* In ''AWrinkleInTime'' one of the steps on stairs (not stairs on the steps) creaks and Charles Wallace uses that to signal to Meg that he wants a conference.
* In ''SwordOfTruth'', the condition of the stairs in the house which Richard moves into with Nicci is bad enough that he launches into a full-scale tirade at his three thuggish, knife-wielding housemates, saying something along the lines of "put a shirt on and fix those stairs or you'll never amount to anything". Two of them listen, and do end up better for it. The third is another story.

* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' plays a variation: Tavros is repeatedly [[SweetBroAndHellaJeff warned about stairs]], specifically that his new robot legs are not fit for traversing them as of yet. He's got too much [[InsistentTerminology self-confidence]] to heed the warnings, though, and chooses to try going up and down the things to test them out. [[MemeticMutation Much as you'd expect]], his legs fail to handle them properly and he trips down them. Repeatedly.
** Which is is a reference to SweetBroAndHellaJeff by the same author.

* In ''TheBelgariad'', Belgarath has loose step on the stair to his tower. Turns out the reason is that he put a diamond under it, in order to see how long it took for it to be ground to dust. Throughout the books, everyone simply skips that step. At the end, when he's finally repairing the step, he remembers putting the diamond there and why. But because everyone always skipped over the stair, he never will find out how long it would take to grind it down.

* This happened to game show host Jim Peck on ''TheBigShowdown''. The show had a large staircase at the back, and on his way down, Peck tripped on one of the stairs. They [[LeaveTheCameraRunning left the camera running]] as he got up, looked at the audience and said, "Sure, you people would applaud a lynching!" Definitely a CrowningMomentOfFunny.

* In the ''{{Tintin}}'' album ''Recap/TintinTheCastafioreEmerald'', a broken stair in Marlinspike Hall puts Captain Haddock in a wheelchair after he forgets about it. At the end of the story, when he is out of the wheelchair and the stair is freshly repaired, he forgets about it again, steps on the still setting marble, and sends himself flying, undoing the repair in the process.
