Some people try to claim that the unstoppable force would just bounce off and continue moving, albeit in a different direction (according to Newton's third law of motion, and convention of energy and momentum... you know: {{s|paceDoesNotWorkThatWay}}cience). For this reason, the question is sometimes phrased using the term "irresistible force" instead.

* Directly referenced in ''VideoGame/{{Tyranny}}'' while the player's Fatebinder is [[MushroomSamba high on hallucinogenic ink]]. Apparently, Rhogalus, Fatebinder of Lore, doesn't find the question enthralling.
--> '''Rhogalus:''' Absurd. In such a case, either [[StatingTheSimpleSolution the force is resistible or the object is moved.]]

* In 1986, the Washington Redskins, led by their vaunted offensive line, met defending Super Bowl champions the Chicago Bears, led by their explosive #1 ranked defense, in the opening round of the playoffs. The Redskins held the Bears defense to just two sacks, scored 20 unanswered points in the second half, and won the game 27-13.

* In a more metaphorical sense in ''WebComic/AskFriskAndCompany'', [[spoiler:Chara]] believes they can convince Frisk that [[spoiler:the world is irredeemable to get them on their side]], and Frisk believes they can turn it around and do the opposite. Flowey notes that both of them are "[[TheDeterminator pretty stubborn]]," and concludes "So who knows?" In the end, it'll just depend on who comes out more DETERMINED.

-->'''The Joker:''' Oh, you. [[PungeonMaster You just couldn't let me go]], could you? This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object. [[IncorruptiblePurePureness You are truly incorruptible, aren't you?]] Huh? You won't kill me out of some misplaced sense of self-righteousness. [[ItAmusedMe And I won't kill you because you're just too much fun.]] I think you and I are destined to do this forever.

* 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.
