* One screen in the text adventure ''Death in the Caribbean'' is a patch of quicksand within a foggy swamp, which you'll sink into and die if you don't have a length of rope to throw around a tree to help pull yourself back to safety. A hat on said screen implies that an explorer who came before you fell victim to it.

* In ''[[Literature/ThePavilionOnTheLinks The Pavilion on the Links]] by Robert Louis Stevenson, the quicksand even has a name: Graden Floe, a piece of treacherous terrain which is said to swallow a man in "four minutes in a half". The protagonist saves his love interest from walking into it. One of the antagonists is not so lucky - only his hat remains as proof of his gruesome demise.

* After signing the Magna Carta, King John of England (Robin Hood's enemy) tried to renege on the deal by raising an army to fight against the rebellious barons; his plan was foiled when the packhorse carrying the Royal treasury (i.e all his gold) and the Crown Jewels fell into quicksand while crossing The Wash (a large bay on the English east coast) and sank immediately; realising they would not now get paid, all his knights deserted. The next King, Henry III, had to be "crowned" with a plain gold ring, as the country could not afford to replace the Crown.

* One episode of ''TheManShow'' has a segment advertising fake products. One of those was "Quicksand Kitty Litter," which causes cats that step in it to sink in and drown. Technically, it does what it's advertised to do: free you of the responsibility of cleaning the litter box.
* In ''XenaWarriorPrincess,'' one round with Xena's EvilCounterpart, Callisto, culminates in Xena and Callisto falling into this, Xena manages to get out, Callisto doesn't. [[BackFromTheDead Not that her death lasted long]]
