Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheCommuter'' gave us an honest to god Multi-Track Drifting when its train got derailed.

Added DiffLines:

* Crossing over with PostModernMagik, this is the Speed Demon CharacterClass entire shtick in ''TabletopGame/D20Modern Urban Arcana''.


* In ''WesternAnimation/ThePolarExpress'', the eponymous train gets derailed and begins to slide out of control when the track dips below the frozen-over surface of a lake. The engineer uses the brake and throttle to pull a J-turn, pointing it back on course, and slowly corrects the direction to line up with the rails on the other side of the lake. The entire scene is somewhat of a [[JustTrainWrong nightmare]] for those versed in steam locomotive mechanics; not so much for ''steering'' the train with the throttle and break, but more for the fact that such violent and sudden moving of the throttle and Johnson Bar would tear the running gear of any real steam locomotive to shreds.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheDayTheEarthStoodStill1951'' shows tanks (or ''a'' tank in recycled footage, if you prefer) drifting as they take a hard right coming out of Fort Meade to engage Klaatu's ship.


** First, when she drifted the Panzer IV around [[UsefulNotes/BritsWithBattleships St. Gloriana]]'s Churchill, before letting her teammate open fire at point-blank range. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, the shot [[NoSell did not do squat]] against the Churchill's armor]];

[[spoiler:Unfortunately, the shot [[NoSell did not do squat]] against the Churchill's armor]];armor due to having an underpowered gun at the time]];



** Lastly, in the finals, (as homage to her previous trick as stated in the first example) where she drifted around [[GermanicEfficiency Kuromorimine]]'s Tiger I flag tank so hard that she broke the Panzer IV's tracks in the process.

([[spoiler:This time, the Panzer IV was armed with a gun powerful enough to punch through its target's heavy armor.]])


** An [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-wKfpPrRVIo episode]] involved Jeremy Clarkson in a Land Rover Sport attempting to outmanoeuvre a ''[[CoolTank Challenger 2]]''. He failed. The episode showcased the tank's smokelaunchers, manoeuvrability, speed and ability to handle rough terrain. And it was [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome awesome]]. However, Clarkson managed to survive for a full five minutes, by weaving around forests where the tank could not get a good shot on him. And that was with Challenger's crew having the handicap that they could only use it's main gun's sight to draw a bead on Clarkson's Land Rover, not any of it's co-axial, pintle or turreted mounted machine guns.

* The [[SugarWiki/NeedsMoreLove little-known]] tank racing game ''Videogame/TreadMarks'' is about off-road-racing, heavily-armed, powersliding... tanks.

* A drift-racing game ''VideoGame/RacingLagoon'' features a limousine, which is ''actively'' driftable using the handbrake like other sport cars. There are also trucks and buses, but they drift poorly due to their enormous sizes and weights, [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments but once you've modified]] [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome and mastered them...]]

* [[http://imgur.com/gallery/acsyv An amusing miniature model example,]] just in case you needed a demonstration of how to drift a train.

* The Tachikoma in ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'' are very fast spider tanks, so you know they are fast and agile. But some of the stuff they pull off puts {{Spiderman}} to shame.

* ''VideoGame/{{NieR}}'' lets you drift... while [[HorseOfADifferentColor riding a boar.]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9d1mFfFxiVw Yes, the hoofed animal.]] Yes, [[CrazyAwesome it is awesome.]] A programmer spent one of his lunch breaks trying to make the boar drift, and the producers thought it was too funny to not add.

This returns in the [[Videogame/NierAutomata sequel]] as well and is just as ridiculous as before.


** [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] with a Mercedes-Benz [[PopTheTires sans its tires, which have been shot to pieces]], in ''Film/{{Octopussy}}'', where Bond has to catch up with a circus train. [[ThisIsGonnaSuck Cue train approaching from the opposite direction]]. He, naturally, makes the jump before the inevitable collision. [[CaptainObvious Mercedes-Benzes are not frequently made in track gauges]], so the special effects crew had to improvise one.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/ForzaHorizon 4'''s first Showcase, "Behemoth", is a downhill race pitting an off-road truck against a hovercraft, which expectedly pulls off a few drift maneuvers.
