* Used for a BondOneLiner in ''Film/{{Commando}}'' when [[Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger John Matrix]] impales Bennett with a pipe that somehow keeps emitting steam long after Matrix has pulled it off the wall and thrown it through Bennett's chest. Apparently Matrix threw it with such force it went through Bennett's body and into the boiler behind him.
-->'''Matrix:''' Let off some steam, Bennett.

* In the intro level for ''Super VideoGame/{{Metroid}}'', Samus needs to escape a space station, while avoiding gushes of steam coming out from practically everywhere. If you get hit by the steam, you lose precious time to escape.

** And in the [[MetroidPrime Metroid Prime]] Trilogy, it seems every other hallway is spewing steam all the time, made more evident by the fact that we see the condensation on Samus' visor.

* Larry Niven's Smoke Ring setting includes rockets that travel inside the Smoke Ring, on jets of live steam. It is unpleasant if they malfunction. [[spoiler: The novel Smoke Ring has such a malfunction in an early scene. One victim has the misfortune to not be killed immediately when engulfed by live steam from the exploding ship. There is a brief mention of one of the already-known characters trying to catch the victim as she goes by, grabbing her ankle...and the flesh coming off in the would-be rescuer's hand.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Like the Alien example above, excessive steam is a recurring motif in RidleyScott's work, particularly Bladerunner with large amounts of steam drifting through the building when Deckard tries to escape Roy.

* The "Flush Coolant" command in most ''VideoGame/MechWarrior'' video games resulted in a greenish cloud of gas forming underneath your mech as your reactor quickly cooled. Sadly not present in Mechwarrior Online.
