* The enemies from the Umbloda family in several ''VideoGame/{{Pikmin}}'' games manage to pull that on the Pikmin. They use their OverlyLongTongue and snag the Pikmins from above and and subsequently ingest them. I might not come to a shock to the player, who has plenty of time to see the Slurkers coming, but to the Pikmins themselves...

* In ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'' and ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'', this is again one of the standard moves. Batman snatches a mook and leaves him hanging upside down and yelling for help. For an achievement, Batman can then use a Batarang to cut the rope, dropping the guy onto any friends who came to investigate.

* Heroic example in ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'': in one episode, a crook is using the bathroom when the window above his urinal opens, Batou leans in and gives a shit-eating grin as the crook freaks out, then grabs him and pulls him out window.

* True to its source material, this can happen to the player character in ''VideoGame/AlienIsolation''. Spacecraft/station designers in this universe seem to ''love'' including tons of three-foot-square ventilation ducts, many of which lead to ceiling openings. Keep an eye on the ceiling vents; if you see a stream of drool coming from one, stepping under it is...[[{{Understatement}} ill advised]].
