Added DiffLines:

* Sauna is intended to cause perspiration, which implies losing body fluids. First-timers are usually advised "to drink a lot" to cover the fluid loss. This is to be interpreted as "[[CaptainObvious to hydrate a lot]]", not to "[[IThoughtYouMeant get plastered a lot]]". Being inebriated in sauna will lead easily on passing out and being dehydrated to death. It is strongly advisable NOT to drink any alcoholic beverages stronger than mild beer in sauna.

* Incredibly, this has actually happened. The World Sauna Championships 2010 in Finland ended in one contestant getting killed and another suffering third degree burns and falling into a coma for two months. Mind you, it was about a contest on being able to stand longest in the hottest sauna. An autopsy revealed that the contestant who died had used painkillers and anesthetics to bypass his physical limitations.

* In ''VideoGame/HitmanCodename47'', the player can kill one of the targets by blocking the door to his steam room and increasing the supply. It helps that he has a heart condition.

* A death trap operating on the same principle (though not made to look at all innocuous, as in some examples) was shown in ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}} vs. Mechagodzilla''.

* The bizarre WidgetSeries ''Kiki Ippatsu Musume'' uses this as one of the many life-and-death situations in which protagonist Kunyan finds herself. Keeping with the series' FinaglesLaw setup, the door isn't locked but she can't open it because both her arms and legs dislocated simultaneously. When she tries to open the door with her mouth, the first attempt bashes her nose against the door and the subsequent nosebleed makes the knob slippery and harder to turn. Yeah, it's that kind of series.
* Anime/LupinIIIRedJacket episode [[Recap/LupinIIIS2E19 "A Safe Bet"]], had a safemaker's son seeking revenge. In this case, it was one of those enclosed one-person units. Lupin, of course, managed to escape and the kid was expecting as much. The sauna was a warning shot.

* The Bookworm once locked Series/{{Batman}} and Robin in a steam room disguised as a giant cookbook, saying it was a recipe for steamed bat. And it wasn't a sauna, it was hooked up to super-heated steam from a steam tunnel.

* In ''Powerhouse'', one of the kids is taking advantage of a weight loss program run by crooks who were using it as a to get the bakery he was working at empty for a robbery with the neighboring bank. Deciding he had outlived his usefulness on the night of the job, he's talked into using their sauna, locks him in and turns up the heat full blast. Fortunately, he was able to manipulate a vent to signal SOS which his friends spotted and rescued him.

* Raoul and the Persian get trapped in one in ''ThePhantomOfTheOpera''. To be fair, it wasn't exactly a "steam room" per se -- more like a "heat-and-optical-illusion room", but it still qualifies.

* Bizarrely used in ''{{Wonderfalls}}'', when the sister and her rival are at the gym rivalling with each other. They then head to the sauna, where the sister storms out, accidentally locking the rival in the sauna. Later, [[spoiler: it turns out that being locked in a sauna forced her to have a crazy Native American vision quest and become leader of her tribe, thus solving every single problem on that show]]. Hooray, logic! But that's how ''all'' the plots in ''Wonderfalls'' work. (That is, they all involve that sort of Rube Goldberg logic, not "every time someone gets locked in a sauna and [[spoiler:has a vision quest]].")

* Appears on ''KennyVsSpenny'' in the "Who can wear a Gorilla suit the longest?" episode, though the endgame was to force the other participant to remove the costume (and lose the competition), not actually ''kill'' them.
