* The last season of ''Series/TheA-Team'' had an episode where Murdock is infiltrating a mental hospital. He and Hannibal discover a secret floor because the elevator takes longer than usual to go between particular floors.
* In the eponymous ''AreYouAfraidOfTheDark'' episode, the thirteenth floor exists, but its occupants have long since disappeared. Turns out that the former residents are aliens, and they're coming back for their daughter, Karin.

* The ''[[Series/TheTwilightZone Twilight Zone]]'' episode "The After Hours" has a 9th floor in a department store that's less than 9 stories high. [[spoiler:It's where the store mannequins hang out when they're waiting to have their month out among living people.]]

* In an episode of ''The Avengers'' a hotel actually has an unlisted 13th floor which is used to capture and brainwash scientists. No one expects there to be a 13th floor so they don't suspect there are two "12th" floors.

** Another example from O'Hare is in the concourse letters: they have concourses B, C, E, F, G, H, K, L, and M. There actually used to be a Concourse D at O'Hare (which can be seen [[http://airchive.com/galleries/13511.jpg here]]), which was used by carriers like AirCal, Braniff, Continental, Eastern, Northwest Orient, Piedmont and United Express, but it was demolished as well to make room for the current Terminal 1 concourses. ORD, however, has never had a Concourse I or Concourse J.

* In the short story/prose poem "E is for Elevator People", author Harlan Ellison describes certain elevators via which, if you accidentally press the Basement button too many times, you are taken down to "the caverns". Very bad things happen there.

** Actually there are four other missing floors. At the beginning the hero chases a woman down the stairs in the dark (the power has been shut off) and goes down four sub-basements to emerge in the boiler room. Later those floors aren't there. [[spoiler: He has amnesia but doesn't know it yet. Those four floors below ground is where he worked in a lab in California. It's a random memory.]]

* In a rare example involving stairs instead of an elevator, in the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "The Lodger", people who go up the stairs to the second floor loft above Craig's flat tend to disappear. When Craig's best friend/secret crush Sophie visits the second floor loft, Craig and the Doctor follow her. Meanwhile Amy(who is stuck in the TARDIS outside of space and time) contacts the Doctor and informs him that she was able to find the plans for Craig's apartment building. "[[OhCrap There is no upstairs!]]"

* Platform 9¾ from ''Literature/HarryPotter'' is a variation, accessed by walking through the barrier between platforms. Number Twelve Grimmauld Place (the Black family home) could be considered the street address version of this trope, as the house at that address is only visible by magic.
