* ''CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers'': Though the DrowningPit and SealedRoomInTheMiddleOfNowhere also made an appearance or two, the most popular DeathTrap hands down for the Planeteers was a room slowly filling up with poisonous vapors. Makes sense from the villains' point of view, since the protagonists' rings stop working if the area is heavily contaminated with environmental pollutants. Otherwise, they could just call the [[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation blue man in his underpants]] to get them out...

* In an early chapter of the Manga/LupinIII manga, a guard said Lupin would be heading to the GasChamber. [[SympatheticInspectorAntagonist Inspector Zenigata]] knows that the method of execution at this particular joint is the electric chair and any guard would've known that. He has just enough time to figure out the guard is actually Lupin in disguise before Lupin [[XanatosBackfire uses this knowledge against him]] and he sets off to rescue the guard Lupin sent to be electrocuted in his place. This story was adapted into the Anime/LupinIIIGreenJacket episode [[Recap/LupinIIIS1E4 "One Chance to Breakout"]].

Employed Famously employed in some programmes of UsefulNotes/TheHolocaust.



* Some of the elements of UsefulNotes/TheHolocaust implemented by UsefulNotes/NaziGermany:
** Shower rooms in some German Asylums, sealed to make them artight and piping in carbon monoxide produced as industrial byproducts, during the 1939-41 ''T-4'' Involuntary Euthanasia programme for German citizens with congenital disabilities and mental illnesses.
** Converted vans utilising carbon-monoxide exhaust at Riga and the Treblinka extermination facility during the 1942-3 ''Operation Reinhard'' to dispose of the non-skilled Jews of Greater Germany and the Generalgouvernement (Poland). These were retired upon the successful completion of the programme.
** Two, and later four, faux 'shower rooms' at the Auschwitz-II/Birkenau extermination facility to dispose of Undesirables rendered Unfit by disease, overwork, and underfeeding while being rented out as slaves to various German companies responsible for their welfare. The facilities were partially demolished during the second week of the Soviet ''Vistula-Oder'' Offensive of January 1945, and were discovered by Soviet forces on the 27th of January. In their haste to leave with the Fit-for-work inmates, the Security Police abandoned 1.2 million sets of clothing and 8 tons of human hair.

* UsefulNotes/NaziGermany used two main types of this.
** There were the well known death camp "showers" where people were sent into fake bathhouses and gassed to death. In some places, such as Auschwitz, they used Zyklon B gas, a cyanide-based pesticide. At Treblinka, where the Jews of Warsaw and other parts of Poland were annihilated, they used carbon monoxide. Less well known and not used much were trucks where the people were loaded into the back, airtight doors shut and the truck exhaust pumped in. These were not economically practical and were discontinued.

A Gas Chamber would be any room or facility where the victim will suffocate to death or be asphyxiated. An actual equivalent to the Gas Chamber might be used, a room where [[DeadlyGas noxious or poisonous gas]] is being fed through the ventilation system. Or, it could be a room with a vacuum sucking all the air out, or people could just be [[AlmostOutOfOxygen left in a sealed room]] to eventually choke on their own carbon dioxide.

Serious NightmareFuel, with the extra horror of being TruthInTelevision for several million people during [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo The Holocaust.]] A villain contemplating using one has usually crossed the MoralEventHorizon of villainy.
