* ''Anime/CowboyBebop'''s episode "Toys in the Attic" features a crawling, slimy fridge monster, born from an old fridge with a rock lobster in it that was left abandoned for so long it managed to breed complex organisms. The fridge was unplugged and in storage. The [[AnAesop lesson of the story]] is probably the most useful ever to come from TV: Don't leave stuff in broken refrigerators, or it will go bad. Arguably subverted by the end, however, when it's implied that it was AllJustADream.

** The entire story maintains a subplot of Gently playing a game a chicken with his maid, both trying to trick each other into opening the fridge first. Gently leaves classic "door left unopened" clues such as a hair stuck in the door while his maid messes with those to pretend she ''did'' open it so he would open it and check if anything was moved around.

* In ''Discworld/{{Hogfather}}'', Susan Sto-Helit conducts a forensic examination of the contents of a bag left hanging outside the window in winter (Literature/{{Discworld}}'s low-tech, cut-rate version of refrigeration - [[RealityIsUnrealistic also surprisingly popular with British university students]]). "Now look at this. Leathery bacon, green bread, and a piece of cheese you could shave. She hasn't been here in some time, believe me."

The remote control!-mold... is that... Silkie?? Later, Alfred comes over (with Franchise/{{Batman}}), and asks "Uh? Master Robin? Do you have any food that hasn't expired two months ago, isn't covered in a strange blue substance, or is an unusually large worm?"

* The UsefulNotes/AtariLynx game ''Kung Food'' was based around this trope -- the player is a scientist who's been mutated by chemicals in his fridge into a two-inch-tall green humanoid, who must battle past sentient leftovers to escape the refrigerator and return himself back to normal.
