* The Waste Disposal section of ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 1}}'' had the crushing piston variety.
** The moving walls in ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}'' just as you go from the old Nova Prospekt building to the new one also count, although they're slow-moving enough to get out of the way in plenty of time if you don't panic.

* ''{{Painkiller}}'' also features the "series of stone blocks smashing down" variety. The trap can be subverted with a physics bug, though - they can be stopped and pushed away using the Painkiller like they were chunks of styrofoam gliding on ice.

** The ''SonicGenerations'' reprise of [[SonicUnleashed Rooftop Run]] has a long corridor with a spike-laced DescendingCeiling. Modern Sonic must boost through this corridor in order to avoid getting flattened.

** ''The Two Thrones'' also occasionally features long strings of these. Interestingly, the smashing bits are low enough to climb onto, but due to irregular timing in the traps, it's very difficult trying to ''stay'' on them.

** ''SonicCD'' has some blocks in Wacky Workbench that ''look'' like these, but will actually just drop you into the area below if you [[ViolationOfCommonSense let them "crush" you]]. This is actually necessary to [[GuideDangIt reach a Robotizer]].

* ''GearsOfWar 2'', inside the giant worm. Possibly justified because you're inside its digestive track, so it would naturally have to grind stuff up in there.
* Inside the giant worm-body of the Many in ''SystemShock2'', you also see smashing grinding pillars, which are explicitly supposed to be part of its way of digesting organic material.

* ''OrcsMustDie'' has both of these, both the 'coming down from the ceiling' kind and the 'coming out from the walls' kind are avaiable for purchase, [[DeathCourse in unlimited numbers..]] - VideoGameCrueltyPotential anyone?

* Many of the traps in ''TabletopGame/RoboRally'' go off during certain phases of the turn, making it possible to pass through safely if you can time your movement just right (and don't get pushed off track by one of the other robots).
