** Also he yells on the way down, because that's a long way to fall and he hadn't thought it through. Still able to shoot prefect circles into the floor while falling and screaming, though.

** ''Film/{{Dredd}}'' has a downplayed and justified example. Dredd blows a hole in a wall by firing at it. It's only a single shot, but he's using a [[StuffBlowingUp Hi-Ex]] round.

* In SandyMitchell's ''Literature/CiaphasCain'' TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} novels, Jurgen's melta is often put to use to create these. Of course, since the melta was originally intended to penetrate tank armor, this makes a fair bit of sense.

* Not a method of escape, but of infiltration: In ''SonicX'', Tails creates a perforated circle in the side of Dr. Eggman's headquarters, which Sonic "punches out" with a spindash. ''Perf''ect!

* In the Film/JamesBond move ''Film/LicenceToKill'', Pam Bouvier (the BondGirl of the week) fires a shotgun at a wall and creates a perfectly round hole to escape through, rather than just pock-marking it with shot. Must be a mighty thin wall.

* In ''SnowCrash'', Hiro carves huge holes in the side of a well-armored aircraft carrier using a nuclear-powered, [[GatlingGood Gatling-style]], hypervelocity railgun. [[ICallItVera The weapon is named Reason]] because "[[{{Pun}} everyone listens to Reason]]."

* In the squad-level strategy ''SilentStorm'', with destructible environments, cinematic physics and big guns, blowing man-sized holes in the walls and floors is a viable way to maneuver. The risk of collapse is there, too. Additionally, this makes a submachine gun a far faster method to "open" a locked door than lockpicks (though the player IS [[WhatTheHellHero penalized for excessive collateral damage]]).

* Most of the ''{{X-COM}}'' series have allowed the player to blast his way through walls to get to the hostile aliens - particularly viable once you get access to powerful, alien weapons. You can even drill your way through a yards-thick wall with a powerful enough gun.

* In the game ''Battlefield: Bad Company'' it is possible to break walls down by shooting them, but this takes most of the player's ammo supply unless he uses explosives or a drill.
* This is the only way to open most doors in the ''VideoGame/{{Metroid}}'' series, and you need need different weapons for different colored doors. However, the blast usually just deactivates the [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience color-coded force field]] and opens the door normally, rather than damaging it.

* Taken to the extreme by Purple Dragons of [[TMNT2003 2003s TMNT]] in ''TurtlesForever'', when they hit the wall enough time, so 2003's Leo can drop the wall on them and their boss, Hun, during the rescue of the [[TMNT1987 1980s TMNT]].
