* In the latest expansion to ''EVEOnline'', named 'Incursion', the Space-Zombies {AKA Sansha's Nation} has these all over their ships and structures. Well, technically, they're just spikes, but if you see a Sansha Fleet, you're screwed, unless you brought reinforcements. On the upside, though, that's only when they really begin their Incursions. Mission-Running against Sansha is no more dangerous than against the Angel Cartel, Blood Raiders, Serpentis or Guristas... Well, until they start using ECM, Stasis Webifiers AND Warp Scramblers... Which they do a lot. Simultaneously. (Thank CPP for F.O.F. Missiles)

* In ''VideoGame/{{Battletoads}}'', the platforming stages are rather packed with OneHitKill floor spikes and SpikeballsOfDoom. One section of one level took it so far as to cover every stable surface with spikes; to survive, you had to use giant snakes as temporary platforms.

* The infamous NintendoHard game ''VideoGame/{{Battletoads}}'' had tons of these. One section of one level took it so far as to cover every stable surface with these - to survive, you had to use giant snakes as temporary platforms.

* A recurring motif in ''Literature/TheSagaOfDarrenShan'' series:
** The vampires' method of execution involved putting the victim in a cage and dropping them face down onto a pit of these. In-universe, this is cited as the origin of the "kill a vampire with a wooden stake" legend.
** Later, the main villain of the second half, [[spoiler: Steve Leopard,]] is fond of setting up places that look like this, to have the heroes meet him in for a duel. The fact that it looks like the aforementioned execution grounds adds emotional punch. [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice Someone does die on them in his setups, though.]] With fire.
