* In the backstory of ''TrinityBlood'', [[spoiler: [[NameOfCain Cain]]]] gets thrown out an airlock by his siblings. Not only does he survive being spaced, he (eventually) recovers from ''re-entering Earth's atmosphere''. ''From space''.

** Played with when Grand Moff Tarkin hears that an officer has been spreading (partially true) rumors that Admiral Dalaa was sleeping with the Moff for her position; he jettisons the officer into space in low orbit around the planet in a spacesuit and leaves the suit's comlink on so the rest of the ship can hear his final moments as he plunges into the atmosphere and burns up.

Added DiffLines:

** Actually happens at the end, where Jake orders the 17,000 Yeerks in the Yeerk Pool ship to be flushed. The act is given all of the full gravity and horror that it deserves.

** Actually averted in one of the Ciaphas Cain books, however, at least in terms of the Hollywood Science aspects. Cain is exposed to hard vacuum, but there's no rushing gale, he's not ejected, and he has a few seconds to reach a saviour pod.

* This is how Scroop actually kills Mr. Arrow in Disney's ''Disney/TreasurePlanet''. Later, Jim actually kills Scroop the same way as revenge for Mr. Arrow's murder. Technically, it was into a black hole, as space in the ''Treasure Planet'' universe has air.

* The same spacing incident from the film also happens in the book version of ''2001: A Space Odyssey''. However, in the third sequel, ''[[TheSpaceOdysseySeries 3001: The Final Odyssey]]'', the body of Frank Poole (one of the spaced astronauts) is discovered floating in space. Thanks to the advanced technology of 3001, he is revived, making him of the few non-superpowered individuals to survive spacing.

*** In "Rise" the VillainOfTheWeek gets thrown out of a SpaceElevator, which is so high up in the ionosphere it counts as this trope.

*** Early, on, the Kazon, after stealing a working transporter from ''Voyager'', use it to space to rival Kazon leaders. The ''Voyager'' crew initially assume they just can't use it correctly until Neelix identifies the pair.

* The expansion of the ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' board games lets you do this (fittingly), but [[FridgeLogic for some reason]], only from the Pegasus One, even though the Viper launching tubes are on the Battlestar Galactica.
** I figured it was what automatically happened to the Cylon when he was revealed, considering he goes to the Resurrection ship immediately.

* The expansion of the ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' board games lets you do this (fittingly), but [[FridgeLogic for some reason]], only make reference to this. In particular, the [[DarkerAndEdgier Pegasus Expansion]] introduces the execution mechanic that can be accessed from the Pegasus One, even though Pegasus' airlocks for the Viper launching tubes are on times where brigging someone doesn't feel sufficient. Presumably, Cylon players that reveal themselves (an action that deals damage to the Battlestar Galactica.
** I figured it was what automatically happened to
human players and lands the Cylon when he was revealed, considering he goes to on the Resurrection ship immediately.Ressurection ship) also make a trip through the airlock if they don't die directly during their attack.
