* Although it's not specifically preceded by a climb because the characters are already inside a skyscraper, Alan Rickman's character performs a rather memorable example (in slow motion no less) of this trope at the end of the ''Film/DieHard''.

* The climax of the Robert Powell version of ''Film/The39Steps'' takes place in the ClockTower of Big Ben, where the villains have integrated a bomb into the mechanism of the clock. While Hannay hangs onto the minute hand in a desperate attempt to stop the clock, the police engage in a fire-fight with the villains who are trying to set the bomb off by hand. And the 39 steps refers to [[spoiler: the number of steps the police and Hannay have to climb to get up to the clock tower]].

* "Dramatic fight scene while climbing" is the bread and butter of gameplay in ShadowOfTheColossus, but this trope still comes into effect with the final boss, who is ''[[UpToEleven a mile tall]]''.

* It's a lot more climactic when it happens again in ''VideoGame/GhostbustersTheVideoGame'', with Mr. Stay Puft scaling another building to get at the MacGuffinGirl. This time around, there's no opportunity for CrossingTheStreams and the 'busters have to resort to just melting his face with their arsenal of experimental equipment.
