* In ''VideoGame/{{Titanfall}}'', opposing [[MiniMecha Titans]] can be "Rodeoed": an infantryman can climb on top of the machine, expose the internal machinery, and fire into them, allowing them to directly damage the Titan's hull.

Once they're on, there's only two ways of killing them: get help from a teammate, or use Electric Smoke.

* The ''Wolverine'' game on the X-Box 360 and PS3 has an AWESOME fight with a fully functional Sentinel. It's completely to scale, towering over anything and everything in the game, and you climb it in boh phases of the fight to destroy it. Hell, the second part of the battle has you doing this AS YOU BOTH FALL FROM THE STRATOSPHERE. The game could have ended there, and lost NOTHING.

* This can be seen in grappling Martial Arts such as Jiu-Jitsu during David Versus Goliath contests. Where the bigger opponent can comfortably rely upon any 1:1 strength being in their favor, the smaller opponent must instead commit more of their body weight to complete a submission. This creates the visual effect of David climbing and clinging to an assortment of limbs to maximize their strength, while also allowing them to outmaneuver the larger opponent, especially as they often have a greater degree of flexibility to their advantage.

** The Spine of Deathwing encounter takes place on the titular dragon's back, fighting against his corrupted blood while trying not to be thrown from his back when he rolls to the side. The goal is to loosen metal plates and then destroy the tendons holding them in place to expose his flesh to a more powerful attack.

* The Mechas in Creator/OrsonScottCard's ''[[Literature/OrsonScottCardsEmpire Empire]]'', apparently designed by a particularly GenreSavvy engineer, are nearly impossible to climb on. Our heroes have to get creative to take them out, by pushing on the legs to upset the balance, and then hitting it with two cars. [[spoiler: They find a much, much easier method once they link up with the National Guard in the form of AT-4.]]

* In ''VideoGame/MapleStory'', Gollux is so huge, he doesn't just take up the whole map, he ''is'' the map! His body is sort of like an eight-room dungeon (with summoned mobs inside) and the BossBattle thus takes place on and inside him. Players must defeat all the mobs, then several monsters that count as sub-bosses (his shoulders and torso), gaining access to the true Boss, his head.

* In the climax of the Beast of The Rails arc in ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'', the [[BearsAreBadNews Swartzwalder]] king and Brother Ulm scale the gigantic corbettite clank [[HumongousMecha Humongulus]] to get to the Beast in its iron grip. Since the Beast has magnetically suspended everyone around it (including Humongulus), the Swartzwalders (who are bears) and the Corbettite monks (who are garbed only in frocks and train man hats) are the only ones unaffected.

* ''VideoGame/{{Bloodrayne}}'' featured a giant...[[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampire...]] [[OurGodsAreGreater goddess...]] [[BuffySpeak thingy...]] named Slezz, who is a variation of this trope. She spends the better part of the fight as an ActionBomb MookMaker who's [[MadeOfIron indestructible skin]] prevents you from harming her. Throw her own explosive children back at her and eventually the concussive force will blow a hole in her stomach. [[{{Squick}} You then climb inside her to]] [[AttackItsWeakPoint Tear her heart out from within.]] Rayne is not happy with this turn of events.
