* In ''VideoGame/Persona4'', Chie unleashes this trope in the form of the Galactic Punt. It's a OneHitKill to any downed Shadows, sending them off with ATwinkleInTheSky. Adverted against bosses, [[ContractualBossImmunity for obvious reasons]].
** This ability returns once again in VideoGame/Persona4Arena and VideoGame/Persona4ArenaUltimax acting as her [[LimitBreak Instant Kill]].

* Subverted at the end of Disney's ''{{Disney/Aladdin}}'', where it (briefly) ''looks'' like the Genie is just throwing the SealedEvilInACan out into the desert -- and then the Can itself gets Sealed away in the Cave of Wonders. Nevertheless, it's back by the sequel.

* ''Disney/WreckItRalph'': Ralph accidentally takes a Cy-Bug with him from ''Hero's Duty'' into ''Sugar Rush''. After crashing in ''Sugar Rush'', the pod's escape hatch activates, hurling Ralph and the Cy-Bug airborne. Ralph gets stuck in a tree while the Cy-Bug lands in a taffy pond and drowns, seemingly defeated. Ralph goes on retrieving his medal and later helping Vanellope, not knowing that the Cy-Bug survived and is breeding underneath ''Sugar Rush''.

* In ''Disney/{{Hercules}}: The Animated Series'', the "grab, twirl, and toss" move became Herc's staple fighting style. What with the fact that Disney wouldn't let him actually use that sword he always carried around. Seriously, watch ''any'' episode.

* Infamously pulled in ''{{WebAnimation/TOME}}'''s Season 1 Finale, when Nylocke [[spoiler: tosses the [[MadeOfEvil Forbidden]] [[BigBad Power]], which had been contained in a [[ChekhovsGun previously-set-up data absorbing item]], in a random direction. The Forbidden Power ended up in the ;Sanctuary region, where it eventually battled the Dragon Bug, forced the entire population of TOME to evacuate, and allowed the BiggerBad to carry out his evil plan. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Nice job breaking it, hero!]]]] This was, however, meant as a reference to the page quote, since Nylocke is voiced by the famous Creator/LittleKuriboh of WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries fame.

In many cases, especially within children's cartoons, the villain himself is [[ATwinkleInTheSky disposed of this way.]] By doing this, the heroes ignore the glaring fact that the MadeOfIron villain can and inevitably will just land somewhere, dust himself off, and [[{{Determinator}} try yet again]] another day. Might as well though, because if the show takes place in North America, the probably [[KidHero underage heroes]] aren't even allowed to kill their enemies, and if they somehow do, the foe will no doubt find some way to [[BackFromTheDead come back]]. As for jail, please, [[CardboardPrison it won't hold him for five minutes]].

* As spoofed in its GagDub, ''Anime/YuGiOh'' has Honda/Tristan attempting to rid Bakura of his evil side by hurling his possessed Millennium Ring down into a nearby forest. Of course, the Millennium Ring is a ClingyMacGuffin (which Tristan didn't know about), and it's back on Bakura's neck at the end of ''the very same episode''. Since in [[Manga/YuGiOh the manga]] this nonsense didn't happen (Bakura doesn't try to take Mokuba's soulless body as his own and Honda doesn't go Bruce Lee on him and throw away the ring, they simply rescue the kid and take him to a safer place), fans are left asking themselves what the writers were smoking while conceiving this pointless filler scene.
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'''s famous "LOOKS LIKE TEAM ROCKET'S BLASTING OFF AGAIN!!" cry as Pikachu knocks Team Rocket into the sky, followed by ATwinkleInTheSky.
** That's subverted, however, in that Team Rocket ''always'' manages to [[OnceAnEpisode come back in the next episode.]]

* Done hilariously in one issue of ''ComicBook/CableAndDeadpool''. The latter is fighting [[Comicbook/{{X-Men}} Sabertooth]], and it's more or less a standstill, until Cable intervenes with his telekinetic powers, and launches Sabertooth off the artificial island. Deadpool asks where Cable sent him, and Cable replies with, "Um...that way." Cut to Sabertooth splashing down miles away in the middle of the ocean.

* Played dead straight in ''[[JediAcademyTrilogy Dark Apprentice]]''. The New Republic attempts to dispose of the Sun Crusher, a shuttle-sized supernova-causing weapon, by dropping it into a gas giant. They explicitly knew that this wouldn't actually destroy the thing, but a) they couldn't figure out a more permanent solution because it was almost literally MadeOfIndestructium and b) one faction in the Senate thought it might come in handy some day. [[spoiler: They come to regret this decision when Kyp Durron gets DrunkOnTheDarkSide, pulls it back out and goes on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge with it. Luke Skywalker eventually shoves it past the event horizon of a black hole, which ''seems'' to have solved the problem permanently.]]
