Not to be confused with its counterpart, "Free Running", which is similar but with a difference of [[TechnicianVersusPerformer "form" over "fuction."]] One of the central "rules" of Parkour is that it is not a competitive sport, and emphasizes efficiency, self-discipline, and [[DontThinkFeel oneness with the surroundings]], whereas "free-running" is based on stunts and acrobatics that can be done in one location, just for the hell of it, and may include extra flips and spins that are functionally superfluous (and energy inefficient) but [[RuleofCool look damn cool.]] Note that often, traceurs will be able to and will perform flips and the like and can be considered both a traceur and a free-runner. The main distinction of traceur and free-runner is in the mindset of the person.

* In ''Film/TransformersDarkOfTheMoon'', Sam Witwicky does some Parkour moves as he's running through a debris-and-wreck-laden street near the climax of the movie. When being interviewed after filming the first movie, ShiaLaBeouf revealed that he spend many months up to the shooting building up his muscles only to find out the hard way that agility was more important for the role.

* In ''Fanfic/TheBridge'', Monster X turns into a human when transported to the Equestria Girls universe. He uses ninja-like parkour to get around, complimented by the fact he still has a degree of super strength.



* Probably an example before this style, but in the stop-motion Creator/{{Rankin Bass|Productions}} cartoon, ''SantaClausIsCominToTown'', Kris Kringle uses some fairly sweet moves to escape the Burgermeister Meisterburger's troops.

* In an episode of ''Series/{{Covert Affairs}}'', Ben Mercer and Jai engage in a short chase through a shipyard that has them both employing some parkour type moves including Ben doing recognizable vaults.

Parkour is based on general principles of survival: Should one ever need to get from Point A to Point B as fast as possible, the shortest distance is always a straight line. The goal, therefore, is to get past, over, under, or through various obstacles without wasting any time. And it just happened that Évry's central agora is an incredible mishmash of stairs, decks, catwalks and roofs at different heights -- and thus, the best way to go in a straight line from A to B in Évry was jumping and running through obstacles.
