* In ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'', Nick successfully does this to a [[StealthPun ram battering]] at the glass window in a door.



* Used in the comedy TV series ''Series/GetSmart'' when Maxwell Smart and 99 are trapped in a corridor with two villains trying to break down the doors on either side. Our heroes open each door in turn so they knock themselves out.

** Sylvester also uses this trick in "Mouse Divided," against a cluster of cats using a larger log as a BatteringRam. They end up running all the way to the top floor, and into a well.

* ''Manga/OnePiece'': Sanji, Franky, and Usopp are on the sea train Puffing Tom, which is loaded with government agents. After they've sent most of the agents oacking by disconnecting cars, one of the few remaining agents charges at the door- only for Sanji to open it and cause him to fall into the ocean. "Oh, you wanted out, sir?"

* In ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'', EvilChancellor Yzma gets a ridiculously complex DoorJudo treatment from Pacha's family, involving OffscreenTeleportation, a beehive, a [[AnachronismStew floor waxer]], a feather pillow and a conveniently placed birthday party.

The guest, opening the door in answer to Zero's knock, in time for Zero to charge right through and out the window, to hang beside Agatha.

* To get past the first little area in ''[[VideoGame/LegoAdaptationGame LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7]]'' Battle of Hogwarts, you must raise a gate a Giant is attempting to break down. Not only will he crash through the next, much flimsier door on the other side of the small courtyard, but he will trip over the low wall just beyond the door and fall, presumably to his death.

** In "Red Riding Hoodwinked," Sylvester and another (unnamed) cat do this at the same time, one at the front door and one at the back. Sylvester stays in front to build a boulder slingshot; the unnamed cat goes in back to grab a log for use as a BatteringRam. [[HilarityEnsues You can guess what the end result is.]]

* ''Series/JeevesAndWooster'' has one moment where [[LargeHam Roderick]] [[BoisterousBruiser Spode]] charges a door just as [[TheJeeves Jeeves]] opens it. Jeeves (as usual,) is completely unsurprised by the large man charging past him and making a loud crash, and simply greets the other man standing outside with his trademark "Good evening, sir."

The trick is to do it at the exact moment when they would have rammed it. When it works, the villains do not to attempt to stop or even slow down, but just keep going at full speed. Then they usually run into any number of traps prepared to bring them down -- or out another door on the far side of the room.

** WesternAnimation/BugsBunny is particularly fond of this trick. The ultimate example is probably ''WesternAnimation/BullyForBugs'', which sets up Bugs' final strike against the bull.
** In one short, two characters do this at the same time, one at the front door and one at the back. The one at the front door has a battering ram. [[HilarityEnsues You can guess what the end result is.]]
