* ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' "I Shrink Therefore I Am". The crew are shrunk by {{bounty hunter}}s to make them easier to transport and control. Sikozu immediately starts listing all the reasons why this is impossible (their brains should be too simple to function, and they shouldn't be able to breathe normal-sized air molecules) until Rygel tells her to just [[MST3KMantra shut up and accept that the impossible has happened]]. The episode ends with a fight between Crichton and the VillainOfTheWeek, with each trying to shrink the other and resize themselves. Needless to say, someone ends up getting squashed nastily.

** ''WesternAnimation/TransformersRescueBots'' brings us the Minimzer, which shrinks Blades, Boulder, and Heatwave to a few inches tall, preventing them from communicating with the rest of the team.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** TheMaster was armed in many of his appearances with a ray gun called the Tissue Compression Eliminator, which simultaneously killed the target and shrank the corpse down to a convenient-to-dispose-of size. It kept the rule about shrunk objects having less mass, but mostly averted the one about living creatures surviving the process. The novelisations explicitly state at one point that the death is due to realistic SquareCubeLaw effects.
*** The one case where a person miniaturized by the TCE surviving was when [[spoiler: TheMaster accidentally miniaturized himself (From the dialog, it is implied that he actually died, but then regenerated at his smaller size, forcing him to remotely take control of the robot Kamelian to restore himself to normal size.)]] Two characters in the ''Magazine/DoctorWhoMagazine'' comic strip have survived the Tissue Compression Eliminator, ComicBook/DeathsHead presumably because he was a robot and less subject to SquareCubeLaw, and Izzy, for unknown reasons.

* ''Film/HoneyIShrunkTheKids'' hits two of the above points the mass of everything that's shrunk is reduced, and living creatures function perfectly normally. On the other hand, everything that's shrunk has to be manually unshrunk by the same machine, and they're no more fragile than at normal size.
** Note that non-shrunken characters do take care to never touch the shrunken ones.
