* ComicBook/LuckyLuke expects to have to get out this way when he enters a building, so he always parks his horse under the window.

* Averted with ''VideoGame/PAYDAYTheHeist''. SWAT will usually use explosives to destroy windows before rappelling inside. You can't jump through a glass window yourself; you have to shoot out the glass first.
* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': At the end of TheCaper that serves as the game's ActionPrologue, the protagonist escapes the casino he's robbing by jumping straight through a multi-story window and landing unscathed several stories below. Your MissionControl implies the only reason he did it was because it was "a stylish way to end a job."
* Possible by crouch-jumping through a window in ''{{Postal}} 2'', though realistically you take a bit of damage. The police also tend to get very perturbed when you do it around them.



* The intro to ''VideoGame/JakXCombatRacing'' has [[BadassDriver Jak]] drive through [[ExplodingFishTanks an aquarium]] and into a bar in order to rescue [[DeadpanSnarker Daxter]].
* ''VideoGame/DieHard'' for the NES allows you to jump through a window, out of a building from thirty stories up. [[spoiler:This kills you]].
* ''VideoGame/HalfLife1'': a scientist does this rather awesomely, only to die moments later. This is commented on in ''Machinima/FreemansMind''.
** It's entirely possible he'll run toward you, and even if he doesn't, you can save him by killing the zombies before they can hit him.
* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'': This is Saxton Hale's preferred way of entry. To top it all off, he manages to succeed doing this while ''jumping from a plane without a parachute''!
* The original ''VideoGame/SyphonFilter'' has Logan jump through the Expo Center lobby's glass ceiling 50 feet up. He jumps through another window to enter [[BloodstainedGlassWindows Rhoemer's cathedral stronghold]].
* In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica'', Steve jumps through a window in BulletTime, a ShoutOut to the opening of ''Film/TheMatrix'', to save Claire from a Bandersnatch.

* ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRevelations'': Altaïr crashes through the big window behind the Mentor's chair during his escape from Masyaf. It's a bit of a DespairEventHorizon since he's forced to leave the castle he called home in the hands of the BigBad, not to mention the fact that he's leaving [[spoiler: his wife's corpse in the garden]].
* The first ''Videogame/{{Crash Bandicoot|1996}}'' pulls one of these off during its [[ExcusePlot minimal backstory.]]

to:

* Used as one In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'', Leon is capable of many possible takedowns jumping through windows without injury, simply by covering his face, which is good, because he tends to exit buildings this way. He also almost never climbs ''down'' a ladder.
** Leon really takes it to the extreme in this game. Almost any window you can walk up to can be leapt through with no consequence (and thanks to the giant flashing button on the screen, it's encouraged). Leave a house through the door? NEVER; OUT THE SECOND FLOOR WINDOW! Climb down a ladder
in the ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries''.
three story tower? NO, JUST JUMP STRAIGHT DOWN! It's worth noting you can break a window and still jump through it, but it often just has Leon hop over the windowsill instead of [[RuleOfCool diving through it]].
** Hell, even Ada, who's wearing a skin-bearing {{qipao}}, can pull it off exactly like Leon, without getting a scratch.
* Possible by crouch-jumping In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica'', Steve jumps through a window in ''{{Postal}} 2'', though realistically you take BulletTime, a bit ShoutOut to the opening of damage. ''Film/TheMatrix'', to save Claire from a Bandersnatch.
* [[LampshadeHanging Lampshade hung]] in ''VideoGame/SaGa2'':
The police also tend to get very perturbed when you do main character's father ''always'' leaves buildings through windows, leaving the other characters wondering aloud what the point is.
* ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'''s Speed Highway has a tall building with a glass structure jutting out the sides; Sonic breaks the glass by standing on

* The eternally [[NiceGuy cheerful and friendly]] Papyrus in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' tries
to leave encourage the castle he called home in protagonist to make friends with his friends, including the hands HotBlooded HeroAntagonist Undyne. His idea of the BigBad, not to mention the fact that he's leaving [[spoiler: his wife's corpse the two of them alone to get acquainted is to [[BlatantLies blatantly]] [[INeedToGoIronMyDog lie about]] [[PottyEmergency needing to use the bathroom]] (not only do [[NobodyPoops monsters generally not have that function]][[note]]Specifically, monster ''food'' is made of magic and is digested completely, leaving nothing to, ah, pass through.

* The first ''Videogame/{{Crash Bandicoot|1996}}'' pulls one

If you look out of these off during its [[ExcusePlot minimal backstory.]]the window, Undyne just mentions that Papyrus usually nails the landing... so not only does Papyrus ''regularly'' do this, apparently this time he failed in some unseen but comical manner.
* Averted in the old click and drag game ''VideoGame/{{Uninvited}}'', any attempt to break the windows to get out of the haunted house lead to you bleeding to death; no you can't clear the shards with a chair or something; it just doesn't work.



* Hilarious example in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'': in the Heaven's Feel path, Shirou and Kotomine have to quickly escape from a castle. Kotomine jumps out the window, and Shirou, after a moment's hesitation, follows. Problem is: they're on the eighth floor, and Kotomine is a very experienced magus who knows how to soften his landing. Shirou barely avoids crippling physical damage (he notes it's a miracle he didn't break anything), and afterward all his companions are staring in wonder at what a colossal idiot he is.
* Doable in ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRenegade''. Most windows that are big enough to jump through are breakable, which means if you get pinned down in the upper floors of that Hand of Nod you can make a hasty exit through the window.
* Done with BulletTime at the beginning of ''MaxPayne 3'''s second level.
* Averted with ''VideoGame/PAYDAYTheHeist''. SWAT will usually use explosives to destroy windows before rappelling inside. You can't jump through a glass window yourself; you have to shoot out the glass first.
* ''VideoGame/ThematrixPathOfNeo'' has a few examples. Notably, the SWAT teams on the skylight version, and Neo doing a normal window version to try and save somebody, being MadeOfIron Neo doesn't take any damage.
* ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'''s Speed Highway has a tall building with a glass structure jutting out the sides; Sonic breaks the glass by standing on it for a second. From there, he runs down the building without being injured by falling shards.

* ''Series/AgentCarter'' has a tragic variation in the first season.

As usual for television, shards of glass fly everywhere, [[SoftGlass but they're not hurt at all.]]
* In ''Series/{{Danger 5}}'', this is done OncePerEpisode by no one other than ''Hitler''. The Danger 5 team, having fought their way through another slew of [[WidgetSeries improbably freakish bad guys]], will confront Hitler only for him to escape through the nearest window. Head first. Sometimes while he's duel-wielding machine guns. And in a RunningGag, it's always StockFootage from the first time he does this. Our heroes only succeed in killing him ([[NotQuiteDead or so they think]]) when they finally corner Hitler in an undersea base which doesn't have windows.

to:

* Season 2 Opener of ''Series/{{Sanctuary}}'' has [[spoiler: Ashley and her squad of near-vampires entering through sanctuaries throughout the world through their skylights and proceed to tear things apart.]]
* A ''Series/TwentyFour'' Day 8 episode deconstructed this; a suicide bomber broke out of the window when he was surrounded by Jack Bauer and his crew, but ended up limping as he walks into the oxygen chamber.
* ''Series/TheATeam''
John does this frequently. Usually by Murdock. One specific example occurs in "[[Recap/TheATeamS2E16SayItWithBullets Say It With Bullets]]", where, during the raid on one pilot of ''Series/TerminatorTheSarahConnorChronicles''. Granted, he's trying to get away from a Terminator.
** He does this again in
the villains' hideout, Hannibal season 2 premiere, when he's trying to escape from [[spoiler:Cameron after she'd temporarily gone rogue]].
* In the second episode of ''Series/ThirdWatch'', Maurice "Bosco" Boscorelli tackles an armed felon
and B.A. they both go through a ''second floor'' window.
* Myka, Pete, and Claudia of ''Series/{{Warehouse 13}}'' all get trapped inside a house stored at the eponymous Warehouse. If they try to leave, the house simply warps space so that they are instead entering the house again. So Pete does the (semi) logical thing to do and jumps through a window instead. [[spoiler: ...Which causes him to
jump ''in'' through the window [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments right next to go after the bad guys. As usual for television, shards of glass fly everywhere, [[SoftGlass but they're not hurt at all.]]
* In ''Series/{{Danger 5}}'', this is done OncePerEpisode by no one other than ''Hitler''.

it.]]]]



* Omar Little did this to escape certain death on ''Series/TheWire''. Unusually for the trope he was badly injured by the move, but it was from a fourth-floor window. This was taken from Omar's real-life inspiration, Donnie Andrews, with one difference: Donnie jumped from the ''sixth'' floor. The TV show had to turn it down to make it believable, and even then...
-->'''Marlo Stanfield''': That's some Spider-Man shit there.



* ''Series/TheScarletPimpernel'' (the 1999 miniseries): In the first episode, Pimpernel throws himself against a closed window in order to escape from Chauvelin after those two confronted each other in a French café.
* A RunningGag in the "La Oficina" sketch of the Chilean show "Jappening con Ja" is having [[ProfessionalButtKisser Espina]] open one of the office building's windows (and the office itself is located in one of the top stores of a rather high building) and throw himself off it whenever his "beloved" boss lectured him, screaming [[CatchPhrase "Me castigo jefe, ME CASTIGO"]] ("I'm punishing myself, sir, I'm punishing myself!"). Then [[IronButtMonkey he would return to the office completely unharmed]].
* ''Series/{{Poirot}}'': In ''The Veiled Lady'', when both Literature/HerculePoirot and Captain Hastings are cornered by the police for burglary, Poirot distracts them, allowing Hastings more time to run toward the windowed back door exit with the special Chinese fortune box in his hands. But by then the door is locked, so Hastings gets a SugarWiki/{{Moment of|Awesome}} CrazyAwesome by jumping out through the window, smashing the glass from inside.
* ''Series/MissionImpossible'': In "The Princess", the assassin twice escapes by jumping through a closed window. No reason is given why they do not open it first.
* ''Series/{{Arrow}}'': Combined with OutrunTheFireball in "Canaries" when Oliver and Roy do this to escape from a bomber by leaping through his apartment windows just after he presses the detonator.
* ''Series/AgentCarter'' has a tragic variation in the first season. Chief Dooley, trapped into a thermal suit that is building up toward an explosion, jumps out a window to avoid taking anybody else with him. He shoots the window first to weaken it, and injuries from the crash aren't an issue at this point.
* Gambit was fond of doing this when he was racing to the rescue in ''Series/TheNewAvengers''. He comes crashing through the window of a folly in "Dead Men are Dangerous", and a health farm in "the Deadly Angels".
* In ''Series/TheITCrowd'', [[spoiler: Denholm Renholm]] nonchalantly steps out of a thirtieth-floor window during a board meeting to off himself when some "irregularities in the pension fund" are exposed.
* ''Series/MajorCrimes'': In "Hindsight, Part 4", Amy and Coop arrive a motel just as a suspect flees a shootout by diving through a closed window. He gets up still shooting.



* Casey Jones makes a dramatic entrance this way in one episode of the 2003 ''[[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles]]''.
* Mr. Slave does one of these in the ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "South Park Is Gay!". Unfortunately, because it wasn't safety glass [[LampshadeHanging he ends up a bleeding mess on the floor]].



* Boldsteed, a horse, does this in episode 20 of ''WesternAnimation/BooBoomTheLongWayHome'' when rescuing his four friends from the industrial laundry they are being trapped in.
* Stewie does this in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''; when it happens he's replaced with a ''very'' noticeable StuntDouble.



* Stewie does this in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''; when it happens he's replaced with a ''very'' noticeable StuntDouble.
* ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'', forbidden (among numerous [[MoralGuardians heavy restrictions]]) to depict anyone breaking through glass, caused Spidey to leap through always open or conspicuously, utterly windowless spaces.
* Subverted for laughs at the start of the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode, "Dragon Quest". Fluttershy rushes towards a closed window in panic, enters a "ready to jump" pose, and... gently opens the window in an exaggerated manner before continuing her jump.

*In ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World''; John and George, and about half the patrons of the Border Crossroads Inn, escape the hideous stench of the overflowing toilets (created by John) by going out the windows (they're only on the second floor, but still) rather than fighting their way through the crowds trying to use the elevators or stairs. As he's weakened from his feat, John sprains his ankle dropping down, but puts it to rights with a HealingPotion.

* In the ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' Movie, Spike jumps through a train window to get to the villain. He shoots the window first, so it'll shatter easily, and is apparently protected from injury by just being that BadAss.

* Used totally straight in the ''Anime/PrincessTutu'' episode "Black Shoes", when Fakir jumps through a window to face the DarkMagicalGirl--and then proceeds to pick up a glass shard from the window to use as a weapon. He has no powers that would protect him from the glass, and he's only wearing his school uniform...he's just fond of being very dramatic and {{badass}}.
