Three examples of nuclear structure effects in fission dynamics are discussed: (i) The appearance of a super-short symmetric mode in the fission of nuclei around 264Fm leading to two double-magic 132Sn, (ii) Fission of some super-heavy elements where the heavy cluster is focused around double-magic 208Pb, and (iii) A saw-tooth distribution in angular momenta versus the fission fragment mass in the fission of 239U. The Metropolis random walk method is used to simulate the strongly damped fission dynamics on a 5D deformation grid. The dynamics is driven by pairing-, shape- and energy-dependent level densities. When available, a good agreement with experimental data is obtained.
