* ''Videogame/SunlessSea'': The ''Zubmariner'' expansion has an oxygen meter whenever you've submerged, which can be refilled by resurfacing and finding vents in the zeefloor. It lowers slowly, so there's usually little risk of running out unless there's a fire on board or you're distracted, but if you get low on it you will have to resort to desperate measures to consume less, including ejecting wounded crewmen through the airlock.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''[[VideoGame/FTLFasterThanLight FTL: Faster Than Light]]'', both the player's ship and enemy ship have oxygen systems that maintain oxygen throughout the ship, and rooms that don't have oxygen in them will quickly drain the health of everyone in that room (with some minor exceptions). This trope comes into play when the player's oxygen system is damaged (or worse, breached) and the crew are otherwise distracted; running from the medbay to the oxygen system to patch up the room and restore functionality, all while the global ship supply drops below 10% capacity, can be harrowing.

* In ''TheLydianOption'', the Tha'Latta use venting the atmosphere as a method of quelling prison riots in their asteroid prison - killing all of the prisoners inside. The human prisoners are forced to seek an escape facing an imminent venting.

* 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.
