* In ''Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace'' for the Nintendo 64, one early level has your character traversing ventilation shafts containing spinning fans that can be fallen onto. If you fall onto one, you are instantly chopped into small pieces, with the pieces still screaming for a moment afterwards.

*VideoGame/RatchetAndClankIntoTheNexus has rotating blades within the ventilation of the Meero Museum. Fortunately, they do not spin fast enough to pose a threat to the player, and only serves to point them in the right direction.

* Airplane propeller blades and/or blade tips are usually marked with yellow and/or stripes to warn anyone from walking into spinning propeller when the propeller is revolving. Still, accidents do happen. amazingly, people are known to have survived such incidents.

This is TruthInTelevision to an extent, as fans can be very destructive and very deadly; after all, this is the same principle on which a blender or lawnmower operates. That said, in fiction this effect tends to be greatly exaggerated - an ordinary domestic fan with ordinary plastic/wooden blades will at most give you a (rather) bruised finger in normal circumstances.

** Skydivers are taught ''always'' to approach an airplane for boarding from behind. In Estonia, an experienced skydiveress walked into the propeller of the jump plane in 2008, with fatal results.

* Subverted on ''Series/MyNameIsEarl''. After Earl tipped over his ex-wife's trailer home on a bender, and was unable to rent a crane to lift it up again, Joy and Darnell were making do with the sideways trailer. The ceiling fan ended up being on a wall instead of on the ceiling, and it lopped off one of Joy's pigtails, much to her anger. Otherwise, it did no real harm or damage.

* This is the stage fatality in the Prison stage of ''VideoGame/MortalKombat4'', naturally. Though the fan is starting up at the beginning of the match and gains momentum, it starts speeding up when the stage finisher starts. It's also unique in that it doesn't have the winner simply uppercut the opponent into the thing, but rather grabbing an arm and a leg and spinning just fast enough to throw them into the blender without missing.
** In ''MortalKombatX'', we have Kenshi, basically a blind samurai with [[MindOverMatter telekinetic powers]], whose fatality involves throwing his sword and commanding it to spin mid-air, then lifting up his opponent and moving them towards the spinning blade.
