* Vultures in ''StarCraft'' are of the "Rocket Bike" variety. They're apparently [[GameplayAndStorySegregation a lot smaller than their unit appearance suggests]].
* Dante from ''Franchise/DevilMayCry 3'' plays this for laughs, sort of, by jumping on Lady's rocket and riding it like a surfboard.

* ''JetMoto''
* If you're very, very, very lucky, you can get one in ''WorldOfWarcraft''. They're rewards from the TCG.

* The (Bonne family) train boss, the [[GratuitousGerman Gemeinschaft]], in ''VideoGame/MegaManLegends 2'' launches [[MascotMook Servbots]] riding Missiles. To defeat the boss, you must [[PlayingTennisWithTheBoss throw these missiles back at it.]]. It comes across as cute and hilarious, especially thanks to the facial expressions of the servbots.

* ''{{VideoGame/Contra}} III's'' 4th boss involves riding a MacrossMissileMassacre while disabling the boss's anti aircraft weaponry and shields. This fight is a RuleOfCool and takes RefugeInAudacity.
** ''VideoGame/ShatteredSoldier'' had Mooks riding missiles in the second stage. And in the fourth stage, you ride one again.
* All vehicles in ''[[JakAndDaxter Jak II]]'' are jet bikes, and can be jacked in midair. Doing this to the Krimzon Guard brings down the wrath of the DemonicSpiders and is best avoided.
* At the end of ''[[VideoGame/JustCause Just Cause 2]]'', [[spoiler: you have to ride on not one but four nuclear missiles and disable them in midair while fighting the boss, who, naturally, is also riding one.]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Action52}}'', main character and some enemies in ''Rocket Jockey'' ride on a rocket.
* It happens in both NES and Wii versions of ''ABoyAndHisBlob'' to reach Blob's home planet and to navigate the levels.
* The last non-boss level of ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry 3''. Also a frequent form of AutoScrollingLevel on ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountryReturns''.

* Worms 4: Mayhem added a weapon to the arsenal: the Firework. It works almost the same as the Flying Sheep, but it is more powerful, harder to control, and there is also a worm attached to it.

** Ork Stormboys take a remarkably simplified approach to jetpacks: Take a larger-than-average rokkit, strap it to your back, and you can now fly. One stormnob even had his legs replaced with bionic claws so he can live up to his nickname of "Da Vulcha".

* At least one StarWars book took a speeder bike and turned it UpToEleven, welding the controls of a bike to a PODRACER engine. Han commented it must shake considerably when it breaks the sound barrier. The owner answered that it did. He later experienced it first hand.

* Music/{{Edguy}} has an album (and its title track) appropriately named ''Rocket Ride'', and its [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/2/20/Rocket_ride_FRONT.JPEG front cover]] pretty much illustrates it.
