* Lampshaded and played straight simultaneously in the ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'s first confrontation with DoctorDoom: 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]].

Sure, [[BondVillainStupidity he could just shoot them, but what's the fun in that]]? So, he instead comes up with an [[ComplexityAddiction over-elaborate]], bizarre, and sadistic means to murder his heroic adversary in some [[CouldHaveBeenMessy potentially]] horrific fashion. Hence, the DeathTrap.

The hero is often (but not always) delivered to the DeathTrap via a TrapDoor. See BoobyTrap or DeathCourse for death-traps used as protection rather than execution (never mind that such obstacles [[NoOSHACompliance tend to be more deadly]] to [[{{Mooks}} incompetent henchmen]] than the heroes).

* Although victim to the usual power fluctuation of comic book universes, TheDCU's {{Darkseid}} never attempts to kill Comicbook/{{Superman}} by using his consistently effective vaporizing Omega Beam. Rather, he prefers to inflict pain by slow and agonizing methods, from which Superman inevitably breaks free.
