* In ''VideoGame/BorderlandsThePreSequel'', when the Vault Hunters first arrive on Elpis and meet Janey Springs, she informs them that as soon as they leave the vacuum-sealed moonshot cannon shell they arrived in the oxygen will vent and their eyes will pop like grapes. Fortunately, they don't have to worry about this in-game, though everyone except Claptrap still has to worry about keeping their oxygen supply up while in a vacuum.[[/folder]]

vacuum.
* The ''VideoGame/UnrealTournament'' map "DM-Pressure" has a room that works this way. Pushing a button outside the room causes it to seal up and depressurize, causing anyone trapped inside to swell up and eventually explode. [[SchmuckBait There are goodies in the room meant to lure players and bots inside.]][[/folder]]

** An early book shows he does indeed know, from personal experience. In ''[[Literature/TheHanSoloTrilogy The Paradise Snare]]'' he remembers having to clean up after someone cycled the airlock to kill themselves, and it was apparently quite messy. So the trope is played straight there.

* A variation in [[http://nicegif.com/gif/12352 this gif]] which shows a crab on the ocean floor walking into a crack in a pipe in which the pressure is apparently much lower than the ambient pressure. Resembles the above mentioned scene from Alien, except a lot faster.

* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', Gremmy Thoumeaux uses his ImaginationBasedSuperpower to form a pocket of outer space around Kenpachi Zaraki. Kenpachi screams in silent agony as his lungs start to burst and his eyes almost pop out of his head... then being [[{{Badass}} Kenpachi]], simply flies out of the pocket and slashes at Gremmy.

** The {{irony}} is that this was ''[[DidntSeeThatComing the one contingency they didn't plan for]]''. Scientists later figured out that the leak was slow enough that they could've carried enough oxygen on-board the capsule to flood it with air and keep it pressurized throughout re-entry if a valve like that one were stuck.
