  • Lampshaded in Animalympics (1980). As the narrator waxes philosophical on "the thrill of victory, the agony of defeat", the last phrase comes out just as the polar bear carrying the torch through a desert starts hopping and blowing on his poor, sand-scorched feet.
  • A classic example is Starscream in The Transformers: The Movie. As Autobot City transforms, he gets his foot stuck in a closing door. He has to blast it (and his foot) to get out, leading to the classic whine, "Owww, my foot!"
  • On The Great Mouse Detective, Olivia stomps on Fidget's good foot, eliciting cries of, "Ow, my foot! My only foot!"

  • In Happily N'Ever After, when Frieda the Wicked Stepmother puts Ella in a chokehold, Ella escapes by stepping on her foot.

  • In Madagascar, Alex stubs his toe on a rock while running through the jungle, and then hurts his other foot on a thorny vine.
  • During one of the live-action sequences in The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, this happens to Finn and Bianca's mom, twice, with Lego bricks. She ranks the pain as just below that of childbirth.
