Real ziplines require specific, strong materials for both the line and the thing being held, so they neither one breaks, and so that the friction doesn't stop the slider halfway down the rope.

Real ziplines require specific, strong materials for both the line so they do not break, and so friction or breakage of the thing being used to slide down the line doesn't stop the person dead still midair or just snap and break itself.

* ''VideoGame/MirrorsEdge'' features Faith doing this [[TheyJustDidntCare WITH HER HANDS]]. Careful observation will note that her gloved hand always is in direct contact with the wire, thereby Handwaving the damage one would normally receive from such a stunt, but it far from excuses it.

* In ''[[Literature/LabyrinthOfReflections False Mirrors]]'', the heroes use their uniform belts to slide down ''vertical'' kilometer-long high-tension cables. They, however, are in ''VideoGame/{{Unreal}}''-based VirtualReality game, so it's justified. And still, Gengis's belt snaps at last seconds, and he barely survives a 20-story drop with a measly couple of HP.

When a character is stuck in a high place of some sort and has nowhere to go but down, he uses anything wire-like to fly down. Gripping onto a wire hanger is a common variation to the trope; however, this is a decidedly [[DontTryThisAtHome horrible idea]]. The Series/MythBusters have busted this one's plausibility.
