* Sort-of done in ''Film/TheOne'', where the climactic MirroMatch between Gabe and Yulaw starts on a narrow catwalk above a factory floor. The fight them moves down to the floor itself, though.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline'', you cannot swim across the Niben River due to [[BorderPatrol slaughterfish]] killing you; you are forced to cross it at one of three bridges. These create natural chokepoints where many battles occur, particularly at Alessia Bridge.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' features the Big Bridge, a grand structure across the ocean which connects the continents of the West (allied) and the East (Exdeath's domain.) When Galuf crosses this bridge, alone, to rescue his captive friends, he's met by [[TheDragon Gilgamesh]] and the [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome famous]] "Battle On The Big Bridge" theme plays, which became so iconic of the battle it has become Gilgamesh's personal theme song.

*** Gilgamesh also appears as an optional boss with the first of his two battles on a bridge. He tries to introduce himself as dramatically as possible, but he winds up jumping a little too far and bouncing over the edge before flying back up to initiate the battle.

* ''Literature/TheLostWorld'' features a huge tree which the heroes use as a bridge onto the plateau. Predictably, it gets destroyed, leaving them with no choice but to go forward.
