* In ''Series/BreakingBad'', Walter White instructed his companion to dispose of a body using one of these. However, the companion got the material of the bath all wrong, and the acid ate the bath and the floor it stood on.

* In ''Series/BreakingBad'', Walter White instructed his companion to dispose of a body using one of these. He specifically told him to get a plastic barrel that is resistant to the type of acid they'll use, but this part is then ignored and the acid and body are simply dumped in a bath tub. However, the companion got the material of the bath all wrong, and the acid ate the bath and the floor it stood on.

* When ''AbleTeam'' are first briefed on Neo-Nazi CorruptCorporateExecutive Unomondo (the closest thing that series had to a reoccurring BigBad) they're told how one of his accountants who turned state's evidence got a big set of pictures -- his wife and children being lowered one inch at a time, one picture at a time, into tubs of acid. The man killed himself the next day.
* ''BabylonBabies''. Russian mobster Gorsky captures a laboratory and uses the threat of this to force a scientist to work for them. His colleagues end up in the bath anyway once he's done the required work, though by that stage the scientist is not inclined to disobey.

* Subverted in an episode of ''KungFu'', where young Kwai-Chang is ordered by Master Po to cross a plank over an acid-pit full of human skeletons, and blind Master Po demonstrates by walking across it himself. Kwai-Chang obeys and walks across the plank, but falls into the pit halfway across -- only to find that it's only full of warm water, and the skeletons were made of paper; the "test" was simply a lesson to teach him that "fear is like a magnet" that pulls a man in its direction.
* In ''TheVampireDiaries'' a vampire-specific one is created by simply scattering vervain into the water. Any vampire that entered it would have their powers drained, then their skin burn.

* ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'' has acid in several areas, notably in the [[BrutalBonusLevel "Gauntlet"]] area of Brinstar, Lower Norfair, Tourian, and [[spoiler:the entire explorable area itself as you make your escape]]. While having the Gravity Suit, the greater of the two suit upgrades, will protect you from lava, it will ''not'' protect you from acid.
