* In ''VideoGame/SplinterCellChaosTheory'', a guard can kick open a door if something is blocking it. If that something is you, then the door will knock you out causing an instant mission failed. Conversely, you can kick open doors and knock out anyone else who is blocking it from the other side.

* This can be done in the ''Franchise/MetalGear'' games, starting with ''MetalGearSolid2.'' If you're hiding in a locker or similar, exiting while someone is directly in front of the door will knock them out of the way (possibly creating a domino effect if he flies into another person). ''MetalGearSolid3'' introduced swinging doors, and charging through them full speed will knock aside anyone on the other side of the door. In all cases, these are quite unstealthy, but handy if you need to make a run for it in a pinch.

Compare with DoorJudo. See also ToyotaTripwire. Might be the deed of a GhostButler, or a side effect of TacticalDoorUse. Can also overlap with FacePlant. Not to be confused with HeelFaceDoorSlam, although one might slam a reformed villain to death with a literal door.
