* [[spoiler:An alien soldier in the guise of]] a preteen girl tries this in an episode of ''Series/TheMiddleman''. Unfortunately for her, ''nobody'' is more GenreSavvy than the Middleman.

* Subverted in an episode of ''Series/{{Sliders}}'', where the title group slides into a world still stuck in the Old West mode. Quinn and Rembrandt are framed for murder and jailed by the local crime boss and a corrupt sheriff, to be hanged the next day. They realize they could use their knowledge of westerns to trick the guards and escape. Quinn does a ceiling cling while Rembrandt calls for help. Unfortunately for them, the person who walks in is the above-mentioned crime boss, who is also a dimentional traveler (and a Kromagg). He simply walks up to the cell doors without opening them and immediately looks up at Quinn, mentioning that [[GenreSavvy Kromaggs have their own westerns]].

** If you thought Pokémon couldn't get away with this, say hello to the [[{{Mooks}} deliciously-trained peons]] of ''VideoGame/PokemonColosseum'' and ''[[VideoGame/PokemonXDGaleOfDarkness XD]]'''s Cipher syndicate. Many times a path looks clear, but a Peon will drop from the ceiling and engage you with no warning otherwise.

There's one Peon in XD that takes this UpToEleven and actually drops from an ''elevator ceiling'' when the player uses the elevator and player doesn't notice til they actually left it.

* In ''Film/DesperateJourney'', TheSquad clings to the undercarriage of a bridge in order to surprise some Nazi sentries. It works, because the Germans are distracted by their comrade, who is at the bottom of the ravine groaning from the TapOnTheHead administered by the good guys.
