** Then PlayedForLaughs when Kevin's mom uses a holy water trap on ''Kevin'', just in case it was actually demon coming through the door. Kevin is irritated that this keeps happening.
** Used horrifically in an episode of season nine, when a bucket trap dumps holy oil on an angel, which the trap then follows up by ''lighting him on fire''. Only the results are actually seen onscreen, which are gruesome enough.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'', "Just One Patty": Squidward discovers that the Krusty Krab's security system involves a bucket full of gasoline over the front door... and a lit match... [[FridgeLogic underwater, somehow]]... For obvious reasons, this is sometimes cut out.

For obvious reasons, this is sometimes cut out.out; for example the United States has not seen this full scene in reruns since late 2001. The most the U.S. airing had shown is the first explosion but even later edits change the scene to Squidward looking through the front doors before the camera pans towards the Vault through the order window.

* 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.
