* The movie "Abandon Ship!" (1957 starring Tyrone Power) has the survivors from a torpedoed ship in an overloaded lifeboat. The captain tries to keep it afloat by ruthlessly throwing out those who can't survive and keeping those he feels can, making no moral judgements on who is worth saving. Supposedly based on a true story.

* In ''Pirates of Tortuga,'' the crew of a pirate ship is ordered to abandon ship. Hilariously, they all dive overboard and swim for it, instead of using lifeboats.

* At the end of ''VideoGame/TheCrystalKey'', you have to make [[BigBad Ozgar]] think it's time to do this, by entering a code that sets off the ship's alarms. [[spoiler: This is done to [[BatmanGambit get Ozgar out of his private quarters and trick him into passing through both a hologram of the hallway and a portal to the Arkonian colonies' sun]], ''[[HurlItIntoTheSun thus burning him alive]]''.]]

* When a ship is destroyed in ''VideoGame/SpacePiratesAndZombies'', it will eject all of its remaining crew before blowing up. Other ships in the field can pick them up and add them to their own crew... or [[ThrownOutTheAirlock toss the uncooperative ones right back out]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Subnautica}}'' begins with this, as the entire reason the player character is stranded on an alien world is that the spaceship he's been travelling on, ''Aurora'', suffered catastrophic damage, forcing people to evacuate in the escape pods. Unfortunately, [[spoiler:his is the only pod that survives the crash.]]

* The first ''VideoGame/{{Halo|Combat Evolved}}'' [[VideoGame game]] begins with this, with the Marines and crew of the ''Pillar Of Autumn'' fighting their way to the hangar deck or the life pods so that they might try and escape the ship's imminent destruction.

However, aside from a few of the core members who manage to land scattered but safe, the rest of the crew who manage to get away in the life pods and shuttles are taken prisoner.

** To add insult to injury, the very next mission has Shepard having to abandon ship ''again'', this time from a space station that is under attack. Worth noting, ''Franchise/MassEffect'' is produced by BioWare, the same company that produced ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'', and this mission feels a bit like an homage to that game's first mission.
