* Manga/TheKindaichiCaseFiles uses this trope multiple times as a murder method. So far all of the victims are women.
** Two of three separate murder cases involving Literature/ThePhantomOfTheOpera as [[ScoobyDooHoax the culprit's persona]] involve this scenario. The very first case only has the victim died from a falling stage light. The second one[[note]]This is available in light novel and movie premier of Kindaichi anime[[/note]] is a subversion since [[spoiler:the victim had already died before the chandelier fell on the victim]]. The third one is a straight version of this since the victim looks up the chandelier and it instantly falls on her.
** Kindaichi Returns case "Black Spirit Hotel Murder Case" combines this trope with LightsOffSomebodyDies. In the middle of filming a horror movie, a chandelier falls down after a blackout occurs and kills an actress sitting below it, making people believe that the culprit is someone not present during the shoot. [[spoiler: In reality, the killer replaced the screws holding the chandelier up with an electromagnet beforehand. This way said chandelier will surely fall when blackout occurs.]]

* ''[[http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Hop-Frog Hop-Frog]]'' by EdgarAllanPoe has an interesting variation. Instead of having the chandelier hanging overhead, it has been lowered to the floor at the beginning of the MasqueradeBall. The doom part comes in when the [[ManipulativeBastard protagonist]] [[spoiler:chains the [[AristocratsAreEvil antagonists]] to the chandelier during a seemingly ZanyScheme, and they are hoisted into the air after being [[KillItWithFire set aflame]].]]

* In ''VideoGame/SunsetRiders'', a game set in the WildWest, the fourth stage with the {{mad bomber}}s features a huge chandelier that dangles around and can be used by {{mooks}} as shooting platforms. [[spoiler: In a subversion, it stays in its place through the whole stage and, when the bosses are killed, it's "peacefully" taken away.]]

* In September 2013 it wasn't the chandelier but a [[http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2013/12/19/apollo-theatre-collapse-in-london_n_4475498.html whole balcony]] that collapsed onto people below in a crowded theatre.
