** It's possible for a PunkInTheTrunk to invoke a similar MinorCrimeRevealsMajorPlot. If the car is an older model or the interior trunk release is disabled, it may be possible to pry off the lining to get at the cords leading to one of the tail lights. Disabling one increases the chance that the car will be noticed by the police.

* On ''WWERaw'' Kane and TripleH were in a feud (the [[SarcasmMode ever popular]] Katie Vick angle), and at the end of the episode Kane tossed Trip into a car's trunk and drove off - but then we saw the car trunk pop open just as they were going to black! Oops. Dealt with at the top of the next episode:
-->'''TripleH''': I've got a special guest gonna come out here later - but before we come to that, I'd like to give a little personal message to Kane. Kane, this is just advice, but next time you try to accost somebody by sticking them into the trunk of a car, you should try to make sure that the trunk does not have one of those child safety latches on the roof - I mean, you can just pull it and jump OUT of the trunk before the person even drives off. Just a bit of advice.

* In "Living Doll", Creator/CliffRichard sings that he's going to lock said girl in a trunk so a better-looking man can't steal her away from him. Though it could be the other kind of trunk. As Rick from ''Series/TheYoungOnes'' said while doing a cover, locking girls in trunks is politically unsound, and think of [[ComicallyMissingThePoint what it does to the elephants]].

* In the spy thriller ''Running Blind'', by Desmond Bagley, Alan Stewart captures DoubleAgent Slade, hiding him in the boot of his car and intending to exchange him for his [[IHaveYourWife girlfriend, captured by the KGB]]. Pretending to the KGB that Slade is hidden elsewhere, Stewart tells his girlfriend to drive the car to the nearest American base and hand him over the CIA agent there (advising her to use the word "trunk" or he won't know where to look). Unfortunately a KGB agent searches the car for the MacGuffin and finds a pissed-off Slade instead.
