* Barricading your house is essential in ''VideoGame/{{Darkwood}}.'' However, the... things... can smash their way through eventually.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Contagion}}'', the nailgun is an item "loaded" with wood planks and used to put up barricades on doors and windows. It takes a few seconds to put one up and they're more resilient than they seem unless it's only one against the full brunt of a horde. For players, breaking a barricade takes a good few whacks with a melee weapon.

* This is how they try and keep the zombies out in ''VideoGame/NaziZombies'' (''Call of Duty World at War/Black Ops''). Indeed, its such a fundamental part of the game mechanics you get points (to buy weapons) from nailing boards down and a power-up called "Carpenter" auto-repairs all windows in the level in this style at once.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/RainbowSixSiege'' uses a variant, where defenders are able to put up full barricades near-instantly because the boards come in pre-made rolls, which are unrolled over the doorway or window in question and nailed in place in three or four spots with a nailgun. They can also be removed about as quickly, as any three melee hits to the barricade will destroy it, and defenders can also pull the whole thing down with a crowbar.

* In the CreepyPasta ''The Horror from the Vault,'' the residents of Sunnybrook barricade themselves in the school gym during the creature's rampage. It was seconds away from beating down the barricades when the sun drove it away.

This is a common trope in animation. Because of {{Hammerspace}}, the character can get the needed hammer in an instant, plus a pile of boards and nails. The boards will always crisscross and overlap, as if the character doesn't have time to be precise with their work due to the dire nature of the threat on the other side. Often the boards are placed in ways that would make them bulge out and very hard to nail down. In RealLife, this is a semi-realistic trope - boarding up a door is a fairly good way to barricade it, and if you have some people to hold the door closed as you do it, then it can make a reasonably speedy improvised weapon. Variations have been used in several mediaeval and early modern sieges.

* Common gag in ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' cartoons, desperate characters may even resort to producing bricks and mortar from {{Hammerspace}} and adding a brick wall to the fortifications

* Wakko Warner takes this trope a step further in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' episode "Temporary Insanity". In a bid to beat his siblings to the phone (Just roll with it) he first shuts the door, pulls a steel gate in front of it, then a steel door, and then an elevator door! As a finishing touch, he adds a wall of bricks.
