* The Icelandic monk Sulien, in Dorothy Dunnett's ''King Hereafter'', takes Wiki Walks across the world. For example, in a simple trip from Scotland to Rome, he makes it to Russia, among other places across Europe. And it all seems logical at the time.
** Lampshaded by one of his friends, who notes that "Only Sulien could be shipwrecked on the east coast while sailing from west to further west."

* The main character of ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'', JD, experiences daydreams that cause him to go on three-part wiki walks. The trigger comment, the daydream, and his verbal response.
** Amusingly lampshaded in later seasons, where they show the trigger comment but the camera stays "in the real world", where JD's friends comment on how he's about to snap out of it with a completely off-the-wall comment. He doesn't disappoint.
*** "We're gonna need a whole lotta gnomes!"

* Creator/StephenColbert goes on purposeful Wiki Walks on ''Series/TheColbertReport'' using [[http://wikiality.wikia.com/The_DaColbert_Code The DaColbert Code]] for purposes ranging from predicting Oscar winners to solving the murder of JFK.
** To date, things the [=DaColbert Code=] has [[PropheciesAreAlwaysRight been right about]] include ten correct Oscar picks and a Presidential election.

* Browsing the Wiki/SCPFoundation wiki can sometimes lead to this.
** Be warned, that site can turn creepy ''fast''. It's quite possible to go from "[[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-458 A never-ending pizza box?]] That's pretty cool." to "[[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-610 Oh, eww, what is that?! Aagh!]] much quicker than you might think.

** Variants on this game put restrictions on what you're allowed to click on. It is also known as wikiracing, when it is played in a competitive form, with the aim being to get from one page to another either in less time or less clicks than your competitors.

** Tabbed Browsing is the bane of everyone with [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny ADHD]]. You open a bunch of tabs and then promptly forget about half of them, only to vaguely remember them several hours later when you've long since got off the computer to do something else.
** However it is also a savior, as tossing the interesting link into a tab helps you focus on what you're actually looking for.
* This is older than the Internet. "Birdwalking" is something teachers always have to avoid; "jumping to subjects away from the intended subject." The term is at least 25 years old, if not more so.
** And like Wiki Walking, it's created its own game, but more for the spectators than the participant. The goal is to get your teacher to tell stories about their past for the remainder of the class. Some teachers are more cooperative than others, creating a range of difficulties from EasierThanEasy (new teachers trying to connect to students) to NintendoHard (usually old ladies that actually think they're teaching you something useful).
* To celebrate Wiki/TheOtherWiki's tenth anniversary Creator/TheBBC sent one of its reporters to do a Wiki Walk against the clock in [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-12172367 this article]].
** British entertainer Creator/BobMonkhouse also did this weekly on one of his later shows. Audience members would shout out two subjects at random, and he would improvise a flawless chain of connections every time.
