* Overly expensive videogame ''SteelBattalion'' combined this with a {{Roguelike}} twist. If you didn't eject in time and died with your mech, your game data was erased.

--> MechCommander 1: The [[GlassCannon Hunchback]] finds itself on the wrong end of a [[LightningBruiser Mad Cat's]] long range missiles and ER Large Lasers. With smoke rising in the cockpit and alarms sounding, the pilot gives the triple call over the comm as he straps down and hits the lever.
--> Mechwarrior 3: Mad Cat vs. [[MightyGlacier Atlas]]. Atlas [[CurbStompBattle winning handily]] (despite missing an arm already) -but too close to survive the resulting core breach. Seeing the characteristic flash, the Atlas pilot ejects.

** The HUD for tanks and hovercraft in ''Living Legends'' flashes the warning "[[http://www.mechlivinglegends.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/mwll-tankhud-concept01.jpg PROCEED TO EMERGENCY ESCAPE HATCHES]]" and "BAIL OUT", when critically damaged and when the fusion reactor is breached. The Chevalier tank will also sound off a klaxon warning when the warnings appear.

* ''{{Titanfall}}'' has your [[HumongousMecha Titan's]] computer say this to you when your Titan takes critical damage or you just decide to eject on your own.

** One might wonder how ejecting themselves into space might help anyone.
*** According to the [[AllThereInTheManual manual]], their flight suits contain a force field system to keep in atmosphere. In battles that include other ships besides fighters, there's usually a shuttle flying around scooping pilots out of the sky. TIE Fighter pilots on the other hand have to wear a full spacesuit, since their fighter doesn't have any built-in life support, so if theirs is a model upgraded with an ejection seat (or in the rare instances when it's disabled but they have enough time to simply pop the hatch and climb out) they can theoretically survive much longer before being rescued.
**** This would still be of limited use when ejecting over an enemy vessel (such as the Death Star) that your partners are in the process of trying to blow up.

** Since it's a series about pilots, this happens very often in the XWingSeries. [[CaptainCrash Hobbie Klivian]] in particular gets it a lot.
