* If we're looking for a pyramid-shaped building complete with [[ChaosArchitecture moving three-dimensional puzzle hallways and chambers]], where death can jump at you from every angle in the form of deadly monsters, look no further than the movie ''Film/AlienVsPredator''. That pyramid was explicitly designed to be a maze where [[EverythingTryingToKillYou a lurking enemy]] ''[[EverythingTryingToKillYou is]]'' [[EverythingTryingToKillYou trying to kill you]] and the hunter can become the hunted.

* The finale location in HeavyRain. Conveyor Belts which lead into meat grinders, a pit filled with water that can be used to drown kids, Pipes lying around for no reason...''Almost'' justified when you discover it's a scrap reprocessing plant. [[FridgeLogic But then it just raises more questions!]]

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Thundercats 2011}}'' episode "Journey to the Tower of Omens" has a video game-style TempleOfDoom and ''makes its existence make sense.'' A bunch of {{Warrior Monk}}s created it to guard a holy book that no-one else should have (hence the gratuitous sharp objects). ''They'' are extremely {{badass}} and know where all the traps are, so it would probably be easy for its makers to use. Anyone else would have a hard time not getting ground into hamburger. * The original '80s ''WesternAnimation/{{Thundercats}}'' series has Baron Karnor's tower from the episode "The tower of Traps", in the 1st season. Lion-O and [=WilyKit=] have to deal with several {{Booby Trap}}s through the whole tower.

* A borderline case occurs in NeilGaiman and Creator/TerryPratchett's ''Literature/GoodOmens'', with the M25 London orbital motorway. While it isn't actively trying to kill anyone, it ''is'' in the [[ArtifactOfDoom shape of a glyph]] from the ancient [[ReligionOfEvil Black Priesthood of Ancient Mu]] that means [[OminousLatinChanting "Hail the Great Beast, Devourer of Worlds."]] The frustration of travelers on the M25 is described as perpetually generating a form of low-grade evil into the surrounding landscape. later it becomes a straight example, when such leaking evil turned it into a lethal barrier that was at both the hottest and coldest temperatures conceivable ''at the same time''. needless to say, crossing it was a bad idea.

* Not only is eponymous castle of ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'' crawling with traps, but the original I6 module offers a ''literal'' example of this trope: one of the castle's towers is alive, and tries to dump you off its stairs or whack you with the halberds mounted on its interior walls.

* In ''Nosgoth'' there is a section of the map "The Fane" that, as a result of the rubble from the humans blasting in, is practically a cage. Well coordinated Sentinels can pick up a human victim and throw them in there to be alone with the rest of the vampire team, because that's the only way any humans are getting in. The only way of escaping quickly? Suffering fall damage. Which the vampires don't suffer. And they will chase you.
