* In ''Webcomic/FriendshipIsMagic'', the human Rainbow Dash practices this as a hobby and aspires to join the Wonderbolts, a team of professional parkour practitioners. The villain gang the Shadowbolts also practice this.

* Mocked on ''TheOffice'' when Dwight, Andy, and Michael have just discovered the existence of Parkour, which Jim describes as a fad from several years ago. The trio excitedly jump around the office shouting "Parkour!" and generally just knock things over.

Parker of ''Series/TheKicks'' is an expert at parkour. In "The Best Defense Is A Good Offense", she easily climbs a tall trophy case without any help. Her skills also come in handy as a goalkeeper.

* ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'': At fast enough speeds, Soujirou Seta is capable of running across walls and ceilings, though he mostly uses that as part of his deadly arsenal and not for getting from point A to point B.

* ''Series/AgentCarter''. Agent Sousa has a YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe expression when an [[ActionGirl agent of the Black Widow program]] escapes down the stairwell by leaping down the balcony rails. It is 1947 after all.

* ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' has this to some extent with the [[ActionCommands reaction commands]], but it's turned UpToEleven with the new "flowmotion" mechanic in ''KingdomHeartsDreamDropDistance''. It's set make a return in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsIII''.

* Speaking of MarvelUniverse games, the ''Comicbook/IncredibleHulk'' can also pull the same wall-running/climbing, sprinting and jump-charging tricks in ''VideoGame/TheIncredibleHulkUltimateDestruction'' to largely the same effects. He performs air dashes instead of web-swinging, though. And his variation of Le Parkour is more or less going through everything in his way.

* VideoGame/DyingLight is basically VideoGame/DeadIsland's first-person zombie bashing with an infusion of VideoGame/MirrorsEdge-style parkour. During daylight hours, this skill is indispensable at evading the clumsy, shambling hordes. During the night, it's even more so: [[OhCrap the zombies gain the ability to free-run too.]]
* Videogame/ResidentEvil's character Leon seems to be capable of this to an impressive extent, almost always waiting for the [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome climax]] of the [[Anime/ResidentEvilDegeneration Film]]/[[VideoGame/ResidentEvil6 game]] to pull off some tricks.

Parkour practitioners (called by gender-specific nouns, following the original French; a male Parkour runner is a ''traceur'', a female is a ''traceuse''; referring to multiple practitioners uses ''traceurs'') run their environment like an obstacle course: vaulting obstructions, leaping gaps, running up walls, {{Wall Jump}}s, and otherwise taking wild shortcuts. Although commonly associated with cities, Parkour can be used to navigate any type of environment. Traceurs will tell you their discipline becomes a mindset over time. They learn to unconsciously scan their surroundings for routes and movements. Think TheTetrisEffect after playing ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed'' or ''VideoGame/MirrorsEdge''. Plus, it not only [[RuleOfCool looks damn cool]], but is practical, and may prove to become a more widely practiced discipline similar to martial arts.

*** Haytham's father Edward was able to do this as well, likely picking up the skill in the Caribbean.
