* In FrankZappa's "Billy The Mountain", an earthquake causes an "[[EddieFisher Oh, my]] [[{{Pun}} Papa...]]", exposing "pools of poison gas, and obsolete germ bombs", although, in this case, the earthquake isn't caused by a fault-line, [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext but a mountain that got up and walked away]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', Applejack plants a flagpole on a fault line, causing an earthquake. The earthquake is so minor it doesn't affect the nearby house or crystal cave, but it creates a fissure that makes Holder's Boulder fall off a cliff.

* While it's a small one compared to many other examples, in ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' the eponymous crew fall into a fissure when an earthquake strikes just before they go in for the final showdown. A moment of drama and then they crawl out and wave.

* In the earthquake episode of SpikeTV's ''Surviving Disaster'', a massive earthquake along the New Madrid fault line (y'know, the one in ''mid-eastern U.S.'', the one that hasn't had a major earthquake since ''1812''?) creates an equally massive sinkhole in a park. Semi-justified in that stress along faults BUILDS the longer an area goes without a tremor to "relieve" the stress. Even in areas not a plate boundary, and IDontMeanDinnerPlates.
