When the Wallace Corporation are attacking Deckard's hideout, an AttackDrone fires a missile through the window, blowing up his [[FlyingCar spinner]] as he's running to it. To stop Deckard from being killed in the explosion, Officer K smashes straight through the wall and tackles him. Then a Wallace spinner flies through the subsequent hole into the building and offloads their mooks.

* In the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' fics of Creator/AAPessimal, student Assassins are explicitly discouraged from the direct approach via any convenient door and are actively taught to seek alternatives that give them the advantage of surprise. Even when the door is unguarded and undefended. Of course, sometimes students trained by Johanna Smith-Rhodes might associate "ensure the doorway is clear" with "use lots and lots of explosives as a lockpick". Johanna herself is no stranger to creating access doorways where hitherto none previously existed. The non-Guild inhumation that brought her a career offer from the Guild is a demonstration of this character quirk. [[note]]She inhumed a [[DarkestAfrica Howondalandian]] warlord in a well-guarded kraal by going in through a previously non-existent back door and blowing it to smithereens[[/note]]

* The agents of the US government have a perchance for breaking through random walls in ''Literature/OfSnailSlime'', regardless of other means of entry. As they so aptly put it, "Doors are for dorks."

* In ''ComicBook/PowerGirl'' fanfic ''Fanfic/AForceOfFour'', a Kryptonian criminal bursts through a wall purely because it amuses him.
-->She was interrupted when Kizo smashed through the outer wall of the building.\\
The Kryptonian deliberately avoided crushing the communications board against the wall. He thought he might have use for that. But it was fun to make an entrance like this, and note the fear and surprise in his enemies' eyes. Superman must have done it like this.
