** In ''Literature/HanSoloAtStarsEnd'', Han determines that one of the people on his ship is TheMole. The traitor flees, hoping to find a place on the ''Falcon'' where he can hole up... but stumbles into the airlock instead. Once he gets the information he needs (and the captive has tried to claim Solo's NotSoDifferent) and finds time to quip that it's just as well he stumbled into the airlock since he would've ended up there anyway, Han just hits the button. Since they're in [[HyperspaceIsAScaryPlace hyperspace]], his body is annihilated once he leaves the ''Falcon''[='=]s protective field.

* ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' turned the word "airlock" into a verb. This is the standard method of execution, usually employed to deal with Cylons and suspected Cylon collaborators. Laura Roslin is often referred to as [[FanNickname "Madame Airlock"]] because of her fondness for this method of dealing with undesirables. More recently, [[spoiler:Cally Tyrol]] was murdered by a Cylon in this fashion.

* Mentioned in ''VideoGame/{{Space Quest V|The Next Mutation}}''. When Roger asks why the Eureka's captaincy is vacant, Droole mentions that the last captain had an "unfortunate accident" in the airlock. The nonchalant way it's written and the snarky attitude of the crew more than imply that Droole, Flo, and Cliffy arranged the "accident."

* In the ''StarWars: VideoGame/TheForceUnleashed'' games, in levels set in a space environment (such as on a spacecraft), throwing someone out a window will break the window, space them, cause the ever-so-popular "gale-force winds" that will blow out anybody too close (except yourself), and then a safety door will slam down and cut off the wind.

* ''VideoGame/FTLFasterThanLight'': This is a popular way of dealing with boarding enemies. It's realistic, there is no wind that blows them out (even if you open every door on the ship), but the suffocation is pretty lethal.

Realistically, there is no wind that blows them out (even if you (although it takes a few seconds to vent any room that doesn't open every door on the ship), directly to space), but the suffocation is pretty lethal.


Added DiffLines:

* Near the end of level 3 in ''VideoGame/MDK2'', Doctor Hawkins has to push the lever which opens the airlock on the other side of the large room, promptly blowing all air out and him as well if he doesn't make use of that newly found magnet. Even after making magnetic boots, he's still in danger of suffocating if he doesn't make a spacesuit ([[BatmanCanBreatheInSpace out of a fishbowl]]).

* ''The Algebraist'', by Creator/IainBanks. A GalacticConqueror wants the cooperation of an alien species, so proceeds to space [[AndYourLittleDogToo hundreds of men, women and children]] from the human colony he's just conquered, [[AndIMustScream immobilised yet fully conscious]]. Unfortunately the aliens have BlueAndOrangeMorality so their response amounts to: "Yes, and what do this have to do with us?"

** Can also accidentally happen to Tails in one level set on the ARK: if the explosive packs on an airlock are hit with homing missiles, ExplosiveDecompression ensues, and Tails can get blown out into space if he wonders to close to the hole he just made.

** In ''Literature/TheVorGame'', Oser orders Miles and Co. thrown out of an airlock to [[GenreSavvy eliminate them quickly]], rather than let Miles have time to take over as he had before. It didn't work.
