** The trigger conditions also vary depending on the color: Green and Red will trigger when anything steps on it, Gray, Brown, Blue and Lihzahrd will only trigger for players and Yellow will trigger for anything ''but'' the player stepping on it. Teal Pressure Pads are unique in that they only trigger when a pet or projectile touches it. Weighted Pressure Plates send a signal when stepping onto it and again when stepping off.

** Subverted in one of the Grimtooth's trap books for d20 systems, which features the "Click Plate", a pressure plate that gives an ominous click when you step on it... [[MindScrew And does nothing else]]. No problem... unless you intersperse them in a trapped dungeon with other plates that go click just before the trap goes off...

* ''VideoGame/TheSims 3: World Adventures'': There are two types of these in the tombs you traverse on your adventures: the kind you just need to step on once to (unlock a door/disable a trap), and the kind that requires constant weight (like say, from a moveable statue in the room).

* In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'', the Ndipaya tribe are apparently very fond of these as even their heavily-guarded ancient uins feature these.

** Some Zelda games take this trope further by including some floor switches that cannot be tripped with Link's weight alone. For example, a couple of floor switches in the "Inside Jabu-Jabu" dungeon in [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]] require Link to be carrying Princess Ruto while stepping on the switch. In [[VideoGame/LegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Majora's Mask]] some switches can only be tripped by the heavy Goron Link.
