* In his novel ''A Good Clean Fight'', Creator/DerekRobinson has an RAF pilot realizing he must abandon his plane and bale out over the North African desert. The pilot quickly goes through all the drills to unfasten himself from his seat, which involves striking various quick-release buckles securing him in place. As he rolls out of the cockpit and into space, tugging for the ripcord, he realizes... he has also hit the quick-release buckle that was holding his parachute in place. The ripcord still pulls, but the parachute is no longer securely attached to him. As the weight of his body in freefall pulls him out of the harness, the last thing he sees is the parachute opening all by itself and getting further away.

* ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'': When Spidey is dropped from high in the sky by the Vulture, his suit automatically triggers its emergency parachute. Unfortunately for him, he's facing upward with his back pointing towards the ground, meaning the parachute pops out from underneath him. Unable to catch air, it immediately envelops him, causing nearly to drown when he crashes in a lake but can't swim up to the surface through the chute. Also, he forgets to have it reinstalled, resulting in a later mission involving heights putting him in danger of a fatal fall.

* ''VideoGame/KerbalSpaceProgram'': An unfortunately frequent occurrence when parachutes aren't properly staged or the player has triggered them at inappropriate times. For example, deploying main chute before deploying a drogue chute might cause the main chute to wrench off due to it being unable to handle the greater air forces at higher velocity.

For example, deploying main chute before deploying a drogue chute might cause the main chute to wrench off due to it being unable to handle the greater air forces at higher velocity. Less frequent in later versions, as the default behaviour is now for parachutes to wait to deploy until they can safely do so without being destroyed.

* In RealLife, if a parachute deploys ''inside'' the jump plane, it is an extremely dangerous situation. The usual procedure is to collect the canopy inside the plane, close the jump door immediately and terminate all jump operations and make an emergency landing.
