* ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry 2: Diddy Kong's Quest'' has this trope in the final but not very final area of the game, just before the final but not really final boss, in a level called "Toxic Tower", in which the Kongs get transformed into a bouncy snake in order to bounce away from the ever rising toxic waste going all the way up till the finish. Nice.
* ''TraumaCenter: New Blood'' has the surgeons trapped in this. The way to escape? Solve a toy lock. Seriously.

* ''VideoGame/{{Onimusha}}'' has at least one example of this kind of trap. In a Sengoku-era castle, about 400 years prior to indoor plumbing. On the third floor. [[FridgeLogic Don't think about it too hard]].

* ''WesternAnimation/RockADoodle'': Snipes accidently causes one of these when his claustrophobia kicks in while they're trapped in a toy box going through an aqueduct pipe. He tries to peck his way out of the box, but this only ends up flooding the toy box. Luckily, they get out of the aqueduct pipe and get the lid of the toy box open before anyone drowns.
