** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E10Midnight "Midnight"]]: [[spoiler:After the Hostess realizes that Sky has been possessed by the unseen entity, she grabs her, opens the door and [[HeroicSacrifice let the truck's safety system throw them both into the vacuum]]. Note that the door was the one that leads to the cockpit (which has been torn apart from the rest of the truck earlier), hence the lack of airlock. The actual exit door (which has an airlock) is located at the back of the truck.]]

** In the episode "Ariel", Mal almost does this to Jayne for ratting Simon and River out to the Feds on Ariel for the reward money. Jayne fearfully states that this "ain't no way for a man to die," and though Jayne wanted both of the Tams off the ship for a variety of reasons, as Mal vehemently points out during the confrontation, "[[AFatherToHisMen you turn on any of my crew, you turn on me!]]"

* ''Webcomic/{{Narbonic}}'' parodies "The Cold Equations" (mentioned above) in [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/shaenongarrity/narbonic_plus/series.php?view=archive&chapter=39493 this week]] of strips.
* In ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'', Petey dumps a bunch of {{Space Marine}}s out of an airlock that wasn't there until he boarded the ship. (He didn't just cut a hole; he "installed" a complete airlock.) But the marines are all wearing PoweredArmor, so they should be able to reach one of the other ships nearby. It's also what LOTA threatens to do if the Toughs get too close to his memory banks (he's justified; he found out they had a backup plan to assassinate him just in case).
* In one of the fillers for {{SSDD}} the misconceptions about throwing people out the airlock were addressed, apparently spacing is a slow and painful way to die and they just stay in the airlock until poked with a stick though if you have a window in the airlock you can [[http://www.poisonedminds.com/d/20090515.html watch them WRIGGLE!!]]



* In a ''Webcomic/BiterComics'' [[http://www.bitercomics.com/comic/interstellar-bouncer/ strip]] the captain orders a prisoner's execution in this manner. A crew member obliges in a bit too literal sense, attempting to actually throw the prisoner out.
* ''ComicBook/BuckGodotZapgunForHire'': The first sign that a species isn't welcome in the Gallimaufry station's sector is their entire embassy aboard the station getting ejected into space through its airlock-roof. It also seems to be the local SufficientlyAdvancedAlien's preferred execution method when he doesn't just disintegrate the offender.
* The Gazelles in ''Webcomic/CommanderKitty'' do this to [[http://www.commanderkitty.com/2009/11/14/could-this-be-the-end/ Nin Wah]] in the most inconsiderate, irresponsible, JerkAss way possible. After she's convicted (of not paying a hotel bill), it turns out they can't afford to lock her up due to budget cuts and instead sentence her to 15 minutes of community service. Which happens to involve cleaning up ''outside'' the space station, ''without'' a spacesuit (also due to budget cuts). Hey, they had to pay for Frank's party somehow; the guy got promoted last week!
