* ''VideoGame/RainbowSix'' series gradually proceeds from allowing you to open the doors, to kick them open and blow them up, to ultimately (Siege) eliminating door completely and replacing them with barricaded doorways which you can blow up or, unusually, punch through them. The game goes [[UpToEleven up to eleven]] by allowing to smash many walls with sledgehammers, incendiaries, explosives and even breaching shotguns to make brand new doorways.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/ComixZone'' often would block your progress with locked doors or large, heavy objects. You could sometimes find a switch to flip, or have Roadkill flip, or throw a knife at. Or you could drop some dynamite down and step back. You could also melee it until it opened, but that drained your health rather significantly, which was not a good thing in [[NintendoHard a game where health-restoring items were rare]].

See also DungeonBypass and StealTheSurroundings. Related to AxeBeforeEntering and ShootOutTheLock. The SubvertedTrope, where they bust down the door, and an ally notes they didn't need to, is WeHaveTheKeys. And the trope wherein they could've used the door but smash through the ''wall'' instead is ThereWasADoor.

* In the David Eddings series [[Literature/TheElenium Elenium/Tamuli]], the queen is locked in a room. Mirtai, a warrior giantess, smashes through the heavy wood door easily. She comments that many old doors have wood rot after so long, making them fragile, subverting and discussing the trope.
