* ''Series/FatherBrown'': A sabotaged lift is used as a murder weapon in "The Crackpot of the Empire". The killer knew that the victim's selfishness would make him demand to be the first into lift, which then immediately plunged to the bottom of the shaft.

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' has one such elevator malfunction: [[spoiler:In the [[PacifistRun "pacifist" route]], you discover that the bathroom in Alphys's lab is actually an elevator. You take it to learn some awful truths that Alphys has decided it's time to reveal...but then the elevator malfunctions from a power failure, and it falls for what feels like a few hundred meters before finally crashing. You get out, but now you're stuck in the True Laboratory until you restore elevator power.]]

* Being set in a part of central London that has numerous tower blocks, [[Series/LondonsBurning Blue Watch]] have to respond to a lot of these. On one occasion the crew themselves get stuck in an elevator while trying to get to the top floor and the motor room so they can free some trapped members of the public.

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' had an episode start with Terry and his girlfriend Dana in an elevator that goes into freefall. Terry luckily makes it stop between floors, where they realize that it wasn't just their elevator that had failed, every computer controlled device in the city had gone haywire.
