* Used by a hero this time in [[TransformersFilmSeries the 2007 Transformers movie]] during the climactic battle at the end of the movie. Sam runs up a tall building (using an inside staircase) while carrying the [[MacGuffin Allspark]], during which [[BigBad Megatron]] follows him by just bashing through the different floors. Justified because an Army Ranger radioed for a helicopter to meet him on the roof of said building. [[spoiler:Said helicopter was then shot down by another bad guy seconds before it grabbed the Allspark from Sam.]]

** The thing that makes the Mankind-Undertaker match a CMOA is that after 'Taker tossed Foley off, Foley managed to get back up, climb the cage, and get chokeslammed ''through the cage''.

* The opening video of ''VideoGame/BaldursGate'' is build around this trope, only that it's (apparently) a hero who is chased to the top of the tower by a villain, only to be promptly thrown all the way back down. Is Sarevok BadAss or is he BadAss?

* It happens twice in ''VideoGame/JakIIRenegade'', both leading into [[Main/BossBattle Boss Battles]].
** The first time involves Jak climbing Haven Palace and is caught out by Baron Praxis.
** The second occurs late in the game. Jak and Daxter must get through the levels of a weapons factory to stop their ally Krew from completing a weapon that is in actuality a Main/DoomsdayDevice. Krew refuses to back down.

* Possibly echoing the King Kong example ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' climaxes with a showdown atop another building in New York. Lampshaded (as with everything in the film) in that the actual climb is extremely anticlimactic. The climb is justified within the plot in that the villain seems to be doing perfectly well at ending the world from where they are and the trope is played straight again with the giant Mr Staypuft scaling the building in proper King Kong fashion to get at the Ghostbusters.
