** In "Headhunter", [[MasterComputer Orac]] puts ''Scorpio'' into LockDown to prevent the MonsterOfTheWeek from escaping. It resonds by shutting down life support, but fortunately the crew get into a rescue suit in time. Avon then has to break quarantine to rescue them, as the suits have limited oxygen supply.

* ''Series/BlakesSeven''
** In "City at the Edge of the World", Vila and Kerril are unexpectedly teleported to an automated spacecraft, where a recorded voice informs them they will remain alive only as long as the air that was teleported with them lasts. When they don't die as expected, Vila realises that air is filtering through the ForcefieldDoor from a habitable planet outside, as the spacecraft has reached its destination.

It is also very possible to die from [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypoxia_%28medical%29 hypoxia]] per se. Compare DrowningPit and TrappedInASinkingCar which are deliberate DeathTrap variants of this.

[[folder:Anime]]
* ''Manga/{{Planetes}}'': Used rather tragically in the climax. Cheerful Idealist Ai Tanabe is trying to make it to shelter across the lunar desert while carrying an injured companion [[spoiler:who is also now a terrorist and criminal.]] Ai refuses to leave her behind, even though the extra weight is slowing her down and burning her oxygen faster. She doesn't make it to shelter before her air runs out, and is faced with the choice of taking the other person's oxygen tank so that she will survive, or letting them both die. [[spoiler:She chooses not to take the oxygen; in the next clip we see her falling on the ground screaming and clawing at her throat while the terrorist sends up a flare gun to signal for help (ensuring her own capture and imprisonment.) Ai is later seen to have survived, but is permanently damaged.]]
