* ''Franchise//RatchetAndClank'': Both [[VideoGame/RatchetAndClank2002 the original]] and ''[[VideoGame/RatchetAndClankGoingCommando Going Commando]]'' have movement sensitive conveyor belts. When Ratchet's moving on them they sense his direction and move to speed him on his way.

* The board game ''RoboRally'' takes place in a factory, so the belts have some reason to be there. However, some of them are arranged into swirling maelstroms of death which tip anything on them into bottomless chasms. (To say nothing of the pushers, crushers, lasers, and radioactive goo.)

->''Exacerbating the situation, [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros Mario]] said, is the seemingly arbitrary placement of the hazards. "I could see why, if you're in a [[EternalEngine factory]], you might find yourself jumping around on dangerous conveyor belts moving in different directions," he said. "But why would you have conveyor belts in a [[BigFancyCastle castle]]? Or in the middle of a [[TheLostWoods forest]]?"''

* ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaChroniclesOfSorrow'' (''Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow'') has a habit of taking this trope and laughing at you with it. Conveyor belts are not all too common in the game, but once you meet them (in the clock tower), they make you wish they did not exist. The belts alone are not dangerous, it is the combination of being attacked, risk of getting [[TakenForGranite stoned]] and landing in a spike pit. Not fun especially since a stoned character takes a crapload of damage from the spike pits.
** The things return with a vengeance in ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaPortraitOfRuin'', and throw in collapsing platforms to make it even worse!
* ''VideoGame/ChipsChallenge'': Among the hazards is conveyer belts, frequently leading either backwards in the level, or into another, more fatal hazard. At least there was a powerup (suction cup shoes) that let you ignore them.

* ''VideoGame/{{Shantae}} snd the Pirate's Curse'' has a lot of these in the [[TechnoWreckage Abandoned Factory]], placed around Spikes of Doom, Bottomless Pits, and falling ice blocks. However, some of them are actually helpful since you could use them to charge up [[SprintShoes Risky's Boots]] for an obstacle destroying DashAttack.
