* In the fifth episode of ''Series/WolfHall'', Henry VIII is proclaimed dead after a jousting accident and Thomas Cromwell rushes to the scene to find a tent crammed with Howards and Boleyns and other panicking or opportunistic individuals, all yelling their heads off. He has to push and shove his way through to get to Henry and do some proto-[=CPR=] on him. (There's a bit of EnforcedMethodActing during the scene, as the other actors were ''supposed'' to make it easier for Mark Rylance to get through, but were too caught up in acting the mob that he really did have to grab them and shove them aside.)

* The employees of theme parks (especially the larger ones, like the {{Disney}} parks) become World Champions at the art of navigating a Mobstacle Course. Having to get from Point A to Point B through a crowd of 80,000+ people gets them lots of practice.

* In ''PsychoBusters'', one character is trapped in a [[MasterOfIllusion illusion of a town]] [[NightOfTheLivingMooks full of zombies]]. He uses this trope to avoid the zombies.
* Daily mobstacle course training was how the protagonist of {{Eyeshield 21}} managed to (unintentionally) develop the skills needed to become a great runningback.
* In ''OnePiece'', Nami went through one of these to get to the [[CoolBoat Going Merry]] at the end of the Arlong Arc, though this example is a bit different from the norm in that the crowd is an issue because they're trying to ''thank'' her. Being Nami, she not only gets through the crowd with ease, she steals all their money in the process.
* In the ''KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'' manga, while training for the fight with Pollux, Kenichi's TricksterMentor Hayato Fuurinji made him use this as a training technique.
* Sena in {{Eyeshield21}} has been doing this since he was a kid, so his dodging skills are insane: Even while holding cellphones or other loads he can easily weave through crowds while not noticeably hitting many of them. This is actually his main EstablishingCharacterMoment and the moment that kicks off the whole plot: Hiruma watches him run away from the Ha-Ha Bros as they continue their usual bullying routine, even weaving through a rush hour mob, and sees a perfect football player.
