* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' by Creator/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.

* Almost done to Eve and WALL•E from ''WesternAnimation/WallE'', though they manage to stay in the ship. Of course given that they already were in space five minutes or so before, this would not have been lethal.

* ''Series/BlakesSeven''. Servalan leaves a magnetic bomb in the airlock of Warlord Zukan's spacecraft. Zukan sends in his aide to remove it, blowing him out the airlock the moment he detaches the bomb from the metal wall. Unfortunately the bomb explodes at that point fatally crippling the spacecraft, so the warlord dies anyway.
** In another episode, Avon tries to airlock [[spoiler:Vila]] when they're both stuck on an escape pod that needs to lose a lot of weight quickly to avoid crashing. Things get... pretty dark before an alternative solution is found.

* Ford and Arthur in ''Radio/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy''. They survived the airlock toss thanks to the Infinite Improbability Drive, in a surreal scene involving MovingBuildings, detached limbs, penguins, and an infinite number of monkeys using an infinite number of typewriters (which naturally resulted in a Shakespeare script). It's kind of hard to explain.

** Which is probably why the film replaced it with a less "odd" scene involving sofas.
** However, the BBC television adaptation, despite its much smaller budget, portrayed the scene much closer to the book.
