* 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.

** A minor subversion occurs in ''Film/GoldenEye'': the elevator reaches its destination and the doors open, revealing Natalia apparently unconscious on the floor as a guard walks in in confusion. Cue Bond dropping down from the ceiling and smashing him into the wall while Natalia gets up!
** In ''Film/QuantumOfSolace'', Bond dispatches four guards in about as many seconds while riding an elevator.

** Discussed and ultimately subverted in Creator/TimothyZahn's novel, ''Scoundrels''. A captured prisoner being escorted upstairs via [[CallARabbitASmeerp turbolift]] recounts various reasons why, despite the trope's popularity, trying to subdue his captors while in the lift is a ''bad'' idea -- surrounded by enemies ([[GenreSavvy who are likely familiar with this trope]]), nowhere to run, with an unknown fate waiting at the end of the ride. The turbolift does make an excellent place to undo his restraints, though... and the turbolift ''lobby'' an excellent place to spring his ambush.

** [[Recap/StarWarsRebelsS3E20ZeroHourPartII "Zero Hour"]]: An offscreen one, when [[spoiler:Kallus beats up the stormtroopers ordered to [[ThrownOutTheAirlock throw him out an airlock]]. We see them going into the elevator, Kallus smirking, and the doors close. When we come back, the doors open and Kallus is [[WithMyHandsTied taking off his handcuffs]] with the stormtroopers behind him, unconscious.]]
