* As seen in the above picture, the Practical Joker once did this to ComicBook/{{Superman}} by rigging the bucket ''over a wall'', correctly predicting that Superman would burst through it, [[ThereWasADoor à la Kool-Aid Man]].
* The first Superman[=/=]ComicBook/SpiderMan team-up comic, made back in the 1970s, had [[{{Jerkass}} Steve Lombard]] trying to pull this gag on Clark Kent. However, Clark ([[ClarkKenting a.k.a. You-Know-Who]]) uses his SuperBreath to prevent the bucket from falling. When Steve checks out the gag, he gets drenched.
* Superman's foe the Prankster once rigged up a lethal variant involving a water tank holding several hundred gallons of water suspended above an aircraft hangar door. If his kidnap victim, Perry White, managed to escape, opening the door would release the tank.

* Done fairly horrifically in ''MonkeyDust''. Noodles, a Bugs Bunny-esque cartoon rabbit, takes revenge on the scientists who perform experiments on him by propping an anvil on a door. Needless to say, the scientist doesn't spring back into shape two seconds later.
