* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks'', the girls get locked in a room and ineffectually push and tackle the door, then Spike and DJ Pon-3 arrive and reveal it opens inward. The novelization [[JustifiedTrope provides a better reason]] why they couldn't escape: the door was bolted shut and DJ Pon-3 had to pry it open with a crowbar.

* On ''Webcomic/SequentialArt'', Scarlet and Art end up [[http://www.collectedcurios.com/sequentialart.php?s=108 both trying to push the same door at the same time from either side]].



* Happens twice in ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy''. The first case is in "Read All About Ed", when Ed tries to deliver a paper to a fenced-in house, but can't pull the tall fence door open. He then tries to leap clean over the door, only to get his pants snagged on the top of the frame. When he calls Edd for help, Edd pushes the door open, smacking Ed into the fence in the process. The second case is in "Too Smart For His Own Ed", and this time it's ''Edd'' that falls victim to this. After Ed wins the spelling bee, Edd is left flustered and unable to think clearly, so when he tries to enter the cafeteria and can't push the door open, he thinks it's locked at first, until Ed of all people points out he was supposed to pull it. (Spelling pull right, but reading it backwards.)

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVcUR2s4uEA The subject of a montage]] in the sixth season of ''Series/AmericanIdol''. It's worth noting that ALL those doors are double doors both of which are "push" doors but one of them is locked closed. That's illegal. People do it all the time but it's still illegal. If there's a fire people won't be able to/have time to/be allowed by the rest of the crowd to go to the other door; they'll get crushed up against that door by the fleeing mob and die. Another note is that the final clip shows that the lock ''broke'' inbetween her adrenaline-fueled push and the consistent abuse it had taken.

If there's a fire people won't be able to/have time to/be allowed by the rest of the crowd to go to the other door; they'll get crushed up against that door by the fleeing mob and die. Notably, some of the doors in the clip had handles which the auditionees had tried to pull, others were purely push doors. Another note is that the final clip shows that the lock ''broke'' inbetween her adrenaline-fueled push and the consistent abuse it had taken. Simon even says "other door" as she's bursting out of it, the reflex apparently having become ingrained from so many that had tried to go through the locked door.

* Donald Norman's seminal book on design, [[http://bactra.org/reviews/everyday-things/ The Psychology of Everyday Things]], devotes nearly an entire chapter to describing how the design of door handles leads people to make this mistake.
