** In ''The Joker's Five-Way Revenge'' (a notable comics story marking the return of the [[MonsterClown psychotic murderous]] [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation version of the character]]), the Joker threatens an old henchman (who he suspects of having betrayed him) with this... unless Batman volunteers to take his place. Naturally, Batman accepts. Naturally, the Joker reneges and dumps them both in the pool. Naturally, Batman beats the trap, rescues the hostage, and collars the Joker.

* In one ''Comicbook/{{Daredevil}}'' storyarc, the hero ends up in an old mansion [[DeathTrap converted into a gigantic house of DEATH]]. At one point, he gets thrown into a tube and ends up in a pool... which, [[ForgotToFeedTheMonster due to lack of maintenance, featured a half empty base, and a suffocating shark]]. Subversion!
* Played with in ''ComicBook/{{Sillage}}'' by Ehmte-Ciss-Ronn. His race is naturally aquatic and his shark-equivalents smart enough to recognise him as their master. So instead of activating a trap door, the panic button under his desk instantly floods the whole office.

* In the 1986 ''WesternAnimation/TransformersTheMovie'', anyone the Quintessons found "innocent" was dropped into a tank filled with Sharkticons. [[AllThereInTheManual According to supplementary material]] the Quintessons would also drop people they found guilty into the tank of Sharkticons. Apparently, they were just {{Jerkass}}es like that.

* The opening scene of the French movie ''Le Magnifique'': A spy is trapped in a phone booth, which is then lifted by an helicopter (!!) and dipped into the sea, where a squad of frogmen attach it to a shark's cage before opening the door. The scene is purposefully over-the-top as it's a parody of the whole ''James Bond''/''OSS 117'' type of spy literature.

* In ''TheVampireDiaries'' the moonstone is placed in a well filled with vervain, making it an AcidPool to vampires. It also contains snakes, though possibly only by coincidence.
