* In ''Manga/AkagamiNoShirayukihime'' both Zen and his aide Obi prefer to get places by trying to take the shortest route, often jumping over balconies instead going around to the stairs or using other potential obstacles like trees to get around faster. Zen isn't able to get as much practice as he'd like as being a prince his antics are not put up with by his superiors.

* Has also appeared in the opening of an episode of ''{{Rush}}'' and several recent episodes of ''Series/TheBill''. Needless to say, they were being chased by the police at the time. Not only that, the villain of the first episode is actually an instructor of Parkour in Melbourne. Part of the Australian Parkour Association.

* A meta example is the art of {{Speed Run}}ning in general. The basis of Parkour philosophy, getting from one place to another as fast as possible, is precisely what Speed Runners do, and it's more prevalent in open-ended games like ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' and ''{{Metroid}}'', or in old-school Platformers.
* Speaking of ''VideoGame/{{Metroid}}'', Samus herself can be can be considered a free-runner with all the flipping she does. She also wall jumps, and does one-handed cat-leaps to get to where she needs to be. The physics of ''Super Metroid'' make it possible to do some actual Parkour stuff with what you have, especially with Mock-Balling which lets you get places really fast, especially really small places.

Interestingly, they baselines at the neighborhood.Parkour Jam had no problem with them, even though they knew that they were mutants. The city's LawfulStupid superhero, Lamplighter, was a different story.

* Mercs in ''VideoGame/DirtyBomb'' can walljump to get to their destination faster or to climb on to ledges and other areas that can't be reached by just jumping. Notably, the three heaviest mercs are capable of doing this. The ''Springy'' augment allows them to do three consecutive wall jumps.
