* Sir Crocodile's "Desert Girasole" attack in ''OnePiece'' involves him using his sand-controlling powers to create a giant whirlpool of quicksand. He does explain, however, that he's tapping into an underground water source to do this, and he's never seen doing it outside of a desert.

*''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'' uses this trope in "The Epic Quest of Unfathomable Difficulty" Quicksand is one of many obstacles they must face on the quest and if that weren't bad enough, this quicksand inflicts LaserGuidedAmnesia!

* The [=RainWings=] in ''Literature/WingsOfFire'' use quicksand as a makeshift prison for [[spoiler:Mastermind]] (they don't have a real prison since they've always punished criminals with exile). They have to pull him out of the quicksand every few hours so he doesn't just die.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/WackyRaces'' LicensedGame for the [[UsefulNotes/NintendoEntertainmentSystem NES]], quicksand is present throughout the Desert world.

Strangely, while Muttley is able to sink in the quicksand, the Army Surplus Special can't.
