* The firefighters of Battalion 24 on ''Series/ThirdWatch'' regularly used a pole to go from their ready room to their trucks and equipment. Unusually, the show actually depicted some of the minutiae of using the pole, with it being kept behind a small gate with the hole being covered by a hatch that opens automatically when the gate it opened. Also, the dangers of the pole are shown when Paramedic Carlos Nieto decides to give it a try without ever having learned how to use it and plummets down to the ground (paramedics normally take the stairs).

'''Archer''': For basically putting a pole where the garbage shoot already is already is. But the co-op board was all like, "where are we going to throw the garbage?"\\

* ''Film/TheDarkKnight'''s (presumably temporary) Batcave was accessed by... unlocking a storage container on a condemned piece of Wayne Enterprises property. To put it mildly, this is the least dramatic thing in the movie.

* ''[[Film/WaynesWorld Wayne's World 2]]'' had a fire pole revealed by pressing a button inside a bronze bust. Funnily enough everyone ''but'' Wayne uses the pole, while Wayne takes the "scenic route," otherwise known as the elevator, to give him time to give the necessary beginning-of-the-movie exposition.

* Many superhero tropes are loving reproduced in ''Film/SkyHigh'', including twin bat poles for the husband-and-wife superheroes Commander and Jetstream behind a secret panel in the den. When Commander takes his son into the secret lair for the first time, he has him use his mother's pole.

* Averted in the Australian TV series ''Series/{{Fire}}'', where the fireman can't use the pole because it violates Occupational Health and Safety regulations (i.e. too many people have been injured using it).

* ''HongKongPhooey'' made the change to hero from his janitor alter-ego by jumping into a filing cabinet. A RunningGag in the series was the ability of his sidekick, Spot the cat, to produce the filing cabinet from out of nowhere whenever trouble arose. Another Running Gag was the former's tendency to become stuck inside until Spot gave the cabinet [[PercussiveMaintenance a good whack]].

* ''TheJetsons'' had numerous variations, mainly involving a just-barely-awake George going through a carwash-like assembly line of automated morning hygiene and dressing, often with the wrong buttons pushed for [[RuleOfFunny comedic results]], such as winding up in his wife's makeup.

** Specifically, ''Ray'' wanted to buy the place because the pole was so cool and fun to use, and he was the one fronting the money. Egon had been busily explaining to Peter all the ways the the building was grossly inadequate for their needs.
*** Egon's deliberately being unenthusiastic in order for the realtor not to think she's got a shoo-in. Ray then ruins it, which is why the realtor smiles triumphantly.

* In the 2008 movie adaptation of ''Film/IronMan'', Tony Stark had him suit up in his CoolGarage with the assistance of mechanized arms reminiscent of a car factory to put on each piece.
** And then the trope is subverted when the same mechanical arms are used to try to take the suit off. Turns out it doesn't work very well with a squishy human being pinched and pulled in lots of different directions by all the equipment as they try to detach all the parts of the armor.
*** The problem with the unsuiting actually was that the armor had been battle-scarred so much that the bolts had bent, the metal was dented et cetera, making the suit almost impossible to deconstruct.
** Tony has it perfected by ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' with a device on the roof of Stark Tower that easily takes his suit off while he calmly strolls across it.
