* ''Film/{{Brannigan}}'' (1975). JohnWayne is targeted by a hit-man who rigs up a SawnOffShotgun behind his hotel room door. In case this fails, the hit-man plants a bomb in the toilet as well, knowing that a near-death experience would lead to a BringMyBrownPants reaction. Fortunately the Duke is smart enough to dodge both traps.
* ''Film/TheSoldier'' (1982). The hero forces his way into the US Embassy at gunpoint and has them place a phone call to his handler in the CIA, who turns on his desklamp to take down the message. Unfortunately a terrorist has filled the bulb with a flammable liquid that explodes when the light is turned on, killing the handler and preventing the Soldier from verifying his identity and passing on what he's discovered.

* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil'' had several of these peppered inside the mansion; one room would [[GasChamber fill with poison gas]] if you didn't seal the vents before pressing a button and another room would have the [[DescendingCeiling ceiling come down on you]] if you take the shotgun from the room next door. The underground leading to the laboratory had huge boulders that would start rolling down your path, crushing you instantly if you didn't find a place to duck into. The remake adds a few more traps, such an [[AdvancingWallOfDoom advancing spinning blade of doom]] and [[TheWallsAreClosingIn crushing walls]]. They occur throughout the rest of the series, including [[SpikesOfDoom spiked]] {{pit trap}}s and [[DescendingCeiling ceilings]], pitfalls into {{bottomless pit}}s, DeadlyGas traps as previously mentioned, a SaunaOfDeath, tripwire bombs, a gauntlet of pendulums, SmashingHallwayTrapsOfDoom, falling heavy objects, {{laser hallway}}s, {{Living Statue}}s, {{lava pit}}s, etc.

* ''[[FanFic/RealityChecksNyxverse Nyx's Family]]'': Rainbow Dash expects the Tomb of the Founders to have these, but Twilight and Professor Dubious insist (correctly) that there aren't - the tomb was in constant use, and putting up traps would just endanger the ponies using it. In his efforts to point out how ridiculous the idea is, Dubious then compares it to "laying booby traps around your kitchen", and is rather dumbfounded when Rainbow Dash says she HAS had to booby-trap her kitchen from time to time (non-lethally, of course), and explains why:
