* Lampshaded and played straight simultaneously in the ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'s first confrontation with Doctor Doom: He captures them, places them in situations which could kill them, then explains to his temporary ally Arcade that he doesn't care if they escape or not. If they don't, he's rid of them; if they do, he gains valuable information concerning their skills and powers. [[XanatosGambit Either way, he benefits]].

* In Creator/RobertEHoward's Literature/ConanTheBarbarian story "Literature/TheScarletCitadel", Tsotha captures Conan only to get him to AbdicateTheThrone; when that fails, he chains him where a giant snake will get him. Unfortunately, a {{Revenge}} seeking man intervenes.

* The ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "Read It and Weep" has, in its [[ShowWithinAShow Book Within A Show]], [[IndianaJones Daring]] [[AffectionateParody Do]] encounters a huge variety of these, ranging from dart traps to throwing axes to flame pits to the entire chamber flooding with lava. Then Ahuizotl has perhaps the most awesomely silly - it has [[SpikesOfDoom spikes]] on [[TheWallsAreClosingIn advancing walls]], quicksand, spiders ''and cobras''. While Daring was tied to a table, no less. It's like he got everything from the "Cliche Deathtrap" aisle at Murdermart, and decided to use as many of them as possible at once.
