* One British war movie had an agent 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 less glamorous but methodical method of Ultra cryptography (still classified at the time the movie was made).

* 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]]''.

* In the ''Series/NCISLosAngeles'' episode "Deliverance," [[ActionGirl Kensi]] is kidnapped and held in a room full of lasers; breaking one of the beams will set off a bomb. Fortunately, [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass Deeks]] has a laser of his own (for whatever reason) which he uses to fool the laser sensors so Kensi can escape.
** It was the targeting laser on his gun.

** The Creator/TomBaker arc "City of Death" features a variation; as Count Scarlioni demonstrates how he plans to steal the [[MonaLisaSmile Mona Lisa]], he shows a holographic recreation of the famed painting in the Louvre. He shows a laser grid in front of the painting which will trigger "every alarm in Paris" if tripped. Using a device that will [[TechnoBabble "alter the refractive index of the air itself"]], he bends the laser beams so the Mona Lisa can be removed safely.

** Played straight in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}''. If you don`t have the right lockpicking perks, 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]].
