* ''WesternAnimation/DefendersOfTheEarth'' includes a rare example of the heroic team setting this kind of trap. Monitor's security system includes a trap door which opens to reveal an energy mesh which instantly incinerates anything which touches it. This trap is first deployed onscreen when Ming takes control of Dynak-X and turns her against the Defenders. Mandrake nearly falls to his death when the rope he and three of his fellow Defenders are using to cross the pit over the energy mesh breaks, but Lothar pulls him up just in time.

* In ''Anime/YuGiOh'', when Bandit Keith confronts Pegasus at gunpoint (in the dub, he [[FourKidsEntertainment merely points at Pegasus]]) in a last-ditch effort to get revenge. Pegasus nonchalantly opens a TrapDoor that dumps Keith into the ocean. In the manga, he uses his MacGuffin to WELD THE GUN to Keith's hand, and have Keith shoot himself. (Keith in the anime, even in the original Japanese, survives the fall.)

* The Mill levels in ''[[VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry Donkey Kong Country 3]]'' feature trapdoors which buckle open when jumped upon. Sometimes these are locked and the monkeys have to unlock them first before proceeding trough them.

* ''WesternAnimation/DefendersOfTheEarth'' includes a rare example of the heroic team setting this kind of trap. Monitor's security system includes a trap door which opens to reveal an energy mesh which instantly incinerates anything which touches it. Presumably, this was designed with Ming's Ice Robots in mind, but the only time viewers see it deployed is when Ming has taken control of Dynak-X and turned her against the Defenders. Mandrake nearly falls to his death when the rope he and three of his fellow Defenders are using to cross the pit over the energy mesh breaks, but his friends manage to pull him up just in time.
* In ''Visionaries: Knights Of The Magical Light'', Darkstorm has several lever-operated trap doors in his throne room. However, the episode "Honor Among Thieves" sees him (courtesy of Ectar) [[HoistByHisOwnPetard fall into one of these traps]].

** Similarly in Kuma's ending, Kuma does this to Heihachi, who has left him in charge of Heihachi's corporation while he was participating in the tournament, only for Heihachi to somehow climb back up and press another button that opens a trapdoor underneath Kuma.

* ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'': You have 8 Power Stars, so that you can open the first door with the big Star on it. Upon opening it, you run towards the painting with Princess Peach's face on it. Suddenly, it morphs into Bowser's face, and as you jump towards it, you run into an invisible wall... and just as you land, you start falling again. Bowser had installed a trapdoor to the Dark World in that very room anticipating you'd go for the painting in there!
-->'''Bowser''': Bwa ha ha ha! You've stepped right into my trap, just as I knew you would! I warn you, "Friend", watch your step!
