** Frequently in the first season, instead of merely opening a door, Angel would kick it open dramatically (often breaking it). The recapper on TelevisionWithoutPity speculated that Angel just ''really hated'' doors. Sometimes doesn't quite work the way a normal person would use it. Being a vampire, he can't enter a home where he hasn't been invited. That's why he brings a human partner, who ''can'' enter an apartment uninvited.

->''"That's just like [[Franchise/{{Superman}} Clark]]. Perfectly serviceable door, and he makes a hole in the wall."''

Some people just don't feel the need to follow certain rules. Like, using a door to enter a room. Instead, they prefer to simply burst through a wall or [[SuperWindowJump window]] in a [[DynamicEntry dramatic fashion]], even if it [[FridgeLogic makes no sense]] or it would have been easier to go the conventional way. This is especially common when someone [[BulletholeDoor shoots through a door]] despite the considerable time and ammo this would take in RealLife. Use of this Trope may be an indicator that the buster is really a SmallNameBigEgo and/or [[MixedMetaphor not the brightest bulb in the chandelier]]. Also sometimes an action of the LeeroyJenkins, who screws up his or her allies' plans for [[WithCatlikeTread a stealthy entrance]] by doing this. Another variant is simply kicking the door open and then someone point out that it wasn't locked.

Also often happens in the form of a fake out, where the audience is led to believe someone will enter through the door when the camera focuses on it, only to have them burst through the wall somewhere on either side instead.

Frequently {{lampshaded}} by someone shouting out the trope name, especially the DeadpanSnarker or the disgruntled owner of the building. Also, keep in mind the old joke about the stupid burglar: he breaks ''two'' windows, one to get in, and one to get out. The gag can [[RunningGag run loose]] if the person goes through a different place every time, or does it just as the hole is being repaired, much to the frustration of the owner.

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

** In "Tri-Stone Area", set in 27,000 B.C.E., Doofenshmirtz's ancestor only grunts and laughs, but when a platypus-like animal breaks through a hole in his cave, he makes primitive noises while pointing to the giant cave entrance two feet from where Perry broke in.

** Averted in a case where it actually would have been useful in "The Defeat of Superman": Instead of breaking down the door to the basement where Lois and Jimmy are being held, Superman unbolts and walks inside. The villains quickly close and re-seal the door, and while a confused Superman is wondering what they think that will accomplish, they drop a hunk of kryptonite in through a hole, leaving him too weak to stand, let alone break out. Had he smashed through the door in the beginning, such a plan wouldn't have worked.
