* Prince Zen and his self appointed aide Obi in ''Manga/AkagamiNoShirayukihime'' use windows more often than doors to enter or exit rooms. Zen doesn't get to do so as often as he'd like as it's not considered proper decorum but Obi originally tended to surprise other characters more when he uses a door instead of a window to enter a building. Even Obi's stopped doing it so much after Zen knighted him and tasked him with Shirayuki's protection.

* In ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'', Edward climbs a tree to get into Bella's bedroom. Though she doesn't know at first, this later becomes an almost daily routine for their relationship.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}'', when Roger develops a crush on Doug's sister, Judy, he attempts to do this, obviously referencing ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet''. However, he gets the wrong house and is instead greeted by Doug's neighbor, Mrs. Dink, wearing curlers and a facial mask. She just smirks and says to him, [[DeadpanSnarker "Nice try, Romeo, but you're about thirty years too late."]]
