* ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'': [[spoiler: At the end [[TheHero Chell]] wins the fight with Wheatley by opening one portal directly under him and the other one ''[[CrazyAwesome on the surface of the Moon]]'', blowing out everything that isn't nailed down, including the Portal Gun, Wheatley and herself. After they end up hanging on the Wheatley's cable, GLaDOS reaches her mechanical claw in, knocks Wheatley into space and, surprisingly, pulls Chell back, then seals the portal.]] Interestingly, it also completely justifies the "long wind" issue, as it had ''the entire Earth atmosphere'' to equalize.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/Passengers2016'': Jim nearly does this to himself after he becomes depressed from being alone. Apparently there's nothing to stop someone going into the airlock without putting on a space suit and opening it.

* In ''LittleBigAdventure 2'', on the Emerald Moon, you can trick one of the Franco guards inside the base into following you into the airlock, then put on your space suit, which automatically opens the outer door. Bye-bye, Franco guard.

** In one of the original Han Solo books (''Han Solo at Star's End''), 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. In addition, they're in [[HyperspaceIsAScaryPlace hyperspace]] and his body is annihilated once he leaves the ''Falcon'''s protective field.

* ''ASongOfIceAndFire'' by GeorgeRRMartin manages to use the trope despite being a fantasy setting. One castle, built atop a huge mountain, has a door in the throne room that leads directly outside the walls. This is the door unwanted visitors exit through.
** Played straight in his sci-fi horror story ''Nightflyer''. Two passengers on the eponymous spaceship try to find out more about their mysterious and unseen captain by hacking into the ship's computer, only to have an OhCrap moment when they realise the corridor has just been sealed and the cargo-loading hatch above their heads is opening. As they're traveling at superlight speed, the resulting explosion rips them apart and causes major damage to the ship. The survivors correctly assume that this was no accident.
