homer They Fall"]] to describe the boxing bout between Homer (who has been discovered [[MadeOfIron to have a reinforced brain case and is theoretically knockout-proof]]) and returning heavyweight champion Friedrich Tatum. Ultimately, this trope is defied -- Tatum is capable of punching so hard that Homer is on the verge of being knocked out (or even getting pummeled to death) ''[[EpicFail within ten seconds of the first round starting]]''.

* One of the many things the ''Wiki/SCPFoundation'' keeps track of is [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-225 SCP-225]]: an immovable[[labelnote:*]]well, technically it's moving, it just stays in exactly the same place relative to the Earth at all times[[/labelnote]] object, and an unstoppable object that roughly traces the Earth's orbit and occasionally collides with it or the Moon. 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.
** By their own admission, that might not be enough: ''Since all tests thus far have shown that neither SCP-225-1 nor SCP-225-2 can be damaged or moved by any means known, the possibility also exists that neither object would be annihilated, halted, or altered from their course even by contact with the other. If this is true, then a collision between SCP-225-1 and SCP-225-2 has the potential to [[[ThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow DATA EXPUNGED]]].''

* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', the legendary Third Raikage possesses an impregnable defense and indefensible offense through using his lightning chakra cloak. The only way he could be wounded was to turn his attacks on himself.

* The best offense and best defense in the NFL have met in the Super Bowl exactly six times. Five of those times, the team with the best defense has won, including two soul-crushing {{Curb Stomp Battles}} in 1984 and 2013. The one exception was in the 1989 season, and that 49ers team paired their high-octane offense with the league's third-best defense, resulting in what is still the biggest blowout in Super Bowl history.

* ''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': The phrase is used to describe the ForeverWar between Order and Chaos. The former is the ultimate force of stability and the later is the ultimate force of change, and when they collide, you get a conflict that doesn't end. However, Lady Chaos the TopGod is this setting so she (and by extension, her mortal servants) generally have the upper hand.

* Referenced several times in ''{{Manga/Jormungand}}'' using the Chinese style pike vs shield version. Willey details the original parable in one of Jonah's lessons while the opening song for the first anime season "Borderland" contains the phrase "pike and shield" in English as a short hand for idea in the lyrics.
