** Although ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' uses this line verbatim during the duel between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, it's only a mild example as Obi-Wan claims a realistic hilltop as his vantage point rather than a towering spire, for ostensibly [[GeoEffects strategic reasons]]. However, it does also symbolize his moral high ground and happens to give him an especially heroic appearance during the climax of the battle.

Hilariously, ''Film/RogueOne'' shows that after his defeat, Anakin builds his personal castle on an elevated cliff on that same planet. Who has the high ground now?

* Obi of ''Manga/AkagamiNoShirayukihime'' prefers to enter fights from the trees or buildings above his opponents. In this case part of the reason for his approach is because he'd prefer not to be seen straight away since he's usually on his own fighting multiple opponents. In at least one case he used his altitude and position in a tree above them to try and intimidate a couple of thieves into giving up since he saw they were just kids once he'd caught up.

* "Literature/ClockpunkAndTheVitalizer" features The Vitalizer floating several stories above ground level when we first see him. Given Clockpunk's inability to do anything about it, all it really does is serve as a way for him to further taunt her.

* Wrestling/ShaneMcMahon is famous for his willingness to ''jump off'' from a (very) high place, despite being not a regular in-ring performer and being the son of Wrestling/VinceMcMahon. This ranges from a simple turnbuckle, to the top of the big-ass screen used as WWE's set, the Titantron, to jump off from the top of Hell in a Cell[[note]]Mind you, the modern HIAC that Shane jumped off is ''several feet taller'' than the old HIAC, such as the one used during the (in)famous Mankind vs Undertaker match[[/note]]. He's considered the craziest badass of the [=McMahon=] family for a reason.
