* In the end credits sequence of ''Series/GetSmart'', Max leaves CONTROL headquarters and all the doors that opened in the TitleSequence slam shut behind him, except the last one. When Max goes to close them manually, they shut on his nose.

* Inverted in NealStephenson’s SnowCrash: “Residents don’t have time to sit idling at the Burblave entrance watching the gate slowly roll aside in Old South majestic turpitude, so it’s mounted on some kind of electromagnetic railgun.”

** The first arc of the animated series ''Droids'' featured a landspeeder chase scene that used this trope, plus several others (like the ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy) repeatedly and in quick succession. R2-D2 suggests it's a trap, and it turns out it is: Behind the last set of slow doors is a dead end and a bunch of guys with blasters.

* Used with crazy timing in ''Webcomic/ElfQuest'': [[http://www.elfquest.com/gallery/OnlineComics/SAS/DisplaySAS.html The Searcher and the Sword]], when two elves are trying to escape from [[spoiler:crazed trolls]]. What's crazy about it is that it's implied that the elves had plenty of time to escape, except that the rescue party's entrance alerts their enemies, who ''then'' check on the prisoners, see that they're gone, and trigger the trap, leaving the escapees to vault through the door at the last second. Drama! Did I mention that this is all done with giant slabs of stone a la Egyptian tomb? Read up on the thrilling escape [[http://www.elfquest.com/gallery/OnlineComics/SAS/DisplaySAS.html?page=76 here]].

* The final level of SyphonFilter has this. You have to make it through a missile silo before the missile blasts off. There's a slowly closing blast door, and the controller has an UnnecessaryCombatRoll button. Do the math.

* Averted in ''Film/ManOfSteel'', enabling the holographic Jor-El to use them in helping Lois Lane escape General Zod's ship. A female mook charges in with a hand blaster, only for a door to slam down knocking the blaster out of her hand so Lois can use it, and trapping the mook on the opposite side. Jor-El cuts off several other guards this way, when there's too many for Lois to shoot.
