- Straight: When Emperor Evulz tries to kill Alice with Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies, he's shocked to see her racing towards him across the same falling rocks he just dropped on her.

- Inverted: Alice has been blown into the air by an explosion, and runs back through the shrapnel to get back down to earth.
- Subverted: Alice runs up the debris until she realises how impossible that is, at which point she starts falling.
- Double Subverted: ???
- Parodied: Alice and Bob stop running to have a brief conversation about how impossible it is that they're doing what they're doing, before deciding to just not worry about it too much.
- Zig Zagged: ???
- Averted: Alice hides from the falling rocks, and climbs up the heap of rubble once it's settled.
- Enforced: ???
