* ''VideoGame/Minecraft'' being [[WideOpenSandbox Minecraft]], there is no wall in the game that a determined player can't break through. Thankfully averted with [[ActionBomb Creepers]], who won't explode if they don't have a direct line of site to the player, otherwise staying safe at night would be impossible without tons of obsidian.

* VideoGame/DiabloIII added this in the form of a potion update, allowing you to burst through enemy-summoned walls. Justified, as the "door" may be a yard-long gap filled with lethal toxic puddles, arcane sentry turrets, exploding ice bubbles, lava, or a really angry monster, and your normal teleport ability might be on cooldown or out of gas. So grab your [[{{Pun}} Kulle-Aid]] and scream "OH YEAH"!

** Referencing ''Literature/OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest'', there's a scene where an elderly Native American man dramatically throws a water fountain through the window and jumps out, prompting the Old Jewish man to yell after him. Later in the scene, the man throws the fountain back through ''another'' window and jumps up again because he forgot his hat.
--->'''Old Man:''' You know, the door was ''open'', [[TheNicknamer Chief Break-Everything]]!
** Barney actually pulled off the parody in an earlier season -- after Homer refused beer after being hospitalized from an exploding Duff can, Barney (unsuccessfully) smothers him with a pillow and does the fountain-through-the-window gag.
--->'''Moe:''' He ''really'' needs a girlfriend.
** When the family travels to Japan, Homer does this repeatedly by walking through ''shoji'' doors, apparently not getting the concept that they ''slide''. He even does this when he and Bart go to ''prison''! (But only [[SelfRestraint after the bail is paid]], and the door is actually ''opened''.)
** {{Subverted|Trope}} for laughs in the episode where Marge becomes a cop. One obstacle was a brick wall that she thought she had to climb. Chief Wiggum remarks "Huh, women. Always having trouble with the wall. They can't seem to use the door." The shot then goes to the rest of the recruits (all male) walking nonchalantly through a door.

** In an issue, the X-Men are imprisoned in Murderworld. Cyclops faces three doors, and Arcade tells him one of them leads to life, the two others lead to death. Cyclops [[TakeAThirdOption takes a fourth option]] and just blasts through the side wall, which turns out to be the right move because all ''three'' doors were trapped. ([[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin There's a reason]] Arcade calls his personal amusement park "[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Murderworld]]"...)
