** In "Prophets", several mooks are waiting for Root in a hotel lobby. First the ''L'' appears in one lift indicator, then in all the others. After several lifts open at once a smoke grenade rolls out, eventually followed by Root when the lobby is full of smoke.

* ''The Art of War'' (2000). The villain is in a hall of elevators, which start opening at random around him one by one. The hero then steps out from the end of the corridor, not having been in the elevator at all, so it was apparently just done for MindScrew.

* ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex''. In the first episode of ''2nd Gig'', a terrorist has a look of surprise when the lift opens to reveal an empty elevator, only to be shot in the face by Batou who's wearing [[InvisibilityCloak thermoptic camouflage]]. Incidentally Batou isn't happy at being ordered to go up in the elevator; the only reason the Major told him to do so was because the terrorists were expecting the attack to come via the roof or stairs, and had the hostages there as a HumanShield, plus she used a ghost-hacked terrorist to kill most of the other terrorists waiting in ambush.

The scene serves as BookEnds [[spoiler:when Batou and the Major use the empty elevator trope to assassinate the BigBad in the final episode, sniping him from an unexpected direction when he's surrounded by CIA bodyguards.]]
