* '' In Spook Country by William Gibson, Tito, a member of a Cuban American crime family, practices la systema, apparently rooted in a martial arts sort of thing from Russia, and enriched by the presence of Afro-Cuban orishas. This makes Tito a recruit for "the Old Man's" plot to contaminate an illegal container (of truck size) by shooting it with radioactive bullets. 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.

** The official StrategyGuide's portions on free-running and climbing are clear on the importance of efficiency, suggesting that one [[TheTetrisEffect adopt the ''traceur'' mindset]] to the game world, "appraise your immediate environment quickly, identifying all potential points of interactivity," and that "the real challenge lies in picking the most efficient route to your destination."
