* ''VideoGame/EvilGenius'': Done The only way to permanently defeat John Steele, the British S.A.B.R.E. super agent, at is to have him in a holding cell when you push the BigRedButton to finish the game's climactic final mission where the titular Evil Genius is launching their DoomsdayDevice and the world's agencies pour an endless number of special agents unto the player's island in attempt to thwart your evil schemes. [[TheBadGuyWins It does not end well for Steele...or the world.]]]] Pushing the button ends the game with your victory, regardless of where Steele may be at the time, so this is a pure BraggingRightsReward.

The DistressedDamsel (or DistressedDude) is in the clutches of the [[CardCarryingVillain Evil Villain]]. Now to dispose [[DeathTrap of them]]. A classic way is to strap them to a rocket just before shooting them off.

This, like most [[DeathTrap death traps]] piles on the drama and [[IndyPloy allows the hero to escape just in the nick of time.]]

* One of the [[Creator/EdmondHamilton Captain Future]] PulpMagazine covers involved the hero's LoveInterest strapped to a small RetroRocket while his RobotBuddy tries to cut her free. A later edition had her ''inside'' the one-woman rocket, peering out through a transparent plate as Captain Future fired his raygun at a villain about to pull a large lever, presumably to send her off.
