* ''Fanfic/{{Marionettes}}'': When the Mane Six hear Trixie screaming from the Castle of Friendship's bathroom, Rainbow Dash knocks the door down. Twilight gets annoyed and points out she had the key.



** In "[[Recap/Ben10UltimateAlienS1E7AndreasFault Andreas' Fault]]" The Forever Knights blast a hole in a building where Ben is signing autographs despite a double door being not three feet from one side of the hole. They apparently felt that they needed to enter in formation.
** Referenced in "[[Recap/Ben10UltimateAlienS1E8Fused Fused]]" when bad guy Agregor crashes through the ceiling... twice. The second leading a rather annoyed Kevin to tell him there's a door.

* ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' gives us an interesting LampshadeHanging. The Vision, being able to phase through solid matter, enters Wanda's room through the wall. Cap and Wanda quickly point out that the door being open isn't enough, you have to use it. He promptly exits through the door.

When Wanda objects, he says that he thought it was okay to come in because the door was open. Cap and Wanda quickly point out that the door being open isn't enough, you have to use ''use'' it. He promptly exits through the door.

* In the ''{{Dicworld}}'' 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.

* ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles''. In this case it is actually [[JustifiedTrope justified]], since the door is made from reinforced steel, whereas the wall is "merely" concrete.

* She doesn't make any holes in the wall, but [[Literature/ChroniclesOfNarnia Jadis]] gets into a walled orchard by climbing over the wall, despite the fact that there was a gate, and it was ''unlocked''.

Oftentimes this is committed because they forgot that WeHaveTheKeys. See also ImpactSilhouette (ManShapedHole), BulletholeDoor, DungeonBypass, SuperWindowJump, EnterStageWindow, CarMeetsHouse, BoardingPod, and TheExitIsThatWay. Compare BarrierBustingBlow. When going through the wall (rather than the door) is actually the ''easier'' solution, MyopicArchitecture may be in play.

--->'''Dane:''' Fuck drinking out of him; if that was me, I'd be like, "You fix that fucking wall before my dad gets home from work! He's gonna beat me with a belt; he's not gonna believe a talking bowl of fruit punch came in here."\\
'''Dane:''' Yea coming through the wall is real fucking cool! Using the front door is cool!
