* ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'' features several segments, during the on-foot portions of the game, wherein Pit grinds on rails made of light. No special footwear required; he gets by with his standard sandals. They happen to be gifts from Palutena, and can only be seen, much less ridden, by Pit.

* Whenever Sora visited [[{{Disney/Tarzan}} Deep]] [[{{ChuckCunninghamSyndrome}} Jungle]] in the first ''[[{{VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI}} Kingdom Hearts]]'', there was a minigame where he and Tarzan went tree-surfing. To make this even weirder, if you made the right turns you would end up sliding through a ''cave''.

* As noted above, ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank''

to:

* As noted above, ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank''''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'' has the trope-naming Grind Boots. Ratchet has to buy them in [[VideoGame/RatchetAndClank2002 the original game]], and they allow him to... grind! Generally, rail grinding segments include things to hit and jump over, and some jumps between rails. Uniquely, these boots are one of the few things in the series to mostly avert BagOfSpilling, the other being the [[GrapplingHookPistol Swingshot]].



** ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'' feature grinding as part of the gameplay. It's pretty noticable how the rails magnetically attracts any characters who have their shoes close to the rails. Miss, and [[BottomlessPit oblivion awaits]].

Ever try grinding a rail on a skateboard? It is as hard as it looks. But not as hard as grinding one without a board. Despite this a surprising number of characters are able to do just that. Sometimes they don't even need a rail, they can grind just as well down any slope.

Ever try grinding a rail on a skateboard? It is as hard as it looks. But not as hard as grinding one without a board. Despite this a surprising number of characters are able to do just that. Harnessing the power of gravity to surf down [[BenevolentArchitecture well placed]] rails at high speed like a makeshift roller coaster, rail grinding allows a character to move faster than their normal running speed though only in the direction of the rail possibly serving as a shortcut between areas. Sometimes they don't even need a rail, they can grind just as well down any slope.
