* In ''ComicBook/GothamCityGarage'', ComicBook/LexLuthor's secret underground facility is protected with traps such like laser hallways and turret guns built in elevator shafts. ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}, ComicBook/{{Catwoman}} and ComicBook/{{Nightwing}} find them annoying and trite. Especially Nightwing.
-->'''Nightwing:''' Laser hallway. How cliché. What's next, the floor is lava? A room filled with sharks?

** In the "Emperor Joker" episode, SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker with his newly acquired RealityWarper powers puts Batman in a RubeGoldberg of a DeathTrap. Batman escapes, [[spoiler:but not really, as his escape triggered the last part of it and he gets killed. SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker then revives him and kills him repeatedly in more death traps afterwards.]]

* [[WhateleyUniverse Mephisto the Mentalist]] once explains at great length the psychology of death traps: most of them are meant to either distract the heroes while the villain sets up some other, more mundane plot, or to scare the victim into compliance without actually killing them. In both of those instances, the victims are actually ''meant'' to be rescued as [[ThePowerOfActing part of the intended effect]]. He does admit that a lot of death traps are, in fact, actually meant to kill the victim, usually with the goal of scaring the piss out of someone else who is the real target of their plot.
