* In the ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' episode "Bottomless pit" Dipper, Mabel, Soos and Stan fall into a bottomless pit. As they just keep falling, they start telling each other stories. At the end of the episode [[spoiler:they see they are falling towards a light. As they "hit" it, they fly out of the same hole they just fell into, and no time has passed.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'': The Abyss of Nothingness from the first season, which is described in its debut by Heloise as "just a big hole", though Lucius (in the same episode) goes further to explain that "it's a dark, dreary place filled with misery and despair." That being said, characters have ended up in the place, [[ResetButton return the next episode without explanation]].

* A key mechanic in a few jumping puzzles in ''VideoGame/GuildWars2''. The main challenge of the first half of the Windy Cave mini dungeon is fighting/avoiding enemies on a very narrow bridge through a bottomless pit that instantly kills the character. The Forsaken Fortune mini-dungeon has a jumping puzzle section that's a strange hybrid of this and NonLethalBottomlessPit; fall off a ledge and your character dies quickly, but you are slowly resurrected back at a checkpoint at the beginning of the puzzle.

* ''VideoGame/XCom Enforcer'' has a level spanning across the roofs of high-rise buildings. The landing makes a crater decal rather than simply entering the normal death animation.

* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' series has several deep pits to fall in, but nearly all of them have a bottom, even if it is ''very'' far down. There are space levels though in the first and second games where you could fall into what would logically be a bottomless pit.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Nidhogg}}'' features these, which the fencers can take advantage of by dive kicking one another into it for a quick kill, especially if they lost their sword. Some have conveyor belts and crumbling floors leading into them. If both fencers fall it, the right of way resets, forcing both fencers to fight to gain it.

** Speaking of boots, at one point while [[ItMakesSenseInContext Chell and GLaDOS are falling down a bottomless pit together]], [=GLaDOS=] chooses this time to deliver some exposition after snarking ''"since we are not going anywhere - well, we '''are''' going '''somewhere'''; alarmingly fast, actually..."''

* 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]]
