Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/AkagamiNoShirayukihime'' the knight Mitsuhide was introduced to his charge, the second prince of the kingdom, by being brought to the castle by the first prince, walking near a building and being told to look up as Zen leapt from the roof to a nearby tree in an attempt to escape his duties. It's a habit Zen never grew out of and early on he acquires an aide who also prefers to get around this way, to the point that he rarely ever uses doors or hallways without being ordered to.

* One of the first cities ever built by humans was called [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%87atalh%C3%B6y%C3%BCk#Archaeology Çatalhöyük]], (roughly) pronounced "Cha-tal-her-yik". All the houses were clumped so closely together that the entrance was generally on the roof, and the rooftops acted as streets. Since then, humans invented [[BoringButPractical the front door]].

* If you play your skills just right, you can do this in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion''. It's VERY entertaining.
** In Morrowind, you can attain this ability by exploiting certain glitches.
*** Or just level your acrobatics up to 100 or so. Never had to touch the ground in some towns.
*** And the Jump spell effect helps at any Acrobatics level. Roofhopping was also possible in ''Daggerfall''.

Acrobatics level. Roofhopping was also skill, or by using a Jump spell. It is a perfectly reasonable way to get around towns, and is even recommended if you're trying to avoid the CityGuards.
