* The Skaven from ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' have a tunneling unit. Whether it appears where it should (directly underneath the enemy's artillery units, usually) or the tunnelers screw up horribly and either collapse their tunnel, arrive somewhere on another continent or at least at a different spot on the battlefield than they should (whereupon they spend the rest of the turn bickering who held the map the wrong side up) is dependent on the roll of a die... Dwarven miners are a somewhat more reliable version.

* The player in ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' can certainly become this; this, and likely will since the only way to get many necessary resources is by digging underground and mining them out; many players begin this way by digging out a simple shelter to avoid monsters at night.night, and most will end up this way in the late game when their mining ends up digging out a massive system of tunnels.

* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': [[http://whateleyacademy.net/index.php/content-menu/stories/204-ayla-and-the-birthday-brawl-chap-13 MoleAr]], who can manipulate rock and similar materials by touch and directed a digout from a collapsed prison:
--> He looked around. “The only way out is the rubble in the tunnel. We tunnel into the debris, dealing with the way the rubble will slide down toward us as we work. The magical spells in the tunnel ought to be as wrecked as the walls. So once we get far enough into the tunnel to get around the magical effects of the ceiling in here, we can go straight up. We just solidify the debris as we go. Then we tunnel upward a bit at a time, making sidesteps to deal with the problem we’ll have when we finally get through the bedrock.”
--> The Black Tiger sneered, “Oh, and what makes you such a big expert on this shit?”
--> MoleAr mildly said, “This is what I do. I have a Masters and a Ph.D. in mining engineering from Texas A & M.”
--> The Black Tiger didn’t say anything, but his face was sure red.

* Mexican crime lord ''Joaquin Guzman'', aka ''El Chapo'', who has dug miles of tunnels under the US-Mexico border to smuggle contraband narcotics across the border- his method of escape is, predictably, having his thugs dig a tunnel into his cell from the outside. Also, the French officers who were captured during World War II- [[spoiler:they dug a tunnel out of the camp against all odds and escaped]].
