* In the old Lucasfilm adventure game ''{{Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders}}'' the lead character builds a spacesuit out of SCUBA gear (the helmet is a fish bowl sealed with tape). Obviously, not the most serious of games.
* In the video game adaptation of ''ComicBook/RogueTrooper'', some of Rogue's melee animations involve ripping these tubes out of Nort environment suits, exposing them to the toxic air of [[DeathWorld Nu Earth]].

* In the silent movie ''Film/WomanInTheMoon'', Professor Mannfeldt goes out in a diving suit to check that the moon has an atmosphere. After successfully lighting a few matches, he takes off his helmet and celebrates (yes, they knew the moon had no atmosphere in 1929, but silent movie actors depended on FacialDialogue so the audience had to see their face).

* In ''[[Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey 2001: A Space Odyssey]]'', the space suits had an attached air line. When HAL's pod attacks Frank Poole it rips out his air line, causing him to die of vacuum exposure/lack of air. Watch it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XbCsAlweJXk#t=48s here, as Frank frantically tries to re-attach the line]].
