* In ''Film/TheGoonies'', this happens to [[JerkJock Troy]] while he is in the bathroom, and Mikey and the others were fooling around with the water pipes. However, this would also count as a SpecialEffectFailure, because while Troy is thrust up into the air by the water [[TheCanKickedHim from the toilet]], [[spoiler:you can clearly see the platform on which he is sitting that makes the stunt work.]]
* John [=McClane=] is shot out of a sewer pipe 10 feet into the air in ''Film/DieHardWithAVengeance''.

* Subverted with the 1939 ''Film/TheThreeStooges'' short "Oily to Bed, Oily to Rise" in that this trope happens with oil instead of water. While the Stooges are cleaning out the water pump belonging to a kindly old lady, oil spurts out from the pipe. Curly sits on the pipe to plug it up but is propelled into the air by the oil geyser a few seconds later. This gag was reused in a later short, "Oil's Well That Ends Well", in which Joe Besser stops up the oil gush instead. As footage from the former short was used here, careful observation will reveal that [[FakeShemp it's Curly on the oil geyser and not Joe]].
* A clip used in ''The Hollywood Clowns'' showed a guy being sent skyward by a suddenly broken fire hydrant.

* This trope is taken UpToEleven in ''Manga/OnePiece'' during the Jaya Arc: The quickest way to reach the [[FloatingContinent White Sea and the Sky Island]] is to use the Knock Up Stream, a colossal water jet which can propel ships into the sky (though in most cases they're turned into wrecks).
