** In ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVIIThePrincelessBride'', there are no riddles or tests to solve - the only way to get past the very ''un''friendly troll in front of the crystal dragon's cave is to knock him off the bridge.

* In the ''Literature/BlackBlade'' series, there are numerous places in Cloudburst Falls that are the home of various monsters that will attack people if not given some token toll, like a candy bar or some loose change. Lila defeats the villain of the first book by tricking him into crossing a lochness bridge on foot without paying the toll, at which point said lochness eats him.

* A special event ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}}'' parodies the Monty Python scene above, in which TheChosenOne's path is blocked by a bridgekeeper, who will only let him pass if he answers three questions. If he is unable to answer the questions correctly, he will [[CriticalExistenceFailure spotaneously die.]] If he answers all three correctly, he is allowed to pass. However, if he answers the final question with a question, the bridgekeeper himself will be unable to answer, and thus will die.

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' (and its [[Series/GameOfThrones TV adaptation]]), the main bridge across the Green Fork is fortified and guarded by two castles known as The Twins that are the seat of the feudal house Frey. The Freys extort variable payments from whoever wants to cross their bridge, which can get absurdly high if the traveler is desperate enough.
