* In Disney's ''Disney/RobinHood'', Robin and Little John would fire rope arrows to set up escape paths to move themselves and money. Done with a bit of realism, in that once the arrow was fired, somebody on the other end had to tie it off, instead of relying on the arrow to support the weight.

* In ''Film/SkyHigh'', the [[strike:Sidekick]] [[{{Sidekick}} Hero Support]] training includes learning to use one of these; as with the ''Film/BatmanBegins'' example, the whole mechanism is built into the UtilityBelt, which acts as a harness. It also has the option to launch a net or an inflatable raft rather than a line.
