* An episode of ''SpacePrecinct 2040'' had a laser trap inside a bomb. The laser was shown by firing a fire extinguisher not-directly-at the bomb in question.

* ''Under Ten Flags'' (1960) had a British spy breaking the German naval codes out of a safe guarded by invisible beams (he put on infra-red goggles). Rather ironic when you realise the codes were actually obtained by the [[BoringButPractical less glamorous but methodical method]] of Ultra cryptography (still classified at the time the movie was made).

* A strange example in ''Franchise/StarWars Episode I: Film/ThePhantomMenace''. Not actually laser, rather forcefields that turn on and off at intervals, but achieving the same purpose. They were strong enough to stop a lightsaber, so they'd probably disintegrate anyone stupid enough to step into one, but the characters were all smarter than that.

They purpose; breaking up the party so the bad guy can kill the mentor in single combat. Of course, as they were strong enough to stop a lightsaber, so they'd probably disintegrate anyone stupid enough to step into one, but in the characters were middle of a duel and not at all smarter than that.concerned about setting off alarms, there was absolutely no reason they couldn't use their lightsabers on the ''[[CuttingTheKnot emitters]].''

** Played straight in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}''. If you don`t have the right lockpicking perks to bypass it, you have to go through a laser beam corridor to obtain the "Treasure of Jamaica Plain." If you trip a laser beam, [[MoreDakka several machine gun turrets immediately open fire on you]]. Assuming you painstakingly disable every single laser beam without getting filled with bullets, you can finally get your hands on the treasure...[[spoiler:a time capsule filled with mundane pre-War items]].

The ''Automatron'' DLC has a laser hallway in the Mechanist's stronghold, which you can either short out with the decontamination sprinklers, or bypass by picking an Expert-locked door.

* An early version of this trope occurs during the robbery that opens ''The Return of Franchise/ThePinkPanther'' (1975), with the beams (columns of bright light rather than visible lasers) revealed by an aerosol spray can.

Added DiffLines:

* In the opening caper of the Korean heist movie ''The Thieves'', a member of the gang (posing as a PerpSweating mother) gains access to the laser-guarded vault beforehand (under the pretext of ensuring her future son-in-law has sufficient money) and leaves some chewing gum on the laser projector as she walks out. The chewing gum falls off before they've completed the theft, but fortunately the 'mother' and her 'daughter' don't have to stolen artifact on them when they're searched, having already passed it on to another member of the gang.

* ''VideoGame/QuakeII'' has ''many'' such traps, and in one instance as the Marine attempts the jumping puzzle, guards hidden in alcoves in the walls appear to take shots at him. One in E3-M1 could be circumvented via an alternate route.
* In ''VideoGame/QuakeIV'' there is a level in which the player comes across a few space marines nearby a laser hallway. The marines point out that the lasers are deadly, as discovered by one of them who foolishly thought he could dance his way through. The player, however, having been mostly stroggified, can pass through without triggering the trap.

* In a second season episode of ''Series/TheFlash2014'', Captain Cold has to pass one of these to pull off a [[TheCaper diamond heist]]. Not only are the lasers 100% visible, but he is able to use his [[AnIcePerson cold gun]] to ''[[ArtisticLicensePhysics freeze them solid and shatter them]]''.
