* 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]].

* ''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.
