* 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.

* In TheAmtrakWars books the [[MilitaryMashupMachine Wagon Trains]] do vent steam; it's used as a close-range defense system, and capable of blasting the flesh right off your bones.

* And how can anyone forget the scenes in ''Franchise/StarWars'', where Darth Vader walks dramatically through steam exhausts that for some reason are set around the ship's main entrance. Made even weirder, though more {{Badass}}, in the [[Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse novelizations]], which claim that the steam is burning hot and that normal people won't exit until it's evaporated. This is actually {{lampshade|Hanging}}d as a security feature to prevent assaults or sabotage when docking.

Added DiffLines:

->''"The factory is a stock 'bad guy’s lair', complete with machinery full of lights that blink on and off randomly, as well as lots of foggy corridors and steam jets. Where would evil masterminds be without steam jets?"''

* While not a spaceship, Raising Heart from ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' usually discharges ''some'' kind of gas after any particularly impressive attack.

* The original ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Classic}}'' pilot does this. Starbuck and Cassiopeia are seen kissing in the hangar bay, while Starbuck's other love interest catches them by surveillance camera. Cue the push of a "Steam Vent" button.
** The pilot of the [[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined re-imagined version]] had Ragnar Station. Justified, as [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot Leoben]] had just ripped a steam pipe. The rest of the station wasn't really steamy at all.
