* [[Manga/AhMyGoddess Belldandy]] -- yes, ''Belldandy'' -- did it once in the manga.
* Given the size of [[ElaborateUniversityHigh Mahora Academy]], this is standard for the magically-informed in ''MahouSenseiNegima''.

Poor Muggles...
* Panther does this recreationally and for exercise in ''{{Eyeshield 21}}'' since the racist coach wouldn't let him train with the rest of the team and Panther isn't too well off, hopping off the roof of apartment buildings was just convenient.
* KamikazeKaitouJeanne and her rival Sinbad Roof Hop frequently. They ''are'' art thieves, after all, divine mission or no, and what better way to escape from the apparently almost completely incapable police and Maron's mildly obsessed best friend?
