** Arcueid in the MassiveMultiplayerCrossover ''BattleMoonWars'' was immensely fond of this, at one point revealing that she hadn't shown herself until then because there wasn't a cool lamppost that she could stand upon when making her entrance.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', Robin also fights atop a bamboo grove against an anthropomorphic monkey while journeying up a mountain to meet a martial arts master. He later perches on top of the bad guy's staff (really his which was stolen), and then leaps off, causing the staff to smack the bad guy

* The Star Wars scene is parodied on Robot Chicken where Obi-Wan declaring the high ground is a near verbal tic.

** It's practically a RunningGag in ''Nanoha'' for every DarkMagicalGirl (the ones who can fly, anyways) to do this at least once.

* Occurs in ''Anime/Nisemonogatari'': Yozuru Kagenui is constantly standing atop some object or another. This includes sculptures, mailboxes, and even her humanoid familiar when nothing else is available. In fact, she refuses to stand on the ground at all. We eventually learn that the reason for this is because [[spoiler: she and her colleague are subject to a curse, though the details are not explained]]. This devotion to keeping the high ground is made all the more impressive when you consider she's doing it in heels.

* Recent incarnations of ''Comicbook/{{Spider-Man}}'' have also got him doing doing this, which isn't too much of a stretch, due to his adhesive abilities and equilibrium. (His more usual trick is to hang from ''beneath'' a lamppost arch or flagpole.)

** In addition, [[SociopathicSoldier Kimblee]] does this in Ishval, standing on a high wall while blowing up Scar's entire village. Later, Scar [[LampshadeHanging hangs a lampshade]] on the role reversal as he stands on top of a building before escaping from Kimblee.
