* In the 1949 film ''I Was a Male War Bride'', French army captain Henri Rochard (CaryGrant) experiences a variation on this trope. In the hallway of a U.S. Army office building in post-war Germany, he experiences AcronymAndAbbreviationOverload in a hallway filled with solid office doors labeled with alphabet soup acronyms. He recites what he thinks the acronym on each door means until he comes to the women's restroom. He starts to recite what he thinks the acronym "LADIES" might stand for when a female corporal walks out.

* There was once a recurring ArchieComics strip called ''Open the Door, Dilton'', where Dilton Doiley would open doors leading to {{Visual Pun}}s based on their labels; a door leading to 'Tennis Court' featured a player being sentenced a $500 fee for a double-fault by the judge, and a 'Roller Derby' had people racing derby hats on wheels.

* The Literature/HarryPotter example in Film, above, also applies for the book that preceded the film. In fact, in the book there's actually a scene where the doors spin around the group like an actual roulette wheel.

* The second of Creator/EdgarRiceBurroughs' ''Venus'' novels had one of these: only one of the room's multiple doors led to safety; all the others were deathtraps. (Once the jailers brought you in and left, the lights went out and the floor spun for a while so you'd lose track of which was the safe door.) Food and drink were provided -- most of it poisoned. Oh, and to discourage hesitation, after a while dangerous snakes started slithering in.

* 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]].
