** Subverted in the ''Severed'' DLC for ''Videogame/DeadSpace2''. At one point, you come along a large elevator in the mining tunnels and begin a slow descent, when everything suddenly stops. It's quiet, your only light source are flashing red lights on the lift, and any GenreSavvy player is likely expecting an oncoming onslaught of Necromorphs. This atmosphere remains for a solid minute. [[spoiler: Cue the brakes failing out of nowhere and the elevator falling at full speed towards the ground, [[HellIsThatNoise an unholy squeal emanating from the grinding metal]] as you make your way down.]] [[DoubleSubversion Double Subverted]] when you end up fighting Necromorphs on the elevator anyways - [[spoiler: you just have to do it hanging upside-down off the edge.]]

Compare ElevatorEscape, where the action comes from the villain or monster reaching through the closing elevator doors. See also EvilElevator. Sister trope of CableCarActionSequence. Has nothing to do with the ''Elevator Action'' series of video games, which has you fighting people pretty much everywhere ''except'' the elevators.

** ''DoubleDragonNeon'' first has a straight example in Mission 8 reminiscent of ''HeavyBarrel'', jetpack mooks included, then a raft ride on the ManEatingPlant's jaw at the beginning of Mission 9.

* ''Series/Cannon}}'': In "Dead Pigeon", two thugs are dragging Cannon out of the BigBad's office to take him somewhere quiet to dispose of him. As the elevator doors open, Cannon punches one of the thugs in the face to drive him away from the doors. He jumps in the elevator as the second thug grapples him and gets dragged in, as the doors shut in the first thug's face. The scene then cuts to the doors opening in the ground floor and a bruised and battered Cannon steps out over the body of the unconscious thug.

** One of the multiple fights against Dark Samus in ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime 2: Echoes'' takes place on an elevator. The first few moments of the fight take place as the elevator is moving upward and the rest of the fight takes place in the room where the elevator stops.
** There's a quasi-elevator battle in ''Prime 3'''s Skytown (if you call it an elevator that only goes down, and has a massive nuclear bomb attached to it).

* Danny Reagan and Maria Baez corner a pair of potential suspects in an elevator they all are sharing in a season 7 episode of ''Series/BlueBloods''. Rather than simply pin them to the wall and cuff them (they had the positional advantage as the two got onto the elevator with their backs to the police), they draw their weapons, which only cause the other two to pull out their own guns and results in a shootout that only fills about twenty square feet of space, leaving both of the suspects dead at the scene.
