* As a potential {{shoutout}} to [[VideoGame/MegaMan2 Quick Man's stage]], ''VideoGame/AngryVideoGameNerdAdventures'' has timed instant-death rays in the "Future Fuckballs 2010" and "Laughin' Jokin' Numbnuts" stages.

Added DiffLines:

* A miniaturised, [[DeconstructedTrope more plausible]] version of this appears in the Museum track of ''VideoGame/ReVolt'', triggering an alarm in the background as cars pass through it.

* Averted in ''Anime/NewGetterRobo'': in the second episode some people pass through laser sensors that weren't visible to them ([[RuleOfPerception only to the audience from an angle where they were practically pointed at the camera]]) and were aimed in five different angles, making it so it'd be all but impossible to get past them even if you could see them.

* An episode of ''Series/SpacePrecinct2040'' had a laser trap inside a bomb. The laser was shown by firing a fire extinguisher not-directly-at the bomb in question.

It was pretty offensive they would invoke at ''least'' 4 of the worst tropes in fiction in what is supposed to be a convention-smashing ground-breaking series, including EverythingIsOnline and PacmanFever, which you would assume would be eradicated in early drafts when your target audience -- to the point that people far enough outside it are ''unable to even gain access to view your show'' -- is Internet-savvy computer geniuses.

* ''FightScience'' employed a non-moving visible laser hallway to demonstrate a female ninja's flexibility and kinesthetic sense.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/SWATKats'' episode ''The Dark Side of the SWAT Kats'', our heroes (and their [[EvilCounterpart Evil Counterparts]]) have to jump through one of these to break into Pumadyne Weapons Lab.

* ''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.
