* Haley does this in the video for "Bury It" by {{CHVRCHES}} by using her telekinetic powers to hold random objects in the air long enough to climb down to where the other characters are. She then demonstrates that this was actually [[IBelieveICanFly not necessary]].

* In ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'', during the duel of Sora vs. Kurosaki, [[spoiler:the former of the two]] does this to avoid being crushed by a collapsing building, which, judging by some of the in-universe audience's reactions, demonstrates an agility and physical ability that's huge even by Action-Duel standards. This also serves as one of many moments that show that [[spoiler:[[LetsGetDangerous Sora really isn't]] [[SanitySlippage playing casually anymore]]]].

* ComicBTheFlash can get away with this because he's not just quick, he's supersonic. Running up the side of a building is a standard Flash trick. But Barry Allen, UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|of Comic Books}} Flash, didn't stop there; he took this trick (and so many others) to truly hilarious lengths. Barry would routinely run along things like smoke particles and -- no joke -- ''light beams''.

** More generally, if two characters are in mid-air, one can use the other's head as a footstool to gain a bit of extra height.

A version of ColossusClimb controlled by the RuleOfCool. A character somehow jumps and runs along a rain of falling debris or projectiles -- none of which are actually attached to anything -- not only to dodge but to ''gain altitude'', sometimes to reach the area firing the things in the first place. A very good way to not only show off a character's agility but also their speed.

A very good way to not only show off both a character's agility but also and their speed.



Technically due to Newton's Third Law of Motion this isn't actually impossible, it just requires that the rocks have enough mass to be worth pushing against, and that the character [[SuperSpeed can run and jump faster than they are falling]]. It all becomes much more plausible if their destination is in freefall along with them.

* ''ViewtifulJoe'': Justified in episode 23 -- he used ''Slow''. What made it impressive was that he punched the ground to make the rocks fly up in the first place.
