Otherwise, most such traps act in exactly the same way as {{Death Trap}}s. Explosives are a particular favorite, as they will also destroy the installation involved. Expect a [[DefensiveFeintTrap retreating character to trick a pursuer into it.]] Naturally a feature of the DeathCourse and TempleOfDoom.

* 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.
