Averted during actual gameplay, however, as Mega will need to jump or side-roll through the incoming shockwaves.

* In ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'', if Mario or Luigi is stunned by a GroundPound from a Sledge Bro or from some of the Koopalings, they'll bounce up and down in place for a few moments. After defeating Bowser, the resulting impact from down below will also bounce Mario or Luigi high into the air if they're standing on the ground.

* Mowgli and Bagheera during the Elephant Patrol's introductory scene in ''Disney/TheJungleBook''.
* At one point in ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective'', [[TheDragon Fidget]] kidnaps Olivia and imprisons her inside a glass bottle. Later, [[spoiler:when Basil and Dawson escape Ratigan's DeathTrap, a giant anvil that was part of said DeathTrap comes crashing down, the impact of which bounces Olivia's bottle into the air and actually freeing her from inside]].

* ''VideoGame/MegaManV'' on the GameBoy had {{Uranus|IsShowing}}, who shook the ground violently with every jump. While it did not outright knock Mega Man over, like Guts Man's quakes did, it did make him bounce up and down slightly, which interrupts him out of sliding, or the usage of Break Dash, [[ElementalRockPaperScissors which Uranus is weak to]].

When an earthquake usually hits, it tends to [[CaptainObvious shake things up a bit]]. Sometimes however, the ground can shake violently up and down. And when that happens, characters are bounced about, usually about a foot into the air.

* In ''Videogame/TheKingOfFighters'', Goro Daimon's special move "Jiraishin" has him palm-striking the ground with both hands, causing a small quake. It just knocks grounded foes off their feet normally, but in later games, the EX version of it actually launches the foe up, open for being juggled. And then there's one of his strongest {{Limit Breaks}}, Kyouten Douchi, which is similar but more powerful that it [[CraterPower outright makes craters]].

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' episode "Nursery Crimes" has Chuck the evil tree wizard who's also a 906 pound giant. When he falls from the thin branch of his tree home he hits the ground with immense force. This happens to the group of happy villagers (who also bounce around if they were a single entity).

* One comic strip of ''{{ComicStrip/Garfield}}'' shows Garfield bouncing up and down on some unknown surface, this surface waving and bending like it was gelatin. Garfield then identifies it as a hardwood floor when Jon shows up.

* In ''Film/SongOfTheSouth'', Br'er Rabbit, Br'er Fox, and Br'er Bear get in a BigBallOfViolence, out of which Br'er Rabbit escapes while Bear pounds on Fox, thinking it's Rabbit. Every time Bear pounds Fox the ground shakes, which slows Rabbit's escape briefly.

** In WarioLand Shake It, bosses cause this when they slam into the ground. In fact, to beat some of the missions you have to avoid being on the ground when it shakes since otherwise Wario will fly up and get knocked out for a second.
