* In the Original Campaign of ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'', one of the side-quests involves holding a conversation with a child standing outside her house. She tells you that a secret passage opens behind a certain piece of furniture in her house when someone says "Hal-u-eth" (the name of a famous historical figure in the game). If you use the piece of furniture and you have this information, you get the chance to say "Halueth" and you get sent to the side-quest area.

* In ''The EnchantedForestChronicles'', a gate in the Caves of Fire and Night is protected by a spell like this; originally the key was just "open sesame" but the dragons had to keep making it more complicated. The one we hear is a rhyming couplet followed by the word "alberolingarn".

* Throughout the second half of the short, "When You're Hot..." from the ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' episode, "[[Recap/TinyToonAdventuresS2E2GoingPlaces Going Places]]", Plucky unsuccessfully attempts to open a box that says, "OPEN IN CASE OF FIRE" to put out a fire at Acme Looniversity. When Buster tells him to get the box open, Plucky tells him, "I've tried everything except saying, 'Open Sesame!'". Turns out, saying "Open Sesame!" opens the box.

* Played ''excessively'' straight in ''Series/TheOuterLimits1995'', in the episode "The Haven": the ultra-secure, ultra-private apartments in the titular residential complex are ''so'' heavily automated that even the kitchen cabinets can't be opened or closed unless the resident tells them to. This backfires when the male lead can't even get into his own fridge when the system stops working.
