* In the other stories in ''Literature/ThePlaneteers'', other worlds [[AllPlanetsAreEarthlike have breathable air]]. But in "The Tenth World", Penton and Blake visit a planet that is too cold to have gaseous oxygen. They're trapped away from their spaceship by alien monsters, and find that they're using up oxygen faster than expected because of the planet's high gravity. (The same story also has Blake [[IntoxicationEnsues getting drunk]] on ''too much'' oxygen after his valve malfunctions.)

* ''Series/StargateSG1'': When Teal'c and O'Neill are trapped in a hybrid Goa'uld-human SpaceFighter stuck on autopilot, the main problem is finding a way to retrieve them before they run out of air. By the time the rest of the team reaches them (in a tel'tak shuttle), O'Neill is delirious from lack of oxygen (Teal'c is in a deep meditation in an attempt to conserve air).

* In ''VideoGame/EliteDangerous'' the player has a limited reserve of Oxygen (depending on their life support, anywhere from 5-25 minutes) that turns on when their ship's Canopy is breached. If you fail to enter a station's airlock before the timer runs out, your ship explodes. For added difficulty, a canopy breach renders a large portion of the DiegeticHUD - crosshair, ETA, target position, etc - invisible as the holograms have nothing to project against.

* One ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' Sunday strip featured a poem Calvin wrote about alien invaders who, rather than landing on Earth and conquering it, simply drained its oceans and atmosphere.

-->The tube then sucked up the clouds and the air,\\
Causing no small amount of Earthling despair.\\
With nothing to breathe, we started to die.\\
"Help us! Please stop!" was the public outcry.

* Magic isn't ''supposed'' to be able to save you from vacuum if you're ThrownOutOfTheAirlock, but Damien from Literature/StarshipsMage is no ordinary mage. When [[spoiler: he and Grace are cast into deep space by an explosion, he manages to create an impermeable shield to hold their oxygen, while Grace (also a mage) cycles carbon dioxide into oxygen.]]

* In ''LEGORockRaiders'', most of the later caverns have a limited oxygen supply, and Sparks will continually warn: "Your air supply is running out!" until you build enough Support Stations to maintain the oxygen levels. The actual AlmostOutOfOxygen point is when he starts saying, "Your air supply is running low." and you can hear a heartbeat over the background music.
