* As mentioned in the page quote, "Booby Trap" is the title of the first episode of ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' (and ''Anime/{{Robotech}}''). It refers to the SDF-1/''Macross'' having been set up to automatically fire at any Zentradi ships when they approached it.

* In ''Literature/TheWitchlands'', the Nomatsi roads are packed up to brim with traps, ranging from snares and poisonous plants to spike holls and bear traps. They are marked in a way that only someone raised among the Nomatsi would notice and recognize, as their main purpose is to discourage or kill any outsider who'd wish to enter a Nomatsi camp.

* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': Gordon makes, not one but two traps for Sam, so that the first one would act as a RedHerring and Sam wouldn't expect the second one, which triggered an explosion.

* In the GauntsGhosts novel ''Salvation's Reach'', the Ghosts attack a heavily fortified Chaos facility on an asteroid. While one group stages a frontal assault as a diversion, the rest of the regiment are trying to infiltrate from the others side through sections of the facility that have been abandoned. However, the Chaos forces booby trapped all the unused rooms and teams of sappers and specially trained snipers have to go ahead of the main force and painstakingly disarm all the traps. As they get deeper into the facility, the traps get more elaborate and the soldiers get tired and start making mistakes. The success of the mission hinges on whether the Ghosts can reach their target before they run out of sappers.
