* In the ''WesternAnimation/CliffordsPuppyDays'' episode, "Doggie Duds", Clifford, Jorge and Daffodil do this to try to get a patched pair of shorts down from a high shelf in a closet. Daffodil didn't really appreciate having Clifford and Jorge standing on her head, and she even dreaded they might do it again later in the episode.

* Though not actually performed, in ''[[Film/SpyKids Spy Kids II: The Island of Lost Dreams]]'' this idea is suggested by Donovan Giggles to his henchmen when they were trying to get the MacGuffin out of a high tree. Considering that the spot they were trying to reach was nearly fifty feet high, it can be assumed that the plot would have quickly failed if actually attempted.

* Made strangely ''epic'' despite being very silly when dozens of waddle-dee's form a literal latter that many more dozens waddle-dee's use to get back inside Dedede's castle in ''Anime/KirbyOfTheStars''.
* ''Manga/OnePiece'' makes use of this during the climax of the Alabasta Arc, when, in a pinch due to the [[spoiler:ticking time bomb at the top of few hundred foot high clock tower]], Vivi is literally catapulted up the side of the tower by her crewmates, starting with Usopp on the ground, Chopper on his shoulders in his deer form, and Vivi on his back. Nami uses her Clima-Tact to create energy to send Chopper and Vivi into the air, where Sanji and Zoro, both at various points on the tower, jump off the side and give the two a boost, until finally Chopper tosses her to [[spoiler:the time bomb's location]]. Cue Vivi's CrowningMomentOfAwesome.

''Falkenberg's Legion'' also goes one better. To quickly cross a (small) barb wire entanglement, an armored soldier lays on it, providing a makeshift path for his fellow soldiers. This duty is generally performed by the newest soldiers, being lowest on the totem pole, and being the least experienced.
