* ''Film/ThorRagnarok''. Hela is trying to enter an Asgardian stronghold protected by a) a deep chasm, and b) enormously tall stone doors (it's from the UnnecessarilyLargeInterior school of architecture). She blows the doors open in such a way that they fall outward, bridging the chasm.

* ''[[VideoGame/RebelAssault Star Wars: Rebel Assault II: The Hidden Empire]]'' has an unusual example of this. While shooting your way through an Imperial base, you come to a chasm with a [[{{BrokenBridge}} destroyed bridge]] and are forced to improvise a way across... ''by shooting the [[{{ExplodingBarrels}} supports]] of another bridge above you''. This bridge falls perfectly into place, [[{{DroppedABridgeOnHim}} killing a couple stormtroopers in the process.]]

* The first time you visit Rhamu in ''VideoGame/CosmicStarHeroine'', Chahn gets a flamethrower which she uses to topple trees to use as bridges. Dave isn't enthusiastic about that idea, despite Chahn's reassurance.

* In one ''ComicStrip/FootrotFlats'' strip, the Dog attempts to avoid one of the Murphy's crocopigs by pushing over a tree to allow him to cross the river. However, the dead sapling he pushes over is both far too short to reach the over bank and far too spindly to support his weight.

* ''VideoGame/{{Ico}}'' has you blow up a large pillar to make a bridge.
* Averted in ''VideoGame/TheLastGuardian''. Early on, you knock over a pillar, creating a bridge across the chasm in front of you. A moment later, the pillar slides free and tumbles into the chasm and you're forced to find another way across.

* In ''[[VideoGame/TheLastofUs The Last of Us]]'', the player will often encounter gaps between building to building. Conveniently, however, is the fact that in such situations a ladder the exact size of the gap will always be nearby to form a makeshift bridge with.

* Featured in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime's'' Shadow Temple to reach the room before the temple boss. ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' does this as well. You have to use {{Trick Arrow}}s both times to reach the base on the other side. ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' lets you use good old-fashioned bombs to knock over sentry towers and cross chasms. ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' lets you use axes to cut trees and create makeshift bridges, but more realistically as it doesn't always work; not only does the tree itself need to be long enough to reach the other side, but it won't work if you cut it blindly, as you need to think about where it's going to land.

* Hermes, a sort-of-antagonist in ''TheSuffering'', launches a bus down a ravine that blocks your progress. It's uncertain whether he's deliberately creating a bridge for you, or trying to run you over.
