* ''TabletopGame/NewWorldOfDarkness'' has Parkour as a five-dot general "Athletic Style" Merit, not unlike the Fighting Style Merits, with each dot centering around a new technique or degree of mastery. ''WerewolfTheForsaken'' likewise has the [[PrestigeClass Lodge]] of Spires -- a.k.a., [[FanNickname The Lodge of Batman]] -- that gains a discount to buying up dots in Parkour due to a mindset that treats the city as just another hunting ground to be mastered.

To disguise the entry hols, Tito runs along a slack-rope, covering the holes with magnetic discs.

* The ''Comicbook/{{Spider-Man}} 2'' video game gives Spidey and the player plenty of moves to run around the city with. Aside from the obvious web-swinging and {{Wall Crawl}}ing, Spider-Man can run up walls, swing on poles and, with a combination of sprinting and his chargeable jump, easily leap from roof to roof without even needing to use his webs. The game actively encourages you to be creative with how you move around the city.
