* Used twice in the comedy TV series ''Series/GetSmart''. Once 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. CONTROL agents know this as the "Double Door Deception Trick." Another time, Smart and the Chief are breaking into a cabin from opposite ends, when CONTROL agents simultaneously open both doors. Smart and the Chief run past each other and out the opposite doors, and one CONTROL agent shoots at each of them - missing and shooting one another instead.

* The climax of the ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' short "Professor Tom", Tom tries to ram the front door down to get at Jerry. However, Tom's pupil opens up the door (and gets SquashedFlat by Tom), then Jerry sets up an innertube across the backyard patio so that Tom will be sling-shot back through the doors and into the mailbox.

* Creator/PeterSellers in ''[[Franchise/ThePinkPanther A Shot in the Dark]]''. He charges at a door just as it opens, and his momentum carries him across the room, out the opposite window, and into a river.

* Done for humor in ''[[Film/TheCannonballRun Cannonball Run 2]]'', a case of when the door isn't opened from the other side. When JJ (Burt Reynolds) and company infiltrate the Pinto Ranch to rescue the ArabOilSheikh and discover the room he's in, they decide to break the door down, which he, Victor (Creator/DomDeLuise) and Vendebaum (Sammy Davis Jr.) begin charging at. Problem is, Blake (Dean Martin) accidentally pushes the door open just as the former trio run right through it, and thus end up running through the room into the far end with a bonk.

** The 1942 Bugs Bunny cartoon "Hold the Lion, Please!" has Bugs do this to Leo the lion-- and in an especially ridiculous way, as the door is set in an upright frame ''in the middle of the jungle''. Now Leo isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer, but he clutches the IdiotBall extra tight, as he's prompted to ram the door after Bugs dangles a key in front of him-- ''around the door frame''-- and then snatches it away.

** 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.
