* The titular hero of ''Videogame/SuperMarioBros.'' was already the running and jumping master. So, when 64 came around and they decided to expand on his repertoire of feats of agility, it was natural that a bit of parkour was thrown in with wall-kicks, slides, long-jumps and the like. In more recent games, Galaxy especially, this trope is played very straight. Mario's mastered the wall-jump, hops over lower ledges to keep momentum, flips off of poles, scales walls, [[SarcasmMode does more need be said, or is this good enough?]]
** There's even a {{Mockumentary}} advertisement for ''VideoGame/NewSuperLuigiU'' called [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5wplnqlqUD4 Finding Luigi - Legend of Parkour]].

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.
