* The literal-minded citizens of Lancre in the ''{{Discworld}}'' have a tourist attraction called The Place Where The Sun Does Not Shine. this is implied to be a bottomless pit, but apparently lots of unusual things show up there, such as undesirable jobs, improbable excuses and things which imply a degree of physical pain and discomfort.

* Pretty much black holes in RealLife[[note]]According to General Relativity, gravity warps space-time and the larger it's the larger that warp is. A way to picture that it is to consider space-time as a rubber lattice with bodies on it, and forming wells more or less deep on it depending of their masses and/or densities. A black hole is the equivalent of an infinitely deep well -a bottomless pit-.[[/note]]

***Then again, ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations'', as a game pulling stages from across Sonic's history, ''introduced'' bottomless pits to areas where there weren't any before.

* ''VideoGame/StreetsOfRage'' has these in one stage. If a player character falls into one, instant life loss. If an enemy falls into one, they're not coming back. In the penultimate stage, an outdoor elevator climb, jumping off or being knocked off the elevator has the same function. ''Streets of Rage 2'' does away with them, but they come back in ''Streets of Rage 3''[='=]s Stage 3, where enemies will die as usual upon falling into one but players will [[DownplayedTrope simply bounce out with a lot of health lost]].

*''VideoGame/{{Gigantic}}'' has these, usually around the edges of maps. A favored tactic of many players involves pushing enemy heroes into them by using abilities with knockback.

** It is important to note, however, that the Void is impossible to fall into in survival mode, except in [[TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon The End]]. Unless you count things like mods, cheats, glitches, custom superflat worlds, and edited maps.

* The original ''Franchise/TombRaider'' series generally doesn't use bottomless pits, just really deep ones (or ones with SpikesOfDoom or lava etc. at the bottom); sometimes the Game Over screen appears before you hit bottom. There are a few apparently-bottomless pits in the next-gen series.

* ''VideoGame/Ultima V'' has many pits, but only one location where they are "bottomless." Stonegate, where the Shadowlords dwell, has lethal pit traps ending in a lava sea.
