Sometimes this is done purposely by [[DastardlyWhiplash the villain]] (like tying the DamselInDistress to railroad tracks) as part of (or in place of) a DeathTrap, or as a method of interrogation (as an alternative to physical torture). Thus, often a part of LumberMillMayhem. Still others, the hero may wind up in such predicament by more or less coincidence, but still have to find a way to escape whatever machinations whose job of processing and/or assembling raw materials is invariably lethal to their soft warm bodies. Commonly seen in large mechanized factories, mills, mines, research labs -- or any place with NoOSHACompliance. This may also provide the reason why the heroes always end up trying to run against the direction of the conveyor instead of, say, trying to leap off the side - it may be OneDimensionalThinking on the part of the writer, or perhaps the conveyor belt is situated high up [[JustifiedTrope where there really is nowhere else to jump to]].

* ''RoboRally'', a board game by RichardGarfield, has lots of these. If you aren't careful, they'll carry your robot off the board and/or into a bottomless pit.

* In ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', the deathtrap is neatly subverted, as Catwoman is carried to her doom while Batman has captured Harley Quinn, who tells him that he has to [[SadisticChoice choose]] whether to keep her or save Catwoman. As it turns out, all Batman has to do is [[TakeAThirdOption reach for the conveniently placed power switch to turn off the conveyor belt]].

[[folder:Films -- Animated]] * Played straight in the New Zealand movie ''FootrotFlats: A Dog's Tale'' - the main canine character, Dog, ends up on a conveyor belt that is moving towards a swinging circular sawblade, three very vicious, very evil dogs surrounding the sides, ensuring he doesn't escape. He does, of course.

* The ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short "The Ducksters" begins with PorkyPig tied on a conveyor belt to a buzzsaw as part of a quiz show hosted by WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck (he had to answer the question before reaching the saw). At the end, Daffy is on the receiving end of the conveyor belt after Porky buys the radio station with his prize money and turns the tables on him. Daffy, apparently ''doesn't'' know the answer to his question and instead [[IsThereADoctorInTheHouse yells for a doctor.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/SheZow'' had Kelly Hamdon, who is being tied up to a log by a villain, and placed on a conveyor belt heading towards a rocket ship, about to plunge into the sun. If it weren't for her big brother, Kelly could have been french fried (YUM!) or sunburned (THAT REALLY DOES HURT!)

If it weren't for her big brother, Kelly could have been french fried (YUM!) or sunburned (THAT REALLY DOES HURT!)HURT!). As the rocket ship (containing Kelly) goes into the sun, the superhero(ine) uses a space pod which in turn is attached to the ship's hull and rescue his big sister from plunging into the sun, much to his dismay. While the rocket ship is heading towards the sun (with the space pod attached), Maz used a space shuttle (and some rope) to pull the rocket ship away from the sun and back towards earth.
