* 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.

** ''Film/CasinoRoyale'': Mollaka, the bomb-making LeParkour villain, gets chased by Bond in Madagascar through a construction site and an embassy. He practically goes out of his way to push and shove bystanders aside as well as kick one off a superstructure quite ruthlessly, even though he demonstrates several times that he can avoid obstacles with ease with his free running skill.
