* The second episode of ''[[VideoGame/{{Backdoor}} [=BackDoor=]]]'' includes an abandoned factory with a bunch of conveyor belts. One room uses one as a BrokenBridge, while another room uses them to form a maze.



* ''VideoGame/BionicCommando Rearmed'' has ''[[SpikesOfDoom spiked]]'' conveyor belts in Area 9.



* ''VideoGame/{{VVVVVV}}'' has lots of them.

In top-down games, a conveyor belt will often act as a BrokenBridge, going too fast for you to be able to run against. It's a one-way trip unless you can find a way to shut it off or reverse it.

* ''VideoGame/{{Exile}} III'': The golem factory was a maze of these. In the ''VideoGame/{{Avernum}} III'' remake, this puzzle was replaced by one involving mirrors and laser beams.

This is almost always a sub-trope of MalevolentArchitecture. (It could be some sort of BenevolentArchitecture, but don't count on it.) Justified by the RuleOfFun, though it can get irritating on occasion, particularly when used with other, nastier hazards like SpikesOfDoom, [[SmashingHallwayTrapsOfDoom Smashing Hallway Traps]], {{Descending Ceiling}}s and the like.

* ''VideoGame/BlueDragon'' has conveyor belt puzzles, in which you will generally need to flip a switch to make them go the opposite direction, since it's not possible to actively move around on them, for [[{{InsurmountableWaistHeightFence}} some weird reason]].

* ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet'' has these in [[ScrappyLevel the Bunker]], surrounded by electricity. And then there's the wheel, which is similar, in that it's a big rotating wheel and you are inside it. Surrounded by electricity.

** ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 Sonic 2006]]''. The only conveyor belts in the game switch direction for no particular reason, dropping whatever is unfortunate enough to be placed on them down a level-wide BottomlessPit.
** From ''Sonic3DBlast'', the Gene Gadget stage is filled with these. Much like the Quartz Quadrant example above, that boss also utilizes one of these.

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'': Hotland has a lot of these. Sometimes they're useful, as they help you get to places faster, but sometimes they're not. In some rooms, you're required to get to certain areas on one of these, but there are also lasers that will hurt you if you don't stay still, which is impossible to do on a conveyor belt. This actually gets [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] a few times.

--> '''Papyrus''': CONVEYOR BELTS EVERYWHERE?? ARE YOU SERIOUS?

--> Later, after befriending Undyne...

-->'''Papyrus''': LASERS ON CONVEYORS? ARE YOU SERIOUS???
-->'''Undyne''': Hey,
this trope]].reminds me of a puzzle idea.
-->'''Papyrus''': OH MY GOD??? NO??? WHY???? I THOUGHT YOU HATED MAKING UP PUZZLES!!
-->'''Undyne''': Yeah, but I love driving you crazy!

* ''{{Action 52}}'': Even the Active Enterprises game ''Cheetahmen'' managed to contain them. Due to ''Action 52'' being a [[GameBreakingBug bug breeding ground]], results were [[WrapAround messy]].

** The level Frantic Factory in ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong64'' has conveyor belts in some sections. One of them adds trash compactors as well, so the only one who can go through them is the eponymous character when he's using the invincibility barrel ability.



** Casino Paradise Zone from ''SonicAdvance'' also has these. It's a rather strange place for conveyor belts, isn't it?
