* 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.

* 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.]]
