* 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 (and drop his robes, which are equal to Combat Armor).

** 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.
