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

* The Military however, goes for a "Breaching Tool", the layman's term for this advanced piece of hardware is [[DropTheHammer Sledgehammer]].
* SWAT teams tend to use a small one-man Battering Ram to break through doors.

Compare to ThereWasADoor for when somebody's so impatient, they just break through the ''wall'' instead of the door. Or ShootOutTheLock, when resort to guns instead.

* ''AlanWake'' has a direct reference to ''The Shining'' when Stucky slams an axe through the door Alan just ran through.
* This is the main use for the axe in ''MitadakeHigh''. It's also the loudest sound in the game.

Added DiffLines:

* Axes in ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' are a quick way to break down wooden doors, though they cannot be locked so it's easier and quicker to just open them (breaking them down is only useful for relocating them). ''Iron'' doors, on the other hand, need a pickaxe to break through unless you can find a way to power them with [[{{Unobtanium}} redstone]].
