* Most videogames based off the ''Alien'' franchise will naturally have this option accessible for both Alien and human characters at some point, but special mention should be made for ''VideoGame/AlienIsolation'', where this method of getting around becomes the standard once Sevastapol has gone to hell, both to avoid Working Joes and violent civilians. They're noisy to open and move around in, which will draw the xeno's attention; they're dark as hell and can have multiple dead ends; they disrupt your tracker and make it impossible to know if the xeno is nearby; and if the xeno gets in with you (which it will), you'd better hope you had the sense to bring a molotov.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' supplement ''State of the Art 2063''.

* ''Series/UnnaturalHistory'' subverts this. Jasper tries to think of a creative way out of the room he's trapped in, and the camera focuses on a air vent duct. The next shot show him struggling futilely to pry the vent free.

* ''Who's Harry Crumb'' has the titular detective attempt to spy on his client's GoldDigger wife and her lover (whom he suspects to be the kidnappers of the client's daughter) by pretending to be a repairman and crawling in the vents, which are big enough to accommodate someone the size of Creator/JohnCandy. Subverted in that he actually can't get a good look inside the room due to the awkward positioning of the airholes, so he resorts to using a camera (and then doesn't bother to look at the pictures to find out that the kidnapper is [[spoiler:his boss]]). When the kidnapper turns up the A/C, Harry is rapidly propelled along the vents to the point that he literally flies out at the end.
