* In ''TheTenthKingdom'', our heroes get past this trap in an unusual way: the father has had it at that point, so he picks up the toad who serves as the keeper and [[TakeAThirdOption tosses him into the corridor beyond one of the doors]], which immediately erupts into flame. They then decide to take the other door.
* ''TheMonkees'' - In the episode �Monkee Chow Mein,� Micky and Peter must choose between four doors to escape sudden death from the clutches of [[YellowPeril evil Chinese Restaurateurs]].

* '"WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'': In "Affair Weather Friends", Mac, [[DrunkOnMilk on a sugar bender]], goes through the house of Bloo's new friend Barry and opens several doors trying to find him. One closet contains various possessions and a photo of a family that doesn't look like Barry's, the next is a StalkerShrine to Bloo, and the next contains said family BoundAndGagged.

* The WarnerBros ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' had an episode where Batman and Robin had to save Commisioner Gordon from a virtual reality simulation constructed by ComicBook/TheRiddler. The first obstacle Batman encounters is a DoorRoulette. This being the Riddler, however, the doors were all labeled with clues as to what was behind them. The door labeled "crazy intent", you guessed it, had an oncoming locomotive.
