This is popular in many cop shows; our hero can be counted on to leap to the roof of a speeding getaway car at least once per season. Alternatively, he can jump onto the hood and glare at the driver while said driver tries to shake him off. Larger vehicles can also be used (particularly popular version is jumping onto a tall vehicle from an overhead bridge) - if it's a truck, for example, our Hero will often need to climb forward to the cab somehow. (You can also [[TrainTopBattle climb about on trains]], but they're a bit different, since they don't swerve about.)

** In one case, as he's riding on the hood of a car he sees a NYPD patrol car next to him. He cracks a joke about what he's doing probably [[TemptingFate not being covered in the traffic laws]]. The officer smirks and we GilliganCut to Spidey holding a traffic ticket.

* Constantly in ''Film/TheGodsMustBeCrazy''. In an early scene you can just about see one of the actors playing a rebel soldier go flying off the hood of the car because of it, he continues with the scene as it nothing happened. Not too surprising as it's set in Africa where riding on top of a car is not uncommon.

** [[Recap/DoctorWho2013CSTheTimeOfTheDoctor "The Time of the Doctor"]]: [[spoiler: Clara accidentally does this when trying to prevent the TARDIS from returning to Trenzalore without her, after the Doctor tricked her into being sent home so she'd be out of danger. The TARDIS ends up being 300 years late because she had to protect Clara with a force field on their way back.]]

* In the episode "Real Time" of ''Series/{{Workaholics}}'', the guys are trying to get to work in a hurry, but are too drunk too drive. Adam dons rollerblades and when the gang goes to get on a bus, he tries to hang on the back to be skitching. The guys talk him out of it, and later he tries it anyway with Alice's car. She promptly backs up into him.

* Led to one of the most memorable sequences in ''Roleplay/DinoAttackRPG''. The heist on Dacta Corp.'s just gone horribly wrong, and the two survivors have to get away with the plans they were trying to steal... while the assassin who responsible for killing the others is right on top of their car. Cue intense chase as Montoya has to navigate a freeway while simultaneously trying to help his partner shake her off- [[spoiler: They only got away because she believed them dead when the car veered off the road and caught fire, when in actuality they managed to escape when she left just before the blaze]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'' episode "A Plague of Insecticons" where the episode-namer Insecticons used lightning to down the Autobots, they found the lightning-based attacks are nulled with the rubber on the tires of their vehicle mode. Optimus Prime and Wheeljack (team's tech-head) both rode a pair of team mates in vehicle form whilst firing their weapons. It's probably simpler to coordinate this stunt when everyone involved is a robot.

* At least one 1920's bank robber favored involuntary Outside Rides -- he would put a solid row of hostages on his getaway car's running boards until he got out of town.

* Firefighters used to do this, but stopped because it was too dangerous. Secret Service still do in an emergency. Note that those vehicles are probably designed to be ridden (especially old fire trucks).

** It is customary in modern era for the troopers to ride ''atop'' on their personnel carriesrs instead of inside, especially at combat zone. The inside is reserved for the gear or carrying wounded troopers. The rationale is that if the personnel carrier is hit by an RPG, it becomes a death trap for everyone inside. It is also far easier to jump straight into combat off the top of the vehicle than from inside. Moreover, every man atop the vehicle is another pair of eyes for observation and another rifle for counterstrike. This practice became standard in UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar. Bulletproof vests and kevlar helmets have made this practice safer to the riders than what it used to be in WWII.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/YogisSpaceRace'', the prize for winning the race was a trip on a space plane. As usual for this show, there was [[UndesirablePrize a twist to the prize that made it not worth winning]]: In this case, the trip was ''[[ExactWords on]]'' the space plane, rather than ''in'' the space plane.
