* 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.

* There are two several missing floors in ''Film/{{Mirage 1965}}'':

** 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.]]

* Platform 9 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.

** As do some surface stations; Stratford Regional has no platform 7. In general, it's because renumbering a platform requires the signalling system to be redesigned, and it's much simpler just to stop using the number if the platform closes. Thanks to repeated rebuilds of Stratford, its platforms are now numbered in the order 4A,4B,3A,3,5,6,8,9,10,10A,11,12,2,1, with 13-17 in a group on their own.

* In ''XXXHolic'', characters are telling Ghost stories, and Himawari tells one of a hotel that was missing a room; from the outside, you could see the window that belonged to the missing room, but inside, the room was blocked off by a wall. [[spoiler: When the owners tore down the wall they indeed found another room, which had the words 'FATHER LET ME OUT!' scrawled all over the walls in blood.]] * In ''EdenNoOri'', while Akira and co. were in [[spoiler: the pyramid]], they encountered a staircase which had a missing floor. It ended up being a double-floor room for [[spoiler: huge generators]].
