** A chandelier falls on a {{mook}} in ''[[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries The New Batman Adventures]]'' in the episode "Joker's Millions". He'd emptied his submachine gun into the ceiling during a GunStruggle, so he could only blame himself when the ceiling struck back.

* In ''VideoGame/TheDarksideDetective'', while exploring the Don's mansion, [=McQueen=] and Dooley see a chandelier and immediately note that it would do a lot of damage if it fell on someone. Sure enough, the main puzzle in the mansion involves a monster standing directly underneath the chandelier.

* ''VideoGame/EnterTheGungeon'' allows you to invoke this on some rooms of the Keep chamber (i.e. the very first floor). Each chandelier has a corresponding chain fastened somewhere on a nearby wall: Shooting it out will cause the chandelier to fall and explode, one-hitting most monsters standing below. The monsters can shoot it out too, but never on purpose, so unless you're very unlucky, the worst that'll happen will be a wasted chance to watch your enemies go ''splat''.
