Names[ edit ] Certh no. Although mainly known as Gandalf, the character has a number of names in Tolkien's writings. Gandalf himself says, "Many are my names in many countries.
Averted in the Teen Titans fic The Mark. Jinx uses her powers to to make a trapeze cord Dick Grayson is using snap in midair. He, while upside-down no less, grabs the snapped rope, uses it to swing back toward the rigging, sails through the air to grab said rigging, and slides down it to the ground.
The recoil of grabbing the rope dislocates his shoulder, and sliding down the rigging leaves a cloud of dust from the chalk on his hands.
Of course, given that he's Robin and has been an acrobat since birth, it'd be more unusual if he couldn't do it. In Travels of the Trifecta Conway survives falling out of a helicopter because his traveling companion acts as a human cushion, and the story even states that this saved his life.
He's hit by almost spells to slow or stop his fall and the sudden deceleration breaks almost every bone in his body, though this was fully intentional on the part of his twin Harry and Harry's friends.
Film - Animated The Incredibles: When a man jumps from the top of a building to kill himself, Mr. Incredible, who is in the top of a much lower building, jumps across the street, grabs the man in mid-air and lands in a lower floor of the building from which the man had jumped.
The man ends up with serious injuries. And ends up suing Mr.
Used in The Hunchback of Notre Dame when Quasimodo falls from a parapet of the cathedral only to be caught under the armpits by Phoebus who happened to be on a lower level. Not only does Quasi not die, not only do Phoebus's arms not get completely ripped out of their sockets, but everyone lives happily ever after.
In Frozen when Kristoff and Anna fall two hundred feet, their fall is stopped by a layer of fresh snow at the bottom of the cliff, but their fall ends after only a few feet of snow.
How to Train Your Dragon: During the final battle in the first movie, Astrid gets thrown from her dragon and goes tumbling through the air. Hiccup and Toothless fly in and catch her right before she splats.
Hiccup asks Toothless if he caught her, Toothless makes sure he did and Astrid smiles rather happily considering that that catch probably should have broken her legs or spine. And in the same battle, Hiccup and Toothless without flight control should probably be splats on the ground at the end though we don't actually see how they hit the groundand the only injury ends up being a leg needing to be replaced, so that should probably be chalked up to barbarian hardiness and cartoon physics.
Lampshaded in the CG film Doogle, when one of the characters remarks after falling a great distance: I broke the fall with my face. The young alien is having trouble with the myriad of unlabeled switches on the control board, while a grim-faced blob-like alien with a clipboard is marking every wrong action.
Finally, he uses the right button, lifting up the still-sleeping human into the UFO. Then he lets go of the switch thinking it's done The older alien manages to push the right switch a split-second before the human hits the ground.
Naturally, the human is perfectly fine, even though he clearly fell at least 5 stories. Then again, we don't know the properties of the anti-gravity beam. If its force is evenly distributed through the body, it could provide extreme deceleration without damage.
In Penguins of Madagascarfor some reason, only hitting the ground becomes a concern when the penguins fall from a plane, when the other planes in flight they hit along the way down would probably have been a bigger concern.
Done in Once Upon a Forest when Abigail falls off the flapper-wingamathing while trying to retrieve lungwort from the side of a very tall cliff, but is saved by grabbing onto the wing after Russel swoops the flying machine down to catch her.It's hitting the ground ("the deceleration trauma", "it's the sudden stop").
The laws of physics are frequently ignored in service to the story, with someone taking a plunge from a great height being probably the most frequent offender. Writers tend to forget that it's not the fall that kills you it's the sudden stop at the end.
