* Mocked in ''VideoGame/TheSecretOfMonkeyIsland'', when Guybrush is thrown off a pier tied to an idol. He ''cannot'' reach any of the sharp objects in view to free himself. He ''can'' [[spoiler: pick up the idol itself and put it in his pocket, at which point [[ArtisticLicensePhysics he can swim to the surface as if the idol is not encumbering him]].]]

** Mobsters Mugsy and Rocky try this on Characters/BugsBunny (referred to as "Agent Elegant Mess") in the short "The Unmentionables", with an ignorant Bugs protesting, "Look, fellas, how many times do I have to tell you? I haven't got a cold!" while the cement is being poured. Bugs later manages to hop out of the lake he was thrown into after the gangsters leave.

* Referenced in ''KingdomOfLoathing'' with the penguin mafia's cement sandals, which "aren't quite heavy enough to make you sleep with the fishes, but they're heavy enough so that you get a workout just by walking around". They reduce your combat initiative, but let you level up your muscle stat faster.

* ''CityOfHeroes'': This trope is occasionally played out by mobs. If you kill the mobs before they throw their intended victim into the water, they ''hop away'', Cement Shoes and all.
