* ''Manga/OutlawStar'': Melfina shoots down Harry's requests to "go with him" and locks the door of the ship. Harry's pretty unstable and doesn't take it well. He bangs incessantly on the door but Melfina ignore his cries to let him in. Cue Harry shoving his fist through the door, and wrapping it around the throat of a surprised Melfina effectively pinning her in place and chocking her for a few moments. He releases her and opens the locks in a quick fashion, much to Melfina's horror.

* In one episode of ''TheYoungOnes'', the students' landlord goes crazier, becomes an "axe-wielding homicidal maniac", and starts to hack his way through the door.
* Parodied in ''ABitOfFryAndLaurie'', when [[BadCopIncompetentCop the two Special Squad policemen]] arrive at a woman's house looking for a suspect. Laurie's character begins smashing the door down with a sledgehammer, and Fry points out that it's unlocked and steps inside. Laurie answers that he didn't carry the hammer all this way just to turn the handle and makes Fry close it behind him so he can keep breaking it down, and puts a couple of extra holes in it once he's on the other side himself.

* The TropeMaker and likely UrExample is 1921 Swedish silent film ''Körkarlen'' (''ThePhantomCarriage''). The scene in ''Film/TheShining'' is a clear reference to this one, even if ''Film/TheShining'' is what every following ShoutOut is to.

* Axe-wielding zombies will sometimes make an entry this way in the ''HouseOfTheDead'' series, although there's nothing stopping you from blowing half their body to smithereens before they can finish breaking through the door.
