* ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2'' for the Game Gear/Master System, has the oddly named Scrambled Egg zone, which is basically a mass of pipes, and you have to very quickly choose ways to go sometimes. Often, you'll get it wrong and get flung into spikes. Trial and error at it's purest. Used slightly in Sonic Chaos's Electric Egg, and less so still in Triple Trouble's Atomic Destroyer, both with less cheap penalties.
** Oh and Sonic Blast's Blue Marine zone, an icy underwater hell full of strong currents and pipes. You can breathe in the pipes, but that is almost the level's only saving grace. To say it is arduous doesn't even cover it.

* Sierra's ''VideoGame/LighthouseTheDarkBeing'' has a puzzle like this, inside the Dark Being's VolcanoLair. You have to manipulate a series of valves in a large grid of thin pipes, to direct steam down to the bottom where a portion of the MacGuffin is. And you're doing it inside a diving bell-like contraption suspended over boiling hot lava.

* Parodied in the retro design of Terry Gilliam's ''Film/{{Brazil}}'', which had exposed ductwork everywhere. It even lampshaded the fact by having somebody advertise ducts on TV.

* Pictured above, the [[UsefulNotes/ApplicationProgrammingInterface OpenGL Pipes]] screensaver introduced in Windows NT 4.0. Windows Vista removed it, but you can still copy the .SCR file from an older version for that retro feel. The more screens you have, the better the effect.

* TruthInTelevision: Visit a power plant sometime. The water/steam pipes really are arranged like this because all that stuff has to go somewhere.
** Refineries are basically made of 5 things: Metal beams, bright lights, tight catwalks, huge containers, all lined with and lots and ''lots'' of pipes.

* ''[[Literature/TheBooksOfEmber The City of Ember]]'' has the Pipeworks workers, whose job is to patch up the incredibly intricate network of pipes that brings water to the citizens. Or rather, they patch up the patches over other patches that someone else, a long time ago, put on some more patches.
