* In the library arc of ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', the girls and Negi are running from what they think is a killer golem and find an elevator, only to find that their combined weight is above the capacity limit. This being a fanservice-heavy series, the girls start stripping to reduce weight.

to:

* On ''Series/GimmeABreak'', Nell and several members of her overweight support group do this. The founder of the group was in his top-floor apartment contemplating suicide and the others wanted to stop him. The weight causes the elevator to get stuck, the people inside argue for a while, then try going down in the elevator, which works. Nell gets off at the lobby but the elevator then closes and goes back up, now no longer over capacity, forcing Nell to have to take the stairs.
* An episode of ''Series/NightCourt'' had the elevator fail with only four people on board: Dan, Roz, ... and two sumo wrestlers.

It doesn't even have to be suddenly crammed for this trope to apply. It could even involve the elevator slowly filling up with passengers until it reaches its breaking point, or [[WaferThinMint one extra passenger getting in a totally packed car]]. Either way, it's no good.

* This was deliberately done in one ''Magazine/SpyVsSpy'' comic, with White tricking Black into carrying several 1000-pound weights on an elevator (he thinks they are White's secret plans).

* In one episode of ''DetectiveConan'', the elevator gets stuck when a group of characters get in. Later, Conan gets an EurekaMoment when he remembers that he is now a kid, and thus too light for the elevator to go over capacity [[spoiler:There is a dead body on the roof of the elevator.]]

* Near the end of an episode of ''TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'', Will is on an elevator when dozens more people get on. He looks at the maximum capacity sign, and then begins to scream.
